July 2024

Amazing. This is what Airbnb should be about. I’ve stayed in lots of houses/hotels/flats and this is a hidden little gems with bags of character. Not like your everyday Ikea filled rental property. It was more like staying with family. Such lovely friendly hosts, amazing breakfast and nothing is trouble including rustling up some last minute pancakes for my young lad. Highly recommended and will be back when we next hit the coast. Thanks again for the lovely stay.

June 2024

Numi is a fantastic host, everything was possible, she serves a delicious breakfast and lives in a beautiful house, beautiful garden and beautiful surroundings.

May 2024

Lovely quirky b&b. Very welcoming hosts, who were keen to do whatever necessary to make the stay pleasant. Great, tasty breakfast. Shame we didn’t get chance to sit in the garden. we’d love to come back!

April 2024

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Numi and Charles were great hosts from the very start, welcoming us with tea and biscuits after our long drive! They have so much brilliant local knowledge and were able to recommend many lovely places to visit during the day and great pubs and restaurants in and around Whitby. The accommodation is extremely comfortable, we loved all the antiques, the magnificent grounds and (of course) the cats..!

March 2024

Numi and Charles were first class hosts. They made sure our four day stay was comfortable and helped us chose where to visit and eat in the evenings. Great choice for breakfast. The sitting room was welcoming and comfortable after a day exploring the area. We hope to be able to return in a Spring or Summer to enjoy the garden.

March 2024

We picked out Numis place for the quirky and eclectic style and it certainly didn’t disappoint! It is a feast for the eyes, with curios and artwork at every turn. And all very clean, comfortable and homely. The gardens are beautifully rambling and natural, where we enjoyed sitting with a glass of wine on a sunny evening.
There’s a pub serving delicious food, 30 mins walk on a path, or 5 mins drive, and plenty of choice in Whitby, 10 mins drive.
Numi and Charles are fabulous, interesting hosts, who are interested in their guests. They are very helpful and gave us great recommendations for eating out, and places to visit (and not to!). We felt so welcome in their home, and look forward to another stay in the future.
We highly recommend this property and it’s hosts.

November 2023

Loved our stay with Numi, cosy comfortable and quirky, breakfast fantastic, views wonderful, garden great to explore, comfortable beds and fabulous hosts.

September 2023

A magical house in glorious surroundings. We truly enjoyed our stay here with fabulous hosts Numi & Charles who were so generous with their time & knowledge of Yorkshire. Very comfortable twin bedded room with lovely artwork & a stunning Art Deco bathroom 😍 Delicious freshly cooked breakfasts. Cottage & Woodland gardens which were at the start of their Autumn best, thanks to the sunshine we experienced. We will return 💚

August 2023

We really enjoyed our two nights here at Numi’s place. Lovely, eclectic surroundings exactly as in the photos. Fabulous gardens with lots of places to sit and enjoy the view. Numi and Charles were friendly and welcoming and gave us good tips for where to eat and about the local area. We would definitely love to stay here again.

August 2023

Numi and Charles are wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much to ask for. Both days we had a delicious plant based breakfast with all the trimmings brought to us. We had peace and quiet and wonderful views. We had days out in Whitby which is worth a visit. The eclectic house is full of interesting displays of art and sculpture which added the charm and character we hoped for. Our hosts were charming and friendly, we left feeling like we had made friends for life.

August 2023

Highly recommended! Numi is a wonderful host, friendly and welcoming, but also gives you enough privacy. The house is in a perfect quiet location in nature with a beautiful harden. I loved the cosy bedroom (the view from the window especially) and the green art deco bathroom. Breakfast was amazing, I’ll be back to try the crêpes! 🙂 Great location to explore Whitby, hike around Robin Hood’s Bay, discover the moors etc

July 2023

Just got back from the beautiful Groves Hall, this place is stunning, the hosts Numi and Charles are so welcoming and kind, Groves Hall is in a stunning location and the house itself is gorgeous, we had the east wing of the house and was beautifully decorated, clean, and spectacular views from our bedroom window, comfy beds, lovely breakfast, and the gardens are just beautiful.

