Boasting a modern kitchen, a fantastic wood burner and wood-effect floor in the living room, and a split level bedroom, this property definitely has the ’wow’ factor. The lower level has a fabulous roll-top bath, and the mezzanine area above has the kingsize bed and fantastic views of the Cleveland Hills. A lovely rose garden with garden furniture completes the picture.

The historic market town of Guisborough is just 5 minutes’ walk away, with an abundance of traditional pubs offering a warm welcome and home-cooked food, as well as a number of coffee shops, tea rooms and great restaurants. Guisborough, once under Roman occupation, is steeped in history, with many old buildings and places of interest within walking distance, such as Guisborough Hall and the Guisborough Priory. Natural beauty surrounds the town in most directions. The Cleveland Hills offer some fantastic walking and cycling routes, including a trip up to the peak of Roseberry Topping with stunning views across North Yorkshire. The Moors National Park Centre at Danby is worth a visit early in your stay as it highlights just what there is to see and do in North Yorkshire. It also offers plenty of informative fun for all the family. Known as Britain’s ’Capital of Cake’, the Moors National Park is home to numerous tea shops in tranquil villages, working farms and walled gardens, as well as delicatessens, cafés and bakeries, which all add to the title. The Yorkshire Cycle Hub at Fryup is one particular cake hot spot where you can hire bikes and head out to explore the local beauty.

Travel east towards the coast and you can join up with the Cleveland Way in nearby Marske-by-the-Sea and Saltburn-by-the-Sea, and enjoy a walk across cliff tops and down into some of the pretty coastal towns and villages. Saltburn in particular is popular amongst surfers and ice cream lovers, and has many pubs and restaurants to enjoy. Head further south to the magical town of Whitby with its ancient abbey and links to Dracula, Captain Cook and the 199 steps to the top of East Cliff with unbelievable views down onto the town and out to sea. Why not take a tourist boat out in search of minke whales and dolphins, or just enjoy a stroll along miles of golden sands. York and Durham are both worth a visit as is Scarborough further along the coast. There is so much to see and do in the area and Rose Garden Cottage is the ideal base to relax and unwind. Beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

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.

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.
