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.

Lovely setting
Reviewed 1 day ago

Having visited this hotel previously,had no complaints.This time very disappointed in the attitude of one male waiter on the 1st evening and breakfast , what a difference on the next evening and breakfast two ladies ,very welcoming and effective .For a hotel of this quality we would expect a more friendly service ,not to have staff with a could not care less attitude.
The reception staff were excellent.
Such a shame we will have to think again before returning.

Lovely hotel for a short break. Rooms are comfy and well appointed. The hotel grounds are amazing and well worth exploring. The hotel itself reflects its heritage; you feel you are a guest of a mansion house. The public rooms are full of character and I found the staff to be courteous and professional, yet friendly in their approach.

Second visit - still fabulous

Having stayed at Grinkle Park previously, I was keen to return. Full of character and charm with a great restaurant, it didn't disappoint.

The bedroom was a little smaller than previously and the bathroom could have maybe done with a little TLC and updating, but on the whole no complaints. Staff were helpful and attentive and the hotel itself is simply stunning. Would highly recommend.

Enjoyable Stay.

Just back from a one night stay,booked a deal through secret escapes. The Hotel stands in wonderful grounds and is in a great location for visiting the nearby coast. We stayed in the commondale room which was huge,with a large bathroom NB. shower is overbath (we did'nt have a problem)just a mention for the less agile ! The bed was super king and exceptionally comfy. I note someone commented their room was warm,we too found it warm but opened windows. The staff were super friendly and were eager to make our stay enjoyable. The dinner and breakfast were equally good and we made full use of the bar before and after dinner! My Daughter stayed in the Jenny Bradley room which i booked via the helpful staff as single occupancy and she too thoroughly enjoyed her stay. So Thankyou to all.

Booked as a DB&B deal on Secret Escapes. Allocated the Skylark room which was lovely and spacious giving us beautiful views of the grounds. A bottle of chilled fizz awaited our arrival as did two welcome cost dressing gowns. Dinner was served from 6.30 to 9.30 and was adequately good (although I should have left the chef my custard recipe!). Breakfast was also good. A star is deducted for very poor draught drink selection, a bar lacking in atmosphere and not being afforded a seat in the conservatory at brekky. Otherwise all good and would book such a deal again.
