  • "We really enjoyed our stay in the lodge very remote peaceful location nearby Masham and Bedale have all you need."

    Lovely places to visit in the area and it’s so beautiful. Weather was a little against us but I still managed one early morning cuppa outside on the deck Lodge was lovely and cosy rated slightly low for cleanliness as someone really needs to check underneath and behind the beds and the bottom frame of the shower needs a good clean but overall standard wasn’t too bad. It has all you need but you do need to take your own towels which you are advised of when booking (can see some people have previously mentioned this so wanted to clarify) Wouldn’t put us off visiting again our break really wasn’t long enough to be honest a lovely little find

    All that you would need for your stay . Lots of places to visit within minutes away. Enjoyed Christmas week with my friend Kate and her Spaniel Rhea . Only down side was no one thought to leave us any milk or tea bags for a drink while waiting for Tesco groceries.

    The only small criticism would be the cleanliness of the blinds and the dark area in the corner over the cooking area . A light would be most useful ! Apart from that we had a lovely stay !

    Lovely quiet location and some fantastic places to visit nearby. Only one problem. We found the property quite dark. Even during the day. We had to have the lights on most of the time even though it was sunny outside. I hope we didn't run up too much of an electric bill. Maybe its because we're elderly and our eyesight isn't as good as it should be!! Three days were not enough though.

    ..clsan ,comfortable and everything you could need .could happily live there all the time . Saw reviews about the decking not closed off ,all I can say is their dogs were not well behaved if it was a problem.. .my 2 little dogs loved it .they were able to explore without running off . Ideal spot for travelling for days out.. .Would happily stay there again .

    Hello Thanks for the lovely review. You make a fair point regarding the decking. If however guests need a secure area for pets we have other lodges available with enclosed decking areas. Hope to see you again. Kind Regards Property Owner

    It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The accommodation was roomy and well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable holiday. The TV was excellent in all rooms. Wi Fi was slow and occasionally dropped out, but was adequate given the location. It was very peaceful and there were some good walks nearby. Our dogs loved it, as did our quite fussy grandson. There is plenty to see and do in the locality... this part of North Yorkshire is beautiful! We would certainly return.

  • "Absolutely disgusting lodge."

    From first walking in there it smelt so bad, the amount of dust that was around the property made it quite obvious nobody goes in to clean it between stays. There was brown marks on the walls, the plugs had been chewed and stains of the sheets. My daughter has asthma and within 30 minutes if being there it flared it up, so we had to leave. As we didn't get there until late and my son was over tired, and my daughter was coughing quite bad we left and found alternative accommodation. I contacted Sykes the next morning to let them know and request a refund as it wasn't in any state to be slept in, after contacting the owner he has refused us a refund. So over £300 wasted and 2 upset children. Do not waste your money on this place!

    Hello We do not recognise your comments as being accurate. They were submitted by yourself following an unsubstantiated request for a full refund being refused by both Sykes and ourselves. We would like to mention the very positive feedback both before and immediately following your booking. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we thought the lodge and its location was great."

    As always, before booking we read reviews which determines if we are going to book or not. We were concerned about having no gate on the decking as we have two small Cockapoos so thanks to previous reviews my husband put something together at home which we took with us, without this it would have been a complete nightmare, especially with a friendly chicken hanging around. We also noticed that people had complained about not having enough light in the cabin but with it being 26 degrees outside this was a bonus for us. In hot weather it was lovely and cool so wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. How to work the oven, hob and microwave is in the kitchen draw but to be fair it was easy, we had no difficulties. Will we stay again? Yes, but I’ll probably take my own bedding as it was definitely in need of replacement. We were advised that there would be no towels so another one to remember as I’m sure these could be easily forgotten. Walks - many to choose from and all lovely. These were in walking distance from the cabin. The owner is contactable at all times but a visit asking if all is okay and a hello would have been a bonus

Only one bin bag left and 1 toilet roll so would recommend bringing some essentials. As was dog friendly could of done with a gate as not enclosed so dogs had to stay in whilst we weren’t outside. Plenty of clothes storage and useful to have two bathrooms. Wi-Fi and tvs were fine.

  • "The lodge was very spacious and in a lovely quiet location but only a short drive to local amenities in either Masham or Bedale."

    We especially liked the surrounding wildlife with squirrels and rabbits and the odd owl or two! However, we felt the lodge could have done with some comfortable outside chairs instead of a hard bench. Also the dining chairs were very uncomfortable and 2 of the sofas had a very unpleasant smell. The beds were very comfortable but could have done with new pillows (they were flat!) and duvet covers. The ones on the single beds wouldn’t fasten at the bottom as all of the press studs were broken. If these issues were addressed it would be a top notch holiday lodge.

