    Great garden for our puppy, she loved it. Everything we needed was provided. Furniture was very comfortable as where the beds. One of the best places we have stayed in, would recommend. Would definitely love to stay again.

    Beautifully furnished cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay. From the tea and biscuits to the milk in the fridge was a very welcome surprise.

  • "My one and only criticism is with the WiFi."

    The WiFi extender in the hallway regularly loses the connection to the hub and so connection in the main bedroom is poor at best. This really is my only criticism. My wife, son and I have stayed three times now, for a week each time and absolutely love the cottage.

    The shower is amazing! Comfy bed and comfy sofa. Hosts left some lovely tea and biscuits for us. There is a booklet full of information about the local area and places of interest.. even a bus timetable. Another great touch was the parking disk which comes in really handy. This was our second stay, we will definitely be back.. hopefully in the summer so we can enjoy the lovely garden. Thank you so much for a enjoyable stay. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This property was recommended to me by two of my friends who are regular visitors. We found it very comfortable and clean and everything you need is there and its also nice to have parking straight outside your door. We found it very handy for travelling to the nearby coast and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

    Ruswarp village is so narrow & twisting.

  • "This is the nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in."

    Beautifully maintained and exceptionally comfortable. The only criticisms I could make (and I wouldn't really call them criticisms) is that the bed is a little soft for me, leading to a bit of a backache, and the smart TV is exceptionally slow on the online viewing. Neither of these things detract from the overall pleasure of staying here.

  • "Our experience of the cottage was very positive."

    Greatly appreciated the welcome pack & the treat for our dog. Well equipped kitchen, appliances easy to use. There is a decent size bathroom & shower which helped my elderly mother using it. The garden was ideal for us & the dog. The road is busy but we got used to it and it didn't affect our sleep. Just one little thing to point out, be careful when opening the front door as inside there is a step up which if you're not looking you could trip up on it. Also take a hairdryer as one might have been hidden somewhere but we couldn't find it. Nina & Sam though were very friendly, helpful who called round to help us with a query we had. A 5 minute walk from the cottage is Beacon farm tea rooms the ice cream & food is tasty. The Wilson arms opens at 6pm, its reasonably priced for drinks & meals. It is a really popular pub, dog friendly too. A trip to Goathland where heartbeat was filmed is a lovely place to visit, as well as Staithes. Ruswarp is the next village to Sneaton which you can hire boats to row on the river. the steam train goes past to. There is Jacksons the butchers their meats, pastries are gorgeous. We had drinks in Bridge Inn that opens during the day also dog friendly too. Pickering is well worth a visit, plenty of shops, cafes and a lovely fish n chip shop which the food was gorgeous. Definitely would recommend a stay at this lovely cottage.

  • "Lovely little cottage with plenty of room and a nice secure garden, which is a good sun trap and great for drying washing on fine days."

    Very well placed for exploring the area. Good parking spot outside the front door beyond a small gated forecourt, the gate was extra safety for the dog. Complimentary tea and biscuits welcomed us. Two televisions, but we only used one. Good freeview, but someone had added a PIN so we couldn't see the guide. There is wi-fi in the front part of the house but it's patchy and unstable. The booster routers seemed to be out of date. We could connect but there was no internet. 5G phone worked in the bedroom, on its own connection, but not the 4G phone or the 3G devices, so the mobile signal is poor the deeper into the house you go and the wi-fi non-existant. The bed, by the way, is very soft and we both came away with bad backs. We had to clean the kitchen before we could use it along with quite a few crocks that had been simply rinsed and put in the cupboards wet. Someone had previously spilled coffee or tea and it had gone under the counter and all over the fridge, and left. We had to wash the dining table too as it was sticky. Also, fake grass isn't particularly hygienic when there are dogs. It's on a working farm, so expect flies and take fly spray. One hand towel each, one bath towel each, and one tea towel between us for the week. As there were only two of us, we did pinch towels from the twin room. We were able to wash things, but only able to dry them when the weather was fine. Great washing machine. We had a nice, quiet, relaxing break and when we saw the neighbour, she was friendly enough.

    From the outside it looks small but what a surprise when you go in - spacious but with a lovely cosy feeling. Lovely welcome - our dog was very impressed with his welcome pack. It had everything we needed and was very clean. The enclosed garden was fantastic and so safe for pets and children. The location was perfect for us, for going into Whitby or Sandsend and the local walks afforded fabulous views. Pub a hop and a skip away. We had a lovely stay and can’t wait to go back.

  • "This property is absolutely delightful."

