    First let me say that everything that is said about George and Yvonne in prevous reviews is very true. Helpful, polite, considerate and willing to put right anything found wrong. We did not arrive at Somerset Lodge unil 9 o'clock on the Friday night and unfortunately first impressions were not good. We stay in similiar lodges all over the UK seven or eight times a year and have done so for many years, however, the exterior condition of this lodge did not bode well. On entering we were confronted imediately with the smell of dogs (and found out by reading the Visitors Book, that two dogs had been in there previous to us). We always book lodges with hot tubes, therefore, we were despirately disappointed to find our hot tub full of dirty cloudy water. It was obvious it had not been changed since the previous occupants had vacated. In fairrness, when I mentioned it to George the following morning he came immediately and drained it, However, once drained it showed all the gunge, hair and rubbish (hairclips, sequins, stones and blocked bottom filters and jets) so my partner and I spent Saturday morning degunging it and giving it a good clean. Not something we expected to do. The top water filter did not work, so the top of the water always had a film on it. After another dreadful night on the lumpy double mattress, we decided to go and buy a mattress topper. When I told George what we intended, he did offer to pay for it, but as I needed one at home I told him I would be taking it with me at the end of the holiday. These lodges are advertised as Eco Lodges, however, there are no facilities to separate and recycle rubbish. It all goes into one rubbish bag and that is put onto a trailer near the entrance. Eco Lodges? I don't think so. I feel guilty in writing such a negative review but believe that people should be aware of what they are getting when paying out several hundreds of pounds of what could be their only annual holiday. However, as said above, George and Yvonne were a very nice couple. Would I return? I don't think so.

About the location


Scorton 2.25 miles; Richmond 8 miles; Northallerton 8 miles.

Kiplin is a small hamlet in North Yorkshire, just 2.25 miles from Scorton where you can find a convenience store and pubs and 8 miles from Richmond where cobbled streets and narrow alleys or 'wynds' enshrine over nine centuries of busy history and unique character. Within the town, narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled Market Place (which has a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market) and there are numerous shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. West of Richmond is All Creatures Great and Small Country, plus the county town of Northallerton is also close by and boasts market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when both sides of the High Street are home to stalls selling a wide range of goods and produce, and on the fourth Wednesday of the month the market is joined by a farmers' market. This is a wonderful holiday area, with so much to see and do.
