Town: Just two miles inland from the seaside resort of Whitby and the Yorkshire Coast is the quiet little North York Moors village of Ruswarp. As well as a nine-hole golf course, this quaint little place also enjoys the use of a village pub and shop as well as both sea and river fishing facilities.

We had a wonderful holiday at Water's Edge. We turned up earlier than expected and at the same time as the cleaners, but the cleaners were so lovely and understanding. The propert itself is very comfortable, spacious, modern and has an interesting aspect at the back ot the house looking over the river and at the stem trains as they passed by. Don't be put off by the trains, they did not bother us at all.
The nearby cafe where the boats can be hired from serves excelent food and their latte's were voted the best ever! We visited Whitby, Goathland, Robin Hood's Bay, Saltburn by The Sea, Sandsend, all of which portray the beauty of Yorkshire.
The best bit of the holiday was the comfiness of the property, the worst bit was only having one front door key (we had two families staying together) and the Keybox on the front of the house was not easy to use.
I would thoroughly recommend the property and we intend to go again.
Nb: Our party consited of adults and a newborn baby so I do not know how children would cope with the steps into the property and at the back of the property.
