Lovely place to stay in the most lovely location. Ruby's Retreat is just that - a retreat x However you can have it all, go to York day or night or go to Scarborough for old fanshioned family fun x Celebrated my partners 40th here after searching hours for the ideal location of a country base but with options for further exploring x The work that has gone into the holiday development is first class x We had home made biscuits, milk, wine, sweets and fresh flowers on arrival, with tea, coffee and sugar available x Loved the bedrooms the best, with maassive baths in the bedrooms and unique fittings placed everywhere. Also the free games room was an extra bonus that other places lack x The couch is the most amazing couch ever x Lovely owners who live on site but leave you to it with just enough level of service to ensure your needs are met x
