**NEW** A charming river-front cottage which has been newly 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!

Immaculate cottage with wonderful views of the river and a great location near the shops, railway station, cafes and inn




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; there is a small outside area overlooking the river with seating to sit and enjoy the view – maybe over a Yorkshire cream tea? – during the summer months.



What's on nearby?


Nestling in the Esk Valley, Grosmont is a charming village with the famous North York Moors Railway running through it; visit the station and watch the steam trains, wonderful reminders of a bygone age.   Why not enjoy a ride and visit Whitby in one direction or Pickering to the other, meandering through miles of beautiful countryside to reach your destination and taking in lovely villages such as Egton and Goathland – home to ITV’s Heartbeat TV series.  There’s also a Pullman dining carriage at certain times of year which is a gastronomic delight!

The village has a small Co-operative supermarket – which is Britain’s oldest Co-op – which stocks a variety of products including a superb range of artisan gins from distilleries across North Yorkshire – plus an art gallery, lovely tea rooms, picnic area and a village pub that serves good food.

North York Moors

The cottage is in the beautiful North York Moors – perfect for hiking or even a simple stroll enjoying this unspoilt area.  Why not try cycling, out door adventures or even visit Go Ape in the Dalby Forest?   The moorland is home to wildlife and is fantastic at every season – whether it’s wearing its vibrant green coat or purple heather.    At certain times a year there are star gazing festivals – well worth a visit.  Neighbouring villages are picturesque and are home to many country inns, some of which boast award winning dining experiences.


This famous seaside town and former fishing port is a c. ten minute drive.  There’s so much to see and do, for all ages, in Whitby, it’s a much-loved location with amazing heritage and one of the few seaside locations where the sun rises and sets over the same bay.

Whitby Museum in Pannetts Park

There’s many great exhibits in this charming and interesting museum, that shows the extensive and fascinating history that Whitby has; definitely worth a visit.  Lovely children’s playground nearby too.

Whitby Abbey

Situated on the top of Whitby’s East Cliff, it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in the seaside town and inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the world-famous novel and most filmed book of all time, that was part-written in Whitby when the author stayed here in Victorian times.   The Visitor Centre, run by English Heritage, is excellent.

St Mary’s Church

Climb the famous 199 steps for glorious views of the harbour and across the town of Whitby; visit this charming and historic church, with its original pews, interesting history and exhibits.

Captain Cook Memorial Museum

Enjoy a tour of Whitby’s famous son, Captain Cook, and his voyages of discovery.

The Dracula Experience

Brave the Dracula Experience on the harbour-side, where you’ll hear the story of Dracula and the connections to Whitby – a little scary but a must!

Whitby Beach

The beaches are sandy and golden and the pretty harbour – with its famous swing bridge – is edged with stylish wine bars and award-winning restaurants.   Walk along the pier with its iconic lighthouse and look over the bay and across to Sandsend – wonderful as the sun is setting – or take some of our famous fish and chips and sit, enjoying the incomparable views.

Whitby Harbour

Go crabbing- a favourite pastime – from the harbour or simply watch the sun go down over the old town – especially nice over a glass of something chilled!  Enjoy a boat ride around the bay including a sunset cruise up the coast to Sandsend.


Whitby has many independent, quaint shops selling wonderful ware from Whitby jet or hand-made soaps, to gifts, retro sweets, books, artwork and clothing.  There’s a market held in the old town with its cobbled streets, or why not walk along Henrietta Street near The 199 Steps and visit Fortune’s Kippers – a smokehouse that’s been family run for generations.    There are lots of cute cafes and tea rooms serving Whitby’s famous crab sandwiches or glorious home made cakes along with a pot of Yorkshire Tea, ideal to sit and relax along the way, then continue, refreshed!

Eat, drink and be merry!

Whitby has established a reputation for providing a wide range of eateries – from traditional pubs and pie shops to award-winning restaurants and champagne bars.  There’s numerous fish and chip restaurants, some of which attract visitors from all over the world.   Whatever your tastes, there will be something to suit, from simple fare to culinary delights!

Whitby Goth Festivals/Folk Week/Whitby Regatta

Whitby is home to many wonderful events that attract visitors from across the UK and overseas.  Why not come during the two Goth Festivals, Folk Week or the wonderful Whitby Regatta, incredibly popular extravaganzas that take place annually and are such a treat.

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.

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.

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!

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 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!

Very relaxing break. Loved Grosmont, felt I was stepping back in time. Visited Sandsend, Staithes and Saltburn. All well worth the trip.