Felt right at home with Numi and Charles…lovely genuine people who look after their guests. we enjoyed a fab couple of days walking to Whitby along the cinderpath next to the railway. the Salmon Leap pub at the bottom of the bank from the house was friendly ..check-out the white peacocks in the back garden. Breakfasts were amazing and yumming had a full English and crepe with fruit the next morning felt totally spoilt with Numi’s quince jam. Leftwoth a tour of the ceramics studio and a Numi hug… would thoroughly recommend…. we will be back for more chilling 😎

June 2023

Numi and Charles made our stay really special. So friendly and kind and made the stay perfect. They went the extra mile, making sure we had exactly what we wanted . Really flexible and the breakfast was gorgeous in beautiful surroundings. I had gone with my friend to celebrate my 50th and was made to feel very special. Perfect stay. Wonderful people.

June 2023

Had a lovely stay at Groves Hall, in peaceful and beautiful surroundings, with a gorgeous, fragrant garden. Handy for the cinder track, which we did on bikes to Scarborough and back. Lovely to have a hot ‘Art Deco’ bath afterwards! Beds very comfy, breakfast sumptuous and delicious – couldn’t have been better. Numi and Charles were very kind and gracious hosts – thank you.

May 2023

Beautifully secluded in wonderful well kept grounds. Numi and Charles were fabulous hosts so kind and welcoming. The breakfast was as so good and a great choice. All cooked fresh by Numi and locally sourced. Our room was cosy and quirky, gorgeous bathroom! Lovely vintage furniture with a hint of the new. Location was perfect for us away from the hustle and bushel of central Whitby but a short taxi or train ride away. This was a special weekend away for us and it was made some much more perfect by this amazing home away from home. Our secret peaceful retreat. Idillic Thank you to Numi and Charles. We will be returning again very soon xx

March 2023

Stayed at “Groves Hall”Sleights for yet another lovely long weekend. We arrived and were warmly welcomed by our hosts Numi and Charles. Everything was just so as we had found on previous visits. The breakfasts are superb. It was nice to get away again into the beautiful countryside of the North Yorkshire Moors. Nature is getting ready to burst into spring,lovely.😊 If you want to recharge your batteries do give it a go,you won’t be disappointed

February 2023

A quick weekend away with my girlfriend as we had always wanted to visit the area to do some walking. What a great find! Warm and cosy with lovely views out of the bedroom window. The food was amazing, and we could choose what we wanted and sat in a lovely little nook which was a great way to start the day. Loved the cats who were very friendly, but still one we haven’t seen. Another reason to come back. Thanks Charles and Numi for being such lovely hosts

 

 

January 2023

We stayed for the weekend yet again and we’re warmly welcomed by our genial hosts Numi & Charles. If you want a peaceful retreat set in a stunning location then this is for you. Numi & Charles go above and beyond to make the break a cracking experience. The breakfasts are superb, and relaxing in the lounge in front of a blazing fire with a glass of wine, well it doesn’t get much better.🍷

 

 

November 2022

Had a great autumnal stay at Groves Hall. We felt welcome as soon as we arrived. Wonderful hosts and everything fab – especially the food. can’t recommend enough.

October 2022

Just got back from a long weekend in Whitby – a part of the country we’d not explored before…This place is a little gem – a beautiful 18th. Century house in a secluded spot next to the River Esk and within sight/sound of the North York Moors Steam Railway. The accommodation is comfortable and cosy yet spacious and is split over 2 floors – a beautiful sitting room and upstairs, an en-suite bedroom and adjoining breakfast area. It’s a great base for Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough, Middlesbrough and countless villages along the coast, as well as the beautiful scenery and walk the North York Moors have to offer. As other reviewees have said, the breakfast options are many (I’d go for the full English every time, though).Numi and Charles are wonderful and welcoming hosts and will do everything to make your stay a wonderful experience. Just ask if you need info about places to go, travel options, local pubs/restaurants, etc. – they’ll be able to help you out. Check out the gardens around the house – lots of different areas and nooks and crannies which have been or are in the process of being landscaped. Again, Numi and Charles will be happy to show you round if you wish. We’re definitely looking to return in the Spring/Summer for the longer, warmer days and the sunny colours of the countryside – oh, and a few more glasses of wine with Charles (a player of many stringed instruments) and Numi. Can’t recommend Groves Hall highly enough!

