Whatever your needs and budget, we will do our very best to help.
Please don’t take offence parents, but for the experience and tranquility of all our guests and lack of facilities for young children, Abbey of the Roses is not suitable for children under 15 when individual rooms are booked, if you book the whole house children can be accommodated. Give a friend or relative the pleasure of bonding with your young ones for a night or two and take a well deserved break!
