What Moorsholm, Yorkshire 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 small village of Moorsholm offers a relaxing place to stay with plenty of peace and tranquillity to be found.  If you enjoy evening entertainment though on your cottage holiday there is the local pub where you can enjoy a sociable night out.  There is also an organization called Moorsholm Live which regularly puts on live entertainment in Moorsholm Memorial Hall. The audience is free to bring their own drinks and their own supper if they wish when attending the performances.

A run out to nearby Guisborough during your self-catering holiday provides lots of attractions for the whole family. 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.  

For more information and details of possible things to do on a cottage holiday we recommend that you visit the Tourist Information Centre in Guisborough for free information about a variety of different local attractions.

Families can be active by spending time at the leisure facilities in Guisborough. Guisborough Swimming Pool is a small, family friendly pool and Guisborough Leisure Centre offers lots of sport and activities including a climbing wall, squash courts and tennis courts.

Whilst enjoying a cottage stay near the Moors you may want to enjoy a change of scene and head for the coast.  Moorsholm is five miles from Saltburn-by-the-Sea, a seaside resort that offers some unusual attractions. Transporting yourself between the pier and the town is lots of fun via the oldest water balanced cliff tramway still working in the UK. The pier itself holds the record of being the most northerly surviving of Britain’s piers. For a chance to explore the natural world, Saltburn Valley Gardens and Woodland Centre offers an orienteering course, the Italian Gardens, an old corn mill and a miniature railway. For more of the natural world, a footpath goes through Saltburn Gill, an ancient woodland area with rare wildlife, which has been recognised as a ‘site of special scientific interest’. Surfers often descend on Saltburn-by-the-Sea and it’s also popular for windsurfing and boogie boarding.

Moorsholm is an excellent place to hang your hat, with so much diversity at your doorstep. Countryside pursuits, the beach lifestyle and fun activities for the family are all available nearby, but if it’s peace and quiet you’re after, staying here offers that too.  Whether you plan to stay in a pet-friendly cottage or a romantic hideaway, we hope you find excellent, high quality self-catering accommodation that meets your needs here.

Book a Moorsholm cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Yorkshire on holiday.
