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.

Peace at Last!

First site after becoming members and WOW what a difference compared with independent sites. Site is immaculate in every way possible. Excellent Motor Home Service Area. Wonderful feature where you can pick your own herbs to add to cooking (just love this). Great local pub directly opposite (book a table in advance though), if you want to eat out. Rosedale has one other pub and a couple of cafes, plus a small golf course). Very sleepy village but perfect for observing wildlife, walks and relaxing. Owners are very welcoming and helpful. Site is alongside a river, has a fenced dog area and large spacious pitches (mixed gravel or grass). EHU included in site fee. Definitely recommend and will be back for sure! Not sure if it is an adult only site, thus family rating. It was only adults when we were there.

Just what we like!

A very well kept site exactly where it says it is, by a very pretty little village. We were given a nice friendly welcome from Sally when we arrived, and the general feeling was that of efficiency without the formality of some of the larger sites. There is no toilet block, but that does mean we don't have to pay for something that we don't need. The area is very good for walking, unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough for me to try out the hills on my bike. The only problems with the site are that the trees largely obscure the views and the lack of a phone and internet signal in the valley - you can get free WiFi in the pub across the road and other places in the village. Overall a very enjoyable 3 night stay.

Very Attractive Site

It wasn't busy when we were here for a weekend in the middle of May, but because of the layout, with pitches either side of the access road, even if full I don't think it would seem "busy". The site is beautifully kept and the wardens have created a new enclosed dog walk where you can let the dog off the lead. There's even a box with dog toys!! There's a nice 11 mile circuit round the valley on an old railway line which can be walked or mountain biked. Once up to the railway it's virtually flat all the way round with great views and some interesting industrial heritage. Plenty of road bike routes too, if you can do the hills. Perhaps the Club could enhance the wifi so that it was accessible throughout the site.

Peaceful Weekend

Just come back from this site over Easter weekend, great wardens with exceptionally clean and well tended site. No toilet block and no kids play area on here but the surroundings are beautiful and tranquil. The village of Rosedale has a couple of pubs/restaurants and some tearooms with a small shop. The area is lovely and we will be going back again.Only marked down for families due to lack of facilities but otherwise highly recommended site.
