This beautiful, Grade II listed station and stationmaster’s house offers exceptional holiday accommodation for up to 11 people.

This is an exceptional, Grade II listed building and has been converted to the highest of standards. Many original features have been retained including a feature stained glass window and some exposed beams. The kitchen is a warm and inviting room with an Aga at its heart and a fabulous Belfast sink. The formal dining room has generous proportions and there are two elegant and tasteful sitting rooms, one with a wood burner. There are five sumptuous bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and the luxurious bathroom has a roll top bath for that relaxing soak at the end of a busy day. This really is a very special property and one that would enhance a holiday in this wonderful location.


Perfect for a large family
Spotlessly clean when we arrived, with the nice touch of a loaf baking in the bread machine. This property is ideal for a large group, family or otherwise, altough the stairs to the top floor bedrooms are a bit steep for anyone with mobility problems. Plenty of room to chill downstairs with a choice of two well furnished lounges. The dining room is a bit of a squeeze though. The main bedroom is very comfortable with an en suite and a four poster, the other four bedrooms also comfortable but not quite as posh. We walked into Whitby alongside the railway and river Esk. Scenic, fairly flat and took around 30 minutes. Highly recommend the village butcher.

Great location for a great weekend
We recently returned from a weekend break at The Station House. My mum was having her 60th birthday and had booked the cottage for a family group including adults and a young child. We didn?t really know what to expect, but were very impressed by everything that the Station House had to offer. We were concerned that, with so many of us in the party that it would feel cramped, but this couldn?t have been further from reality. The house is very spacious, with 5 very well appointed, good sized rooms, which, and the rest of the house is just as roomy, with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Our little girl loved the fact that the house was attached to a working railway line and platform, and was very excited watching trains pass, and greeting one of our family members at the adjoining platform. There are some very quirky, original features such as low beams, traditional railway paraphernalia and a fantastic AGA cooker. The location couldn?t be better - only a 5 minute drive from Whitby, or a 5 minute train ride direct from the house to Whitby centre. We had a great weekend, would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Right on the station at Ruswarp, with fabulous steam trains chugging past a couple of times a day, an easy walk into Whitby about 20 mins, or jump the local train 6-9 mins. Ruswarp has a brilliant butcher who's goods could feed you with something different for every day of your break, and pies and sausage rolls that will please the most discerning. The house is huge and well fitted out with good quality fixtures and fittings, and everything to make your stay easy, the quality of bed linen (feathers) for those with allergies, was top notch, and towels enough for all and thick and soft, Whitby well what can I say that hasn't been said, a great place with history, intrigue, old alleyways small bars, that sell good reasonably priced food and unique shops for all, the added bonus was the Goth weekend where all manner of beasties and Victorian steampunk, and costumes adorn the streets, my grandchildren loved these, and thank you to those who let us take photos, as my parting words give it a whirl take the whole family, oops go to Beacon farm for the best scones ever, and home made real ice cream, JUST LIVE AND ENJOY

had our week here and ive had an amazing time I can't fault, there's 11 of us here in total. a fantastic holiday let on the ruswarp station , seen the steam train which ended Oct 29th. there's a brilliant walk into whitby next to the line. the village is good quiet and out of the way way. the local pub is a massive walk away all of 10yards at least , i can't fault the place if im booking a large party highly recommend. to the the posh southerners if you don't like it and it's not your multi million pound house welcome t yorkshire and more shame on you not enjoying our countryside you can downgrade to lidl for you shop. but for me the place is stunning and the village is brilliant. full marks and more for this little gem

Great location
We had a large group holiday and booked this property and the Ticket Office, which is a small 2 person property attached to the Station House. There was enough parking at the property for 3 cars, 4 including the space for the Ticket Office. The first impressions of the property were that it was clean and very well cared for. There are so many rooms in this property that 12 people staying here would still not feel cramped. The location is the best thing about the property and we were able to watch the trains go by from the comfort of the sofas. The entire family had a wonderful stay at this property and would really recommend it for any family get-aways and even a large group of friends.
