About Us

Hi, we are Molly and John your hosts at Gramarye, we converted our home to accommodate guests around four years ago, starting with the two main house bedrooms and adding a third room in an annexe a year later. The house was built around 1900 as a home and sometime later was converted into a general store for the village, and then around twenty five years ago was converted back to a home. When we decided to open our home as a bed and breakfast we were determined to provide quality accommodation and service at a reasonable price close to Whitby.

We wanted to include all the good things we had experienced during our own travel and also were keen to avoid any of the negative things that had happened to us. We want our guests to enjoy their stay with us and our aim is to make everyone feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable.

Our previous jobs were in I.T. and retail in large businesses and we hope that we have brought our experience of service from that background with us into Gramarye. We know we are still learning every day and we love to look for ways to continue to improve our guests’ experience. We realise that this will continue while-ever we have the honour of hosting our guests at Gramarye.

The wild nature of the Yorkshire Moors and attractions such as the North Yorks Moors Railway and Heartbeat Country together with the attractions in Whitby just a couple of miles away, Gramarye is ideally placed to provide a base for your  visit to the area and we have strived to provide the accommodation, facilities, breakfast and level of comfort and quality to make your visit a memorable and enjoyable experience.
