  • "Fantastic property and stay!"

    The owner goes above and beyond the call of duty and is a pleasure to deal with. We were a group of 5 (mix of 70-80 years old and a couple of young uns in their 40s!) Beds were comfortable. Location is lovely. Short stroll to the beach (although it's extremely steep!), to part of the Cleveland Way and nearby pubs. Also a great "base" for jumping in the car and exploring further afield. Thoroughly recommend!

    Thanks so much Claire for your positive feedback..... We're so pleased you all enjoyed your week in Lobster Lodge! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely place to stay."

    Runswick Bay itself is very quiet but ideally located to explore North Yorkshire. We had a food shop delivered by both Tesco and Sainsburys (both fine). The owner does check in on your arrival to ensure that everything is ok and will recommend things that are of interest to you. The owner does also mow the lawns whilst you are there. The Runswick lodge area is very quiet. Not recommend for people that are looking for lively holiday.

    Thanks so much for leaving a review.... We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Lobster Lodge! Property Owner

  • "What a fabulous week."

    Louise couldn't have been more welcoming. The lodge is beautiful, well equipped, spotlessly clean and ideally situated. Needless to say there are great places to see & some lovely places to eat, our favourite being Ellerby Inn (only 1 mile away) and Runswick Bay is the most gorgeous un-spoiled little village, with a great pub/hotel (the Royal). Would not hesitate to recommend.

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review Anne. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Lobster Lodge. Hopefully me might see you again in the future! Property Owner

    Everything perfect. Booked the lodge again for June. The lodge is very very well equipped with lovely furniture. Couldn’t find a fault. The owners were so kind and Louise made a gorgeous sweet for us mid week. Good welcome pack too. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful lodge. Highly recommended. Fabulous walks nearby with or without a dog and lots of good pubs and places to visit not far away.

  • "The lodge was in the best position on the site, with all round sunshine and plenty of outdoor space."

    It was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The owners, who live locally, were friendly and helpful and provided special touches like a welcome pack and a surprise mid week treat! It is ideal for walkers as it is next to the Cleveland Way and with the beach, Whitby, Sandsend, Staithes and the moors nearby there is plenty to explore. The site is quiet, so a relaxing, time-out holiday is also possible.

    The lodge is stylish and very comfortable. Comfy beds and a powerful shower. The decking area is a real sun trap so we enjoyed coming back from a day out, sitting in the sun with a G&T and enjoying the view of the hills. The location is great too, very quiet but easy access to the beach and coastal path. 4 pubs/restaurants within walking distance as well. Would definitely recommend.
