Quieter than other more well known Abbeys this is still a treat for photographers and walkers. The church is also well worth a visit for its frescoes and organ.

Although only ruins now,this peaceful place is perfect for some quiet reflection. Alongside is the church with fine examples of medieval painting that has been sympathetically restored.

We visited as part of a circular walk from Richmond and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Abbey ruins and the church next door. It's a beautiful spot.

Interesting stopping off point while doing Drummer Boy circular walk from Richmond. Lovely setting. Free to look round - some information boards but a bit more detail would have been good.

Yes the abbey is just a couple of minutes walk from Howe Villa, which is a very striking building with huge windows as I recall.
