Reviews

Excellent, very enjoyable week here in this great house in perfect location. On Sundays, the walk to Glaisdale and lunch in Arncliffe Inn is excellent (large portions) saw Kingfisher nearby along river, fossil hunting on coast. Walking and taking train (esk line) need some extra days

Past Customer,

Comfortable and well equipped cottage. Perfect and peaceful location. We walked locally and in the Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay area. Loved the stepping stones. We visited Egton show -excellent day out. Also Whitby Folk Week. NYM railway is such a scenic day out and we hopped on and off the train at different places. We will recommend Rockley cottage

Warren, E,

Nice and peaceful cottage we enjoyed the garden and the well equipped kitchen.

Previous Customer,

Great cottage. Beyond spotless. A wonderful week of walking. We'll be back again

Lovely time. Excellent well equipped cottage. Everything we could want for our holiday home. Thank you so much. We will return!

Previous Customer,

Lovely, cosy, comfy, well equipped cottage. Arrived in wet, cold, windy weather so the warmth was welcome. Great walks around Danby & Goathland's railway walk. NY moors steam railway is worth a trip on. Two local pubs Horseshoe & Postgate welcome dogs in the bar. Great food at the Postgate. The Witching Post in Egton also allows dogs, all 3 pubs are very friendly. Thank you we enjoyed our stay in this cottage

Previous Customer,

Had a fantastic two weeks been coming to Rockley about 5 years now we have fell in love with the place, we will be here again in November for Pauls birthday. We love the beautiful garden and feeding the birds. Great to see the Woodpecker again. Lovely quiet place very peaceful. The weather has been great too. Two very nice pubs that make you very welcome can't wait to be back.

Sally-Ann & S,

If you are ok climbing the few steep steps to the property and the first floor bedroom, you'll enjoy it here. Lovely property in a lovely location with nice walks. Tesco will deliver if needed.

L C,

Lovely cottage in a lovely village with two nice pubs within easy reach of north yorks moors and Whitby. Will come back here again.

The best cottage we have stayed in - and there have been many. Should be 4 star not 3!

Very clean cottage with everything we needed and a large, well kept garden.

Area Information

Egton Bridge 
Egton Bridge is a charming village situated in between Glaisdale and Grosmont, and eight miles away from the harbour town of "Captain Cook's" Whitby, in a beautiful river setting with ancient stepping stones crossing the Esk. This picturesque village is situated one mile south of Egton, at the bottom of the steep-sided valley on the route of the River Esk Walk. The villages celebrate two annual shows each summer, the Egton Agricultural Show, one of the largest in the country, and the annual Gooseberry Show. Egton Bridge also hosts an annual Postgate Rally in honour of the blessed Nicholas Postgate, a martyr who was born here and was executed for practicing his faith in 1679.
