“A quirky get away from it all break..”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

Excellent location for walking/access to the moors,steam trains passing 4 times a day.Whitby only a short walk away via several routes.Nice pub across the road.All in all a very chilled out break

“Brilliant accomodation But Parking an Issue”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2012

Having stayed in the adjoining Station House we decided to try the adjoining Ticket Office as it was cheaper but still offered the same unbeatable location with easy access to Whitby and the North Yorks Moors as well as the "main line" and preserved Nymr. The Ticket Office was excellent as dexpected,the spiral staircase not bothering her who must be obeyed even though she does not have a head for heights. Whilst the bed was accessible from one side only, this was not a problem and the overall ambience of the accomodation was excellent. Whilst there is a designated parking space for one car (and supposedly 3 for the Station House with 1 marked space) the people staying in the Staion House had 3 cars and on 4 occasions in a week we were either blocked in or could not access our space,I do not like the hassle of having to knock on doors at 0845 to wake somebody up in order to move their car(s) and ultimately we arranged to block their cars in as we inevitably left first in the morning.If you can manage to travel by public transport (Staion platform literally on the door step but a poor service however there is a reasonable bus service) then this would be ideal.There is very little spare parking in Ruswarp. Overall we would return to the the location again but would be prepared to pay the extra to stay in the Station House and do away with the parking issues.

“An unusual property”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2012

The Ticket Office was a really good experience (apart from the power cut which was the fault of the weather not the property). It is small but very interesting and the bed, although unusual, is wonderfully comfortable. We had everything we needed and the fun of having trains passing the window. There is a very popular butchers in the village and it is an easy 30minute walk into Whitby and the joys of fish and chips at The Magpie.

“excellent location”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2012

the ticket office at Ruswarp is a great place to stay duthe office e to being located around 20 minutes from Whitby. If you like steam trains its ideal. The butchers is second to none and the pub across the road very welcoming.The office is well equipped and very cosy. Only one slight problem being the bed located under the sloping ceiling making it difficult to get in and out of. thoroughly recommend it .

“Enjoyable Break”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2011

An enjoyable stay in quirky and cosy accommodation. A good base for visiting the seaside towns on the east coast. We particularly enjoyed the novelty of trains passing by your own front door!

“relaxing walking holiday”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2011

Good cottage right on the platform so excellent for transport up to and/or back from the moors. Well placed for moor and coast walks. Good standard accommodation This was our second visit - speaks for itself

“A gem of a cottage in a lovely place”

A beautiful cottage, warm, cosy and delightful - a joy.

“Fabulous location!!”

Reviewed 17 Dec 2009

My husband and I have to leave our fate in the hands of Sykes Holiday Cottages when we book our vacation because we're booking from Canada and we depend on them to make our trip a Holiday to remember. We have used them twice now, the first time for a trip to Cornwall and then last year to Whitby, (we wanted to see where Heartbeat is filmed), both trips have far exceeded our expectations and we will use them again in the future, and we have recommended them to a lot of our friends here in Canada, as they can be relied on completely. Thanks again, Joanne & David Parkinson.B.C. Canada

“Trains on the doorstep!”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2009

A lovely place to stay, very unusual, we were right on the station platform and trains stopped right outside the door. The home was very comfortable, all amenities provided, a spiral staircase dominated downstairs but was very nice. There is a great butcher's shop just up the road, bacon very good. All in all a great place to stay.

“A unique experience”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2009

We were aware of the fact that the bed had only access from one side but were surprised that it appeared to be in an alcove.Having spent a number of holidays on a narrowboat however we were used to this so it was not a problem.We would not recommend this let to anyone who has any disabilities.The property is ideal for railway enthusiasts however and overall a unique experience.
