  • "Warm & cosy in the lodge."

    Wonderful views & sunsets over the fields. A quiet & peaceful spot for us to stay while visiting family & friends. Alpacas, buzzards & kestrels to see from the windows. John the owner was very helpful.

    John the host was a great guy and helpful too, thank you. We were also very lucky to see a baby Alpaca born one morning. Yes, we would definitely return.

    Very comfortable. It was a wet week when we stayed, but in such beautiful surroundings it was even a pleasure to just sit and watch the rain roll in. Thank you John!

  • "A fantastic holiday."

    Wonderful views over the surrounding coutryside but only 10 minutes away from Tickhill Village. The lodge was spacious with everything that you could need and the owner supplied a very nice and unexpected welcome basket waiting for us upon our arrival and he could not have been more friendly and helpful. Summed up in six words: spectacular views; cracking lodge; great host. All this and Alpacas too!

The property

Nestled in the lovely Yorkshire village of Tickhill, South Yorkshire discover this rustic single-storey lodge, Tilly’s Lodge.

Nestled amongst 4-acres of paddock where you can freely roam with and feed the owner's alpacas which are right on your doorstep, or relax by the wildlife pond, before sampling miles of public footpaths within a stone's throw of the property, perfect for spotting red kites and buzzards.

Also benefitting from an open-plan living space, the social hub of the home where you and your loved ones can spend quality time together, and off-road parking and a private decking area, Tilly’s Lodge welcomes six guests, ideal for couples, friends or families seeking a peaceful escape in South Yorkshire.

Upon entering your new abode, be impressed by the light and airy open-plan interior homing a kitchen with all the essential appliances required to make your self-catered stay a success, a dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove, a charming spot to curl up in on cooler evenings or admire the breathtaking views from the picture window.

Allow the allocated chef of the group to rustle up a tasty dish before settling down either at the dining table or out on the private decking, sinking a cold glass of fizz as the sun sets in the distance.

When the stars appear overhead, escape to a sleek bathroom to indulge a warm shower before drifting off into a well-deserved slumber in either one of two doubles or a twin.

In the local village of Tickhill, explore Tickhill Castle, in addition to several shops and pubs, ideal for stocking up on the essentials or treating your loved ones to a hearty pub lunch on the days you don’t want to cook!

In the city of Doncaster, enjoy the delights of Hexthorpe Park, Potteric Carr Nature Reserve, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery, Doncaster Racecourse and the 11th century Conisbrough Castle slightly further out, with its impressive structure and surrounding gardens.

Well-positioned to also spend the day in Sheffield, or traversing the Peak District National Park, you’ll have plenty to fill your days in South Yorkshire.

Enjoy a memorable retreat in this lovely region, with a stay at Tilly’s Lodge.

About the location

TICKHILL

Sheffield 18.5 miles.

Tickhill is a Yorkshire village with a history dating back to the Domesday Book. There are many traditional shops and pubs in Tickhill, which is a lovely place to explore, including the 12th century Tickhill Castle, which has had an eventful history; a battle between Prince John and his brother King Richard I and then the civil war of the 1640s when Oliver Cromwell paid it a visit! Today Tickhill Castle remains an impressive ruin, with its Norman gatehouse, foundations and moat, which are all accessible. The lovely millpond has a wide variety of ducks, and there is a very pleasant circular walk from it, a great way to take in the surroundings. Tickhill is in a superb position for Doncaster Races, which is 10 miles away, and the bright lights, theatres and shopping of Sheffield is only a 20 minute drive away. The Peak District National Park, Alton Towers and Sherwood Forest, the classic home of Robin Hood are all within easy reach. Bawtry, where the Mayflower Pilgrim Fathers came from, can be explored, while Lincoln is just 40 minutes away and a bit further are the Lincolnshire coast, York and Leeds, or The Deep submarium in Hull.
