Stopped here a couple of years ago at New year loved our lodge with all mod cons and private hot tub .found the site and surrounding area lovely the lodge was for four people and very comfortable wasn't keen on feeding the electricity meter with £1coins though

We had booked this lodge for half term week, and whilst we should be there right now eating a bacon sandwich on the veranda surrounded by nature and contemplating if its too early to get in the hot tub instead I am at home on my sofa surrounded by washing I really don't want to iron. This place has now...

We were really disappointed that our booking was cancelled by the owner 2 weeks before Christmas without any explanation but thanks to hoseasons we had a wonderful alternative which we think was a much better place according to the reviews. Electricity was included which I think it should be in holiday rentals of this high standard. So thanks owner we...

I have just returned from a 4 night break at Tanzy Cottage, after reading the reviews I was very worried but I have to say we have had a wonderful stay. We arrived to find the keys in the door and some money in the meter for electricity which I have to say was quite cost effective considering we had...

What a wonderful quiet relaxing place to stay. Have just spent the weekend in Tantara lodge with some friends and found the whole experience very relaxing. Although the log cabin was old and in need of a little TLC it certainly didn't spoil the weekend. The cabin and furnishings were adequate and clean, evenings were spent in the hotub relaxing...

My husband and I booked the Tantara lodge last minute. We had not read the reviews so went with an open mind. The location is fantastic, off the main road but close to Pickering and the surrounding attractions. The lodges are fairly close together but not overlooked by each other or the main farmhouse. I agree with the previous reviewers...

Upon our "EARLY" arrival we were greated by whom we presume was the owner of Tantara Woodland and his first joyful words of greeting to us was "Your Early". My wife myself and our two friends stayed in Tarragon Cottage which was a lovely snug cottage, the master bedroom was huge with plenty of wardrobe space. The second bedroom was...

My husband and I booked a week's stay at Tawny Owl Cottage. We were apprehensive to start with having read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. On my husband's suggestion we came armed with spare bed sheets, pillow cases, and bleach. Overall, the accommodation was pretty basic, very dark (several lights not working) and unclean (smelly fridge, mouldy kitchen bin, dusty...

On arrival we were disappointed as the outside of the cabin was dirty and very scruffy looking, the hotub was enclosed on all four sides with rickety peeling fencing. The lighting was poor and the hotub itself was swarming with slugs and didn't give off a very clean impression. The temperature was 40 which was far too hot to enjoy,...
