It was so peaceful and much thought has gone into the planting of an amazing variety of shrubs and trees around the lodge, with a large pond on which was nesting a pair of moorhens. The owner has sited a bird table with feeders on the veranda which was visited regularly by many birds, including the moorhen and a squirrel . The owners were very helpful and pleasant. Also well situated for local attractions. Will go there again. . Reviewed by ValerieMay 2022 "On entering the cottage the appearance was fair but did not smell clean or fresh\ entering." The bedding was to be desired and appeared old and un ironed. The pillows were old dirty and thin, and the bed had 3 mattress topers. Didn't smell fresh at all. Bathroom en -suite toilet brush was disgusting holder was black inside slip matt in shower needs replacing. Pots and pans need a lot to be desired and we had to wash the pots and glasses before use. Some of the pans were unusable(roasting pan was beyond using) burnt food on the inside. It didn't look like the place had been dusted. Outside furniture table paint was peeling off , no parasol and only 2 chairs that went with the table. Although the location was idyllic the lodge left us very disappointed as we had been looking forward to going their for 2 years. We shall not be returning their again. Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to have received your comments, and if these issues had been reported during your stay, we would have done all we could to ensure that you were happy and comfortable for the duration of your stay. Please note, Sykes are open 7 days a week, and can also be contacted outside of office hours to ensure each guest is happy with their reservation. For the assurance of any future guests, there is a comments book on display in the lodge, which we encourage people to use. 99% of the guests have left their responses, which have been overwhelmingly positive about their holiday. We were very lucky to have had a visit from Professor David Bellamy when developing the site. His suggestions greatly enhanced the immediate environment which has been appreciated by guests to the park. Property Owner Reviewed by RonaldMay 2022 "Great location for visiting the area." The lodge is set in peaceful surroundings and we loved watching the wildlife. After reading other reviews, we expected the driveway leading to the property to be a lot worse than it was, we have a Fiesta & found it to be ok if we took it steady. On arrival there was a welcome pack of milk, butter, eggs, fresh bread & cookies. Reviewed by DanielOct 2021 "Yes this is the 3rd time i have used Sykes to book a holiday." .....It will be the last time. They are just an un-contactable, ripoff company. They charge to book the holiday, they charge to change a date, they charge a large amount to the owners of the properties, They will even charge you to return any items you inadvertently leave behind on leaving a property. Basically they sit on their butts and fleece as much as they can out of everyone.....Not from me anymore. Reviewed by AllanSep 2021 "We really had a great holiday staying at Bulmer Farm Lodge." It is situated in a super location, lovely and peaceful with great views and wildlife on your doorstep. It was also convenient for a lot of attractions in the area like Eden Camp & Flamingoland. Phil & Sam were perfect hosts, very helpful and friendly. We also highly recommend trying Phil’s meals, they were delicious. Reviewed by VandaSep 2021 "The lodge is comfortable and the suroundings are great." I would recomend it for a peacefull break. There is lots to do in the area and the wildlife is fantastic. Phil and Sam could not have made us more welcome. They can provide realy nice food if required, I would recomend that you try it. We have been there before and will go back next year. Five stars from us. Reviewed by BrianSep 2021 "On the way to the property the lane is full of pot holes,which need to be filled in."

Reviewed by JaneAug 2021 "Both my daughters and I had a very relaxing holiday." The weather was lovely and Phil and Sam couldn't of done more to make us welcome,even taking our cases in when we arrived.Plenty of wildlife around especially the ducks and their chick's.Lovely villages and towns to visit.Would recommend this lodge for a chilled and relaxing holiday. Reviewed by JeanJul 2021 "This is a very comfortable lodge in a lovely quiet area." Ideal for a relaxing getaway whilst still being close enough to amenities. Reviewed by PeterJul 2021 "Was a great place for a quiet relaxing holiday." We loved watching and listening to the birds at the bird feeder on the deck. Many thanks to Phil and Sam who made sure that we had everything that we needed. The only negative was the potholes on the access road so you just have to take it very slowly. Reviewed by MalcolmJun 2021 "Bulmer lodge was very comfortable and spacious." Our only criticism was the motley collection of crockery, wine glasses and saucepans. We didn't so much mind that they were a mishmash of items, but there just wasn't enough of it. You need at least 8 items of each for a family of four, otherwise you have to run the dishwasher after every meal which is a waste of water and electricity. Reviewed by DerekJun 2021 ""Fantastic!" " It lived up to expectations completely and we were reluctant to leave. We would've gladly stayed for another week if it had been available. So peaceful and private, and you are so warmly welcomed and looked after. Reviewed by StephenMay 2021 "We enjoyed the quietness and seclusion of the lodge." .....The owners were very helpful and friendly. They presented us with a welcome pack on arrival containing basic essentials like butter milk etc. The surrounding area was very flat and rural, with plenty of bird life etc. The weather could have been better, but thats beyond anyones control. One small niggle was the access road leading down to the farm....It was heavily potholed and not very friendly on our cars suspension. Reviewed by AllanOct 2020 "Whenever something exceeds your expectations, it's bound to be really good." Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and in these covid times the cleaning was most excellent Reviewed by NormanOct 2020 "Everything was perfect , home from home , if one wants a peaceful location , this is the place , watching the stars with no light pollution was fantastic and not forgetting the wildlife i."

Phil & Sam were great hosts and the in house catering was a definate plus we didnt anticipate but well worth the modest cost having restuarant quality food served in the lodge was fabulous. Will look forward to a return visit for sure Reviewed by JaneSep 2020 "This is a brilliant gem more than met our expectations." Very friendly and helpful, will certainly go back. Reviewed by BrianSep 2020 "We were very happy with the lodge." The surroundings were an excellent setting to sit and enjoy peace and quiet on the veranda.

Reviewed by IainJul 2020 "Quiet place, where you can reconnect with yourself and nature." Home made organic food available. Reviewed by GrzegorzOct 2019 "What a lovely holiday we had - peace, quiet with beautiful views." The lodge was immaculate with a very thoughtful welcome pack waiting for us with instructions to call on the owner for 'anything' at all that we needed. The lodge is perfectly placed for visits to the seaside or just to have a look around neighbouring villages like Malton and Pickering. The only fault, well if it could be called a fault, was the fact that we couldn't find any literature regarding the use of the appliances i.e. dishwasher, microwave and oven. Well done Bulmer Farm Lodge Reviewed by MargaretteOct 2019 "If you want peace and quiet come here, the lodge is set in beautifully maintained gardens with lovely views across fields next to a wildlife pond with a balcony." The inside is very spacious with two double sized bedrooms an on suite and main bathroom, it was very clean throughout we thought we were the first guests as it all seemed so new, the owner was very nice and said if we had any special requests he would organise them for us and that he was a chef and could cook for us a special meal if we wished which sounded very tempting. We also had milk from the farm, bread and butter, tea and coffee, and plums and apples from the trees. The double bed was quite firm but for us it was okay. We visited Castle Howard and the Walled Gardens at Scampston which we actually preferred, Malton is worth visiting if you are a foodie. We also walked both bays along the seafront at Scarborough and through Peasholm Park.
