Enjoy a special break with friends and family here, open up the doors and let the outside in creating a truly unique entertaining space, in a tranquil setting located in private grounds.

Situated on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park, this wonderful Scandinavian-style lodge offers families and friends a quirky, yet stylish, setting for a special holiday or reunion. It occupies a peaceful rural setting amongst the Yorkshire countryside, making it the ideal place to switch off, unwind and enjoy quality time with loved ones. However, as part of a complex, there are facilities on site, including a spa for those who want to pamper themselves. The charming village of Great Ayton is also a mile away with its shops and eateries. Whether you or not you are keen walkers or cyclists, there is a wealth of routes and trails on your doorstep, with something for all abilities. The property has lots of sociable areas for everyone to get together, but it also has enough space for guests to spread out and enjoy some quiet time. After a busy day exploring the local market towns or walking in the heather-clad hills, head back home, slip on your fluffy robes and sink into your private hot tub for a spot of star gazing.

This luxury lodge is a very special property; the natural textures and colours of wood are the stars of the show, but unique design features and attention to detail make this a truly wonderful place to stay. As you ascend the steps towards the front of the property, you will appreciate the quality of the exterior which hints at what’s inside. After leaving your muddy shoes under the porch at the front, you will enter into the open-plan living area, where contemporary design blends effortlessly with traditional furniture to create a homely ambience. A partial wall separates this room from the kitchen, which is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up some special meals. Completing the ground floor is a utility room and a shower room.

Upstairs, the exquisite bedrooms are arranged over two floors. On the first floor, there are two chairs on the landing that can open up to become beds for two extra guests. From here, you can access two delightful king-size bedrooms which both open on to a shared veranda, complete with hammock. A luxurious, contemporary shower room completes this floor. The second floor is well-suited to families, with twin beds in the landing area and a further double room, but there is restricted height in places due to the slanted ceilings.

A spacious veranda wraps around the property but opens up at one end to create a delightful terrace with plenty of seating for al fresco dining. It is also home to the hot tub where you can soak up the tranquillity and enjoy the views. Your four-legged friends are also catered for with their own, snug ‘Doghouse’. Free parking is available in the car park, subject to availability.

Iconic for its windswept beauty and purple heather blooms that flourish across the moorland during the summer months, the North York Moors are a walker’s paradise. This outdoor playground has much to offer in the way of activities, so you could soon be trekking along scenic trails, feeling the wind rushing through your hair as you navigate on foot or by bike. Visit Stokesley’s cobbled streets and peruse the shops and eateries 4 miles away, or drive 5 miles into Middlesbrough for some well-deserved retail therapy. Touring the Yorkshire coastline is a pleasant change of pace, the nearest seaside town is Saltburn-by-the-Sea 11 miles away, which boasts a sandy beach, a thriving arts scene and the last remaining pier in Yorkshire.

The perfect place to stay to visit places in North Yorkshire. The set up is ideal and having the Bistro on site is perfct too. if you wish to book the SPA - do this in advance as fully booked otherwise (which would be expected anywhere). Staff really hepful and will defintely be returning. There are som may places to visit locally but spending timeRead more at the Lodge is also something we enjoyed. Lots of outside space. Hide

Fantastic accommodation, they had thought of everything and the little touches were brilliant. It was like staying in a hotel but self catering! We had a lovely couple of days with the kids and dog and wouldn't have changed a thing. We look forward to going back.

We had a great week in a lovely location which felt very secluded thanks to hedging which screened off the car park. A fabulous hot tub. The staff were very friendly and we loved the bistro. The cabin was comfortable but we would have liked some drinks glasses made of real glass as well as the plastic ones provided for the hot tub. For us, the inteRead morerior had few too many signs which gave it more of a party venue feel rather than a family holiday home, but thats just personal taste! Hide
