Over 250 years old, these delightful cottages are situated within the unspoilt & Picturesque Village of Nunnington at the Rural Heart of North Yorkshire & on the edge of the North York Moors.

Rosedene Cottage, as featured in '25 Beautiful Homes', 'Yorkshire Life' & 'The Journal'  is the original farm cottage 

Strawberry Cottage as featured in 'Your Home Christmas Special' is a converted Stable block.

Both are set within a beautiful large cottage garden, with views across the Vale of Ryedale & the North York Moors, a pond, sitting out areas and a vegetable patch where guests are welcome to pick their own fruit and vegetables in season.

On the occasion that you fancy a meal out, there are several fantastic pubs and restaurants to choose from within a short drive from your cottages serving delicious meals and wonderful beers.  The Impressive National Trusts "Nunnington Hall" on the banks of the River Rye, with its walled garden and eight acres of organically managed grounds to explore is also on your door step. 


Enjoy the abundance of nature right outside your door while you reconnect with family and friends, and take life at a slower pace.

Nunnington Cottages

Ten of the Best Self-Catering Properties in Yorkshire

Voted by Britains Finest 



"Set in the charming little village of Nunnington, there's a touch of the Gingerbread House about these two little fairytale cottages, what with their stone and oak floors; wooden mantles, beams and tresses; brass beds and homely furnishings. Embellished throughout with splashes of red – be that Rosedeen's Aga or the apple-print oilcloth in Strawberry's kitchen - all that's missing is a red, hooded cape. Fortunately, the only surprises here are thoughtful ones, with wine, home-baked goodies and classical music (No, not Prokofief's "Peter and The Wolf".) all part of Nunnington's personal welcome. Outside, the large, shared garden dishes up views across the Vale of Ryedale and the Moors, along with homegrown fruit and vegetables that are yours to pick. The National Trust's Nunnington Hall are on your doorstep, while slightly further afield are the picturesque market towns of Helmsley and Pickering – the latter being the first stop on the wonderful North York Moors (steam) Railway. (Rosedeen sleeps four. Strawberry sleeps two.)"

What our recent Guests have had to say...

June  - Rosedene Cottage

" We ‘d like to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rosedene Cottage.  It’s a lovely, charming and inviting place.  We especially loved the kitchen, where, when we were in, we spent most of the time (i.e. when awake!). Rosedene for us was one of the nicest places we in the UK ever stayed in. It’s very cozy, the bed comfortable and of a good size and, not unimportant, the whole place was clean and well equipped. It’s very tastefully furnished, so we felt at home right away. Definitely a place to come back to. 


June  - Strawberry Cottage

"Just a note to thank you for a lovely stay at Strawberry Cottage. The cottage is just lovely and so tastefully furnished. We loved everything about our stay.The garden is very special, the village so charming and quiet, the village tea room serves super food and the surrounding landscapes are so beautiful with so much to see and experience. We would love to return as judging by the guest book entries do many of your visitors. My wife who is a keen photographer herself particularly enjoyed seeing your photographs. Once again thanks for the lovely stay"
