Dating from the 12th century, the Abbey is now little more than a few ruins which house some splendid gothic arches. Some examples of fine stone quoin work remain on the corners of some ruined pillars.
There are two lakes nearby – Upper Talley Lake and Lower Talley Lake which could well have been used to feed the monks who once lived at the Abbey.
The nearest places to grab some food and a drink are at Llansawel (follow the B4302 north and then take the B4337) where you will find the Angel Inn and also the Black Lion.
