Jervaulx Abbey boasts one of North Yorkshire’s most ancient Cistercian ruins. Since the year 1152, when this magnificent Abbey was built, it has become a battered and bruised but beautiful ruin. An aura of tranquillity pervades the entire ruin, the garden and surrounding landscape. Whether you are a day visitor or host your wedding at Jervaulx Abbey, you will experience the warm, ethereal glow of the place. The windows of the tea room overlook a colourful English country garden. Friendly staff are happy to serve tea and a large selection of home-made cakes; the pride of Jervaulx Abbey’s Tea Room. If you miss tea, lunch is a scrumptious affair from the one end of the menu to the other, which includes salmon fish cakes made at Jervaulx and local cheeses in addition to a lively variety of local produce. Support the worthy restoration of Jervaulx Abbey and treat yourself to the fare offered by the Tea Room!
