Hi, certainly the area around the shop, cafe and small museum is wheelchair accessible, The only slight difficulty is that the car park is gravel, which I know from experience can cause problems with a wheelchair, but once you get from the car park onto the paved area, it is fine.
The route to Lanercoste church and to the priory entrance is all paved and flat, and you would be able to get into the church.
However, I think you would have difficulty getting into the priory itself. The entrance is through the shop, which is quite narrow, and from what I remember, to explore the whole priory site, it is on two or three levels. So, assuming you can get through the shop, you would see the main priory part, but there would be parts - I think where the dining hall/kitchens were - that you would not be able to get to.
I would give English Heritage a quick call just to check exactly what is accessible, but if you do go, I hope you enjoy the visit. It is in a very tranquil location.

Are there guides in a Sunday? Are the tea rooms open in a Sunday.

Yes - both the tea room and the Priory are open on Sundays. The church is still used as the local Parish church with regular services, however visitors are made very welcome if they wish to join in with the service, but obviously you can't sight see during the service in the church, but you can wander round the rest of the Priory whilst services are in progress and then go into the church after the service. Guide books are available and the English Heritage staff will direct you to points of interest but don't give formal tours to individuals, as far as I am aware.

I wonder if you could help me solve a 20 year mystery? Sometime in the 90's on a glorious summer's day we visited the delightful ruins of what I think may have been Lanercost Priory. The memory has always stayed with me but I have never been entirely sure of the exact location of this memory. I associate the memory (maybe incorrectly) with a weekend spent at the Brampton Folk Festival, hence my speculation that it could have been Lanercost. I remember it being very beautiful and incredibly peaceful but the what impressed me most of all was when we peeped into the nearby church, not intending to enter as we were accompanied by our much-loved (and now deceased) cocker spaniels. We were immediately beckoned forward and ushered in, the 'greeter' insisting most warmly that ALL were welcome here even those with 4 legs. I have never forgotten this most special and inclusive church. Please could you tell me if I am correct in thinking that it may have been Lanercost.
Very best regards,

Bernice A further thought is that if you call up Google maps you can link to selection of photos of the Priory which may just confirm your memories, or maybe not! It is worth a try.John C.
