Cabin Fever

Posted 15-Jul-2017 on HomeAway
Here’s the good and the bad for future renters. The good was a nice ensuite shower, clean bathrooms, vacuumed floors, washer/dryer, convenient private parking, quiet, good heating and fabric couches. The bad included dirty utensils, pots/pans and bed cover which had human and likely animal hair on it that we had to rewash, the clapped out dining chairs (you sink into a deep, uncomfortable hole in each one because of the wear), the lack of a fan to deal with the high heat we experienced on several days and most important the totally inadequate WiFi service. The WiFi is sourced from the adjacent caravan park and we had to pay extra for it (all other places we’ve stayed in provide this service, similar to including hot water and electricity, in the fee). We expected at least to be able to watch a few videos at night, check email, surf, etc., as we have been able to do at all of the other numerous UK properties that we have rented. Instead, the rep for the WiFi service recommended that we not watch any video since it would use up the small allowance quickly (10 GBP for 3.5 gb for one week) so we didn’t. We then discovered that the very weak signal made it virtually impossible to even do web basics such as checking email or surfing sites because we either couldn’t get on the web at all or at best the connectivity kept dropping and was as slow as dial-up. In our case when we travel good reliable WiFi is an absolute must for us and had we known the aforementioned it would have been an absolute deal breaker for renting this property. So be warned if this is important to you. Otherwise, this is an adequate place to stay since it’s close to York, Harrogate and other wonderful places to visit in North Yorkshire. By the way, you may have new owners since this property up for sale, but the WiFi is sourced from the adjacent caravan park.

Lovely, homely lodge in a beautiful setting.

Posted 06-Nov-2016 on HomeAway
This lodge was perfect for us and our two boys. It's set on a quiet caravan park in lovely surroundings with a play area and lots of room for the kids to run around. The lodge itself is modern, comfortable, clean and fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. We enjoyed it so much we were so sorry to leave. Thank you for a lovely stay.

A nicely situated lodge , a quiet site with helpful staff .

Posted 13-Sep-2016 on HomeAway
We only spent 3 nights here , but immediately felt at home, everything was as it was advertised and it was very clean . The lodge has all you need for a self catering holiday. We found the area was very nice with lots of amenities locally, we especially enjoyed Fountains Abbey, and Hemsley .

Wonderful Relaxing Stay!

Posted 05-Sep-2016 on HomeAway
Had a lovely stay at the Lodge - everything you need to hand. Very spacious and clean. Lovely views, watching sunset on the veranda. Close to boroughbridge, knaresborough harrogate etc etc. Not much to do for children unfortunately but spent most of the time out so that is ok.

Lovely, well located clean and well equipped lodge in very peaceful surroundings

Posted 29-Jun-2016 on HomeAway
The lodge is lovely, with lots of storage and plenty of seating, plus 2 bathrooms which was ideal for us (4 adults sharing). From the lodge there are lots of places to explore without needing to travel too far, plus the site itself is very quiet and relaxing so if you don't feel like going anywhere at all, then that's a good option too! The kitchen is well equipped and David the owner is very helpful if you have any problems or queries. Would happily return to this lodge as we had a fantastic time!

Comfortable, well equipped lodge

Posted 15-Jun-2016 on HomeAway
We had a lovely short break. The site is very quiet but we were using the lodge as a base for visiting Harrogate and York. It was very comfortable and had plenty equipment. The staff were very helpful when we were planning our trip to York. We would have been happy to stay for longer and would recommend the accommodation and location.
