Ruswarp is a mile outside Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Scarborough is 25 miles away to the south, and the beautiful coast stretches up to the north, from Robins Hood Bay to Sandsend (only 5 mins drive away), leading to Runswick Bay and Staithes. We are ideally placed for all the lovely walks and villages in the North Yorkshire Moors, with the village of Goathland being the TV set for Heartbeat. The Great Yorkshire forest at Dalby is only 20 mins drive away, offering fantastic mountain bike trails and an aerial rope course not for the faint hearted. If it is shopping you want, York is 50 miles to the south, with all the attractions of the Minster, the National Railway Museum and the Jorvik Viking Museum. However it is Whitby which is the main attraction, with award winning fish and chips, fantastic beach and harbour, as well as the quaint streets and shops which will keep you coming back year after year.
