Woodlea Pet-Friendly Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
Set on a hillside with wonderful views across the picturesque Rosedale Valley, this property is a superb stone-built semi detached house within easy walking distance of the pretty village of Rosedale Abbey. The accommodation in the property is set over three floors and the building retains many of its original features such as an arched picture window and an open fire. The property is close to the many amenities of Rosedale Abbey and presents many excellent walking opportunities from the doorstep.

Perfectly positioned for touring both the Moors and the Coast, the picturesque village of Rosedale Abbey is situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. Located in Rosedale, a beautiful valley of sweeping hillsides and breathtaking views, this lovely little settlement is surrounded by wonderful moorland countryside and offers walks in every direction. The village is home to the remains of a 12th Century Cistercian Priory - a stone pillar, staircase and sundial are all that remain – which gave the town its unusual name. The village is now largely made up of stone-built cottages clustered around the village green. Packed with local amenities such as shops, tearooms, an art gallery, a glass studio and three old country pubs, there is plenty to do without venturing to nearby Hutton-le-Hole, Ryedale and Kirkbymoorside.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

Oil central heating with open fire in sitting room. Electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, TV with Satellite, DVD, video, radio, stereo/CD player, WiFi.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Mccann

Woodlea is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday.. Wildlife around Woodlea is exceptional and it’s not too far travelling to different towns and beaches. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Johnson

Couldn't find instructions for heating and tumble dryer.. Dryer didn't seem to dry. Toilet on first loor a bit grubby and didn't use top shower as water kept going hot and cold. Generally comfy house. Clean bedding . Amazing views and a good Base for coast and country. Lots of wildlife. Garden great for the grandchildren.

Absolutely perfect setting - nestled in a dale but with access to the moors and coast.. House was lovely, with cosy sleeping accommodation upstairs which is great for kids.
Mrs Haithwaite

The location is fantastic, and the views are spectacular.. The house is large and easily accommodates 8 adults. The two twin rooms in the attic are a bit small for tall adults. The two bedrooms on the first floor are amazing, with the double bedroom having superb views across the valley.We spent the majority of the time we were in the house in the conservatory as it was large and bright and airy with wonderful views. I had asked about items in the kitchen and was informed there were condiments such as salt and pepper. We found this was not the case and hadn't taken our own. The large knives were not very sharp and cutting food was a bit difficult. The kitchen scissors also did not cut properly. A hand towel would have been very useful in the kitchen, as we had to use tea towels everytime we washed anything in the sink to dry our hands. We ate all meals in the house, so noticed these minor issues in the kitchen. If you eat out you probably wouldn't notice. I would advise anyone else booking here to assume nothing is provided and treat it as fully self catering, then you will have everything you need. The kitchen issues were a minor blip over the weekend and it would definitely not put us off booking this house again. We also had a medical issue and found it impossible to contact the NHS 111 service from the pay phone in the house and we had no mobile signal. Fortunately the neighbours next door were brilliant and helped us out. We did have to use the services of an ambulance and they had to reverse all the way back down the track as they couldn't turn around in the road! The track to the house is bumpy but as long as you go slowly it isn't a problem. Overall would definitely recommend this house for a rental stay.

A clean and comfortable cottage with spectacular views from every window.. The cottage is in a beautiful spot, which feels very private and secluded but is just a short walk to the pub at the end of the track ( which we would highly recommend visiting) and very close to the village of Rosedale Abbey too. The cottage is great for a large group. There was enough seating in the living room and dining room for our group of 7 and enough hot water for everyone in the morning! We would definitely stay again!

The house was spacious, attractive and generally very comfortable and extremely good value.. The view from the house was stunning and the area beautiful and outstandingly attractive. Parking was limited ( we managed 4 vehicles) and turning awkward but not a problem. Some instruction on heating control would have helped but we mastered it in the end. Supply of fuel for an open fire was very generous. WiFi was excellent. We were 6 adults and all were very complimentary about my choice of accommodation for our visit to the area. Two recommended pubs for good food. The Blacksmithe Arms at Lastingham and the Fox and Hounds at Sinnington

Excellent cottage, beautiful views very peaceful.. We booked for a family get together and was very pleased when we arrived at how spacious and inviting the cottage was. Everyone had a great time. Will defiantly book again. Thank you The Walkers

