Rose Holiday Cottage is situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, surrounded by the impressive moorland countryside of North Yorkshire. Often referred to as the North Yorkshire Moors, there is over 550 square miles of heather moorland, forests, fields, valleys and a spectacular coastline all within the National Park.

Your stay at Rose Cottage, our '4 star' luxury holiday home in the village of Westerdale will give you a relaxing get away from it all holiday, in one of the most picturesque valleys of the North Yorkshire Moors. It is ideally located for exploring this beautiful moorland and coastal area.

An ideal base to explore part of what is the annual spectacle of the Tour de Yorkshire bike race. York, Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales are all on the doorstep .... bring your bike.

A short drive eastwards through the moors takes you to the wonderful fishing port of Whitby with its attractive harbour, cliffs and cliff-top abbey. Why not take the train and enjoy the beautiful Esk Valley and its traditional villages along the way.

To the South-East, you'll find the market town of Pickering where each Monday there is a traditional street market, a castle and the starting point for the popular North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway.

To the South-West is the ancient market town of Helmsley with its historic castle, quaint town square, narrow streets and the Victorian Helmsley Walled Garden alongside the stately home and estate of Duncombe Park.

To the North-West the rolling moorland leads to the Cleveland Hills where Roseberry Topping towers over the surrounding landscape.

Closer by there is the North York Moors Visitor Centre of Danby en-route to Whitby, or the open air museum of Ryedale Folk Museum in the pretty village of Hutton le Hole - where sheep and lamb still graze within the village.

Those people seeking a little more adventure should look no further than Dalby Forest situated on the Southern slopes of the North York Moors national park. It offers over 80 km of world class trails for bike riders as well as walking suitable for all ages and abilities. Along with the Go Ape forest adventure area, picnic sites and cafes there is more than enough for a day out with the family.

What about surfing at Saltburn with great beach breaks on either side of the old pier, which work best at high tide and are well suited to beginners and intermediates. There are lessons and board hire available at the beach along with ice cream or fish and chips for those wanting a quieter time at this quaint Victorian seaside town.

This is a taste of what this lovely area of Northern England has to offer. There are many ways to enjoy what is on offer and we are always willing to offer suggestions for walking, cycling or driving either in and around Westerdale or further afield as the fancy takes you.
