This delightful cottage is set in a picturesque village near the centre of the North York Moors and makes a romantic bolthole for a couple looking for a peaceful retreat in lovely rural surroundings.


This compact but very sweet one-bedroom holiday cottage is located in the heart of Rosedale Abbey; a handsome little village at the geographical centre of the North York Moors. With its boutique-style bedroom, luxurious en-suite, and small but comfortable lounge this is the perfect romantic escape for active couples looking to get away to the country. And it's all within easy walking distance of three great pubs, two cafes, and a gallery. Not only this, the cottage welcomes two dogs too so you can experience great adventures with your canine companions.


Dating back to 1850, this gorgeous one-bedroom bolthole has a luxury hotel ambience with all of the additional benefits of a small self-catering country cottage. The ground-floor accommodation consists of a charming sitting room showcasing paintings by local artists on the walls and with a feature fireplace. Other contemporary comforts include free Wi-Fi, an iPod docking station and a variety of games, books and toys so there's plenty to keep you occupied. There are also local maps for the walkers among you. This leads through to a compact but charming kitchen with a dishwasher included. Upstairs, the first floor of the cottage is taken up entirely by a beautiful double-height bedroom and spacious en-suite. Please note, the stairs in the cottage are quite steep so please take this into consideration when booking.


It's lovely and light upstairs, with two windows affording views to Hamer Moor across Rosedale Abbey. A king-size bed, TV and hotel-quality bed linen adds a touch of indulgence. The en-suite is stylish with clean lines, a walk-in high-pressure shower and complimentary toiletries completing the luxury cottage feel. There is also a large cupboard with a clothes washer and dryer.


Outside, the cottage has a small southeast-facing unfenced patio accessed via a right-of-way through a neighbour's private garden (not for public use); and facing right onto the lovely medieval churchyard of the old Priory grounds. There are also pretty views across Rosedale Abbey's village green and onto the Moors that surround the little village. From the green, five country lanes head off to all points of the compass, taking you to beautiful locations across the North York Moors and beyond. The cottage also has some off-road parking for added convenience.

The cottage enjoys a great location in Rosedale Abbey, a picturesque North York Moors village. There is a charming village green and several cafes and pubs, all within a few hundred yards of the property. Rosedale Abbey is famously at the centre of five converging lanes taking you off in different directions across the moors. The first takes you towards Blakey Ridge and then onwards to Castleton, Danby Dale and the other scenic villages of the Upper Esk Valley. The view from the top of Blakey Ridge is one of the finest across the whole of the North York Moors.

The second lane takes you out of the village towards the Vale of Pickering and the market towns of Malton (18.5 miles), Pickering (10.5 miles) and Helmsley (13.5 miles); together with trips to Scarborough (28 miles), Castle Howard (19.5 miles) or York (33 miles). The nostalgic North York Moors Railway starts in Pickering where you can catch a steam train to Whitby and back again through some of the most picturesque countryside in Yorkshire. Helmsley features the nationally renowned Verbena Day Spa if you fancy a little pampering during your holiday.

The third takes you out across the moors to Egton Bridge (8.5 miles) and then on to Grosmont (11 miles) continuing onwards to Goathland (13 miles), the location for 'Aidensfield' in the 'Heartbeat' television series. You can also visit the seaside delights of Staithes, Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood's Bay, as well as the famous coastal town of Whitby, all within 21 miles from the cottage.

The fifth choice is to head out of Rosedale Abbey towards Farndale (5.5 miles) and Hutton-le-Hole (4.5 miles), one of the prettiest villages in the North York Moors.

A quaint, very small but perfectly adequate holiday cottage. The welcome pack was lovely as was the coffee machine. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. We were 2 adults and 2 dogs and it was perfect. Ideally situated in a beautiful village, ideal for both walking and visiting the coast.

Cosy and comfortable downstairs, touches of luxury upstairs. Perfect location Hopefully we will return!

Reviewed by James 5th July 2019

This cottage is ideally situated in the centre of Rosedale Abbey which in turn is ideally situated for walking and touring the dales and moors. The bedroom and en suite are modern, spacious and well appointed. Downstairs the living room is comfortable, but the kitchen/diner is cramped and not adequate for preparing and eating meals

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
