Thank you so much for such a lovely review Philip..we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay & look forward to welcoming you back to our lodge in the future. Property Owner Reviewed by Philip5.0★Aug 2023 "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seagull Lodge." It is one of a dozen or so lodges in a quiet, secure and nicely landscaped section of the park. The lodge itself is modern, spacious and very well equipped. We slept really well, the beds are very comfortable and there are TV's in both bedrooms. The owners are on hand should you need anything; we received a welcome call from Louise and found a basket of treats and milk in the fridge. Terry popped by during the week and we were left a lovely fruit tart - delicious, thank you! A couple of very minor points; we like to recycle but there does not seem to be the facility on the park, only general waste. Some hooks in the bathrooms would be useful and a couple more baking trays and oven glove for the kitchen. Overall we had a fantastic stay and would definitely return! Many thanks for such a positive review and bringing to our attention the need for hooks in the bathroom & a new oven glove ...obviously the one that was in there has disappeared? Hopefully we'll see you again in the future. Property Owner Reviewed by Paul4.1★Aug 2023 "Lovely lodge and very comfortable, very well cared for Only small point we ..."

Property Owner Reviewed by Dawn5.0★Aug 2022 "We had a fantastic holiday staying at Seagull Lodge." It is superbly located to either stay put and enjoy Runswick bay or explore the surrounding area. We had a great meal at the Runswick Bay hotel, the beach is lovely, great for relaxing and also good for fossil hunting which we got a bit addicted to. In our week we visited Robins Hood bay, Whitby, Scarborough, Saltburn (fantastic beach and places to eat, if you like your steak then the Tomahawk steakhouse is excellent) and did a day at Flamingo land which isn't too far away. The Lodge itself was spotless, spacious for the 4 of us and very well appointed. We weren't left wanting for anything. Host Louise is on the ball! She immediately gave us a call as soon as we arrived to make sure everything was ok and she was just a call or WhatsApp message away if we needed anything, that makes a huge difference. She also offered fresh dressed lobster (at cost price) which we opted for and were absolutely delicious, and we were treated to a fresh fruit tart midweek, a lovely touch and also delicious. It was a real drag packing up to come home. We will definitely be looking to return here in the future. Thank you.

Thanks Judith for such a lovely review..... We're looking forward to seeing you again in the near future! Property Owner Reviewed by Judith5.0★May 2022 "Excellent in every way." Tastefully appointed, extremely well maintained and very comfortable - especially the bed! It is difficult to think of anything which could be added to the equipment or fittings which might improve the experience, although I did find the shower control in the en suite rather too stiff for my arthritic wrist. However, this is not really an issue as there is always the bathroom, and anywayTerry is aware of it. The welcome pack was easily the most generous we have had anywhere and the entries in the visitors' book all commented on the superb midweek fruit tart - quite right, too! Terry was there when we arrived, Louise came later to welcome us and to see how we had settled and altogether they could scarcely have been more hospitable or helpful through the week. Totally recommended! What a lovely review Brian.... Thank you so much. We're so pleased you had a good week in Seagull Lodge....

A very comfortable home from home. The drying cupboard as you come into the lodge is great when you have wet and muddy clothes/shoes! The Pines is a very quiet and exclusive site. Cooking xmas lunch in a cooker that isn't yours was fun to say the least! The Runswick Bay Hotel in the village, The Badger Hounds in Hinderwell and the Cod & Lobster in Staithes are all well worth the visit - all food was out of this world! Great walks to the beach and on the Cleveland Way for the dog. Visited Whitby and Sandsend - lovely. If I could just make a couple of friendly suggestions: Need hooks on the back of the main bedroom en-suite door for towels. The quilt on the kingsize bed was too small for the quilt cover. Lamp in the twin bedroom didn't work, but found another lamp in the wardrobe to swap it for. One of the lamps in the main bedroom was loose near the shade. Couple of bulbs in the spot lights in the living room/kitchen didn't work. We loved it so much, that we have booked for xmas 2022! Can't wait.
