Goathland Cottage description

Holiday home
Goathland Cottage is a charming, terraced cottage, 0.5 miles from Ruswarp and just under 2 miles from Whitby. There are three bedrooms, each with country views, sleeping five people in total. There's also a bathroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside, there is a small, shared patio area with a barbecue and ample off road parking. Approached by a fairly steep road of approximately 600 yards, Goathland Cottage sits in a charming country location and offers a good base for touring the coast and countryside of beautiful North Yorkshire.

Situated just 1.5 miles inland from Whitby, the small village of Ruswarp lies on the River Esk, with old stone cottages lining the main street. Ruswap has excellent amenities, including a local pub with hand-pulled real ales, a village shop and a renowned local butcher. The Esk Valley Walk runs through the village, and it is an easy 25 minute walk to the centre of Whitby. Ruswarp has a regular bus service, and the single track railway has regular steam trains running through!

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Gas central heating with gas fire. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/radio, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Travel cot and highchair. Ample off road parking. Shared patio with furniture and BBQ. Sorry, no pets and no smoking.

We had a great week in March. The cottage was brilliant for us; so warm and comfortable. It was very well equipped, we would definitely recommend the property and would return again.

The overall standard of comfort, at the end of each day, it was a pleasure to come back to the cottage. In particular, the bed was very comfortable so we woke up feeling well rested and refreshed every day. The kitchen had everything you could need. The living area was cosy and comfortable.

The cottage is well laid out, cosy and has a well equipped kitchen. It is in a great location, close to Whitby and the North York Moors national park, so plenty of walks nearby. It is located at the top of a hill so there are some stunning views from the windows.

Goathland Cottage is well located for exploring the coast, moors and Esk Valley. It was a warm and comfortable base for an enjoyable winter walking break.

Lovely rural cottage in a fantastic location with sweeping views in all directions towards the sea and the North York moors. A great base for exploring the area. There was plenty to do on the doorstep and a short drive away to many places of interest.
