    "The cottage was spacious, well equipped, comfortable, clean and a perfect base for exploring North Yorkshire and the moors. The views from the cottage were stunning. There was no end to the lovely walks across the moors. We would thoroughly recommend the cottage and area for anyone wishing to get away from it all and relax. We have already started planning to return later in the year.

About the location


Kirkbymoorside 7 miles; Pickering 10 miles.

Situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park and handily placed for touring both the Moors and the Coast, the picturesque village of Rosedale Abbey is set within Rosedale, a beautiful valley of sweeping hillsides and breathtaking views. Rosedale is surrounded by wonderful moorland countryside with walks in every direction. Today, a stone pillar, staircase and sundial are all that is left of the 12th century Cistercian Priory that gave the village its unusual name. Charming stone built cottages cluster around the village green alongside the village shops, tea rooms, art gallery, glass studio and two old country pubs/restaurants. The village is home to a pitch-and-putt golf course, as well as horse riding, which are ideal for a fun, family day out. Visit the nearby pretty village of Hutton-le-Hole with its amazing village green and Ryedale Folk Museum, a ‘hands on’ museum of local life and tradition. Kirkbymoorside is just 7 miles away, whilst the coastal towns and fishing villages of the Yorkshire Coast are within easy driving distance.
