This modern terraced cottage is located in the village of Ruswarp near to Whitby and can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

27 Mill Court is a modern terraced cottage overlooking the river in the village of Ruswarp, just two miles from Whitby in North Yorkshire. The cottage has four bedrooms (three doubles - one with an ensuite - and one with bunk beds) and a family bathroom, making it suitable for eight people. The cottage also has a fitted kitchen with a dining area, a conservatory, and a first floor sitting room.

Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed patio garden with outdoor furniture, a barbecue and a gate to the river. Just a couple of miles from Whitby and in close proximity to the moors, 27 Mill Court is a superb family holiday home in this beautiful part of Yorkshire.


Perfect in every way
This is our second visit to Water's Edge, which tells a story in itself. There is something for everyone here. Starting with the location, Water's Edge is nicely placed on a river in the quiet village of Ruswarp. It is possible to walk into Whitby in 30 mins, along the path between the river and the railway. Whitby itself has so much to do that it would be impossible to list here. We made the most of the town, including the mandatory fish and chips and visit to the Abbey. The nearest supermarkets are a 10 min drive away from the property. We also made the most of the easy access to the off road cycle path which goes from Whitby to Scarborough. Within walking distance there is boat rental for the river, a cafe, miniature railway and a local shop. The property itself is well equipped, clean and nicely maintained. The rear of the property has a nice outdoor seating area and a conservatory, so that you can enjoy the views of the river and the passing of the North Yorks Moors Railway trains come rain or shine. There is a platform that goes down to the river's edge so that you can feed the ducks or even launch a boat if you wanted. The rest of the property is well laid out. Our only feeling about how it could be improved would be to have one of the double rooms converted to a twin so that sleeping arrangement would be more versatile. We would love to return to this delightful holiday cottage. Having been twice, we'd be very happy to come back and do it all over again.

The location was superb and the layout of the house was ideal, particularly the kitchen and conservatory area. There was easy access to Whitby without the need to drive. The kitchen was like a home from home with everything you could possibly need.
Mrs Hayton

Liked the standard of the accommodation and the homely feel. It is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. This particular property is situated in a beautiful spot with the river and steam train at the bottom of the garden.
Ms Cripps

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting - didn't want to leave!
Mrs Stewart

We loved this place. The decor and furnishings were of the highest quality. The beds were comfortable, the space fantastic and the atmosphere such a wonderful and happy place. We loved sitting in the conservatory watching the river and waving to the steam trains. It was one of the nicest places we have stayed. Thanks so much!
