  • "The Lodge was clean and tidy including the hot tub, which is nice to see."

    The bedding and towels provided were fresh. We also got complimentary snacks and tea which is much appreciated. Overall the area is very quiet and gives you rest that areas with children can't. We were left to ourselves, which compared to some other properties is nice to experience and gives feeling that we are treated like adults. Owner of the property was open to communication and happy to accommodate and escalate anything we might require. Would definitely return in the future.

    Thankyou for your kind feed back I am pleased you enjoyed your stay in Butterfly Lodge Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay, peaceful setting and a lovely lodge."

    Great for the dog due to enclosed garden at front and back. Our dog can be a bit reactive to other dogs so this place was great as there was a quiet dog walking field close by. Temperature of the lodge was just right (another review had mentioned about being to cold, but we certainly didn't find that) lots of cooking utensils/crockery provided. Lovely welcome pack and also treats for the dog. Little things clearly thought of here, which came in handy, ie washing up liquid/hand wash/toilet roll/cloths etc provided. Would definetly stay again, thank you

    Thankyou for your lovely feedback and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and Thankyou for leaving the lodge lovely and clean I look forward to welcoming you back anytime Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet site and roomy property Let down by heating, turned cold through ..."

    Lovely quiet site and roomy property Let down by heating, turned cold through the evening and the owner controls when it is put on throughout the day, by the time radiators heated up to warm the lodge it was then switched off again, had to sit there wrapped in blankets and coats which spoilt the evenings

    Thankyou for the feedback The heating is set at 20c and is on a schedule it comes on and off at various times throughout the day and night I also monitor the temp of the lodge and if the temp drops to 18c I alter the schedule if guests require the heating schedule to be adjusted I do so as soon as I am contacted on the number provided to all guests The reason for the nest control is locked is because some guests in the past have set the heating to max and left it on 24hrs which is not acceptable I apologise if the heating schedule was not to your requirements as I said if you had contacted me on the number provided I would have adjusted it to suit Thankyou for your feed back Property Owner

  • "I want to be really fair in this review so I'll start by saying the lodge is really lovely and at first glance it seemed perfect."

    However we were first greeted by a very rude man from the site office, he told us off for missing the office even though we went straight back. He then followed us down to the lodge, watched my friend park and get out of the car then told her she had parked in the wrong place. She asked where it stated where to park and he said "you shouldn't be arguing with me"!!! Our first night we decided to stay in and cook, the cooker was very dirty and smelt unpleasant. There are only a few small saucepans so cooking was out of the question. The en suite shower was also very dirty. The long list of rules about the log burner were also sent to me in very long text messages. Perhaps the owner could put a little effort into the cooker and shower as he does the precious log burner. Unbelievably the owner controls the heating (I felt like I'd gone back 30 years!) It was so cold the first night that we had to go and buy more logs to keep warm. It is not acceptable for owners to decide when you can have the heating on. During the week the owner turned up to "check on the hot tub" why he couldn't have done that after we left I don't know. After he left a woman walked through the back gate asking where he was - no idea who she was! 5 minutes later a different woman appeared peering through the gate, she ducked down when she saw me. It all felt very intrusive and made us feel uncomfortable. For anyone going in the winter months I would recommend taking some kind of heater to save spending money on logs, also take some larger saucepans if you want to cook! I'm sorry this is not a great review, I hope the owner takes note of the comments about the cooker and shower and most importantly that he allows people to decide when they need the heating on!!

    Thankyou for your feedback I do not agree with the comments you have left also the booking was for 2 people it has come to light that there was more than 2 people at the lodge this is why I have rules regarding the lodge because people abuse the lodge when staying there As for the hot tub it is inspected randomly this is for health and safety purposes and to check on the water quality and chemicals because once again people abuse the lodge and hot tub As for the lodge being untidy or unclean my house keepers take great pride in making sure it is spotless and clean Regarding the heating I control the heating because guests have abused it and had the heating on constantly it is set on a schedule and the temp is 20c I also monitor it and if it needs adjusting I do so When I personally checked the hot tub I asked if everything was ok and was told by you both that yes everything was lovely at no point did you report anything you were unhappy about But Thankyou for your review although I do not agree with any of it at all Property Owner

    Advertised as having a log burner but only when we got there we was told that the policy had changed and we were told not to use it. Despite this we would come again

The property

Butterfly Lodge is a charming, detached lodge located in a peaceful holiday park close to the parish village of Catterick near Tunstall, North Yorkshire.

Butterfly Lodge, nestled inside the Swaledale valley and offering easy access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is a delightful setting for your next Yorkshire Dales break, finished to a high quality and ideal for a small family or group of four.

On arrival, two in-demand off-road parking places await you; after parking, make your walk up to the sunny front deck and relax on the seats while taking in your peaceful surroundings.

Inside the lodge, you'll find an attractive sitting room with neutral tones and plenty of plush seating to make you feel at home; why not turn on the TV for a family movie night while the woodburning stove flickers?

Travel to the back of the lodge to find a fantastic kitchen with an abundance of amenities, including a large fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

After the group's appointed chef has prepared a scrumptious meal, enjoy your feast in the dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with natural light and make it a pleasant place to dine.

When the sun goes down, proceed to the master bedroom, which has a double bed, a fantastic walk-in closet, and a convenient en-suite shower room.

Another well-presented double room nearby has easy access to a family bathroom; the bathroom is home to a bath and a shower over, giving you the option of a quick freshen up or a longer soak in.

The neighbouring village of Tunstall is home to the Bay Horse Inn, a great destination for a pint and lunch, while the larger village of Hipswell is only three miles away and has all your necessities in one location.

After you've picked up your necessities at the village superstore, why not enjoy a round of golf at the Catterick Golf Club?

Continue north to the county town of Richmond, which has a number of attractions inside its charming architecture, including the informative Richmondshire Museum, the breathtaking Richmond Castle, and the lovely River Swale Waterfalls.

Travel south to Leyburn, where you can have a stroll or cycle through Leyburn Shawl, see the nearby Harmby Waterfall, or spend the day at the famed Wensleydale Agricultural Show if you come at the proper time of year.

Make the most of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is home to a wealth of excursions and attractions, including The Forbidden Corner.

You can also enjoy adventures in the lively towns of Middlesbrough and Harrogate, which have many activities for the entire family.
