About Priory Cottage

Priory Cottage has everything you could wish for in a comfortable Victorian holiday cottage. Beautifully decorated with indulgent colours and decorative period details, the Guisborough holiday home sleeps five guests in two bedrooms and is ideal for families or couples. Although it's conveniently close to the town's excellent amenities, including independent shops and cafes, a market square, and friendly pubs like the stylish The Monk and more traditional Ship Inn, the house still feels quiet and peaceful, with lovely views over mature gardens.

Guisborough is just over the border from the North York Moors National Park and less than half an hour from beaches like Staithes on the North Yorkshire Coast. It's ideal for a holiday in any season. Fill your holiday with walking, mountain biking, historic sites, great food and lots of fun. Being on the edge of the North York Moors gives visitors miles of footpaths. Hike the Cleveland Hills along the long-distance Cleveland Way, climb Roseberry Topping for panoramic views before continuing to Captain Cook's Monument. Baysdale, Hob Hole, and Battersby Moor are other gorgeous alternatives, showcasing the scenery that makes this area so special. Guisborough Forest is a popular spot with mountain bikers for the miles of exhilarating singletrack that are only a short ride from the cottage.

Local attractions include Gisborough Priory, the Guisborough Forest Walkway and Visitor Centre, and Scaling Dam. Staithes is around a 25-minute drive with glorious clifftop walks, a pretty harbour, and fantastic seafood. You can go to Tockett's Mill Country Park, the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum in Great Ayton, and the Cleveland Iron Museum. There are also dozens of picturesque towns and villages to explore, each with a unique charm and character.

You, your family and even your dogs will feel welcome and comfortable at Priory Cottage, enjoying a high standard of accommodation no matter what time of year you visit.

Accommodation Comprises:

Priory Cottage is a period property with accommodation over two levels. It is finished to a high standard throughout, with the decor complementing the age of the cottage while still feeling modern and comfortable for 21st Century visitors.


  • Rich colours and textures are a wonderful feature of the living room, which has leather sofas positioned near the real flame fire. Turn on the Smart TV and enjoy the choice of Sky channels, SkySports Football, Apple TV, or choose a book, board game or jigsaw puzzle instead.
  • Deep green walls, a mahogany table and leather chairs make even the most simple meal eaten in the dining room feel like a special occasion. A big sash window overlooks mature gardens.
  • The kitchen has a chic, modern country style and is fantastically practical for self-catering. It is fully equipped with all of the appliances and utensils you'll need to feed yourself and your family, including a four-slice toaster and a cafetiere for lazy breakfasts.


  • Soft greys and silver accents will soothe you to sleep in the Rabbit Room which has a cosy double bed with a medium to firm mattress and proper storage. The window looks out onto mature landscaped gardens.
  • Second king size bedroom with an antique-style king size bedstead and soft mattress, a Smart TV, a coffee pod machine for a gentle start to the day, and ample storage. It has an adjoining dressing room where a single bed or a travel cot can be set up for a child or baby.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The rear garden has a barbecue area with outdoor seating. There is also secure off-street parking.
