Thetford, United Kingdom
Fabulous Family Cottage
We stayed here with my baby. The cottage is extremely family friendly with everything I could think of needing for a holiday with a baby or child - from children's cooking gear to baby wipes. The cottage has a very warm feel, everything has been thought through to make the stay very comfortable for everyone with lots of attention to detail (like a spare sewing kit, puncture repair kit, meals in the freezer etc). The inside decor is beautiful. I would strongly recommend this cottage and would love to visit again.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Excellent property in a lovely location.
We stayed at Easthorpe in October 2012 and had an excellent week. The property is immaculate, with everything you could need. We visited Malton for pub teas, York for shopping, and the lovely coast for walks. Highly recommend this property if you are looking for a clean, manageable and cosy place to stay in Yorkshire with good access to the area.
best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in
Fantastic value for money,as cottage is so well equipped and so warm and comfortable.Possibly the cleanest and tidiest cottage we have ever stayed in and such a delightful garden to sit in as well.
Checking in was easy,thanks to instructions emailed to us before arrival, and welcome pack of milk,tea and homemade cake and jam, as well as local newspaper was very thoughtful.
Ideally located for many attractions such as Castle Howard, Sutton Bank, and many others,as well as good public transport links in Malton to go further afield such as York, Whitby and Scarborough,all worth a visit.
The service we received from Rebecca, the owner, and her staff was first class and very efficient and friendly,if there were any problems during your stay,they were only a telephone call away.
A home from home, every intention of returning in future
We (me, my wife & 2 kids aged 4 & 2) stayed at Easthorpe Lodge for a week and were not disappointed. The cottage is well furnished and equipped to an excellent standard - we wanted for nothing during our stay. Rebecca, the owner, has obviously spent a great deal of time & effort making sure that there is everything you could need in the cottage and was a very attentive host, making sure everything was to our satisfaction. We were lucky with the weather during our week so were out exploring Yorkshire most days, however there were lots of toys & games for the kids if the weather had turned wet. There was also a huge amount of tourist information in the cottage, including recommendations for local eateries.
In all, I would highly recommend a stay at Easthorpe Lodge and would hope to return in the not too distant future.

Hidden Gem !!!
Very well appointed cottage. Owner had thought of everything.
Rebecca easily accessible (Mobile phone provided).
Great cottage for all ages, especially if you have children as the garage is stuffed full of really good toys.
However, if you like board games and jigsaws - plenty in bedroom cupboard.
Extremely comfortable beds!!!
Great kitchen with all mod cons.
Informative tourist information on kitchen windowsill.
Lots to do in the area - Eden Camp, Park and Ride to York, Betty's teashop in York, great fish and chip shop in Malton,lots of pretty local villages to explore.

This is the sort of country cottage with a rose garden that you
This is an exceptionally well-equipped cottage that features a beautiful garden in which to enjoy a barbeque. Since it is all on one level and has only two steps at the entrance, it is ideal for a person with limited mobility. There are country walks across the lane and picturesque villages, stately homes, and gardens within 5-15 minutes' drive, not to mention the Yorkshire moors and coast only a little further away.
A really family-friendly place to stay
This is a lovely cottage, well-placed for visiting York and North Yorkshire. Very clean and extremely well-equipped with all you could need. Great care has been taken to provide for children: books, games, garden toys, colouring stuff. For very young children lots of equipment is provided such as monitor, cupboard locks, gate padlock, children's crockery and cutlery, real cot, booster seats etc. The owner visited us and was available on the phone if we needed help(although we didn't). Very thoughtful touches too such as soap, hand lotion, clock radios in both rooms - these are extras you don't get everywhere. Very reasonable rates too.
Lovely peaceful stay
We stayed here as we were attending a wedding at Castle Howard. Perfect peaceful location with everything that you could need. Would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit NorthYorks and surrounding areas.
Rebecca called to welcome us and made sure that we had everything that we needed.
One word..excellent on all accounts.Rebecca couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage is fully equipped and warm(we went in april). Comfy beds.. everything to make you feel "home from home" Lots of extras and a nice garden. Peaceful location and easy to find. Great for country and coast.
Response from Rebecca - 04/27/2012
Thank you so much for your positive review on Flipkey, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope to be able to welcome you back again in the future.
We only stayed for 2 nights but it was a fantastic experience. Every amenity you could think of and warm cosy. So near to all the local attractions, countryside, towns, villages and coast. Would recommend this to anyone.
Response from Rebecca - 04/27/2012

Very simple and friendly booking with lots of help and advice.
Extremely well equipped and well appointed accommodation including garaging.
A peaceful location that is easy to get to and very well placed for visiting the local area and its many attractions.
A wonderful, restful retreat from a busy world. This was our second stay at Easthorpe and we will return!

The cottage was very well equipped with lots of thought given to every need. An ideal base for exploring many areas. Very comfortable. Would definitly return

brill cottage great location rebecca very helpful in everyway nice weeks holiday
First rate accomodation
This is our second visit to Eastthorpe Lodge and each visit has been first class. All facilities are bright and clean and much care has been taken to ensure a pleasant stay. Cleanliness is paramount.
Excellent value for money and fantastic location
We stayed here with parents and our baby whilst attending a wedding at Castle Howard. The cottage is ideally located to explore all the many nearby attractions but is also well equipped to stay in if required.
Everything you need is in the cottage which is in a great condition and there are thoughtful extras also provided on arrival. I would highly recommend this accommodation, we had a lovely weekend, and would definitely visit again.

