  • "Upon arrival, it was the small touches that meant so much, like the milk, teabags, coffee and sugar, the biscuits and the fresh eggs."

    The lodge was so welcoming and the additional touches, such as the towels and the water bowl for our dog were very much appreciated. The views were stunning and the surroundings were so peaceful, except for the occasional sounds of the sheep or cows. My husband and I saw the lambs wandering about so asked the hosts if we could meet them and, not only did we meet those lambs, but the hosts took us to see the newborn lambs with their mothers. We had a truly magical stay and didn’t want to leave. We can’t wait to visit again soon!

  • "Lovely accommodation and owners."

    Felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. Very comfortable with everything well maintained. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the lambs provided on tap entertainment whilst we enjoyed drinks outside. There is also a rich array of birds to watch. If you want to get away from it all would thoroughly recommend. Beaches and places to eat and drink are only a short drive away, there are also a wide choice of walks that can be enjoyed in the area. Thank you for a great break.

    It is set in beautiful surroundings and is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing time. It is very clean and very well presented with everything provided that you would need for your stay. The owners thoughtfully left biscuits, eggs and milk for us which was a lovely touch. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Everything you need. Wonderful location. Craters in a very long drive were a challenge, but it is a working farm so might expect this. Might give location of nearest shop as is very isolated. Would love to come again.

  • "Although the lodge is lovely we didn't find it as comfortable as we thought it looked on the pictures,maybe a recliner sofa would be better,and the kitchen chairs would be better with cushions on them."

    Also the flooring needs replacing if you are not steady on your feet.And maybe some sort of shelving in the shower.

    Peaceful, comfortable, clean, with everything you need and lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Thirley Beck Farm and lodge are well placed for travel to Whitby, Robin Hood's bay, Pickering, Filey, and Scarborough.

  • "Such a beautiful place to stay, it is on a farm, so you just need to be aware you are driving down a farm track, but it's not a problem."

    We loved our stay and the views were beautiful. If I had to make any comment at all it would be, that it was very cold during our stay, and although the heating was perfect just having a net on the sliding doors made it feel very cold sitting by it, I understand it's for the views, but maybe some simple tab top curtains would have blocked the cold coming from the glass! But it's a minor point. Spotlessly clean and comfy, brilliant cooker and microwave. The farm eggs supplied along with the milk and biscuits were lovely to walk into after a long drive. Highly recommend staying here. Close to Scarborough and easy to get to Whitby. A lovely smile and welcome when we arrived. Overall no complaints at all. We LOVED our stay. And will definitely go back.

    The lodge is st in an amazing position and is cosy and comfortable. The owner clearly takes a lot of pride in the property, it was so welcoming with lots of little homely touches. I really couldn't fault it at all. The owner is welcoming and informative but not intrusive and I was left to enjoy a peaceful stay. The countryside surrounding the lodge is absolutely lovely for walking and I was happy to leave the car behind and walk to beautiful views andfollow peaceful paths. I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and hope to be able to visit again in the future.

  • "Firstly the entry into the farm where the lodge was located was not clear,a small sign which is not clear stood next to it never mind driving by in a car."

    Second is the farm track from the road to the lodge,being a farm its understandable its got the odd pothole but this needs to be stated in the listing,anyone with a low slung car with sport suspension would not want to drive on that surface too often,if i had known about it i would have picked a different property. Third,listing said includes towels,none were provided, we had to buy some when out the first day. The property itself was lovely and peaceful place to spend a few days but i could not recommend this property for the reasons stated above.

    the lodge was complete with everything you could ask for,It is very well presented and very tastefully decorated, a real homely feel from the outset, Right down to the fresh milk, luxury biscuits and even eggs fresh from the farm that Tim and Hayley so generously provided. The Lodge itself is perfectly situated to make exploring very easy, it is close enough to Whitby and Scarborough to just pop in to town shopping sightseeing etc, yet far enough away to be perfectly tranquil and quite possibly the most peaceful area I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The experience of being gently woken in the morning by the multitude of wild birds singing is something I shall treasure and remember for ever, simply beautiful!!!!! I have no doubt in my mind we shall return and stay again and we would award "Thirley Beck Lodge" and Tim & Hayley 15/10 they have really made this a winner in our minds.
