"Thank you for such a lovely, warm and welcoming stay, the lodge is delightful with everything we needed and more!"
The hamper and the flan were a fabulous surprise and enjoyed by all.
"A lovely easy week and a very handy location to be able to reach many places."
A very comfortable lodge and very homely, and if you made the tart Louise, you should be on Bake Off!! Thank you.
"A wonderful well equipped and comfortable lodge, had everything we needed."
A lovely quiet spot and beautiful views over the hills. Well placed for walks to Staithes and Sandsend, returning via excellent bus service ( which also took us to Whitby and Saltburn) Would recommend Whitby Museum, something for everyone; St Mary's Church; also fish and chips near Saltburn Pier. Not forgetting Fortune's kippers. Thank you Terry and Louise for being such great hosts.
"A great almost halfway house for both our families to meet."
The cottage was great base for exploring - North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Saltburn, Whitby, Scarborough, Hole of Horcum... The Ellerby Inn was brilliant, definitely worth a trip out. Lobster Lodge was brilliant for all of our family and because the weather was kind, we managed to use the decking for meals especially as it had sunshine all day long!!! A fantastic stay, thank you we loved it.
"Lobster Lodge is truly lovely."
It is well equipped, good quality furnishings, has more than enough storage and most importantly, comfy beds! The welcome basket, including treats for our dog, was a lovely touch and the mid-week fruit tart was delicious! This was our first visit to Runswick Bay and hopefully it won't be our last. Lobster Lodge at The Pines (which is an extremely quiet site) is the perfect base for exploring the East Coast between Saltburn and Robin Hoods Bay, each only being a short drive away. When we return, I would happily rebook to stay at Lobster Lodge; if I was to list any negatives, I would really be nit-picking! Thanks for providing such lovely accommodation.
Thank you so much for such a positive review. We're really pleased you enjoyed your holiday & stay in Lobster Lodge. Property Owner
We have made amazing memories. Lovely welcome hamper and a surprise flan midweek. Such thoughtful hosts. Thank you we will definitely be back soon.
"Beautiful lodge in a very lovely part of the world."
The lodge was incredibly well equipped, and maintained to a very high standard. The wrap around decking is fabulous, and on a sunny day there is ample space to relax with the family. The kitchen is well resourced, with plenty of good quality pots, pans and utensils. Lots of love for the fantastic American style fridge-freezer, and super fast toaster! :) Special mention has to go to the bunk bedroom - a massive hit with our 10 year old. Such a wonderful space :) The water pressure is superb so the showers are hot and powerful. Plenty of parking, with enough space to house two cars comfortably. The lodge is dog friendly, and our black lab loved it. And, unlike alot of dog friendly places, the standard of cleanliness and quality of the furnishings has not been compromised; it's very clean, and well maintained. Terry and Louise clearly look after their property and are close by if you need anything, including the delivery of a very delicious mid week treat! :) We had a lovely week at Lobster Lodge, even though it rained. Alot. We'll definately be back soon :)
Thank you so much Samantha for such a positive review ....we really appreciate it and we're pleased you all enjoyed your holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner
"Very comfortable accommodation."
Quiet spot. Brunswick Bay was beautiful. A relaxing holiday. The roll too bath was great for a soak at the end of a busy day!

"Very comfortable accommodation, thank you Terry and Louise."
The fruity tart was yummy! Lovely to re-visit this beautiful area of Yorkshire. The girls loved the beach at Runswick Bay. Best fish and chips from Fish Cottage at Sandsend. We enjoyed the welcome pack - especially the wine!

Welcome pack and midweek treat much appreciated. Grandsons demanded bucket and spades on the beach every day (whatever the weather!) See you next year!

