Jervaulx Abbey

Founded in 1156, Jervaulx Abbey was once a great Cistercian monastery.
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 by its private owners with wild flowers and plants freely exploring its many nooks and crannies. Set in the midst of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Jervaulx Abbey’s dramatic and yet tranquil ambience has won the hearts of many of its visitors.
