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.

Fantastic service!

The wardens are friendly and could not be more helpful. It was a our first trip of the year and typically our caravan developed a heating system problem. We were offered practical advice and a solution that really helped us out. This is a really well-looked after site in a wonderful location and we will definitely be going back!

This site is much more relaxing and much better value than the larger sites.

What a lovely site. Following a really friendly welcome, we were pitched within minutes and ready to start our short break. It felt a bit isolated, but with a couple of pubs and cafes within 100 metres of the site the sense of community was very evident. As you would expect, some fantastic walking especially as the weather was good. We really like these smaller sites with no shower blocks. They are much more relaxing and much better value than the larger sites. Let's hope we get more of these on the network soon. Have a great holiday!

Our first visit to The Howard

Wardens are lovely friendly people and the site is a credit to them. We found the hardstanding pitches lovely and level. We pitched on the left hand side backing onto the road and at first did not see a problem but the traffic is constant with cars and agricultural vehicles. No Wi-Fi or phone signal on site but you can get Wi-Fi at the Coachman Inn opposite the site or at Abbey tea rooms. We had the Sunday lunch at the other pub in the village £10.95 it was ok. The meal at the Coachman Inn was nicer but cost more. You cannot get a mobile phone signal unit you reach the main road to Pickering 7,5 miles or go up onto Danby Moor. The site was suited more to dog owners and walkers. No shower block but shower for the dogs Lol. You can arrive between 10-12 which is unusual and is a big problem as approach roads very narrow and site narrow, as it is built on what was an old railway station.

Dog friendly

This dog friendly site is perfect for your furry friends. The new dog walk is secure so you can let your dogs off lead and there is a dog toy box. The site is well maintained the wardens are friendly and helpful. The location is stunning and peacful. The lack of a toilet block and no mobile signal takes you back to basics and thats no bad thing. The Rosedale show iin mid August is not to be missed. Plenty of walks nearby and plenty to do and see.

Excellent site

Just returned from a 2 night stay and hope to return soon for more! Lovely small site, right by the road so a little traffic noise but not enough to really notice and quiet at night. No toilet/shower block so no endless backwards and forwards journeys! Very clean and tidy, wardens are very friendly and helpful even allowing us to stay a couple of hours later so we could take our dog for one last little walk in the fields. Walking is endless and several maps of varying lengths are available in the information room. Excellent pub at the entrance with lovely real ale and very nice food. Nothing that I can think of that’s negative, not to be missed x
