“Cosy, comfortable family holiday cottage.”

Reviewed 27 May 2013

Excellent service from the caretakers who live next door, nothing is too much trouble for them and there are friendly neighbours living alongside. The cottage is clean and well equipped, with storage heaters and a wood burning stove (with a charge for the wood)for the cold winter months, a comfortable three piece suite and two beds and two bunk beds. There is a small enclosed garden outside across a shared yard. On the down side one of the storage heaters in the living room wasn't working in December 2012, the bathroom needed redecorating and the downstairs bedroom could do with a hand wash basin to go with the shower and toilet. There are two steps into the cottage and two steps from the kitchen to the sitting room so it is not suitable for disabled people. The cottage is ideally situated to explore the beautiful North Yorkshire coast and moors and a a few miles from Whitby, but a car is needed as there is no bus service.

“Relaxing and enjoyable!”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2013

Very friendly owners - we were very grateful for the impromptu demo on getting the Log Burner going - not having one at home - and also Sky TV - Thank you Simon. The cottage was clean and comfortable, bedroom cosy and warm, hot water always available, parking for 1 car outside essential. Sneaton is a short drive from Ruswarp and Whitby where all facilities you would expect for a seaside location are available. If you travel out of Whitby, over the large bridge, on the Scarborough Road then you will find a large Sainsburys store from where you can get back to the cottage further along the Scarborough Road, which we found easier than going back towards and through Ruswarp. Having relatives in Whitby, the surrounding area is familiar and this cottage was a nice base for us from which to visit them and see our usual favourite places of Sandsend, Whitby abbey, Goathland, Grosmont and be able to go on the tour bus etc. The cottage was like a home from home and other than benefitting from some updating of decoration in the upstairs bathroom I don't think there is much room for improvement. We would happily stay there again.

“Warm and cosy, pet friendly cottage”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2012

The caretakers next door are very friendly. We took our Lab and were made very welcome. The cottage is idealy situated for whitby, Scarborough, Bridlington and the yorkshire moors. It is very clean throughout and ideal for a couple with a dog. Unfortunately we did not visit the local pub as dogs are not welcome as they serve food, not even allowed in childrens room, even though pub was empty. We would go again as we had an enjoyable time and it being october, the dog was welcome on the beaches.

“Old Haven - Home from Home”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2011

Old Haven is a well equipped, spotlessly clean cottage just outside of Whitby with stunning far reaching views of Whitby abbey and the sea. A more than adequate kitchen and comfortable lounge, with the provision for a real fire if you wanted. There wasn't much that wasn't provided in this property. The only downside was the fact that the property backs directly onto and overlooks a main road,a bit noisy at times but overall not too much of a bother considering all the other plus sides. Good value for money

“lovely cottage perfect accomodation”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2011

The cottage was alittle difficult to find, but had misread the instructions, the cottage itself was lovely, had everything required with the bonus of a dishwasher.It was very comfortable & clean, close to Whitby & other places of interest. The caretaker lives next door & was extremely friendly & helpful, would have no problem recommending this cottage to anyone.

“Well worth it”

Reviewed 12 May 2011

We were made very welcome on our arrival, The cottage was very clean and comfortable with great views over to Whitby and the village pub is worth a visit be it for food or just a drink. There are some fantastic walks in the area including The Monks path which Meg ( the dog ) loved, One of the many walks we did. Brilliant!!

“A little bit of heaven on earth”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2010

Lovely Neighbours who answered our many questions on places to visit. The cottage was well equipped spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Located three miles outside Whitby in rolling countryside with Beautifull views looking to Whitby abbey. A small secluded garden was also included. A short walk to local pub, where staff were very welcoming and serve lovely bar meals. Would recommend steak night! And a visit to the ice cream factory is a must. Couldn't find anything wrong with this lovely accomodation and would really look forward to another visit.

Great area to visirt. Sneaton nice village. This cottage faces away from road. It was clwean warm and comfortable. the cooker took a bit of working out though. They said rthere would be fuel for the fire. there was none and no-one to ask. We had taken our own believe it or not. So we useed the woodburner which was cosy. Plenty of things to see and do, easy location from the cottage.

“Easter 2009”
