    Very comfortable cottage in a peaceful location with breathtaking views. Friendly helpful caretaker. Very friendly area too. Rosedale Abbey is lovely and the food at 'Graze on the Green' is sublime (even for veggies!). Wonderful base for exploring. A couple of minor things: It would be useful to have a lamp in the sitting/tv area as the wall lights are quite dim, although the 'reading corner' in the dining area, with the armchair and floor standing reading lamp was really welcome. Also, as the weather was very changeable (hot for several days then suddenly cool) storage heaters aren't flexible enough as they need to be switched on the day before, so an effective plug-in heater for downstairs would be good for these situations when it doesnt warrant an open fire. In general, loved the house and would definitely book again.

About the location


Kirkbymoorside 8 miles; Pickering 10 miles; Whitby 16 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 footpaths and bridleways radiating out 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, glass studio and three old country pubs/restaurants. For entertainment visit Rosedale Abbey's very own pitch-and-putt golf course and riding stables. Follow this with a visit to Ryedale Folk Museum in the pretty village of Hutton-le-Hole. Alternatively, embrace the outdoors and "Go Ape" in Dalby forest for a truly memorable and adventurous family fun day out. Visit Rievaulx and Byland Abbeys and take a trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway at nearby Pickering. Golfers will enjoy a round on the picturesque course at Kirkbymoorside and anglers can try their luck trout fishing at Pickering. Enjoy a trip to Helmsley Castle and Gardens and take a dip in the open air swimming pool. The coastal towns and fishing villages of the Yorkshire Coast are within easy driving distance. Special events occur annually throughout the year and include Rosedale Annual Show, Pickering War weekend, Whitby Folk and Whitby Goth weekends.
