“Never Wanted to Leave, Amazing Stay”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was our first visit to Grove Cottage. And going on our first impression when we arrived, we were already mentally booking the next visit.
Grove Cottage is a fantastic base to start any day. With so much stuff on your doorstep, a week is never enough.
We visited the National Railway Museum, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Eden Camp, Whitby, Scarborough, Bridlington, York Castle Museum, Helmsley Castle, Rievaulx Abbey, Pickering and popped in to Hutton-le-Hole during our stay. We were never more than an hour from anything.
The cottage itself is beautiful. Even though it's attached to the owner's own property, you never get the impression that you're being watched over. In fact, most of the time we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere on our own. Which was great, because it made it peaceful and relaxing. The layout of the property is great too. With a through plan downstairs consisting of lounge, kitchen and diner in one large room, with a large play room/snug off to the side. This was equally brilliant, as it meant we could shut our 5 year old in there with her toys and a DVD and not hear a peep from here for hours.
Upstairs is much the same, with a bedroom either end and the large bathroom between. Large walk in shower, and a fantastic view from the window when you're having a shave in the morning.
There are of course a couple of things that stand out with this property. There is the added bonus of an amazing hot tub, which we used every night (bar one due to bad weather). The second; the owners have 5 horses at the bottom of the garden, which leads on to their own paddock. 3 shires and 2 shetlands. We did venture down to say hello to them all, and the owner let us have some carrots to feed them. The shetlands stay a little closer to the house during the day in a fenced off section of the paddock, whereas the shires have the run of the field. We did however leave the house one day to find the shetlands running around in the owner's garden. They are very friendly.
This house is great for families of any age. We have a youngster and she loved it.
We will definitely be back again.

“Didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent an idyllic week at Grove Cottage in June 2014. It is a great base from which to explore - we took in Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough, Helmsley, Castle Howard, Light Water Valley and cycling in Dalby Forest. There are so many picture perfect villages in the area that we loved driving from place to place, taking it all in.

We found Grove Cottage to be immaculately presented, well equipped and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and informative and the welcoming milk and wine were most appreciated. The open plan layout downstairs works well and includes a large tv. We took full advantage of the hot tub, enjoying both the sun shine and then the starry skies - a fabulous way to relax. We didn't want to leave - would heartily recommend.

“Flawless - the best UK break we've ever had, and we've had a lot.”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A brilliant cottage all round - the hosts were wonderful, they made us feel so at home (wine in the fridge) and were there for anything we needed. The cottage was gorgeous - I wish our house was like that! Beautifully decorated, very contemporary, all the cooking utensils you could ask for and absolutely spotless - no dust whatsoever!
And the hot tub is just amazing and could easily fit 5-6 people - its was February and 5 degrees c outside but we were so cosy in it stargazing at midnight - very romantic!
Location is great - both York and Whitby are a very reasonable distance and the moors are great for rambling.
Will definitely stay again and probably bring a second couple to join us, the cottage was so spacious!

“Fab cottage with awesome hot tub”
Reviewed 25 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is an immaculate cottage with the super addition of a modern hot tub on the patio. The cottage is an extension of the owners property but you would hardly notice as they leave you to enjoy your holiday. A lovely touch on arrival is a bottle of chilled wine and tea/coffee. The cottage has two good sized bedrooms upstairs which sleep 4 and downstairs a smaller room with a bed/sofa which would sleep another adult or child. The bathroom is modern and very clean with a large shower, towels are provided for the bathroom and the hot tub too. Downstairs is a smart kitchen with dining area and the living space with a flat screen TV on the wall - DVD player available too if you want it. There is a fridge (no freezer) and a washing machine in the outhouse area. The interior of this cottage is excellent with modern fittings and immaculately presented. The hot tub outside is easy to use and a superb addition - it gives this cottage the edge over others we viewed and was the key reason we booked - we were not disappointed, it was easy to use and we were in it every night. The location of the cottage is ideal for exploring North Yorkshire and its coast - be careful as you approach as you may miss the turning. Basically hit the road to Pickering from the A64 and turn left when you see the Whole Hog farm shop and cafe.
Overall I would recommend this cottage to anyone - unless you are looking for lots of outdoor space - there isn't really any but you can gaze upon the owners horses in the next field as you sit in the hot tub so I don't think that matters.

“The hot tub is the star !”
Reviewed 15 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

people found this review helpful

Just back from a lovely stay at this property. Its exactly as described, squeeky clean and with some very nice touches such as a large walk in shower, and a good flat screen TV. The big attraction is of course the hot tub which was bigger than we expected, always ready to use and enjoyable at all times of day/ evening . A joy to watch the stars - plasic 'glass' in hand. You do need to camber up 3 steps and over to get in - not always the most elegant manouver and a person with mobility issues might have a problem. The owners provide pool towels as well as fabulous bathroom towels so that was a bonus.
The house itself is comfortable although I think that 5 adults in the living area might be a bit of a squeeze. The teenager used the downstairs bedroom and while she found it ok, there are no blinds on the skylight windows so it was pretty light in the mornings. No wardrobe in this room, so its really more of an extra than a proper single room although the property description is fair about this - its more of a place for 4+ adults.
The kitchen area is pleasantly furnished - we noticed a few things missing such as a working tin opener, a bread knife and being real coffee addicts , a caffitiere ! This is only a small 'complaint' the overall standard of furnishings etc is high. We didnt use them but there is a good standard of eqipment for babies/young children provided
The property is next to the owners' and we didnt see much of them. They have several pets and we loved seeing the dogs, cats and ponies about the place. The property is pretty near the main road - you can see cars from upstairs and you notice traffic sounds outside/ if the windows are open. For us it did not spoil the overall experience.
The property is rural , well situated for touring, but if you are looking for pretty hills and walking from your doorstep its possibly not the best choice. Eden Camp (recommended) is just down the road - as is Flamingoland if that is your thing. Both Pickering and Malton are 10 minutes away by car. The farm shop over the road has good butchery/ bread. We always find Sykes efficient
