Groves Hall Bed and Breakfast
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.
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.
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
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. Thank you Numi and Charles for making our first trip here special x
Just got back from a fabulous weekend away at groves Hall, Numi and Charles are lovely and made us feel so welcome, the house is stunning and clean, spacious and beautifully decorated, the gardens are spectacular along with the views, breakfasts here are the best! It’s just the perfect place to visit and will be recommending this place to my family and friends. Thank you Numi and Charles for making our first visit memorable and will definitely be returning x
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 😎
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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!
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.
Balm for the soul and a feast for the eyes! Perfect host,delightful views and quirky setting.
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
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.
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
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!
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
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.
Beautiful place in a very quiet area. Awesome views from the gardens and owners who can’t do enough for you.
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.
Visited last year and wanted to return. Lovely hosts. Relaxing breakfast in the beautiful garden.
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!
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.
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.
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”.
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.
Only one word to describe our stay and that is EXCELLENT.
