About Us

Welcome to Argument Cottage, named after a local family, which is Guisborough’s only self-catering establishment. Argument Cottage has been awarded an excellent 4 star rating by VisitBritain for your stay in the historic capital of ancient Cleveland.

Located on Northgate, two minutes from the town centre and XII Century Priory ruins, the property is a former miner’s cottage, completely refurbished to a superb quality whilst at the same time retaining original features.

We have achieved VisitBritain Cyclists and Walkers Welcome accreditation and are on the regional pilot for the Green Tourism Business Scheme to be assessed in the next 3 months.

We endeavour to provide the highest quality affordable accommodation to meet and, indeed, exceed the demands of the most discerning traveller or tourist to our beautiful part of the country. Wherever possible we use ecologically friendly products, cooperate fully with the local authority recycling scheme and also include within our welcome pack locally produced items.

Sleeping four, Argument Cottage is an ideal base for exploring not only Cleveland’s ancient capital Guisborough but also the surrounding areas, including the North York Moors National Park, Captain Cook Country, Heartbeat Country, the Cleveland Way Walk, Whitby, many other coastal villages such as Robin Hood’s Bay- and much more.

We look forward to meeting and welcoming you to Argument Cottage for your visit to Guisborough. We sincerely hope that your stay in Argument Cottage is a very enjoyable one.

With Best Wishes,

Maria Wilcock and Philip Argument
