Detached Stone House On The Edge Of Grosmont With Superb Views Of The Esk Valley

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House in Grosmont, Nr Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors - Excellent Walking Country With Direct Access To The Moors, The Coast To Coast Walk Passes The House

Our usual changeover day is Friday, especially at peak times. At other times we try to be flexible. The house will be available after 4pm on the day of your arrival and must be vacated by 10am on your day of departure

Hillside enjoys an elevated position overlooking the Esk Valley. There is easy access to the village with its historic steam train station and workshops which are open to visit. A short drive across the beautiful moors leads to the bustling port of Whitby and many other quaint villages await discovery each with their own delightful charms. From the doorstep walks lead in all directions and with a little planning you can even come home by train! The house has a new oil fired central heating system with a cosy woodburner in the lounge. The location is very peaceful only disturbed by the gentle puff of the steam trains down in the valley and the call of the woodpeckers and the pheasants

We do allow well behaved dogs to visit. The house is suitable for two small dogs or one larger breed. It is important to discuss this with us before you book as we do have some simple house rules that we need to make you aware of

Carole and Mike have been renovating properties here and in France for some years now. This house and setting are so lovely that we have decided to keep it and let it out rather than sell the house on.

Carole Bucktrout purchased this house in 2011

Why Carole Bucktrout chose Grosmont

The house accommodates 8 people comfortably. The views are fantastic and the house has a lovely country cottage atmosphere

Xmas at Hillside

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a perfect family Xmas at Hillside. The house was warm & welcoming on arrival with decorations,logs for the fire and a bottle of wine. All rooms were very comfortable with enough room for all of us. We were made very welcome down in the village. We would certainly consider spending another Xmas at Hillside.

Lovely as Usual!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here 5 times in the last year and love it every time we come back. Very scenic views and walks and friendly locals! Owners are very communicative and friendly and keep the house very clean and making sure you have all that you need for a very pleasant stay. Can't wait for our next stay!

Hillside, Grosmont

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful quiet location. Having the steam train so nearby is a great starting point for days out - ride out and walk back. Whitby has plenty of good places to eat and a fun atmosphere.

We had a lovely stay at Hillside. The cottage is spacious and well equipped. It's in a lovely position with a beautiful view. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but enjoyed exploring the local attractions nonetheless. It was fantastic to be so near the North Yorks Moors Railway. Thank you!

Beautiful cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay - the cottage is beautiful - really comfortable and well equipped and the views are amazing. We had a lovely meal at the local pub in Grosmont and took the steam train to Whitby. We couldn't fault the booking process and the communication with the owners was really helpful and informative. We stayed 3 nights and we would all love to return and spend a lot longer there next time. Definitely recommended.

A beautiful, comfortable and spotless home with the best views I have ever seen in Yorkshire.

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed from first entering the cottage. On exploring the cottage the views from all the bedroom, dining room and lounge windows became clear. Stunning. We were a party of eight OAPs with medical conditions/disabilities so cars were essential for us to get out and about because of the hilly terrain but it must be pure heaven for hill walkers. The icing on the cake for our party would have been a small awning above the bench outside the kitchen window so that the smokers in our party could have a cigarette out of the rain - but that in no way detracted from our stay (we had umbrellas!!) We would ABSOLUTELY recommend this cottage.
