This property is a charming, brick-built end terraced cottage with plenty of character and comfortable accommodation for up to six people.

This delightful, brick-built end terraced house has been refurbished to a very high standard and is in the heart of the village of Grosmont. The property offers comfortable and welcoming accommodation for groups of up to six people. There is a large entrance hall and the sitting room is cosy, beautifully furnished and has a feature fireplace with a wood burner giving the room a restful atmosphere.

The kitchen has a farmhouse feel about it and is spacious and cheerful with a large pleasant dining area and a generous utility and boot room. There are three tranquil and stylish bedrooms ready for a relaxing night’s sleep and there is a first floor bathroom that has been stylishly finished and elegantly furnished. The outside space is no less impressive, with sheltered gardens offering a peaceful place to sit and enjoy this super property.


Quaint but fully loaded and close to everything we needed
Wychwood has to be one of the best cottages we have stayed in. It is beautiful on the outside with its floral draped pergola, and gorgeous in the inside with superb decor, fixtures and fittings. We were travelling with two elderly dogs so the ability for us to sleep on the ground floor was a great advantage and part of the reason we chose this cottage. One of the other reasons was that everywhere was carpeted (except for the kitchen and boot room) So many dog-friendly cottages have laminate or tiled floors for understandable reasons but, when you have two 16 year old dogs, skittering around on slippy hard floors isn't an option. Once they fall down they struggle to get up again. Every room was finished and furnished to a really high standard. Every single detail had been considered. The beds were comfortable and sowers the sofa and lounge chairs - a simple request, but one often not satisfied. We arrived to be greeted with a welcome tray, and very welcome it was. We had everything we needed to make tea and coffee including milk in the fridge. The washer/drier was also really useful. We actually came home with only a handful of washing - not bad for a week away! The little garden was a lovely addition. Unfortunately it isn't directly accessed from the house but rather, down a little shared path. This was fine except for when we needed to let the dogs out for a wee - they had to be supervised. It's not a busy road by any stretch but they are old and tend to wander off! I loved to get up early and sit in the garden in my dressing gown with a cup of tea. The location of the cottage is perfect for us, with the steam railway and the main line just a few hundred yards down the hill.The pub there is also very handy - not posh, a real pub but friendly and with good food. All in all a wonderful cottage, a fantastic weeks holiday and we wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Ideal for a stay in Grosmont
We were looking for somewhere quiet to stay as a base to explore this part of Yorkshire, and Wychwood in Grosmont was ideal for us. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. One room downstairs had been converted to a third bedroom, meaning besides the large kitchen diner there was only a modest sized lounge, but this was more than adequate for us - we were on holiday and didn't spend much time inside! Two further bedrooms upstairs meant there was ample room to sleep 5 people. A modern bathroom with towels provided completed the upstairs area. There was an attractive looking fireplace in the lounge with a wood burner fire, but being summer we never got to use it. There was also a small garden to the rear with a table and 4 chairs. A parking space for 2 cars completed the property. Wychwood is down a quiet lane with no passing traffic. It is literally 2-3 minutes walk to the middle of Grosmont which is a small village comprising 1 pub and train station, 1 convenience store and a number of tea rooms and an art gallery. There is also a souvenir shop. The pub is very friendly and serves large portions of well prepared meals. A useful tip, if you wish to visit the pub for an evening meal, then booking a table in advance is recommended. There is a steam train running from the station with a service that runs to Whitby. The cottage allows one well behaved dog. We took our pet and he loved the many footpaths through woods and across the surrounding hills where we walked him. All in all Wychwood suited our needs perfectly and we enjoyed our week here.

Lovely and well equipped house in a nice wee village. Everything provided you could need or wish for. Small but surprisingly peaceful garden. Steam railway and train memorabilia shops a bonus. Would definitely return.
