Detached Stone House On The Edge Of Grosmont With Superb Views Of The Esk Valley



Updated: 05-Oct-2016
House in Grosmont, Nr Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors - Excellent Walking Country With Direct Access To The Moors, The Coast To Coast Walk Passes The House

Our usual changeover day is Friday, especially at peak times. At other times we try to be flexible. The house will be available after 4pm on the day of your arrival and must be vacated by 10am on your day of departure

Hillside enjoys an elevated position overlooking the Esk Valley. There is easy access to the village with its historic steam train station and workshops which are open to visit. A short drive across the beautiful moors leads to the bustling port of Whitby and many other quaint villages await discovery each with their own delightful charms. From the doorstep walks lead in all directions and with a little planning you can even come home by train! The house has a new oil fired central heating system with a cosy woodburner in the lounge. The location is very peaceful only disturbed by the gentle puff of the steam trains down in the valley and the call of the woodpeckers and the pheasants.

About the Owner

Carole and Mike have been renovating properties here and in France for some years now. This house and setting are so lovely that we have decided to keep it and let it out rather than sell the house on.

Wonderful house and views are superb!

  • 5 of 5

Family weekend to celebrate 2 birthdays! We have been to this area many times before, but not stayed in Hillside. House was very comfortable and we could all have stayed much longer if we hadn't had 'jobs' to return to. Definitely a place to visit again.

peaceful location, stunning views, very well and tastefully equipped property

  • 5 of 5

This property is tastefully and very well equipped, with plenty of space for 8 people. There is a very large downstairs toilet with separate bathroom which is very useful. There is a living room with a cosy log burning stove.

The location is fabulous- uninterrupted views over the valley, and the only sounds you can hear are the occasional toot of the steam train. There are very well placed benches on the front garden where you can sit enjoying the views. Whitby is only 10 minutes away, so you can enjoy its amenities, but the local villages on the Esk valley are lovely and behind the house stretches the wonderful heather moorland. Robin Hoods Bay is also only a short drive away as well.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us that stayed in the house ranging from the age of 50 years old to 8 weeks old! It was a lovely house which was very spacious yet still felt cosy. Everything we needed was there.

The views from this house really were stunning and it was situated in a great location, just a few miles from Goathland and Whitby and only a 5 minute work to the train station where you can catch the steam train.

I would definitely recommend it.

Amazing house and location!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with beautiful views in a great location. 6 of us stayed whilst mountain biking in Dalby forest, it was perfect, lots of room, great facilities and a real 'home from home' feeling. The kitchen facilities were superb when cooking for all of us and the use of the garage was just what we needed with 6 bikes. The village is only a short walk away with a steam train for trips to Whitby for fish and chips, a great pub and decent local shop. I would recommend this house to anyone and will definitely be re-booking next year!

A wonderful place for 8 of us. very well kept house with character. Excellent communication with Owners. Would highly recommend. Even though I'm a red rose, Yorkshire is a beautiful County.

A beautiful, comfortable house with wonderful views perfectly situated for our holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well maintained with a good range of facilities well matched to our extended family (including a baby, a lively 4 year old and a large dog). The enclosed garden and excellent nearby walks were ideal. The ease of access to Whitby and to the North Yorks Railway were another plus point. we would definitely come again. The documentation provided for the stay was very helpful.
