A holiday next door to haunted old ruins? This cottage couldn't be any closer to spooky Rievaulx Abbey
Rievaulx Abbey is said to be haunted. Despite being deserted for centuries, the bells are supposed to ring at night.
We don't notice them during our stay at English Heritage's neighbouring Refectory Cottage, but the view is sensational. It's not often that you have a medieval monastery in the garden.
Built using stone from the abbey, the newly refurbished Refectory Cottage has tasteful interiors, but its setting is the trump card. Go through the back gate and you're met by Rievaulx Abbey's atmospheric ruins.
