"Abbey Street Tudor Houses" Cerne Abbas Things to Do Tip by illumina

Cerne Abbas Things to Do: 11 reviews and 20 photos


Walking down Abbey Street away from the Abbey, on your right you will notice some lovely old houses. These houses once continued on both sides along the whole of the street. They were built by the Abbey in the early 16th century as accommodation for the Abbey's senior lay workers. Many have now been converted or demolished, but these few survive as a proud example of the striking Tudor architecture.
