Beautiful Self Catering Accommodation on the North Yorkshire Coast

Rhuss Cottage

The Cottage and Surrounding Area

Rhuss Cottage is an attractive stone built cottage which has been developed as a holiday cottage designed to accommodate 5 persons and a baby. The Cottage dates back to the 17th Century and is a Grade II listed building within the heart of the North York Moors National Park. The cottage has been used for holidays since 1984 and many visitors have returned time and time again.

Rhuss Cottage is set back from the High Street in a sheltered, south facing position. It has its own enclosed garden to the front and a small enclosed, very private patio with furniture to the rear. Your car should be parked on Rhuss Cottage's private hardstanding in front of the cottage.

The cottage is within walking distance of the beach at Runswick Bay, which is a particularly pretty part of the Heritage Coastline. Runswick Bay is much quieter than Sandsend and very suitable for sandcastles and bucket and spade activities. Hinderwell is 6 miles from Sandsend which is renowned for its long beach and spectacular high tides which crash onto the main road though the village.

Rhuss Cottage is an ideal location for touring the area being only eight miles from Whitby with it's cliff top Abbey and being the home port of Captain James Cook. Closer to home are the pretty and smaller fishing villages of Runswick Bay (1 mile), Staithes (2 miles) and Port Mulgrave (1 mile). Port Mulgrave is a lovely quiet place with its own tiny harbour and beach. It is also one of the richest sources of fossils in the country. We have visitors who come from as far as Germany to collect them.

Walkers will find themselves spoilt for choice with the range of way-marked walks including the Cleveland Way close by. Hinderwell is also ideally placed to tour not only the Heritage Coast but also the rural hinterland including the North Yorks Moors National Park area. Goathland, the scenic village of ITV's "Heartbeat" series, is less than 30 minutes away.

Hinderwell is a small village but well supplied with shops and amenities; these include: Post Office/Grocer, butcher, hairdresser, doctors surgery. The Badger Hounds and Brown Cow Inns both serve food and welcome children. There is also a children's play area, tennis courts and telephone kiosk.

Mobile phones sometime struggle to get reception in rural areas.

Hinderwell is on the main Middlesbrough to Whitby bus route.
