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.

Rosedale is a serene and spectacular spot in the midst of the North York Moors National Park; Dale Head Farm Shepherds Hut lies right at the top of Rosedale valley on the eastern side, and is passed by several walking trails (like along the Rosedale Railway) for easy access to the surrounding countryside.
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.
