Manor Cottage is a lovely period house located on the stunning Egton Estate – with its 6000 acres of magnificent woodland, pastures and moorland plus the beautiful manor house – and combines elegance with a cosy atmosphere, perfect for a family holiday. A gorgeous period house located on the magnificent 6000-acre Egton Estate, combining elegance with a cosy feel – light that fire and sit back and relax! – with many original features and antique furniture plus there is fishing available in the nearby Esk. Set in wonderful countryside with many superb walks nearby, it has a superb location in this picturesque village, with its award-winning inns that serve great food.

After a few stressful weeks leading up to our week away, this cottage and the surrounding area was exactly what we needed

The cottage is wonderful, and much bigger than the pictures would suggest. The location was perfect for us too. As a family with small children we were able to do small walks from the doorstep or take a stroll to Grosmont to catch the steam train. Laura, Olly and their lovely children were so welcoming and kind, always there if we needed anything. We definitely intend to return, there’s so much to do there that we felt we barely scratched the surface, and the cottage is a perfect home for us while we explore.

In the corner is a charming writing desk to sit and draft your postcards or just relax and read one of the many local magazines.

The kitchen has views over the courtyard and towards the beautiful grounds of the manor house, and has a deep Belfast sink, electric oven and hob, dishwasher plus a generous tall fridge/freezer. There is a dining area with a French farmhouse table and seating for five people. The property’s many original features includes a ‘pulley maid’, a wooden rack for drying/airing clothes which is perfect for when you come off the beach or after a bracing walk across the moorlands.
First Floor
To the first floor is a wide landing, off which lead three bedrooms; there is a smart double bedroom with a comfortable king-size bed, television and wardrobe. There is also a twin bedroom decorated in shades of blue with full size single beds and a tall boy. The single bedroom, which looks out over the wooded area to the rear, has a charming antique brass bed and an original fireplace (decorative use only) plus a closet. There is a good size house bathroom that has a bath with shower over, WC and hand wash basin.
Outside
The front courtyard area has a table and chairs and a BBQ – a lovely spot for enjoying al fresco dining, whether that’s breakfast in the fresh morning air or drinks after dinner, as the stars start to appear.

Location

WHITBY

Manor Cottage is located in the charming village of Egton Bridge which is on the North East fringe of the North York Moors National Park and surrounded by truly glorious countryside, with the sea, sandy beach and Whitby only 10 minutes drive.

Very convenient spot for a holiday on the edge of Egton village (home to two lovely pubs and a train station) - good walks from house to nearby villages such as Grosmont (steam train, village shop, cafes, gallery)

The cottage itself is very spacious and comfortable - made even more cosy by an easy to use log burning stove in the sitting room and an ample supply of seasoned logs. Charming and helpful hosts live in the adjacent manor house and supplied us with some great DVDs. It was really peaceful - no road noise which is very important for me and you could hear owls calling in the morning. Also beautiful starry skies as there's no light pollution there. Couple of downsides - no washing machine (unless we just couldn't find it) and it was a VERY muddy week with a lot of rain. The kitchen is large but could have been better equipped it was adequate but if you are going to be cooking up a storm every night (that was not us) then you might want to check what's available at the house in case you need to bring anything to supplement what's provided. Having said that the kitchen actually had sharp knives which is very welcome in a holiday let. If you are someone who likes a very well lit place the cottage looks out on the back to woodland so its dappled light and at the front is in a courtyard with a building in front so its not as well lit as some places I've stayed in - this being more noticeable of course in autumn/winter. There is an area at the front with a table, chairs and BBQ which will be lovely in spring/summer and early autumn but there isn't a garden sort of area you can sit in. Having said all this the pluses definitely outweigh the negatives in particular being able to walk out of the front door straight onto footpaths was just perfect and having excellent heating/ endless hot water, a really comfortable sitting room and lovely large bathroom. The local pubs are very good and its a short drive to Whitby (loved the abbey), Robin Hoods Bay (fabulous beach). We also went to Staithes, Richmond and Saltburn (good farmers market and beautiful beach).

