This lovely cottage was ideally situated to visit both rural and coastal locations. The cottage itself was idyllic and very comfortable.

We spent a fantastic few days at Gales Lodge, over New Year. The lodge was absolutely beautiful, and felt much more spacious than the images give credit for! The welcome basket was lovely, and it felt like the owners had thought of everything. It was brilliant having walks straight from the door - our little dachshund thoroughly enjoyed the walk toRead more Kirkybymoorside.We would definitely stay again and certainly recommend. Hide

We had an amazingly relaxing time at Gales Lodge ....just what we needed. The lodge is immaculate and furnished to a very high standard. Everything you need is there (except maybe a fire poker!)We'd read in a review that the mattress was a little firm ...we would agree, but we'd taken a quilted throw with us which was enough for our blanket so usedRead more the quilt as a mattress topper ...worked perfectly! The wood burner was gorgeous! The welcome pack was lovely...the most delicious ginger biscuits ever tasted! So many pretty villages with good pub food too! Highly recommended! Hide

A tranquil retreat on the edge of the N Yorks moors. A really good place to recharge the batteries.

Booking Gales Lodge was a last minute thing, after our initial plans had to be shelved, but I can say, hand on heart, that this was no compromise. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well appointed and very well equipped. It was the little things, and the attention to detail that made it such a great place to be. The welcome basket had everything youRead more could want, and even though walking to places was not really recommended, due to there being no footpaths near the cottage, it was no hardship to jump in the car and drive. Our hosts were friendly, and nothing was any trouble. I would recommend Gales Lodge without hesitation, and will be booking again in the future. Thank you! Hide

These cottages are a great central base from where to day trip from. Well presented, quiet and recommended. Pub a five minute walk away, town 2 miles away, and a very good short walk to Hutton-le-Hole. Helmsley, Pickering (steam train to Whitby) and Castle Howard are all close and the coast not to far a drive.