September 2022

We’ve just returned from 3 fantastic nights at Numi & Charles’ beautiful home in Sleights. The house is stunning as are the gardens, the accommodation is stylish, comfortable and spacious with it’s own lounge and lovely sunlit breakfast area. We used Sleights as a base for exploring the local area including Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and the beautiful woodland walks straight from the house. We had a superb freshly cooked breakfast every morning with plenty of choice (my partner is a vegetarian, I am not) which meant we rarely needed lunch (coffee & cake aside!). In addition to the hospitality & location, Numi & Charles are warm & welcoming and some of the most interesting people you could possibly hope to meet. We really did not want to leave at the end of our short break and will definitely be returning for a longer stay.

September 2022

I ended up being unable to come so my dad went instead. Numi and Charles were so lovely and welcoming and took great care of him. He had a great time and really enjoyed his stay. Thank you for your lovely communication with me! Can’t wait until I can come and stay too.

August 2022 
We spent a lovely couple of days at Numi and Charles’ charming B+B. It’s in a beautiful setting in Sleights with easy access to Whitby and the coast. The accommodation is stylish, spacious and comfortable, with lovely views. The cooked breakfasts are delicious! Numi also kindly booked cab transport and a table for my boyfriend and I at a nearby gastropub on our first night. We felt really welcomed at Groves Hall and intend to return. Thank you, Numi and Charles!

August 2022

Balm for the soul and a feast for the eyes! Perfect host,delightful views and quirky setting.

August 2022

Lovely relaxing environment after busy days out and about. Convenient for many sights in the area but away from. the hustle and bustle. Great way to start the day being served breakfast out in the garden. Lovely and friendly hosts I’ll certainly be recommending it to friends & family

July 2022

Numi & Charles we’re exceptional hosts, the accommodation is out of this world, and an ideal base for Whitby & the local area. Charle’s is a musical legend & Numi is an acomplished hotel manager bringing all her skills to the BnB. The breakfasts are to die for, and is nothing too much for them to do. The grounds are spectacular and having breakfast whilst the local pheasant is having his also next to you is beautiful. Charles has lots of stories to tell, and will quite happily show you round the 7 acres of land.. it’s like a secret garden, every twist and turn there’s an arch into another part of the garden. We will be back

July 2022
My friend Audrey booked this as a birthday gift for me as Whitby was a place that I had always wanted to visit and the are of Sleights is less than a 15 minute bus ride. Groves Hall is set in beautiful garden with many little areas that you can sit out and if the weather is nice you can choose to have your breakfast outside, and what a choice for breakfast, there was nothing that you could ask for that didn’t appear to be available.. The accommodation itself is unique as it is almost a home from home, you enter through your own entrance to a beautiful sitting room full of character and the most amazing real fire which will be lovely in the winter, there is also access to a downstairs toilet from the room, on the other side is the access to the sleeping quarters, you go up a white wooden staircase which brings you onto a little breakfast area that you can choose to eat there if the weather wasn’t so nice and then you enter the en-suite bedroom which has two slighter larger than standard bed frames and they were extremely comfortable, (this is coming from someone who works for a company that makes beds), there is a traditional fire and the rooms are all centrally heated also, the bathroom has all that you need including the shower and a bath. Breakfast is cooked by Numi and was delicious, both Numi and Charles were excellent hosts and took the time to talk to you and to check if you needed anything or if you required any transport to be booked for you. The view from our rooms was of the garden and occasionaly we would hear the steam train passing at the front and see the puff of steam which was a delight. I will be staying here again.
July 2022
We stayed for a long weekend and it was fab. Numi & Charles go above and beyond to make the stay an enjoyable experience. The breakfasts are outstanding, the full English was exceptional and the fresh fruit option was fantastic which I really enjoyed myself. If you want an enjoyable quiet break in beautiful surroundings with the stunning Moors on the doorstep and friendly hosts give Groves Hall. Sleights. a go, you will definitely not be disappointed.
May 2022
We really enjoyed at Groves Hall! If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful place, conveniently located, close to Whitby, with luxurious breakfast and generous and great hosts, look no further. You have your own bedroom as well as a living room, 2 bathrooms and access to their lovely garden. We loved it as a relaxing base to explore Whitby, Robin Hood’s bay, got on the steam train and hikes through the great moors with purple heather in flower. Breakfast was really abundant and good quality ingredients. I very much recommend the Grove Hall to everyone who values quality accommodation and genuine hospitality. We will def go back.

