You could also do the the long distance path known as ‘The Abbey Trail’ which links seven beautiful and historic abbeys including Rosedale plus Whitby, LastingHam, Byland, Kirkstall, Fountains and Rievaulx. Walkers can marvel at the historical and ecclesiastical theme of the abbeys and in-between view the tremendous rolling countryside of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Rosedale is home to Rosedale Abbey, a Cistercian Priory founded in 1158 and now just a staircase, sundial and single stone pillar. The Priory was founded by a small group of nuns who are credited with the first commercial sheep farm in the area. Gillies Glass blowing studio demonstrates the art and its small shop is worth a visit. Enjoy the wonderful views off Rosedale Chimney Bank, a very steep section of road between Rosedale and Hutton le Hole, and visit the Calcinning Kilns.
