  • “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.

    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.

Open up the large French doors and delight in drinks out on the veranda, taking a seat at the pretty table and admiring views of the stars.

Return to the warmth of the lodge, snuggling up on the chic cream sofas as you keep nice and toasty from the heat of the electric fire and watch a movie on the Smart TV.

Off the sitting area there is a small yet handy utility room with a washer/dryer, so that you can keep on top of the laundry throughout your stay.

Relatively un-commercialised and with vehicular traffic restricted, the village provides the perfect setting in which to relax and unwind.

There is much to do in the local area, whether it's visiting Whitby with its famous Abbey, Staithes with its pretty shops, cafes and superb art gallery, or touring the dramatic North York Moors. The lower village houses a local inn serving food along with a spectacularly situated cafe, whilst nearby Hinderwell provides 2 inns, a fish and chip shop, a local butchers and a garage/petrol station. A Co-op is situated at Staithes 2 miles away.
