  • "Lovely lodge, clean, well maintained, in a peaceful area."

    Close to pretty Runswick bay , no fee parking unfortunately ! Not far to drive to Whitby . The only problem we didn't expect was the en suite walk in shower wasn't working , and with mobility issues climbing into a bath for a shower was not easy for us both . Also the free view tv is non existent, fortunately we had our tablet to watch TV. This maybe a problem for some people . We loved the break and would be happy to return if the shower is fixed .

  • "We found the front of one of the freezer drawers broken and the pieces just left there, and there was food and ice still in from the last people."

    We called guest relations to get someone out to remove and clean it and to adjust the heating. It was set to come on at 7am but we get up early so we were cold, and we were cold through the night. We found tissues, underwear, and a book in one of the bedroom drawers, hairs in the bath and struggled to watch anything on the TV due to no signal. A beautiful lodge but some aspects were very disappointing.

    Thank you for your feedback, your comments have been noted. The heating was adjusted, and the freezer mended and cleaned, immediately you reported them. We addressed all problems reported at the time of your stay. We are sorry about the cleaning issues, had we known about them we would have recalled the housekeeper to address those immediately too.

  • "The lodge was very spacious and comfortable,only a couple of little things that could be better,one being more mugs,plates etc are needed,there is a large dishwasher but you cannot let the pots mount up because there are not enough, and it’s not efficient to put the dishwasher on with little in it."

    The tv signal is very poor, the ITV channel was non existent while we where there,but hopefully we plan to return next year as we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "The lodge could be nice but lack of care, maintenance and cleaniness let it down."

    Also poor quality fixtures eg shower very low pressure and bed really uncomfortable. We have stayed at another lodge on the site previously which was much higher standard but wasn't available this time unfortunately. Many issues already reported on website reviews and in the guest book haven't been addressed, basic TV channels unavailable, cleanliness (we also found someone else's pants in bedroom drawer, hair and dirt in drawers, toothpaste splattered in bathroom and red mould in bathroom), broken lamp etc. We phoned Sykes to discuss issues and they said that someone would come to fix TV issues but no one ever came. We gave feedback by email to Sykes two weeks ago at end of our holiday about issues and included photos, they said this would be passed to their quality team and the lodge owner but we never got any further response to our feedback. Disappointing, shame as lovely site and excellent location and if they addressed the issues raised by people the lodge could be lovely.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry you found your stay disappointing, we have taken your feedback on board and we will do our upmost to rectified these issue Property Owner

  • "This lodge is truly beautiful and equipped with everything you could need, everything is of high quality inside and where it is situated within the resort is very peaceful and quiet."

    It was very clean throughout, the beds were comfy and it was a nice temperature throughout which has been pre set for you, I stayed in June but the weather was the usual for our country, unpredictable! The overall location is great as a base, it’s a nice short walk down to runswick bay but beware it is a very very steep slope down to the bay, you can drive but you’d miss the spectacular views! I walked down in a Monday morning and sadly the beach cafe was closed but the nearby royal hotel wasn’t so I was able to have a coffee there with lovey views to look out over. I have no complaints at all about this lodge, I went alone but it would more than comfortably sleep and accommodate 4, the decking is lovely and the furniture out there is very luxurious, more so than the other lodges I could see, overall I would highly highly recommend it!!

  • "The initial impression of the park and this lodge is deceptive."

    The park is very swish and the outside of the lodge likewise. We received a small welcome hamper which was nice. The lodge was nicely decorated and comfy, but was missing the 4 star touches the park and listing suggested it had. The vents blow constant cold air and make It uncomfortable. The previous reviews stated this as well. The kitchen was poorly equipped, rusty sieve for example and very few pieces of decent equipment, very limited selection of utensils, but bizarrely and onion bag! Bedroom blinds don’t cover the entire window leaving light streaming in from next door lodge outdoor light. Small curtains in main lodge hardly meet and are hard to draw leaving you open to the neighbours. Biggest issue was the TV. There were NO channels due to the signal, it stated no aerial. There was only on demand TV. Staying over winter, in England and with dark early nights, I’m afraid this is a must and you cannot call something luxury if you don’t provide the basics. We stayed new year and couldn’t even watch the countdown. Had to squint on a phone. DVD player provided with selection of very dated DVD’s but if the tv issue was sorted, it wouldn’t be needed. It’s a shame that a stay of nearly £1000 was down priced by these issues, a lot of which have been mentioned before in the book but haven’t been addressed. The listing needs revising to make it reflect a more true picture.