Ms Clift
Beautiful cottage in an equally beautiful setting. A great location for exploring the area. The hosts at the property were so welcoming. Even our dog was made to feel so welcome. The cottage is well equipped clean and plenty of hot water! Thank you we will return!
Mrs Hewson
What a beautiful place to spend a holiday. The photographs of the cottage don’t do it justice. A delightful spot, completely relaxing setting and a real sense of getting away from it all. Just the right amount of contact from the owners who gave us all the help we needed.
Mrs Bean
We had a fabulous time in this wonderful cottage, situated in such a beautiful location. The owners were on hand to ensure that everything was fine throughout our stay and were very helpful in pointing us in the direction of things our 4 year old would enjoy. The owners went above and beyond and we felt very well looked after.
Mr Bartlett-rawlings
Beautiful cottage in an absolutely gorgeous setting. The hosts were fantastic, always on hand if we needed anything and very helpful and approachable. The cottage is stunning and very comfortable with everything we needed and set in a quiet pretty village but not too far away from local attractions, great if you want to escape to a more quiet and peaceful place. Beautiful local walks in the country and some great pubs all within walking distance, would definitely stay again. Thanks for a lovely time.
Miss Travers
Had a lovely time at the Manor Cottage. The location is excellent. Great walks straight from the door with local pubs serving great home cooked food. The cottage is comfy and homely. It has all the facilities you need for self catering and the little welcome pack including fresh milk, butter, bread, tea, coffee is a nice touch. Hosts are friendly and welcoming and are on hand if needed. We would definitely stay again and recommend.
Mrs Henderson
We were very charmed by Manor Cottage and Mr and Mrs Foster. The setting was beautiful, the cottage was beautiful and they made us very welcome. My only reservation about giving such high, but truthful praise is that the cottage may not be available when we try to return.
Ms Williams
Perfect holiday for us and our dog.wonderful cottage and grounds.owners are fabulous. Although the village is small and and not a lot of amenities it does have two of the best pubs around the area which serve fantastic Food..The Postgate pub is just a four minute walk from our cottage. What Egton does have is a small train station, right next to the Postgate pub ,perfect for getting into Whitby as parking can be difficult in high season and if you fancy a meal and a drink you don’t have to worry about driving .(cannot hear the trains from the cottage by the way) Great walks from the doorstep of the cottage and I just can’t recommend Manor Cottage enough 5⭐️
Mrs Preston
Great location and property of a good size. Nice to have pubs within walking distance and easy access to Whitby and the moors. Had expected the furnishings to be to a higher standard - usually stay in National Trust or Rural Retreats cottages which are more like a home from home. Could have done with more crockery and glasses in the kitchen.
Ms Ballinger
We wanted a quiet, cosy and charming place for Christmas and we weren't disappointed. We were made very welcome and the cottage easily accommodated our three families in comfort. There's a beautiful log burner in the main living room but to be honest you could just live with the central heating which was more than adequate for the Cottage. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom had amble hot water for much needed showers after a brisk walk in the country. Egton village is well served by both the National Railways and also the North Yorkshire moors railway. If you fancy a walking holiday just hop on a train then hop off at the next stop and walk back ... perfect. Whitby, Pickering and of course Gothland are within easy reach by car or by train. Egton also has a good choice of village pubs (turn right at the top of the cottage and one pub is 50 meters up the road ... what more can you ask for?). The other pubs, further up the hill and in the village, offer a handsome choice of pub meals to a high standard as well as a good selection of local beers !! Watch out for the owners dog ... once you start making a fuss and start stroking it ... it'll sit there for hours lapping up every bit of affection you can give it. The perfect addition to a country house. The Cottage is well situated geographically and offers an uncluttered escape to country with warmth and comfort. Book soon ... we're planning our next visit already. We couldn't fault it. Enjoy.
Neill & Sandy Potts (December 2016)
We were absolutely delighted with Manor cottage, which was very well equipped, and in the most idyllic location. The owners Mr and Mrs Foster were the perfect hosts, they greeted us on our arrival but then left us to enjoy our holiday. My husband is a heritage builder so he loves to stay in cottages which have lots of character and original features . We chose to stay at Egton bridge as we like to dine out and as we have ate at The Wheatsheaf and The Post Gate many times before ,we decided to book Manor cottage as it was near our favourite places to eat , rather than in Whitby where we have stayed for the last 25 years. We also enjoy to walk and there was lots of places to do so right on our doorstop. Also Manor cottage allowed dogs which was very important to us because we like to bring our dog on holiday with us. We will most certainly be booking again to stay at Manor cottage and we will be booking through Yorkshire Coastal Cottages as we could not fault your company in any way. All of your staff were extremely helpful and gave a true and honest description of Manor Cottage so there was no nasty surprises on our arrival.
