Muchelney is the atmospheric and once-remote ’great island’ hidden amid the Somerset Levels that has many rewards for visitors. Next to the clearly laid out foundations of the wealthy medieval Benedictine abbey stands a complete early Tudor house in miniature. This building was originally the abbots’ lodgings and the building includes a magnificent great chamber with ornate fireplace, carved settle and stained glass, two rooms with time-faded walls that were painted to resemble cloth hangings and a pair of kitchens with timber roofs. Parts of the highly decorated cloister walk and refectory are incorporated nearby is the thatched two-storey monks lavatory that is unique in Britain.

There are plant sales on throughout the season and exhibitions on display illustrate monastic life with a collection of site finds, including decorated tiles and stonework.
