Jervaulx Abbey

A tranquil, historic and beautiful Abbey in North Yorkshire.

About this church

The Burdon family extends warm welcome to Jervaulx Abbey and tearoom in North Yorkshire.

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.
