  • "What a great start."

    Arrived to some lovely music playing and a log burning scene on the TV. Nice and warm and spotlessly clean. Everything you need has been thought of, owners obviously take a pride in the property and want guests to have a great time. Loved the huge hot tub which again kept spotless. Would definitely return in future. Suggest a guest book in property so feedback can be left.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Pond Farm."

    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.

  • "Thank you Izzy for welcoming us into your absolutely stunning cabin."

    We had a lovely stay and will be sure to book again. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the cabin was well equipped. If we could offer some constructive criticism and I must stree these aren't complaints: We would have liked hooks by the hot tub and in the sauna for gowns. We would prefer real logs, sticks etc but understand why you use the instant lights for guests. We couldn't find a lighter but luckily I found one in my glove compartment. We also couldn't find a pen to fill in your forms. Thank you again for a wonderful short break. Lee, Sophie & Ariya the Collie

  • "A very peaceful place to stay amid all the madness of the year so far."

    A very nice welcome pack and a little deer as a keepsake of our holiday. We saw deer, rabbits and a multitude of birds including a Barn Owl across the field and a couple of Nuthatches on the bird feeders once we had filled them up. We had stunning weather so no need to use the heating. Since being back at work it turns out one of my customers stayed in December for their 50th birthday, it's a small world.

  • "A wonderful holiday lodge for a special birthday celebration with the family."

    The lodge is situated in beautiful surroundings. A lovely welcome pack was awaiting us on our arrival. There were one one or two small points to note. We asked for a high chair for the baby but had to go and find it in the store cupboard and we were unable to use more than one drawer in the freezer due to a lot of ice. All of the family thoroughly enjoyed their holiday, making good use of the hot tub which was well maintained by the owner.

  • "We stayed here in July 2020 with our two boys aged 11 and 7."

    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.
