Byland Abbey, Byland

This beautiful ruin, set in the shadow of the Hambleton Hills, was once one of the great northern Cistercian monasteries. A truly outstanding example of early Gothic architecture, its splendid tiles are a testament to its earlier magnificence.

Kirkham Priory

These intriguing ruins of an Augustinian priory include an elaborate gatehouse and monk’s ‘washroom’, all set in the peaceful Derwent valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Yorkshire Wolds.

Mount Grace Priory

Set amid woodland below the escarpment of the North York Moors and the Cleveland Way National Trail, the ruins of this 14th-century monastery represent the best preserved ‘charterhouse’ of the 10 Carthusian monasteries in Britain.

Ampleforth Abbey

Founded in 1802, Ampleforth Abbey is home to a community of more than 55 monks who seek God according to the Gospel and the Rule of St Benedict. They welcome all visitors, whether you are simply seeking rest and peace in our Valley, or want to experience something of our life together with us.

5 minutes from town centre in a private quiet courtyard. I have stayed in several of the cottages over the last couple of months. Each cottage is finished to a high standard and very comfortable. Kitchens and bathrooms are modern and have every amenity.I would recommend very highly, and would gladly stay again in the future.Helen and her staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

What Our Guests Say

Another excellent New Year break. We stay with Eastgate Cottages every year and sometimes twice a year. Always of a very high standard, we have never been disappointed, only delighted. We treat this as our home in the country and wouldn’t go anywhere else. It doesn’t get any better, just book, you will love it.

What Our Guests Say

“The cottage was of such a high standard real home from home feel. The cleanliness was spot on. We have visited Eastgate cottages for 16 yrs now and very often see the same people returning. Over that time we have stayed in most of the cottages at Eastgate and never had any cause to complain about anything.”
