    Very clean with good facilities and loads of things to go out and view in the local area. Leaflets were very helpful. It’s a shame however that you are situated by a main road with very few places to walk dogs without travelling. Rules on dogs we felt were a little strict and could have allowed for a little more freedom, however we appreciate it was a working farm so obvious worry about dogs with the livestock. Maybe lead rules were needed rather than being so strict.

    2nd time we have been to this accommodation, it remains a nice base to see the South York Dales area from. Overall the accommodation was comfortable, but it is starting to look a little ‘tired’ in places, (tatty garden furniture, noisy plumbing) and the kitchen was sparsely equipped. Still, was good value for money generally and would recommend it.

    The lodge itself was very clean, comfortable and warm. Having paid an additional fee to bring our dog we were disappointed to find a strictly worded notice about pets, saying that all damage must be paid for AND threatening a specified fine if he was left in the lodge unattended! Ours is an old quiet dog who sleeps a lot and has never caused a problem in cottages before. We did make use of the owner's day care facility once at a reasonable charge which was fine, but it would have been nice if a day's stay could have been included in the additional fee perhaps. We were also disappointed that there were no walks from the lodge which is just off a main road, and the garden had open fencing. To be fair to the owners, an enclosed garden was not listed as a feature, but this is not a particularly pet friendly place! The only nearby pubs are impossible to walk to as there are no footpaths along the main road. The lodge is advertised as being on a working farm, and is close to a pig unit. The smell has been mentioned in other reviews, and was very invasive on some days, making it unpleasant to open windows or sit outside. Beyond the lodge the area is lovely with many places to visit.

    The lodge is fantastic. A wonderful level of detail, especially the kitchen. Andrea was extremely helpful and a super hostess. I loved the fact it is on a working farm and out in the lovely Yorkshire countryside (hence the local amenities score). I was in the Harrogate area for work and it felt like home when coming back in the evening. I was also checking it out for future visits with my dog and hope to be back.

    Swinsty Lodge is situated in a beautiful, rural location and served as a convenient base for exploring local towns and countryside. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owner was on hand and was very approachable to answer questions on the locality. Only 2 minor negatives, as we have a dog there was no public footpaths, for early morning walks, direct or adjacent to the property although plenty just a short drive away. Secondly, there is a lovely private grassy garden just down from the decking which is retained by post/rail fence. As there is livestock (sheep) close by I think some wire netting fixed to it would prevent any visitors dogs wandering out. Although ours is obedient we still felt we had to keep watching out. To sum up this provided us with a lovely holiday and would highly recommend a visit.

    The lodge was lovely, with most things that we needed. Very clean and very warm. Unfortunately, we had very strong winds during our stay and the trees surrounding the lodge kept us awake with the noise. We had our two dogs and found it difficult to walk them out as there was nowhere nearby. To get to the walking pathways, meant a walk along the very busy main road. Generally, in spite of the weather, we enjoyed the stay.

    The website pics don't do the lodge justice. A real home from home in a stunning setting. Fixtures and fittings of a high standard.