 

August 2021 

Numi and Charles are great hosts. They made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Groves Hall is located in such a tranquil setting. A great base to tour from and see Whitby and the stunning Yorkshire Coastline so very nearby. We enjoyed every breakfast sat outside in the garden and what a choice of breakfast we had. They are delicious. The resident Robin joined us each morning. We played Croquet on the lawn each day and sat in the garden in an evening and enjoyed a glass of wine after our day of full walking / visiting places. We could see the occasional Steam Train pass fron our bedroom window. We would love to return in a different season and experience the lit log fires. Thankyou Numi and Charles.

July 2021

A beautiful house and gardens with attentive hosts who were only too pleased to spend time with you and chat . We had some fascinating conversations. The accommodation was lovely and breakfasts were served on the terrace and were enjoyed by both of us. It was a good base for exploring Whitby and the surrounding national park . The moors were spectacular.

July 2021

We spent 2 nights at the delightful Grove Hall.A very warm welcome from Charles who,with a much appreciated chilled glass of white wine showed us around the grounds which are just lovely to sit and relax in after a busy day out and about.The accommodation is spotless and comfortable.Breakfast was special sitting ouside under the pergola,the choice was plenty and delicious …you could easily feel that you were in the South of France,WONDERFUL.Numi and Charles are charming hosts and most helpful.Fabulous stay and would certainly return

June 2021

What an amazing find, truly beautiful location, accommodation and wonderful hosts, we were so sad to leave. Numi and Charles made us feel very spoilt and we spent a lovely candle lit evening in their summerhouse too. Thank you

June 2021

We had a fantastic experience at Grove Hall. I’m glad my friend suggested that we go there for a long weekend break. I hadn’t expected that we’d have 2 floors of space, just for us. Our living room was lovely to sit in with a huge open fire, candles and sculptures. We had the best sleep with super comfortable mattresses and soothing country views. My favourite part was the mornings. We did yoga on a majestic lawn with stunning views. We even saw an old steam train in the distance one morning. I loved the outside seating area for breakfast, surrounded by trellises, flowers and birds. The breakfast menu was delicious and so filling. Numi and Charles were fantastic hosts. They were funny, caring and helpful. We felt so relaxed. One day we went on a local waterfall walk and wandered up to the local pub for dinner. On the other days we took day trips to the coast. It was a real experience staying at Grove Hall. If I could give a 10 star review, I would. It felt like being on retreat. We left feeling nurtured and so glad that we came. I won’t forget this place and hope to come back and stay again.

June 2021

Cannot fault anything.Lovely rooms, friendly hosts and bostin’ breakfasts!

January 2020

Beautiful location. We arrived for our short break and were met by Numi and immediately felt comfortable in our surroundings. The house is very beautiful set in lovely accessible gardens. We had a winter break and could imagine how the summer will transform the outside areas provided for guests to sit out and enjoy the views, the river flowing just below also lovely to see. Our room and beds were very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We met Charles too and enjoyed our conuly 2021versations. There are so many objects of interest to see around their home and this adds to the ambiance. We walked into Whitby via Ruswarp and walked alongside the railway lines . Great walk. Our breakfasts were a delight, we had cooked full English breakfasts both mornings served on our mezzanine ,home made jam with toast to follow, there was a good selection of other items too if we preferred. Would definitely recommend a stay here ,it’s so welcoming and ideally placed in unique surroundings. Thank you Numi and Charles

 

November 2019.

What a Gem we’ve found in Whitby… The location and the property was stunning… we booked a twin room at Groves Hall and when we turned up our amazing hosts Numi and Charles told us that we also got the lounge area complete with a log burning open fire to relax in blew us away… our beds were the comfiest we have slept in by far  and the bathroom was large and very clean with a great shower over bath and a heated towel rail for when you had done… and what about the breakfast i hear you say…. well it was flippin fantastic and the coffee… OMG the best coffee ever…. we didn’t think our stay could get any better until the second morning we went outside before breakfast to be greeted by wild deer foraging in the orchard WOW…. The grounds to the property are just as stunning… with seven acres of beauty to get lost in and so much to see, smell and enjoy including their own private stretch of river at the bottom of the garden which you can fish for salmon and sea trout… if your a train buff then heck yes they have them too, steam trains run regular along the side of the river… to sum up… it was like going home to visit your parents and been spoiled rotten…. would we go again i hear you ask…. hell yes, we’ve already booked from the end of May. Numi and Charles from our hearts THANK YOU and we will see you again soon x

October 2019

Our hosts were extremely welcoming and made us feel like valued guests in their home. Loved the accommodation at Groves Hall, with its vintage feel and contemporary accents. The house is set in beautiful tiered gardens offering a haven for birds. We didn’t venture down to the River Esk  that runs through the gardens but in the summer I can imagine enjoying a restful afternoon on the bank.


