“Perfection!”
Reviewed 26 September 2008

Apricot Lodge is a beautiful purpose-built guest accommodation. It is modern yet has character. The rooms have every facility, including bathrobes and bottled water.

Darran is a wonderful host. He produces consistently good breakfasts of local produce and is a mine of information on the locality. His speciality - the best teashops in Yorkshire, comes in very handy for days out.

It is to be highly recommended as is the lovely town of Pickering.

Our second visit to Apricot Lodge. Thanks to Sarah and Darran we spent another three fantastic nights enjoying their wonderful hospitality. Just nothing is too much trouble for them. Darran is just such a wonderful walking ( or should I say running , visit and you will see why. ) encyclopaedia of local and not so local information. This certainly wont be our last trip to see them.

My wife and I stayed for a week at this fantastic B & B. Our hosts Darran and Sarah could not have been more helpful as to where to eat, places of interest etc.
The accommodation was very comfortable and the rooms were decorated to a high standard. Tea and coffee in the bedroom were always replaced on a daily basis and there was extra milk kept in a fridge at reception for your use.
The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and cooked to perfection.
We have stayed in lots of B & B's all over the UK and we rate this as one of the best. We know it's 5 Diamonds but it should be Gold Award instead of Silver.
We will definitely return and if you go you won't regret it!

Apricot Lodge is set in a nice quiet location, just 5 minutes walk into the town centre. Darran and Sarah are the most hospitable hosts we have encountered. The accomodation is cozy, clean and very relaxing.The breakfasts are superb and we would recommend a stay here. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

We have just spent three nights at Apricot Lodge. We stayed in the Crocus and Country rooms. Really comfortably furnished, the beds were so comfortable.
Sarah and Darren are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast choice is amazing, really sets you up for the day. Perfect location for exploring the area. Sarah and Darren are incredibly knowledgable on things to do, places to go and places to eat! Will definitely be coming back.
