Grosmont House – Retreat in the North Yorkshire Moors, UK


“In matters of healing the body or the mind, vacation is a true genius!”

– Mehmet Murat Ildan

There is a place where being “home” from home is not only a word but a real expression of the soul.

A place where the time seems to stand still and we are able to breathe again. Breathing in the fresh air of untouched landscapes and merge with the heart of deep devotion for inner peace and tranquility. The North Yorkshire National Park not only offers peace, space and quiet but also something we might have forgotten about in our rat race against the time.

The everlasting moment of true beauty and belonging can be found in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors.

This might has been the reason why Selma and Chris decided to buy Grosmont House a gorgeous Bed and Breakfast in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors. Only within a few months Selma and Chris formed the existing B&B into an inviting, warm-hearted and welcoming space of “Home” from home.


Filled with light and love the Grosmont house sparkles together with its owners and invites the guests for an unforgettable stay in the North Yorkshire Moors. Just next to the famous Grosmont train station from which the guests can go on a Steam train journey around the Moors. The Grosmont Steam train experience is something totally unique and special that booking in advance is very much recommended.

But not only Steam train fans but also hiker, walker and people who are looking for a break from the busy everyday life will enjoy a stay in Grosmont.




Grosmont House offers six rooms (2 double, 2 kingsize, 1 single, 1 twin) that have been beautifully renovated. In addition to that there are 2 self-catering cottages with two bedrooms each from which you are able to see the Steam train.

Selma has been a cook/caterer for many years and is very ambitious about providing not only a delicious but also a sustainable breakfast for their guests. Only locally sourced and produced products will find their way onto the breakfast table in Grosmont House.

There is a nice variety from the traditional fully English to the vegetarian and more healthy option. Everyone will find what they have been looking for.


Within yourself there is a stillness, a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time by yourself.”

Herman Hesse
