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.

The cottage was wonderful and superbly kitted out to a very high standard, we enjoyed our stay and met the owner who was very helpful and obliging
Mr Booker
Everything a holiday cottage should be. Hosts have made these cottages a real home from home.
Mrs Bourne
Overall we found Preacher's Rest to be a comfortable, clean and well-appointed rental property that suited us as a family of two adults and two children. The property had everything we needed for our stay and it was kind of the owners to leave us some fresh milk and a cake to welcome us. It is a fascinating property, being the rear part of a converted chapel, and Grosmont is a quiet little moors village, with a station on the heritage North York Moors railway. It is well located for hiking and exploring the Moors and very close to the towns of Whitby and Pickering. We did not have any issues with wi-fi reception apart from in the single bedded room, where it was patchy. The open plan top floor, featuring kitchen, dining and living area, is airy, light, warm and welcoming and the star of the show. The twin bedded and single bedded bedroom are small, but this can be noted from photos. In terms of room for improvement we can not fault very much, just the following: we found the mattresses to be a bit uncomfortable; the en-suite to the twin bedded room has an unpleasant smell (possibly a drainage issue); with no access to an airing cupboard and no heated towel rail in the property then it meant towels stayed very wet during our visit. Even though we visited in the height of Summer, the bedrooms remained quite cold while the upstairs living area was very warm indeed. Overall we had a very pleasant stay in this comfortable and well apppointed accommodation in a lovely location in the North York Moors.
Prof Cinnirella
The property was located in a beautiful area with stunning views. The local steam train was a lovely unexpected bonus. As for the property itself, the converted church was even more stunning in person than we expected and had more than everything we needed to enjoy a home from home experience. Will definitely be back
Mr Putaman
Great property. Very comfortable and has been converted to a very high standard. Well equipped kitchen and spacious lounge area, Great location for walking and trips to the N Yorkshire coast. Only 200 yards from the North Yorkshire Moors railway station - although up a steep hill! Very good.
Mr Watson
Wonderful Yorkshire, wonderful weather and most importantly wonderful Preachers Rest. One of the nicest holiday rentals we have stayed in. The upstairs living area and kitchen were enchanting with WiFi being spot on (no problems experienced even with 4 using WiFi at the same time!). All beds were comfortable and plenty of towels provided for our use. A thoroughly well thought out property and a delight to stay in. The holiday particulars should mention the steep steps up from the car parking area and that the property is over 3 floors... The 3rd and smallest bedroom was at the entrance alone on a lower level away from the other 2 bedrooms down a corridoor. This was fine for us being all adults, but might not be suitable if a young child has to sleep there away from all others! SUGGESTION: Another saucepan (or 2) would have made all the difference when cooking a meal for 4/5. Only 2 provided. Also, kitchen serving spoon with holes in - difficult to get poached eggs out without one. Would highly recommend staying here. We loved it and were sad to leave. EXTRA NOTE: If taking a second car there is a car park at the station charging £5 per day (for 24 hours). This itself is not a problem, but sadly this daily charge runs from 12 midnight and states that should a car be in the car park for more than 5 consecutive days it will be towed away. Not very helpful from whoever owns the car park!
Mrs Kingston
The furnishings and fittings are of the highest quality and we had a very comfortable stay. There is plenty to do and see within the Grosmont area and we enjoyed excellent and friendly service throughout our stay.
Mr Wardhaugh
Absolutely brilliant. Can’t fault the place we had a brilliant time.Loved the property. Some really nice touches for arrival. Flowers and Wine were very much appreciated. Thanks.
