  • "A wonderful cottage, very cosy and plenty of room."

    Great location for Grosmont, Goathland and Beckhole. Certainly worth a visit, have stayed there twice now.

  • "This is our second visit to this property and we loved it just as much this time around."

    Great location, if you like steam trains. Very quiet and well equipped. We’ll look forwards to our next visit

  • "Very nice cottage in need of some checks."

    Bathroom door wouldn't shut or lock the new owners sent someone round quickly sort it out, he was able to make it shut but sadly we found it still didn't lock! All it needed was a small piece of wood! The bed in the 3rd bedroom was used by an adult of no heavy weight. The slats collapsed when he sat on the bed causing there mattress to fall through, this happened a couple of times it looks like the bits holding the slats are inadequate, plus any slight movement it just creaked and groaned! As experienced renters of holiday cottages my son says "this was the worst bed he's ever had "and he couldn't sleep that well at all. The main bedroom is a long way from the bathroom, if the new owners could put in a downstairs toilet it would greatly improve the facilities. I believe this has also been suggested by others. Instructions for the washer/dryer would be helpful.

  • "This is one of the most comfortable cottages we have stayed in, everything you need is in the cottage, on the plus side the garden has now been done so you can sit and have an evening drink, must be good that is the 4 time we have stayed here."

    The only downside we could find was the lack of none slip matt in the bath.The dogs loved the treats and a nice touch was the fresh flowers, no dout we will be back again.

  • "We had a lovely week at Wychwood."

    The property was clean but needed airing and the bathroom was a little tired in places. The carpets appeared to be brand new and the bedrooms were very clean. The master bedroom is on the ground floor so a bit of a trek to the bathroom. It was lacking blackout curtains which was a major issue for us sleeping when it became light in the morning. The owners should look at rectifying this, along with adding a full size mirror in the room. I would suggest swapping the master and the twin bedrooms round if possible as the rooms were similar sized as it would be a lot nicer upstairs with better views and the bathroom next door if you were a lone couple stopping. The twin bedroom was lacking a wardrobe as was the single so hanging space was limited. The garden was fantastic, a great little sun trap and had sun all the way to the sunset. There was a table and chairs with an umbrella to relax on. We had an issue with a faulty cold water tap leaving no water in the kitchen and a broken gate, both were rectified within a day so very impressed. Parking was very tight however it was possible to fit our two big cars there with a bit of manoeuvring. The property was extremely well stocked with equipment and I would think you would have everything you needed in the kitchen to make some of the biggest of meals. Overall a great stay and we would recommend Wychwood. Great location for the railway and exploring the North Yorkshire moors and coast.

  • "Fabulous cottage, lovely location, clean and tidy with everything we needed."

    We will have to come back to use that lovely wood burner in the lounge which was all set up with instructions for lighting - it was just too warm to warrant using it!

  • "An absolutely brilliant week."

    The cottage, as usual, was first class and close to all the amenities we needed. The cottage itself is well presented and has everything a family would need for a perfect stay.

  • "Great spot especially if you love the steam railways and moments away from beautiful Yorkshire Dales and moors."

    Pub a few hundred metres away and also locals very friendly. Cottage was spot on

  • "Another fantastic week at Wychwood, its a shame we had to wait 17 months to return because of Covid but it was well worth the wait, still a comfortable, cosy cottage and immaculately clean, things were quiet in Grosmont as the steam railway had not yet reopened but this makes you appreciate the beautiful surroundings and walks even more."

    One of our favourite places to eat was Steam in the Geal galley but sadly the owners of steam have moved in to Robin Hoods bay, however the old school house tea rooms are now doing pizza three nights a week and it’s delicious, the witching post pub in nearby Egton is a lovely place for for food and drink and they are shortly opening a tea rooms too. Fish and chips from sleights were as good as ever . I know Wychwood is now under new owners and it would be great if they would consider putting a downstairs toilet in the boiler room, that would make this cottage absolutely perfect given that one of the bedrooms is downstairs, cannot wait to stay here again

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.
