Lavender Cottage is located in the quaint village of Grosmont. Less than 7 miles from the bustling seaside town of Whitby, Grosmont is perfect for those who want to enjoy a retreat in the countryside. Nestled within the North York Moors National Park, you can expect beautiful scenery during your stay.

There are plenty of stunning walks from the cottage, including the 3.5-mile Rail Trail which runs from Grosmont to Goathland. Just 60 metres from the cottage is Grosmont Station which is part of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. This 1952 themed station is the end of the heritage railway where the main rail network begins.

Lavender Cottage is just 50 metres from the local village pub and there is also a convenience store just down the road. Grosmont is home to a bookshop, a model railway and bus shop, and a number of cafes and tea rooms.

Getting Around
The North York Moors and surrounding area has a good network of rail and bus services, serving many of the main towns and villages, plus some fantastic walking and cycling routes if you'd rather get around under your own two feet (or wheels).

If you choose to travel around the area by car, there are many roads which are narrow and shared by other users. Very few of the roads have separate paths so you may well meet a walker, cyclist or horse-rider, so please drive carefully and take care.

Lovely cottage in an ideal location for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Station Tavern, Coop and Grosmont Crossing Club. Clean and comfy and with everything needed to cater for a few days.<br/><br/>There is a compulsory insurance payment over and above the fee which I think is disingenuous. The host communication was also not very clear. The parking space is small - it was OK for us but you would struggle with a big car such as an MPV.





Pleasant cottage in a lovely location.<br/>Tidy and reasonably furnished and decorated. <br/>Short walk from village shop and train station (also a local pub which we didn't visit as it is closed Mon & Tues) Train to Whitby is nice trip. No steam trains in November.<br/><br/>The Cottage was freezing when we arrived. No timers on electric heaters, guess no-one had stayed in a while. Dirty towel hung on the curtain pole. <br/>I have never stayed in a property with such barren cupboards! A few sachets of uht milk a few Tea bags. Clearly gone are the days of welcome trays ! I work in hospitality and have managed many properties, for the price paid out of season this one was a little lacking in comforts. I am not sure if this is on the part of the owners or the letting company.<br/>On a final note the messages chasing a unexpected insurance fee AFTER booking were not appreciated.



fantastic location<br/><br/>nothing



We booked LavenderCootage because we were going to spend time on NYMR. <br/>It was very convenient for the station and the pub. <br/>A nice , clean, comfortable cottage. <br/>Only two minor niggles, the TV could do with being WiFi enabled, allowing gueststo bring their own firesticks and the car parking space at the rear of the property was rather tight for our Volvo XC60.<br/>Overall a very pleasant stay.<br/>Overall





Great location for visiting Whitby and North Yorks with good transport links.<br/>A super cottage which was very clean and matched the description given. The kitchen was well equipped with instructions for appliances at hand. I would highly recommend staying at Lavender cottage.



Such a lovely place to stay and a beautiful scenic area. Host was very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.



The location was perfect<br/><br/>No enclosed garden, which is difficult with dogs



Had a lovely 2 night stay x quiet place and lovely location



the location was lovely,local shop,pub etc on your doorstep and beautiful views along the walk paths<br/><br/>there was nothing I could really fault about the cottage



ed was very comfortable<br/><br/>no sink in the toilet



Had everything you need to cook a meal. Very clean and had a very comfortable sleep. It was a bit cold when we first arrived but had plenty of heaters around the cottage and warmed up very quickly.<br/><br/>There wasn't anything we didn't like.



Beautiful little cottage. Great location. We came for the Whitby goth weekend but the cottage is in a perfect location for the coast to coast walk and the steam railway. <br/>Very secure property, great little out room space. Kitchen facilities were good. Very clean throughout. Bedding was comfortable. Great that there was a parking space round the back of the cottage to avoid street parking. The station inn local pub just maybe 50 metres down the road, lovely little village pub, serves a good pint. Communication from start to finish was excellent, polite and efficient.<br/><br/>Not really negatives, but maybe a larger couch in the livingroom or an extra armchair. Kettle liked to leak but again not a huge disaster.



Excellent communication and very responsive. Cottage was easy to find and very comfortable.<br/>Will definitely stay again



Lovely location and value for money. Would stay again



everything.<br/><br/>being very, very picky would be nice to have bigger second sofa in lounge but that’s just looking for something!



A lovely clean cottage. Would recommend



Lovely terraced cottage great for walking and exploring the area. I would recommend. Only small point is that we were looking for a cottage with an open fire - in an enquiry the fire was described as an open fire which it is not - it is an electric fire. Worth knowing that the only pub in the village was closed all three night when we were there so may be worth ringing and checking if you are relying on that as somewhere to eat - the nearest walkable pub is about 30 mins walk away in Egton. There is a cooperative type drinks only bar just across the road and there is a village shop.



Gorgeous cottage, quiet, well appointed kitchen, lovely little village. Very comfortable beds and good curtains.



1st Hist & Stay - if you’re not techy the lack of written guidelines is frustrating. My husband who is one such person was frustrated with this as he had to rely on me!<br/>2 I was really concerned when on one site we read it had gas central heating, only to find it was electric convector wall mounted heaters - because it was cold we had the heaters on most of the time, which made us feel very guilty because of the cost of heating<br/>3 asking people to leave clean and tidy when there was a lack of vacuum cleaner, broom brush etc<br/>However the above didn’t detract from our stay which we thoroughly enjoyed in spite of the inclement weather !!



Great location for trains to Whitby , nice quiet cottage , very clean



Nice cottage in a sweet village. Good location.<br/><br/>Hot water did not have enough for two people to wash and there was a significant delay for it to be turned back on. The “host and stay” system is very complicated and costs additional money for “damage deposit” does not seem worth it.





An extremely cosy little cottage in a lovely area. Everything you need is right at hand. Would definitely visit again. Loved that we could take our 2 little dogs along.<br/><br/>N/A as far as the cottage went. Booking was easy. The only slight difficulty was with emailing. Things got a bit confusing around the 'superhog' link/completion.
