We have stayed at Lilac Cottage for years. This time we chose a long weekend. When arrived we found that the cottage had recently been refurbished to a great standard. We love the log fire, especially in the winter months! We always bring our dogs which Ruth and Ian are fine with. There are two living rooms which are perfect for when the children want to play a game or watch tv in the other room. There is an upstairs and downstairs bathroom. The beds are lovely and comfortable and fresh linen and towels are always provided. The decking is perfectly angled to catch the afternoon/evening sun - it really is a little sun trap. Also the garden is alive with butterflies and birds. We've enjoyed many BBQs there in the warmer months. Take your own BBQ though. There is a brilliant butchers in a nearby village called Sleights. The cottage is great value for money, especially when the location is taken into account!

The village is an idea retreat with the station, a pub and local shops on the doorstep. Whitby is a short car journey away (about 10 minutes) where there is always something to do. The weather was lovely and we walked from Goathland (Heartbeat Country) to Grosmont, calling at Birch Hall Inn for a liquid refreshment! This is also a popular watering hole with the locals... you'll find out why!!!

We would and have recommended Lilac Cottage. We'll be in touch soon for the summer holidays! Thanks again for a wonderful holiday x

Fantastic location home from home and close to the Steam train vintage station and not far from heartbeat film set. Would certainly recommend to family and friends!

“Great weekend at the cottage!”

My wife & I had a fabulous weekend stay at Lilac Cottage in the lovely village of Grosmont.
The cottage was very clean and well furnished with everything we needed for our stay. It was an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.

As we were only there for the weekend we ate at the local pub one night....Delicious!...... and in Whitby the following day.
Grosmont is a beautiful little village with a really quaint train station.
We also stumbled across a maintenance shed along from the train station where old steam trains were being re-furbished by enthusiasts and I was delighted to see the ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’......amongst others...... being restored. I had a pin badge of this train as a kid!....A real blast from the past!

We went for a walk over the hills and loved the fabulous country views.
The highlight though was a trip on an old steam train to Whitby for Fish & Chips.
We will be returning to Lilac Cottage and hope to stay a little longer next time so that we can explore a little more!
