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.
