  • "A lovely family break in a village that had woodland and countryside walks on the doorstep and beaches only a few miles away."

    Really enjoyed the view over the river and spotting Kingfishers, cormorants and dippers whilst we had breakfast. A compact but well laid out cottage with easy access to the village shop, steam trains, local walks. We hadn't spotted that there was no washing machine but this was no big deal. Everything worked as it should. Would quite happily return in the future.

  • "So central but quiet location."

    Ideal for us as we used train every day. Nice to relax on balcony with river running by

  • "The cottage was everything we wanted and it was great having the electrical recharge as well, although the railway was so close that we used the trains more."

    The facilities were as described and we had enough of everything. Thank you for the welcome treats. Parking is a little awkward, we would recommend that you suggest driving down and reversing back in your instructions. As any car driver would have to reverse one way or the other it's only a minor change.

Centrally positioned near the shops and eateries of Grosmont, whilst resting within the North York Moors National Park, Riverbank View offers a homely abode for a self-catering stay, inviting four guests.

Benefit from a private off-road parking space and an EV charger, before making your way into your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into the traditionally-styled living/dining room, featuring original beams, dining seating for four, a rustling woodburning stove, and plush seating, whilst also enjoying access out to the private balcony.

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 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.
