Lying in the beautiful Esk Valley, the village of Ruswarp is just two miles from the centre of Whitby and only a mile and a half on foot using the “Cinder Track” disused railway line. This trail links Whitby to Scarborough and is perfect for a cycle ride. You can hop on the train to Whitby on the Esk Valley line or going in the opposite direction, this railway line will take you to lots of pretty villages in the North York Moors National Park.

Within the village you can hire rowing boats and canoes for a relaxing trip on the river and take a ride on a miniature railway. The local pub, The Bridge Inn, serves food and there is a village shop for all the essentials. In the nearby village of Sleights there is a general store, bakery, butcher and fish and chip restaurant with take away.

On the East Cliff in Whitby, overlooking the North Sea, the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. Nearby is the Church of St. Mary, reached by 199 steps. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum, in the house where Cook once lived, displays paintings and maps. West of town is West Cliff Beach, lined with beach huts and the giant whale bone arch is not to be missed.

Of course Whitby is also famous for excellent fish and chips, fresh from the sea, what could be better!

We really enjoyed our stay at Larpool Mill, the house was beautiful and had everything we needed, the location was also perfect.

Thank you for all your help with our booking.

The whole family very much enjoyed our stay at Larpool Mill. The house was cosy, comfortable and perfect for a family get together.  The kitchen was well equipped with all we could ask for. I would wholeheartedly recommend the property for family gatherings.
We are no strangers to the North Yorkshire coast and certainly found plenty to do over the weekend despite the weather.  There are some super walks right on the doorstep.
Many thanks

November 2023

Our gathering was to celebrate a 70th birthday, with 3 generations of family – all adult.  We all knew the region in advance of the trip.

We found the property very pleasant, and well equipped.  We enjoy cooking and were making large meals for the family, and managed to find all the equipment we needed.  In our experience this is quite rare.  Even though we had snow while we were there the house was always warm.

We had expected more guests than arrived, and had intended to use the mezzanine level as a bedroom, but it was not needed.  On reflection, I would suggest that this area is perhaps more suitable for children, as there isn’t door, there are curtains for screeing.

I was also grateful that you responded to my questions about the property so promptly.

Thanks for making a landmark birthday memorable.

The property was very nice, plenty of space and decor that really suited us.
We found a lovely off road walk for the dog to Whitby that only required us to walk down the lane for half a mile.
It is a very nice area, in the nearby village of Ruswarp we found a lovely dog friendly cafe on the river.
We got Sainsbury’s to deliver to the property which was a big help
The booking process was very easy and we’d certainly book with Beautiful Escapes again.

Louise and family – February 2022

The mill was immaculately presented with a well equipped kitchen.

All rooms were warm and cosy and good to have lots of space for everyone .
It was too cold to sit outside, but in the warmer weather , it would be lovely to enjoy eating al fresco watching the little stream and the birds .
Easy to book through beautiful escapes and all further questions were answered to ensure a special birthday weekend.
Thank you
