  • A very well managed site with friendly staff. This is a former Priory and the Abbey Ruins are quote intact in places. The priory is in the valley formed by the River Derwent and is a very peaceful spot with many walks starting from there. The car park also can form the base for short and long circular walks
  • I have had a great day today and I am very interested in this.
  • Lovely place. Very clean. The staff were lovely and helpful. It's lovely for walking the dog around as well. It tells you about the history of the place on notice boards. It's lovely for a little picnic. Nice for couples.
  • Nice day out, not too far from york
