After our trip to Spain was cancelled, we booked a last minute break to Aysgarth Lodges and I was really pleased that we did. We booked the Scandinavian 4 (2 bedrooms plus hot tub). There was complimentary tea, coffee, pint of milk, jam, marmalade and a dog bed with dog treats and towel (a really nice touch). A few days before our arrival the lodges called and we were offered a 3pm check in (check in was at 5pm) at no extra charge and they confirmed our details including bed configuration and on arrival we were greeted at the entrance in our car and handed the keys. The lodge was spotless as was the hot tub which was checked daily. The food in the restaurant is nice and they offer a delivery service to the lodge which is done online.
But what stood out above all for my family and I was how friendly the park staff were, everybody we encountered was chatty and helpful. From the reception, maintenance, restaurant staff to the gardener who gave us some tips on places to visit. Nothing was too much trouble.
The park was great and I would recommend it for a quiet break with the family but it was the staff who made it extra special.More
