“A relaxing, comfortable and home like cottage with a lovely garden for sitting in”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This cottage is ideal for a relaxing break. Reasonably priced and it is a pleasant flat walk into Whitby from Ruswarp on the cinder path by the railway. There is a regular bus service from Ruswarp to Whitby and a train service from Ruswarp Station. The cottage is clean and comfortable and warm. The garden is up some steps and a path and is lovely to sit in. There is no parking outside but we always park the car on the bottom road and leave it there. We enjoy walking and catching the bus, it makes it an active break for us. The dog enjoys his walks along the Monks Path across the road, where Deer can be seen. The local pub has lovely meals although the drinks are expensive.

“Ideal holiday cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a splendid holiday at Eskmoor Cottage due to the property being close to some of the best beaches on the North East Yorkshire coastline. I was on holiday with my daughter and my two grandsons who are both eager to be up and out when we are away. Whitby being only a mile away meant the we were able, by car, to access not only the beach but also the many excellent restaurants the town provides. A large Sainsbury's supermarket in Whitby meant we were able to buy any food shopping we required whilst at the cottage. I have nothing negative to say about the cottage and garden. Both are of a good standard. The lack of parking at, or outside the property was the only problem we encountered however that was mainly due to our being totally exhausted on our return at the end of a brilliant day.

“Lovely cottage, great location, super little garden, parking not great”

Lovely village, fantastic butchers which also has sandwiches, cakes ,pies, sweets. Bacon and sausage breakfast rolls made to order. Pub ok but food only til 8pm. Lovely walk across fields and woods to Whitby (part of the Cinder path) . Had good weather on the whole, only a couple of showers her and there.

We thought the general store was tatty with very little in it - would not recommend it.

Kitchen small, not much surface area to cook etc, living room very small. Bedrooms lovely and bathroom fine. Garden was great and a barbeque with charcoal supplied.

Would go back if in area.

“Great little cottage in a good location.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a great stay in Ruswarp. Nice to be in a quiet village outside Whitby although parking was a bit of an issue. Great base for exploring the area and the beaches. The cottage was very well equipped for self catering for a family of four, we even were able to barbecue in style. It is located in a lovely village with great facilities, including a pub, cafe, great butchers and row boat hire.
