As for everyone, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant a far from normal year at Yorkshire Luxury Lodges but guests were able to enjoy the fresh air and tranquility of our beautiful area through the summer and early autumn. Here is what just a few of them had to say on, TripAdvisor/HolidayLettings, HomeAway and direct to our website.



Victory Retreat Lodge 

Abby – 

10 out of 10

It was a lovely experience from start to finish. I had a few questions before we went in regards to COVID and these were answered promptly and efficiently. The lodge itself was lovely, looked very clean and had everything that you may need! The lodge itself has the hot tub at the back facing a woodline, which is great as its away from the camps road. Check in and check out was easy we were contacted via message before we arrived to let them know our expected time of arrival. Once we arrived someone was there to greet us and take us to the lodge and show us how the hot tub worked. Then the owner popped in the next day to make sure everything was OK, this was a nice touch and made us feel if we had any problems we could approach them without a problem. Check out was good and hassle free. Overall, would stay here again and definitely recommend to family and friends.


Victory Greenland Lodge 

Chelsea – 

Lovely weekend and I will definitely return

Very spacious lodge, fantastic value for the money. I would have expected to pay much more for this lodge. Lots of space between lodges. We had the hot tub facing the bushes at the back which I would recommend for privacy.


Heron Lodge 

Kyle – HolidayLettings 

Outstanding Trip

What an amazing stay at the Heron Lodge. Four of us went for a birthday weekend. We could not fault the lodge one bit and also the outstanding service we received by (Janine). She did an amazing job of the lodge for the birthday surprise and the place was immaculate. We definitely will be visiting here again and would recommend to anyone.

The site was lovely and great area not far from Malton town centre.  


Ryedale Lodge 

Katy - HolidayLettings


 We loved the lodge. Everything was clean and nice and secluded. Hot tub was great and lovely area. Nice and close to Flamingo Land and Eden camp so a great family trip.


Victory Retreat Lodge 

Carlo – 

Stunning lodge, excellent service from Helena and amazing location. Felt like a home from home!

Location central to local Yorkshire tourist attractions particularly great for those with kids. Hot tub and quality of lodge was amazing, great way to relax and unwind in the peace and quiet after a day out with the family. I would highly recommend the lodge, can’t fault the service or the quality of the lodge. Any questions answered really quickly and made to feel welcome.


Victory Greenland Lodge

Ben – HomeAway

Amazing time away

Fantastic facilities and location. Very peaceful accommodation, clean and spacious. Hot tub and tv were used a lot and good kitchen cooking space. The surrounding towns were great. 'Very close' to Flamingo Land (10 mins drive). So it's great for that, Malton has some brilliant tea rooms and cafes as does Pickering. Each room has its own character and style. Helena (on-site contact) was very helpful.

Heron Lodge

Leanne –

Ten out of Ten

The lodge was lovely and spacious, really clean and adhering to the Covid guidelines . The hot tub was amazing and really made our stay special as did the many thoughtful touch’s like ice for our cocktails , a dog bed and mat for under her bowls , different varieties of coffee and hot choc etc . Malton is such a beautiful town and with York only being 30 mins away and Whitby and Scarborough an hour or so, it really is a great little find, will definitely stay here again!


Ryedale Lodge

Penny – Our website

Thank you!

Just thought I would let you know I had a fantastic time away in your lodge, it was very peaceful and just what I needed. Throughout booking and leaving I have had such great communication.  I will definitely be booking again.


Heron Lodge 

Helen – 

Fab location, had everything we needed and close to where we wanted to be.

Location was great, we visited flamingo land, approx 10mins in the car and also Dalby Forest, approx 20 mins in the car. Malton was also on the doorstep. The hot tub was a great selling point and having sheets and towels provided was fab


Ryedale Lodge 

Shannon – 

Beautiful place, very relaxed if wanted to go on adventures the drive wasn't far to locations.

We liked the privacy of the lodge and we loved how spacious and cosy it was. Even on some days when the weather wasn't great we stayed in and watched Netflix all day and drank our complementary hot chocolates in front of the beautiful electric fire. We loved how warm and powerful the jets on the hot tub was we were in it for hours at a time! Also really appreciated Helena putting balloons and banners up for us as it was my partners birthday and he really appreciate it as it was a surprise. Gorgeous surroundings and perfect location if you want to visit Castle Howard very picturesque towns and villages. Supermarkets & pubs/ restaurants not that far of a drive which is always a bonus!

“Beautiful” (The Ryedale)

A beautiful lodge in perfect location. It had everything we needed and was lovely and warm. Our favourite part of the break was the hot tub, looking up at the stars at the end of the day was a great way to wind down. Would like to return in the future.

 Kim. 24-12-2019

Lovely weekend

I booked the Victory Greenland for me and a few friends for a relaxing weekend away. We were not disappointed.

Even better than it looks in photos and has all the amenities you could need. The village nearby is a lovely place, there's places for food and nice village pubs. Would highly recommend.

 Danielle. 9-12-2019


I booked with my wife and two friends with the intention of relaxing. This is exactly what we got, a beautiful lodge in beautiful settings.

Helena was very nice and helpful. 100% recommend this place if you want to unwind from your busy working life.

We will be returning again soon

Douglas. 17-11-2019

Stunning Lodge

We spent two nights at the Ryedale Lodge and it was perfect. It's in a great location and took us tens minutes to Castle Howard and Flamingo Land. The hot tub was a nice added touch and the accommodation was clean and comfortable.

We could have happily stayed for a couple of weeks.

 Emma. 8-4-2019

“Fantastic lodge”

The lodge was amazing I could not fault it. Its in a great location central to many attractions. I would recommend it to anyone.

 Tracey. 20-1-2019


Lovely night away

I booked the lodge for myself, my husband and our 6 month old little boy as we visited York the Christmas markets. The lodge was lovely, well decorated and clean. The hot tub was also great - a nice treat. The lodge also had a Christmas tree next to the fireplace, which I thought was a really nice touch and made our trip extra festive.

 Charlotte. 7-12-2018


On arrival we met the owners of lodge who gave us the keys and directed us to our lodge.

The lodge was immaculately clean and had tea,coffee etc...all kitchen equipment you need.

The area was tidy and well looked after. The hot tub was clean and we all enjoyed every moment of it.

Claire. 20-11-2018


Unbelievable... brilliant... spotless! Couldn’t ask for anything more from our lodge, truly memorable and would definitely return.

Enough said.

‘Mr’. 2-9-2018


We came over from Spain for a mate's wedding and this was perfect for the night before and after. Much bigger than we'd thought it would be, classy decor, comfy beds and everything you need included. The owner was great, helping out with booking taxis and other stuff. We'd give it ten stars if we could!

Peter. 31-8-2018


Lovely weekend away

The lodge is spacious and well appointed with very attractive decor and furnishings (bigger and better than our home!). It is situated in a peaceful park with lots of outdoor space. The view from the decking is lovely and the hot tub is a real bonus. The staff gave us a warm welcome and were helpful and friendly. There's lots to do in the area and the lodge is less than ten minutes drive from Flamingo Land.

Have never stayed in a lodge before but we'll definitely be going back.
