  • "Grove Cottage is very comfortable, well equipped and fairly modern holiday accommodation."

    It is in a quiet spot- a small holiday accommodation development not far from the river. Whilst a short distance outside Whitby, it is not so far to walk along the cinder path or 5 mins in the car. Having free onsite parking at the property is a boon, especially for Whitby where parking places are at a premium and car parks are reasonably expensive. Whitby is a great place, plenty to see and do and some good places to eat. We would not hesitate to recommend Grove Cottage.

  • "We found the property easily with the instructions, it is actually slightly closer to Whitby than Google maps says."

    We’ve stayed in several places in Whitby, I thought this would be a little far out but it really wasn’t, location is great and it’s really handy having the parking, which is essential for us. Had lovely views from both the front and rear of the house. Comfortable seating and beds with handy built in wardrobes. The bathroom and downstairs loo were clean and roomy. Had a good shower, you go to some holiday cottages and the shower is just a trickle! It’s less than a 10 minute walk to the pub in Ruswarp, which has nice food and a beer garden. It’s lovely and quiet in the evenings. The kitchen is well equipped, handy having a washing machine and dish washer. The only slight negatives I would say is they need to clean the upstairs balcony, the wood is green and is slippy and get some better seating up there, the metal seats are peeling and the feet are too narrow for the wooden slats, we didn’t use it at all. Also a latch on that door as if you are sleeping in that room you either have to have the door shut or all the way open. Also in that room we had a huge king size winter duvet in a double duvet cover, it was so lumpy and uncomfortable and had to buy ourselves a blanket to use as it wasn’t fit for purpose. They also need to buy a wooden spoon, very difficult to cook with the flimsy plastic utensils. We had a very pleasant stay and would recommend the location to others. .

  • "Grove Cottage is in a great location about 20 mins walk along the Cinder Path to Whitby or a couple of hours walk to Robin Hoods Bay."

    The woods nearby are good to explore we saw a woodpecker and deer. The accommodation has everything you could need for a home from home. We had a lovely afternoon tea at the willow branch café enjoyed fish and chips at Hetty & Bettys and we always pay a visit to the White House restaurant which serves a fab Sunday Lunch. There's a sainsburys supermarket a few mins drive away.

    Parking directly outside for both cars. We didn’t walk into Whitby although you could go on cinder track along the Viaduct approx 30 mins, which looked a nice walk. Would go again and would recommend to anyone, peaceful and relaxing. We really enjoyed this Goth weekend at Whitby lots of fantastic costumes and nice atmosphere.

  • "We have just returned from our stay at Grove Cottage which was a wonderful family holiday."

    The cottage was a true home from home experience and It's location next to the viaduct provided wonderful views. All facilities were as described and it really felt like you were staying at a friends holiday home being told to use what you want but just replace if things run out. The owners got in touch a couple of days before we arrived to confirm details and then rang on arrival day to make sure we were ok and had everything we required. Next time we return to Whitby we will certainly look to see if we can get back in.

The property

Whitby 1 mile.

A delightful, modern mid-terrace mews property in a small development, overlooking the River Esk and the Ruswarp Viaduct just over one mile walk from the centre of Whitby.

Perfect for families wanting to explore the North York Moors and seaside resorts, this Whitby cottage provides an ideal base.

With bright and comfortable accommodation, there is a contemporary living area with a spacious kitchen and dining area.

French doors open from the well-equipped kitchen onto a sunny, south-facing decked private patio.

On the first floor the double bedroom offers a decked balcony with fine views over towards the viaduct and River Esk where the steam train passes along the riverside.

Tastefully furnished and decorated, this lovely cottage has off road parking, whilst the communal grounds lead down to the river banks, where you are likely to see herons, ducks and the odd kingfisher.

Seals also regularly swim up this stretch of the tidal estuary.

There is also a private patio where you can sit and relax whilst planning your next day’s excursion.

Despite being only a 20 minute walk along the cinder track into the centre of Whitby, this is a tranquil spot and offers a peaceful environment after a busy day enjoying the bustle of the narrow, cobbled streets of Whitby.

There are many memorable cafes, restaurants and bistros and the holiday can be rounded off with a trip to the famous fish and chip shops which line the harbour.

Walk the extensive sands to Sandsend to the north or tackle the 199 steps up to the majestic abbey which towers above the town.

The more adventurous may opt for a fishing trip or you may care to try whale-watching in season as Minke whales are regularly sighted just off the coast.

The North York Moors are on the doorstep and the pretty coastal villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood’s Bay are a short drive away.

Scarborough and Saltburn are within easy reach and the more energetic guests will surely try stretches of the Cleveland Way which hugs the rugged coastline.

This cottage is perfectly placed to take full advantage of this ever-popular resort.