The house was perfect for our group of 7 adults.. The only reason that the facilities did not achieve full marks was that the stoned road was very pot holed. We soon got used to it though!
January 2018
Absolutely loved it, the views are amazing as is the cottage. We had snow which made it great for the children and the Pub at the end of the track was very good
January 2018

Great house in a wonderful location.
September 2015
On an annual basis, a group of old school friends who are certainly old enough to know better get together at various locations across the UK to pretend they can still walk up mountains. Earlier this year we were extremely fortunate to book Woodlea. It proved a fabulous base for our activities. Woodlea was presented to the highest standards. It was extremely clean, bedrooms were immaculate with towels laid out and the kitchen had everything we needed - with a great touch of coffee, tea and milk supplied to refresh the assembled travellers. Bathrooms were modern with copious amounts of hot water for all eight of us. Brilliant views, lovely neighbours and fabulous pub five minutes walk away (book dinner in advance as it is very popular). Heading back in October as it was so good! Fully recommend Woodlea to family parties or group of friends. No real mobile signal, but great BT wifi.
Mrs Harper
June 2015
Just perfect. Dad was born at the farm down the road from the cottage 82 years ago! He has loved his time here and we've all enjoyed listening to all his stories. The cottage is fabulous and we hope to make it back next year. We can't wait.
Mr Morris

A great location for walking and enjoying the area. The house was ideal, with everything meeting or exceeding expectations.
Mrs Foreman

Amazing views, beautiful cottage and a great area to explore. We had a wonderful time, thank you.
Mr Reed

Excellent location and very peaceful. The open fire was just a sheer pleasure.
January 2015
I stayed here with a group of friends at the end of January. The cottage has been recently decorated and refurbished to a very high standard. The location is excellent with fantastic views from the conservatory and living room. The situation may be slightly remote for some people but if you are a keen walker, the surrounding countryside has lots of lovely walks to offer. We enjoyed a delicious meal at the White Horse Farm Inn which is situated approx. 10 minutes walk from the cottage at the end of the road. This is definitely worth a visit and we were made to feel very welcome. Overall a great place to get away from it all.

We had a fantastic weekend break at Woodlea this January (2015). The house has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and was very comfortable with good size rooms and a lovely real fire. The views over Rosedale are spectacular, and the village (shops and cafe etc) are only a short walk from house. Lots of great walking and country pubs/restaurants in area (one at end of drive which had live music night we were there). We had a day a Whitby which is less than an hours drive from cottage. Very relaxing break in a lovely spacious house, we will definatly return.
September 2014
Great, spacious cottage in wonderful location. Amazing views and lovely walks right from the door. Lovely pub/restaurant at end of the track. Photos online don't do it justice. Only one criticism - inadequate outdoor furniture. Apart from that - perfect. No mobile signal (payphone) - which was just great!!
Mr Lane

Peaceful location with spectacular views.

This was a family holiday with 6 adults and 1 baby. The house is very spacious set in very nice and well maintained grounds with wonderful views over the valley and hills. The property has been very well equipped but some of the items are in need of replacement . in particular the washing machine, fridge and tumble dryer. The house is listed as 4 star but imo falls a little short of this, but could quickly be brought back up to grade with some redecoration, upgrade of items listed above and better cleaning. Most of the house was clean upon our arrival but some of the bedroom floors were quite dirty. The house is listed as suitable for 8 adults. This is possible but at a push. The top floor rooms have very shallow ceilings and whilst ideal for children are very tight for adults and there is little in the way of storage there for clothes etc. The house is about 0.7 miles up a dirt/stone track and there is parking for 3 vehicles. This is on road parking whilst it is advertised as off road. We found it difficult to turn our cars around, it needs a 5 point turn with someone watching you, although if you go a further half mile down the track there is a good though rough turning point there is. The pub nearby is excellent and the track in front of the house leads on a nice walk to the nearby village of Lastingham which is a must. In short a very nice House but due a bit of an upgrade
January 2013
Had a wonderful stay at Woodlea one rainy weekend in November. This was a family Christmas get together with 6 adults, two toddlers,a new born baby and family dog. Our host couldn't have been more helpful even leaving a box of Christmas decorations to make our weekend special.Even though it rained constantly the whole time we were there, inside our cottage it was warm and toasty with a great atmosphere. Would love to stay again, but in better weather.
Mrs Crocombe
October 2012
Beautiful location, view over the hills is fantastic. It was lovely to sit and chat with friends in the conservatory. Would like to go back in summer to make use of the garden.
Ms Leblanc
September 2012
The house was unbelievably perfect. We had everything we needed right down to tea and coffee to be made when we arrived. It was comfortable and warm and the view was incredible.I would give anything to be able to go back there again.
Mrs Holle
September 2012
The house perfectly suited to our group. It was very clean and fully kitted out with kitchen equipment. The location is absolutely stunning!
Mrs Savage
July 2012
Peaceful tranquil surroundings, a beautiful unspoilt view of the valley and comfortable warm roomy accommodation. The housekeeper was very friendly and helpful, and there is a good pub at the end of the lane.

