Stayed for 6 nights and wished it was more! Numi and Charles made us feel very welcome from start to finish. We loved the location and accommodation - breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Esk valley was idyllic. The room had everything we needed and the decor throughout reflected Numi's eye for design and Charles' photographic prowess. As hosts, they were great to chat to, but never intrusive. Thanks for getting the perfect balance!
PS I'll miss that fantastic porridge in the morning!!!

“quirky, friendly and charming country cottage”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at groves hall for one night as we were at a wedding in sleight. On arrival we received a warm welcome and Charles helped us plan our stay for the weekend. The beds were extremely comfy and the gardens were beautiful. I shall definitely be returning for another visit if we ever get back to sleight.

We had a lovely weekend break at Groves Hall. The house is great , full of quirky things and set in gorgeous countryside but very close to Whitby. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable.. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious,. Thank you

Hi Tina,
Thanks for choosing to stay with us. The garden has undergone some more transformations this Summer, and will be looking superb next year. Hope to see you again.

“Perfect rural getaway”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just spent the weekend at Groves Hall in Sleights near Whitby. If you are looking for a real country house experience next to the drama and beauty of the North Yorkshire moors and only a short drive or busride in to famous seaside resort of Whitby, then this is the place for you. Lovely house, amazing interiors, your own private garden and stretch of the River Esk for fishing, cat therapy, good food and company, I can't think of anything critical to say about the place...except perhaps that the water takes quite a while to heat up when you want to have a shower! So I went for a swim in the river instead. Alan Harding 10/6/15
