    “A lovely cottage in a very pleasant setting.”

    It was well equipped and comfortable. ...

    It was well equipped and comfortable. We felt the directions were a little vague as it said the entrance to the cottage road was opposite the miniature steam railway but by the time you could see the steam railway you had gone past the entrance. The garden was pleasant to sit in but would be improved by there being a more solid separation between Goathland cottage and Danby Cottage giving more privacy. Perhaps some climbing plants up the trellis? It would be nice to have had a spare toilet roll as 4 of us quickly got through the one that was there and a dishwasher tablet for every day of our stay would have been good. However we had a good holiday in Danby Cottage and would happily stay there again.

The property

Ruswarp 0.5 miles.

An attractive stone terraced cottage, in an elevated position, above Ruswarp village near Whitby.

One of eight, in a small development of converted barns, the cottage is ideal for families wanting to enjoy the peaceful location, but be within five minute’s drive to the centre of Whitby seaside town.

There is a spacious open plan living area, comfortably furnished, with character beams and a stone feature fireplace that houses a gas woodburner-effect stove, creating a lovely, cosy feel.

There is a modern, well-equipped kitchen and separate dining area, whilst stairs lead up to the three bedrooms, all boasting views to the distant hills.

A stable door opens onto a gravelled patio, which takes in superb views over the countryside, with sheep in the neighbouring field, this is a lovely spot to sit and relax with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.

A short walk brings you into this popular village, with excellent facilities, including a renowned butcher and a local inn serving real ale and food and a village shop.

Enjoy boating on the River Esk, or partake in coffee and cake in the river front tea room!

Children will enjoy feeding the ducks on the river, a ride on the miniature steam railway, or a fun afternoon at Mini Monsterz soft play centre, perfect for a rainy day.

Whitby offers many attractions, with its long, 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 an atmospheric 'ghost' walk in the evening.
