Quarr Pigs

Our resident pigs have become synonymous with the Abbey and are a popular hit with visitors young and old. Come visit during spring/early summer to meet our piglets often enjoying a mud bath in the sun!

Located a short-distance from car park, the pigs welcome all who visit Quarr. The pigs are owned and looked after by our tenant farmer, visitors can get close (but not too close) from our pathway that encircles each of the pens, letting you enjoy a full 360-degree view of the family.

Welcome to the Abbey of Our Lady of Quarr, a monastery on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. It is home to a small group of Benedictine monks who strive to dedicate their lives to the glory of God, and whose day is characterised by prayer, work and community life.

Quarr Abbey is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visitors are welcome to attend worship in the Abbey Church. You can visit our gardens, take refreshment in our Tea Shop and find out about the monastery in our Visitor Centre. The Farm Shop offers home grown produce and the Monastery Shop religious articles, books and souvenirs. There is a new exhibition of the work of local artists every week in the gallery.
