Jervaulx Accommodation

Situated in the breathtaking countryside of the Yorkshire Dales, beside the River Ure and Wensleydale, lies the small village of Jervaulx. A stunning, beautifully tranquil setting for the famous Jervaulx Abbey, which sits majestically in ruins at the heart of the village. The once magnificent Abbey has seen many changes and was formerly inhabited by Cistercian Monks, but was left to ruin after its dissolution and part destruction during the sixteenth century. It now has a private owner and has become one of the most visited sites in the area. Numerous visitors come to experience the atmosphere and beauty of the now overgrown and crumbling walls of the once proud Abbey, and to meander through the delightful parkland which surrounds it on all sides. Strolling by the river, taking in the abundant wildlife and flora, summons images of how a quiet and secluded, yet humble lifestyle was enjoyed by the monks who once lived there. There is a perfect scale model of the Abbey on show at the delightful Jervaulx Tea Rooms, where visitors can sit and take refreshments and enjoy the lovely surroundings. Many of the original Abbey artefacts found at the site have been preserved and can be found at churches in and around the village and in the neighbouring dales. Nearby Aysgath and Bedale have some fascinating places to visit and discover more about the history of Jervaulx. There are many well mapped and signed walks from the village which take in some of the most picturesque parts of the area as they pass through other villages along the way.
