Jervaulx Abbey is unique amongst the ancient Cistercian Abbeys in Yorkshire in that it is privately owned. This gives it a special atmosphere as a 'romantic ruin' that the Victorians would have appreciated. Ivy, honeysuckle and wild flowers are allowed to grow over the walls, which also make it especially beautiful in late spring and early summer. Entrance fee is by honesty box, and a lovely tearoom is next to the car park. It is on the main road between Masham and Leyburn.
