Description

This charming terraced property has been lovingly decorated and styled by the owners, and offers a fantastic base from which to explore the delights of the North York Moors National Park and the stunning North Yorkshire coastline. The kitchen is the hub of the house with a large dining table and a coal-effect fire. The living room is beautifully decorated and is perfect for relaxing in front of the TV after a day of exploration.
The town of Guisborough has many listed and historic buildings including the Gisborough Priory and the Gisborough Hall, where weddings are very popular. There are coffee shops and tea rooms as well as pubs and places to eat on your doorstep, and the Cleveland Hills are set just behind the town. Walkers and cycling enthusiasts will find plenty of tracks and routes from the doorstep and nearby, including a track up to Roseberry Topping which has amazing views out over the countryside. With the coast just a short drive away you have access to the famous Cleveland Way that twists and turns its way along the coast towards both Whitby or Saltburn-by-the-Sea.
Saltburn-by-the-Sea is an up and coming holiday destination, popular with surf enthusiasts and offers an increasing number of bistros and eateries as well as a fantastic beach. Popular seaside villages such as Staithes and Runswick Bay are worth a visit, and magical Whitby is just half an hour’s drive or bus ride away with its historic abbey towering over the town, fantastic selection of traditional pubs with live music, and cobbled shopping streets with plenty of independent traders. Why not take in one of the many festivals and events that take place all year round such as the Goth Weekend, Regatta or the Folk Weekend to name just a few? With the National Park on your doorstep it’s well worth a drive or ride out to The Moors National Park Centre to find out more about this stunning area, or visit Grosmont and jump on board a steam train for a trip back in time. There is so much to see and do that you’ll need more than one visit to North Yorkshire, and Annie’s Cottage is the perfect place to start. Beach 6 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 25 yards.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
