Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


An ideal base for exploring the highlights of the North Yorkshire’s moors and heritage coast.

These delightful, terraced barn conversions are situated in one of the most peaceful and beautiful areas of the North York Moors National Park, deep in the valley of Glaisdale Dale. Nab End Farm is home to five converted holiday cottages, Glaisdale (ref W43151), Eskdale (ref W43152), Rosedale (W43153), Silver Birches (ref W43155), Farndale (ref W43154). The friendly owners who live in the farmhouse welcome their guests with the warmth so typical of this lovely part of Yorkshire, and every care has been taken to ensure guests have an enjoyable holiday.
The cottages look out over immaculately maintained and manicured gardens with lawns, shrubs and flower borders, and guests are welcome to enjoy these 5-acre grounds, surrounded by sheep farms, pine woods, waterfalls and streams.
An abundance of walks lead from the doorstep to the dale and moors including both easy walks on footpaths and quiet lanes, and more challenging walks - so there is something suitable for all abilities. The area is rich in wildlife; guests have spotted deer, hares, and an abundance of birdlife including woodpeckers, kestrels and buzzards. Keen fishermen can enjoy good fishing in the River Esk and sea fishing out from Whitby. Cyclists can find challenging routes, as well as the former railway line at Blakey, 11 miles away, which follows a countour, so is suitable for children and the less ambitious cyclist.
The village of Glaisdale, 2½ miles, has a well-regarded butchers shop and a village shop/post office stocking newspapers, fresh bread, eggs, milk, fruit and veg, frozen foods and other items. The village pub, 3 miles, serves food from 12 noon.
Further afield, picturesque Lealholm, 4½ miles, has a pub with restaurant, a very well-stocked village shop, two tea rooms and a bakery. The stepping stones in the shallows of the River Esk and shrub nursery make this village a must for visitors.
Other pubs and eateries can be found at Egton, 5¼ miles, Aislaby, 9 miles, and Danby, 8 miles. The North York Moors National Park Centre, also at Danby, boasts tourist information, exhibitions, a children’s play area, tea rooms, a selection of walks and a programme of activities for adults and children alike. Whitby, 12 miles, is full of interest all year round with many cafes, tea shops and restaurants to suit all appetites and budgets. Known for its connections with Captain James Cook, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the town’s cobbled streets are crammed with tumbling cottages, a busy harbour, an a wealth of gift shops, and a 3-mile stretch of sandy beach, all overlooked by the cliff top abbey ruins. Visitors to Whitby can drive into the town, use the park and ride, or catch the train from Glaisdale railway station.
Nearby Goathland is the centre of Heartbeat country and boasts a pretty village green lined with curio shops, inns and tea rooms. From Grosmont, the North York Moors steam train makes for a memorable journey through the stunning moorland scenery and the glorious Esk Valley into the market town of Pickering. The Heritage coastline of Yorkshire is easily reached with spectacular clifftop walks affording breathtaking views across the coast and many quaint fishing villages awaiting discovery. Visit the smugglers’ coves of Robin Hood’s Bay and Runswick Bay, untouched by the hands of time, where pretty little cottages cling to the cliff edge and the steep cobbled bank leads to a sandy cove perfect for rock pooling and fossil hunting. Shop/PO 2½ miles, pub serving food 3 miles.

    Lovely location, very friendly and approachable owners who didn't mind us roaming around their gardens and land. Very quiet accommodation even though we had neighborous either side. Kitchen very well equipt. Plenty of in house entertainment like board games, jigsaws etc. Very comfy bed, duvet, and cushions - like new! Bathroom small but perfectly adequate. We walked to the pub 2 miles away and it was very easy going - mostly flat. Takes just over an hour to get to. Local amenities have everything you need and the locals are friendly. Lots of nature - barn owl behind the cottage; spotted tawny owl, and slow worm. Lots of scenic walks (we went off the beaten track) Overall - excellent!

    Lovely cottage in a picturesque location. Helpful owner. Comfy beds, have had to buy a new mattress for our own bed after experiencing the beds in Rosedale cottage! A lovely relaxing short break. We're currently working out when we can return, hopefully for longer next time to see more of the area

    We actually stayed in Ferndale as Rosedale was being refurbished. The views from the upstairs bedroom were stunning. The dog loved the garden and I loved the windmill. The owners were very welcoming and was always on hand. We had a wonderful time really relaxing and chilled out break.

    Lovely place, great stay and Mrs Liddle is brilliant. The mark of 4 for local amenities is just because it's quite a trek to a shop. However we were fine with that and the remoteness was actually a plus point, since we're quite capable of going prepared. The amount of furniture in the main room made it tricky sometimes since there were 4 of us and 2 dogs.

