Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Topping is a distinctively shaped hill on the border between North Yorkshire and Cleveland.

With magnificent 360 degree views from the summit, on a clear day visitors may see as far as Teesside in one direction and the Yorkshire Dales in another.

The area is rich in wildlife, particularly moorland birds so a camera, binoculars and a pocket guide to bird spotting may be useful! Explore the wooded areas, take a walk in this beautiful landscape or climb to the top for wonderful views of the area.

Roseberry Topping is approximately 23 miles from Old Byland by car so why not make Valley View Farm Cottages your base as you explore Roseberry Topping. If you would like to book a short break at one of the Valley View Farm holiday cottages then you can book online by clicking on the link or alternatively book over the telephone on 01439 798221.

Repairing Stone Walls On The Farm

We have been busy repairing some of our old stone walls and building new stone walls.

It's a busy time here on the farm as we have our sheep lambing later, so we are getting ready so we are getting ready for the ewes to lamb and making sure the fields are ready when we need to turn out the ewes and lambs.

We are based in the North York Moors, in a tiny village called Old Byland with stunning scenery, the views are amazing and the countryside is tranquil. You may just hear the sound of bleating lambs, but that just adds to the wonder.

If you fancy a stay on a real working farm then we have 6 holiday cottages that sleep 2, 4 or 6 people.
Take a look at our cottages to check availability.
