Excellent t cottage ,,well equipped and very comfortable
My daughter & I stayed at Danby Cottage , Ruswarp .. The cottage was very clean & comfortable. The owner has provided tea towels , cleaning products , soap etc , so no need to bring these items with you. Also we were left an annual pass for Whitby museum which was very thoughtful. You can walk into Whitby from Ruswarp in about 30mins , the path is at the level crossing between the railway line & river . It's quite a pleasant walk .

A lovely little cottage in a great location with wonderful views towards Whitby Abbey and the North Yorkshire Moors.. Kitchen facilities were great and rooms very clean and comfortable. Ideally located for trips inland or to the coast, and lots of nice walks nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

This is an excellent cottage and suited us (couple with two young sons) perfectly.. On the very edges of town but extremely peaceful. Could easily walk into the village for minature steam train/boats/little shops and a pub as well as buses and trains. Well proportioned and spacious accommodation for an average family or small group of friends.
Well equipped, only comment really is that the microwave is on its last legs and beeps randomly. Everything else worked great.
Disappointing that games/DVD have been removed but I blame the pandemic for this.
We were also with the owner's agreement able to charge our EV through the window which was enormously appreciated.

Mr Greenwood, September 2019
We all really enjoyed our stay at Danby Cottage.. It was so cosy and very well equipped. We spent lots of time chilling out and enjoying the facilities the cottage had to offer. The cottage was in a beautiful location and was really peaceful and private. It was really convenient and easy to get to Whitby and lots of other lovely locations. It was also good for trains and buses. We would definately stay here again. It was really reasonably priced and great value.
Mr Churchward, September 2019
The cottage was very clean and was an easy walk in to whitby and we found a pub that was very good the food was excelent and very welcoming at the bottom of the road.. The views were out of this world and we would highly recommend this cottage.

Mr Murphy, September 2019
We just loved the private and safe location.. . space for my children to play safely... accommodation was good smart bedrooms .. hot shower
Mr Somerfield, August 2019
Could do with a new boiler and there was a lot of cobwebs but it is a lovely cottage..
Mrs Brown, July 2019
Lovely cottage , a bit dated on the steep hill, great views.. We had a great time and we were very lucky with the weather.
I would like just to say that sign with direction to the cottage should be more visible and the road to the cottage is narrow and a bit steep .
Mrs Welford, August 2019
A lovely cottage in a very pleasant setting.. It was well equipped and comfortable.
We felt the directions were a little vague as it said the entrance to the cottage road was opposite the miniature steam railway but by the time you could see the steam railway you had gone past the entrance.
The garden was pleasant to sit in but would be improved by there being a more solid separation between Goathland cottage and Danby Cottage giving more privacy. Perhaps some climbing plants up the trellis?
It would be nice to have had a spare toilet roll as 4 of us quickly got through the one that was there and a dishwasher tablet for every day of our stay would have been good.
However we had a good holiday in Danby Cottage and would happily stay there again.
Lovely cottage, very cosy.. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything that you may need.
The boiler is situated in a wardrobe in the single bedroom, it is unfortunately very noisy!! In the bedroom st the back of the cottage the radiator pipes seem to be very near to the floorboards and so squeak/creak loudly when you are walking past the radiator, this could in time crack the pipes?
Overall a lovely holiday cottage in a beautiful setting.
We arrived in the evening when it was dark but after we had opened the door and turned the light on we where pleasent surprised how comfortable it looked and with tasteful Christmas decorations we felt immediately at Home.. We had a small problem with the heating but Jenny our host was very helpful and got this rectified quickly,so this didn't detract from our experience. We loved our stay at Danby cottage and it felt like home. We want to thank the owner for her care and consideration, we couldn't find the visitors book to express our feelings but left a card. A little reminder change the batteries on the remote. Overall it was wonderful time and would recommend to our friends.
I enjoyed my stay at Danby cottage and would recommend it..
My second stay at this beautiful cottage.. It’s perfect for a relaxing get away.
Unfortunately can’t see me returning as the price for the same week next year has risen by more than 60%.
Such a shame !!
Danby cottage was very clean, comfortable and cosy.. Kitchen was well equipped and the cottage was well situated in a peaceful location close to the Moor and the coast.
We had a great time there it was very homely and very clean.. We highly recomend it
Lovely rural setting albeit up a steep hill but this gives fab views.. Danby is among a group of what looks like old farm buildings made in to several smaller cottages. It is tastefully decorated and very clean with modern facilities such as wifi, washing machine, dishwasher etc. (The TV isn't going to last much longer.)
I would've liked to see a visitor book with suggestions of where people have visited, restaurants etc.
A nice little base for visiting the North Yorkshire coast and moors.
We had a lovely holiday in Danby cottage.. It is set in peaceful & beautiful surroundings, perfect for a relaxing break. We were surprised but excited to see a wild deer cross our path on the drive up to the cottages. Danby cottage was cosy & welcoming with everything you might need. It was very clean and well-cared for with comfy sofas and beds. It is only a short drive from Whitby town centre and there is also a countryside walk of about a mile from Ruswarp into town if you fancy stretching your legs. We had a very enjoyable trip.
Perfect location and a real home from home.. We had everything we needed. Would certainly recommend this holiday cottage - beautiful.
Lovely cottage set in a rural area but close enough to all u need..
This is a lovely cottage, very quiet and great for families.. There were lots of extras to make the stay provided by the owners easy I.e kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets, dvds. We would be more than happy to stay again.
The cottage is in a great location to explore however you need to be aware that the car is really needed as there isn’t much to do within walking distance of the cottage.

