Rievaulx Terrace and Abbey

Places to Visit, Things to Do

With such great weather this Easter Sunday, we made an impromptu visit to the National Trust’s Rievaulx Terrace – a garden with two follys in it. The garden used to be a part of the Duncombe Estate, but was handed over to the National Trust as payment for death duties. From Rievaulx Terrace there are gaps in the trees that provide glimpses of the ruined Rievaulx Abbey below – run by English Heritage.

You can either walk down to the Abbey from the Terrace or its a short drive. At the Abbey there is plenty of interpretation explaining the role of the Abbey and the lives of the monks that lived there. For good measure there is a cafe, a shop and loos.

You can drive to Rievaulx Terrace from Cliff House, and it takes about 35mins. Or you can park up in nearby Helmsley, and after visiting the Castle there, walk the three miles to Rievaulx along well marked trails.

With a range of 5 dog friendly self catering cottages set within 2 acres of grounds and an indoor heated swimming pool.  Cliff House Holiday Cottages makes an excellent base for exploring the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Coast.
