Reverend Robert Skelton was the owner of the entire Levisham Estate and built Grove House. As the landowner he was later insistent on Levisham Station being built adjacent to Grove House rather than more conveniently serving the village further along the line. Skelton Cottage is converted from his original stables.
The cottage (left hand of the pair) is a cosy single storey dwelling normally sleeping 2:
• double bedroom (optional extra bedding for a sitting room sofa bed at extra charge)
• adjacent bathroom with double-ended bath, separate shower, toilet & basin
• fully equipped kitchen-diner including dishwasher & stunning views of the railway
• sitting room with wood burner, Freesat TV & railway views
• hallway & boot room
• private terrace & shared garden with table, seating & Weber barbecue
• plenty of parking
• space for 2 small behaved dogs
• WiFi & a reasonable 4G mobile phone signal on most networks
In addition to North Yorkshire Moors Railway the location offers expansive walks across the moors and through the woodland, meadows & hills of the magnificent Newtondale.
The spectacular heritage coast with such attractions as Staithes, Whitby & Robin Hoods Bay are only a short drive away.
