Helpful owners who responded to a small issues we had immediately. Wish we could have stayed longer. Reviewed by Sharon5.0★Nov 2023 "Excellent holiday home with excellent attention to detail." Location is ideal to get away from everything but close enough to amenities when you need them. Visited many historic buildings and beautiful gardens so couldn’t ask for a better stay. Reviewed by Trudy5.0★Oct 2023 "Spotlessly clean." Well equipped. Everything we could have needed and more. The welcome pack was indeed welcome with all sorts of goodies and a bottle of good red wine to boot. One fine weather day when we went to the Bird of Prey sanctuary and saw the star attraction, a sea eagle escape and soar to over a thousand feet Amazing. Many thanks for a fantastic stay.

The smoke detector started to warn us the battery was low and a quick phone call and battery replaced. So we have had a no fuss no worries stay again in the comfort of knowing how much the owners care and their attention to detail down to the welcome pack provided. The views from the decking are second to none.

Reviewed by Jane5.0★Aug 2023 "This was our second visit to valley view and it did not disappoint." The lodge itself has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The surroundings area is beautiful and the location is perfect for visiting Whitby, York, Scarborough and the likes of flamingo land and light water valley. Danny and Vicky go above and beyond to make sure you know how to get them if you need them at the same time as leaving you to enjoy your holiday. Thank you again for another lovely stay.

It was extremely well equipped and we were very grateful for the very generous hamper on our arrival. Reviewed by Jonathan5.0★Sep 2022 "I have never stayed in a Lodge before and was very happy once I arrived It had everything you would need and more the little box on the worktop full of cake wine eggs and more was a very nice touch ." the view was stunning and the place it self was peaceful . All the rooms were clean and the location was ideal for my stay as I wanted to see what Yorkshire had to offer . Should I ever visit the area again i would 100% stay there again a lot of thought had gone into making the Lodge feel like home Really enjoyed my stay shame I had to leave and go back home .. Reviewed by Alun5.0★Sep 2022 "A fabulous little lodge." Fitted and furnished to a very high standard, fantastic views over fields, quiet, relaxing scenery. A very generous welcome pack of goodies as well as milk in fridge and tea, coffee and sugar in cupboard, plus a text from the owner the day before, asking if we'd prefer red or white wine! Would return in a heartbeat, especially if we had the same great weather. A superb, cosy base. Maybe another lounge chair to comfortably accommodate four adults, or even a two seater sofa instead of the chairs. Was great for us two though. Reviewed by Alison5.0★Aug 2022 "Spotlessly clean, very well equipped, very comfortable beds / sofa, and in a nice tasteful and modern decor." We had no need to meet with the owner, but communications with them via txt message were very helpful and very prompt. Should we have had any issues, i have no doubt they'd have been dealt with quickly. Situated on a quiet row of cabins, on the outer southern edge of Nawton, we found the cabin a great place for a break. Great views to the south over the fields. It was chosen for being more or less central to everywhere we had intended to visit - National Bird of Prey Centre, York, Lightwater Valley / Flamingo Land, Whitby, Scarborough, York Outlets, Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington etc. Everything within an hours drive, mainly on lovely country roads, the route past Castle Howard being particularly fun to drive along, and the drive over the moors to Whitby being very picturesque. Well equipped cabin with dishwasher, toaster, microwave, double oven / grill with hob, tall fridge freezer (lots of space in both - should you need freeze anything), shower, toilet (obviously!), 2 very comfortable double beds, smart TV (remember to log out of Netflix etc before you leave!), excellent wifi coverage as well - which can be a deal breaker for a lot of people (ourselves included) these days, so worthy of a mention. I sat outside on the decking watching MOTD whilst doing some star photography, with no loss of signal. It's more or less in "dark sky" country, which is great, assuming the weather stays clear. Very comfy sofa and swivel chair. Breakfast bar with stools and large patio table / chairs outside should you wish to dine out there, which we did a couple of times. Towels and bedding are provided, but if you need larger towels for a trip to the sea, or the nearby outdoor pool in Helmsley you'll need bring your own. Speaking of the outdoor pool - it's very popular and you'll need book well in advance - we left it too late and didn't get a slot - you'll need book online. Plenty space to park - enough room for 2 cars if needed, one either side of the cabin. There's a Co-Op in Helmsley, and another larger one in Kirkbymoorside, and an Lidl in Pickering. In Nawton we tried the Fusion Spice Indian restaurant which was excellent, and we had wanted to try the Fish & Chip shop but that was cash only, so we had to change our plans. There's a good play area next to the cricket ground right at the end of the street you turn into, should you have children - swings, assault course thing, zip wire etc - the usual things. They were playing cricket there early evening the 3 times we visited as well, should that be of interest. Welcome pack left out for us with sausage / bacon & eggs, chocolate cake, bottle of wine and soft drink for our daughter and some cartridges for the Nespresso machine. Enough to get you started, and a lovely gesture. Bird feeder on the decking is fun to watch whilst having breakfast. Overall a great cabin, in a great very quiet central (for us!) location. Would hope to visit again. Many thanks. Reviewed by Craig5.0★Aug 2022 "Owl Lodge exceeded expectations for us." It is so well equipped and tastefully decorated which made for a thoroughly relaxing stay. The quiet setting yet close to the village and easy access to the surrounding area was perfect for us.

Welcoming box of food exceptional and the Wifi is very good. A colander and egg-cups would be a welcome addition to the kitchen equipment. We had a lovely time there. Reviewed by Paul4.7★Sep 2021 "We stayed in Owl Lodgeand what a great place to stay." .. We are two best friends having a girls getaway and were delighted to stay here. There was nothing that had not been thought of from the Welcome Pack to the effortless entry on arrival. No noisy traffic passing was an asset along with the view and watching the many varieties of birds visiting the bird table whilst eating outside or through the window was great entertainment every morning. Great communication, equipped to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and in an ideal location to explore North Yorkshire... Our week has sped past!! Hayley and Sophie fae Scotland!! Reviewed by Hayley5.0★Sep 2021 "We love the lodge." The host was very gracious to provide a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge and a food basket.
