“Lovely cottage with fantastic views”
Reviewed January 25, 2015 for a stay in 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.

“Fantastic cottage with great views over Rosedale”

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.

“Many Good points but a few negatives also”

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

“Tranquil, Scenic and not far from the pub!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012 for a stay in 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!
