  • "The property was lovely and very rural, just what we wanted."

    It offered perfectly adequate facilities that met the description. Unfortunately, we had to return home on the day after our arrival due to a medical emergency, I'm only mentioning this as the property owner who lives on site went that extra mile to help us, both at the time and after.

    Owner of cottage was there to greet us on our arrival. She was a lovely lady very friendly and welcoming. Very enjoyable stay and would thoroughly recommend.

  • "Compact but comfortable cottage with a friendly welcome from not just the owner but from a dog and cats who will wander in if encouraged."

    Peaceful rural location surrounded by sheep fields. Good wood, farm and moorland walks within easy driving distance, and a short stroll to a river from the cottage. Miles of purple moorland heather in August. Spectacular drive over Blakey ridge easy access to a scenic disused railway track walk to its east. Most walking very quiet except for a few hotspots (Levisham moor, Scott's monument, Roseberry hill).

  • "I spent a week at Rose cottage and thoroughly enjoyed my stay."

    Janet was a lovely host. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Near by villages to visit. I would certainly recommend to friends. Because it is winter time, Evenings we’re spent sat by a log fire in tranquility. Surround land is country side with sheep in the fields. A stream near the house.

  • "We stayed last week at Rose Cottage and from start to finish, thoroughly enjoyed it."

    Our arrival was swift when we met Mrs Benton we felt very welcome and nothing changed through till checkout. The Cottage is as you imagine, Old and quirky but that's what we booked so hit the nail on the head. The Cottage was well equipped with everything we needed (a pair of kitchen tongs was the only missing item) It was clean and comfortable. We met Ted, the farm dog, what a beautiful boy - he came to welcome us each morning with a stick, stone or a leaf - fabulous. On check out Mrs Benton took time to show us the rest of the properties to rent which were beautiful. We look to book again and recommend it to anyone.

    Somewhere to work and relax after a busy few weeks packing and moving. Rose cottage was ideal location. Very peaceful and in an idyllic setting. Janet was very welcoming and made me feel very much at home.

  • "Had lovely warm welcome from Janet andTed."

    Cosy little cottage with lovely moors and countryside, although the weather was very mixed it didn't spoil our holiday, had some enjoyable morning walks on the farm withTed. All in all a much welcome break away from all this chaos. Thanks to all at Cowldyke Farm and not forgetting Ted and our morning walks.

  • "The cottage was ok, but does need updating, lots of dust & cobwebs that we cleared, outside was pure mud due to weather which couldn’t be helped, but meant we were trailing it in, the beds were very comfy, and plenty of hot water."

    In the summer and dry weather this would be a great spot for a break. The owner is as lovely lady, who is very helpful if needed.

  • "Very good use of photography made the property look much larger than it actually was."

    Couch seemed to be from a retirement home, you could only sit up straight and had no give - so not comfortable at all. Kettle leaking, Oven door not closing correctly. Property was cold when we arrived, and even after turning the heating up and leaving on all night - the property was still cold in the morning. Even though we booked for 3 nights, we only stayed 1 night as due to it being so cold, we never got any sleep. We made our excuses over the phone to the owner as nobody was at the farmhouse, even after trying twice. Would NOT recommend this cottage to anyone. Very disappointing and will not be returning.

    Many thanks for your valuable feedback, we are very disappointed that one of our properties has let us down and not provided you with the experience that we had hoped for. We have contacted the property owner regarding the points you have raised. I can see you have raised the issues with our Customer Relations Team and we have suggested a resolution but are awaiting further contact. We do apologise once again for any inconvenience on your holiday and hope you continue to book with us in the future. Our lines are open 7 days a week from 9am until 7pm. Property Owner

    If one tries to interpret the instructions, one would probably end up in Kirbymoorside, that is, in the oposite direction to the correct location!

About the location


Pickering 6 miles; Helmsley 5 miles.

The attractive old market town of Kirkbymoorside lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, in between the towns of Helmsley and Pickering. It is a charming place, full of Yorkshire character, and is the centre for the local farms and villages. Visitors will find a variety of shops from tea rooms, pubs and restaurants to antique shops, while there is a market day on Wednesday. The excellent walking and magnificent scenery of the National Park are close by, as are the picturesque villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham. Pickering is the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway - a ‘must do’ day out for all visitors to the area. Castle Howard, York, Whitby and the Yorkshire Coast are within easy driving distance.
