We love Mount Grace Priory! It's perfect for curious kids who want to explore all the nooks and crannies. Lovely gardens, activities for the kids and a good coffee shop.
Even with its proximity to the A19 (which makes for a hairy entrance and exit as it is the only way in) this is a very peaceful place. it has two parts; the ruined Carthusian Abbey and the former Priory guest house which was rebuilt to become a large house. A new cafe is being built which is due the early part of 2018. This will enhance the facilities and experience here. This has now been built
