Very friendly owners - we were very grateful for the impromptu demo on getting the Log Burner going - not having one at home - and also Sky TV - Thank you Simon.
The cottage was clean and comfortable, bedroom cosy and warm, hot water always available, parking for 1 car outside essential.
Sneaton is a short drive from Ruswarp and Whitby where all facilities you would expect for a seaside location are available. If you travel out of Whitby, over the large bridge, on the Scarborough Road then you will find a large Sainsburys store from where you can get back to the cottage further along the Scarborough Road, which we found easier than going back towards and through Ruswarp.
Having relatives in Whitby, the surrounding area is familiar and this cottage was a nice base for us from which to visit them and see our usual favourite places of Sandsend, Whitby abbey, Goathland, Grosmont and be able to go on the tour bus etc.
The cottage was like a home from home and other than benefitting from some updating of decoration in the upstairs bathroom I don't think there is much room for improvement. We would happily stay there again.
