An interesting and imaginative conversion of a stone-built Victorian Grade II listed former ticket office, set in the centre of the bustling village of Ruswarp, 1.5 miles from Whitby. Offering quirky accommodation, this Ruswarp cottage provides a perfect hideaway for couples wanting to stay somewhere a little bit different! Retaining many original features, this Ruswarp cottage has a decorative cast iron fireplace, mullion windows and tongue and groove panelled walls. The attractive, open plan living space of this Ruswarp cottage has been sympathetically restored, with slate floors, a cosy living flame gas fire and a small dining area overlooking the station platform. A spiral staircase leads up to a cabin-style bedroom and shower room, tucked into the eaves of the building. Decorated and maintained to a high standard, this Ruswarp cottage provides a comfortable holiday home with steam trains passing the door and excellent village amenities, including a good butcher's, a local shop and a pub serving real ale and good food. With boating on the River Esk and a lovely waterside tea room, the locality has much to offer. The Esk Valley Walk runs through the village and a public footpath offers a pleasant walk into the historic port of Whitby, with its pretty harbour, sandy beaches and wide range of restaurants and shops. With the beautiful heather-clad moors and dramatic coastline to explore, this Ruswarp cottage is in the perfect location.

The little North York Moors village of Ruswarp is just two miles inland from Whitby on the boundary of the National Park. It has a general store, public house and tearoom. There is an impressive viaduct crossing the River Esk, which is one of the region's major landmarks. Over five million bricks were used to build the viaduct, it is 120 feet high and was built to carry the Scarborough to Whitby railway line. The line was closed in 1965 and now the viaduct is a walking and cycle trail. Visitors can enjoy river and sea fishing or spend time boating on the river. As well as the famous North York Steam Railway, train enthusiasts can also enjoy a trip on Ruswarp's miniature steam railway. This village is in a superb location for a memorable holiday.