  • "A genuine lovely holiday Lodge."

    Full marks all round, except in the comfort rating where I deducted one point, reluctantly it has to be said. Reason, the Lodge was lovely and warm, except for our bedroom, where the heater never came on during our week stay, I did not attempt to alter any settings other than check it was connected to the electricity, which it was. We don't like a "hot" bedroom, but it is nice to go to bed in a warm room, even if the heater has turned off. Likewise its nice to get up to a warm room, even if the heater has turned itself off after warming the room a little. Maybe our ages have got something to do with it, into our seventies we like to be warm. Would we recommend this Lodge, 100% yes, it is a lovely place to be.

    This site was advertised as pet friendly, but you have to take your dogs offsite to do their business, with no poo bins provided, including inadequate exercise areas for the dogs apart from using a dirt track leading to residents adjacent property and fields on either side. Charged £15.00 for bringing an additional dog????. The kitchen utensils were limited, one pot with a handle and 3 of the rest were 2 handled stew pots, no scissors to cut things open, beds were uncomfortable. No towels provided apart from a dish towel and a floor towel for stepping out of the shower. No welcome pack provided not even a small carton of milk for those arriving after a long journey. The parking facilities are poor due to the closeness of the neighbouring Pine lodge, which required the residents to reverse their two cars around the bend then continue along the driveway to permit them to turn round using another lodge residents parking area. We were even disturbed by a Television Engineer who arrived to change an aerial, of which we were never advised of. The narrow road leading to the lodges are covered in potholes over various areas although some we noticed were filled in after we arrived. Beware when using the route as you may damage your car as well as meeting tractors / other cars at blind bends with no refuge areas provided. Although the lodge itself was clean, we will not be returning as it's not adequate for domestic animals.

  • "Pet tolerant at best!"

    First impressions were great. Nice and off the beaten track and secluded so we thought it would be nice and relaxing with our 3 dogs. On entering the property were welcomed with a sign saying ‘ welcome to your pet friendly holiday’ (or words to that effect) followed by an extensive list of what and where they dogs were not allowed to do or go; not in the bedrooms, not on the furniture. Answer me this, if they are not allowed in the bedrooms, they have to remain in the living room? So how do we keep them off the furniture while asleep behind a closed door? Not allowed to toilet on the site. Really? I can understand making sure we clean up, which we did, but how do I tell my elderly dog to cross his legs for 150-200 yards to the allowable road for toileting in the pitch black when he is in and out every few hours? Not realistic at all! ‘Make sure property is clean else a charge will be made’. Could have tried that before we got there! Had to wash ALL the cutlery, glasses, plates, pans etc at least 3 times before we could use them. Rest of property was cleaned to within an inch of its life both on arrival and departure. No towels???? That was a nice surprise after going there after two previous holiday locations where they were provided. No internet or 3G/4G so we couldn’t check the write up to see if we should have brought our own. No phone signal to ring the owner either.

Set across one floor, on entering you are met with the spacious and characterful living space, complete with open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area with a door leading out to the decked veranda.

Suitable for families, the two bedrooms include a double, and a twin room with en-suite facilities.

The lodge is complete with a family shower room including a power shower, ideal and refreshing after a day exploring the local countryside.

There is also a large, private and secluded decking area along the front and side of the property, with wooden furniture - a great place to relax and enjoy the sunshine.

Nearby, the amenities of Masham include the twice weekly market, the Theakston and Black Sheep brewery visitor centres and a choice of friendly pubs and restaurants.

The popular market towns of Richmond, Leyburn and Hawes are all within easy reach, as are the breathtaking Jervaulx and Fountains Abbeys.

Spend a day shopping in the beautiful town of Harrogate or visit the small cathedral city of Ripon, the country's oldest city.

Further afield is the bustling, historic city of York where you can brave the climb to the top of the York Minster, or take a step back in time with a trip to the Jorvik Viking Centre.

With so many things to do and places to visit, this self-catering lodge is the perfect base for couples exploring North Yorkshire, all year round.

About the location


Ripon 9 miles; Bedale 6 miles; Northallerton 14 miles.

The historic little market town of Masham is situated in the lower reaches of pretty Wensleydale alongside the River Ure. Set in gently rolling farmland, the town boasts a huge market square, where a Wednesday market has been joined by a popular Saturday market. There are lots of walks around the area, including a 10-mile walk along the Ure, arguably one of the best in the UK. The town boasts a good range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs and has become best known perhaps as the home of two breweries Theakstons of Old Peculiar fame and the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year! The popular towns of Ripon, Thirsk, Northallerton, Richmond and Harrogate are an easy drive away. With so much to see and do in the area, this is a great place for a holiday in all seasons.