Mr Ledger
Preacher's Rest is an excellent holiday rental in a beautiful location. There is plenty of space inside and the property was recently decorated and was very clean. The welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, sugar and fruit cake (Yorkshire Brack) was excellent, and exceptionally helpful after a long drive. As well as the welcome pack we had toilet roll in each en suite, plenty of towels, bedding, washing up supplies, dishwasher tablets, and so on. A lot more than you get in many holiday rentals. Supermarkets do deliver here and we had no problem in getting a Tesco delivery on the day of arrival. There is a basic shop in the village but a better option is the Sainsbury or Aldi in Whitby which is a short drive away. Further afield there are places like Helmsley that have a good selection of local bakers, butchers and so on. Some reviews mentioned problems in the past with the wi-fi. There was certainly nothing wrong with the wi-fi when we visited and the TV had no issues picking up the internet for the iPlayer or YouTube. The owner was very friendly and helped us out with a problem with our car which he certainly didn't have to do. As stated in the description there is parking for one vehicle outside the property. The train station car park which is for other vehicles is a short walk down the hill. There are some steps up to the property and a good number of stairs inside the property as it is on three floors. I believe the owners have a disability friendly rental on the same site, so it would be worth checking that if you would find stairs an issue.
Mr Wren
Fabulous location near to village facilities. Spacious living areas. Well equipped kitchen. Excellent heating system and good wifi. Comfy beds and great showers.
Mrs Barleggs
Fabulous place to stay, we loved it
Mr Preece
Wonderfully clean and well appointed holiday home. Added extras of wine, cake, milk, tea and coffee were simply the icing on the cake. Beautiful sunsets to watch from the elevated position across the Yorkshire countryside. Brilliant, relaxing week.
Mr Chapman
One of the best holiday rentals we've ever had. Clean with a well equiped kitchen and beautifully decorated. Grosmont is also a wonderful little village well positioned to explore the surrounding area.
Mr Thomas
We had a lovely peaceful week. The property was lively and cool when the weather was hot. A great spot for exploring the moors, getting down to the Forest, York and getting to the beach!
Mrs Martindale
The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped. We all enjoyed our time there.
Mrs Windess
Accommodation was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location is brilliant with plenty of walks from the door and the steam railway just down the street. Only downsides were that we couldn't get the TV to connect to the broadband so could only watch live TV. Heated towel rails in the bathrooms would be good to avoid the towels and the bathrooms feeling damp after use.
Mr Green
Great location and well appointed property. Owners helpful, WiFi reception good.
Ms Pearce
Great position with access to both sea and and countryside.
Mr Winter
Amazing accommodation with exceptional views you can’t even describe. A lovely peaceful environment and gorgeous local area.
Mrs Dyson
No internet coverage in the sitting room area
Mr Barker
Mrs Radford
We had a lovely few days at Preachers Rest. The place was spotless and had everything we wanted. The only thing that was not perfect was the poor TV reception and average WiFi but this didn't bother us. We would thoroughly recommend it.
Mr Thackray
Preacher’s Rest is one of two holiday lets in a converted chapel. The chapel is set into a hill. Preacher’s Rest is at the back, facing the hill and another property above it. On either side are further properties. There is a steep incline leading to the chapel and a set of steps to get to the entrance which makes it unsuitable for people with mobility issues or the elderly. This information is missing from the description for this property. The upper floor of the property with the kitchen/dining and living area is lovely, bright, airy and modern. It has everything needed. The flowers, cake and milk on arrival were a kind and welcome gesture. Wifi and TV reception was excellent. The sofas were comfortable and the doors that open out to the gantry and the patio is a nice touch. Because this property is at the back of the chapel, walls surround it at ground floor window level. It makes the ground floor feel dark and more like a basement. The holiday lets next door look directly into the main bedroom. This made us feel uncomfortable getting dressed or undressed without the curtains closed. All three bedrooms are small. The single bedroom only takes a single bed from wall to