  • "The property was the size we required accomodating 8 adults and 5 children with everything we needed for this amount of people there are some tweaks which would make this even better but these are general wear and tear maintenance."

    Downtairs bedroom and toilet the shower needs the hose replaced and sealing around shower looked at. Seal around shower in other ground floor bathroom. Main cooker in kitchen the right hand oven seal needs replaced and screws replaced on rail on the front of the Aga. A general observation is that the main accomodation on first floor only has one toilet and when 3 families using this another toilet would make this just right for them.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It's always really useful to get feedback which enables us to make continuous improvements to our properties. I delighted to hear that the size of the accommodation was ideal for you all and I hope you managed to see some Scarborough sunshine whilst you were here! The gardens are just coming into colour this time of year it is is so lovely to be able to enjoy them. Kindest Regards Julie Property Owner

  • "Nice big property."

    Ideal for a large family gathering. Could seat everyone in dining room . However, there were two lounges to accommodate our full party. Hot tub wax great. Property needs a bit of TLC but comfortable enough. Overall would recommend.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review after your resent stay at The Lodge. All reviews help future guests when planning and booking their own family getaway. As you say there are 2 lounges to accommodate our guests which works great if the adults want to chat in one and the kids are playing in another and our photo's do clearly show 2 so I'm sorry if this was not what you were expecting but all in all it sounds like you had a lovely time.

  • "This is a great property for a family stay."

    Lots of living space and a huge outdoor area including hot tub (we weren’t able to make the most of the garden as we stayed in December but it would be beautiful in summer). Plenty of parking, we had 7 cars. Nearby to a lovely pub where we had a carvery (Coachmann Inn) and a few drinks (The Peacock). The only slight feedback was on the main floor there is only one bathroom for 5 bedrooms which did get a bit hectic in the mornings. Other than that it was a fantastic stay and we would definitely stay again

    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. The Lodge is a beautiful house and we have many guests returning time and time again. The gardens really are spectacular and of course the hot tub is always popular! I'm sorry to hear that mornings were a little hectic but there are the 2 additional bathrooms downstairs, however I do appreciate your comment. We'd love to welcome you back and thanks again for the lovely review. Best Wishes Julie Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely time!"

    Bedrooms all a great size and cosy. Plenty of space for all our party of 8. Would feel a bit of a squeeze if we’d filled the bedrooms. Especially as neither living space could fit you all in at once. The high street is a busy road car wise and therefore the noise if heard in some bedrooms and one of the lounges. One of the en-suites is in a connected outbuilding and this needs some up keep including resolving the mould issue. The washing machine and dryer are in an out building which is extremely damp and mouldy and the walls are crumbling, not the greatest space to be washing clothes. The plates in the kitchen need reviewing as more than half have chips in which isn’t good for hygiene. Was really snowy and icy during our stay and no grit left for the drive which was a shame as we struggled to find any in the shops. I’d also say I don’t believe the drive would fit 5 cars on. We had 4 comfortably Having paid quite a lot to stay here was disappointing to arrive to no welcome basket or even milk, tea, coffee and biscuits.

    Easy to find, enough parking, ideally situated for a couple of friendly pubs - one of which had excellent food. The garden is spacious with a private hot tub. The log burning fire was great for a cosy night in. The house was very clean and comfy with plenty of pots and utensils. The house was lovely and warm despite storm Babet! The only thing that may have improved the coziness was a few throws / snuggly blankets. The showers and bath were enjoyed by all. Plenty of space and a big enough table to house some family games and meals! Would thoroughly recommend. Communication prior to arrival was welcoming and regular. Informative manual detailing all possible questions was also provided. Thank you and will look forward to coming again xx

    Thanks you so much for leaving an outstanding 100/100 review. It sounds like you all have had a wonderful time. Thankfully storm Babet didn't last too long and you were able to enjoy the gardens and the ever so popular hot tub! The Lodge is the perfect place for multi generational family get-togethers with enough space for everyone. The location of The Lodge is ideal whether it's a short drive into Scarborough to visit our beautiful beaches or a trip to Dalby forest, home to over 8,500 acres of breath-taking views, endless walking, running and cycle trails. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kindest Regards Julie Property Owner

  • "Lovely setting & character, and the garden was enormous, lovely for the dog but it was a bit disappointing that we couldn’t let him run free as it wasn’t fully enclosed, and could have been without much expense."

    Hot tub was excellent. Good kitchen equipment with plenty of crockery, cutlery & cooking utensils, and useful washroom with washer & dryer. More seating needed in the kitchen, around the island, and the existing stools are a bit wobbly. Beds very comfortable, and good bath & shower rooms upstairs & down. One problem we discovered is that the toilet near the downstairs bedroom seems to have a slight leak near the base. This toilet & shower room could do with an upgrade to make them more user friendly. They are very cold. All in all we had a very good holiday, thank you.

