Why stay here ...
The Howard Rosedale Abbey Club Site is a most attractive, tranquil riverside location in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, on the edge of Rosedale Abbey and north of Pickering - one of popular North Yorkshire caravan sites. This is very much 'Heartbeat' country and fans of the television show are bound to recognise locations and the atmosphere of the television programme. Farndale Valley is adjacent to the caravan site and here the famous wild daffodils can be enjoyed around Easter time; in mid-August the Rosedale show is another not-to-be-missed event.
You will find the coast is within easy driving distance of the Howard Rosedale Abbey Club Site and all the conveniences you could want are available in nearby Pickering, together with the terminus of North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway. There are also many interesting historic sites to visit in the vicinity, such as the fascinating Jurassic rock formations at National Trust Bridestones, and nearby English Heritage sites, Pickering Castle, Whitby Abbey and Helmsley Castle. For the active, there are extensive opportunities for walking and cycling in the forests close to the caravan park. A short stroll away, the village of Rosedale boasts two lovely pubs and a hotel.
Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

One of my criteria for booking this site was the bullet that stated WiFi is available. In fact this is not true (in any practical sense), and moreover there is no mobile signal either. I only found this out after paying for our stay. As it essential for me to be in touch with my elderly father and his carers this was not a state of affairs I could live with and we had to leave after 15 mins and move to a private site next door (who have taken the trouble to install wifi). I asked for a refund as we had not used the site, and had booked under a false promise, but I was only given a partial refund - one night's fee was kept back. I don't consider this honest or good customer service in any shape or form. The area is lovely and the local pub is good; but this site? Forget it unless you have no relatives or responsibilities.
