    “We had to report the uncleanness of the refuse bins.”

    They were cram packed and were infested with maggots. We sorted out the bin for collection which was an ordeal.

    They were cram packed and were infested with maggots. We sorted out the bin for collection which was an ordeal. Secondly we reported the letterbox which was broken and badly in need of repair. Thirdly we reported the shower cubicle which came of the runners. The runners were gunged up and needed to be thoroughly cleaned.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry you had to experience maggots in the bin. We have contacted the Waste disposal company as we have experienced several such issues over the last few months unfortunately this is out of our control we have to rely on guests to put the bins out on the correct days and if this does not happen then we end up with such problems. Regarding the problem with the letter box and the shower these were addressed as a temporary measure and are being replaced by the owner. - Sykes owner relations

The property

A spacious beamed cottage with three bedrooms in the village of Ruswarp, one mile from Whitby, Yorkshire’s most beloved seaside town. Step inside this charming property and you’ll discover light-filled, welcoming rooms with bags of character.

Set over three floors, there is plenty of space for a family or three couples to relax together.

To the front is a pleasant south-facing terraced garden.

There is also storage for bikes, for those wishing to explore the area on two wheels.

Situated near a good local inn, tea rooms and a boating lake in Ruswarp village, Sunnyside makes a very pleasant base from which to discover beautiful North Yorkshire and its stunning coast and moors. An entrance hall with seating makes for a homely welcome.

From here, discover the good-sized sitting room with coal effect gas fire – lovely and cosy after a bracing ramble over the Moors - plus a TV/DVD for your entertainment. Catch up with family or friends over a meal at the oak table in the dining room.

A window seat, stove and beams make this a charming place to linger over a lazy breakfast or perhaps a leisurely supper, followed by a game of cards. The well-equipped kitchen includes an electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine and has a stable door into a small courtyard to the rear. And so to bed…there is a choice of two rooms to the first floor.

A light and airy king-size double, boasts a walk-in closet, decorative original fireplace and bedside lighting for those who like to read before bed.

Or, there’s a tranquil twin with full size 3’ white brass beds, bedside table and closet – so pretty. The immaculate house bathroom include a bath with shower over, basin and WC. The second floor is home to a gorgeous master double bedroom suite with en-suite shower room.

After a good night’s sleep in the comfortable bed, it’s lovely waking up in such a charming room with its polished wood floors and exposed beams.

An easy chair, bedside lamps and handy full-length mirror are nice touches. A lovely feature of Sunnyside cottage is undoubtedly its south-facing front terraced garden – it’s a real suntrap and, with table and chairs, makes a super place to catch a quiet moment.

Pretty potted plants add a splash of colour, whilst an evergreen Laurel hedge provides shelter and privacy. Ruswarp is a picturesque village situated on the banks of the river Esk – it’s possible to hire a rowing boat and explore the river at a leisurely pace.

The river is tidal to this point and seals swim up from the harbour and bask on the weir – an amazing sight.

Whilst village life is tranquil, the amenities, beach and the heritage of Whitby are just a five minute drive or twenty minute walk away. Sunnyside is sure to delight guests who are seeking an idyllic rural retreat close to the coast.
