    We had a lovely break at Halloween with the grandkids, the lodge was cosy, spacious and safe for the kids to play outside.

    Took4 days to get shower working only enough cultlery for one meal Agent said that the owners said the shower often trips the electric! This is not right and a safety issue We think the owner is becoming quite complacent!

    Nice lodge - very relaxing and quiet - ideal with Dog although would be tricky in bad weather with carpets! We liked not having Wi-fi but no phone signal was tricky at times. Some equipment needs upgrading eg. Kids duvet covers were very old and stained (though clean). Lovely location 😀👍

    Oak Lodge is a nice, spacious place on a beautiful location. Enough room to sit, eat en cook, and a good kingsize bed. From the cabin you look at squirrels and rabbits and an occasional visit from the chickens from the neighbors. The little town of Masham is nearby, and so are plenty of beautiful rides and walks in the neighborhood. The only thing that could be better are the mattresses on the bunkbed. For the rest I would recommend the place

    The lodge itself was wonderful. However, there was an incident on Thursday which worried both my partner and I as well as the other couple on the site. They had gone out for the day but we had stayed in as my partner is disabled and wasn't well that day. I went to the shop and left my partner on her own. When I came back, she informed me that a strange man had been looking in our windows and looking straight at her. This frightened her as - not only was she alone - but we had no phone signal there. An hour later, this same man returned and did the same thing at the other couples lodge before leaving without saying a word. I informed the other couple upon their return and - as they were worried too - they rang the owner. He said it was him! Apparently, this is what he does when he rents out his lodges. He looks through the windows to see all is ok. So......if you don't mind a strange man looking through your windows at all your personal belongings whilst you are out then this holiday is for you!!!

    Although warm and comfortable, bed was a low for an elderly person. The lodge looked a little tired and would benefit from an refresh .Found it strange to have a pink carpet in living area, especially as the lodge was dog friendly.

    A lovely traditional wooden lodge, in a quiet setting, shared with 3 other lodges. The grounds are large and enclosed, apart from the main gate where you enter - which I imagine could be shut for more security, (we couldn’t do so due to deep snow) BUT, we would only consider staying here again if the bed was changed as it was far too low and uncomfortable. My husband and I are both in our mid fifties (and tall) so found it a real struggle, such a shame as we really enjoyed it otherwise. It was well equipped, but DOESNT SUPPLY TOWELS, which we consider an essential basic. It was also lovely and warm, and we didn’t mind having no WiFi as our phone signals were ok for texting. We took our two dogs and they had a great time in the snow. We took plenty of mats and covers so we could put them on the floor (which has a dusky pink carpet), and large throws to protect the sofas (as we knew they would go on them). There are lots of lanes around for walks in the area, and we loved having dog friendly pubs around. The Bay Horse in Masham, in particular, was a fabulous place - lovely friendly, and welcoming, plus the food was gorgeous - definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, due to the bad conditions with the snow, we didn’t get to explore as much as we would’ve liked, but it’s a lovely area with lots of nice little villages to see. Well worth a visit.

    On first impressions the lodge seemed to be good but we did encounter a couple of problems. On our first morning staying in the lodge we were woken at 7am by workmen working on the lodge behind ours. Even though we were out for most of the day they didn't finish until around 5pm. Not great when you've had a long journey the previous day and you're hoping to enjoy a lie in!! The other issue we had was that the housekeeping wasn't as good as you would expect. The lodge overall was generally clean but we found very thick, grey dust behind the beds and around the bunks. On leaving the property we actually hoovered behind the double bed. Generally the location was ok but do be prepared to drive to a lot of places to visit.

    Kitchen well equipped but place felt grubby. Sofa and bed uncomfortable. No towels provided which is unusual these days. Shower extremely underpowered... pretty location but very far away from civilisation.

    Nice and warm when we arrived for Christmas and had everything we needed. The Oven did not work on the day we arrived, contacted the owner the following morning Christmas eve(no mobile signal in the immediate area)and the Oven was replaced with new within 90 minutes - very impressed. Just needs a new Sofa as very uncomfortable. Would highly recommend and would stay again.
