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.
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 station....so 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 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.
