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.

Beautiful cottage, lovely view over the river watching the cormorant swimming for breakfast and the flash of a kingfisher fly by also very close to the railway kids loved watching the steamers from the windows if not from the station! Had a very minor problem with the shower which was reported and fixed within about 6 hours with no inteferance to our stay. Shop and pub nearby. Would definately consider returning probably for a little longer next time so could explore more (only had 3 night stay this time) Many thanks
Mrs Roberts
Beautiful cottage looking over the river. Peaceful setting in an interesting village. Enjoyed exploring different walks from the cottage with the dog. Ideally situated for Whitby, coastal villages and the moors. Thank you
Mrs Pearman
Great discount, more affordable and the right price for the property. Love the hamper welcome pack.
Mr Howlett
A little gem of a cottage.
Mr Wright
This cottage was in a perfect location and clean to a high standard and with all the facilities you could need. A home from home with a balcony view that was perfect for relaxing and watching the steam trains that go over the bridge. Fantastic walks minutes from your doorstep. We also received a welcome pack which was a lovely gesture. We cannot rate this cottage highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend.
Mrs Mccann
Lovely cottage, great holiday… be nice to have a TV in the main bedroom. We would defiantly recommend to our family and friends.
Mr Templeton
Lovely cottage, could see steam trains from the patio, sound of water running in the stream very peaceful. Reported that fire detector was bleeping and battery was replaced same day. Cottage, bedding and towels lovely and clean. Very enjoyable stay. Thank you
Mrs Hodgson
only problem with holiday was parking,absolute nightmare,not helped by bolshy residents
Mr Purdon
This was an amazing place to stay. I stayed with my four year old grandson and my husky. Gorgeous and had everything we could possibly need inside the cottage. The only thing we could’ve had that would’ve made our stay 100% was a hose outside at the tap. As the walk from grosmont to goathland has horrid black shale and due to rain and sleet my once white and grey husky was black and filthy. Outside tap was great idea shame wasn’t a hose to do his belly and legs before entering cottage. Views out the windows of the river where beautiful I would definitely stay again. So peaceful. But as it’s a dog friendly place definitely a little hose outside would be a fabulous addition. This place is amazing fantastic walks in the area.
Mrs Bradley
Couldn’t fault anything. We loved our stay there and would definitely book it again.
Mr Birkett
Overall, we were very happy with the property. It was very nicely decorated, comfortable and clean, with a lovely river view. We really prefer an enclosed garden for our dog, but we did realise the property was without that when we booked. We found parking difficult, but again, we did know about the limitations when booking. For those two reasons only, we'll look for a different property next time we're staying in the area.
Mrs Love
Excellent stay
Mr Lowthorpe
The cottage was situated well in and had the local shops and pub just around the corner. Although I can’t fault the cottage as such I wouldn’t say that it’s really suitable for a long stay as a family of 4. If you wanted to eat out a lot then it would be fine, we could have done with a few more bowls, plates, pots and pans etc. We had to buy kitchen ‘extras’ - cling film, tinfoil (which we left for the next visitors) salt and pepper etc. Maybe these things were missing due to Covid and trying to keep things safe for other people. I would go and stay at the cottage again however I think it was a little over priced.
Mrs Haith
We had another very enjoyable stay at Esk Cottage, I marked down the cleanliness as there was a ball and some dog chews under the chair which I found after dropping my phone . We will definitely be back again
Mrs Pearson
Average property, way over priced.
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
Mrs Ansell
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
We had a lovely stay, no issues other than a problem with the hot water and heating which turned out to be the boiler trip. Our main criticism was that lack of any logs for the fire on arrival. For nearly £700 for 4 nights a £5 bag of logs to start off wouldn’t be much to ask! The property was well equipped but would benefit from the addition of a salt and pepper set and a toast rack The dishwasher needed rinse aid and we weren’t about to rush out and buy that! The towel rail in the bathroom didn’t work. A nice peaceful location right in the river in a lovely village, nice walks and the wonderful trains.
Mrs Harris
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.
Shaun and Janet, Farnborough Hamps.
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.
