Extra Amenities

Just a short stroll away from the many attractions this diverse little town boasts, from the iconic abbey to the long golden beach. You are in a peaceful residential area, which is becoming increasingly popular with holiday makers, due to its proximity to the town centre whilst escaping the bustling crowds.
Ruffles has been lovingly furnished throughout; the owners have taken great care in ensuring you have a comfortable stay. On entering the property you come into the hallway which leads into the lounge at the front, as well as the separate kitchen. The lounge has large bay windows, with cosy sofas to unwind in. For those who love to cook the kitchen has everything you could wish for, perhaps treat your loved ones to a dinner using some freshly caught local seafood for a night in to remember.
Downstairs to the lower ground floor you are sure to be delighted with the spacious dining room, which doubles as a social area complete with a pool table/ping pong table, bar stools, a drinks fridge, TV and glass sliding doors which open onto a quirky enclosed yard, with a seating area. This room is perfect for entertaining.

Up on the first floor you have the master double bedroom, with a chandelier as well as a chaise lounge adding that touch of luxury. There is a well-presented bathroom with a shower over the bath as well as a convenient utility room, with a washing machine and drying rails. At the top of the property on the top floor you have both a twin and a double bedroom, making this a great choice for families as well as friends travelling together.
The location of Ruffles is ideal for exploring Whitby, and coffee shops, eateries, traditional pubs, and the famous swing bridge are just a short stroll away. On the old side of the town across the harbour you have the famous 199 steps up to the abbey, where Bram Stoker’s beast fled the shipwreck in the novel ‘Dracula’, as well as the sandy Tate Hill Beach. On this side of the harbour the town is more modern, with arcades to entertain children as well as trendy bars and restaurants. Here the beach stretches for miles, as far as the beautiful little village of Sandsend, with golden sand, rock pools and fossil hunting to enjoy. Captain Cook’s replica ship, the Endeavour, is moored up in Whitby; you also have steam trains winding their way through the surrounding North York Moors National Park.

There is always something happening in Whitby, from Goth festivals to live music and regattas. Keep an eye on the busy year-round calendar to see what’s happening during your holiday.
For those who want to venture further, there are many hidden gems along the Yorkshire Coast, from picturesque Runswick Bay to Staithes, each with its own story of piracy and smugglers. The famous Cleveland Way hiking trail snakes along the coastline, and the Cinder Track drops down into Robin Hood’s Bay for a leisurely stroll; or hop onto a boat for the chance glimpse the dolphins and seals that frequent our coastline. Nearby Scarborough is a traditional seaside resort and has many attractions for families including a waterpark, Sea Life Centre and Peasholm Park, as well as the two large bays. Further afield is the theme park, Flamingo Land, and the walled city of York with its Jorvik Viking Centre, the National Railway Museum, minster and a myriad of shops and bars. Beach ¾ mil
