The county of North Yorkshire is home to some of the most breath-taking natural beauty in England, but its history is equally appealing to many visitors. The largely rural county is specked with gorgeous stately homes, elegant castles and other fascinating historical attractions. Among the most popular sights for history buffs is Easby Abbey, located just north-east of the Yorkshire Dales. Lying in the heart of the county, Easby Abbey is close to some of the nicest hotels in North Yorkshire.
Easby Abbey is a ruined Premonstratensian abbey which sits in an idyllic location on the banks of the River Swale. The abbey was founded back in 1152, only to be dissolved in the late 1530s by Henry VIII. While the building today lies largely ruined, many of its best features have been preserved, such as its exquisite choir stalls, which are housed nearby.
The beautiful surroundings make a visit to Easby Abbey an excellent day trip. The abbey itself can be reached via a gentle and picturesque walk along the riverbank from Richmond Castle, which is a stellar attraction in its own right. The castle features a shop and several picnic areas. There's free parking on the site, and dogs are welcome, if kept on leads.
As the largest county in the UK, and one of the most popular for holidaymakers, there's no shortage of hotels in North Yorkshire. Sandwiched neatly between the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Park, there are plenty within easy reach of Easby Abbey. Whether you're on the lookout for a ritzy spa hotel or a modest and intimate bed and breakfast, you're sure to find something that suits you.
Nearby Richmond features an impressive collection of places to stay, suiting various tastes and budgets. The King's Head Hotel is as fine a place as any, offering close proximity to all the village's attractions, free WiFi and an excellent restaurant.
The Black Horse Inn is an affordable but luxurious 5-star option, located in Kirkby Fleetham, just down the road from the abbey.
