We've been busy over the last couple of weeks. The cottage has been spring cleaned from top to bottom, the paintwork refreshed, curtains washed, plants re-potted, repairs carried out and items updated. Everything is ready for the first visitors of the new season

The sun came out today, even though it was a bit chilly and the snowdrops are popping up and will be flowering again shortly. A sure sign that Spring is on the way!

2016

07/12/2015

Well here we are - another New Year. What will this year have in store for us? Will we stick to our New Year Resolutions??

We have been lucky over the last month as there's been little heavy rain compared with other places in the country - so no flooding! However the old year went out with a bang - literally! The high winds blew off some of our roof ridge tiles which then fell down on the kitchen roof, breaking those tiles as well. This was on our house - the holiday cottage went unscathed. So the builders will be here next week to make repairs - weather permitting of course.

We don't get many bookings in early January, so I've just started the annual spring clean. Everything is stripped back and washed, cleaned, repaired where necessary. Inside looks completely different at the moment to how visitors see it on arrival. Just a couple of weeks and everything will be back to normal and ready for the first bookings of the season.

This is my new Christmas tree plantation!! I've dug over the patch of ground where the old green caravan stood. The trees have been grown from seed, then grown on in pots for some years. They are well past being planted out - if they'd been left any longer, I would have had a collection of Bonsai Christmas trees. Anyway, hopefully they will start to grow into proper trees now. Watch this space!!

This old photograph of Ruswarp will be 80-90 years old and shows the road bridge across the river. This was washed away in floods in the early 1930s and the current bridge was built in its place in 1936. There is a plaque on the bridge to this effect. You can see the railway bridge, just as it is today. In the background there is the church and vicarage and the Bridge Inn at the far side of the bridge with the Station Master's house to the right. In the foreground the white cottage is Waterloo Cottage located on the back road into Whitby. Railway Cottages are just off the left hand side of the photo. Nothing has changed too much since that time!

Dreary November

03/11/2015

What a wet dreary month November is turning out to be!

Just the time to be thinking about a pre-Christmas break - a change of scenery. The shops are brightly decorated with seasonal goodies and Santa is beginning his personal appearances in many locations around the Whitby area (often accompanied by his reindeer).

Take advantage of our 3 for 2 night breaks - weekend or mid-week - for a bit of rest & relaxation plus retail therapy before the stresses of Christmas take over. Just call (01947 603801) or email (joan@railwaycottages.co.uk) to reserve your dates.

Christmas Market

03/11/2015

Whitby Christmas Market is coming soon - 27-29 November. An ideal opportunity to get that special gift. Whitby has lots of unique, independent shops and all are stocking up for the festive season. Book one of our 3 for 2 options and enjoy a magical Christmas shopping break.
