“Fantastic place”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

We stayed here over new year with 2 children and were totally satisfied with everything about they place. Owners are friendly and helpful. We stayed in a studio with 2 kid nd had no problems, it was very well presented, clean and had everything we needed including a veranda overlooking h lawn. Surroundings were lovely and the kids loved the petting farm and play area. We loved everything about it so much so we have booked for this new year with the rest of the family

Stayed there over the Christmas period, though the family who ran this business were lovely, the lodge we had was a very small semi smelt musty and not very clean. To settle there I had to give it a good clean first, it was more like a bedsit and old fashioned.

Hello Linda,
We are very sorry that you felt the need to write a bad review for your stay here. We were surprised as we did ask everyone on their departure over xmas and new year if they had enjoyed their stay and without exception everyone said they had loved it. Many people have in fact rebooked, not just for next Christmas but for the spring and summer as well.

As we are a small family business we clean the lodges personally with the help of one cleaner, therefore we have an invested interest to make sure that the lodges are spotless. I am surprised that you felt you needed to re-clean as we are very thorough, and we do apologise. Certainly if you had brought the issues to us, we would have happily rectified any problem within minutes.

As for the comments that it was like a bedsit; whenever you see the word Studio in any holiday brochure it means the accommodation is open plan. We have photos of all the lodges and even a video on our website so our customers can see exactly what they are booking and if you didn't want a studio lodge we do have the option of a larger one bedroom lodges. Every September we do get inspected and this year we were again awarded 4 stars.

The lodges were in constant use in December with the heating on permanently, so they are neither damp nor musty.
Kind regards
Esmond

Had a nice shortbread, ideal base to go to Whitby for the day and plenty of walks. Took our 2 dogs with us and it was great, no problems at all. Would go again.

Rocklands lodge is an ideal place for families with younger children, with lots of things on site to keep them amused. We went as a couple and also enjoyed our stay.
We stayed in a studio lodge and found it a good size and well equipped. The lodges are located approx half a mile from the village up an unlit country lane. The village had a pub but did lack a local shop.
As four star accommodation I was slightly disappointed to find the lodge, in places, and on close inpection was in need of a clean. The shower cubicle and sealant had mould/mildew on it and there were stains inside the fridge that should have been cleaned. Overall though the cleanliness of the lodge appeared good.
I would consider returning in the future should I find myself in north yorks again.

We have had the pleasure of staying at Rocklands several times, and have always had a wonderful break there in our favourite Studio Lodge 1
The Hosts Mr and Mrs Watson, and daughter Andrea are so very kind and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them.
We had problems getting up the very snow covered lane to the lodges from the village, the last time we were lucky enough to visit, but it proved no problem for Mr Watson and his daughter who kindly drove down in their four wheel drive and effortlessly tow us up the hill!
We are well travelled and when staying in an hotel, we always prefer at least 4*, but Rocklands is in a class of its own. I can honestly say that there is only one thing that you cannot rely on ....and that is the weather! On our last visit we were lucky enough to have lots of snow, and the cabin was warm and cosy, and the scenery like a winter wonderland.
Hopefully. work allowing. we will be returning there in January to a place we consider to be our "Heaven on Earth"
