We visited the abbey with a friend in a wheelchair. There's disabled parking available and fairly good paths around the site, but access into the shop/information area was not accessible. Because of this we were fairly limited in what we did.

An impressive ruin with lots of explanation of the history of the building. Surrounded by lovely gardens. Close to the coast & there are walks from the abbey to extend the visit. Worth popping in to see.
