Egglestone Abbey is the ruins of a small monastery, picturesquely set above a bend in the River Tees. Remains include much of the 13th century church and a range of living quarters, with traces of their ingenious toilet drainage system.

There is a small free car park on site; snacks and toilets are available at nearby Barnard Castle; dogs on leads are welcome.
