“Very comfortable holiday home in a great location”

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 November 4, 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”

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.

A comfortable, cosy family holiday home situated in a gorgeous setting. Two lovely pubs within staggering distance (one at the other side of a charming stroll across stepping stones) and a train station on your doorstep to explore the surrounding area. We arrived late Friday afternoon for a long weekend and the car didn't move for 3 days! Great walk to Grosmont to see the steam engines. Can't recommend this fully equipped venue highly enough.
