Quirky, Quaint, Cosy !
Quirky and cosy, well equipped property on four levels. Two good sized fridges in the kitchen, good size freezer and washer/dryer in the boot room. Everon stove (Aga style) was a bit of a challenge but we managed ok. Good size bedrooms with comfy beds (bed linen could do with being upgraded), lovely big kitchen with large farmhouse kitchen table. Beautiful lounge with an open coal fire which was perfect for our Christmas stay? The Christmas decorations and Christmas tree were perfect, even down to putting chocolates on the tree for our small grandchildren. A welcome pack of Champagne and biscuits was much appreciated and we all enjoyed the 'treasure hunt', especially when there was treasure (sweets) at the end of it. The location is stunning and we all had our own version of which window had the best view. The window shapes in the cottage are varied with some being arch, round, stained etc. Our grandchildren loved each morning looking out to see the sheep and horses in the field next to the cottage. We cannot comment on the village facilities as being Christmas most were closed over the time we were there. There is a good size bathroom with a toilet, bath and an electric shower on the 2nd floor, a shower and toilet on the ground floor off the boot room. Attention to detail in regards to cleaning could be improved - big cobwebs, dead flies on window sills. Outside space a little grubby - big cobwebs, dead spiders and flies need sweeping off of the inside of the canopy outside the front door. There are two allocated parking bays outside the cottage. We had a fabulous family Christmas (4 adults, 2 small children) and all loved the quirky style of the cottage, we have some lovely memories which we will treasure forever, in fact our two little grandchildren didn't want to leave. We are listing a few little niggles which could be improved upon but by no means did they impact on our stay: Bedroom on the top floor has a curtain across the door opening (no closing door) Poor water flow re shower on 2nd floor. Boot room shower could do with some heat in it, heated towel rail not working, bit of an upgrade would improve this area as it could be a bit smarter and cleaner. Front door curtain needs replacing, existing one very shabby.

fantastic unique cottage
What a beautiful characterful accommodation,everything we needed and more for 6 females on a hen weekend.so warm and cosy with the cooker always on and the storage heaters.we couldn't resist having a real log fire the first night but we were so lucky with the weather that we didn't light it again.lovely comfy beds,spotlessly clean,welcome pack and treasure hunt a nice touch.food in graze on the green so good and our meal in the coach inn,highly recommended.Sunday late afternoon we drove to the lion inn at blakey ridge and that was also brilliant.did some great walks from cottage.great weekend had by all!

The perfect place for a large family to stay.
We stayed here for one week from 25th August 2017 with our three boys and their partners. The Chaple has everything you need and is situated just inside the beautiful village of Rosedale Abbey. It is clean and decorated in a traditional country style to a very high standard. There is a satalite tv, dvds to watch maps and information on local beautiful walks, along with a real log fire. All rooms have great views over the surrounding area. Although the hotel in the village has closed there are two local pubs that serve fantastic food to takeaway or eat in at realistic prices. This holiday let is a credit to its owners.

A lovely base to come home to after a day of exploring Rosedale Abbey.

A well resourced cottage in a beautiful setting. Rosedale Abbey is well served by pubs and cafe's with the village green being an attractive centre for the village. It is excellent walking country.
