Mount Grace Priory, House & Gardens

Picturesquely set amid woodland, this is the best preserved Carthusian priory in Britain, with an Arts and Crafts mansion and beautiful gardens too.

The house was adapted by wealthy industrialist, Sir Lowthian Bell, patron of the Arts & Crafts movement. His famous grand-daughter, Gertrude Bell – world-traveller, spy, author and photographer – often visited. Two rooms are refurbished with William Morris wallpaper, and you can explore the attics. Discover how the hermit monks lived 600 years in the reconstructed monk’s cell and garden plot. The extensive gardens have been replanted, following a design by celebrity gardener Chris Beardshaw that responds to the Arts and Crafts history of Mount Grace. The famous priory stoats inhabit the passages under Mount Grace and are possibly the best-known colony of stoats in Yorkshire.
