Applegarth Holiday Cottage ... off the beaten track

Applegarth is a two bedroom holiday cottage that sleeps four people. The cottage was built in 1860s as a home for the head teacher of the then village school which is next door.

The cottage sits in its own, substantial garden behind the old school and next to St Matthew's churchyard and the lovely Old School Coffee Shop. It is a two minute walk from the centre of the village, the station and the Grosmont Co-Op and Post Office (Britain's oldest independent co-op). In the other direction the footpath leads through a tunnel to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway engine sheds.
