Not Rosa rubiginosa

This would not have prickles like this and would have acicles. It does not seem to fit anything easily, so is probably a garden species.

Your rose has downy foliage and calyces, and glandular hairs on the calyces, petioles, rachides and leaflet midribs. That would lead me to look at the Rosa tomentosa/sherardii/mollis group.
