Dale Head Farm Shepherds Hut: Looking up at the shepherd's hut

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.

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.

    Hospitality of Maggie and Chris was exceptional. They couldn’t do enough for us. On our last night we had a drink with them and we laughed and talked. Sitting out star watching was beautiful with no light pollution. A stay of happy memories with perfect weather. Walks to die for.
    Strongly recommend.

    Fantastic accommodation - lovely and cosy
    Fantastic spot - peaceful and secluded
    Fabulous host - couldn’t be more helpful, lovely lady
    Gorgeous breakfast - nothing was a problem. I am gluten free and there was gluten free bread for me. I could have whatever I wanted to eat, as long as I mentioned it the day before.
    Well worth a visit….lush tea rooms over the lane, which is all part of the farm

    Wonderful stay at the Shepherd's Hut at this friendly family farm. Hosts were very helpful and welcoming. Shower and toilet facilities were for exclusive use for the Shepherd's hut and were close by. Small private garden with BBQ, covered seating and patio set allowed great views of the surrounding countryside. My son aged 9 enjoyed meeting the dogs and sheep at the farm. Lots of birds and nature on the doorstep and location is very peaceful. Easy access to good walks and host was able to recommend local routes. Breakfast was great and served each morning in the tearoom. The Tearoom at the farm also served lovely food during the day. We were able to take our electric car and use our own 3 pin charging cable to charge at the site with host's permission. We had a very relaxing stay with good facilities and would definitely recommend and would love to return.

    We had a fabulous stay at Rosedale Light Shepherds Hut. The hut itself was very well equipped, clean and comfortable with a handy shower/utility room just a few steps away. The views are beautiful and we were lucky to have good weather so we were able to spend the evenings sitting in the arbour enjoying a glass of wine looking out over the fields and valley. There are endless options for walking and cycling in the area. Maggie was a wonderful host. Her cakes and cooked breakfast were delicious and catering for a gluten free diet was not an issue. Although we had not travelled too far from home we felt away from it all and left feeling very relaxed and rejuvenated. We will certainly return.

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.
