  • "The patio is south facing so gets the sun all day which is great but desperately needs an umbrella for some shade."

    More cups and glasses are required as when there are four people there are only 5 mugs, 5 tumblers and 5 wine glasses no cups, there were plenty of empty cupboards so no lack of space. Lodge in a great site and a good position .

  • "We had a fabulous holiday."

    The lodge surpassed our expectations, the setting so peaceful, the weather was the icing on the cake! We did an online shop at home with Asda and had it delivered straight to the lodge.

  • "Comfortable and well equipped lodge with plenty of space for me, my daughter and dog."

    Couple of niggles: awkward lock on patio doors need fixing, also broken shower bracket in bathroom. I would have liked a small electric Nespresso machine as I miss having good coffee and I’m afraid the cafetière doesn’t do it for me. Small ones can be purchased very cheaply. We loved the area and the dog friendly beach. The Bakery in the Shed (in the lane next to Runswick Bay Hotel)is wonderful, tasty bread and amazing cakes - lemon drizzle, Portuguese tarts, apple crumble slices etc. Danby National Park Centre is less than half an hours drive and has an Art Gallery with changing exhibitions, excellent crafts in the shop, and permanent galleries devoted to the National Park. Also an outdoor area suitable for children and great cafe, both dog friendly.

  • "Lovely very comfortable lodge in a peaceful location."

    Had everything you needed including washing machine which wasn't mentioned in the information. Nice welcome pack left as well. Would certainly book again.

  • "Positives: A fabulous lodge on a very peaceful site, in a beautiful location."

    Situated between 2 lovely walks along the Cleveland Way (3.8 miles to Staithes & 9 miles to Whitby). The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. But it would have been useful to have known about it in advance. Negatives: • Broken shower bracket in en-suite (previously reported by other guests). • No live ITV channels (previously reported by other guests). • On 6/5/22 we checked with Sykes Cottages to see if Bramblewick lodge had a washing machine. We were told us that none of the lodges had one. It did !! • No ironing board or iron (which is odd given that it has a washing machine). • The lock on the main door to the lodge was temperamental in that, on occasions, it wouldn’t lock/unlock. • The patio doors would not close properly and are clearly out of alignment. We had to pull the door to the left in order to close it correctly (previously reported by other guests). • More general information about the surrounding area would have been useful: Eg. (1) Local walking guides (fortunately we took our own and have left them for future guests); (2) public transport – we discovered that the bus stops were opposite the Runswick Bay Hotel and that the X4 bus runs every half hour to/from Whitby & Middlesborough. • The lack of a site office was a little disconcerting. What would happen in an emergency?

  • "The property was lovely and very clean."

    Very quiet and relaxing.It’s a pity we found one or two minor problems on arrival ie shower bracket broken,but just holding the shower head on,curtain rails a bit askew where brackets coming away from wall.These were reported.However nothing to put us off.It was nice to find some food essentials had been left for us.Despite previous comments we found no problems with the TV.

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay at Bramblebrook."

    The lodge was spotless on arrival and had everything for my wife I , and a great enclosed deck for our little dog Milli. The area is great to get out to quaint little coastal villages like Sandsend , Saltburn and Staithes as well as Redcar and Whitby. The weather was also kind to us. All in all a great holiday.

  • "The lodge itself was beautiful however 1: We had an issue on the first day with the patio door not closing it took quite a while to get through to you by telephone and the door was not fixed up until leaving 2: Did not appreciate coming back to the lodge for lunch to find a maintenance guy looking at the cooker would have been nice to be informed he would be there especially as this was a holiday."

    3: Did not think it was professional to have to keep bringing parcels in for the owners of the lodge 4: There was no live T.V which should have been made aware of before arrival yes there was net flix however on 2 occasions we couldn't access it as it said too many devices were using the account "ian" 5: did not enjoy being woken up by the diggers directly behind the bedroom at 7.30am/7.45am each morning should have a note on the listing about noisy building works. Such a shame had the above not happened would have been perfect

  • "Bramble wick was an excellent lodge to stay in."

    Very clean and comfy with all mod cons including dishwasher and wine cooler! We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend, there was plenty of room for us 4 adults and 1 dog. The only thing I would suggest is better instructions of where to find the lodge once you arrive! We went into the first main gate which took us onto the wrong part of the site and we ended up trying to get into the wrong lodge!! So from the main rd, go down the lane and take the second gate on the right (not the first).

The property

Staithes 2.8 miles.

Nestled in the small village of Runswick Bay, on the coastline of North Yorkshire, rests this contemporary lodge, Bramblewick.

Set within easy reach of an exciting selection of seaside resorts, Bramblewick is a charming base for a small family looking to explore the sights of this picturesque part of the country.

Two off-road parking spaces greet you upon arrival to the holiday home, leading you up to a small set of decked steps and over the threshold, entering into the beautifully-appointed open-plan living space, remarkably designed with a contemporary décor, stylishly contrasting with the wooden furnishings to maintain a homely ambiance.

Let the little ones nestle in on the sofa to enjoy a spot of television as you take perch at the breakfast bar, where you can unwind with a glass of wine after a fun-filled day as the designated chef prepares a hearty meal for the family to enjoy.

Gather the group around the dining table to serve, or in the warmer months, head out through the patio door to the veranda to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, soaking in the fresh sea air and toasting to a fantastic holiday.

As the day draws to a close, prepare for bed in the family bathroom, fit with a walk-in shower as well as a bath, where you can soak your muscles and enjoy a solace escape into a good book after the day’s activities.

The lodge boasts two attractive bedrooms to choose from, a king-size, with the benefit of an en-suite shower room, and a twin, both thoughtfully laid out with a neutral colour scheme and eye-catching wooden features, providing the perfect space to rest your head.

Pack your bucket and spade and head to Runswick Bay beach, recently named ‘Best Beach of the Year’ 2020 by The Times, for a fun-filled day out with the family, taking a revitalizing dip in the water, discovering wildlife in the rock pools and doing a spot of fossil hunting amongst the rubble.

Travel further along the coastline to the village of Staithes, once one of the largest fishing ports in the North East, and enjoy a bite to eat at The Endeavour, a seafront bistro boasting views across the scenic water, or indulge in a portion of fish and chips as you soak in the views of the harbour.

There's a host of local history on display at the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre, where you can discover the heritage of Staithes as well as the history of maritime adventurer, Captain Cook.

Head to the popular seaside resort of Scarborough for an exciting day out, battling the kids on the dodgems at Luna Park or discovering the variety of sea creatures on display at SEA LIFE.

Be sure to choose Bramblewick as your base for creating memories that will last a lifetime in this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
