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.

The village of Great Ayton is perched on the banks of the River Leven. Around the village are several interesting walks, with the property also providing an excellent base for the more adventurous walker wishing to explore the nearby North York Moors National Park, especially in the summer months when the moors turn purple with blooming heather. The village of Stokesley is a must-visit, with cobbled streets, boutique shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. Head to the Yorkshire heritage coastline to the fishing villages of Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and Saltburn with winding streets and where fish and chips are a must. Local iconic landmark Roseberry Topping is located within close proximity, a must see, with routes to the top so you can enjoy the spectacular views from the summit.

The lodge is approached via some steps leading up to the decked veranda area which leads you to the front door. Step through into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and you’ll instantly love the characterful decor. There is plenty of seating on which to relax and you can dine at the large table at mealtimes which is big enough for the whole family or a celebration meal. The lounge features a Smart TV with Sky, perfect for relaxing after a long day. Following into the kitchen, the first thing you notice is the large round mirrors and central island where you can perch at the breakfast bar and enjoy some breakfast before a day of exploring. Equipped with all your home comforts and everything you need to rustle up a hearty meal including an electric oven and gas hob, American-style fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The door to the right leads out to the fabulous side terrace complete with hot tub. Beside the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine. Completing the ground floor is a shower room with shower and WC. An additional door leads to the outside where your four-legged friend can enjoy their own space in the ‘Doghouse’. Head up the stairs to the first floor and the quirky decor continues. The large landing area has two chairs which can open to become two additional single beds for extra guests. There are two bedrooms on this floor, both have individually styled king-size beds and both lead out to a shared veranda where you can while away the hours in the hammock or simply sit and enjoy the view. There is also a luxurious shower room with shower and WC, with lovely cosmetic dispensers and robes. Head up to the second floor which is an excellent space for families -  on the landing area you will find twin beds and access to the double bedroom.

Outside, the decking sweeps around the lodge to the private hot tub with nearby outdoor seating -  a fantastic place to enjoy the summer nights with loved ones and dine alfresco. There is free parking available in the nearby public car park, subject to availability.

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
