“Perfect for our first family holiday with our newborn and woof!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

We stayed here in Jasmine Cottage back in October 2011. Our newborn son was 3 months old, and we also had a daft springer spaniel just over a year old, and we wanted somewhere nice and quiet away from all the hustle and bustle of the town.

Our cottage was immaculate, clean and spacous, with a lovely view of the River Esk and the railway, providing an ideal spot to wave to the steam trains going by! Wildlife in abundance, and we even got sunshine!

With family being from Whitby we needed no introduction, but they provide each cottage with plenty of local information including handy numbers for local doctors etc.

Lovely family owned properties, we had such a nice welcome from all.

Our only 'complaint' was that the bed was a double and not a kingsize. My hubby being over 6 foot 2 he struggled to get comfy during the stay, but we were assured this is being looked into, and they are replacing doubles for kingsizes soon. So that is good enough for us!
Will definately be back, and have recommended to family and friends - although on two occasions they have been fully booked - but this just proves our recommendation was spot on!

Room Tip: Jasmine Cottage is the first cottage in the row (apart from Boat Loft which is set out on its own) a...

These cottages were taken over by new management in early 2011 and Neil & Jeanette have really pulled the stops out to make these exclusive contemporay and comfortable with new furnishings & fittings. It is located on the river bank of the River Esk facing south and and there is abundant wild life. On the opposite bank is the rail line for the steam locomotives from Grosmont to Whitby which is fabulous. There are a selection of cottages for varying numbers and we stayed in the Boat Loft which accoommodates one couple in an open plan layout with private bathroom. There is a shower & lovely deep bath so take candles and lots of bath products. There is a DVD player and free Wi-Fi. It is very peacefull & private . They provide slippers, bathrobes and plastic glasses for thee jaccuzi. Every thing is immaculate and very clean. It takes about 40 mins to walk into Whitby. A taxi into Whitby costs £6. We had a fantastic stay and would highly reccomend this for a romantic get away.

We stayed here for New Year's Eve and had an amazing time. The accommodation is immaculate, the location perfect and the hospitality shown to us by Neil and Jeanette was just brilliant. We couldn't fault anything and would definitely recommend this resort to anybody wanting a luxurious place to stay in a beautiful countryside setting.

Had a brilliant stay here with family and friends, cottages are spotless and have everything you need. In a lovely location with only a 20-25 minute walk in to Whitby. The Bridge Inn Pub just a short walk away is friendly and serves good pub grub. Would definitely return to this complex.

We have just returned from a lovely stay in the clematis cottage and we can't wait to return. The cottage was clean and had been refurbished to a high standard, with everything you could possibly need. We found it difficult to try and fault it, but the only thing was it can be a little cold at first due to the high ceilings, but was fine once warmed up. Overall well worth a visit for a lovely tranquil break.

My daughter and I have just returned from one night stay at the Boat Loft. The only bad thing I can say about our stay is we should have stayed much longer. Everything in the Boat Loft was sparkling. Not a speck of dirt to be found anywhere. We loved the hot tub, even in November, still visit. On the evening of our visit it was very windy but we were nice and snug in the hot tub, we were in there all evening. The central heating was fabulous, not cold at all. The books about what a husband and wife should do to have a fantastic marriage were very amusing, nice touch.
It is a very lovely place to stay, would love to visit in summer and for longer to see more of the surrounding areas. I can really highly reccomend a visit to the Boat Loft well worth every penny.

We stayed in Honeysuckle which is a small cottage for two people, the cottage was spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard. We had our dog with us as some of these cottages are dog friendly which is excellent. The view from the patio was outstanding, looking straight on to the river with steam trains passing by. Also ducks greet you every morning passing patio window.

Relaxing in the cottage in the evening was great, seating very comfortable and cottage very cosy.

Whitby is 45 minute leisurely walk away or public transport is within easy reach in Ruswarp village, the village has a homely local pub which is also dog friendly in the bar area and the meals were very tasty and good value for money.

I would definitely stay here again, next time in the summer so that we can get full use of the lovely patio area.
