Bell End Farm - Rosedale

North York Moors, England

  • Incredible scenery of the North York Moors National Park and Howardian Hills AONB

The village of Rosedale Abbey is located close to the centre of the North York Moors. The village is the site of a former Cistercian nunnery and has been inhabited since the mid-12th Century. It is also the location of Bell End Farm, a truly delightful holiday retreat.

Bell End Farm was a typical working moorland farm until it fell into disuse in recent years. It was then developed into comfortable, award-winning holiday cottages with stunning views across the moors.

The North York Moors National Park, with its peaceful, rolling, heather-clad moorland and unspoilt valleys, is the perfect place for holidaymakers who want to get away from it all. It covers 553 square miles of the old North Riding, bounded to the west by the Hambleton and Cleveland hills, and to the east by the high cliffs of the rugged North Sea coast. The southern boundary follows the road eastwards from Thirsk, through historic Helmsley and the busy market town of Pickering (with its steam trains and castle ruins), all the way to Scarborough.

Discover incredible stately homes and historic sites

There are some breathtakingly-beautiful historic homes and sites in Yorkshire, England's biggest county. Castle Howard is one of the finest – this 18th Century residence boasts 1,000 acres of land to explore. Kids will love the adventure playground, while the adults will no doubt spend hours admiring the lovely gardens.

Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden is another historic attraction not to be missed. The abbey dates back to the 12th Century and is a stunning sight to behold, despite the fact it now lies in ruins, and the Georgian water garden is a relaxing place to spend a summer's afternoon.

Walk to your heart's content

With more than 1,400 miles of paths and tracks, you’ll find plenty of places to go walking in North Yorkshire. If you fancy a bit of a challenge, the 40-mile Lyke Wake Walk, which extends across the North York Moors National Park, might be ideal. If you want to walk every day, the Cleveland Way is a worthy test of your fitness – the 110-mile hike will take you from the edge of the National Park all the way to Filey on the coast.

If you’d prefer a gentler, shorter walk, there are 20 routes along the coast you can take, collectively known as the North Sea Trails. Whichever route you take, remember that you must keep any dogs on a short lead between March and July, as this is when rare birds tend to nest on the ground and they must not be disturbed.

Go back in time

There are some great museums in Yorkshire, including Eden Camp Museum, which is situated in the ground of an original WWII prisoner of war camp. Take the little ones here to show them what Britain was like during the war, and why it transpired in the first place.

Travel back even further in time at the Jorvik Viking Centre in York allows, where you can explore the remains of Viking workshops, backyards and houses right under your feet!

Ride an authentic steam train

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway gives everyone a chance to fulfil their fantasy of riding a traditional steam train. Both the trains and the rural stations have been lovingly restored – it really does feel like you’re stepping into the past.

Shop until you drop

York has a huge selection of shops to browse, whether you’re after a treat for yourself or a souvenir for someone back home. The York Designer Outlet boasts more than 100 shops alone, all of which are selling designer items at low-cut prices. After an unusual gift? The Ampleforth Abbey Shop sells Benedictine monastic produce, including cider brandy, sloe gin and beer.

Of course, York isn’t the only location boasting a good selection of stores. Yorkshire’s villages and towns all have their own unique shops, which are well-worth checking out.