    Thanks you so much for leaving us a review. It's incredibly important not only so future guests can read about your experience but also so we can continue to improve our guests experience. The downstairs toilet and shower room can get cold due to the size and age of the house, but thankfully the rest of the house is more than adequately heated so I hope it didn't cause too much of a problem. We pride ourselves in making tour stay feel 'home from home' so I'm pleased that you found it well equipped. The hot tub is always a big hit! I'm thrilled that you had a very good holiday.

  • "We had a really good weekend and the property offered us exactly what we needed."

    The kitchen facilities were exceptionally good and the downstairs bathroom/ toilet was clean and modern. However there were a couple of issues namely the door handles on the first floor were loose and often came off. There were some cobwebs around the window catches in the front lounge. Although non of us were smokers the receptacle for the discarded cigarette ends was full. The downstairs shower and toilet next to the bedroom could do with modernising. On a positive note our dealings with Julie were excellent and she was very helpful.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. It's really good to get feedback from guests as it gives us the chance to continue to improve and get things right. I'll be sure to get those door handles tightened and mention to the team about the cobwebs and outside cigarette bin.

  • "My Party were extremely satisfied with the property in all respects,regrettably it was already booked for the following Christmas."

    The one aspect which could have ensured a recommendation as Wheelchair friendly was to remove the stone at the rear entry point from the car park and the provision of a custom made moveable ramp to the kitchen. The adequate size of the ground floor bedroom together with close access to your shower and toilet meant you were only a whisper away from perfection. P.S perhaps the removal of the stone would have been a. Contravention of the terms of Grade 2 listing.?

    Thanks you so much for the outstanding review after your resent stay at The Lodge. It's truly is a wonderful property and the gardens and outdoor space make it a perfect choice for a get together with friends and family. It's a good suggestion about the wheelchair access and I'll be sure to pass it on to the team. We do have other large properties around the country so I'll send you the details and maybe one of those would be suitable for you Christmas vacation.

  • "We had a wonderful family get together at The Lodge."

    It was warm, cosy and had a homely atmosphere. The property provided all the facilities our party of 17( including three children, a baby and a dog) required. The kitchen was well equipped and had plenty of storage space and the bathrooms/toilets were good, however the toilet next to the annexe could do with an upgrade. The adults enjoyed the hot tub and the kids loved and made full use of the extensive garden. There were no complaints from any of our group except for comments on the passing traffic on the adjacent A170. We found Samantha and Julie most helpful when we were planning and preparing for our 3 day break at The Lodge. We can recommend The Lodge to anyone, however those who prefer accommodation away from busy roads may not find it suitable.

    Hi Susan and thanks you so much for taking the time to write a review about your resent stay at The Lodge. It really is a beautiful property with all the space you would need to enjoy some quality time away with all the family. We do have plans for the downstairs annexe toilet so thank you for your comment and I would agree with you. The property is located close to A170 which can at times be quite busy but does make The Lodge a great easy accessible property when guests have to travel from all different locations. I'm pleased you found The Lodge homely, that's exactly what we want to hear and lots of effort went into making sure there was lots of storage space, especially in the kitchen.

  • "Disappointed."

    For the amount of rental money spent on the property it did not live up to expectations. The property on arrival was not as clean as it should of been. The kitchen floor, hall floor and bathroom floors really needed a deep clean. They were dirty. The attic room bedside drawers and wardrobe were broken. 2 tea towels left for 16 people for a weeks stay was not enough. The heating for the house was odd. It was incredibly hot in the morning and then not very warm from teatime and evening onwards. The dining room was very dreary and lacked any warmth. It also had damp in there on the walls. The bedding was average and most of the divans didn’t have a valance not very appealing. The property needs some love and attention there was damp patches in alot of the rooms and the paint work work showed this off. The annex was cold and needed the heaters on constantly.

    Hi Sally, I am so sorry that you felt the property wasn't up to scratch for your visit. Our cleanliness is of upmost importance, and we are normally praised by our guests in their feedback on this. Clearly we have missed the mark on this occasion and we will look into why this has happened. I'm sure you can appreciate that we had extremely cold and wet weather on the lead up to your stay, and this has clearly affected the property (being so old), in terms of some water ingress etc. Again, we will be looking at this as a matter of priority. We will be in touch, as we would really value any further feedback. Thanks again, and kind regards. Property Owner

    Kitchen could of been better equipped with a few more appliance , like a slow cooker and electric whisk , coffee machine . The Tv broke on the first morning in the main living room, this was the room with the log burner which spoilt things slightly as we all had to use one living room. I had paid extra for extra logs which obviously weren’t needed because of the tv problem . We did report it but the maintenance guy was out of the area ……

    The hot tub was a great addition, as was the large enclosed garden. Similar to other reviews the house is very well maintained and in very good working order, the bathroom and toilet in the annex just look a bit tired but work absolutely fine. The only thing that could have been a little clearer on the listing is the description of the top floor bedrooms, you have to go through the twin to access the double which is fine for a family but doesn’t really work as well for a group of friends each with an infant in the bedroom. The owner was very helpful when we sent an email asking for a clearer description and we managed to make it work but we felt it could have been listed a bit clearer. Overall an excellent stay and we would definitely book again.