"We've had the perfect week."
The sun has shone all week and Lobster Lodge is beautiful. Absolutely everything we could need or want in the lodge and in such a pretty part of the country. Thank you Terry and Louise for being so welcoming. Would definitely return and recommend. Thanks again.
"We had a fantastic week at Lobster Lodge over Easter."
We have stayed at The Pines before in a different lodge so we knew what to expect and Lobster Lodge was perfect for our needs. The children loved the bunk bedroom and I found the beds really comfy and the lodge was always lovely and warm despite the cold and rain outside! Huge sofa in the lounge so plenty of space and the kids loved the games and jigsaws that were in the lodge. It would have been nice to have things like tea, coffee, sugar, cling film and tin foil provided. We did get a lovely hamper when we arrived but this would have been a useful touch. The hoover in the property didn't work which isn't ideal when we had a dog with us and we also found a false nail in the bathroom and some dried contact lenses on the floor in the bedroom so I would have liked to run the hoover round myself! There were tupperware lids but no boxes which would have been useful for when we took a picnic out with us but again we made do. The kitchen units were a bit clunky to open but we got the hang of it. The door tread in the bathroom was loose and the shelf in the childrens room wasn't secure and fell off whilst we were there! Overall just a few minor touches which could easily be fixed and wouldn't put us off a return visit. We would love to come back to the lodge again!
Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you had a lovely stay and Easter family break. Thank you for bringing the above points to our attention. As you know this is self catering accommodation, we did provide an Easter themed Hamper and we also have a coffee machine and coffee pods left for you. We will look into getting some more Tupperware’s for the lodge. The hoover was working however it just needed charging, but we apologise if the cleaner missed something. We have now fixed the shelf and door tread- thank you for bringing this to our attention- If you had contacted YCC during your stay they would have arranged for these to have been sorted at the time. Thank you for your feedback, we have taken it all on board and we hope to welcome you again soon. Property Owner
"A wonderful stay at Lobster Lodge."
Shame about the weather but managed a few nice days of sunshine. Wonderful hosts and very helpful. Runswick is beautiful as always. Thank you.
"A fantastic week at Lobster Lodge."
Was so comfortable and met our needs with a lovely hamper left by Terry and Louise. Visited lots of places and enjoyed them all. Beaches are lovely and Ruby enjoyed all the walks to the beach. Had a fantastic meal at the Badger - Sunday lunch - worth the trip. Thank you again Terry and Loyuise.
"Had a wonderful week in the beautiful Lobster Lodge."
Thank you Louise and Terry for the welcome hamper and mid week treat, we really appreciated them! Runswick Bay is absolutely beautiful and our dog Skip loved his evening runs on the beach. Had some amazing meals at the Ellerby Inn. Would highly recommend! Thank you.
"Wonderful Lodge, comfy, warm, quiet, could live here!"
Whitby is lovely as is Runswick Beach. Thank you for all the extra touches and the welcome hamper and the midweek fruit tarts! Very delicious! Sad to leave but feel very rested and hope to return. Thank you.
"Great week in this lovely, well equipped lodge."
Located within easy walking distance to beach, pubs and coastal path. Also ideal for exploring the wonderful Yorkshire coastline and quaint seaside villages. Lovely welcome pack on arrival and a tasty mid-week treat of fruit pie from Louise. Thanks.
Hi Neil ....thank you for your positive feedback & we're delighted you enjoyed your stay in Lobster Lodge! Property Owner
"We had a lovely week at Lobster Lodge with the family."
The Lodge is very comfortable and clean. The owners are lovely and provided a lovely welcome pack and a delicious tart mid week. The lobsters were delicious which they cooked and dressed for us. I highly recommend this Lodge for everything including it's location. Thank you Terry and Louise. Sue and family
Thank you Sue for such a positive review and we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Lobster Lodge! Property Owner
"Thank you for a wonderful stay at Lobster lodge."
We all had a fab time, and particularly enjoyed the fresh lobster and delicious fruit tart! Carolyn and Family
Thank you for such positive feedback Carolyn and we're so pleased you all enjoyed your stay in Lobster Lodge! Property Owner
"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
"This is the 2nd year we have stayed in one of the lodges, Seagull first and now Lobster."
The owners could not do enough for you. Wonderful midweek break. Thank you to the owner for the Lobster!
"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
"Absolute fabulous holiday."
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.
Hi Julie... Thank you for such positive feedback. We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay in Lobster Lodge and look forward to seeing you again! Property Owner
"Wonderfully appointed accommodation and everything worked!"
Found some good pubs: Breack House and Little Angel in Whitby the 3 in Staithes. Great Lobster , Captain Cook and Royal George, and the best of all the Stiddy in Lythe. We were lucky with the weather; made good use of the patio. Thanks Terry and Louise for your hospitality

Then you have Robins Hoods Bay and Whitby etc the other side. Beautiful down to Rundswick Bay. The dogs loved it as much as we did too.

The lodge itself was spotless had a lovely welcome basket which made us feel quite at home. All the equipment that we needed. We will definitely book again Thanks for a lovely holiday
"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 so comfortable and ideally placed to explore the local area."
The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and made us feel very welcome. The owners, Terry and Louise, were very helpful with any problems we had during the week. We'll definitely return.
"We had a lovely week at Lobster Lodge."
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.
"Our stay at lobster lodge was perfect for a family of 4 with 2 very young children and a dog."
It was really clean, had everything we needed and is perfectly positioned close to the beach, cliffs and pubs of Runswick. It felt like a very luxurious cabin, with a generous welcome basket full of treats. Booked to stay again next year! Thanks, Lizzie

Very very clean. A credit to the cleaners and owner.
