We stopped off here for a look around on our way to the lakes and it’s fairly easy to find with a car park next to the site. Lovely to have a walk around and a bit of information on the site. Not loads to see but on a sunny day you can have a move walk around.

If visiting Barnard Castle then a short drive away is the ruins of the Abbey in a quiet spot by the river. Information boards tell the history of the site well worth a visit.

There’s a nice walk from Barnard castle to here, it is worth seeing as the ruins are safe and you can also see where the rest of the abbey used to exist. It is free to go into the ruins and £2 to park in the car park.

A wealth of history and free to visit. Owned by English Heritage but no admission fee required, you can wander around the site freely discovering the walls and remaining ruins. Set next to a river where we took a picnic, sitting on the pebble beach it is in beautiful country side. Well worth a visit.
