Applegarth Holiday Cottage ... off the beaten track

Welcome to Applegarth

Applegarth is a lovely 150 year old former school teacher's house in a quiet spot in Grosmont village. Ideal for visiting the moors and coast.

We are close to the Yorkshire Moors and Heartbeat Goathland. Whitby is a short drive or train journey away (8 miles). Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes are nearby.

There is a coffee shop, pub and locally-run Co-Op all within 100metres. The North Yorks Moors Railway (steam) runs by to the cottage, the station and the engine sheds are close by.

The newly-renovated cottage sleeps 4 plus two children and sits in its own pretty garden. There are fantastic country walks from the cottage.

2021 Updates

We are David and Julia, we bought Applegarth a couple of years ago. We’d had great holidays in the cottage over the years and have fond memories of our times there. We stay regularly ourselves. Lots of improvements since we were last open in 2019:
  • Indoor cloakroom/toilet - replacing the old outside loo
  • Modern controllable electric heating - no more 'night storage'
  • New carpets, redecoration, new pillows and bedlinen.
  • Work to repair winter storm damage with a new fence along the riverbank.
