    “We recently spent a weekend at The Lodge for a family celebration, and all had a great time.”


    The Lodge is suitable for a large group, with plenty of space over 3 floors. The kitchen is a fabulous feature, with a large central island for gathering round. 2 seperate sitting rooms both had comfy sofas, together with a TV in each. Large dining room allows all guests to gather and eat together, although it was disappointing to find that the Aga is a non working feature! The property is listed as 5* but I feel there are several factors which let it down, and do not feel it is worthy of those 5 stars. The dishwasher - this was damaged and has been 'repaired' using string! Unfortunately this repair does not work and meant a lot of washing up, which is not what we wanted to be doing while away. The external lighting was practically non- existent. The light near the hot tub is damaged and non operational, and the only light that came on, lit up after you had gone past the large step/trip hazard. The downstairs bedroom annex is in desperate need of updating. The toilet and shower room are awful and feels like you are in an old church hall! The loft rooms are also quite soul-less and need some TLC, something as simple as bleeding the radiators to heat the room would help!. There are numerous problems with curtain tracks in the property with hooks missing, curtains falling off, or not opening/closing. Despite there being lots of pans in the kitchen, there is a lack of serving bowls. A coffee machine would also be a great addition. Most self catering properties we have stayed in have a 'staples' cupboard where you can find salt, pepper, sugar, herbs etc. but there was absolutely nothing like this which meant a trip out for basics. Finally, you are asked to strip the beds and leave all bedding down in the dining room....I am sorry but that is not something I expect from 5* accomodation. This said, we had an enjoyable weekend and if a small amount of money was spent on finishing touches, we would recommend the property.

The property

This superb, Grade II listed detached stone property with an 8-person hot tub, lies in the small village of Snainton, between Scarborough and Pickering.

Full of warmth and character, The Lodge provides unique accommodation for family groups to enjoy time together in a wonderful part of the country.

From the moment you step inside this stunning property, you will be delighted with the luxuriously furnished, spacious rooms, which retain many original features of this beautiful building.

The large sociable kitchen has a quarry tiled floor, with bespoke units, an American-style fridge/freezer and a central island breakfast bar, enabling guests to sit and chat, whilst preparing tasty family meals using the gas range cooker and electric ovens.

Entertaining is no problem here, with a formal dining room that seats eighteen people and two bright and comfortable sitting rooms.

Toast your toes by the cosy woodburning stove in one room, or quietly relax with a book in the other; there is plenty of space to spread out here.

Set over three floors, there are eight bedrooms, with a mix of sumptuous super-king and twin beds, all with quality bedding and mattresses to ensure a good night's sleep.

On the top floor, the two bedrooms lead into each other and share a bathroom, making it an ideal private retreat for one family unit, whilst the ground floor super-king double has its own separate shower room.

To the rear of the property, is an enclosed lawned garden, perfect for a relaxing drink after a day spent exploring the area and a safe place for children to play and let off steam.

The bubbling hot tub, located in a sheltered sunny spot, is sure to be a big hit with everyone, where you can socialize and unwind after a busy day.

A five minute walk brings you to two local inns serving food, a traditional village store and a fish and chip shop.

There are many nearby walks, both along the Forge Valley and Dalby Forest, which has numerous cycling tracks for all abilities, whilst a few minutes’ drive brings you to the popular seaside resort of Scarborough, with its sandy beaches, painted beach huts and donkey rides.

Stroll along the promenade, enjoy the ornamental gardens, or dine in one of the many excellent restaurants.

The historic market towns of Pickering, Malton and Kirkbymoorside are all worth exploring, or you can take a trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway, which puffs its way from Pickering to Grosmont through the spectacular scenery of the heather clad moors.

With both countryside and coast to discover, your first visit to this exceptional property will not be your last!
