Description

Nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales on the banks of the River Wharfe, Bolton Abbey is Yorkshire’s best day out.

Its landscape is the “jewel in the crown” of Yorkshire’s many landscapes.  30,000 acres of beautiful countryside boast over 80 miles of footpaths to walk and explore, providing something for all ages. From our ever changing events programme providing activities for children to fishing on the River Wharfe, you’ll find a host of activity awaiting you.

Explore the ruins of the Priory and discover a landscape full of history and legend. Walk along the riverside, woodland and moorland paths and enjoy local produce in the excellent restaurants, tea rooms and cafes, treat yourself in the quality gift shops or simply relax beside the river with a picnic whilst the children play – Bolton Abbey has it all.

Through the hole in the wall and into the grounds of the Priory ruins, you will soon realise you’re entering a special place. For a longer stay, why not try one of our exquisite hotels or unique holiday cottages.

Bolton Abbey has been carefully managed by the Devonshire family since 1755, and remains the Yorkshire seat of the 12th Duke of Devonshire. The landscape at Bolton Abbey inspires, and has been admired in the past by artists such as Turner, Ruskin and Royle, as well as the poet Wordsworth. We hope you find it as inspiring as they did. Electric wheelchairs are available to borrow between April and October giving access to the Priory Ruins, riverside, Strid Wood and the Strid.
