    “Beautiful cottage, the wine and cake on arrival a nice touch.”

    Loved the AGA. Had a beautiful meal in the Bridge Inn just down the road, and a pleasant walk into Whitby. Would love to go back.

The property

Resting on the main road in the small village of Ruswarp is this charm-filled semi-detached cottage.

With the coastal town of Whitby just a gentle river stroll away, this lovely getaway is ideal for those wishing to explore the North York Moors National Park and the North Yorkshire coastline.

The refurbished interior oozes style and and warmth throughout.

The cosy lounge is where you can snuggle up with your loved ones in front of the woodburning stove, with the pleasant colour schemes uplifting your mood.

Cook up a hearty breakfast each morning for all the family, before you step out for a rejuvenating walk along the Esk Valley.

The farmhouse-style kitchen offers a fabulous AGA cooker and contemporary shades of grey and white by Farrow and Ball and statement worktops by London Clay & Skimming Stones, making you feel right at home.

Eat together at the dining table set beside the dual-aspect windows and exchange amusing stories with one another over delicious food.

A porthole looks out into the garden at the rear, where you can sit and enjoy alfresco dining on a balmy afternoon.

Three bedrooms rest on the first floor, elegantly put together with a modern bathroom assisting you day and night.

Up in the loft is the perfect hideaway for the kids to enjoy; resting under the apex roof are two cosy single beds in a cooling shade of blue.

Discover this quiet town, with miniature train rides, a tea room and local pub selling real ales.

Next, explore Whitby town centre, its castle and safe sandy beaches.

The beautiful coastline and dramatic moors of the National Park are not to be missed!
