  • "Would not book again with Sykes after property left uncleaned"

    The cleaning company somehow missed the lodge on their list of cottages to clean. I called them as soon as I was informed upon your arrival and they came immediately to clean the cottage for you. I can only apologise for this inconvenience. Hopefully its the first and last time this happens Property Owner

    Thought of everything. Nobody should find fault with this property, if they do, there is something wrong with them. Location, comfort, cleanliness, FABULOUS, and the neighbours are nice too.

    thanks for the great review it's much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "This was our second time staying at the lodge."

    It’s a lovely cosy cottage in a perfect location close to the cinder track. On our arrival the cottage was icy cold and the heating wasn’t working! there is a lovely log stove in the cottage however on this visit there wasn’t any fuel to light it, the first time we stayed there was enough coal and logs left as a starter for your first night. So we had to go out and find a place that sold coal, this and the heating not working wasn’t a great start to a holiday in December. After calling Sykes who were very kind and helpful I later got a call from the lovely owner who talked me through how to top up the water to get the boiler working. Once we’d done this it was a much nicer evening for us. We felt that the lodge had been stood empty as it was so very cold and putting the heat on caused a lot of condensation. It was running down the walls, windows and even the kitchen floor was wet when the heating is on or you used the oven. There was a smell of damp the whole time we were there and some of the internal walls are crumbling due to this problem. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed our holiday and would stay again but only in the warmer months.

    Sorry you had a problem with the heating on your arrival. I had put the heating on remotely the day before your arrival. Unbeknown to me the pressure had dropped on the bolier. I'm glad we managed to sort out the problem shortly after your arrival. Property Owner

  • "I felt the cottage was not dog friendly because the neighbours started complaining within an hour of us being there because the dogs where playing after a long 5hr car journey with breaks."

    I feel that they would have been the same if I had small children with me. I then felt on egg shells the whole time and wouldn't use the garden, was worried the while time that my autistic child would have a meltdown and wanted to keep the dogs separated in case they wanted to play. He continued to complain the whole time. I also wanted to wash the towels and the washing machine was so dirty that I had to clean it 1st but even after that the towels smelled so bad that they couldn't be used again. On the night we arrived we put the kitchen tap on and the pressure forced the tap off and we had to quickly turn off the water and we repaired this ourself, luckily that was just an easy repair of screwing it back on. The one plus was the beds, they were so comfortable and the best that I have ever had in holiday accommodation before.

    The majority of our bookings are from people with dogs.Not once in all the time we've had the cottage have we ever had a complaint from the neighbours about a guest. They are lovely people who wouldn't have complained without good cause. We were informed your dogs were constantly barking 24 hours a day the whole time you were there. I'm sure this would have driven a Saint mad! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at the lodge."

    Its a great location from whitby and surrounding areas. We walked the cinder track or drove about easily. There is also a bus not too far from the house travelling from Middlesbrough to Scarborough. We ate at the windmill one night and would definitely recommend. We wish we'd gone sooner. The house is great, set back from the road. I've never seen our anxious dog so relaxed. The house was well equipped, we used the washing machine and had a maiden to dry clothes. I would say the kitchen wasn't as clean as expected. Notes say to empty cupboards and it looks like this was trusted to be done however still old food items and stains in cupboard. We rewashed the cutlery as had food stains (possibly from the dishwasher, we dont have one at home so just used the sink) and the cooker and microwave had dried food stuck to them. As a dog friendly property i appreciate it may be harder to keep on top of the hairs etc. Our dog doesn't malt and the rug in the living room had alot of dog hair left behind. We were out throughout the day staying busy and everybody's standard of cleanliness is different. I would still recommend the lodge to stay due to the great location.

No problem parking in the village unlike some of the cottages we considered in Whitby!

    Location is ideal as we do alot of walking. Beds were comfy . My husband bearing in mind is 58 loved looking for the mice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay . Only thing was a slug trail on the rug in the living room but we didn't mind that you are in the countryside. Would highly recommend

    Thankyou for your kind review. We're pleased to see that your husband enjoyed hunting for the little wooden mice, we did originally add them for the children to find but it seems to be that the adults enjoy it just as much.

    Had most of the things you would need for a week away with small children. Only negatives for us personally were the mattresses being super firm and when we arrived it hadn't been cleaned properly with clumps of white dog hair in the living room all over the rug and floor. Not ideal when you have young children picking it up. Other than that it ticked the boxes for everything you would need.

    However the central heating would not work and no wood provided for the log burner. Fortunately we were able to buy some wood . The oven grill had not been cleaned after it’s last use. The towels particularly for one of us were inadequate. No bath towel. I am sure these things can be addressed but I felt they needed mentioning. Re the central heating there were no instructions which would have been helpful.

    So sorry to read you had a few problems with your stay. Sykes customer services would have been glad to help with the heating problem it's a shame you didn't call them. We hope If you return you'll find everything to your satisfaction. Property Owner

The property

Positioned in the charming village of Stainsacre within the North York Moors National Park, The Lodge is a delightful end-terrace cottage offering four guests a base for outdoor adventures.

With an enclosed garden, traditional features including exposed stone walls and beams, and close proximity to Whitby, the coast and The Cinder Track, The Lodge is an excellent choice for your next break to North Yorkshire.

Enter in via the front enclosed garden, a neat space with a lawned area, patio and picnic bench for alfresco dining.

Discover a homely living and dining room to relax in, complete with leather sofas, a woodburning stove and a TV, amidst the exposed timber beams and rustic stonework, with a dining table to the rear.

Head into the kitchen to find ample appliances to assist you on your self-catered stay, including an electric oven with gas hob, a washing machine and a dishwasher.

Take the stairs to the first floor and come upon the stylish bathroom, boasting a claw-foot bath with a hand held shower, overhead shower and subway tiling.

Lay your head down in one of the two delightful bedrooms, including a master double bedroom which benefits from a dressing room, and a twin room.

The village of Stainsacre is home to a lovely pub, Windmill Inn, lying just a short stroll away, perfect for evening meals and drinks, while the nearest supermarkets are around half a mile from the cottage on the outskirts of Whitby.

Close to the cottage is The Cinder Track, a disused railway line turned into a 22-mile walking and cycling route running just inland from the coast from Whitby to Scarborough, offering the perfect way to explore the national park with your family.

Just two miles away is the coast where you can embark on further walks, this time with sea views, along the Cleveland Way, coming to the likes of Robin Hood's Bay, a delightful village to stop at for refreshments in one of the pubs or cafés.

Enjoy days within the town of Whitby, choosing from an array of attractions with firm favourites being the dramatic Whitby Abbey which sits over the town, reached via the 199 Steps, with the Whalebone Arch and Whitby Lighthouse providing perfect photo ops, and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum shedding light on the history of the town and its famous explorer.

Venture further into the North York Moors National Park for walks along the Esk Valley, searching for waterfalls, and hiking the various hills and peaks found here.

Enjoy a fun family break or a walking adventure to the North York Moors and coast at The Lodge.
