Just perfect, absolutely lovely.
We stay in lots of cottages and this is definitely our favourite. The location is great, with all the amenities you need with Whitby being a gentle stroll along the river. The cottage is well equipped and finished to a high standard. The extra touches left by the owners were really appreciated and made our stay extra special. We sat outside and had breakfast in the garden and struggled to leave the cottage to go out and explore. I could not recommend this cottage higher, we will be definitely be returning. PS the Butchers across the road is the best ever. Thanks for a perfect holiday.
Thank you for your glowing review.
We are very happy that you had a good time.
And always happy to see you again.
This is a beautiful cosy cottage! It has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished to make it a lovely comfortable home from home. I would highly recommend and will hopefully stay there again myself.
The walks into Whitby were delightful. Cottage was fine, although small. Well equipped. A warning about the absence of mobile phone coverage would have been helpful, especially over Christmas, as I could then have made other arrangements.
lovely cottage much thought gone into decor and garden
Really enjoyed our stay in Ruswarp Everything you need in cottage, and interior is lovely
Nice touch of prosecco and cholates on arrival , and seaside themed decor throughout. Only 20 min walk to Whitby, or 5 mins train. You can even catch a NYMR steam train from Ruswarp.
Area great for coastal and rural walks.
Only slight negative is availability of parking and there is some traffic noise as cottage is on busy road
Lovely stay in Ruswarp! The cottage was beautiful and the extra touches were much appreciated. The walk into Whitby was lovely alongside the railway, I was able to do it with the pram too which was a bonus! Would definitely stay again!
