  • "Great holiday cottage, only one very small issue was we lost tv signal for 2 or 3 mins twice during the week, just a minor inconvience."

  • "Excellent Property situated alongside the ‘Cinder Track’ which enabled us to leave the Car & walk into Whitby, Ruswarp (where there is a superb Butchers & Riverside Cafe) & access the Costal Path."

    Property was very clean & everything worked. Nice to sit on the Balcony & enjoy the views of the Viaduct which carries the Cinder path across the River Esk. Would definitely visit again. Car parking was not clearly marked out or controlled was a minor observation but we had no problems during our stay,

  • "Smart property with all mod cons in a new development near the river Esk in quiet surroundings."

    It is near the Cinder Track viaduct (old railway track) whereby you can walk into Whitby in about 15 minutes, or the other way 5 miles to Robin Hoods Bay. Whitby itself and the whole coastal area is lovely, and you have the North York Moors nearby.

  • "A very well equipped property which was very easy to settle in to."

    The description of the property was totally accurate. Some lovely walks straight from the front door and only 5 minutes by car to the centre of Whitby. Child friendly as there is a communal grassed area at the rear of the property where all the children staying in the residences played very nicely with each other. Would book again with no hesitation in recommending to other Sykes clients. Service from Sykes all through the process excellent as usual.

  • "Very nice, comfortable cottage."

    Bigger inside than expected. Super clean and all home comforts you’d need. Having the balcony was an added bonus. Really peaceful area. Although not a fan of communal gardens it was good for children to make friends and you do have your own designated area. Very dog friendly which was appreciated (our dog had a lovely time). Other feedback - couldn’t get bedroom TV channels to work (wasn’t overly bothered though) and an extra bin liner would be handy. Would def book again!

  • "Location of cottage is excellent."

    About 20 mins walk into Whitby, along a well used and maintained cinder track. It is part of a small private development of self catering cottages. Cottage very warm and well equipped, although it would have been nice to have had a DVD player, as listed, as we had a couple of days of inclement weather.

  • "This is a lovely comfortable Cottage."

    It had been newly decorated and felt very fresh and clean.A group of us and our dog had a lovely Christmas stay here.There are three warm and comfortable bedrooms on the second floor,with a nice toilet / bathroom.There is a another toilet downstairs too.The Kitchen is spacious with a dining area and is very well equipped.Waddleduck is about a half an hours very pleasant walk from the centre of Whitby. If you fancy a change from Whitby,you can stroll down to The Bridge Inn at Ruswarp.This takes about twenty-five minutes and we would thoroughly recommend this as you'll get a warm welcome,and they serve excellent food and beers.The owner of the Cottage,Mrs. Bowles was very helpful and sent us some chocolates and a bottle of wine,on our arrival.We would certainly stay here again.Thank you John Clough.

A lovely, mid-terrace mews property, set in a small development above the River Esk, one mile from Whitby.

Offering light, spacious open plan living, this Whitby cottage has been furnished and decorated in a contemporary style, providing very comfortable accommodation.

From the rear patio of this Whitby cottage are fine views over rolling countryside, whilst the balcony off the double bedroom affords river views and glimpses of the passing steam trains!

For nature lovers staying in this Whitby cottage, a meander down to the river banks brings you to an abundance of wildlife, including kingfishers and seals that are frequently seen swimming upstream.

Ideally placed, a pleasant walk from this Whitby cottage brings you into this vibrant old seaside town, with its quaint cobbled streets and ginnels, famous abbey and historic harbour.

Explore the long, sandy beaches, take a bracing cliff-top walk, or sample the numerous eateries, including the best of fish and chips!

Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the North York Moors and pretty inland villages and market towns such as Pickering, Malton and Danby, this Whitby cottage is well placed, with a wealth of activities in the area to enjoy, from a nostalgic trip on the steam railway to a cultural day out in York.

About the location


Robin Hood's Bay 5.5 miles; Scarborough 19.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles; Guisborough 21.5 miles.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, the local area hosts an array of activities so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast. From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for everyone. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close. Climb the famous 199 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy reach of the bustling towns of Scarborough and Middlesbrough, Whitby is a prime location for exploring all of the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.
