The charming ruins of a small monastery of Premonstratensian 'white canons', picturesquely set above a bend in the River Tees near Barnard Castle. Remains include much of the 13thC church and a range of living quarters, with traces of their ingenious toilet drainage system.

Peace and quiet
I love these kind of places. You can see how it was lived in (squatted in?) a couple of hundred years ago. This adds interest to the usual abbey buildings. Read full review
