Plundered and pillaged during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th century, the Abbey now stands as an enchanting, charming and atmospheric ruin.

Allowed to flourish with wild flowers, shrubs and Trees freely exploring its many nooks and crannies by its private owners. 

Set in the midst of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Jervaulx Abbey's dramatic, yet tranquil ambience has won the hearts of many of its visitors. Our Tearooms, run by the same family, is full of Local sourced and Homemade Delights. 

Jervaulx Abbey, is open all year round, dawn till dusk.

Playing host to civil ceremonies, wedding receptions, charity events and plays, as well as being used as a film and photo shoot location, it is also part of the Turner Trail.
