A Victorian baronial mansion skirting the North Yorkshire Moors and close to the sea, with breakfast, two-course dinner and cream tea

The Lowdown

Set in a stunning baronial mansion between the North Yorkshire Moors and the North East coast, Grinkle Park is an elegant boutique hotel surrounded by 35 acres of stately grounds and woodlands. It has all the class of an elegant Victorian country house, with its high-embossed ceilings and fine wooden panelling – made all the more cosy on chilly days by a roaring fire. Modern luxury has also made its home within the imposing stone walls, with newly refurbished bedrooms boasting beautiful modern furnishings and all your creature comforts.
Make like a lord or lady with dinner in the elegant fine dining restaurant, where you’ll find seasonal menus of locally sourced delights such as Whitby’s famous fresh fish. You can work up an appetite with a leisurely lakeside stroll or a run round the jogging trail. The lovely grounds have plenty of peace and quiet for travellers in search of a quiet break, while the haunting beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors beckons nearby. The charming country retreat picked up a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

A great venue to explre the North Yorks moors

Stayed here for 2 nights in Oct, very happy with the hotel. Very pleasant staff, our room was huge and very comfortable. All our meals were freshly prepared to a high standard (half board) and we found it to be very relaxing. The hotel may not suit averyone as it is an older property, but that's what we like ! We travelled to the coast as far down as Robin Hood Bay, a lovely place to visit, also Whitby, Staithes and Easington itself.

posh pub

very disappointed with the very ordinary meal and even poorer menu. half the wine list seemed to be unavailable. compared to meals that were formerly available at grinkle, it is now a shadow of its former self. its pub grub served at a sit up table. what a shame.

Afternoon tea for two
George F

First class afternoon tea for two a great choice of sandwiches a gorgeous plate of cream cakes and scones with cream and jam. Lovely surroundings gorgeous clean hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful old country house not far from the quant old fishing and Dracula town of Whitby one way fifteen minute drive from the world of heartbeat (old tv series about local police station) surrounded by lovely villages and the north ok shire moors. A fantastic Autumn day spent on the moors finished off with a lovely tea for two. A word of warning don't have anything to eat before going to Grinkle park for tea for two there really is quite a meal.
