    Very peaceful and private, just what we were after. Really enjoyed the hot tub! I'm sure we will return. Thanks, Dale & Ali

    This is a fantasticspacious lodge that has a lovely homely feel as soon as you walk through the door. This place has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the fresh loaf, eggs, milk and variety of jams were a lovely touch. The place was immaculate when we arrived. We loved the outdoor space (very fog friendly) and found an area with lots of books, games and even some treats for the dogs. There was an honesty box which we were absolutely happy to contribute to! We didn’t use the sauna, but the hot tub was great. Would highly recommend and would love to return soon. Thank you

    The hot tub and sauna was amazing, the surrounding woodland was so beautiful, our dog loved exploring it. There were even leads attached to the trees incase your dog likes to bolt (cattle in the next field and lots of wildlife). We loved the little touches that made it a very special trip, the little tray of jams and tiger loaf, wine and prosecco left on the beautifully decorated table, fridge stocked with milk, eggs and butter and the soaps and body wash in the bathroom, So thoughtful. Izzy was very accomodating aswell, she understand that my dog needed space due to his reactivity and organised to check the hot tub around us which was really appreciated. We absolutly loved our stay and would highly reccomend. We will be booking again in the future.

  • "We absolutely love this lodge, we have been several times and will definitely go again."

    The location of it is suburb, set in a woodland behind electric gates and away from the road it is so peaceful and quiet, our dog loves a roam round the woodland there and then a walk on the moors later in the day. She happily sleeps in front of the log burner while I soak away the days aches in the hot tub. The kitchen / diner is very spacious and with a large table the whole party can play board games or cards, we take our own but there are a variety of games in the out house. It’s clear to see how much pride the owners take on this lodge and they are very approachable if you need to speak with them about anything at all. Thank you for another fantastic stay… hope to come back soon

  • "This is a lovely property, very quiet, and well appointed."

    However, some of the pictures are clearly quite old and slightly inaccurate now. Just some small points of note - washing machine is very dirty, I had to clean it before use - if you take the drawer out you will see the dirt. No starter fuel pack as advertised, only fuel to purchase. Decking is a little tired & needs a clean, and no furniture to sit on at the back, the bird feeders have seen better days too! No utensils available to clean out the fire in living room or in sauna. They were both full of old ash when we arrived.

    ThankYou for the for the comments . The washing machine isn’t very dirty and is quite an insulting and dramatic response , if it was a problem we should have been contacted . The decking does get slippy during winter and is always cleaned at Easter but unfortunately in winter and being in a woodland area this is something that is quite hard to prevent . The decking at the back of the property is north facing hence why we don’t have any seating . (Even in summer it’s cold) . The view makes it inviting but believe me it’s always chilly . We have seating on the south side and an outside sitting area that is sheltered in the outbuilding. We feel this is more than adequate . The fire in the living room is a wood burning stove and relies on an ash bed and doesn’t have a grate. this does not require any utensils, the instructions point this out quite clearly . You drew my attention to the listing about a starter pack and it is really quite unclear and the description Sykes have put doesn’t really make sense , we however provide logs you can purchase or you were welcome to buy your own and re stock our supply . But again I wasn’t asked about this while you stayed with us . The sauna is cleaned this again wasn’t full of ash as I cleaned it out between guests this has a draw that pulls out so again no shovel needed. The sauna does have a small poker that is hanging on a hook next to the fire in the sauna . Re the pictures we have fitted a new kitchen since the pictures were taken , and had new furniture in the bedroom. two years later we are still waiting on Sykes to come and take up to date pictures. (Maybe due to covid) we never anticipate it been a problem as they were all new furnishings and of a better quality and more up to date . Customer feedback is always valid and appreciated but it seems you were unhappy with our property. If we knew you were unhappy we have refunded you and you could have taken your holiday elsewhere . We always work with our guests, and are always a phone call away . Issues do occur but nothing was brought to out attention when you stayed with us . Property Owner

    It is so peaceful and quiet yet close enough if you wish to drive and visit Whitby or the surrounding areas. The birds and wildlife you can see from the floor to ceiling windows was wonderful, as well as being able to spot them from the sauna or hot tub in the garden.

    We visited at Christmas time and there were lovely decorations up throughout. The welcome pack was lovely and a nice treat upon arrival. The lounge is a great size with a huge TV. Unfortunately the local tv mast was down when we stayed but the owners ensured we had access to all the main streaming services so being able to use those was brilliant. The cottage was clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra pillows if needed. The “outside lounge” as my kids called it was fantastic for sitting it and enjoying a nice drink in the evening with great heaters taking the chill off. There was a fantastic selection of games, books, DVDs for adults and kids with an Xbox available as well. The grounds are great for dogs with a doggy shower in the out house along with dog shampoo and towels. There ideas a big gate protecting the property with plenty of parking. I would highly recommend Pond Farm if you’re looking for somewhere to chill out with quick access to the seaside.

    Lovely cottage, plenty of space in the garden for kids to explore and play ball games. Well equipped cottage, hot tub and sauna were amazing too and made our trip. It is situated within woodland which we loved as we like spotting birds and wildlife and even had a woodpecker visit the bird table ! It’s close to local pub which you could walk to in 15 mins easily. Without trying to be picky there is a stagnant pond to the rear of the cottage that is at the bottom of a slope next to the woodland. Other than being an unpleasant spot for the football to roll into I assume it’s assisting with the midge population too ! Not sure what purpose it serves really, However you can’t see it or smell it from the cottage and it will not put us off returning as we are intending to do next year. The owners are really friendly and were great helping us with local amenities while we were there, even provided some bikes for us to use ! Overall a great place to stay and we would fully recommend it

The property

Discover Pond Farm Woodlands, a beautiful log cabin situated on the outskirts of Ugthorpe, only a short distance from the likes of Whitby, with glorious views and woodland bringing you a peaceful stay.

Whether you are coming together as a family, or joining friends, this lovely cottage is somewhere special to build lasting memories, or simply to begin a remarkable adventure.

The wonderful rural views wrap around the open-plan living area, red layered sofas rest before a woodburning stove, and floor-to-ceiling windows invite the outside in.

Unwind here, or even relax on the decked terrace area with a glass of something refreshing whilst the children make the most of the Xbox and Blu-ray player.

Spend the days as you wish, then settle down in the bedroom of your choice; there is a master suite with its own shower room, a double, and a delightful twin, separated by bedside tables.

Wake up amidst the delightful interior, then gather with your loved ones to plan your day trips, perhaps at the lovely breakfast bar.

Save some time to make the most of the hot tub and sauna, well-appointed for the magnificent scenery and woodland, where you may even spot a deer or two.

With a collection of patio areas and lighting available for when the sun sets, you will never want to leave.

Two pubs are only a stroll from the cottage, very pleasant after a day’s walking the numerous public footpaths and bridleways in the area.

The seaside villages of Sandsend and Runswick Bay are close by and each provide lovely, sandy beaches, fossil hunting and beachcombing.

The market towns of Pickering and Hutton-le-Hole, as well as Whitby, are just the start of your unique getaway.
