Set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, at the centre of the farming hamlet of Caldbergh, this charming stone cottage with exposed stone walls and wooden beamed ceiling has been tastefully refurbished and modernised to a high standard. Rose Cottage with its 2 separate reception rooms, modern, well-equipped kitchen, utility room, 2 bathrooms, and separate boot room with storage for bicycles, provides spacious, comfortable, and cosy accommodation suitable for couples, families, and small groups.
Coverdale is a well-kept secret, and, with its lush green pastures and dry-stone walls, it is one of the most peaceful and prettiest of the Dales. On discovering Coverdale, James Herriot was prompted to say, ‘I suddenly found myself in wonderland’. Caldbergh in Coverdale, looking across to Pen Hill, and the river Cover flowing in the valley below, is at the end of the tarmacked road: a 5-bar gate opens on to the moors beyond.
A peaceful, rural retreat in a hamlet of fifteen houses, just over 1 mile from the Saddle Room pub and restaurant and the Forbidden Corner. Other attractions nearby are the Wensleydale Railway a heritage railway meandering through some beautiful countryside on its 22 mile route and ends in Northallerton a lovely market town with the famous Bettys cafe to enjoy before your return. Middleham is now famed for its connection with horse racing with several race horse trainers in the town. The castle was the first home of Richard III and although a ruin today it is a great place for everyone to explore and enjoy. Rose Cottage is a perfect location for walking, cycling and touring with the Yorkshire Dales being voted as one of the best cycling destinations in the UK and in 2014 the Tour de France came through Middleham, and in 2018 the Tour de Yorkshire rode the length of Coverdale. Crossing the River Cover via the various foot bridges of St Simons’, Bird Ridding, and Hullo’s, there are many circular walks from the cottage taking in the local hostelries such as, The Saddle Room, The Blue Lion, The Forester’s Arms, and the Wensleydale Heifer to name but a few.

Wonderful peaceful week in an idyllic rural retreat. Rose Cottage is a tastefully modernised property which is equipped to a very high standard and is a real home from home. Large, cozy family lounge, beautiful kitchen with views across the dales and lovely comfortable beds. Caldbergh is a small hamlet which provides a real escape from the Madding Crowd but with shops, pubs and restaurants all within a short drive. There are lovely walks right from the cottage door or it is easy to explore other parts of the National Park from the village by car.
There is plenty to see and do within a short drive of Caldbergh:
Middleham (9 mins), with its magnificent Norman Castle which was once occupied by Richard III. The small town of Middleham is famous for its stables and you can watch the horses go through the town and onto Middleham Moor each morning.
Leyburn (14 mins). This popular market town is the gateway to Wensleydale. It has a bustling square with interesting local shops and cafes, traditional pubs and a weekly market. Why not visit Tenants auction house which is the largest auction house in Europe and has featured on many TV shows.
Jervaulx Abbey (15 mins) – the ruin of a 12th century Cistercian monastery, and its award-winning tea room! (2 minutes further on takes you to the famous Brymor ice-cream parlour.)
Masham (20 mins) – with its lovely square and the Black Sheep and Theakston breweries, both of which have visitor centres.
Bolton Castle (23 mins) – the 14th century castle which was once a prison to Mary Queen of Scots.
Aysgarth Falls (23 mins)– the river Ure hurls itself over three massive rocky steps, the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls.
Ripon (40 mins) – visit its famous cathedral just off the market square, or the ruin at Fountains Abbey and its splendid grounds. Why not go to the horse-racing at Ripon! (there is also racing at Thirsk which is a similar distance)
Northallerton (40 mins) - the lovely market town of Northallerton with its regular street market. Why not have afternoon tea at Betty’s or in Barker’s splendid department store.
