About the Owner

Tony and Sue are working professionals that run a 3 acre smallholding and holiday business in their days off and spare time.

We try to grow as much of our own food as possible and we keep happy hens and ducks, sheep and pigs.

We try to live as sustainably as possible and we generate our own electricity with solar panels. Heating and hot water are supplied by an eco friendly biomass boiler, however you wouldn't know as you will always be warm and have loads of hot water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really couldn't have asked for more at this excellent bed and breakfast close to Whitby in North Yorkshire. The communication from Tony and Sue was excellent before and we're so glad that we chose this location to spend our New Year. The accommodation itself was of a superior standard, with a very large double bedroom, cookies and a variety of teas/coffees on arrival. The room also had a flat screen tv and freeview box, both of which worked perfectly. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and located next to our room. Breakfast was served in a pleasant conservatory looking out over the garden. The real highlight for us was Tony and Sue, who were the perfect hosts. They both took the time to speak with us over breakfast and on both days offered to draw up some walking routes for us to follow. Tony also recommended a good place for us to eat when we arrived on the first evening. Overall, one of the best places we've stayed in a long time. Good location if you're visiting Whitby and the surrounding areas, great hosts and an excellent standard of accommodation. Would certainly recommend and hope to return again soon.

Clean, bright, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Though the road to Tony's is daunting for non UK natives, it is totally worth it. The shower room and rooms are clean and new. The host is friendly and very helpful (we arrived without our luggage). The setting is rolling hills and loads of trees and footpaths. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

The perfect get-away.

  • 5 of 5

Warm welcome from the owners. Beautifully appointed rooms, and immaculately clean. Sue and Tony went out of their way to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Lovely touches such as cake when we returned in the afternoon and fresh flowers in the room.

Position is beautiful - away from it all but within walking distance (2 miles down a disused railway track), and surrounded by wild-life and woodland. The garden at the property is large and attractive, and the sheep, ducks, hens and dog are all entertaining.

Convenient for Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, N. York moors, steam railway etc . If visiting Whitby in peak season, suggest you use the Park-and-Ride service.

Areal treasure. Would heartily recommend it. We shall be returning!

Fantastic place fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Valley view is well worth a visit. It is an absolute little gem. Sue and Tony are friendly hosts where nothing is too much trouble. It is the extra little touches that they went to, home made produce, home made cake waiting in your room after a long day out, interest in what youve been doing during the day, it is much nicer to have personal interaction with your host, rather than just being made to feel anonymous, they actually enjoyed making your stay as good as possible. Thank you to both of you. We will definitely be back.

Lovely rural place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Tony & Sue are great hosts, very helpful, breakfast provided was fresh and tasty. A lovely relaxing location, rural setting, cottage garden, lovely sitting out on their balcony. Everything you could wish for in the room with comfortable bed, chairs to relax. Close to Whitby, we really enjoyed our visit to this seaside town and trip on the steam train. Would highly recommend staying here.

Piece of heaven near Whitby

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at Golden Grove B&B and are already planning to return. Tony and Sue are perfect hosts, always there to help and offer advice on where to eat, drink and walk, but not intrusive. The rooms are very private, nicely decorated, with tea/coffee/chocolate/bottled water available along with home made cookies. Light, nourishing breakfasts are served overlooking the garden. We were offered a good selection of cereals, fruit juice, fresh fruit, yogurts and fresh bread toasted with a choice of Sues home made jams.

On returning from our first walk, we were lucky to have timed Sue's fruit cake being taken from the oven and were treated to a slice. The next day we were treated to freshly baked chocolate brownie. The garden is an abundance of different flowers, carefully tended by Sue and Tony. Together with the hens, ducks and lambs and noise of the river flowing by, you feel that you are at one with nature. A perfectly idyllic spot, and yet close to Whitby.

From the Owner

Golden Grove is a very small hamlet of houses 2 miles walk from the beautiful, historic harbour town of Whitby with its links to Captain Cook, Dracula and fishing. There is so much to see and do in Whitby that I won't attempt to list it all here, however many of the shops are quirky and not just the usual big chain shops. Valley View is 300m from our closest neighbour set in beautiful landscaped gardens. We live in a friendly, close knit community where people know each other and greet strangers so you can be assured of a warm welcome. There is no crime and hardly any traffic so you can walk around knowing you are safe. The local area is a haven for wildlife and there are plenty of Roe Deer, Badgers, owls and other birds so don't be surprised if you see them. If you want advice on the getting the best out of your stay we can help. Whether you want to see where Heartbeat was filmed, walk to the nearby ice cream farm, eat fish and chips in The world famous Magpie Cafe or catch your own on a Mackerel fishing trip then we are here to help Due to our rural location there is no public transport from the house however there is a nice 2 mile walk along a disused railway line into Whitby and there are numerous taxi firms which can collect you. You can walk the mile to Ruswarp where there is a pub and local bus service and a local train service.
