“FAB COTTAGE, IDEAL LOCATION”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just returned from a week at this cottage, the location is very peaceful. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Ideal placement for touring the local seaside towns and villages. Will consider this again for a break later in the year.

Great to hear you had a good week and enjoyed the cottage and local area so much.
We are pleased you found Grosmont Cottage so well situated for enjoying the peaceful surroundings of stunning Eskdale but only 1 mile from Whitby.
I have just received your booking for late September. Many thanks from Paul and Dianne.

“Pleasant cottage with lovely views”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The cottage is compact, but very well equipped. On the plus side the cottage was clean, and it is in a lovely setting, being in a courtyard with other holiday cottages, and having lovely views all around. As another reviewer commented the shower does lack power. If i could suggest an improvment it would be to install a powerful aerial as we could only receive BBC 1 & 2, and whilst we are not TV addcits, having greater choice would be nice. Also WIFI-the other cottages had it.The cottage is in an ideal position to visit both the moors and coast.

Thank you for your cottage review. It was good to hear you thought the cottage was well equipped and you enjoyed the lovely position in Eskdale.

In responce to your comments. Most cottages have either a bath or a shower, we advertise a shower over a bath which is not a power shower because of the mess a power shower would make when not in a substantial shower cubicle.
You could only watch BBC1 and BBC2. During various stays at our cottage I haven't had any problem receiving all the main TV stations and possibly the TV needed tuning, guests do tend to play with the channels.
You comment that the lack of Wi-Fi was a downside and the other cottages had it. Why then choose a cottage which doesn't have Wi-Fi? You made your booking through a large Agency group who advertise many cottages in and around Whitby both with and without Wi-Fi. If you wanted Wi-Fi you should have booked a cottage stating they had Wi-Fi. Our family like to leave the stress of computers and games machines when on holiday which is an individuals personal choice so we don't advertise Wi-Fi.
I hope the lack of the above facilities didn't spoil your holiday too much. Can I also suggest to you that booking a cottage direct with the cottage owner advertising on the web through Holidaylettings for future holidays would save you money ( Agencies such as the one you used add on 25% to our own rental prices for their advertising and costs ) and also you can check what facilities are provided directly with the owner before booking.

Thank you once again for your review and for staying at Grosmont Cottage. Best Wishes Paul & Dianne

“Had a great time, brilliant location.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Great location for exploring Whitby and surrounding area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/pans and easy to cook in. The drive up the lane to the cottage is quite steep, I wouldn't want to attempt it on an icy morning. Very quiet location and very handy for Ruswarp.

There were other cottages on site with wifi, not a huge issue as good 3G phone signal for researching.

Clutching at straws, the shower was very weak but lovely and hot!
