    “Over all we had a good holiday at this cottage.”

    We had just one major problem with a broken light fitting, but after a phone call that evening to the owner, an electrician arrived the next morning and fixed it. Very satisfied with that response. We have just two minor things to bring to your attention. ...

    We had just one major problem with a broken light fitting, but after a phone call that evening to the owner, an electrician arrived the next morning and fixed it. Very satisfied with that response. We have just two minor things to bring to your attention. First: And this can be a problem at many cottages we visit, and that is the lack of sufficient storage space for food items in the kitchen. This cottage was no different from 95% of cottages we have rented in that it had insufficient storage cupboard. What cupboards it did have, and it did have quite a lot of them, BUT the were almost all being used for Plates, pans, etc. All of which is needed and it was well appointed with these things, just lack of space for the items we wished to store. Second: This is basically a very minor item. The sink in the bathroom had a crack in it. It didn't stop us using it, but I feel it would be better if it was not there. I have no wish to be negative about this cottage because that would NOT be a true reflection of it, I would say that we 98% satisfied with it.

The property

Grosmont 1.5 miles.

An attractive mid-terrace cottage nestled amidst beautiful countryside, in the small hamlet of Esk Valley, near Grosmont.

Originally an old railway property, it is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday, with the advantage of watching the steam trains on the North York Moors Steam Railway passing close by.

Entry to the cottage is via the back door, into the spacious kitchen with a dining area to one side.

This bright and cheerful room leads into a charming sitting room, with comfortable sofas set around a cosy open fire, ideal for warming your toes on a winter’s evening!

With a lovely homely feel, the cottage feels warm and inviting.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both with superb views over the glorious scenery.

The immediate surrounding countryside is a haven for nature lovers and a walkers’ paradise, with a network of public footpaths from the doorstep, including the popular Rail Trail that takes you to Goathland.

The small village of Grosmont can be reached either on foot or by winding country lanes and is the home to the steam railway.

Wander around the engine sheds, watch the trains puffing in and out of the station, or partake in tea and cakes in one of the tempting tea rooms, including the converted school.

The local inn serves tasty home-cooked food and the art gallery has many interesting exhibits.

Just a short drive brings you to the historic seaside port of Whitby, with its long sandy beaches, famous Abbey and picturesque harbour.

With pretty inland and coastal villages to explore and the nearby market towns of Pickering and Helmsley an easy drive, Chapel Cottage provides an excellent base for a family holiday.

About the location

GROSMONT

Whitby 5 miles.

The pretty village of Grosmont sits at the junction of the River Esk and Murk Esk in the midst of striking Moors scenery. The area is characterised by its narrow roads, steep hills and scenic views over valleys of patchwork fields and wide open expanses of moorland. Grosmont itself lies in the centre of ‘Heartbeat Country’ and is famous for being the home of the North York Moors Steam Railway. The Railway has been preserved and run by enthusiasts since 1973 and today carries upwards of 300,000 passengers a year. The village has a general store, post office, book shop, cafes and a pub. It makes a great base for exploring the many pretty farming villages along the Esk Valley and the wider North York Moors National Park, as well as the small fishing villages along the North Yorkshire Coastline.