The hill up to the cottage was more than a slight incline it was very steep not for the fainthearted to walk up,I only did it once had to use the car,and park it near the boating lake then either walk by the railway line which took us 35mins or catch the bus which ran every half hour,enjoyed our stay cottage was everything you could wish for
Everything provided including lovely large white fluffy towels! Comfortable seating and a lovely outside space, excellent.
Had a lovely time there hope to go again the scenery was lovely and nice and quiet great views
We really enjoyed our stay.. The cottage is lovely.
Lovely cottage with excellent facilities and plenty of kitchen crockery etc.. Great location for travelling to local places.
Such a lovely cottage with everything we needed to make our 5 night stay with two young children comfortable and extremely enjoyable.. One suggestion which would have exceeded expectations would be the option to have a stair gate put in. Our 18 mth old is very quick so we had to watch him like a hawk. However we got around this but putting dining chairs at the top and bottom of stairs. Other than that the cottage and location was fantastic.
A very comfortable cottage with everything we needed for a brilliant week away.. Well equipped, lovely and warm with plenty of hot water. Excellent location and very quiet, I imagine in the warmer months it would be lovely to sit outside in the evening. Cannot fault this cottage and would certainly return - hopefully soon.
A fantastic cottage..
A comfy and well equipped cottage.. Location great for us as we like to be a little off the’beaten track ‘. Short drive to Whitby.
Had a perfect week. Would definitely visit this cottage again if it remains in our price range .
I couldn't t find a hair drier which was available on a previous holiday.. I had to buy one during my stay.
The cottage was lovely, clean and beautifully decorated.. It had a lovely homely feel to it
The outside space was fantastic for our 5 year old
Very peaceful we felt like we were the only ones there
Location was ideal for us.. Fantastic cottage and would highly recommend this to anyone
Lovely long weekend stay, very comfortable and homely, close to amenities and still feels like your out in the countryside..
We have been before and it was just as good as we remembered thankyou very much and we will definitely be back
Excellent cottage and amenities, everything is in place for a really relaxing holiday.

Very nice cottage and great location with lots to do nearby. The whole family's needs were met (three generations). No mean feat.
