Access to Ampleforth Abbey
Located in the foothills of the North Yorkshire Moors and covering over 2,000 acres of North Yorkshire valley, farmland and woodland, Ampleforth appears remote and hidden away. However, main road links from Thirsk, Harrogate, York, Pickering and Northallerton make us surprisingly accessible. We are just a 45 minute drive from the centre of York, 50 minutes from Harrogate and 25 minutes from Thirsk by car.
The nearby market town of Helmsley provides services and amenities which are frequented by staff over over lunch times. The village of Ampleforth, just a mile or so down the road, has a local shop, a Post Office and cafes.
