  • "Excellent base to explore the area."

    We managed Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough, Sandsend, Malton, Durham, York and Helmsley in the week we were there. Well appointed holiady cottage with a great kitchen area, comfortable bedrooms/lounge and bathrooms aplenty. Grosmont is lovely too, but only thing to be wary of is if you don't like driving down narrow/twisty roads, this place probably isn't for you! If you can handle that, it's a truly wonderful place to stay. The welcome gifts from the owners (cake, milk, wine - three life essentials obviously) was also a very thoughtful touch. View from the front is also spectacular. We definitely want to explore the area more (discovered some family links on the Yorkshire/Durham borders), so when we do get back up to visit the area, would be delighted to stay here again.

  • "Limber View is a lovely well appointed cottage, well equipped, well decorated and stunning views- but with one major problem - the bed."

    The bed is described as king size but is actually a small double. Worse, it very uncomfortable and mattress is of poor quality. We had achy backs and did not sleep well - a major component of a holiday. We would love to stay in this cottage again but would not do so unless there was new mattresses. The owner did provide a single foam mattress topper for us which marginally improved things but did not mask the real problem of the mattress. Such a shame when everything else was of high quality.

  • "Limber View is beautifully appointed and very well equipped."

    It is decorated and furnished to a very high standard and it was a perfect home-from-home for us. It's in a very peaceful location and it was lovely to lie in bed and listen to the owls at night. Whilst staying in Grosmont, we visited the following locations: Falling Foss Waterfall and Tea Garden Mallyan Spout Waterfall Goathland Thirsk Whitby & Whitby Abbey Staithes Runswick Bay Robin Hood's Bay The only information that may have been helpful is where to find the nearest petrol station and supermarket. We found them easily with our mobile phones but the mobile signal and roaming internet access is not always reliable when out and about and we didn't see many petrol stations in the area.

  • "The cottage was very well equipped and had lovely views."

    Being close to the steam trains was a bonus . We did find the bed a bit too firm and missed the cushions on the kitchen benches , but these should be there now . The owner was very helpful when we needed help printing tickets for our RSPB boat trip at Bridlington , (that is to be recommended.!) We enjoyed doing alms in this beautiful part of Yorkshire .

  • "We very much enjoyed our week at Limber View."

    The cottage was very well appointed and comfortable. Improvements would be some small vegetable peeling knives, otherwise everything else was perfect. Carolyn Higginson

  • "Thanks to the gentleman who dealt with my call when we locked ourselves out."

    Very friendly and capable. Rang back as promised and arranged for the owner to be contacted as promised. Thanks again in rescuing what could have been a disastrous event!

  • "Because of Covid19 some soft furnishings had been removed but that did not detract from the general cosiness of the cottage."

    The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed plus a big thank you to the owners for the welcoming bottle of wine, cake, milk, tea and coffee. The flowers also were a lovely touch. Grosmont a good location for easy access to coast and countrside. The only disappointment was that the steam trains were not running for passengers until 17 May but we did manage to see them in action getting ready for their first trip out in many months.

  • "Limber View is a gorgeous holiday cottage with everything you need."

    Highly recommended for a family of four wanting to visit the area. The place was cleaned to the new Covid standard and the extra measures put in place meant we felt very safe and well cared for. Amazing views from the cottage and the steam train running daily from the village. The cottage is perfectly located for visiting Whitby and the surrounding coastline and of course Dalby forest. Take your walking shoes and bikes!

  • "We have had a lovely stay here at Limber View!"

    We enjoyed a walk to Goathland along the old rail trail and caught the train back. Lovely days out at Falling Foss, Robin Hood's Bay and Runswick Bay. We look forward to staying again soon. Thank you for the lovely flowers, wine and cakes!!!

  • "Thank you so much for making our holiday even more special by taking such care to create a tastefully, refurbished, well-equipped 'home from home' which we have looked forward to returning to every day!"

    As well as enjoying fantastic weather, we have also been on some very beautiful scenic walks (copies of which we have left should any of your future guests be interested). We will definitely be taking some wonderful memories back to Dorest with us in this 'land of contrasts'! Thank you too for our very welcome complimentary gifts of milk, wine and delicious Yorkshire curt tarts. To sum up - An absolutely fantastic place to stay in every way!

  • "We have had another lovely stay at Limber View."

    Travelled very light this time as cottage is so well-equipped. Only a short say but enjoyed he walk back from Goathland Station - via the Old School House Cafe which does lovely food and cakes. Can recommend Robin Hood Bay for a lovely long walk and Whitby is a wonderful place for a wander. Lots of beautiful scenery to photograph/paint. The Station Tavern does a lovely meat pie and The Station does a good cheap and cheerful breakfast. All in all a wonderful relaxing break. Thank you for a lovely stay and the welcome package. (Magpie Cafe in Whitby does lovely fish and chips - but it does get busy!)

About the location


Whitby 5 miles.

The pretty village of Grosmont sits at the junction of the River Esk and Murk Esk in the midst of striking North Yorkshire 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 ‘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, art gallery, 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 North Yorkshire Coastline with characterful harbour towns and villages.