    Thank you for your feedback. The Pines Lodge park is a new development with very popular high standard lodges. We are disappointed that you are not entirely happy with your stay. The kitchen and equipment are all new, if there was anything that you felt was missing or not up scratch, we could have easily rectified this had you got in touch with us during your stay. The bedroom blinds and the curtains do cover the entire windows so should block the light out when needed, but we will look to make sure they aren’t broken or caught which could stop them drawing fully. The main bedroom air vent has an adjustable cover to keep cold air out and the bathroom vents allow air circulation for health and safety. Unfortunately, the TV issue is caused by a fire at the local transmitter. It is something that we are aware of but it is out of our control, many local areas have been affected. We have ensured that you are still able to access the smart TV channels and streaming. The NYE countdown was available to watch live on the BBC iplayer on the main living room TV. Property Owner

    Whilst the booking experience with Sykes was great, I have been considering whether I would use this company again in preference to other holiday companies as in the last 24 hours prior to departure I received e-mail, (multiple) telephone, and voicemail messages all reminding me about how to leave the property and stating I had taken keys with me in error when in fact Sykes has got the wrong departure date for our party. I did feel hassled by the experience which is not what you want on the last day of the holiday, and the reminders were a little condescending. One set of instructions is perfectly satisfactory.

The property

Staithes 2.4 miles.

Situated on the wonderful grounds of The Pines at Runswick Bay on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, is the attractive ground-floor lodge of Huckleberry.

Boasting stylish and contemporary interiors throughout, this gorgeous self-catering cottage provides a fabulous setting for small family getaway to the awe-inspiring coast of North Yorkshire.

Be welcomed into a restful open-plan living space, perfect for socialising with your nearest and dearest as you enjoy a quiet evening indoors.

Take to the pretty sage green kitchen and discover a sea of appliances and utensils, as you take to the handy gas stove to prepare a hearty home-cooked dinner.

Chat with friends at the breakfast bar as you pour a tasty glass of wine, before taking a seat at the dining table and devouring a tasty family feast.

Retire to the plush grey sofa or curl up in the inviting armchair, flicking on the impressive TV and watching as flames flicker within the woodburning-effect stove.

On warmer nights be sure to indulge in dinner alfresco out on the patio, cracking open a perfectly chilled bottle of bubbly and toasting to the good times that lie ahead.

Wander back inside to the warm embrace of one of the two beautifully decorated bedrooms including a double that benefits from a well-designed en-suite, and a twin.

The lodge also boasts an airy bathroom featuring both a bath and a shower over, so guests can choose how to get ready for the day that lies ahead.

When you can just about manage to tear yourself away from this homely dwelling, embark on a relaxing stroll down to the soft white sands of Runswick Bay Beach, stopping off at the local café for a spot of breakfast along the way.

Continue along the coast to Saltburn-by-the-Sea for a awe-inspiring journey on the Saltburn Cliff Tramway.

Take a wander along the pier watching as boats bob in the waters, and explore the wonderful Saltburn Gill Nature Reserve.

Travel to Whitby and be blown away by the Gothic remains of Whitby Abbey and the 12th century architecture of St Mary's Church.

Head back down the steep 199 Steps to Whitby Beach, spotting the great Whalebone Arch as you go.

Take a tour of the seas with the Whitby Whale Watching Trip, or head inland to the North York Moors National Park for a thrilling hike through Bridestones, Crosscliff & Blakey Topping.

For the ultimate escape to the coast, be sure to book Huckleberry.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
