    • “Everything you need for a great holiday in a great location.”

    • “Our stay at Heddas Cottage with six adults and 2 dogs (with permission) was brilliant. The cottage was great, a large well equipped kitchen, and very comfortable. The location is superb with great views and close to two pubs in the village. Access to Grossmont and the NYMR within walking distance and Whitby by car. Kath, your meet & greeter is a wealth of knowledge and very amenable to help your stay be the great break you are looking for. The under floor heating is a blessing on cold autum mornings. We didn't need to light the wood burner at all. Overall, a most pleasant cottage well equipped and well worth our 5 star rating.”

    • “Wonderful stay at the cottage .loved to see the chickens scurrying around! Very warm and cosy cottage with everything you could ever want on hand and beautifully decorated.i personally found the bed rather hard in the master bedroom but that was just my preference. One would have been nice to have had directions to the nearest shop for essentials and perhaps the addition of a small carton of milk in the fridge.”

    • “We have recently come back from a weeks holiday and was over the moon with the cottage. It's in a lovely quiet location but within easy access to Whitby via Road or rail. Lovely pubs within walking distance. The cottage itself was extremely well equipped with all the modern cons needed. The cottage is very cosy and had great under floor heating. It was clean and tidy and loved the personal touches. I cannot recommend this cottage enough x x”

About the location


Sleights 5 miles; Whitby 8 miles.

The small village of Egton Bridge lies in the valley alongside the picturesque River Esk, eight miles from Whitby. There are pretty stone cottages surrounded by woodland and an excellent network of public footpaths into the hills and riverside. The two village inns both serve real ales and splendid food with attractive beer gardens. The popular, long distance coast-to-coast walk goes through the village and along the ancient Toll Road leading to Grosmont, the terminus of the North York Moors Railway. Egton Bridge is home to the famous Egton Bridge Gooseberry Show and also the beautiful St. Heddas Church. Being in the heart of the North York Moors, Egton Bridge is also well placed to visit key areas of interest within the National Park and is on the Whitby to Middlesbrough railway line. Whitby is within easy travelling distance and has something for everyone. Egton Bridge is an ideal base for exploring the area.
