  • “A brilliant location in a lovely friendly village, with the bonus of trains outside your window!”

    ...

    We booked this house for a family holiday for 7 adults and two dogs. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The layout is fun, lots of space to spread out. There's an easy, level walk into the centre of Whitby from outside the house along the gorgeous Esk valley, between the river and the railway. (It's more like 30 minutes than 20). Ruswarp is delightful, don't miss the rowing boats, Jackson's the butcher and the little village shop. And the ladies we spoke to about the key etc were really friendly and welcoming. Minor things we didn't spot before we booked (might be important to someone else). --*Parking is tight and you share it with visitors to the little rental next door. *The only outside space is two paved courtyard areas, partly shaded, but very secure and private. *And I'm afraid I have to agree with other reviewers about the four poster. It was quite hard. Everyone else said their beds were really comfy though. Finally, don't let the thought of trains passing outside the window put you off, the house was surprisingly quiet. They're mostly gone before you notice. However the steam trains do exactly what you'd expect: there's a lot of steam and puffing and it's brilliant.
