The cottage is a short distance from Whitby and is situated on a hill so you can see the abbey. There is equipment for young children to play on and sheep viewed from your window.

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.

Management response:

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.
