Being 3 family's we've had a fantastic week long stay at The Station House. It's in an ideal location as it's a 20 to 25 walk into Whitby and short trips to other areas by car, train or bus. The pub across the road The Bridge Inn is amazing, food and staff are brilliant and is a must if stay here. The house has everything you'd need and more while away here. We will definitely be back.

We had an amazing holiday in this fantastic house. It has everything you need and the location is very good for Whitby which is just a short walk away.

Thanks to the owner for the delicious cakes and bread which was a lovely surprise.

Our family would definitely stay here again.

A brilliant location in a lovely friendly village, with the bonus of trains outside your window!

We booked this house for a family holiday for 7 adults and two dogs. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The layout is fun, lots of space to spread out.

There's an easy, level walk into the centre of Whitby from outside the house along the gorgeous Esk valley, between the river and the railway. (It's more like 30 minutes than 20). Ruswarp is delightful, don't miss the rowing boats, Jackson's the butcher and the little village shop.

Things we didn't spot before we booked (might be important to someone else). --*Parking is tight and you share it with visitors to the little rental next door.

*The only outside space is two paved courtyard areas, partly shaded, but very secure and private.

*And I'm afraid I have to agree with other reviewers about the four poster. It was quite hard. Everyone else said their beds were really comfy though.

Finally, don't let the thought of trains passing outside the window put you off, the house was surprisingly quiet. They're mostly gone before you notice. However the steam trains do exactly what you'd expect: there's a lot of steam and puffing and it's brilliant.

Cottage Review:  

Very spacious property. Great to lose the kids in!

I had 2 issues with the property.

1. The en suites were far too small to enjoy a shower in. Our teenage daughters found them too small and so did we.We didn't use the shower in the master bedroom as it was awkward to get in and out of and the water was too slow. For a property this large I would of expected better sized en suites. The shower room that was off the dining room was too small also.

The shared bathroom was large and lovely! But did not have a shower in.

2.the dining table was very awkward to sit around as it was too wide for the room and it had very large awkwardly positioned legs.

But all in all a very nice dog friendly property.

Cottage Review:  

We had a lovely stay here in August 2020. The cottage takes 11 people and 2 dogs, which effectively made up our entire party.

During our stay quite a few things were not quite right - the fridge was turned down to the lowest setting and our food in danger of going off. The owner was curt in manner and less than helpful when we rang her to ask where the gauge was to 'up' the fridge setting. On another occasion a compartment in the fridge door fell off when we put a bottle on it. And most concerning of all, a rusty nail stuck up from one of the chairs, hurting my daughter in law when she sat on it; that could have been really serious if it had been my 90 year old mother in law or my infant grandchildren sitting on it. When we raised these things with the owner (nicely) she neither apologised nor seemed bothered by us flagging them - infact she was again, unfriendly and unhelpful.

On our return we were subjected to a litany of things we were supposed to have done wrong. Many were downright fibs (she alleged we had broken a window, which was absolutely like that before we came; I remember looking at it and thinking it looked like someone had put a bullet in it! But she was insistent that the damage was caused by ourselves.) She also stated that we hadn't left the house in a clean and tidy state, which again, was untrue - we spent a good hour cleaning round before we left, emptying the fridge and the bins, tidying up, etc. As I later explained, it was not our responsibility to leave the place sparkling - surely that is the job of the cleaner when cleaning the property for the next people? I am not sure quite what she was expecting, but clean and tidy is how we left it.

I will own to a mark on the wall and a spillage on a chair cushion which could have been done by my small grandchildren and have offered to recompense her for this - but it's hard to rid ourselves of the notion that she wanted to 'get her own back' on the small points we raised with her whilst staying there. I'm still stunned that she could try and pin the damage to the window on us. If we had damaged the window we would have owned up straight away - we're actually like that!

A pity because we had a lovely time otherwise and the property is great. But she's not a good person to deal with and if you do stay there, be advised that you are dealing with someone who is less than reasonable in her manner and outlook.

Just spent 3 lovely days in this beautiful house 7 adults and 4 children. Plenty of room for our family gathering for new year. It has everything in it you could possibly need and fresh baked bread, biscuits and chocolates left for us on our arrival. Nice old pub just across the road and a nice 20 minute walk into Whitby. Would certainly recommend it

We stayed here as a Ruby Wedding celebration with our family including our baby grandson. Everyone agreed it was the best equipped place we had stayed in. The trains were an unusual and most enjoyable experience and we were able to welcome part of our family from London on the platform. Would love to return

Lovely large house suitable for large groups, very clean and well stocked with everything you

may need during your stay. The trains stop right outside your door and while we were

there the Santa Express stopped, which was lovely. Easy access into Whitby and surrounding area. There is a pub across the road but unfortuneatly they weren't serving

food whle we were there. There is also a very good butcher just down the road which also

serves bread, cakes, cold meats etc. Would definitely stay here again.
