  • "Lovely location."

    Shops and pub not . The accommodation was clean and very comfortable, with quiet patio seating to sit and have breakfast or wind down in an evening. The owners are fantastic and there to help with anything if needed.

  • "The Lodge was absolutely perfect, immaculately clean, the facilities and decor were more than we hoped for."

    It is a perfect setting, peaceful and we had a perfect view of the beautiful area from the patio which was nicely furnished with a picnic table, umbrella & Loungers. The Lodge was within walking distance of the Village of Kirkbymoorside which has a number of pubs/restaurants. It is perfectly situated for venturing into the North York Moors or the Coast. Some of the surrounding villages are well worth driving too, especially Helmsley. Would highly recommend, and would definitely return. The dogs loved it too.

  • "Had a fantastic stay in Willow Lodge."

    In fact we booked both Lodges together for all our family. Owner Steve was around to greet us on arrival and was very helpful. The property was spotlessly clean and comfortable and there was a welcome pack waiting for us with cake, crisps, milk and a bottle of fizz, even fresh flowers in the window. A secluded gem with lots of wildlife and beautiful surroundings to relax in. A great base to explore the area with pubs and shops in Kirkbymoorside only a short walk away. Can't wait to go back.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Willow Lodge."

    As a family of 4 adults, with two lively dogs it was perfect for us. Walking distance to pubs and shops, which was handy as we wanted to leave the car some of the time. The grounds around the lodges were not completely enclosed, but safe enough for our dogs who like a run about under supervision. Fortunately the neighbours also had friendly dogs and didn't mind the odd 'visit'. The lodge itself was comfortable, with a small well-equipped kitched. We enjoyed doing a bit of cooking, so long as there was only one chef in the kitchen. The welcome pack was also very welcome! Overall, we had a great break and will definitely consider returning next year.

    Comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is in such a peaceful setting too, and the grounds are completely fenced in so it was great for our GSP Otis, he could wander round without us worrying. Steve and Tracy made us feel extremely welcome and we had many a long chat when they came by and Otis made great friends with Betty, their gorgeous Staffie! If anyone is looking to visit this part of Yorkshire then this property is where you need to stay, you won't find anything better for sure! Martin and Sharon Dobson with Otis
