“Family holiday”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A lovely property with lots of character & original features. 2 large sitting rooms, dinning room, a well equipped kitchen/utility room & 5 bedrooms plus two garden areas. Went as a family group 0f 11 (3 generations from young baby to pensioner) & everyone enjoyed the stay. End of season but still boating, miniature train & soft play in village. Short walk along footpath into Whitby & access from garden to platform to watch the steam trains pass....

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed here as a Ruby Wedding celebration with our family including our baby grandson. Everyone agreed it was the best equipped place we had stayed in. The trains were an unusual and most enjoyable experience and we were able to welcome part of our family from London on the platform. Would love to return

“Birthday get-together”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Lovely large house suitable for large groups, very clean and well stocked with everything you
may need during your stay. The trains stop right outside your door and while we were
there the Santa Express stopped, which was lovely. Easy access into Whitby and surrounding area. There is a pub across the road but unfortuneatly they weren't serving
food whle we were there. There is also a very good butcher just down the road which also
serves bread, cakes, cold meats etc. Would definitely stay here again.

“A wonderful cottage in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 1 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just had a fantastic week in this amazing cottage. Steam trains and heritage diesels going past the front of the house had us running to the platform to wave, and even the Northern Rail scheduled service stirred quite a lot of interest in the children (Ok, and me).

Ruswarp is a lovely village, with a top class butcher / deli, great pub right across the road (easy to duck out and see the steam engines from there too, you get the idea!), excellent miniature railway, café, river, ducks. Really easy walk to Whitby - 20 minutes down the side of the river / railway line, or Northern Rail or regular buses.

The house really is big enough for an extended family, with two lounges, two en suite bedrooms, a bathroom and spare shower room, an Aga and conventional hob, huge utility room, two fridges and lots of space, and most windows overlooking the platform to make it easier to see the trains. As you might have guessed, that was my main reason for booking the cottage, but the property in itself was fantastic.

Whitby is lovely - very scenic and atmospheric, with loads to do.

We're coming back!

We are delighted to hear that you had such a lovely time in Ruswarp and could enjoy the sight of the trains from your own doorstep! It sounds like you found some great spots to eat and enjoyed the local area as well as Whitby nearby. We hope you will book with us again soon!

This is a lovely home that is kept immaculately...unfortunately if you are vacationing with a few under 10 year olds its impractical...the stated 20 minute walk into whitby is only to the local car park. .its actually40 minute's into actual whitby bay area....there is also an early morning wake up call from the cement works which is directly behind the house 7:00 until 6:30 ever other evening The noise continues throughout the day....overall possibly a more suitable rental for a large group of adults...certainly not the family and animal friendly property advertised...kirsty torkington...family member visiting.

“unsuitable for families with young children”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

although this is a lovely house, it is full of far too many expensive ornaments to be child friendly, the downstairs shower door and en suite bathroom door did not shut properly, the walk to the beach at Whitby took us a good 40 mins, although you can get to the town car park in 20 mins. there is also a concrete block manufacturing works which backs onto the garden, which is quite noisy. if you want a holiday where the house is the main attraction then this is for you, but for a base for a family seaside holiday I would not recommend it
