This large detached Grade II listed property is located in Snainton near Scarborough and can sleep seventeen people in eight bedrooms.

The Lodge is a spacious detached Grade II listed property in the North Yorkshire village of Snainton, just nine miles from Scarborough. Spread over three floors, the property has eight bedrooms (five super king-size doubles and three twins), one with a day bed, as well as four family bathrooms. On the ground floor is a kitchen, a dining room and two sitting rooms, one with a woodburning stove. Outside is off road parking, a lawned garden with outdoor furniture and a sumptuous hot tub. Just a short drive to the coast, and close to the North York Moors National Park, The Lodge is a superb family holiday home for a memorable holiday in North Yorkshire.


Family gathering perfection.
We 15 people stayed from a Friday to Monday and what a wonderful place! We are a spread out family who don?t meet up too often so this made a perfect weekend. The house is very grand and the rooms are of large proportions, decorated well, comfortable and warm. We rattled round inside with plenty of space. We loved the kitchen which was large, square and well equipped and improved only by the food we consumed. Outside, the garden to the rear was extensive and beautifully laid out. Parking was good for 5 cars and a little constrained for our 6, but this was no real problem. There were plenty of fruit trees and a hot tub which was put to good use. The location is perfect for the coast, Scarborough, Filey etc. It?s also easy access to York, for the Minster, the Railway Museum or just wandering round the city. The North York?s Moors are to the north as is the Steam Railway running from Pickering to Grosmont. Finally, all that is needed is to say The Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. We all loved it!

Great family holiday destination
We wanted a big property that would allow loads of family, including kids from 3 to 11, and a couple of well-behaved dogs. The Lodge was just what the doctor ordered. The property is very easy to find, especially when the owner texts you a confirmation and some information which tells how the sat navy will send you a short distance away from the property! The keys were exactly where we told they would be. First impressions? Wow, how big the place is; huge kitchen with a central island which seats about eight, massive fridge and massive amounts of good quality crockery and cookware. Two big lounges for relaxing in, a separate dining room and an instant access to wi-fi, essential for electronic savvy kids and adults. Upstairs, huge and clean bathroom, airy and spacious bedrooms with good linen. The upper floors are quieter the further up and away from the main road you get. First bedroom on the landing is light and bright, but noisy due to passing traffic, which doesn't quieten until ate evening and begins before six, as it's the main road into York. The garden is huge! Most of it is very well maintained and was used by the kids for cricket and the like. The more wild area, which was described accurately in the house file, was more unkempt, but proved popular as an adventure playground. The hot tub was very clean, spacious and we had trouble keeping both kids and adults out of it. It adds another dimension to the property and was most welcome. I only have a couple of minor niggles. The kitchen would benefit from a couple of items being added to the inventory. Good knives benefit from being kept sharp, but I couldn't find a steel or other sharpener. I had to resort to an age-old method of using the edge of a plant pot, until a relative arrived with a steel later in the week. Similarly there was no whisk, which makes mixing eggs for twelve-person scrambled eggs an issue On the upper floors most of the windows were closed and covered by a sheet of Perspex, this meant they could not be opened. Given the warm weather this prevented us creating a flow of air through the rooms, making them somewhat stuffy. All in all these were minor concerns. We loved the location, close to tourist areas in North Yorkshire, and the ease of getting around. The property meant we spent loads of time in the kitchen, the soul of this house, and a great family holiday ensued. Would we book again, without a doubt

We stayed in this house as a group of 17 and it was amazing. We didn't want to go home. The house was lovely and everyone was catered for, it has a lovely garden and the hot tub was a bonus! It was also very central for all the attractions we visited.

The property was beautiful and situation to local area was excellent. Communication with owner was brilliant and we were made very welcome in the property.

Wonderful large house
We stayed here with 8 adults and 7 children ranging in age from 5 months to 9 years. Having stayed in snainton before, we knew the location was perfect to visit local tourist spots such as Scarborough, Pickering, Dolby forest and Whitby. The property is on a main road but we were not disturbed in any way by the traffic noise. The garden and large kitchen are at back of house so are very peaceful. The hot tub was a big hit and made the stay extra special. The beds and bedding were so comfy and luxurious in all of the bedrooms and the property had much character. Communications that we had with owner were excellent and we were made to feel very welcome in the home. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to any large groups of friends or family, we would not hesitate to return.
