Walks at Jervaulx Abbey

Groups visits

We are a perfect spot for a pick me up after one of the many beautiful walks around Jervaulx, with amble parking its a great place to meet up with friends and groups.  If you are planning a organised walking group, we really appreciate a heads up on these visits.  It’s really helpful to have a contact name and number, with a rough guide to time and amount of people.  We understand that the weather may change these numbers, but it helps us make sure we have enough staff and stock out to cater for parties.  Groups of 8 or more.



We have amble parking at the Tearooms, please search Jervaulx Abbey Tearooms in Sat Nav.  We do ask to park down the bottom and in the extended car park, to allow closer parking to visitors for the Tearooms.  We have a honesty box at the enterance of the car park. 

Parkland walk

The Abbey is set with a stunning parkland which has a bridle way footpath, this is hard standing but not totally smooth.  Pushchairs would make for a bumping but achievable walk.  It is a mile to the other side of the parkland, passing a lovely pond.


We do ask that dogs are always kept on leads, the land is used for farming and there will be livestock with the parkland.  Please know that farmers are within their rights to shoot any dog off its lead, if they believe the dog is worrying their livestock.  

Popular 6 1/2 mile circular walk

A beautiful scenic circular walk, we do have a map available to purchase within the Tearooms.  Heading through the bridleway past the abbey and up to Thornton Stewart, enjoy a beautiful view up the dale.  Following the path way to the danby estate and down to cover bridge pub, enjoy a delicious pint of something special in this country riverside pub.  Follow the river back downstream and end up back at the Tearooms, just ready for a homemade cake or cream tea.  A lovely easy walk, beautiful in all weathers.
