    “Great accommodation, wonderful location”
    We stayed in the Ticket office for a week at the end of August and we had a wonderful time. The location of the property is brilliant and we never got tired of seeing the trains go past. It is a quick 3 minute train ride away from Whitby, or a 20 minute walk if you are feeling a little more active. ...
    We stayed in the Ticket office for a week at the end of August and we had a wonderful time. The location of the property is brilliant and we never got tired of seeing the trains go past. It is a quick 3 minute train ride away from Whitby, or a 20 minute walk if you are feeling a little more active. The downstairs of the property is very comfortable, but the upstairs rooms are sitting in the eves and therefore have sloping ceilings that may not be suitable for particularly tall people. The spiral staircase may also cause issues to anyone who isn't confident with heights but is very secure. We would definitely book this property again as we were very comfortable and everything was immaculate.

A spiral staircase leads up to a cabin-style bedroom and shower room, tucked into the eaves of the building.

Decorated and maintained to a high standard, this Ruswarp cottage provides a comfortable holiday home with steam trains passing the door and excellent village amenities, including a good butcher's, a local shop and a pub serving real ale and good food.
