    “Holmlea was a wonderful homely place to stay.”

    Excellent quality fixtures and fittings with spotlights throughout and nice touches such as light up mirrors. Comfortable beds and great rainfall shower. The garden was well kept and a good size for our daughter to play in. A few small issues such as no fire lighter to light the log burner with and could have done with some extras such as a basket and more pegs for hanging washing outside as well as an airer for indoor drying.

    Excellent quality fixtures and fittings with spotlights throughout and nice touches such as light up mirrors. Comfortable beds and great rainfall shower. The garden was well kept and a good size for our daughter to play in. A few small issues such as no fire lighter to light the log burner with and could have done with some extras such as a basket and more pegs for hanging washing outside as well as an airer for indoor drying. The kitchen didn't match the modern feeling of the other rooms; had lots of utensils but could do with a few things replacing. Our biggest issue was the fridge- we saw other reviews saying it was small so we tried to pack lightly but, as a shielding family, we wanted to be fully self catering so ended up bringing lots of canned goods. If the fridge could be replaced for a standard under the counter size that would really help particularly with the house being able to accommodate 4 adults. Due to the shielding aspect we arrived a day later than our start day and therefore asked for the owner to be informed to take their time with cleaning. I always do my own touchpoint cleaning for peace of mind but we were disappointed to find hairs in bedroom drawers and wardrobes. Some of the kitchen drawers could have done with a bit of attention also. We thought that arriving 24 hours late would have allowed the perfect opportunity to do some extra cleaning that there isn't time for on a normal turnaround. Owner was very helpful when we asked about bike storage and kindly left the garage key. Holmlea was still very cosy despite lots of things having to be removed due to Covid. Great location with lots of amenities locally- highly recommend the Bothams bakery at Sleights and the fish and chip shop. Pizza shop from Whitby did a contact free delivery to our door and the pub next door served up some lovely takeaways for us. The issues we experienced would certainly not deter us from coming again and it is very difficult for us to find somewhere that we want to come back to! Overall, a well cared for property and you really felt like you could settle in!

About the location

RUSWARP

Whitby 1.5 miles; Robin Hood's Bay 6 miles.

Situated just 1.5 miles inland from Whitby, the small village of Ruswarp lies on the River Esk, with old stone cottages lining the main street. Ruswarp has excellent amenities, including a local pub with hand-pulled real ales, a village shop and a renowned local butcher. The Esk Valley Walk runs through the village, and it is an easy 25 minute walk to the centre of Whitby. Ruswarp has a regular bus service, and the single track railway has regular steam trains running through! Enjoy an hour’s boating on the river, take a ride on the miniature train, feed the local ducks, or enjoy a snack at the tea room. A perfect location for exploring the surrounding coastline and the dramatic North York Moors.
