The food here is consistently good. The menu is varied and interesting and the services is consistent. Have not yet stayed in the rooms but am told they are equally good. The location is querky and atmospheric opposite the ruined abbey

We enjoyed our first visit so much that we returned last weekend for another stay in the Byland Suite at the Tea Rooms. We were welcomed by the lovely staff, nothing is too much trouble for Karen and her team, from booking a table at the local pub, to delivering Afternoon Tea in our room. The breakfast was delicious and... More

We had the place to ourselves throughout our stay, the peace and quiet an added bonus. Despite this the staff could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. Our room lacked a good view of the abbey ruins but that spared us the floodlighting. With a large, airy bathroom and excellent facilities it was all we could desire. Breakfasts... More

We stopped here for refreshment prior to visiting the abbey itself. Coffee was lovely, the size of the cake portion was something to behold, and the fruit scone was out of this world (luckily we had our straight from the oven). Not the cheapest place but worth a visit. Quite fancy giving the b&b a go.

Was originally hoping to stay here but couldn't get a room. Popped in for some lunch after visiting Byland Abbey. I love the view of the Abbey from the windows. Food was very nice! Ideal place for something to eat after visiting the Abbey; I think it is run by English Heritage, which makes sense.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Abbey Inn is steeped in history - from evidence of a medieval hostelry beneath its foundations to the current building made from 'borrowed' stones from the ruins of Byland Abbey. Now imaginatively restored from its origins as an 19th century farmhouse, the Inn has been fully refurbished and furnished to create a wonderfully eclectic mix of old style architecture with modern amenities and facilities. We offer our guests a choice of three individually designed bedrooms - the Byland Suite, the Mouseman bedroom and the Kilburn bedroom. All with spacious en-suite bathrooms and lovely views. Our tearoom is dedicated to providing high quality food using fresh local ingredients. Yorkshire produces some of the finest food and drink in the country and we aim to offer you some of the best. Abbey Inn is nestled quietly at the foot of the Hambleton Hills, surrounded by the ruins of Byland Abbey and beautiful open countryside. ... more   less
