“Certainly one of our best choices!”
Reviewed February 14, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The lodge was really comfortable and warm even though we had snow outside, it never felt chilly, and was just as described. The views were stunning. We took our dog, and we really enjoyed the walks around the farmland and beyond. We were in an ideal location, not far from the beach at Saltburn by the sea, and less than 1 hour from Whitby, which was a really nice place to visit, and some really quaint villages to look around Lots of lovely pubs nearby for great meals, and of course complete peace and quiet.

“A wooden form of heaven!”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Cannot fault this place, utter beauty all around you.
Rita is happy to help your every need, and will go out of her way to ensure your stay is relaxing and enjoyable. Everything has been thought of, even little things such as binoculars in your lodge so you can see the vast amounts of wildlife and beauty that surrounds you. The view is amazing.
The lodge is high quality, and provides everything you need, just take you and your clothes.
Location is ideal for dog walkers, hikers, children, shoppers, nightlife, everything! We will definitely be back!!

The family enjoyed the fishing too..

Perfect, we'll be booking again Im sure!

“Spacious lodge in a friendly farm location”

We stayed in the 'Curlew' lodge, one of the 4 lodges available to rent at Blackthorne gate. The lodge is spacious with a large open plan living/dining/kitchen/reception area, en-suite double bedroon, a second bedroom with bunk-beds, a bathroom and sauna. There is also a drying room which is useful for storing shoes and any wet clothes. For those that need it there is a ramp up to the front door for ease of access.
The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and as part of the package there are a small stock of essential supplies for your use in the lodge (tea, coffee, milk, etc)
The lodges are set in a working farm with views of Roseberry Topping from the living room window, and we spent many an afternoon walking about the farm, which our 2 year old daughter loved!
We will be returning to Blackthorne Gate as there is so much more to explore in the area and have already recommended it to friends for their future breaks.
