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. 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.

We had a great week on the site - peaceful, very helpful wardens, immaculate pitches, great walks with pubs and tea-rooms in the village. And then came the weekend. I've never seen so many dogs on a site - owners with 3, 4 and even 5 dogs on a pitch! If they were seen but not heard we wouldn't have minded so much, but there were dogs barking, and some aggressive animals that loudly objected when people walked past their pitches. The Club needs to tighten up its liberal approach to dog owners. Why is it okay to charge for children, but not for dogs? And they should be limited in number as they are on many affiliated sites. I would recommend The Howard - but not on a weekend...
