Graham Woodhead,

We loved staying here, it's in a beautiful situation, very comfortable and well cared-for, and we had a warm welcome from Carole. We will certainly look to stay here again next time we take a break in this area.

Ms Sarah Watt,

Excellent cottage and location!

Mrs Amanda Ayris,


Area Information

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.
