  • "Excellent lodge, warm and clean and had everything needed for our stay."

    Very comfortable and we were able to relax and enjoy with just the birds singing. Lovely area with lots to see and do.

  • "We had a lovely week in Bluebell Lodge."

    The Lodge is so luxurious and has everything yiu need we didn't want to go Home. Gargrave is the perfect location for visiting places like Malham, Skipton and Bolton Abbey. Will definately be back. This is our second visit to Milton Park but a different Lodge.

  • "A wonderful lodge with everything we needed."

    We would love to stay there again sometime in the future. Your listing was only wrong in one regard - there are now electric car charging points in the village car park in Gargrave!

  • "Bluebell Lodge ticked all the boxes when reading the summary online."

    However it was a surprise finding that there was no WiFi. I had to use costly mobile data to logon to my mobile. Also there were no rubber bathmats or extra loo rolls which would have easily been rectified. Comfort is paramount after all when away from home. The design and thought that has gone into the construction of the lodge is impressive and was very much appreciated.

    Absolutely beautiful.

  • "We had a fantastic relaxing holiday."

    Bluebell lodge is beautifully crafted with first class fixtures and fittings. On arrival the lodge was warm and welcoming, with lamps and skirting lights switched on, which was a lovely touch. Tea bags and soaps were also very welcome after a journey and everywhere was spotlessly clean. This is such a peaceful spot with beautiful walks. Absolutely perfect. We didn't want to leave!

  • "Comfortable lodge with excellent beds and bedlinen."

    Good supply of mugs, glasses and kitchen utensils. Good position for visiting area, also good local pub and shop. The unexpected separate utility room was great for washing, drying and extra storage. A few minor additions would have enhanced the stay:- larger dinner plates or bowls(only smallish plates and small bowls); oven gloves; a fan (we were extremely hot and uncomfortable some days); an umbrella on the decking area,;something to open the sky light in kitchen area; a few hooks, especially in bathroom - and less minor but not made clear in description - WI-FI.

  • "No WiFi. Patio decking, table & chairs, handrails and steps, were covered in bird droppings."

    To mark us down for cleanliness because there were bird droppings on the outside decked area is totally unreasonable. You were staying in a woodland, that lodge is surrounded by trees. We clean these every change over but by the time guests arrive birds can poo on it again. Property Owner

  • "Very well equipped and comfortable property in first class condition Nice quiet location convenient for travel elsewhere."

    Verandah garden table and seating could do with a sun umbrella. On hot days, lounge would benefit from a fan (although the bedrooms stay cool). Would definitely visit again.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Bluebell Lodge."

    It is a light and spacious, very comfortable, well equipped, warm and welcoming lodge. The site is lovely and quiet with plenty of bird life and relaxing to both see and hear! It is also just a short walk into the centre of Gargrave too. It is certainly a place we will return to.

  • "A very pleasant lodge with good facilities."

    We enjoyed our stay, finding it quite comfortable. As usually provided in Sykes cottages, it would have been nice to have had a welcome pack with a little milk and a few biscuits, but we found tea bags and a little coffee, which was appreciated. The place really needs to have wi fi. Also bath and shower mats, as it was easy to slip. But a place with good potential.