Home from home
This was our first stay at the lodge and we were not disappointed the cottage is tastefully decorated and well equipped. The garden area is ideal for barbeque ( weather permitting ) The property is located in the countryside in a quiet location with local shops and supermarket only a few minutes away by car, Ideally located for the various attractions in and around north yorkshire, With Whitby, Scarborough and York only a short drive away, I would highly recommend this cottage, I will be definately be staying here again.
Response from Rebecca - 09/05/2011
Thank you for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back next year.
Boston, United Kingdom
Charming, Clean and Cosy
In my opinion these three words sum up Easthorpe Lodge. When we arrived with our two grandchildren we felt completely at home. The cottage is tastefully decorated, extremely well equipped and exceptionally clean. Our grandchildren were so excited to discover all the board games in the cupboard and the outdoor games in the garage. The cottage is in lovely countryside surroundings with a cottage style garden too. We only stayed 3 nights but would love to have stayed longer. The location is great for exploring North Yorkshire, and Malton, just 5 minutes away by car, is a very nice village with plenty of individual shops, nice restaurants and a railway station to Scarborough or York.
The best ever!
We were lucky enough to visit Easthorpe Lodge in November/December 2010 and it was, witrhout doubt, the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in. The weather was not as kind to us and we were snowed in for nearly two weeks but I really cannot think of anywhere nicer to be stuck in.
The cottage was extremely well furnished and equipped and was very warm and cosy. I cannot rate this highly enough - a wonderful experience...thank you
Isle of Wight
The cottage with everything
This cottage is really a must. It has been tastefully furnished and is equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay, and you will need to relax after visiting all the many attractions that are close at hand. Ideal for couples or families with children, there's even room for the children to play in a covered area if the weather prevents enjoying the lovely garden.
Great for Families - We'll be back!
Easthorpe Lodge was everything we were hoping for and more - beautiful setting, lovely house with all mod cons and Rebecca anticipated our every need. Great location for our son to indulge in his love of trains with both the NRM at York and Nymr at Pickering being so close by. Other big hits were the adventure playground at Castle Howard and another lovely day at Lockton, 5 miles from Pickering. We certainly hope to return in the future, thanks Rebecca!

Vet nice property, spacious and well looked after.
Stayed here with my family (2 adults, 2 young children), property was ideal fo us, with plenty of room and extremely well looked after. Well equipped with everything you may need.
The property is located in the country with no other properties anwhere near, and on very quiet road. A short drive into Malton where there is a supermarket and plenty of small shops.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet country cottage, and very suitable for a family holiday.
Leighton Buzzard, United Kingdom
Lovely comfortable cottage, great base to visit surrounding area
Lovely cottage in quiet surroundings, comfortable and well equipped. Covered area for kids to play during any wet days, nice selection of games to keep the children enteretained indoors and outdoors. The cottage is set in lovely surroundings and the gardens are well kept and tidy. Ideal base for visiting Thirsk, York and the coastal resorts eg Scarborough, Whitby, Bridlington and Pickering. Local amenities included various eateries with various price ranges to accommodate all purses, supermarket close by to do the food shop for the week. Lovely cafe close to one of the supermarkets did full english breakfast, which was ideal on our last day to allow us to make the most of the day before returning home. Thoroughly recommend a stay in this delightful and well equipped cottage. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

It made our Christmas feel special
I had never been away for Christmas before, but staying in this lodge was wonderful. The location is peaceful and quiet. The scenery is beautiful and walking in the snow just added to the ambience. The lodge is warm and welcoming, It is modern but sensitively furnished to create rustic charm. The kitchen is a dream with all the cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery to a superior standard. The lodge had Christmas decorations, small tree's etc for us which helped to create a home from home. We even had a welcome pack which after a long drive was a sight for sore eye's. The whole lodge is clean, tidy and very comfortable. We would certainly stay in this cottage again.

Third visit - excellent as ever!
This is the third time we have visited Easthorpe Lodge and each time it has been first class. The cottage is clean and has everthing you need whilst away from home. It is in an excellent location with easy access to Malton, Pickering and the coast. The off road parking/garage is a big bonus. We will definitely be visiting again.
Excellent cottage -- real home from home
We have been staying in cottages over the New Year period for the last 12 years. Easthorpe Lodge is a little gem that we found last year. The lodge is superb, it is a good size, extremely clean, warm and very comfortable. The owner has thought of everything with a lot of love and care, every mod con is included and the luxury fitted kitchen/dining room is to die for. The attention to detail throughout the property is fantastic and well worthy of the 4* rating it holds. The property is in a lovely area and within easy access for York, Scarborough, Whitby. We used the park and ride in York and Scarborough and found them both easy and reasonable. Malton is a small town nearby with a few small shops and a Morrison's supermarket. We spoilt ourselves and ordered our shopping on line before we left home and Tesco delivered the day we arrived, what more can a girl ask for !! We enjoyed our break and the excellent quality of the lodge so much that we have already rebooked for this year too. Wifi has just been added to the spec of the lodge and our son is delighted. I can truly see us returning here for many years to come as this is the best cottage we have every stayed in, a real home from home.
