The main problem was the hot tub which still wasn't up to temperature by Saturday afternoon. We reported the problem and it was fixed by late afternoon which was the main reason we stayed for the duration of the holiday. There was a vacuum cleaner just inside the door when we arrived. No electricity so it was freezing (paid by...

We were worried after reading some recent reviews but there was no need to be. The lodges were clean,comfortable and what we would call a proper wood lodge not a wood clad caravan as so many are. We went with a bag of pound coins for the electric but it was on and the lodge warmed through when we arrived,...

Arrived at Barn Owl cottage in the dark. I knew when i booked that you had to pay for the electric during your stay, but i thought they would at least leave some on for our arrival. This was not the case, we had to use our phone lights as torches to find the metre to get the lights on....

We arrived at Tantara lodges on the evening of our stay to find the lodge had not been cleaned! Greeted by a soiled toilet and a kitchen that had not seen a cloth! As we then found this was because there was no cloth, tea towel or any form of cleaning products in the lodge! The floors were dirty and...

Firstly no one was there to greet us --the key was left in the door . We did know to bring our own towels , but to be honest , for the...

Barn Owl Cottage Tantara Woodlands, Pickering, Yorkshire. Good position for holiday in North Yorkshire. On arrival key was in door at 4pm as agreed by previous phone call. Had to help other guests to find their accomodation as no staff on duty. Somebody was doing maintenance as a man kept running around with power tools but not clear if he...

Have just returned from Tantara Lodges after booking a weekend with my boyfriend and my friend and her husband. We stayed at Tawny Owl Cottage. The whole experience was fantastic. Beautiful cottage which was just what we wanted. It was clean, quiet, relaxing and had fabulous amenities. It sleeps 4 in two double four poster bedrooms, had a large bathroom...

We stayed in Tanzy Cottage which was warm, bright, spacious and welcoming. It was clean and well equipped and had everything that we needed. My only real concern was that, being with an eighty five year old and a ninety one tear old we would have appreciated a hand rail on the short flight of stairs.

We arrived 1.5hrs too early (our fault!) an electrician was fixing a light above the hot tub - which was great as someone commented previously that it was too dark at night. So we drove to the Cedar Barn for a coffee and a bit to eat. We arrived back at the lodge at 4pm and it was all completed....
