Stayed here for four night break and found there were no problems. Other reviews had caused us to be a little concerned but please do not be put off, yes the key is just left in the door on arrival but why do people want to be welcomed with open arms! It's a self catering lodge and to be honest...

I have no idea where the other reviewers have been staying but i don't think it was here. This site was lovely, really lovely setting and really quiet and secluded. The cabin was very private and was really clean and spacious. The rooms were all of a decent size and were modern and well equipped. The hot tub was gorgeous...

After reading reviews and seeing some of the pictures, I can say that i wasn't looking forward to it. Our cabin was very private and even the hottub was all screened off. Very dissapointed that no one was there to great us and just a few words to say we are here if you need us. Not really up to...

I have seen negative comments on this site but can only assume those posting the reviews have been unlucky or were extremly picky. My visit to the site was delightful, quite and easy going. Others staying said the same. The location allows easy access to the coast (Scarborough and Whitby), York and the North Yorkshire Moors. I have stayed in...

We have just returned from Tantara Woodland Lodges and I must admit I was feeling very apprehensive about going after reading some of the reviews on here! However I was pleasantly surprised and we enjoyed our stay. The lodges are in a lovely setting and you have plenty of privacy, not overlooked etc. Whilst inside they are not the most...

There is no greeting pack or greeting on arrival, our cooker knobs were broken and we need to fix the babies dinner up, phonecalls not answered, knocked on all doors of farm house no answers. We made do as you do, but then found we had no travel cot as promised luckily we brought our own just in case. There...

I stayed at Tantara with my partner, my cousin and her partner. First impressions of the cabin was 'WOW' it was spacious and clean, just like home from home really. The positives include the cleanliness, the modern decor and the space. The negatives were having to try and work out how to control the temp on the hot tub, this...

Hello Lovely review, but I don't think it was at Rocklands you stayed. We do not have hot tubs here and we do not have a lodge called Tantara Kind regards

We normally holiday abroad but fancied a short break in Yorkshire. We picked Tantara due to the location. OK we also read the reviews and can agree with some points. We were told by Hoseasons to phone in advance (3 days) which we did and were told the key would be in the door, on the confirmation you are given...

I agree with many of the other negative stories and can verify some of the details because almost identical things happened to us. The accomodation was very poor - old fashioned and dowdy and when we arrived it was full of flies. Cutlery and crocker were in short supply and the state of cleanliness was poor. There was apparently no-one...

The first impression on the drive up to Tantara is a great one, clean and tidy and very well kept. There is no reception or office to speak of though and it was more luck than judgement that I met the owner who made a couple of phone calls to let me know what cabin I was booked into. (Hoseasons...
