The Property

An interesting and imaginative conversion of a stone-built Victorian Grade II listed former ticket office, set in the centre of the bustling village of Ruswarp, 1.5 miles from Whitby. Offering quirky accommodation, this Ruswarp cottage provides a perfect hideaway for couples wanting to stay somewhere a little bit different!

Decorated and maintained to a high standard, this Ruswarp cottage provides a comfortable holiday home with steam trains passing the door and excellent village amenities, including a good butcher's, a local shop and a pub serving real ale and good food. With boating on the River Esk and a lovely waterside tea room, the locality has much to offer.

Mr Crane, Oldham, March 2014

We had such a magical holiday at The Ticket Office. A superb, enchanting little hideaway, which we absolutely adored. The location was perfect with a pub across the road, and a lovely little walk into Whitby's centre just across the platform, moments from the front door, along with the river flowing very close by, and a fantastic local butchers' and bakery within easy reach. We thought it to be an adorable, unique holiday property, something a little bit different, and quite special in its own homely, characterful way. We cannot thank the owners enough, as they had truly thought of everything to make our stay the relaxed getaway we were seeking! Just the Ticket (Office)!
