Jervaulx Abbey Tearooms is 25!

We are so proud to have released our very own recipe book ‘in their footsteps’ to celebrate our 25th year of opening the Tearooms.  The Burdon family opened the doors May 9th 1994, home baking at the heart of our business, so we got together some of our favourite recipes.  Available at the Tearooms, a perfect pick up gift or memorabilia from your visit.


Visitors centre and scale model:

Situated in the tearoom and visitor centre is a  incredible scale model of Jervaulx abbey by Derek Shaw who is a retired marine engineer and lives on the outskirts of Darlington. Also, there are information boards designed by Anna Burdon to help our visitor to understand the layout and workings of Jervaulx abbey, along with a guide book will help you to enjoy your visit to this magnificent site.
