Couples or small families will adore this beautiful property in the Esk Valley, which perfectly combines the tradition of a charming English cottage and its classic decor, furnishings and fabrics with modern comforts such as underfloor heating and high-quality appliances and fixtures. The lovely stone cottage is in the heart of the village of Ruswarp, which has plenty of fun things to do – hire a rowing boat and explore the river, visit a farm park with a variety of animals or ride on the miniature railway.

The cottage was absolutely beautiful! Set in a remote location it was very peaceful with lovely surroundings and scenery. Anni was the most hospitable, friendly and helpful person! Such a nice lady who made us laugh. The cottage was clean and comfortable, very spacious and nicely decorated. The sofas were comfy as were the beds and pillows. Not farRead more from Whitby beach and a ten minute walk to the pleasure boats where we had lovely days out. Pet friendly cottage which was ideal for us with two dogs. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is searching for a relaxing break in Yorkshire 10/10. Hide

Property location ideal - very rural yet close to Whitby, moorland, railway, river other coastal sites, all of which suits Cleanliness unsurpassed. Comfort and quality - beds good and best pillows we have had in many hotels and cottages. Thumbs down for the lounge chairs - sorry. Dogs' facility ideal with enclosed lawns and temporary gates. We alwaRead moreys close our dogs in the kitchen at night, likewise here (the stair gate a nice touch). They behaved well. Most of the time the house was too warm and had the heating temp. set v. low. From past experience we always come well prepared but this time many items were supplied and therefore not needed. Hide
