Rosedale Abbey for a Cottage Holiday in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park

Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Rosedale Abbey


Rosedale Abbey is known for its picturesque setting within the North York Moors National Park. Its location in the centre of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park is perfect for a self-catering walking holiday. The priory, which gave its name to the village, is no longer here but there are a few remains. Golfers are catered for at the Rosedale Abbey Course, a nine-hole course that welcomes golfers of any standard. The original community in the village was full of ironstone miners, but now it’s a tourist attraction with pubs and cafes to welcome its many visitors for cottage holidays all year round.

This is excellent walking country and there are plentiful opportunities to enjoy walking on a country cottage break in or near Rosedale Abbey.  Various walks of different distances and levels of difficulty, taking in different kinds of terrain are accessible for the active family.

Top Tip: For a circular walk of 4 miles, the start and finish is in the car park at the rear of the Milburn Arms Hotel. It should take just over two hours and includes woodland and meadows. Another, more ambitious walk starts in the village along a 7.8-mile route, which would normally take three to four hours. This is a particularly lovely walk and involves walking along the old, disused railway line. Always stay safe, check if a chosen walk is appropriate for everyone in your party, know what the weather forecast is and have suitable clothing and gear.

Whilst enjoying a cottage break in Rosedale Abbey we recommend that you visit the village of Castleton which is just an easy drive away and convenient if you want more amenities. If you time your visit for the second Saturday in September, you’re in for a treat at the Castleton & Danby Floral & Horticultural Society Annual Show. It’s a traditional show with fun for the family, featuring Yorkshire crafts, vintage farm equipment, vintage vehicles, live music and birds of prey demonstrations. There are lots of things to entertain the kids, including face painting, races and pony sports.

The annual Rosedale Show is another good family day out and a fine example of a traditional agricultural show. Livestock is judged in the ring and produce such as fruit, vegetables and flowers are on display. In addition, there are dog shows, a gymkhana, scarecrows and vintage tractors.

The coast is also reasonably accessible for day trips allowing you to combine coast and country on your cottage holiday should you wish to.  The coastal town of Whitby has much to recommend it. Most people head for the rather imposing and impressive ruins of Whitby Abbey. On the West Cliff, the Whalebone Arch is a reminder of the town’s development as a whaling centre. The explorer, James Cook, lived in Whitby for a time and you can find out information about his adventures at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum. For a general history of the town, visit Whitby Museum. Art lovers will appreciate the Pannett Park Art Gallery. Every Dracula fan will know that Bram Stoker set part of his novel in the town. To find out more about the infamous vampire, adults and older children will enjoy The Dracula Experience museum, complete with special effects designed to scare visitors!

As a place to stay, Rosedale Abbey can’t be faulted. It lives up to its reputation as a scenic spot and North Yorkshire is ripe for an active, fun loving family.  Whether you visit this part of Yorkshire for a romantic break or are taking a family break we trust that you will enjoy browsing through the available options and hope that you find good quality self-catering accommodation for your holiday.

Book a Rosedale Abbey cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Yorkshire on holiday.
