Appledore Cottage is a lovely end of terrace cottage with a large garden, plenty of parking and glorious views over the surrounding hills. The cottage has a very high four star Quality in Tourism rating and is fully refurbished and well equipped (including free Wi-Fi internet). Appledore is very comfortable and is light and airy by day and cosy in the evenings. There is a large, slate floored, kitchen living room with sofas, free-sat television and a wood burning stove at one end with fitted oak units at the other and a circular dining table, dishwasher, oven, fridge and freezer and washing machine.

Appledore Cottage is set in the small hamlet of Thorgill. It is at the end of a no through road which makes it very peaceful but not isolated. The cottage has lovely views of the surrounding hills and countryside and has a large garden with plenty of space for sitting out or playing. There are wonderful walks from the house of varying distance and challenge and relaxing in the garden on a summer's day is an absolute joy with the babbling stream to be heard over the adjacent field. There are maps in the cottage which you are welcome to use and we provide plenty of local tourist information. Rosedale is a wonderful valley in which to walk and for those who want to walk further Farndale, Hutton le Hole and Lastingham and all within reach on foot.

The nearby village of Rosedale Abbey has two pubs, which both serve meals, and two small shops both with tea rooms. Both shops have basic provisions and one sells newspapers and has internet access. There is a lovely walk from the cottage to the village. There is also a small golf course at the end of the lane and there is horse riding available locally. There is good shopping at the local market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Pickering which both have a weekly market. There is a swimming pool and leisure centres at Pickering. One of the leisure centres has tennis courts. There are plenty of good food serving pubs and restaurants nearby. Whitby, Scarborough and the North Yorkshire coast are within easy reach as are York, Castle Howard, Flamingoland theme park and zoo, the North York Moors Steam Railway, Goathland and Heartbeat country and the Danby Moors Centre. The Yorkshire Moors National Park is full of lovely villages with great pubs, fantastic walks, wonderful streams and a host of idyllic spots to relax and unwind.

About David and Emma Glover

We have lived in the North East of England for the last 23 years. Having lived for many years in Durham we currently live in Washington which is just south of Newcastle. David is the Rector of Holy Trinity Church in Washington and Emma is a partner in a North East firm of Chartered Accountants. We have three children who are all now young adults.

David and Emma Glover purchased this cottage in 1998

Why David and Emma Glover chose North Yorkshire

We fell in love with Rosedale Abbey after having a couple of holidays there when our children were young. We thought then, and still do, that Rosedale has to be one of the most glorious places in the world! We began to look for a property to buy. We wanted somewhere which required renovating so that we could plan what we wanted. When we first saw Appledore is was in a pretty poor state but in a glorious position. It was exactly what we wanted. Having hired an architect and a brilliant local builder we set about completely renovating the cottage and significantly extending it. The work was completed in 2000 and, while retaining its charm, the cottage was completely modernised. If you stay in the cottage do look at the photo album which records the renovation process.

We started to let Appledore as a holiday cottage in 2005 and have enoyed seeing many families holidaying there and enjoying the cottage and the beautiful countryside. We continue to enjoy the cottage still and stay there several times each year.

What makes this cottage unique

It was the glorious location that made us fall in love with Appledore. The garden feels like a continuation of the hillside and we just love it. It feels like our piece of heaven and we so love being there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a delightful week at your lovely cottage. We could not have asked for more and your kindness was very much appreciated.



I will certainly recommend your house to others and I hope to make a return visit next year.



Many, many thanks once again.

Spacious and homely in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Although this is an end of terrace house, it felt very private. Lots of outdoor space, including a lovely flower-filled little courtyard with a big table and plenty of chairs. Inside the cottage was very spacious and comfortable, and very well-equipped. There was lots of info about things to do in the area. The cottage is set in gorgeous countryside, and we saw lots of wildlife (including a hedgehog in the garden!). Kids said it was the best holiday ever!

Spacious property with open fires in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and well organized. There are two open fires that you can use. One is in the kitchen/living room area and the other is in a separate living room. There are two music systems where you can play cds. There is a cable to attach to your smartphone so you can play your mp3s also. The bedrooms were clean and comfy with lovely views. There is a big garden and patio chairs so you can enjoy the garden with friends on a sunny day. There is a large, deep bath that is great to use after a long walk. We loved this house and would definitely stay there again as would my visitors who have pets.

The local area is beautiful, less commercial than say The Lake District but with that comes irregular opening times for shops and pubs in the village. Just try to plan in advance for such trips and don't be upset when places are closed. The nearest place for your big shop is Pickering, so try and stock up before heading out there.

Charming villages such as Hutton Le Hole, Lastingham and Helmsley to visit. Helmsley has a brewery which is fun for ale drinkers. Helmsley has great shops and a castle. Our fave pub was the Blacksmith Arms in Lastingham. Food was excellent except for one dish......my Mushroom risotto. Overall the whole area could improve on its vegetarian dishes but great for fish and meat dishes.

The church in Lastingham dates from the 7th century and has a fascinating crypt. Beautiful architecture and worth a visit.

Overall we loved this stay!

Lovely House in the middle of North York Moors

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in the quiet valley in the North York Moors which we have stayed at twice.

On the way up to the house from the south of England, David (the owner) rang me to tell me there was a phone and internet problem effecting this house and a few others. He went out of his way to help us around this difficulty and was always on hand to assist in any way he could.

We found the house nice and warm and liked the layout of the downstairs dining room and kitchen. A great downstairs shower as well.

Plenty of parking room for 2 cars.

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and tidy upon our arrival, and the box of chocolates and bottle of wine were very welcome after the journey down Rosedale Chimney Bank. The fixtures and fittings are all of a very high standard and it has everything you need, including dishwasher, tumble drier etc., The surroundings are beautiful and we were very lucky with the weather. Our 2 families had a lovely holiday in this cottage, we found it spacious and enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard after a busy day sight seeing. Kids and dogs enjoyed the garden too. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone thinking of staying in the area. We also enjoyed the North Yorkshire Moors Railway trip to Whitby, we had a great day at Scarborough beach and a lovely meal at The Blacksmiths Arms in Lastingham. All in all a fab holiday.

A hgome from home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

A surprisingly large house in a tucked away location. It was perfect for our family gathering and we enjoyed the way we felt at home straight away. The instructions provided were very good. We especially enjoyed having everyone in the living/dining/kitchen room. Good walking from the door or short drive away. Great mountain biking in local forests or on the disused railway track. The pub is 1/2 walk away and had good food and beer. We would love to go back.

Appledore Cottage is set in glorious Rosedale at the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Rosedale has wonderful scenery and there is great walking from the house. The cottage is located in peaceful and delightful countryside and yet Whitby, Scarborough and the North Yorkshire coast, York, Castle Howard, the North York Moors Steam Railway, Goathland, Flamingoland and lots of lovely villages and streams are within easy reach. Rosedale Abbey is within easy walking distance with pubs and tea shops. There is a small golf course just along the lane and plenty of local horse riding. This is a truly wonderful part of the world.
