Hidden behind Grove House is the excellently appointeded Grove Cottage. In bygone days it was the housekeeper's residence.
Furnished to high standard everything was supplied for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. An excellent welcome pack greeted us and there was a good supply of logs and kindling for those 'boy scouts' who enjoy exploring the woodburner!
The surrounding area is saturated with tourist attractions for all ages and there are good restaurants within easy striking distance.
All in all an excellent property and well worth a visit.
My husband and I stayed at Grove Cottage for 5 nights with our Jack Russell. It is furnished to a high standard - with a fabulous wood burner and comfy bed. Location wise it's great for dog walks. Thirsk is only 4 miles or so away with some great pubs for lunch. Train to York only takes about 20 mins or so too.
Jeremy is an incredibly friendly host - providing lovely lemon drizzle cake on arrival and a rather tasty bottle of red.
There really is no wifi - be prepared. It's a god send if you're needing a break from work and there are plenty of free hotspots in the town!
Stayed here between xmas and new year for a relaxing couple of days.
Beautiful cottage and some lovely little added extras included from the owners, wine, sweet mince pies, fresh bread and butter.
20 min drive to Sutton bank national park.
A great Indian restaurant 10 mins along road. Collection only.
Close to thirsk.
The cottage was warm, welcoming, nicely decorated and well-equipped. We were delighted to find a Christmas tree and other Christmas decorations when we arrived, which made it seem even more cosy. It was in a good location for driving to Thirsk, Ripon, Fountains Abbey, etc. The spacious bedroom held a large comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. The bathroom was equally spacious and contained a large traditional-style bath with a hand-held shower attachment, suitable for a long relaxing soak after a day's walking. In addition to the usual equipment, the kitchen had basic supplies like coffee and tea, bread and butter, and cleaning materials, plus the welcome bonus of some tasy home-made mince pies and a bottle of wine. The only slight disadvantage was that we couldn't get a wifi signal or a mobile phone signal during our stay, but this was a minor inconvenience. We would certainly recommend this cottage, and would stay there again.
Grove Cottage was a real find as we needed to be near Thirsk for a wedding. It was perfect so cosy & luxurious. Jeremy & Judith have thought of everything & the cottage is well equipped with many extra's. It is in a great location for walking & seeing lots quaint villages. We would definitely recommend this gorgeous cottage.
What a fantastic cottage and great hosts we had a very enjoyable time would recommend this cottage to anyone came home all relaxed after a much needed holiday
Stayed at this beautiful cottage with my husband, 7 year old son and 11 year old dog. It looked exactly has it is shown in the pictures and was absolutely spotless. The little touches from the owners was a lovely surprise, fresh bread and butter, lemon drizzle cake, a pint of milk and a bottle of chilled white wine.
The cottage has a lovely wood burning stove which is all made up and ready to light, however, the central heating is so good and the cottage so toasty we didn't need it - must stay again when it is even colder.
The cottage is a fabulous base for visiting the local attractions, Studeley Royal Park & Fountains Abbey, Lightwater Valley or venturing into the lovely town off Ripon for a mooch round the shops.
The cottage has everything you need for a lovely relaxing break in beautiful surroundings.
We would definitely recommend it.
