We love the North Yorkshire Moors – they have everything from beautiful sandy beaches and lively seaside resorts to tranquil countryside and quaint postcard villages. Blackwell Lodges with its luxurious log cabins with private hot tubs and superb facilities is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area.
Blackwell Lodges has its own bar and restaurant and an adventure playground for the children, so it is ideal for both couples and families. You’ll have an excellent choice of restaurants and bars in Stokesley, a quaint market town, just three miles away. Chapters Restaurant, at the foot of the North Yorkshire Moors, serves classic dishes in the restaurant for formal dining with a more laid back experience in the brasserie.
The Roseberry Lodge is superbly equipped and utterly contemporary. It sleeps six people and has a master bedroom with ensuite shower. Doors lead from the bedroom onto a private decking area with your own hot tub and beautiful views across the countryside. The kitchen and lounge are open plan and attention has been paid to every detail to ensure that this lodge is stylish, spacious and designed to the very highest standard.
Darlington and Thirsk are both within easy reach of Blackwell Lodges. Thirsk is a pretty market town with some charming shops, an excellent market – open on Mondays and Saturdays – an art gallery and ‘The World of James Herriot’. Take to the water at the Darlington Dolphin Centre, a swimming pool with diving boards and water slides, squash courts and a fully equipped gym. And you can enjoy some amazing walks in North Yorkshire, such as the Cleveland National Trail or the Abbey Walk at Helmsley.

The best lodge we have stayed in
This was our fifth visit, cant wait to go back
We all had an amazing time, will definitely return.
We were lucky to have sunshine the whole time. The location is one for walking but if weather is bad there is not much else in the near vicinity to do.
Great location with lots to do in the area
was absolutely perfect, everything we asked for and more. Perfect for just relaxing and having a break away, needed to leave a day early due to family emergency and there was no hassle just handed the key in no questions asked, wonderful. Would book again for sure! especially when we booked 2 days before we went!
Fantastic stay lovely accommodation with plenty to do nearby. Bit expensive but had a fabulous time. Would definitely recommend. Us the kids really enjoyed, very relaxing
Great lodge, very clean and spacious. Kitchen had all you need to cook, and nearby pub restaurant (Thai) does a great takeaway so you don't have to cook.
Views of lovely nearby countryside obscured by hedges and fence on "out" side, and the "in" side looks into caravan / static park (a nice decent quiet one though).
A real log cabin - looks better in real life than the photos make out. WiFi worked fine. Hot tub in private screened area. A bit expensive, but you're worth it!
Fantastic lodge and the only let down was it had an electric fire and not an open log fire, otherwise it would be a 10 all the way
Beautiful lodges in stunning surroundings. It was our second time visiting (stayed in Endeavour last time) and would come again! Thank you
The lodge was excellent and very well decorated. You really couldn't fault the quality of the lodge and the pub was also very popular during the week we stayed. Unusually, the pub specialises in Thai cuisine and the choice, price and quality of the food is also very good. The location was also ideal for us in that it is within easy driving distance of many towns but is sufficiently rural to make you forget about the hussle of your normal life. There are plenty of walks available and other activities for the kids .. like digger land and the Tees barrage.
Had a great weekend in a high quality Log cabin, Great location and good pub if needed
Allways have a brill time, beautiful place to stay and best thai food served in blackwell ox
Lodge was better than expected. Very clean and hot tub was amazing.
Very enjoyable stay in pleasant surroundings with excellent lodge facilities. Just a pity that the wi-fi was unavailable for 3 of our 4 day stay. It shouldn't be advertised as available when this problem is a common one at that location.
Lodge was clean and tidy with all the facilities you could expect. Situated on a small and peaceful site and well placed for site seeing in the area.
beautiful location,if you want a relaxing holiday this is the place,hot tub was fantastic,lovely pub and great food and lovely people x
Accommodation was very good and comfortable. The only complaint was that for the whole stay the Wifi did not work although we were offered the use at the pub. I believe the owner did his best to restore it but was let down by the supplier.
This is a recommended day out for families with young children visiting the Bedale area of Yorkshire. Visit the farm and receive a warm welcome as well as a guided tour. You will have the chance to bottle feed the lambs, bath a pig and handle some of the smaller animals. Kids will love the big sandpit and the outdoor play area. There is also a cafe and indoor play area for when the weather is not on your side.
Situated in the Ripon area of North Yorkshire this popular theme park makes a fantastic day out for the whole family. The more daring will love the big and thrilling rides such as Raptor Attack, The Ultimate and Trauma Tower. For the little ones there are some excellent attractions such as Flying Camels, Dodgems and a Magic Wheel. Toddlers will like the Dragon Boats and the Lightwater Express amongst other things. There are over 40 rides and attractions in total and we think this is excellent value for money too. If you book your tickets in advance online you can save even more money and beat the queues.
Yorkshire Lavender is an amazing award winning attraction offering breathtaking panoramic views of York, a Café, Plant Nursery and Lavender Gardens. The 60 acre site is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is an excellent choice for a day trip. The onsite shops sells Lavender products such as bath and body treats, skincare, medicine and herbal remedies.
Situated in Malton in North Yorkshire this has to be one of our favourite family days out. It's a theme park and zoo all in one stretching over a massive 400 acres.
