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.
