  • I have been here a few times now and it has always been lovely and quiet. Nice place to have a picnic and take in the views. Free parking. If you like ruins and photography then I recommend you visit.  more »

  • Pretty great for a free attraction! Rather pretty in itself too definitely a romantic ruin with a gothic tone even on the sunniest of days. The abbey is also a good vantage point to see the river and the surrounding countryside. There are no visitor structures here yet I feel this adds to the stark nature of the ruin whilst also being maintained well under English Heritage.
  • Lovely afternoon at the Abbey. Always nice and quiet and peaceful when I've been. Good views. There's a staircase you can climb up and the views are beautiful
  • Lovely place for a picnic and dog friendly as well as. Great walks along the river Tees to Barnard castle. Could do with some bins though .
  • English Heritage site. Abbey is a ruin but it is still possible to get a feel for what it was once like. Only a modest amount of information on site but it was an enjoyable destination as part of our walk from Barnard Castle.
  • It's a beautiful place and very well preserved but the parking and road up to it isn't very good and there's not much to do here other than see the abbey. Although it is amazing and a beautiful abbey.
