The Coach House - Welsh Abbey

    We have plenty of things to see and do here in the beautiful ruins of mediaeval Tironensian (Benedictine) abbey:

    • a museum housing relics from the abbey and telling its story
    • events, craft fairs and mediaeval fun days
    • audio guides to the abbey ruins

    The Tironensian Order was founded by Bernard of Tiron, a Benedictine monk, near Chartres, N. France. This was the first of the new religious orders to spread internationally and the Tironensians established abbeys and priories houses throughout France and the British Isles. The first house of the order in Wales was St Dogmaels, Pembrokeshire, which was founded c. 1113. Soon therafter it established two daughter-houses in Pembrokeshire, namely, Pill and Caldey Island Priory.
