    Mr Savidge – 1 Jul 2021
    " While the lodge was lovely but in need of some repair works outside, this did not bother us at all. The internet at the lodge is also very poor and we had 3 days out of the 6 with no wi-fi and with other issues like curfews on the park we needed with our 2 teenage children to at least be able to watch movies on Netflix. Another issue we had was with the 10pm curfew outside ( not allowed to talk around outdoor table or go in the hot tub after 10pm ). This was due to the Holiday park actually being more of a residential park. With this we can understand the rule in place as people have to get up for work, but our choice of accommodation would of been different if this was advised before us arriving at the premises. Also they advise you can take your dog to lodge, but they do not inform you that you dog cannot be left at all ! Our dog is 15 years old and cannot walk for long periods or go to all the places our teenage children would like to go. We was also told by the site manager that we cannot even leave the dog for a few hours to go out for an evening meal. We have stayed away in many lodges before and have never had a curfew on any of our others stays. should detail all the parks rules on there listing, so the customer can decide if any of these rules will impact there holiday before booking. I also dont see how the park can say they are a holiday park when they have residents staying in every other lodge. At the very least they should place all the residents at one end and all the holiday guests at the other. "

    Mrs Johnson – 1 Apr 2021
    " Everything was extremely clean & furniture very comfortable. Short drive to many beautiful areas for walks, restaurants and cafes. Would highly recommend. "
    Mr Jewell – 1 Apr 2021
    " Clive made us welcome on arrival, with a fun coming out of lockdown BBQ. We enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor seating and comfy lounge to relax in the evening, with a drink or two. A perfect and peaceful base (loved seeing all the lambs in the nearby fields), for exploring the nearby delights of North Yorkshire including Richmond "
    Mr Storey – 1 Dec 2020
    "The only bad points we would say the mattresses could do with upgrading not very comfortable and the en-suite shower was very temperamental one min nice and warm then turned freezing for a couple of minutes. Other than that we had a lovely stay."
    Mrs Ternent – 1 Oct 2020
    " 2 There was a finger nail clipping next to the cooker on the work bench. 3 There was grease on the glass door inside the cooker and food crumbs on the ridge under the outside of the cooker door. 4 There was bits of dog biscuits in the rug in the living area. 5 I spilled some water on the carpet in the bedroom and when I wiped it up the cloth was covered in black dog hairs,these were not from my dog as I have a westie which was not in the bedroom as stated not too. 6 There was only luke warm water for the shower and bath 7 The area for walking the dog was up a steep grass embankment to get to the main walking area and with the grass being wet and I have a mobility problem and the dog being elderly we could not walk him.. "
    Mr Kidd – 1 Sep 2020
    "Thank you to the owners for such a lovely stay, you get the impression that they really care about their guests"
    - Miss Chambers, December 2020
    "The hot tub was fantastic too. The only downside was the comfort of the beds. The mattresses are very old, lumpy and hard so didn't give you the best nights sleep which is a shame. The area to walk your dog is also very difficult to access being up a very steep bank which, in the wet weather was muddy and slippy so not ideal. Having said that, we had a great time and - if they renewed the mattresses - would definitely stay again."
    - Mrs Powell, May 2021
    "Lovely people at site .wonderful location with fantastic wildlife."
    - Mr Widdison, July 2021
    "Nice plants would have given it all a different feel. It says its on the outskirts of Richmond, its 5 miles away which is misleading."
    - Barbara, September 2021
    "The hot tub was amazing,the lodge was spotless and the beds were comfy,we would love to return next year"
