Jervaulx is so atmospheric in any season & a peaceful place to wander around or just to sit & contemplate. It oozes history & is set in the most beautiful surroundings.

Excellent small coffee shop, very clean with pleasant staff. The menu choices are limited but the food is very tasty. The rhubarb scones unusual but very tasty.
