Great hide and seek with the kids

We were staying very close by so walked to the ruins. Very scenic area and the autumn leaf colour added to the views. Ruins impressive and neighbouring church was quaint.

We were fortunate that the weather was good when we visited and the contrast of the abbey ruins against the bright blue Autumn sky was spectacular. The information boards explained the history and we found that very interesting too.

This ancient monument is in a beautiful setting. My great great grandfather, who was an agricultural labourer, lived here in a house called Troed y Rhiw, before he moved to become a coal miner in Blaenrhondda in the 1870s. The village is tranquil and it's hard to imagine that the White Monks settled here and controlled such a large tract... More

Spotted this whilst driving to another venue, and made a note to call in when we passed it again/ We stopped here for 30 minutes or so, just to look at the Abbey ruins (or so we thought). 90 minutes later and we were ready to leave. Ruins were great, but to walk through them and just spend time looking... More

Contrary to some reviews and its TripAdvisor title this is Talley Abbey, the Abbey in the village of Talley. The parking is limited but would more parking add to the quality of this quiet corner? The new signage is excellent and very informative. The woodland walks have reopened and the views without the doomed larches are now magnificent, towards the... More

Lovely to walk round the Abbey, so peaceful and quiet. Very interesting with a plan showing what it looked like.

Lovely place to take a picnic, admire the views and relax. There is a choice of three forest walks, which to our disappointment were closed off, due to tree cutting!!!! Also there is a Lovely walk around the lake, which we enjoyed instead. I bet the views from the top of the hillside forest walks would have been amazing. Will... More

A wonderful sight, looking through the ruined arch to the view beyond. A quiet and special place that is worth a detour to visit.

Just adore this area. Tally Abbey is both dramatic and forlorn with enough of the ruins surviving to hint at the fantastic construction it once was. Nestled next to the Abbey is Talley Parish Church of St.Michael, a delightful white (limed?) church. A key is available for access inside the church but I have not yet availed myself of this...
