A charming river-front cottage which has been tastefully refurbished and decorated, in a picturesque spot in the lovely village of Grosmont. Perfect for two couples or a family, this is a lovely property in a great location, just a two minute stroll to all the village amenities. Overlooking the tree-lined River Esk, simply open the French doors to the Juliet balcony and enjoy meals to its soothing sounds as it cascades along its way - an idyllic spot for a relaxing holiday - and you can even see the famous steam trains as the pass over the bridge!

If the house is ever for sale - let us know

The location was wonderful; walks with the dog in every direction, character village and even pub over the road! Wonderful place to relax and we will re book.




Enter the cottage into the hallway, which leads into the smart, well-equipped kitchen with quality, cream painted Shaker-style units and beech work surfaces; it has an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave.

The sitting room is a good size with an open fire, which is wonderful to cosy up in front of during the cooler months, plus there's comfortable sofas to sink down into after a day's walking across the moors, sightseeing or sunbathing on the beach. A Smart TV enables you to access your NetFlix account so you can catch up on those programmes you've been promising yourself! There's also a small library of books available in the cottage to enjoy during your stay.

The dining area has glorious views, looking out over the lovely River Esk so you can enjoy meals whilst admiring the vista and listening to the water cascading below - so relaxing! There is a Juliet balcony plus a small balconied area outside to sit and sip your morning coffee as the sun comes up or enjoy a glass of chilled fizz before supper.

A corner of the living area has a small mezzanine area that is home to a desk and chair, a lovely spot to sit and read - or maybe write a few postcards to let friends know what a wonderful holiday you are enjoying in this charming village 'twixt the stunning North York Moors and Yorkshire's beautiful coast with its golden sandy beaches.


The cottage has two double bedrooms, one has a double bed in wrought iron and overlooks the river and the second bedroom has an elegant brass bed and overlooks the front of the property. Both bedrooms have a chandelier and built-in wardrobes offering plenty of storage.


The stylish bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath, a shower over, WC and hand wash basin within a vanity unit.


There is private parking for one car to the front. Please note: The cottage is at the end of a short single lane shared private road. You are able to park one car at the front of the house, but please leave access
for the other properties. Please note there is no turning point, so you
will have to reverse back up the private road. There are also a couple of
parking spaces at the start of the private road or you can park at the
station for £5 per day.





The pretty village of Grosmont sits at the junction of the River Esk and Murk Esk in the midst of striking North Yorkshire Moors scenery. The area is characterised by its narrow roads, steep hills and scenic views over valleys of patchwork fields and wide-open expanses of moorland. Grosmont itself lies in the ‘Heartbeat Country’ and is famous for being the home of the North York Moors Steam Railway. The Railway has been preserved and run by enthusiasts since 1973 and today carries upwards of 300,000 passengers a year. The village has a general store, post office, book shop, art gallery, cafes and a pub. It makes a great base for exploring the many pretty farming villages along the Esk Valley and the wider North York Moors National Park, as well as the North Yorkshire Coastline with characterful harbour towns and villages.

Mr Snart
Lovely location in a pleasant village! The glazed dining area with views over the river and steam railway viaduct is really the highlight of this property. We were able to watch kingfishers at breakfast! Kitchen is well appointed, though it would be useful to have a bit more crockery (only 4No of each item provided) and more than one chopping board. Property was generally well cleaned. However there was quite a bit of dog hair on the living room carpet. Also, carpet in bathroom is never a good idea.
Mr Heywood
The situation overlooking the river with its wildlife, plus the steam trains in the quaint village was exceptional. Our only negative comments concerning the cottage were the lack of any drying equipment (hairdryer, fan heater), and lack of any microwave suitable containers. Also, the reversing of our car down the narrow lane was a challenge - hence 'Facilities' rating above. Also ,no mention of bedding or towels in listing - hence 'Accuracy' rating above. The surrounding countryside was fantastic - will definitely come to this area again. All in all, a wonderful getaway from the current difficult world.
Mr Ogilvie
The cottage and everything was lovely exactly what we wanted quiet and relaxing ..only thing was wasnt sure whether we were allowed to park outside the cottage..and I couldnt find any info xx perhaps I missed it but a note on the cottage ?. Sam

Super holiday cottage in a lovely position overlooking the river. Very well equipped and comfortable. Lots of lovely walks and amazing countryside. Quiet village though so if you're after a choice of cafes, restaurants and takeaways you'll need to go further afield.
Mrs Smith
Dont want to nit pick as we had a lovely time and enjoyed staying in the cottage but there was a large noticeable cobweb on the chandelier light fitting. Otherwise lovely. Would have been useful to have some. information on the locality/walks/places of interest
Mrs Stevens
Parking and access is not mentioned but is not easy. Don’t bring a big car or attempt to park close if you are not confident at reversing. There is also a very rude man at no.11 who does not help and seems to dislike visitors. The helpful neighbours next door told us we could use the NYMR car park overnight but strictly speaking we shouldn’t have. Access is not great on foot from the Main Street if you are not steady on your feet and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone who isn’t. The promised welcome pack was not provided. But...the house is very comfortable and the position overlooking the river really good, also excellent for train spotters! Overall would recommend but perhaps a more full description of access would be helpful.
Mr Wells
If the house is ever for sale - let us know. The location was wonderful; walks with the dog in every direction, character village and even pub over the road! Wonderful place to relax and we will re book.
Mrs Jorgensen
This holiday cottage was lovely, and the host even gave us a lovely little welcome pack - which we were not expecting. The place was clean and tidy, beds were comfy and the description was very accurate. The only down side was that we were expecting a fully working jacuzzi bath but this did not work - or we could not work out how to use it. I would recommend this as a place to stay
Mrs Harwood-armitage
Lovely long weekend break. Great view over the river and spent time bird spotting from the window seating. We went to Whitby on the steam train and walked along the 'Rail Trail' from Grosmont to Goathland. As for the cottage, don't change a thing! Everything we would need for a break away in the country. Well done to the owners. Fantastic place to stay and I hope it brings you much joy. Hope to stay again!
Alan Brown
Great cottage in a good location! Lots of trips on the steam trains. Good view of the Tour de Yorkshire in Whitby and Grosmont.
Chris and Sue
Lovely seating area with doors opening to the River Esk. Wonderful trip to Whitby by train. Had wonderful food at Postgate in Egton. A lovely bath too! Thank you to the owners for all their efforts!
Pam and Tony
Lovely week with fantastic weather. Cottage everything we could ask for. Enjoyed watching the steam trains over the bridge. Loved feeding the birds on the bird table, even saw a Kingfisher. Can recommend the Rail trail from Goathland to Grosmont even saw some deer. Loads of lovely places to eat locally in particular 'The Fox and Rabbit' on the Whitby to Pickering Road. Will definitely be back thanks for making our stay comfortable.

Well....we finally found this wonderful diamond - a place to switch off. There is nothing negative for us to say regarding the cottage. What is not to love? It has been a sheer joy waving at the train travellers, walking around the village and catching the steam train to Pickering. We will 100% come back. Thank you.
Tracey and Craig Chaplin
Very relaxing break. Loved Grosmont, felt I was stepping back in time. Visited Sandsend, Staithes and Saltburn. All well worth the trip.
Pamela and Stephen
We have just arrived at the cottage and what can we say...WOW it is beautiful. You have made it so warm and welcoming. ....... We have had such a lovely time, thank you for everything you did to make our weekend very special
Linda, Chris, John and David.