 

 

 

 

 

September 2019

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Groves Hall. Location, our host Numi, the old world feel of the whole house, antiques that filled the house and were in use, (not just there to be admired), the wonderful garden, breakfast on the terrace, the little sitting room we had all to ourselves, the cats and much more. Breakfast menu is extensive. Numi is such a great chirpy person and really seems to love what she does. Location was well situated as base to visit the moors and also head to Whitby and the sea.

September 2019

Beautiful place in a very quiet area. Awesome views from the gardens and owners who can’t do enough for you.

September 2019

Numi & Charles are fantastic hosts. They were extremely welcoming & accommodating. Nothing was a problem at all. Everything was fantastic, from the rooms to breakfast. Oh & the beds were divine to sleep on.

August 2019

Visited last year and wanted to return. Lovely hosts. Relaxing breakfast in the beautiful garden.

August 2019

The incredible owners who know how to make you feel at home. The warm welcome with a wow factor. The remarkable place full of charm. The delicious break fast. The breathtaking view over the valley. The quietness in the lovely garden. …. Everything from start to finish!

August 2019

Incredible place – what experienced travellers look for yet rarely find – a place full of charm, history and character in a stunning location. Plus incredible owners who know how to make you feel at home.

August 2019

Very welcoming I would highly recommend Grove Hall. There is also a secure place to leave your motorbike. I will definitely be going back on my next visit to Whitby.

July 2019

Delightful stay in Numi and Charles’ house. Our hosts welcomed us warmly, with tea in the garden. The grounds and the house decorations were exactly to our taste – carefully thought-out and executed but with no rigidity; a real home. The room was very comfortable, with a great view onto the garden and, further away, the North York Moors steam railway. Breakfast to die for – both full English, for me, and a lighter version, based on fresh fruit and delicious crêpes, for my partner. Idealy situated for visiting Whitby, Robin Hood”s Bay and the villages in the North York Moors. A definite “must stay here again”.

July 2019

This was our 2nd time with Numi and Charles, we really appreciated there company, we really enjoyed our stay for 2 nights they are lovely and kind Hosts, the breakfast was brilliant, I couldn’t thank them enough for what they did for us, and we will definitely be returning again, I would recommend friends and family to come and stay with them.

We’ve just returned from 3 fantastic nights at Numi & Charles’ beautiful home in Sleights. The house is stunning as are the gardens, the accommodation is stylish, comfortable and spacious with it’s own lounge and lovely sunlit breakfast area. We used Sleights as a base for exploring the local area including Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and the beautiful woodland walks straight from the house. We had a superb freshly cooked breakfast every morning with plenty of choice (my partner is a vegetarian, I am not) which meant we rarely needed lunch (coffee & cake aside!). In addition to the hospitality & location, Numi & Charles are warm & welcoming and some of the most interesting people you could possibly hope to meet. We really did not want to leave at the end of our short break and will definitely be returning for a longer stay.

I ended up being unable to come so my dad went instead. Numi and Charles were so lovely and welcoming and took great care of him. He had a great time and really enjoyed his stay. Thank you for your lovely communication with me! Can’t wait until I can come and stay too.

We spent a lovely couple of days at Numi and Charles’ charming B+B. It’s in a beautiful setting in Sleights with easy access to Whitby and the coast. The accommodation is stylish, spacious and comfortable, with lovely views. The cooked breakfasts are delicious! Numi also kindly booked cab transport and a table for my boyfriend and I at a nearby gastropub on our first night. We felt really welcomed at Groves Hall and intend to return. Thank you, Numi and Charles!

