To celebrate my 70th birthday in October, 2012 my wife took me on a surprise visit by train to Whitby in order to give access to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. My wife decided on the Rosslyn Guest House as she liked the response she received when making preliminary enquiries over the telephone . As it turned out my wife's perception of our hosts was well founded as Patsy and Jo were an absolute joy, full of fun and hospitality. We could not have been made more welcome. Breakfast was taken in the very light and attractive front room with its high ceiling. On my birthday there was a 70th birthday balloon floating above our table in the bay window and a little cake with a candle. Every morning we watched the local dairyman, J. Ventress (shades of Heartbeat) deliver the milk. The house is situated in a residential area with a very wide street so there is ample room for parking for those not fortunate enough to have come by train The station is about a 6 minute taxi ride down the hill. We fell in love with Whitby. Coming from Cornwall we were surprised how attractive the area is. We hope to return one year when the NYMR is running at full strength. If so we shall have no hesitation in returning to the Rosslyn Guest House.
