Region: The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
Town: Set in the North East of the North Yorkshire Moors, Grosmont is surrounded by woodlands and traditional farmland. It was originally known as Grandimont, named after the priory of the same name, founded in about 1200AD. There are no visible remains of the priory today, however some notable artefacts lie about one mile to the east of the village close to weathered monoliths known as the ‘High Bride Stones. A second group of stones further down are know as the ‘Low Bride Stones’. During the Industrial Revolution, Grosmont became a centre for mining iron ore. In 1835, a new railway opened between Pickering and Whitby, one of the earliest in Yorkshire, and in 1865 the Esk Valley branch was constructed, forming a junction at Grosmont. Today, the line has been reopened and is enjoyed by people of all ages; visitors and railway enthusiasts alike come to enjoy one of the most spectacular stretches of railway landscape in the world.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

The cottage is a real home from home. One excited 5 year old - in bed with Thomas the Tank Engine bedding - couldn't have been happier. Everything for our convenience including games and puzzles and books. First time we have had exactly the right accommodation ( one double and three singles) Very handy shop within two minutes walk as well as cafe and station. Excellent booking service from Sykes and amazing service from house cleaner.

We had a great week staying at the cottage which was really cosy and having the steam trains near was great. It was centrally based for touring the area. We did not want to leave at the end of the week I would definately recommend this cottage and look forward to returning for another holiday at Steam Railway Cottage.

We stayed at the cottage in november. 4 good bedrooms, huge family kitchen. It was a joy to get back to at the end of a day out, as weather was damp and foggy. Lit the log fire, cooked nice meal or went to the lovely local pub for meal. Would definitly stay again.

The cottage was as described - fully equipped and
as well serviced as we expected from our previous
holidays with Sykes. From memory ( 18 months ago)
the listing did say there was an allocated parking
space at the rear of the property. There was - but
it required a 25 metre reverse and some skill to
use the allocated space. It was not as problem for
us but it may be for less - dare i say? - younger
drivers. In addition the access road was bumpy and
we 'grounded' our car when fully laden (probably
outside the owners control). Overall i would rate
our visit to this property as very very good - the
location was excellent for us - so much so that we
seriously considered attempting to purchase the
adjacent cottage which was for sale at the time.
