What a base to explore
We stayed at Waterloo Cottage annexe with our Welsh Terrier Rhia. She absolutely loved the garden chasing the ducks. The cottage has everything you need and in a great location right on the river. Watched fish jumping while having breakfast. 11/2 miles into Whitby along the rail track which, is a nice easy walk. Cinder track walk also accessible from cottage. Pub at end of Bridge dog friendly, with good food. Quite a busy road past cottage but shouldn't detract from a nice stay.
Dream Holiday Home!
Waterloo Cottage Annexe is an absolute wonderful dream of a cottage! We travelled from Cheshire by train alighting at Ruswarp (Or Russop! As we were told it was pronounced by the locals) Station just across the river which was short walk over the bridge to the cottage - fantastic!
The cottage had everything! Everything you could possibly need was there, and everything was of a very high standard. It was beautifully clean, and decorated in a pleasant and peaceful manner. We were amazed when we entered to discover that it was like The Tardis of Dr. Who! It appeared small and neat from the outside, but inside it was very large. The lounge is large enough to accommodate large round dining table and four very comfy dining chairs as well as two comfy sofas one which converts to the extra bed.
There is an extra bonus of a conservatory with comfortable chairs and a table where we ate our breakfast every day enabling us to watch wildlife or the occasional canoeists.
It was wonderful seeing the Kingfishers glinting in the sun and the ducks were fun to watch as they made a bee-line across to the cottage every time you walked out on the garden or patio expecting a feed! There were lovely easy walks into Whitby from the cottage and were easy enough for us two oldies (75 & 85) to enjoy! There was a choice of buses from Whitby up and down the coast.
All in all, it was a wonderful holiday in a wonderful cottage and also, for which we were grateful - Wonderful weather! Although I think we would have enjoyed ourselves just as much anyway in such delightful surroundings!
A very big 'Thank you!' to Nicola and Dave for making us so very welcome and also Jill who kept the place pristine!
I visited this cottage with my 6 year old daughter and apart from a couple of niggling things enjoyed every minute. It's position is fantastic, garden is lovely and the cottage itself is well equipped and an excellent place to explore North Yorkshire from. The steam trains can be seen across the river and the river itself has many ducks, swans, cormorants plus a seal apparently. My daughter loved feeding the ducks every morning and night, there is no fence between the garden and the river but this is noted in the details but I think it would spoil the garden doing this so just have to keep an eye on youngsters as it is a steep drop. Ruswarp itself is lovely, we have been to North Yorkshire many times but not here before, the steam train from Goathland to Whitby is as good as ever, plenty to entertain children with Monks Farm and Playdale being particular favourites for my daughter. We visited the new aqua park in Scarborough, slides aren't really suitable for young children but worth a visit but expect it to be expensive with parking and extra charges if you stay over 4 hours. The niggling things were the TV volume shot up and down depending which channel you were watching plus it would have been nice to have some control over the heating.....being next to a river and the week was mixed so first thing in the morning my daughter said she was cold but apart from that it was brilliant and I would fully recommend it......we have already booked for next year so I had better start collecting that bread for the ducks!
Never have I found such a gem of a cottage. It was so well equipped, comfy and wwelcoming I almost cried on leaving. The wildlife was amazing,sitting in bed watching the kingfisher darting up the river was a real bonus. The log burner was fantastic at this time of year, the welcome pack of logs, wine and chocolates was a lovely touch. Can't wait to book again,
