Facts about what Moorsholm offers for Self-Catering Holidays


Moorsholm is a pretty little village and a pleasant place to spend time.  Whilst staying there you may want to visit St. Mary’s Church, built in1892 which has an interesting story behind its churchyard. Villagers who expressed an interest in conservation projects were asked to volunteer to work on conservation areas within the large churchyard. After taking expert advice, the project has been able to preserve wild flowers, such as cowslips and hare bells, and to encourage wildlife. Bird boxes have also been placed in the churchyard. The Church Hall lawn has also seen the benefits of the project. A special sensory garden has been planted here, with the aim of offering a sanctuary of peace and quiet for its visitors.

The audience is free to bring their own drinks and their own supper if they wish when attending the performances.

This pretty market town offers a full day out, starting with a visit to the gothic splendour of the ruins of Guisborough Priory. For walking, cycling and just taking in the magnificent views, Guisborough Forest was established on the site of former mining operations. If you’re very fortunate, you may see some rarely seen animals such as roe deer, badgers or pine martins. The visitor centre for the forest, located at Pinchinthorpe at the outskirts of Guisborough, is the starting point for several designated walks and orienteering trails. Children especially enjoy the play area and pond dipping activities. There is also an easy walk, following the sculpture trail.
