A warm welcome to Jervaulx Abbey
in North Yorkshire

The Burdon family extends warm welcome to Jervaulx Abbey & Tearoom in North Yorkshire.

Scroll to the bottom of the page for current events.

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.  As a family run ancient monument we wanted to stand proud and keep the peace and tranquility that the Abbey would have always stood for.  

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. We opened the Tearooms in 1994, run by the same family, we prided ourselves on Local sourced and Homemade Delights.  Winning a number of different awards for our baking, we started Where the Ribbon Ends, a celebration and wedding cake business in 2015.  Since the closure of hospitality during the Covid 19 outbreak, as a family we made the final decision to close the Tearooms and concentrate on other parts of Jervaulx to secure the Abbeys and families future.

Jervaulx Abbey, is open all year round, dawn till dusk.  Kept open and maintained purely on the entrance contributions of our visitors, we receive zero funding from English heritage or National Trust or any other governing body to keep the abbey open day to day.  We have a restoration page to read about the phases of work completed over the years.

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.
