About Pauline Robinson

Peter and Pauline Robinson. Very friendly people who take pride in our holiday cottage. We are there at weekends to make sure everything is up to standard.

60% of our bookings are people who return often.

Pauline Robinson purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Pauline Robinson chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We bought our other cottage,next door, in 1982 as we love the location. My husband is a steam train enthusiast and I love the large garden and open views of the countryside. It is an idyllic location peaceful and relaxing with no passing traffic. It is an ideal base for touring the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and close to the heritage coast.

What makes this cottage unique

Walks from the back door. Views of the steam trains powering up the line. A variety of birds feeding on the table in the garden. Very pleasant large garden surrounded by open 'heartbeat' countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

' There isn't a word in the dictionary to describe this wonderful place. I wish we could stay forever. The children want to live here.'

' Our 6th time here and just as special as the first time. Still discovering more walks and birds. We'll be back.'

Charming country cottage with unrivalled views.

  • 4 of 5

Warm friendly welcome from the owners after easily finding the cottage from instructions they sent in the post. Beautiful setting in the valley plus right next to the NYM steam railway for those who are train fans. No problem if you are not a fan as the trains don't start till mid morning and finish early evening, at least at this time of year! Plenty of birds and fields of animals to see too.

The cottage itself was well stocked, including a little tray with tea coffee and biscuits on!

Everything was clean, if a little well worn.

The best party of this cottage is its location. 20 min walk and you are in grosmont. Easy driving to the coast and Pickering/ Goathland of you don't mind a few steep windy lanes!

Looking forward returning again very soon. Great place for a slow paced family holiday with a train mad little boy.

Arrived in pitch dark and awoke to glorious views. Walked out of the door into stunning countryside and had the most amazing weekend.
