One of the best equipped holiday cottages we have ever stayed at, everything needed was there. Great location for the moors and beaches of North Yorkshire and of course the North Yorkshire Moors Railway right on the door step.
Really beautiful location in a pretty village, clean inside and the furniture was very comfortable. Very well equipped kitchen - we still miss the oven!
The Crossing Keepers Cottage in Grosmont was excellent for viewing trains on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Also it was handy for the pub and the village shop and also dog friendly so it was perfect for my partner’s birthday surprise weekend away.
The holiday cottage was amazing location so much to do within a few miles walking ,steam train or driving ,or just relaxing indoors with log burner going watching the steam trains coming in and out the station .
This was the perfect location to introduce my South London family to Yorkshire. The steam train was entrancing, the cottage clean and homely with lovely decor. The local pub does great food!
Super holiday cottage, right by the steam trains! It was thoughtfully equipped with almost everything we needed, and we appreciated the provision of teabags, etc. The price was very affordable and the staff I spoke to on the ‘phone were very pleasant. Only 1 small problem - there is no hairdryer at the property, and when I rang in advance to check this, I was told there was one. We would have brought one with us if we’d known. However, this was a minor matter - overall, a great holiday cottage - thank you.
The quaint village of Grosmont is a great area for walkers with many stunning trails and footpaths taking you from the village through breathtaking countryside and onto other moorland villages and towns. The town is famous for being a stop on the North Yorkshire Moors railway which runs from the village to the nearby town of Pickering, allowing you to see the beauty of the moors from the comfort of a steam train. There is also the Esk Valley line that runs from Grosmont to the coastal town of Whitby in the summer months. Whitby is the nearest town to the village at just under 7 miles away, making Grosmont an excellent base for exploring the moors and the Yorkshire coast. Whitby has an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and bars however you don't need to leave Grosmont to pick up your essentials, the village's local co-op shop is the oldest of it's kind still serving today and specialises in selling local Yorkshire produce and groceries. There's also a variety of independent shops where you can pick up a souvenir or gift and even an art gallery where you can admire the work of local Yorkshire artists such as Robert Brindley and Ailsa Nichilson. After a day out walking in the moors what better way to replenish your energy than enjoying a slice of cake and a coffee in one of Grosmont's many tearooms.
