This was a lovely place to walk around - truly beautiful scenery and ruins. We had been left underwhelmed by Skipton Castle previously, which cost over £16 for us both to walk around and this was so much better. You just leave a suggested donation....More

What a lovely place to walk we visited in the snow and it was stunning. Plenty of parking and entrance via a honesty box will definitely visit again and hopefully the weather will be better although didn't spoil the visit

What a beautiful place to visit, nature and history at its best. 😀😀 The grounds are very well looked after and the abbey is a he perfect place to go for a walk after enjoying afternoon tea in the Tearooms.

Love visiting the Abbey and walking around the ruins, also taking the path up to the fishing lodge .. perfect for dogs on leads. Walked in all weathers and the Abbey looks fantastic in all..

Parked up at the tea room car park (free for users of the tearoom and abbey). Short walk across to the abbey. We weren't very impressed, maybe it was the mud and the cold, but we found there wasn't a whole lot to see.

We spent hours walking round this wonderful abbey ruin. The air of peace and tranquility was beyond our expectation. The abbey is privately owned but the public can go in for a payment of only £3 in an honesty box, which means that people of...More

The abbey is a peaceful and contemplative place to visit at any time of the year, but especially so if you go out of high season. We came here with a group of friends on a college reunion and all of us appreciated the grounds...More

I stopped off here as I was early for an appointment, and despite the rain it has a romantic appeal. There's enough of the buildings left to pick what was what, and although there's a lack of information board I still enjoyed my visit. One...More