Kitchen well equipped with plates, glasses, cutlery etc for a large number of people , something we have struggled with in other holiday homes.

    We all enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to people. a few minor issues are- The cottage is situated next to 2 roads, one of them being a busy main road which made it noisy at times. Obviously there isnt anything the owners could do about this, but we would have prefered somehting a little more isolated. The garden was not very secure. Near the bottom there was not much of a boundry as parts of fencing had fallen down and had some nails poking out. It was not horrendously bad, guessing just damage from over the winter and just needed a little tlc. These were, as we said, minor issues and did not ruin our enjoyment of our stay at this cottage and we would recommend it.

  • "The Lodge was a perfect house for our large family Christmas."

    We were initially concerned that it wouldn't feel like Christmas but we need not have worried as it had certainly been made to feel Christmassy, thank you! We were grateful that we could get in touch with the owners/ managing agents fairly early on as there were a few issues that needed addressing and getting an answer from Sykes was impossible. Thank you for sorting out the secondary glazing for our stay and although I know that you are in the process of changing these, we do still feel that clients should be made aware that some windows can't open if these are left in place. Despite the size and age of the property the house was extremely cosy. The one area that could do with a little more warmth was the corridor to the downstairs bedroom - perhaps curtains at the doors/ carpet on the floor? With all 15 of us using WiFi, we were grateful to have super efficient broadband! Thank you! The property is fairly well stocked with equipment although a few more mugs and extra tea towels (or let clients know to bring more than the two provided) would be beneficial. The dishwasher is also fairly old and although it worked ok during our stay, is held together by a plastic wire and has a very wobbly bottom shelf. It was also really handy to have a hand soap for each basin, thank you. The garden is huge and although we didn't use it as such, having the grounds and the hot tub was fantastic. We visited The Coachman Inn a number of times and can highly recommend. The little shop that also serves fish and chips was very handy and the butchers also has various provisions. There are some good walks, both local and further a field. If I could give the owners/ managers a separate star rating it would be a 5 as they were always at the end of a phone and very happy to sort out the few issues we had despite it being Christmas. I am absolutely sure that once all the updates have been completed at The Lodge, it will receive a very well deserved 5 star too.

    Thankyou for your feedback. We have taken it all on board. From buying more mugs to the curtains, and warmer flooring in the annex. It was a pleasure speaking to you and I wish you all the best for 2022 Property Owner

    Brand new boiler apparently and it kept breaking. The windows don’t open and considering how hot September has been it was very hot in the house. For the amount of money they are charging they could afford to get the windows fixed. It’s just all looking really run down, needs an overhaul. The garden however is great, so spacious. The kids loved it. Thankfully the weather was lovely so we didn’t have to spend much time in the house. I certainly won’t be paying next years prices as I don’t feel they reflect the property at all… you are paying for what’s around you.

    Thank you for your feedback it is appreciated. I understand your frustration regarding the boiler having to be re set a few times. As a new boiler had recently been installed we didn't think there would be any problems. There was a small amount of air trapped which caused this and this has now been resolved. I hope you liked your flowers and chocolates I brought to you one of the time as an apology.

    These included several seaside resorts, a heritage steam railway, a theme park, pretty villages, National Trust properties and easy access to the Cleveland Way which was good for long coastal walks. The house accommodated all 17 of us with ease and the garden space was extensive. The Hot Tub was very popular. Both the house and garden were somewhat 'tired' yet, with investment, could be uplifted to outstanding. The accommodation could be (and was) used flexibly for the benefit of single family and group activities. Main disappointments revolve around cleaning. The following aspects were unsatisfactory; the cooker interior was in desperate need of a professional clean (we were not happy to use it), the kitchen floor (tiled) was long overdue a thorough clean, there were too many cobwebs and the surface of the kitchen island was sticky. Minor disappointments included, limited towel and toilet roll provision, a wet wall in the attic bedroom, a smell of sulphur from the attic sink, an ineffective dishwasher, and the attic and small 1st floor bedroom beds being less than comfortable.

  • "Lovely place it was huge and definitely did what it needed to do."

