Relax with a special break with friends and family in this wooden lodge located in a peaceful oasis within easy reach of all local attractions and the rugged Yorkshire coastline.

Situated on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park, this beautiful Scandinavian-style lodge offers families and friends a unique property for a special holiday or reunion. Occupying a tranquil setting amongst the Yorkshire countryside, it’s the perfect place to escape your hectic pace of life 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 treat themselves and indulge in a day of complete relaxation. Great Ayton, a delightful, bustling village, is also a mile away with a range of shops and eateries. For adventurous types, whether you prefer walking or cycling, there is a wealth of routes and trails on your doorstep with something for all abilities. The property is a great size with plenty of sociable areas for everyone to come together, but it also has enough space for guests to spread out and enjoy some time alone or with a good book. After a busy day discovering the treasures on offer in the local market towns or hiking over the heather-clad hills, head back home, slip into your fluffy robes and sink into your private hot tub for a spot of star gazing.

 

When it comes to the interior, wood takes centre stage in this exquisite lodge, but the juxtaposition of rustic charm and contemporary design creates a welcoming home where you will find it easy to relax.

 

As you step up on to the covered porch area, discard your muddy shoes and step inside. On your right, you will find a large lounge/diner where high vaulted ceilings add to the sense of space and comfy seating ensures everyone has somewhere to snuggle down of an evening. It’s up to you whether you choose to watch TV or play board games. The dining area is also spacious and has ample seating for everyone to enjoy a meal together. Adjacent to the dining area is a compact, but well-equipped, kitchen with all the mod-cons you’ll need to cook up a tasty meal.

 

Immediately on your left as you enter the property is a contemporary shower room, whilst straight ahead is the first of the bedrooms which is a well-presented, spacious king-size bedroom. Two further bedrooms can be found off the dining room. There is a beautiful king-size room with a Smart TV and finally an immaculate twin room. Completing the property is a good-sized family bathroom with contemporary tiling and inspirational wall decals.

 

Outside, there is decking to the front and side of the property which creates an undercover seating area complete with stylish chairs and dining furniture – just perfect for dining alfresco in changeable British weather. There is also a hot tub (not undercover), allowing you to admire the stars on a clear evening as you sink beneath the bubbles. Free parking is available in the car park, subject to availability.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The attractive village of Great Ayton (1 mile) has a wonderful village vibe. With a selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and tearooms, you could eat out every night if you wanted to. As home to a young Captain Cook, there is also the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum which allows you to explore his early life in the surrounding area. If you love to walk, from Great Ayton you can walk up to Roseberry Topping (2.5 miles); a prominent hill with lots of walking trails that lead up to the distinctive summit and cliffs.

The gorgeous market town of Stokesley (4 miles) is also worth a visit. It’s attractive mix of Victorian and Georgian architecture and cobbled streets is home to independent shops, tea rooms and pubs. It also holds an Agricultural Show every September which shows off the best the area has to offer with lots of things to see and do.

The vibrant little village of Osmotherley (14.5 miles) is well-known as a starting point for walkers and cyclists. This gorgeous little place is real picture-postcard stuff. It also offers excellent facilities including a cafe, village stores and a fish and chip shop. If you're a bit of a foodie, this part of Yorkshire is packed with fantastic gastropubs, restaurants and delis. Situated within the western reaches of the North York Moors, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1987, Osmotherley has close proximity to lush pastures and woodlands. The western Moors play host to grand country houses, atmospheric ruins and handsome market town and the views from here are simply stunning, and there are walks and cycle routes in every direction. You are very close to the famous Cleveland Way as well as many more well-known and picturesque moorland walks, some of which lead all the way to the sea.

This property’s position at the northern end of the North York Moors means the coast is easily accessible from here. To breathe in the fresh, sea air, head to seaside town Saltburn-by-the-Sea (11 miles) with its pier, cliff tramway, golden sand and clean surf.

In a wonderful location close to some excellent walks and attractions, the lodges are beautifully kept and spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was provided, the lodges were private but with all the convenience of having the bistro and facilities on site.

This is an excellent lodge in an excellent location. We arrived Monday and found so many things to do in the area. My 12 year daughter and her two friends said it was one of their best holidays.

The cabin was incredible. Beautifully decorated, cosy, stylish and attention to detail was second to none. The hosts have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. The hot tub was used in all weathers and just added to the fun.

Property situated on small development with lovely bar/restaurant. In need of TLC as several easily remedied issues ie no batteries in decorative clocks, toilet seat broken, hot tub lid broken and kept blowing open but on a positive was very clean and maintained temperature very well. Not as spotlessly clean as other properties in this price range Read more. Very private within easy access of lovely local attractions Good sized grass area safe for children to play. Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