Lovely relaxing environment after busy days out and about. Convenient for many sights in the area but away from. the hustle and bustle. Great way to start the day being served breakfast out in the garden. Lovely and friendly hosts I’ll certainly be recommending it to friends & family

Numi & Charles we’re exceptional hosts, the accommodation is out of this world, and an ideal base for Whitby & the local area. Charle’s is a musical legend & Numi is an acomplished hotel manager bringing all her skills to the BnB. The breakfasts are to die for, and is nothing too much for them to do. The grounds are spectacular and having breakfast whilst the local pheasant is having his also next to you is beautiful. Charles has lots of stories to tell, and will quite happily show you round the 7 acres of land.. it’s like a secret garden, every twist and turn there’s an arch into another part of the garden. We will be back

My friend Audrey booked this as a birthday gift for me as Whitby was a place that I had always wanted to visit and the are of Sleights is less than a 15 minute bus ride. Groves Hall is set in beautiful garden with many little areas that you can sit out and if the weather is nice you can choose to have your breakfast outside, and what a choice for breakfast, there was nothing that you could ask for that didn’t appear to be available.. The accommodation itself is unique as it is almost a home from home, you enter through your own entrance to a beautiful sitting room full of character and the most amazing real fire which will be lovely in the winter, there is also access to a downstairs toilet from the room, on the other side is the access to the sleeping quarters, you go up a white wooden staircase which brings you onto a little breakfast area that you can choose to eat there if the weather wasn’t so nice and then you enter the en-suite bedroom which has two slighter larger than standard bed frames and they were extremely comfortable, (this is coming from someone who works for a company that makes beds), there is a traditional fire and the rooms are all centrally heated also, the bathroom has all that you need including the shower and a bath. Breakfast is cooked by Numi and was delicious, both Numi and Charles were excellent hosts and took the time to talk to you and to check if you needed anything or if you required any transport to be booked for you. The view from our rooms was of the garden and occasionaly we would hear the steam train passing at the front and see the puff of steam which was a delight. I will be staying here again.

We stayed for a long weekend and it was fab. Numi & Charles go above and beyond to make the stay an enjoyable experience. The breakfasts are outstanding, the full English was exceptional and the fresh fruit option was fantastic which I really enjoyed myself. If you want an enjoyable quiet break in beautiful surroundings with the stunning Moors on the doorstep and friendly hosts give Groves Hall. Sleights. a go, you will definitely not be disappointed.

We really enjoyed at Groves Hall! If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful place, conveniently located, close to Whitby, with luxurious breakfast and generous and great hosts, look no further. You have your own bedroom as well as a living room, 2 bathrooms and access to their lovely garden. We loved it as a relaxing base to explore Whitby, Robin Hood’s bay, got on the steam train and hikes through the great moors with purple heather in flower. Breakfast was really abundant and good quality ingredients. I very much recommend the Grove Hall to everyone who values quality accommodation and genuine hospitality. We will def go back.

Numi and Charles are great hosts. They made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Groves Hall is located in such a tranquil setting. A great base to tour from and see Whitby and the stunning Yorkshire Coastline so very nearby. We enjoyed every breakfast sat outside in the garden and what a choice of breakfast we had. They are delicious. The resident Robin joined us each morning. We played Croquet on the lawn each day and sat in the garden in an evening and enjoyed a glass of wine after our day of full walking / visiting places. We could see the occasional Steam Train pass fron our bedroom window. We would love to return in a different season and experience the lit log fires. Thankyou Numi and Charles.

A beautiful house and gardens with attentive hosts who were only too pleased to spend time with you and chat . We had some fascinating conversations. The accommodation was lovely and breakfasts were served on the terrace and were enjoyed by both of us. It was a good base for exploring Whitby and the surrounding national park . The moors were spectacular.

July 2021

What an amazing find, truly beautiful location, accommodation and wonderful hosts, we were so sad to leave. Numi and Charles made us feel very spoilt and we spent a lovely candle lit evening in their summerhouse too. Thank you

We had a fantastic experience at Grove Hall. I’m glad my friend suggested that we go there for a long weekend break. I hadn’t expected that we’d have 2 floors of space, just for us. Our living room was lovely to sit in with a huge open fire, candles and sculptures. We had the best sleep with super comfortable mattresses and soothing country views. My favourite part was the mornings. We did yoga on a majestic lawn with stunning views. We even saw an old steam train in the distance one morning. I loved the outside seating area for breakfast, surrounded by trellises, flowers and birds. The breakfast menu was delicious and so filling. Numi and Charles were fantastic hosts. They were funny, caring and helpful. We felt so relaxed. One day we went on a local waterfall walk and wandered up to the local pub for dinner. On the other days we took day trips to the coast. It was a real experience staying at Grove Hall. If I could give a 10 star review, I would. It felt like being on retreat. We left feeling nurtured and so glad that we came. I won’t forget this place and hope to come back and stay again.

