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.

Lovely peaceful site

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
Enjoyed our stay at this site. No showers or loos, but that’s why we have on board facilities. Site is immaculate, wardens friendly and helpful. A short stroll to the pretty village. A great kicking off spot to explore the local area. Just a short but spectacular drive over the hill to Hutton-Le-Hole, another pretty village, and only another short drive to Pickering and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Definitely worth a visit to this site.

Lovely stay and really nice wardens.

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
First visit here in late September. Spoilt with warm unseasonal weather. The site is long and only one unit on each side of the road apart from a square area at the entrance and at the very end. There is a enclosure for dogs at the far end. The wardens where brilliant when we wanted to stay an extra night and also when my son decided he wanted to come for a couple of nights last minute due to some personal reasons. They went out of their way to reopen a couple of grass pitches that had dried up with the good weather enough for us to use. Thank you. There are a couple of pubs in the village, one too convenient at lightening my wallet, the other fantastic view but ale a bit pricey. I can recommend chippy at Pickering on Potter Hill. There’s an A board on the A170 before Lidl traffic lights. Really nice. Scenery is stunning around the area but not too much for younger ones in the vicinity without travelling a little. Overall we really enjoyed and talking to other owners on site particularly the ones with the same dog as our border terrier. Didn’t find road noise an issue especially being on that side in September.

Misleading Website Entry/ Only Partial Refund

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site

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.

The Friendliest of Welcomes.

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
Had a stopover here to meet an old friend after leaving Bridlington and the welcome could not have been better. Maybe the Wardens here could take the Brid Wardens under their wing to show them how it's done. Plus points?..no toilet block...tick. No Tv signal to speak of..tick. No phone signal...tick. A big shout out to Graze on the Green for the best flat white ever and superb paninis . Only one negative and was my own fault , followed the sat nav which took us down the Chimney. Made for an exciting finish in a 7.5m motorhome. Hill descent and traction control did just what they should do. Can't wait to spend more quality time here. A gem of a site ran by excellent wardens.

Great site for walkers

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
We stayed for two nights at this lovely site. Clearly, it's not for those that want facilities, wi-fi, TV etc but it's ideal for peace & quiet, superb walks and enjoying the Yorkshire Moors in general. It is a shaded site with pitches attracting either morning or evening sun but not both, and whilst the nearby road creates some noise, we didn't find it at all intrusive. The village is a delight and well served by the Abbey Tearooms and shop (a must for coffee/lunch) and the local pub opposite the site. Wi-fi can be accessed if visiting the pub. Access to the site is via a narrowish country road but we had no difficulty in our medium-sized motorhome. There's an enclosed dog exercise area which, whilst small, is fine for allowing dogs a romp off-lead. We didn't find the design of the site (long and narrow) at all off-putting or people accessing the service point and bins a nuisance. The welcome from the wardens and information available (see the information room especially for local walks) were spot on. We look forward to going back.