    If Faulty Towers did cottages! Now where to start…. Something positive…. I love Yorkshire and the Whitby area. So we let ourselves in to the cottage, which was a struggle in itself. We stayed in the Rosedale cottage, which has an outer door that doesn’t open and close properly. It needed too hands and a right big push with your entire body to move. Very tricky on the way out when it’s a pull and you have a dog in tow. Dog friendly is not the same a dog tolerant! Nothing for a dog, not even a space suitable to put a dog bed, but I’ll get on to that shortly. We arrived bang on time yet there was nobody around to greet us. Our stay was in mid-November and there was beautiful snow on the hills. Didn’t seem to occur to anyone to put the heating on? The cottage was freezing and didn’t really improve until we had been there a few days and had every bit of electrical heater on in the place. After 15 mins or so we had a visitor, a hello from the owner, and in hind sight just seems a pre-emptive excuse for the state of the place. But that’s okay, they have Wi-Fi! I really could write an assay on the faults with this place, but if you want the short version Dirty, unsafe, cold, crowded, uncomfortable, out dated and awkward to get to. The bathroom has no stink! Dirty: The place had thick muck and dust over everything on the walls, and the wall/ceiling upstairs had mould, holes, oh and the cobwebs! Unsafe: Arching heater, kitchen layout horrendous (to make toast we had to balance the toaster on two feet on a cooker ring to reach the power point). The kettle and microwave within inches of the sink and constantly getting wet. Nails sticking out of the wall, at head height and sharp hooks with nothing on them. Crowded & Uncomfortable: Tiny main room with masses of furniture. There were only two of us and a dog and we struggled to sit down and see the TV. Four chairs round the table, but only room for two to sit, and then you can’t get to the kitchen area. We had to step over the dog and his bed to make a cuppa or go to the loo. The bathroom was that tiny! Me at just over 5 foot tall struggled to get in the shower. You can just image how my partner at 6’ 4” coped. And if you missed it…. THERE IS NO SINK! To go from the main bedroom to the bathroom, you had to go down stairs, trip over the furniture (and dog) out into the cold passage way (like going outside), which included putting on full clothing and shoes, then come back an us the sink in the kitchen area. Lovely in the middle of the night. Oh and mind you head on those beams directly over the bed! Outdated: The décor was a right old miss match of styles, colours and eras. Bazaar wall hangs from 80’s fairies in the bedroom to broken dish lids in the main room. The information folder and leaflet box was an archive in itself. Nothing useful in there at all however, rather funny. One of the leaflets was that old, the place had a pre 01 phone number and the activity cost 90p We come from the Lake Distract & Yorkshire and have a Jeep, so please don’t just read this and think townies. This place is awful to get to. The road to the cottage is narrow, steep, windy, muddy and difficult navigate in the dark. We decided not to walk on the road as it was unsafe. 4x4 is a must! I have so many more issues with this place. It needs some serious TLC and ‘we’ve only had the place 6 months, just does not cut it’.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback on your stay in Rosedale Cottage. We really value our customers’ feedback and will use it to help improve our accommodation. So we’re sorry you were disappointed with the cottage - we don’t like our visitors to go home anything less than satisfied, refreshed and revitalised. We bought the business in April 2016, and you’ll be pleased to know that renovation is under way. The changes we have already made include the installation of high-speed broadband, all new single beds, bed linen, towels, brand new matching crockery and glassware. The website photographs show that Rosedale is a compact, beamed cottage but it has requisite seating and is more than adequately equipped for 4 people. Many families and parties with large dogs have happily stayed there before. Before guests arrive, the cottages are cleaned and prepared thoroughly so your comments about cleanliness are more than a little disappointing, but have been noted. As my welcome letter says: “If there is something wrong or missing, please just tell us whilst you are here; we can usually put it right! If you go home dissatisfied and just make comments online, then it’s too late for us to try and improve things for you.” Your stay was during the coldest week this year and we would happily have provided extra heating and removed unwanted chairs had you asked. In November we made a major investment in a new central boiler and thermostats for the cottages to complement the new hot water system installed earlier in the year. Farndale cottage (next to yours) has been the first to receive a super new shower room (including basin!) which you will be able to see once photographs are updated on the website. We consider that our ongoing program of improvement will enhance the stays of future visitors. The location is undeniably beautiful, but with its relative remoteness (2 ½ miles from the nearest village) comes the very quiet, narrow roads and fantastic walking countryside.

    The cottage was freezing when we arrived and felt that nobody had been in it for a while. It must have taken a good 24 hours to warm up and we used electric heaters to try to maintain temperature. We had to sit in virtually our jackets the first night. Apart from this the cottage isn't in a bad location and the cleanliness was ok.

    Excellent cottage on the edge of the North Yourkshire moors. Will be going back as we were made very welcome and there were vast gardens for the dogs and countless walks all over the area. Very good and I have no hesiation in recommending the cottage to others. In fact the owners are going to refurbish most of them this winter and add dish washers to all. Brilliant holiday really enjoyed it and the cottage. I think watching a stote running around and playing just in front of our cottage windows was one of yhe highlights!
