A very enjoyable stay, cottage very clean and on the whole perfect for our stay. Only slight issue was the cottage wasn't as disabled friendly as it could have been, but this is commonplace in areas like this due to the hills & terrain etc.
Property very close to Grosmont station so is perfect for the railway, I would recommend the property overall.

Me and my family came to lilac cottage for a long weekend. The cottage is very well kept. It's very clean and has anything you may need from towels to tea bags! The cottage is in a perfect location just a short 2 minute walk to the local shop, pub and train station. Grosmont is a turly
Beautiful place. We had an amazing time! We will be back to grosmont and we will definitely stay at lilac cottage! 10 out of 10.

Had a week at this lovely cottage, Ruth the owner kindly left us tea, coffee & bikkies. And was on hand incase we needed her.The cottage is spacious and has two double beds upstairs with crisp clean bedding. There's a bed settee downstairs which was good as we'd taken the elderly in-laws and one of them couldn't manage the stairs so this was perfect.The upstairs bathroom is large with lots of fresh towels. The kitchen is modern with everything you could need. This location the is perfect if you want peace & quite. Grosmont is a perfect little village which we always love to visit, the NYMR is like a step back in time with the steam trains which we loved. In all we had a lovely stay and will be making a return visit.

The owner has thought of every thing right home from home we needed for nothing I had taken stuff I didn't need to use because it was already there. Thank you so much Ruth we will be recommending your cottage to anyone who will listen.

“Excellent Find”

What a great little gem this property is. We booked mainly because of its location to the NYMR just down the road and Whitby. It was very well presented, clean, cosy and comfortable. It seems the owners had thought of everything especially in the kitchen and the tea,milk and biscuits were a lovely touch. We were 3 generations of family ages from 23 to 78 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. We plan to return later in the year.

Set in a lovely quiet location not far from Whitby and all the Coastal resorts. The owner was lovely and easy to contact. Everything we could have needed was there. Beds were comfy and clean. Loads of clean towels and extra bedding. Overall an excellent base to visit places and lots of lovely nearby walks. Many thanks Ruth!

“Very Relaxing week”

Stayed at Lilac Cottage during the first week of August this year with our grandson.
The property is clean has plenty of room both upstairs and downstairs, nice kitchen and utility room, outside is a lovely decking area with seats and this catches the evening sun.
The owners have a shop in the village called steaming loco so easy to call in if you have any questions, the property is only about 5 minutes walk down to Grosmont station and is secluded down a little lane opposite Grosmont House Hotel making it very peaceful and relaxing.
We spent time on the NYMR to Whitby one day and caught the train to Goathland on another and walked back via the Rail Trail more downhill doing it this way.
Called at the Moors Centre near Danby for another enjoyable day out and also visited Robin Hoods Bay and Saltburn by the Sea both of which were very nice.
Its an excellent base to explore the area and we would recommend to any other prospective users
