“Great base to explore the Whitby area”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2017

Cottage has everything you could need- clean, quiet and easy to find thanks to Paul's excellent instructions.Paul had left information in the cottage about local attractions many of which we were unaware of . Had a wonderful week exploring the area especially the railway walk into Whitby and Eden Camp.

Owner's reply: Many thanks Maxine for your excellent review. Good to hear you enjoyed our quiet surroundings and found my information useful when exploring the various attractions in our area. Please contact me again if you are looking to visit North Yorkshire. Best wishes Paul

“Lovely family break”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2017

Had a lovely time away with our two children aged 5 and 2. Well equipped cottage ideal for exploring Whitby and surrounding areas.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Great to hear you had a lovely short break with the children. Best wishes Paul and Dianne

“Excellent stay!”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2014

Excellent stay at Grosmont Cottage! We arrived and everything was perfect. The children loved the grounds and we felt it was peaceful and relaxing. Excellent location in Ruswarp and close to all the tourist spots but with good local amenities too. There was everything we needed in the beautiful cottage and excellent information provided on local attractions. I will definitely be booking here again and again! We did not want to leave, I would highly recommend this location and this cottage.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review and it was great to hear you all enjoyed your stay in the lovely village of Ruswarp. Many thanks for your positive comments. I hope you are able to find a spare week for another stay very soon. Kind Regards Paul

“Beautiful cottage-Great location.”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

What a find! Spotlessly clean, fantastic location and great views. Everything we needed and more. Well equipped, comfy beds and sofa's. The location was great for exploring the Whitby area and the transport links from the village were reliable, although the walk into Whitby was lovely too. We were blessed with great weather which was a bonus. The only downside was the hill to the cottage if you walked up-a proper lung buster but so worth it for the views from the top. Only other thing the cottage needed is a full length mirror-other than that no complaints whatsoever! Would love to return.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review of Grosmont Cottage. It was great to hear you had a good holiday and your comments on my cottage and your stay are very much appreciated. I hope you will visit Whitby again in the future. Kind regards Paul

“Just as good as before”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2012

This was our second visit (inside 4 years) and again was well worth it. A great scenic location overlooking Ruswarp village, Grosmont Cottage was a great base for our holiday again, with everything we could need. We had great weather (luckily), but in any case it is a cosy retreat to go back to, with decent size play area for the kids to play around in to the back of the cottages without having to keep an eye on them (the cows and sheep in the adjoining fields do that). Location-wise, Whitby is 5 mins away with the great bays of Sandsend (10 mins) and Runswick (15 mins) a short drive north, Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay to the south and 'Heartbeat Country' approx 20 mins away. Ruswarp village with its riverside setting on the Esk itself is well worth a look (miniature railway, huge indoor and outdoor centre for the kids, boating, great butchers!). If you're looking to visit the North Yorks coast, this is a great place to think about staying at.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your excellent review on Grosmont Cottage, it is always a pleasure to welcome back return guests. Your review is a very good description of the cottage location and all the facilities available in the locality for holidaymakers. We hope you will be back for another stay shortly. Best Regards Paul & Dianne

“Lovely cottage in a peaceful location”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2011

My husband and I stayed at Grosmont Cottage whilst visiting family in the Whitby area. The cottage was ideal, two very pretty bedrooms, nice living room and newly fitted kitchen. The TV reception was poor but we didn't mind that and I am only mentioning it as I know lots of families could not exist without constant television. There is plenty of good quality cutlery, china and cooking equipment. There is lots of grassy outdoor space for children to run about in with a couple of benches and picnic tables . Our grandchildren visited us for the day and loved it. We were extremely lucky with the weather and we used the picnic tables on a couple of evenings for entertaining family and loved the beautiful views and the silence - it was so quiet you could hear the sheep chewing the grass! We saw deer, rabbits and pheasant and numerous birds. The only thing that would have improved out stay would have been our own outside eating area. Just a small table and a couple of chairs outside the front door would have made our breakfasts idyllic and would have saved the running backwards and forwards that trying to serve a meal at the picnic tables necessitated.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review of Grosmont Cottage. One update after this review. Please don't be put off booking Grosmont Cottage because of the reported poor TV reception. After the 2012 digital switch over in Whitby the cottage reception is fine on all TV stations. Paul Rushworth (owner)
