With 4 gorgeous bedrooms sleeping up to 8 people comfortably, it's the perfect option for families or groups of friends looking for an elegant and stylish retreat on the Yorkshire Coast.

Subject to a complete refurbishment recently, the charming period exterior of Crag Cottage gives way to a gorgeous contemporary interior with bags of space for the whole family. Step inside to discover a generous open plan kitchen and dining area, dominated by a wow-factor double sided wood-burner which also heats the living room next door. Downstairs boasts solid oak flooring throughout which feels warm and welcoming underfoot.

The immaculate modern kitchen has solid wooden worktops, a range-style cooker and sleek brick-style tiles giving it a clean and fresh look. There's a dishwasher and microwave for your convenience and a washing machine is provided in the utility just outside. The fabulous dining table seats 8 people very comfortably and set beside a large window it's a lovely spot for those noisy family breakfasts. And when the kids have gone to bed, fire up the wood burner and settle down to a grown-up dinner by the fire.

Next door you'll find the spacious living room, again with that stunning wood-burner at its heart. Another large window here lets in lots of light and comfy leather sofas provide the ideal backdrop to a chilled family room. There's an LCD TV in here with Freeview & Netflix, a DVD player and Wi-Fi is also provided. Games and books are provided for some offline entertainment too. Enjoy looking out at a sea of Rhododendrons outside at certain times of the year.

Local Area

The location of Crag Cottage is beautiful, set down a quiet country lane on the outskirts of Ruswarp just a few miles from the gorgeous Yorkshire Coast.  You have the best of both worlds here, peace and quiet (and parking right outside!) but with the delights of Whitby just a few minutes' drive away.

Ruswarp itself is a peaceful little place with a scattering of charming attractions and places to eat.  Set on the river Esk you can hire rowing boats in the village and make your way peacefully along the water. Kids will love the miniature railway on the banks of the river here too.  There's also a lovely waterside cafe which is perfect for an indulgent cream tea.

A few miles North from the cottage takes you to the stunning North Yorkshire coastline, a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby. Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th Century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries.

Although you could happily spend the weekend mooching about the independent shops, bars and cafes along Whitby's bustling medieval streets, it's well worth striking out to sample some of the other coastal villages nearby.  Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire, or the UK for that matter.  The village is a maze of cobbled streets and higgledy piggledy houses which seem to tumble down towards the sea.  Sandsend, Staithes and Runswick Bay are also all within easy driving distance, each with their own unique charm.

Head inland from the cottage and you can be in the heart of the North York Moors within minutes.  Take a tour of the impossibly pretty towns and villages in the area, Egton, Danby, Castleton, Rosedale...Or head up on the high moorland of Castleton Rigg, we guarantee on a clear day it will take your breath away.  Suffice to say this area is a walker's paradise and many suggested routes are provided for you in the cottage.
