“Lovely stay as always”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Cottage always clean and welcoming. Comfy bed, dishwasher and even washing machine/dryer if needed. Lovely biscuits and handy milk waiting in fridge.
Table and chairs out back to make the most of the sun. So peaceful and relaxing with lovely views over river.

“Fantastic Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 3 July 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
