We booked a great cottage (actually quite like a hobbit house) near Whitby that was lovely and very good value for money.Mr Dom Barry - 10th November 2015
Beautiful cottage, we felt really comfortable there. The facilities were second to none and the location ideal for us. Parking is a little difficult but didn't spoil our holiday. Would definitely go again.Mrs Wendy Mullan - 30th September 2015
Having access to the beach hut was a nice touch. Property well located for walking into Whitby along the River Esk although Ruswarp High Street is very narrow and busy with passing traffic from 6am until late evening. The team in the Whitby office were very helpful when we enquired about extending our stay.Mrs Clare Selby - 1st September 2015

Ruswarp is a picturesque village located just less than two miles away from Whitby and along the river Esk. There is a train station which passes through the village going to Pickering or Middlesbrough. The village has many attractions and activities for the family to enjoy. You can row your way down the River Esk in a rowing boat which are available for hire. There is a soft play area called Mini Monsters for the children and a farm park with a variety of farm animals as well as a miniature railway for children to enjoy. Alternatively if you fancy a walk there are many nice routes including The Monks Trod footpath leading to Whitby or routes to the neighbouring village of Sleights.
For more information on Ruswarp and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Coast Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
