Dale Head Farm Shepherds Hut: Visitor image of the views on site (photo added by manager on 11/10/2022)

General

  • Shepherds hut with spectacular views over Rosedale valley
  • Lots of walking trails pass the site, including the Rosedale Railway
  • Scenic tearoom garden serving up slices of homemade cake

Dale Head Farm Shepherds Hut is a working hill farm tucked snugly at the head of Rosedale on the edge of the North York Moors. If you’re into tea and cake, then you’ll be well placed for both here, as the farm is famed among walkers for its viewsome tea garden, who go there for views over Rosedale valley and slices of proprietor Maggie’s homemade cake.

The surrounds and skies here are made for gazing – peer across the moorland valley and settle back into your deckchair as the sun sets. Then, as night closes in, pull a blanket over your knees and stay cosily parked, for there are plenty of stars to spy too.

When you’re feeling spritely, long ambles, road or mountain bike rides and horseback hacks are how to explore the land around the farm – if you’re more of a sedentary sort, birdwatching and wildlife spotting are popular alternative activities.

The hut is comfy and warm with a woodburner to keep you toasty – in fact, while the rest of the year the area is popular with mountain bikers, during snowy weather the steep hills around here are spot on for speedy sledge rides. Whatever the weather, the pretty little arbour by the hut is a top spot to hang out in: you'll surely be snug here as you cosy up with a coffee or a glass of vino…

The site has been kitted out thoughtfully with stuff that’s handy for outdoorsy types, like a utility room with washers and dryers, as well as facilities to repair and lock up bikes; and handily for horsey peeps, the hut sits in its own paddock too, providing ample space for horses to stay. Next to the hut is a wetroom with toilet and shower, plus a standard fridge, worktops and a large sink. Breakfast is included in the stay.

    Very nice host with great breakfast.

    Disliked: 

    Shower temperature varied from freezing to steaming hot. Hut was a little small for two people.

From the manager...

Thank you . It’s a shame you didn’t mention the shower while here as I would happily have sorted this for you. Sometimes people alter the settings and it just needs rebooting. The shower is an excellent one . Size of hut is as described but I think you were unsure what a shepherds hut was really. Perhaps you don’t have them in America.

    A beautiful setting with an excellent host. This lovely shepherds hut was set in the north Yorkshire moors with a lovely cooked breakfast in with the price, which we ate in a tearoom .Which is opened later in the morning serving a wonderful selection of home baked treats cooked by the loveliest of hosts called Margaret . She made us feel very welcome and was full of lots of knowledge about the surrounding area and walks . Margaret was happy to speak with us but then also to leave us to enjoy our stay. We were in a lovely clean shepherds hut with everything we needed including a toilet and shower room next to it for our two night stay with local pubs nearby to enjoy a drink and a nice meal. We would highly recommend this place and can’t wait to return.

    The shepherds hut was cute and quirky which is what we were after. The catering facilities were minimal, the bathroom and toilet separate but that was all part of the charm. The scenery was breathtaking and the setting peaceful and relaxing. Maggie was a lovely host- approachable and friendly but also left us alone. The tea shop on the farm was fabulous

    Beautiful peaceful retreat. Maggie was a lovely host who made sure we had what we needed. Tasty breakfast in the morning too.

    Disliked: 

    Not being able to have an outdoor fire. No chiminea as per pics but a minor thing.

From the manager...

Thank you pleasure. Even with the rain there is a red fire warning high alert so open fires are too dangerous. Not sure where the chiminea is in picture wonder if it’s a really old one will have a look for it and remove if applicable. We do state no open fires but bbq is fine !!

    Dale Head farm is set in such a tranquil an idyllic setting but yet such a central location to places of interest. It is a short journey to Whitby, such a lovely scenic route on the way.

    The accommodation was spotless and very private with good amenities and lovely walk. My son was so impressed with the extra touch of home baked cookies , he loved them so much, it was the first thing he told his grandparents when we arrived home, he suggested they were the nicest ones he EVER tasted.

    I would strongly recommend this as great hospitality and Maggie was indeed very knowledgeable, we went to Castle Howard non the journey home, one word "wow", well manicured gardens and great history, my son was impressed one of the statues was a replica of the one in the Vatican city. Fascinating!

    We hope to return to Dale Head Farm, hopefully for longer as you have the best of both worlds, lovely setting but easy accessible to many destinations making this a good choice. We did not manage to explore the walks as there was so much to see and do.

Should your fancy be a day trip to somewhere historic, York and its famed cathedral and Jorvik Viking Centre is just over an hour south of the site.

The coast is close enough for a spin out to too, reachable in around 45 minutes by car: head to Whitby and sample a scoop of its famed blackcurrant and liquorice ice cream.
