St Hilda's Lodge description

Holiday home
This lovely, quality log cabin is located on a working livestock farm in the village of Hinderwell. Just seven miles north of Whitby, the property has been stylishly furnished and decorated to a very high standard. With an open plan living area, comfortable and spacious bedrooms, a fantastic decking area that offers countryside views and a hot tub, the property has everything a group of up to four people might need. On the farm, guests can collect their own eggs for breakfast, admire the llamas or book a pony ride. With the village of Hinderwell close by, there are lots of local amenities within easy reach.

With shops and pubs close to the picturesque fishing towns of Staithes and Runswick Bay, Hinderwell is a small but bustling rural village. Just seven miles from the charming harbour town of Whitby, Hinderwell is ideally located for exploring the surrounding countryside, ranging from the dramatic cliffs and smugglers' coves of the coastline to the deep, secluded dales of the North York Moors National Park. This is a wonderful area for walking, cycling, gliding, riding and fishing, and all of these activities are well catered for throughout the area. With so much on offer, this lovely little village makes a great location no matter what the time of year.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

Had a warm welcome from the owners - we stayed with them two years previously. Our daughter loved the animals on the farm and the very fresh eggs! The hot tub is a real treat at the end of a long day walking or on the beach. Having two bathrooms is great as it really cuts down getting ready time.

The log cabin was perfect for a relaxing weekend break with friends. The hot tub was perfect at the end of the day! Fresh eggs from the chickens on Saturday morning for breakfast - Yummy!

A very nice and comfortable Lodge with very comfy super king size bed and excellent hot tub facilities. The owner could not be more helpful, we were made very welcome. It is 7 miles or so from Whitby, so really a great location for exploring, nice walks, very friendly local pub and superb food. Overall, I would recommend St.Hilda's Lodge to anyone, and the guest book speaks for itself - excellent feedback.

The owner was extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him. We collected fresh eggs from the hens on the farm every morning for breakfast. The lodge is in a great location for the surrounding places of interest. The neighbours were also very friendly.

Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. I visited with my mother, friend and 6 dogs, we stayed in the 2 bedroom cabin which was fantastic! The farm was lovely to look around and the staff very friendly and chatty. Lots of walks and beautiful beaches to visit, located In a very quiet and beautiful area.

Great place to stay. Comfortable and cosy. High specification fittings. Friendly owners. Some lovely views on a clear day. Hot tub is a must, and is not overlooked. Great location for cliff top walks to Staithes, and Runswick Bay, and a 15 minute drive to Whitby. Would recommend to a friend. If stopping here we would also recommend the Brown Cow Inn for a great, personal service, good beer and excellent pub food!
Mrs Geraughty

We loved the whole holiday from start to finish! The accommodation was perfect for our family and a great base to explore from. The owners were kind and helpful and the hot tub a must after long days.

We loved the setting of the small village. The owners and locals were very friendly. The kids loved all the farm animals and especially collecting the fresh eggs every day. We are hoping to return soon.

Mr Hall

The animals (pigs, hens, ducks, goats, sheep, peacocks, llamas and geese) delighted my daughter and collecting eggs from the hens every day was great fun. The owners were very welcoming and friendly.
Mrs Curran
June 2013
The hot tub and the decking with barbeque meant we didn't have to travel far to enjoy the sunshine. Being close to a working farm was perfect for our one year old who loved collecting the eggs every day and talking to all of the animals! The owners were very helpful and attentive, keen to make sure that everything was OK but without pestering us on our holiday - they were great!
Ms Bargate

The location of the property was excellent, not too far from Whitby and had some lovely villages nearby. I could not fault the cabin in anyway and it had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The owner was very helpful. Overall a lovely cabin and would not hesitate to book again. Being able to collect our own fresh eggs was an added bonus.

The location is superb with clifftop walks 5 minutes away and village amenities 5 minutes away. This is a great base from which to explore the Yorkshire coast and very comfortable to return to. The owner and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the free-range eggs (free in price too) was a nice touch.
Mr Beazley

The Lodge was excellent and the owners couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. We'd have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family.
Mrs Stuart

September 2016
very disappointed with this lodge, the photos on web site or not a good representation of the lodge, the suite. table and chairs and stools are not the same as photos the whole place is in need of a good clean and makeover there was door handles missing light bulbs not working the bbq was filthy and the area around the hot tub is drab and in need of a good tidy up. There was electric cables along the front of lodge that were tied to nails with string and a cable lying on ground from the lodge to the next caravan
Mr Parkin

We know the area well, the proprietor was very helpful and friendly. The lodge is large and spacious and designed to a high specification. The setting is quiet and just what we like.
Mr Mrs Ramsay