wall, and the window cannot be opened. It is a tight squeeze in the bedrooms between the bed and the walls. In both double bedrooms there is a shelf protruding from a wall which you bump into when trying to squeeze past, particularly in the night. The bed in the main bedroom is not king size, it is a normal double bed. The mattresses are not the best quality. We had issues with the standard of cleaning in the bathrooms. We arrived to find mould on tiles and grouting in two of the bathrooms. There was dark mould and scum on the shower hose and in the bottom tracks of the shower. This came loose when we first ran the water, which was unpleasant. The owner came with the cleaner for a second clean but the dirt on the shower hose and some of the mould on the grouting was still overlooked. We couldn’t be bothered to call them out again because we wanted to enjoy our holiday, so I removed the remaining dirt in the main bathroom myself. The drain cover for this property is situated just outside the main bedroom window and on a couple of occasions when it was sunny there was a strong sewage smell coming from the drains. The second bathroom at this property has a half-sized bath tub and no window. This isn’t mentioned in the description. The picture shows a bathroom with a window. This should be corrected as it is misleading. The plastic strip which acts as a seal between the glass bath screen and the bath in this bathroom has not been cleaned for a long time. There is mould on the tiles and grout above the bath. We did notice a large number of sparrows nesting under the roof on the main bedroom side. We loved the birds and their noise but occupants of the neighbouring holiday lets pointed out the bird droppings on the wall and bathroom window of the chapel. We made the owner aware of a wasp nest under the roof tiles, next to the upper windows. We couldn’t open the windows on this side of the upper floor due to wasps immediately entering the kitchen area. Although the idea of the chapel conversion is nice and the upper floor was lovely, we wouldn’t feel comfortable enough to come back for another visit.
Mrs Archer
We had such a lovely week here. Preacher's Rest is beautiful and so cosy. We have been happy tucked up here on wet days! We had a lovely walk to Beck Hole - had a drink in the tiny pub there. Lovely meal at the Witching Post in Egton and lovely walks on the beach from Sandsend to Whitby. Thanks for such a welcome here - we've loved it.
Mr P Wilkes
Lovely time had by all - beautiful area with lots to do. Well equipped, very comfortable place to stay - thanks.
We have had an enjoyable week here in Grosmont made all the better by the high quality of accommodation! Thank you for the welcome pack, we're taking Brack home with us! We've visited Whitby, Scarborough, York and Castle Howard. We're not train enthusiasts, but visiting here we can see the attraction. We enjoyed a trip into Whitby and back. Highly recommend Preacher's Rest.
Beautiful holiday home! Elin (aged 6) says the little room is the best room ever, far away from the noisy adults! I am wracking my brain trying to think of anything that is missing but can't think of anything!Thank you very much. (Glass broken in the rush to leave it tidy - sorry.)
Dr T Fowler
Our second visit to this fabulous Chapel conversion. Previously we stayed at Chapel-on-the-Hill. They are both perfect; everything (and more) you could possibly want. Thank you for the welcome of milk, wine, gorgeous tarts and the lovely flowers. We've had a great week.
Had a lovely late summer 3 night stay in this beautiful property with our train-mad two year old! When we booked, we didn't even realised Grosmont had a train imagine his jublilation when he not only saw the beautiful station and steam trains but also a 'choo choo' tunnel you can walk through leading to a train shed and shop complete with model railway! We caught a train to Whitby, visited Sandsend and also Robin Hood's Bay which is a beautiful place. Very impressed with the accommodation - the owners have done an amazing job and seemingly have thought of EVERYTHING! Until next time...
The Cracknell Family
We have enjoyed our second stay at Preachers Rest and have been fortunate to have lovely weather. Thank you again for the welcome pack and we look forward to coming back.
We very much enjoyed our recent stay in Preacher's Rest - this is a stunning conversion of an old church and the accommodation was finished to an extremely high standard. Preparations for our stay by our hosts ensured we had a wonderful stay and would thoroughly recommend this property to others and look forward to returning.
I Philip, Kinross,
Just wanted to say what a fantastic week we have had in Yorkshire. Stunning chapel, all helped by the weather being so good. Many thanks.
