Rosedale House is a beautiful detached house standing proud above the pretty village of Welburn amidst the Howardian Hills.
Originally built in the 18th century, local tradition suggests that the carved heads on the front of the house are those of King Neptune and the Earl of Carlisle.
Set back from the village with a small walled courtyard, Rosedale House offers a perfect choice for exploring this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The cosy sitting room provides a perfect retreat after indulging in a sumptuous dinner in the local inn or after serving local produce in the dining room, produced in the well-equipped kitchen.
The bedrooms offer a perfect night's rest with a choice of a sumptuous super king-size bed or twin beds, a romantic king-size double bedroom and a small single bedroom.