    I wouldn’t say it was 5 star though, maybe 4 stars for a couple of reasons: It wasn’t very clean, all the coasters and matts were still dirty and a bread stick and plaster was found down the side of the sofa in one of the living rooms. Some of the bedrooms were absolutely freezing, I believe this is because the radiators didn’t work properly and needed bleeding as they were on but wouldn’t get any hotter and unlike other rooms in the house they had single panes of glass where as other rooms had a perspex sheeting ontop. When we arrived it would have been nice to have some sort of welcome hamper with a bottle of wine/prosecco and maybe some biscuit, tea bags and milk in the fridge, as it was a lot of money for 3 nights but there was no nice little thank you waiting for us. I have paid less before and got a lovely welcome hamper in previous Sykes cottages. I would have also expected a couple of matches and firelighters for the wood burner as the first night we couldn’t get it lit. It did say on the website these would be provided for the first night. Some of the rooms were a little cheap looking, one room was decorated amazingly, if all the rooms were like this then it would have made it feel a lot more up class and 5 star. The downstairs room was nice but the corridor leading up to it seemed really outdated, almost like a school locker room, this was one of the rooms that were freezing. I would also add it would benefit from having more mirrors in each room as it was hard for a large group of women to all get ready at the same time by sharing mirrors. And possibly more sockets closer to the mirrors as it was hard drying and styling hair so far away from the mirrors. On the other hand the showers were always lovely and hot, it was a lovely quiet village, the kitchen was amazing I loved the huge island it fit all our alcohol, snacks and more for the weekend. There’s a great pub up the road called The Coachman Inn, serving amazing food, but the service there was rubbish, I’m saying this just so others who go can expect that. The hot tub was great, it had a lot of grit in it obviously from people walking on the decking, but this would be hard to manage. It is a 15 minute drive from Dalby forest and a 20 minute drive from Scarborough. I would definitely recommend it to large familie/parties. Thanks for having us! Loren

  • "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.

According to the website you were able to relet the house for the date in July, furthermore I had been given the new price for June by your salesperson at the time of change.

If you don't want to cook, we can recommend the Fish & Chip shop in the village, and also the Cedarbarn Farm Shop & Café, near Pickering, for an excellent Sunday lunch. We did have a boiler failure during our stay but the owner quickly arranged for a plumber. There were a number of minor issues in the house that need attention, but overall it was well-kept, and various members of our party enjoyed the large garden and the hot-tub.

    The patio doors to the kitchen did not work properly and we had difficulty in opening and closing them. The back gates were in need of repair works and they kept swinging open in the wind and couldn't be locked safely. The advertisement for the wood stove should indicate that the starter pack will only last one day and perhaps highlight this in the final email, as we could have brought some from home but had to go out and buy additional wood. Only one toilet roll per toilet was provided - 4 toilets, and with us booking for 17 adults you can guess this didn't last long. We then had to go out and buy a 16 pack for the weekend. No one could connect to the WIFI all weekend and we followed the instructions to use the password at the back of the hub but it did not work. Finally, the hassle I had trying to get in touch with the owners for the key code to the property was terrible. I would recommend that this is controlled by Sykes Cottages themselves as getting the key code on the day we are to commence our holiday, when most of our family members and friends had already set off from their homes, unknowing whether they would have somewhere to sleep that night is ridiculous!! The owner did eventually get in touch when we had already arrived and been given the key code from Sykes and kindly allowed us to stay until 5pm on our final day, however, the damage so to speak had already been done and completely put me off booking with Sykes Cottages again!!

    The well kept garden was secure for all the children, who played there all week, especially in more overgrown section which was their jungle hideaway and adventure playground. The kitchen was well appointed and was the focus of the house. Plenty of good quality crockery and cookware so that we could prepare family meals together; a pity therefore that there were a couple of minor items missing. Good knives need a sharp edge, but I couldn't find a method of sharpening them. Resorted to using an old trick of using a terracotta plant pot rim to get a decent edge, until a late arrival brought a steel with her. Also a whisk would be useful, as making scrambled eggs for twelve proved to be an issue. The bathroom and shower rooms were very clean and well maintained, there was plenty of provision for the number of guests the property can hold. Similarly, bedrooms are airy and light, with good quality bed linen. A couple of the rooms had wardrobes that are looking a bit tired, but this is another minor concern. To my mind the bigger issue was that in a majority of rooms the Windows would not open, in fact the sash windows were covered with a sheet of clear Perspex. During our visit it was warm and the inability to open windows prevented us having a cooling breeze circulating the upper floors. We would return to The Lodge, it is very easy to reach Scarborough and other parts of this beautiful county. The location is superb, the general setting is superb and the house makes having a family holiday easy.

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.

There are Victorian tiles along the hallway, Edwardian tiles in the annex and cast-iron garden furniture to relax on with a cup of tea.

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!
