Staff very friendly and helpful, quiet little Priory with plenty of history, popped into the church attached and the cafe and shop next door. Good stop off trip on our way home. Near Hadrian wall to make a day of it!

Like tranquil English countryside? Like medieval architecture? Like exploring an old ruin, having tea/coffee and then exploring a nice gift shop? Then visit Lanercost Priory. It's a very nice spot, and nearby are various spots to explore Hadrian's Wall.

Visited Lanercost Priory as part of a group tour. Interesting to learn the Priory and Church were built from stones from Hadrian's wall. Nice to walk around and get a sense of the history of the site.

The tearoom has a special area dedicated to dogs! Owners eat at tables and the dogs are supplied with water and bowls for food. I do not own a dog but it was well publicised and seemed very practical for dog owners.
