The property

Rosedale Abbey 1 mile.

A charming end-terrace traditional cottage, set in an idyllic elevated position in the sleepy hamlet of Thorgill, on the edge of Rosedale Abbey.

With wonderful, panoramic views over spectacular countryside, this Rosedale Abbey cottage provides an ideal holiday home to relax and unwind in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, but be within a few minutes’ drive of nearby pretty market towns.

Homely and characterful, this Rosedale Abbey cottage has a warm and welcoming open plan living area, with beamed ceilings and a cosy open fire; a joy to sit around on cooler evenings.

The spacious country-style kitchen is well equipped, with a dining area and additional comfy seating, whilst upstairs the double bedroom takes in the breathtaking views over the valley.

To the front of this Rosedale Abbey cottage, is a long, lawned sunny garden, perfect for alfresco dining in warmer months.

With an enviable network of public footpaths from the door, this Rosedale Abbey cottage is a walker’s paradise, whilst the bustling market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Pickering and Helmsley offer excellent restaurants, independent shops and quaint tea rooms.

Why not visit the historic abbeys at Riveaulx and Byland, or take a trip back in time on the North York Moors Steam Railway.

For golf enthusiasts, there are two excellent courses at Malton and Kirkbymoorside, whilst an easy drive brings you to the popular seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough.

A lovely Rosedale Abbey cottage for an enjoyable holiday.

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 breath-taking 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 village shops, tearooms, two old coaching inns and a glass studio; which featured recently in an episode of the BBC’s “Countryfile” programme. Rosedale Abbey also has its own 9-hole golf course but for golf enthusiasts, there are a number of excellent courses in the vicinity. The bustling market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Pickering and Helmsley offer a good selection of amenities, including restaurants, independent shops and markets, whilst the abbeys at Rievaulx and Byland are well worth a visit. An easy drive takes you to Castle Howard and the historic city of York whilst the coastal resorts of Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough are all within reach. Guests can take a step back in time by booking a trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway at nearby Pickering, as well as learn of the area’s rich and exciting history at the Ryedale Folk Museum, which holds workshops throughout the year. Embrace the outdoors at Go Ape in Dalby forest for a truly memorable and adventurous family fun day out, or lose yourself in The Great Yorkshire Maze.
