Myself, my Wife and our 2 year old daughter have just returned from a weeks stay in one of Dave and Christine's two Lodges. We needed a relaxing base within a quick travelling distance of Middlesbrough whilst also being convenient for Redcar, Saltburn , Whitby and Scarborough for family days out. We all love nature and wildlife, and from the very first time we drove up the drive, we new we wouldn't be disappointed ! Wild Partridges, Pheasants, Rabbits and Hares were immediately spotted, and as we entered the site itself, we were greeted by very friendly Chickens, Geese, Ducks and two beautiful ponies, along with the most hilarious and entertaining Indian Runner Ducks. Within minutes of meeting Dave and Christine, we new that we would hit it off with them straight away. We discovered that most of the animals and birds had been previously rescued by Dave and Christine (a subject close to our hearts), and Grewgrass could not be a more fantastic place for them to have ended up at ! The Lodge itself was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and welcoming. Eggs, milk, bread and biscuits were provided in the lodge on arrival, along with loads of towels and extra bedding etc. For people who want peace and quiet in an idyllic and beautiful nature filled setting, we simply could not recommend this highly enough. Also make sure that you try some of Dave's gourmet scotch eggs. They are amazing, trust us !! We definitely hope to visit again as soon as possible.
