  • "Absolutely delightful cosy cottage, beautifully decorated, in a fantastic location - felt like being in the country but five minutes walk into the lovely market town."

    Very dog friendly too, even dog treats in the welcome pack and a great dog walk straight out of the door. Laura the owner was so kind, helpful and friendly and a great communicator. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat.

  • "We had a very comfortable stay at Laurel Cottage our frustrations were missing the tv technology we have in our own homes."

    We enjoyed exploring the North Yorkshire Moors and felt like we drove most of the roads. With us both being disabled ladies of certain age we struggled with the stairs. We were made welcome and just a short walk into town. The parking was an issue but that was with my mobility.

  • "Very enjoyable holiday."

    Quiet location and near shops etc. Very friendly welcome from the owner, giving an explanation of how things worked. Also received a nice welcome pack, including treats for the dog. The property was very comfortable, with all you would need from an holiday home. There were a few minor issues, firstly, the draws in the single bedroom were very dusty. Used the extremely noisy vacuum cleaner to resolve. The string holding the blinds in the conservatory kept disintegrating. The owner did state it was to be fixed. We still enjoyed the holiday, as the location enabled us to visit the places we wanted without having to travel too far. For walkers or cyclists there are plenty of walks cycle routes close by. Also, it was nice to wake up on a morning and watch the wildlife in the garden, while having breakfast.

About the location


Saltburn-by-the-Sea 6 miles; Staithes 13 miles; Whitby 21 miles.

Guisborough is an attractive market town set in rural surroundings on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Steeped in history, Guisborough is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the town's most notable feature is the beautiful ruined abbey, Gisborough Priory; standing in full glory, to its original height of 97 feet, the dramatic gothic east gable towers high over the market town and has become a well-known icon of the town. This bustling small town has twice-weekly market days, a good selection of eateries, excellent pubs and many independent shops. Around Guisborough sits the spectacular woodland of Guisborough Forest. Guisborough Forest & Walkway is situated in Pinchinthorpe on the outskirts of Guisborough at the northern end of the A173. It extends for 2.5 miles along part of the route followed by the old Guisborough Branch Railway line, heading west towards Nunthorpe, and east to Guisborough Forest, which is managed by Forest Enterprise. It is a gateway site to the North York Moors National Park and offers splendid views of Roseberry Topping to the south. Points of local interest include Highcliff Nab and Hanging Stone. Captain Cook 92s Monument is also within walking distance. The Cleveland Way and the Tees Link walks pass through Guisborough Forest, and are just two of the many walking routes easily accessible to visitors. This super country park has cycle trails, walking routes, bridleways, a trim trail and an easier sculpture trail. The park includes the Guisborough Walkway which runs along the former trackbed of the Middlesbrough to Whitby railway line. This includes a wetland area with boardwalks, woodlands and grasslands. You can also climb Highcliff Nab for fabulous views of Teeside and the coast. The park is also very popular with mountain bikers with a number of super trails to explore. There is an excellent visitor centre with full details of all the trails in the park. The long distant trail of the Cleveland Way passes close by, whilst nearby Roseberry Topping is well worth the climb to take in the spectacular views. An easy thirty minute drive brings you to the Heritage Coastline, with historic villages and resorts, including Staithes, Saltburn and Whitby to enjoy.
