“Fantastic Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

One of the most perfect places we have found so very peaceful, and very clean within a 30 min walk along the cinder path to Whitby, and 15 Min walk to Ruswarp.. wonderful views along the river.. the owners are more than accommodating, with the welcome pack and also being so very friendly and helpful, when visiting again we would certainly have no hesitation in booking this property, you will not be disappointed...

Thank you for a happy holiday

Very nice, clean and comfortable cottage. Excellent location and super peaceful. hard to fault anything, if only the owners could have influenced the weather.

Had a wonderful week at Riverbank Cottage. Very well equipped, very comfy and clean. Many thanks for the welcome pack much appreciated. Beautiful view from the window of the river and wildlife and the steam train passing by. Plenty of walks with the dogs which of course they enjoyed. Was everything we hoped for and we will certainly return. Thanks to Russ and Tricia x

“could be cleaner !!!”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Really good location and lovely views but on arriving noticed the front steps were un swept and cobwebs everywhere but got inside and all surfaces appeared clean but as I reached for a magazine down the side of the sofa I couldn't believe the dirt and fluff in the corner it was disgusting I then checked under the other cabinets and it was the same would say more than a weeks worth of dirt I daren't check under the bed !! was a real shame or it would have got rated a 5 as there was everything you needed and a good welcome pack

Being in the countryside nature sometimes advances more quickly than we can clean, so some debris blowing about in the wind can be expected. A narrow time window between customers does not always allow for such external cleaning, nor the moving and cleaning underneath each item of furniture. I am sorry this customer found some fluff in the corner and I am sure our next guest didn't find any. This customer wanted two days, at short notice, which we don't normally do because of the extra cleaning required either side of the booking. It was a favour on our part. Please see all the previous reviews on cleanliness. We will not be beating ourselves up over one slight mistake.

“Bright accommodation with super view of viaduct”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Accommodation set over 3 floors with toilet facilities on ground floor (kitchen) and 3rd floor (bedroom floor). Tv on all 3 levels. Super views from windows and bright accommodation with windows on 2 sides (back and front). Shared garden at rear, a lovely sun trap with table and seating provided. Plenty of walks (although you do have to go up the steep hill to get to the viaduct )-this is then about a 20 minute walk to Whitby. Would have preferred segregated garden area as we have a dog, but knew what we were booking. Go to Foss Falls tea rooms for lovely cakes, about 5 minutes drive away. There is a lovely walk by the river to get to this if you park at the car park further on, next turn after the Foss Falls turning, over the cattle grid. Good communication with owner and just ask if there is anything you need to know about the area. Lots of wires connecting TVs / DVds etc so make sure correct appliance is plugged in and has not fallen out.

“Very cosy and well equipped.”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Delighted with our stay at River Bank Cottage. Was nice to stay close to river with North Yorkshire Steam trains travelling along on the opposite side of the river. Cottage was well equipped with everything you would need. Nice touch was the fresh orange, milk, tea, coffee and biscuits. Access to town by foot was an enjoyable stroll over the top of the viaduct and along the cinder track. Took us about 25 minutes or less than 10 mins by car. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

It's really appreciated when our guests take the time to give us feed back, and great to hear that we are doing things right. We like to leave the cottage as we would like it to be for ourselves, so it's a real pleasure when we hear others enjoy it too. Thanks you.