    It looks small when you first see the front but it is like a TARDIS. It goes a long way back. Garden is very private and has artificial grass so, should you have rain, it dries very quickly. Pub just 5 minutes walk away serves excellent food, bit pricey but well worth it. Very short journey into the lovely town of Whitby. We loved our winter stay so much we booked a week in September while we were still there.

    The cottage's enclosed garden behind is quiet and totally secure for animals (and children!). Beautifully cared for, it made for a relaxing and comfortable holiday within easy reach of bustling Whitby (own transport necessary). A local 'honesty stall' in the village provides eggs, and vegetables straight from the local fields...delicious!

    It was a shame that the garden had been replaced with Astroturf but it was enjoyable sitting out at night with the sun on the patio until the early evening. The cottage is on a busy road but the bedrooms are at the back so there is no noise disturbance. The kitchen was not very well equipped with no baking trays for the oven and minimal crockery and a very noisy fridge but it was very clean and comfortable. It is in a fantastic location to explore the North Yorkshire coast and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family and would stay again if in the area.

The pub 10 minutes away Wilson Arms was undergoing a bit of building work but thankfully was still open and the food was exceptional BUT it doesn't open until 6pm and make sure you check it is actually open (was shut on Monday when we were there frustratingly even though I'd checked in the afternoon!)

    Immaculately clean, well stocked kitchen with all the utensils, pots,pans crockery even down to clothes washing liquid. Couldn't fault this beautiful cottage. Ideal location as only 2 miles from the hubbub of Whitby - The Wilson Arms pub within walking distance and very good generous portion size meals - staff very friendly. Beaches fantastic and dogs are allowed on designated areas which was ideal for us. Loved Robin Hood Bay and Staithes - both unspoilt fishing villages. Runswick Bay also a lovely big beach dogs allowed too. Sandsend beach also brilliant as there is a cafe/toilets and it's very picturesque with the river running into the sea. Loads of walks to do. Absolutely stunning area with very friendly people wherever we went. Would thoroughly recommend Raygill without a doubt. Well done to the owners!

    A lovely touch and were pleasantly surprised that the cottage had undergone lovely modifications to the bathroom and garden. The cottage was also a good size extending backwards . We were pleased that the owners had thought about the little details of importance like a washing machine, washing line, pegs etc… a godsend when we were travelling with a baby. The owner very thoughtfully provided a lovely high chair and a very comfortable travel cot. However, the cottage failed to meet the following expectations: We chose this cottage as it had WIFI however the WIFI was dreadful and we had to use out own data. This was disappointing. The beds were also slightly uncomfortable in that the sheets smelt musty. It did feel a little unclean unfortunately. Also all the beds have wooden ends that stick out (such an awful design) and we all received multiple bruises banging our legs into them. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely come back if WIFI and beds were sorted. Thank you

The property

This pretty, stone cottage lies in the sleepy village of Sneaton, just two miles from the popular seaside town of Whitby.

Well-maintained and thoroughly furnished, it is ideal for families wishing to enjoy the beautiful mix of moorland and coast, in a wonderful part of North Yorkshire.

Offering all ground floor accommodation, you enter into a cosy and welcoming sitting room, with an electric imitation woodburner for ambience and a dining area to the rear.

The modern, well-equipped kitchen is bright and cheerful, enabling you to cater for everyone, while the two attractive bedrooms and shower room are just along the hallway.

Outside a small, enclosed courtyard garden is a lovely suntrap - a peaceful spot to sit and relax with a glass of wine, after a busy day out exploring.

Conveniently situated, a five-minute walk along the lane brings you to the local pub serving food, a real bonus if you don't feel like cooking.

Also nearby, Beacon Farm Ice Cream Farm and Tea Rooms is sure to be a big hit with everyone!

The immediate area has a superb network of public footpaths, including the ancient monks trod, that led the monks to Whitby Abbey in days gone by.

Cyclists are also well catered for, with the surrounding challenging terrain.

Just a few minutes' drive brings you to Whitby, with its long sandy beaches, quaint streets, alleyways and cobbled market square.

The town has much to offer, with restaurants, tea rooms, museums, pretty gardens in Pannett Park and an historic harbour.

Climb the 199 steps up to Whitby Abbey or take a bracing cliff top walk along the Cleveland Way.

For something a little different, why not book a night time ghost walk, or a whale watching trip?

From harbourside cocktail bars to famous fish and chips, it has something for everyone.

With the beautiful scenery of the North York Moors to discover nearby and numerous coastal and inland villages to visit, guests at Raygill Cottage are spoilt for choice.

About the location


Whitby 3 miles; Scarborough 21 miles.

The small rural village of Sneaton lies in an elevated position, just less than 3 miles from Whitby, and 21 miles from Scarborough.
