A stunning country haven parcelled between the North York Moors and the dramatic North Sea, providing a divine retreat for big families and groups of friends.

This charming and spacious stone-built cottage is nestled on the edge of historic Whitby and offers a relaxing retreat for a group of friends or family on the stunning North Yorkshire coast. A fabulous combination of rustic charm and modern comforts make this four-bedroom property the ideal getaway for up to eight people.

On entering the stone-flagged hallway of the cottage, turn left and you are welcomed by the spacious lounge with its solid stone walls, exposed beams and cosy wood burner. Lie back on one of the soft leather sofas and feel the stresses and strains of life melt away as you investigate the welcome hamper. The large window allows plenty of natural light in, making it a lovely spot to put your feet up with a coffee and the papers in the morning. In the evening, draw the curtains and cosy up together in front of a film. The double-sided wood burner also warms the kitchen/diner. The smart kitchen blends into this characterful property perfectly, with its muted tones and tiled walls complementing the exposed beams. Warm the wine and enjoy some family time together as the logs on the wood burner crackle and hiss soothingly in the background. Upstairs on the first floor, the king-size bedroom is decorated in soft seaside blues and creams. Enjoy a restful start to the day listening to the trees rustling outside before heading into the fresh, bright en-suite for a hot shower. There is also a double bedroom on this floor and the bathroom, complete with a luxurious roll-top bath. Up on the top floor are the two twin rooms, with sloping ceilings and skylight windows, one of which has table football and a TV with DVD, making it perfect for younger children. Outside, the garden is on different levels, with an enclosed patio directly outside the cottage as well as a second patio at the other end of the garden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The location for this cottage is extra special, set down a quiet country lane in the tiny hamlet of Golden Grove, on the outskirts of Ruswarp and a few miles from the gorgeous Yorkshire Coast. You have the best of both worlds here, peace and quiet in a rural location (and parking right outside!) but with the delights of Whitby (2 miles) just a few minutes' drive away.

 

Ruswarp itself is a peaceful little place with a scattering of charming attractions and places to eat. Set on the River Esk you can hire rowing boats in the village and make your way peacefully along the water. Kids will love the miniature railway on the banks of the river here too. There's also a lovely waterside cafe which is perfect for an indulgent cream tea. A few miles north from the cottage takes you to the stunning North Yorkshire coastline, a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars. This part of the region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby. Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries.

 

Head inland from the cottage and you can be in the heart of the North York Moors within minutes. Take a tour of the impossibly pretty towns and villages in the area, Egton, Danby, Castleton, Rosedale. Or head up on the high moorland of Castleton Rigg, we guarantee on a clear day it will take your breath away.

Wonderful gem of a place. Perfectly appointed and really cosy and warm. We have all talked about booking again to stay here so I think that just about sums up what we thought of the place! Great for kids too. I brought a bag of toys from home for my 2 and 7 year old but I needn't have bothered as there was plenty for them to.play with in the cottagRead moree which was a really nice touch and is often overlooked.

The cottage was clean and fairly comfortable, the beds were good. However, I didn't feel comfortable with either the location or the access. It's in a remote spot, and access is up a very steep narrow hill (struggled to drive up it in first gear with a car full) then past a farm and down an even narrower lane, then onto a short unmade track to the Read morecottage. This should be made clear in the cottage description. Hide
