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 deck chair as the sun sets during daylight hours, and as night closes in, pull a blanket over your knees and stay cosily parked, for there’s 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 an alternative activity option popular with peeps who visit the farm.

The hut is comfy and warm with a woodburner to keep you toasty in chillier climes – 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.

The site has been kitted out thoughtfully with stuff that’s handy for outdoorsy types, like a utility room with washers and dryers for restoring the order of muddy outdoor gear, 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.

In the mornings, rise to breakfasts comprising locally sourced fodder like Whitby kippers and local eggs and accompanied by the same homemade bread served up at Maggie’s tea garden.

    Cosy and cute shepherds hut in stunning location. Everything needed for a wonderful stay, comfy bed, microwave, fridge, milke provided with tea bags, coffe and sugar, homemade biscuits, just lively.Maggie is so welcoming and breakfast was excellent. Highly recommended to get away from it all..birdsong sheep and soothing sounds of the babbling brook down the hill. Bliss

Idyllic, secluded and comfortable shepherd's hut with splendid view 06/03/2019

  • Liked: 

    Had a fantastic night overlooking the beautiful North York Moors, just what you want from a shepherd's hut. Although on the farm, the hut is surrounded by a hedge and overlooks the beautiful valley below. The hut had all we needed and we enjoyed a barbecue and sitting by the firepit in the evening. Definitely worth heading up the little path behind the hut up onto the old railway - impressive structures built into the hillside speak of a bygone industrial age. Breakfast yummy and Maggie was very helpful - would definitely recommend.

    The views from the hut are spectacular, Maggie could not have been more welcoming. There are great walks all around this area and the nearest pub (2 miles walk) does decent food all day. The shepherds hut was spotlessly clean, cosy and well equipped with log burner and BBQ. Maggies breakfasts are amazing, delicious and huge!

    You can relax from the bottom of your heart.
    This is the second time.Last time I stayed at C2C walking for 1 night.
    I wanted to stay slowly again and I came this time.
    Maggie and everyone else are very kind, and dogs and sheep are also welcome.Now you can hug a sheep baby. It is very cute!
    You can also have delicious cakes and Yorkshire tea.
    It is also fun and warm to turn on the wood stove.
    A great place to refresh slowly. It is recommended.

    The restroom is a little far.

Local attractions

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.
