    “The cottage was well equipped and ...”

    The cottage was well equipped and comfortable except that the beds were not to the standard one would expect. The double was the most comfortable with two of the singles very average and one single in urgent need of a replacement mattress. The location of the cottage is up a very steep track that older people could possibly negotiate so a car has to be used at all times to leave the cottage. This should be made clear in the advert. ...

    The cottage was well equipped and comfortable except that the beds were not to the standard one would expect. The double was the most comfortable with two of the singles very average and one single in urgent need of a replacement mattress. The location of the cottage is up a very steep track that older people could possibly negotiate so a car has to be used at all times to leave the cottage. This should be made clear in the advert. This said, we did enjoy the holiday immensely but would not visit this site again due to its hill top location.

The property

Ruswarp 0.5 miles.

A charming stone-built terraced cottage, in an elevated position above Ruswarp, surrounded by open countryside and close to Whitby.

One of eight holiday properties on a small site of barn conversions, Goathland Cottage is well placed for exploring both the magnificent surrounding countryside and the pretty coastal town of Whitby.

Set in a quiet, tranquil location in an acre of ground which provides a safe environment for children to play in, the cottage has a large open plan living area, with character beams and a stone feature fireplace with a gas woodburner-effect stove, perfect for cooler evenings.

The living area incorporates a contemporary, well-equipped kitchen and dining table, with a stable door opening onto a small gravelled patio with seating, ideal for relaxing on a balmy summer's day whilst enjoying the superb views towards the river.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, all boasting views over fields and hills.

The immediate area has a good network of public footpaths, with one leading from the doorstep, whilst a short stroll brings you into this popular village, with excellent facilities including a renowned butcher, village shop and a local pub serving food and real ale.

Enjoy a relaxed day rowing or salmon and trout fishing on the River Esk, or why not stop for afternoon tea in the riverside café?

Children will love a day beside the river feeding the ducks, or a ride on the miniature steam railway.

A five-minute drive brings you into the hustle and bustle of popular Whitby, with its sandy beaches, historic harbour and famous abbey.

Explore the cobbled market square and narrow ginnels, climb the 199 steps up to the abbey or enjoy a boat trip along the coastline, all before stopping for the famous fish and chips!

Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the North York Moors and close to the coast, this cottage provides an ideal base for a family holiday.
