We only live around the corner, but having moved back here a year ago, have driven past Jervaulx Abbey and Masham so many times, so glad we popped in today!

With a lovely tea room, a very helpful guide book for £2.50 and at £3 per person to look around the ruins of the Abbey, this is a fantastic venue for the afternoon

Many thanks, I hope you like my snaps, certainly everyone should visit this beautiful Abbey, the wild flowers and gardens are lovely, tranquil and rather more peaceful than other more famous places…..

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. We hope that this website presents a flavour of the Abbey’s special qualities and acts as a source of inspiration for past and future visitors.

Jervaulx Abbey, is open all year round, dawn till dusk and plays host to civil ceremonies, wedding receptions, charity events as well as being used as a film and photo shoot location, and is part of the Turner Trail.
