    “Not as clean as I would have expected - dirty mugs so really felt like we had to wash all the crockery to start off with, thankfully there is a dishwasher.”

    Beds Clean and cottage tidy. Welcome pack pretty poor a basket wish crisps and a few bits then another basket with half a dozen tea bags and a few pencil sachets of coffee and sugar thankfully we arrived in time to go to the shop for supplies had we arrived late this would have not seen us through to the morning which is the least we would expect.

    Beds Clean and cottage tidy. Welcome pack pretty poor a basket wish crisps and a few bits then another basket with half a dozen tea bags and a few pencil sachets of coffee and sugar thankfully we arrived in time to go to the shop for supplies had we arrived late this would have not seen us through to the morning which is the least we would expect. Jam for sale ? Very poor, I think if they had spent an extra £10.00 on these types of things it would make a huge great difference and given we were paying over £800 for 4 nights for 4 adults I think they could have supplied a little better on logs / tea / coffee/ milk. The other thing that urks is a long list of what we have to do on exit...strips all the beds and put linen in bags - make sure the dishwasher has finished it cycle by check out time of 10am - its all a bit much - sadly wont be re-visiting

    Breaking the habit here by responding to this, I was most offended to hear of your disappointment of my complimentary welcome pack. Personally I find that a bottle of wine, a whole local fruit cake, a bag of crisps, a selection of biscuits, an additional extra of Easter eggs to mark the occasion, a pot of teabags, a handful of coffee sachets, coffee pods for the machine, milk, sugar & dog biscuits to be a most generous start to your self catering holiday. The wood burner includes a starter pack of fuel as stated in the listing, we are unable to provide an endless supply of any amenities, as this is a self catering cottage. As for the suggestions on departure, Sykes recommend that the property should be left as closely as possible to how you found it and encourage us to be clear with the tasks that need to be completed. To be honest I found it strange that you didn’t feel the need to wash up and to leave it for someone else! Property Owner

A trip to Grosmont wouldn’t be complete without an exciting excursion on the famous North York Moors Steam Railway, taking you on a scenic journey through the stunning national park, with the 1952-themed Grosmont Station home to the engine sheds where the steam and diesel locomotives are maintained and restored!

See the beautiful bluebells light up the local woods every May with a circular walk from Grosmont over to Beck Hole, or head along the riverside to Egton Bridge for another charming ramble.

Just a few miles away is Goathland, home to Heartbeat’s ‘Aidensfield’, well worth a visit for any fans of the show, along with the Danby Moors National Park Centre, with its interesting displays and exhibitions.

Venture over to the coastal town of Whitby to spend a classic day at the seaside at Whitby Beach, home to golden sands and backed by a host of amusements and amenities; visit Whitby Abbey reached via 199 Steps for stunning views over the town and coast, get a picture beneath the Whalebone Arch, explore the winding streets, and embark on an exciting Whitby Whale Watching trip out to sea!

With the stunning moors and the scenic coast to explore, this Grosmont cottage, Wychood, is the perfect base for a family holiday to the North York Moors National Park.

About the location

GROSMONT

Whitby 5 miles.

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.
