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.

Situated in a beautiful part of the North York Moors, the pretty village of Rosedale Abbey has a choice of charming pubs and cafes and lies at the centre of five converging lanes, each taking you across the moor. From here you can reach Blakey Ridge (6 miles), Danby Dale (10 miles), the Vale of Pickering (16 miles), Hutton-Le-Hole (4 miles), Egton Bridge (8.5 miles) and Farndale (6 miles). You can also explore vibrant market towns such as Helmsley (13.5 miles) and Pickering (10.5 miles), home to the North York Moors Railway which can take you to Whitby via steam train. Heading south you can visit the famous Castle Howard (19.5 miles).

On entering this pretty cottage, which dates back to 1850, you will find yourself in the cosy and welcoming lounge which is an ideal space to relax in at the end of a great day, with comfortable seating, TV and a selection of games and books. There is a table and chairs here where you can enjoy a homecooked meal. Exploring the ground floor further you will find a stylishly designed kitchen which is fully equipped with an oven, microwave and dishwasher. Going upstairs there's a beautiful double-height bedroom. This lovely, light-filled room enjoys views out over Hamer Moor and features a king-size bed and TV. There's also an en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower. You will find a washer and dryer in a cupboard upstairs. Please note, the cottage-style stairs are steep and unsuitable for guests with reduced mobility.

Moving outside, the cottage has a small southeast-facing unfenced patio which is accessed via a right-of-way through a neighbouring private garden, and which overlooks a medieval churchyard and the old Priory grounds.

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.

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

We enjoyed our stay at Rosella cottage. The welcome pack was very good. However the kitchen is tiny even for two people and the stairs are very steep.

We booked Rosella Cottage for four nights from 1st October. The cottage was cosy and we found it to be warm enough downstairs by using the electric fire in the lounge as the temperature on the storage heaters didn't seem to adjust. The welcome basket was well received and the bedroom very comfortable. We retired earlier than intended each night , oRead morence we had eaten out, in order to watch the tv in the bedroom as the one in the lounge was much too small. The stairs were also very steep which we hadn't realised on booking, probably to be expected in this age of cottage. Not really suitable for anyone with mobility issues or for small children. The village was peaceful , the neighbours very friendly and the Abbey tea rooms well worth visiting. Unfortunately we had to return home a day early as our Yorkshire Terrier was unwell and very unsettled in the cottage. We have put this down to her age, deafness and the unfamiliarity of the surroundings. Overall we had a lovely break and while we would probably not stay in this particular village again that is only because there are lots of other lovely villages to visit. I would certainly make a detour to visit the Abbey Tea Rooms as we were made to feel very welcome and the breakfasts were lovely. We had meals in The White Horse, The Coach House and the Blacksmiths at nearby Hartoft and all were good . Eden camp and the Ryedale Folk Museum were also well worth a visit. Hide

Lovely little cottage in a pretty location. Good pubs and cafes nearby. The only downside would be that the TV in the lounge was a little small.
