“Lovely location, Comfortable (but definitely not stylish) Cottage”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We loved the location of this cottage, in a valley in the Yorkshire National Park. It felt really remote and there were great walks nearby. At night it was very dark and quiet, which is just what we were hoping for. There were some really nice touches in this cottage, like a basket of free logs for the wood burner, recipe books, a hand blender and lots of beautiful white china plates. There was also a Christmas tree. The master bedroom was triple aspect, had a Christmas themed duvet cover and cushions, a sofa and a cot in it. There were a lot of useful things in the cottage, if you have young children.
However, parts of the cottage were very dated, particularly the sitting room and kitchen.
The kitchen work surfaces were tiled and grouted, and the cooker was very old.
There is only one shower in this property (downstairs) and the water pressure is not good, so getting everyone showered in the morning is not possible.
The downstairs bedroom was definitely more suited to being used as a playroom rather than a bedroom as access to it is through the living room.
The cottage has old cuddly toys in nearly every room.

“Perfect Family Holiday Home”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved staying at Moles House. It was spacious, well maintained and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped with more than enough equipment and utensils etc for 2 families. We would thoroughly recommend the area which has so much to see and do.

“Very comfortable holiday home in a great location”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful Family holiday in the Yorkshire Moors based at Moles House. The rooms are very comfortable and homely, perfectly situated above the River Esk, with two friendly pubs in the village (one across stepping stones). It's only 15 mins drive from Whitby and close to excellent walks up and down the Esk Valley. There are superb walks close by from Goathland and Grosmont for the railway. Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick are also very close for more beaches. It's a place we'd go back to.

“Amazing views, Fantastic holiday!!”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We came to Moles house in the half term and we loved it! We visited Dalby Forest and went cycling, we were also very lucky to go to Whitby Abbey when it was illuminated to watch the play of dracula. The views from the house were spectacular and the local pubs were great, we would definitely come back!!

“An impeccably maintained house in a pretty Yorkshire village”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Moles House in July 2015, and enjoyed it very much. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. We felt very much at home, and with two teenagers there was plenty of room. Everything was well maintained both inside and outside. The garden in the front was attractive, and there was a private patio area at the back, with a barbeque. The solarium off the kitchen was a good place to have meals.
The village of Egton Bridge is pretty, but there are no shops; food has to be brought in. On the other hand Whitby is not far away.
