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.

Fab location for the North York Moors

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
Perfect location for exploring the moors. Extremely peaceful. There's a great disused railway track to walk/cycle around the whole of the valley (8.5 miles), you just have to get up to it .. a very steep ascent in places, but well worth the views. There's only one pub in the village (The Coach House Inn), directly opposite the site, worth booking gin advance if you want to eat. A small, but friendly village shop. Pickering is 10 miles away for bigger food shops. No facilities on site, but the pitches are beautifully maintained.

Its ideal if you like trees and no TV or phone

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
We stayed here twice now and its very low cost which reflects the lack of facilities. A bit of A Marmite site because you will love it or not like it based on your needs . TV reception is really poor and this site could do with a booster system . Come on Caraven club please invest. Shame only one pub opened now due to covid . Some members are saying peaceful spot . However this is one of five sites we visited in last 7 days and the passing road is very noisy. To make it worse the tree lined narrow site has not many sunny pitches Not much the wardens can do about these issues but the site is well looked after and some would no doubt enjoy The Howard . Not us though.

Perfectly sited for the NY Moors

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
I'd very much recommend this site as a base for the North Yorkshire Moors. There's no toilet or shower block, but that's the only reason it doesn't get 5/5 for facilities. For the same reason it might not be perfect for families but was ideal for us. Everything else is very well kept. The site is great for dogs (I think most of the other caravaners had at least one). We travelled with four dogs and the combined benefits of an enclosed dog area on site and the fabulous countryside around made it ideal for them. The site staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were meeting friends who were staying separately in a motor home and the staff helped us to get two pitches together. They also made a point of letting us know that our pitch wasn't booked on our last day so we could have a more leisurely departure from site. In general the site is very peaceful, although there is a little road noise from time to time from the road into the village which runs alongside the site. We didn't find it intrusive though. We'll definitely be returning.

Peace and tranquility

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
We wanted peace and quiet, and that's what we got for the first 5 days of our stay, the second 2 we were treated to not a bad band but the sound of a very noisy " Birthday Party" from the farm across the road, with screaming on the Saturday night, but hey that was our only complaint, This is a lovely friendly site, it had the basic needs for a site, and was very clean, and the wardens very helpful, We noticed a few of the other visitors not so sensitive to the effort that this team apply, not cleaning up after their dogs, when there is ample space and facilities for dogs, and others not using hand facilities where there is clear notice all around the site. Its a little tight on the road at times to get there, but its in a lovely area there is a lovely square with tea shops just off the site ad a pub which sadly closed whilst we were there so didn't get to go in, and within driving distance to some stunning coast line, national trust and English heritage sites.

Great getaway albeit with minor glitches

The Howard, Rosedale Abbey Caravan Club Site
Lovely site, no phone signal or WiFi (apart from near reception), great walks, and small village. Some reviews say choose site on side of river as side closest to road noisier, but no difference, both just as noisy in early morning with, on three occasions in 6 days, locals blaring car horns and shouting to wake guests... on one morning shouting ‘fire, fire!. Obvious some locals aggrieved at the site, don’t think we’d go back. Note also that on our trip at start of May, more insects from river around vans on river side as opposed to roadside, even saw two guests changing sides. It’s also narrow 10 mile road off main road to site. Apart from this nice quiet and very reasonable site!