July 2016
The lodge itself is a lovely building but it needs a complete deep clean. It is tired and shabby. There are many light bulbs not working, the chandelier in the main bedroom is absolutely filthy any one with asthma beware I have never seen so much dust. The cupboards are missing handles, doors, broken shelves and the ensuing shower is something else. The are no hooks to hange clothes or towels, the the toilet roll holders fall off the wall but the worst was the shower head was partially clogged with limescale, the pipe leading to the shower head was covered in dust and the metal shampoo /soap holder is absolutely filtly with black rust. It really is horrible and because of this I opted to have baths. The blind in the bathroom does not pull down and if you try the window frame is loose. The plug does not fit and to stop the water running away I had to keep my foot on it, but then to empty I had to lever it out with a spoon. The floors in both shower and bathroom were dirty. The general floor in the lodge needed to be polished as the vanish had worn off. There is a purple rug as you enter the cabin and again this was muddy. I know it is meant to be a working farm but at least start with a clean rug. The high bar stool is broken but this is not apparent until you go to sit on it. We could not get any internet although it is offered, when logging on the message shows as no signal. There was not a welcome pack, we had not idea where doctors, buses, take aways etc were and we couldn't google them because no internet! I feel for the amount we paid and at the beginning of season the standard of the lodge is well below par. It is a shame because it is in a beautiful area but even that cannot make up for the condition if the place. I hate writing bad reviews but sometimes needs must

We really enjoyed the atmosphere of being on the farm with the animals and the friendliness of our hosts, also the free range eggs were a great idea. We had fresh eggs for breakfast everyday.
Mrs Holt
April 2010
The Lodge and its setting was lovely. A great place for children (collecting eggs for breakfast).
June 2014
We had a lovely week here with our daughter and son-in-law. Dave, the owner, couldn't do enough for us, he's such a good natured man. We collected fresh eggs from the hens every morning for breakfast, a real treat. The neighbours were very friendly and the local pub and bistro were also great.

We arrived after a 6 hour journey only to find that the owner was not expecting us! The accommodation was dirty, and just as the previous tenants had left it. Fresh bed linen and towels were provided but there was no attempt to clean the lodge at all. The second bedroom was very poor, the curtains did not cover the whole of the window so we were woken early by daylight. We lived out of a suitcase for the entire week as there was not a wardrobe in the small bedroom. Luckily we had taken some cleaning materials with us as none were provided. In the house bathroom there was no blind at the window, basic things like loo brushes were not supplied. We had to wash crockery and glasses before we could even use them. Outside there was a glass table which was filthy and the chairs did not fare much better. The barbeque was unusable as it was rusty and unhygienic. Overall, don't bother. Totally over-rated and expensive.

We arrived when it raining heavily, we thought that would be a taste of things to come but we were pleasantly surprised, we had really good weather. The farm was great and Dave the owner was so helpful and friendly. We were so comfortable in the lodge, a few things are needed that would make it even better, the foliage around the lodge needs to be cut back on the left hand side to let in some light and maybe the area where the hot tub is could be made more inviting. There is no wardrobe in the twin bedroom so is not really adequate for adults but all the beds were so comfortable we did not want to get up in the morning, also the bathrooms need towel rails and toilet roll holders, these are just small things that did nothing to spoil our holiday we would do it all again, some lovely animals with plenty of freedom and collecting our own eggs was the highlight. We were dissappointed that after reading the rules for the hot tub we were not allowed to use it as between the four of us we had too many of the illnesses, ( heart conditions, diabetics and high blood pressure, well we are all older people.) Every where we went people were so friendly and we found ourselves chatting to strangers like we were old friends. Thank you Yorkshire for making us so welcome. If you want comfort and cleanliness you cannot go wrong with this Holiday Lodge.
January 2014
As we arrived it wasnt what we were expecting but we quickly forgot about that, the owner couldnt do enough for you and the property was decorated to such high standards where nothing was too much trouble. The surrounding areas were fantastic and would definitely advise on staying in this property.

Great value for money, the farm owners were lovely & going out to collect your eggs each day was such a great novelty. Master bedroom has a Queen size bed - Amazing. Would recommend anyone staying here!
October 2012
The lodge was very nice, clean and a very good size. We had a fab holiday with our family. The local pub food was good. The owner was very helpful. Our granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed visiting the animals and collecting eggs and didn't want to go home. The area is fabulous to see especially Runswick Bay. The cliff top walks were very scenic. The shopping in Whitby is excellent. We would love to live here.
January 2011
Very relaxing and the very best Lodge that I have stayed in, it is situated close to the very best that Yorkshire offers,
January 2011
The lodge was top class accomadation in the Grounds of a working farm.The owner and his family were extremely helpfaul and the little touches like free freshly laid eggs every morning just added to the experience. would absolutely recomend this property to friens , family and strangers alike.
September 2010
fantastic log cabin in a great location,just a short trip to runswick bay,and surrounding north yorkshire tourist attractions
November 2010
Easy on-line booking service. the property itself was beautiful. all mod cons and furnished to an extremely high standard.on a working farm, which wasn't noisy and all the eggs we could eat. a great base for exploring Yorkshire with a couple of pubs and a bistro within walking distance. I'd recommend it to anyone and the only downside was that we couldn't stay longer. will definitely be booking again!!
November 2010
We had a lovely week at St Hildas Lodge which is on a small quiet site of static caravans. The owners are very friendly & were keen to make our stay as pleasant as possible. To collect eggs for breakfast was an added bonus. The cabin is very modern & home from home, though a wardrobe in the twin bedroom would help as anyone in there has to share wardrobe space in the master bedroom. Large shower in en suite & plenty of hot water. Central for touring area. Thanks to Dave, Linda & Terry for a wonderful week & hope to be back soon.