We stayed at Woodlea for one week, March 9th - 16th, 2012. The home is well-furnished, the decor is welcoming and tasteful, the appliances are quite nice, and the fireplace was glorious. There was a minor plumbing problem which was taken care of immediately and handled well. The neighborhood cat paid us daily visits--we named her Toffee (no clue what her real name is). We walked the lanes, ate at local inns, drove to local attractions, enjoyed the view, listened to the night birds calling in the moonlight, and recharged our souls. So, yes, it was wonderful and we would love to stay there again. It was hard to leave.
Mr Featherston

The property was a lovely size and very comfortable. Lovely walks around the area meant we didn't always have to drive.
Prof Goodin

Location! Charm of the house. Comfortable place to stay. Had all the amenities we wanted - loved the fireplace. Quiet and peaceful. White Horse Inn was a pleasant walk for a great dinner. Caretaker was very responsive to our needs and very pleasant. The daily visits from the neighbor's kitty was a lovely touch. Beautiful.
March 2012
Really lovely, spacious house over 3 floors. The views were just amazing-so tranquil and peaceful. 4 bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin on the 1st floor and 2 twins on the 2nd floor, with a bathroom on each floor and a downstairs loo. Pros - Very comfortable, clean and well equipped property. The conservatory and the open fire really enhanced our stay. The housekeeper is a wealth of local knowledge and very friendly indeed. Local pub, The White Horse Inn serves very good food - I would advise booking to ensure a table. The Coach House Inn, in the village of Rosedale itself is very friendly too. Good walks round about. Cons - none really, just little niggles - dishwasher didn't work, you can't use both showers at the same time, the access road is very bumpy so you must drive extremely slow - but to be fair the website makes not secret of this. Our party was a group of eight 20 to 40 somethings and we had a fab time, we would definetly consider returning!
Mr Steeley

Great location, lots of space and great views, a cottage that really feels like home especial the garden room.
Mrs Farey
March 2011
Spacious house with wonderful views across the moor. Lovely conservatory and coal fire in the lounge. Plenty of room for three couples.
February 2011
Good situation but you need a car with good clearance for the track. Walk straight from the house so just park the car up. Good pub at end of lane with plenty of good choice within a few miles. Comfortable home, clean and tidy. Heating works well in winter plus a coal fire. The coast is 40 minutes away - best of both worlds.
Mrs Ellingham
October 2010
We loved the location of the property which had magnificent views across the valley. The house was very comfortable, altogether a very relaxing holiday.
Mrs Priest

Mrs Williams
June 2007
We had a wonderful family holiday. Even the weather was good. The property was most enjoyable and felt like home, not a holiday let. The owner gave us a nice welcome. The pub at the end of the road (White Horse) made us proud for a family celebration. Did not want to come home. Really lovely. Hope one day to return.
Mrs Adegoke
April 2007
The standard of the property was very good and the views were fantastic.It was very peaceful and just what we needed to get away from it all. As the weather was really good we mainly used the sunroom to relax in which was lovely.
Mr Onions

Spacious, well maintained accommodation in idyllic rural location at reasonable price. Perfect for large family break. The family consensus was this was the best cottage we've stayed in for quality of accommodation, location and value. We will be booking again.
