  • "Great Lodge and brilliant location (we love Runswick Bay)."

    However the double bed was too small and the mattress was too soft and sank in the middle, the single beds were too small as well. Also the jacuzzi could’ve been a bigger model. But apart from that it was a great place for a get away. Really enjoyed it.

  • "We stayed in Lilac Lodge and it was a cosy little lodge."

    Ideal for couples and pet friendly. The Hot Tub ideal for 2. It had everything you need and the welcome pack was a nice touch. We enjoyed the biscuits and crisps. I would say the basic end of the lodges we've stayed at previously- a big caravan with better facilities. An ideal base for the surrounding area. Having the Hotel/ Bar within walking distance was great. The walk to the beach and back up the hill takes serious effort but worth it.

  • "We had a very comfortable stay at lilac lodge."

    I would say it is more suitable for 2 adults and 2 children rather than 4 adults, the twin room in very small. The lodge had everything we needed including washing up liquid, dish cloth,T towel and dish washer tablets, hair dryer, iron and board. Also a very well equipped kitchen. Bed and pillows comfortable. The welcome pack was appreciated. Loved the hot tub. Runswick Bay is a lovely place would love to return.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Lilac Lodge and we may return again in the future."

    The lodge was well equipped, very clean and in fact everything looked brand new. The hot tub was fabulous and quite private as they seem to have thought about the layout of all the lodges to provide as much privacy as possible. The site was lovely and quiet and we loved the location. We have never visited Runswick Bay before and we were blown away with how lovely it is, so much so that we spent a full day on the beach with our children. The lodge is 2 minutes up a very steep hill from Runswick bay which is very handy. Also very close to Staithes, Sansend and Whitby. If we do come again we would hope to stay longer as there are so many lovely places close by. My only negative is that it was quite expensive. We paid £600 for 2 nights last minute. We have stayed in lodges much bigger than this and also in a lovely location for much less money. We would however return if the prices were a little lower.

    Many thanks for your kind review. We understand your concern regarding pricing, sykes actually set all the pricing. We have week breaks for around £600. Keep an eye out for future dates. We hope to see you again sometime. Paddock lodges team Property Owner

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.