Cannot fault anything.Lovely rooms, friendly hosts and bostin’ breakfasts!

January 2020

Beautiful location. We arrived for our short break and were met by Numi and immediately felt comfortable in our surroundings. The house is very beautiful set in lovely accessible gardens. We had a winter break and could imagine how the summer will transform the outside areas provided for guests to sit out and enjoy the views, the river flowing just below also lovely to see. Our room and beds were very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We met Charles too and enjoyed our conuly 2021versations. There are so many objects of interest to see around their home and this adds to the ambiance. We walked into Whitby via Ruswarp and walked alongside the railway lines . Great walk. Our breakfasts were a delight, we had cooked full English breakfasts both mornings served on our mezzanine ,home made jam with toast to follow, there was a good selection of other items too if we preferred. Would definitely recommend a stay here ,it’s so welcoming and ideally placed in unique surroundings. Thank you Numi and Charles

 

November 2019.

What a Gem we’ve found in Whitby… The location and the property was stunning… we booked a twin room at Groves Hall and when we turned up our amazing hosts Numi and Charles told us that we also got the lounge area complete with a log burning open fire to relax in blew us away… our beds were the comfiest we have slept in by far  and the bathroom was large and very clean with a great shower over bath and a heated towel rail for when you had done… and what about the breakfast i hear you say…. well it was flippin fantastic and the coffee… OMG the best coffee ever…. we didn’t think our stay could get any better until the second morning we went outside before breakfast to be greeted by wild deer foraging in the orchard WOW…. The grounds to the property are just as stunning… with seven acres of beauty to get lost in and so much to see, smell and enjoy including their own private stretch of river at the bottom of the garden which you can fish for salmon and sea trout… if your a train buff then heck yes they have them too, steam trains run regular along the side of the river… to sum up… it was like going home to visit your parents and been spoiled rotten…. would we go again i hear you ask…. hell yes, we’ve already booked from the end of May. Numi and Charles from our hearts THANK YOU and we will see you again soon x

Our hosts were extremely welcoming and made us feel like valued guests in their home. Loved the accommodation at Groves Hall, with its vintage feel and contemporary accents. The house is set in beautiful tiered gardens offering a haven for birds. We didn’t venture down to the River Esk  that runs through the gardens but in the summer I can imagine enjoying a restful afternoon on the bank.

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Groves Hall. Location, our host Numi, the old world feel of the whole house, antiques that filled the house and were in use, (not just there to be admired), the wonderful garden, breakfast on the terrace, the little sitting room we had all to ourselves, the cats and much more. Breakfast menu is extensive. Numi is such a great chirpy person and really seems to love what she does. Location was well situated as base to visit the moors and also head to Whitby and the sea.

September 2019

Beautiful place in a very quiet area. Awesome views from the gardens and owners who can’t do enough for you.

Incredible place – what experienced travellers look for yet rarely find – a place full of charm, history and character in a stunning location. Plus incredible owners who know how to make you feel at home.

August 2019

Very welcoming I would highly recommend Grove Hall. There is also a secure place to leave your motorbike. I will definitely be going back on my next visit to Whitby.

July 2019

Delightful stay in Numi and Charles’ house. Our hosts welcomed us warmly, with tea in the garden. The grounds and the house decorations were exactly to our taste – carefully thought-out and executed but with no rigidity; a real home. The room was very comfortable, with a great view onto the garden and, further away, the North York Moors steam railway. Breakfast to die for – both full English, for me, and a lighter version, based on fresh fruit and delicious crêpes, for my partner. Idealy situated for visiting Whitby, Robin Hood”s Bay and the villages in the North York Moors. A definite “must stay here again”.

July 2019

This was our 2nd time with Numi and Charles, we really appreciated there company, we really enjoyed our stay for 2 nights they are lovely and kind Hosts, the breakfast was brilliant, I couldn’t thank them enough for what they did for us, and we will definitely be returning again, I would recommend friends and family to come and stay with them.
