Cerne Abbey Guesthouse

Cerne Abbey Guesthouse
The guesthouse was originally part of a large monastery complex and was built in the 15th century to house travelling pilgrims by order of the then Abbot, Vanne. It is the largest surviving building of the Dissolution of the Monasteries with the only other part being the Abbot's Porch. There had been an abbey in Cerne Abbas from 870 when it was founded by St. Edwold.
