"Today the austerity of monastic life has given way to the warmth of modern leisure living.

The Raven Group is dedicated to preserving the special character and many beautiful features of the abbey, its cloisters and the great towers that make it such a landmark. But inside, a programme of total renovation and discreet building is transforming the original spartan accommodation into ninety three distinctive one, two and three bedroom apartments. In addition, there will be twelve charming cottages in the grounds.

Wherever possible period features have been retained. So don't be surprised to find a gargoyle or two gazing down on you. Or a stained-glass window in your living room. "
