  • "From the first minute we arrived was greeted by unfriendly niehbours who did not like the fact we was just unpacking the luggage it was exactly the same when leaving the property."

    parking was a major problem as i am disabled and find it very difficult to walk any distance. the so called spar next door to the cottage was practically empty of any kind of groceries. this is not a property for disabled or elderly as the bathroom is as far away from the bedroom as you could imagine,so at night was a nightmare.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a quiet area just outside Whitby, easy walk to Whitby by the railway line and river or the train station is literally just down the road."

    Well equiped and really cosy, clean and comfortable. Despite previous reviews the parking was'nt a problem we unloaded at the side and parked just a little down the road round a corner and did'nt move the car again. Welcome basket and treats for the dogs made it just perfect. Thank you, we will be back

  • "The cottage was well equipped and clean and tidy but the parking was a nightmare."

    We had to park a long way from the cottage up a very steep hill. Definitely not suitable for an elderly couple. There was no mention in the adverts from Sykes that it was not suitable for elderly or disabled.

    We pleased to say we now have access to a private parking space. It is located close by, no need to park on the hill. Property Owner

  • "A very comfortable little dwelling, convenient to explore the local area."

    Parking is a bit of a problem but space is usually available nearby.

  • "While initially there was a bit of a stumbling block, Iain and Julie rushed to make everything right and were generous and gracious hosts."

    The cottage was the perfect place to stay for a special trip with my dog and we were not only comfortable but found it to be the perfect spot to explore the surrounding areas. The breakfast sandwiches next door were also excellent! We followed some wonderful suggestions from the owners which made our trip even more special. Thanks very much for everything and I look forward to possibly returning one day. All the best from Jori and Piper

    Overall a beautiful cottage, would highly recommend, welcome gifts on arrival which is a nice touch, only gripe I have is it should say there is a charge for dogs as it bumped my price up by £60,

  • "Property was as described and very comfortable."

    Some Prosecco and other goodies left for us which was a nice touch. Depending on when you arrive/depart you’ll either need to unload in the butchers car park or if that’s closed, in the side road but it is quite busy so you need to be quick. Once we parked up we used the train to get to Whitby or we walked in along the path that runs alongside the railway line (takes about 30 mins). Road outside it quite busy but we soon got used to it so it was no problem. I did feedback to the owners that a privacy curtain would be useful on the back door as you have to pass it to get from the bathroom to upstairs. There is a curtain on the front door. A lovely cottage in a lovely setting and a really good alternative in price to actually staying in Whitby.

  • "A fantastic little cottage, that had everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible, the owners communicated with us, to ensure we knew how to access the property and if we needed anything, they had left welcome packs with treats, even for the dog, going the extra mile, ensyred a great start to our holiday."

    Excellent service, will definately return.

  • "The property was lovely and just perfect for me and my husband and our two pooches."

    The owners thought of everything from treats for us to treats for the dogs. They even left bubble bath which I always forget. The main bedroom was lovely and quite quirky. The baby gate was handy for keeping the dogs from going upstairs or for keeping them in the kitchen at bedtime. Good enclosed garden but not suitable if your dog is a jumper, ours safely stayed within the garden and greeted everyone who went by. We took a big waterproof blanket for the living room as a preventative measure. The rug is cream so we found it was helpful at avoiding any marks on the rug. The owner also provided dog blankies which we found were useful for keeping things protected. We would stay again. Lovely walk to Whitby and lots to do in the surrounding areas.

    Thank you for the feedback. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will come again soon. Iain & Julie Property Owner

The property

Settled in the village of Ruswarp in North Yorkshire is this traditional, terraced 'Chomley Cottage'.

With a double bedroom sleeping two guests, this classic cottage has plenty of character throughout, while being close to amenities, the North York Moors National Park, and the picturesque coast.

You'll find a stone feature wall, exposed beams, and a plush, red corner sofa in the living/dining room as you enter, sure to be the social hub of your holiday.

Spend quality time together watching TV by the warmth of the electric fire and set the table to savour hearty meals.

The farmhouse kitchen is picturesque with a fabulous Rangemaster cooker to rustle up home cooking with ease.

After busy days exploring North Yorkshire's coast and country, unwind in the ground-floor bathroom with a freestanding bath, handheld shower, and a heated towel rail for added comfort.

The staircase leads up to the king-size bedroom, a beautiful space with exposed beams, antique furnishings, and a TV to catch your morning show under the sheets.

You'll be in the heart of Ruswarp, just on the edge of the North York Moors, where The Bridge Inn, Ruswarp Riverside Cafe, Ruswarp Pleasure Boats and Ruswarp Miniature Railway are situated.

Better still, being just across the road from the award winning local butchers, selling quality produce and the best breakfast sandwiches in the area, breakfast in bed can be effortless .

The River Esk is within walking distance from the cottage, perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding.

A garden centre is a short drive away.

The Train Station and bus stop with routes into Whitby or the countryside villages are within walking distance.

Off Road Parking now available, a short 2 minute flat walk from the property.

Pack your towels and beach essentials for a day in Whitby to relax on Whitby's golden sands, climb the 199 Steps for panoramic views, and admire the looming ruins of Whitby Abbey.

You'll also find Whitby Golf Club for a game or two with sea views, but if you're looking for a quintessential fishing village, be sure to visit Robin Hood's Bay.

This charming bay is a picture-postcard location, home to the National Trust's Old Coastguard Station, classic fish and chips takeaway, and curious cobbled streets to wander.

Further afield lies the bustling resort town of Scarborough and Filey, or perhaps you'd prefer walking or cycling through the North Riding Forest Park?

There are plenty of adventures to be had in the North York Moors, from religious ruins and timeless villages, to walking trails along rivers and through woodland.
