Pheasant Lodge, refurbished in 2018 is a single-storey, detached lodge set at the bottom of a steep hill in a quiet part of the picturesque fishing village of Staithes in the North York Moors National Park. With a small enclosed courtyard and an open-plan living space as well as private parking, Pheasant Lodge is the perfect base in which to relax after a day of exploring this fantastic coastal area. Staithes Beck runs alongside the site with its own waterfall and wildlife.

This charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is considered something of an artist’s dream, and even has its own popular Art and Heritage Festival along with regular workshops and artisan displays. The pretty houses and cottages dotted around the old harbour are surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, and a sheltered sandy beach is set amongst the rocky coastline. Steeped in history, Captain Cook served his apprenticeship in Staithes, and there are many old buildings to admire and a museum to take you back in time.

Modern day Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to a RNLI lifeboat station, and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) land their catch of fish, crab and lobster. There are also boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and whale watching available. An ’Illusion Trail’ guides visitors around the network of backstreets and alleyways. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the seashore. The Cleveland Way stretches its way along this dramatic coastline and is a firm favourite with walkers as it drops into many hidden bays and coves such as Robin Hood’s Bay and Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

The wonderful town of Whitby is just 10 miles away with its regular events and festivals including the Goth Weekend, a regatta and regular live music events to complement its many fabulous restaurants and bars, tea rooms and delis. Try climbing the 199 steps up to the abbey and St Mary’s Church from where you can take in the breathtaking views down into the town and out to sea.

Head inland to enjoy a myriad of walking and cycling routes that the National Park has to offer, enjoy a warm welcome in one of the many village inns dotted across the moors, or take it easy on board a steam train journey into the heart of this beautiful part of the world. Surf enthusiasts will enjoy Saltburn-by-the-Sea with its numerous surf schools and there are plenty of courses for the golfers. Alternatively, just sit back and relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity around Pheasant Lodge. Beach ½ mile. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 700 yards.

Guest Comments

"We had a wonderful week at Pheasant Lodge. The lodge had everything we needed and the site was lovely, quiet and relaxing, with friendly folk to chat to! Kim was really helpful and there if we needed any advice on the local area. We loved that there were lots of fabulous walks right on the doorstep. Can thoroughly recommend Excelsior Chip Shop, just a short walk along the road. Overall, a really lovely holiday and we will definitely stay again. Thank you Kim. You have everything spot on!"

"Lovely holiday, dog friendly, and well provided accommodation. Good walks on the doorstep. Very hilly area for those not used to it. Shops nearby for provisions, and short drive to hypermarket in Skelton. Onsite staff/owner very helpful and cheerful. Altogether a great experience, and our dog made lots of new friends!Lots of nearby attractions and places to visit - we took breakfast in Goathland at a dog-friendly cafe; got early parking in Whitby; and good beach-walks at Runswick Bay (no parking fee after 6.00pm); a bracing walk down to Staithes, and lots of traditional charm. Wherever we went, people were friendly. The location score refers to the distance from our home, rather than the situation of the lodge itself."

"Great location , amazing outdoor space and great accommodation."

Wendy, July 2021

"Lovely and clean, perfect for exploring the area. Uphill walk to go out of the site to get into Staithes which could be difficult for some. Our dog loved it, we will definitely stay again!"

Lisa, June 2021

"Fantastic little lodge, lovely quiet location."

Charlotte, June 2021

"Lovely stay at the pheasant lodge, really clean, comfortable and cosy. Great location too, would really recommend."

Rita , May 2021

"The lodge is very comfortable with everything you need although a lot of items have been removed due to Covid. Although I was prepared for the steep drive I thought that it would be a steep walk up from the beach. I didn't realise that the campsite was situated halfway down the hill and to gain access to the resort you have to walk back to the top of the hill before walking down into Staithes. It didn't however spoil our holiday but could be a bit dodgy for the less mobile.We had a few teething problems when we arrived but the owner was straight round to sort them out. If you have any problems don't be scared to ask. A very welcome short break after months of lockdown."

Ann, May 2021

"Lodge absolutely lovely. Everything that you need is provided. I would definitely recommend a break here."

Pauline, April 2021

"Friendly welcome. Helpful owner."

Max, October 2020

"Excellent property, really clean and comfortable. Great position even with the steep road. Great place for a break."

Jeremy, October 2020

"This is the second time we have stayed at Pheasant Lodge on both occasions the lodge was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The owner is very pleasant and extremely helpful we have had a very warm welcome on both our visits. Due to Covid 19, we were asked prior to our visit to bring our own towels this was not a problem to us and one we fully understood.We will certainly be recommending the lodge and the site to our friends and family, knowing that the owner Kim Smith will provide a warm and friendly welcome."

Mrs M R, October 2020

"Pheasant Lodge was cosy and spotlessly clean, which is most important at the moment. We had everything we needed although equipment and accessories are kept to a minimum at the moment. Kim said to let her know if there was anything we required as casserole dishes etc were available. We slept really well and it’s very quiet and peaceful. Good pub food available nearby but advisable to book with restrictions at the moment. Only negative is being situated in a valley at the bottom of a very steep hill you will need to use car to go out unless you are fairly fit. Also we had no phone signal until we got to top of hill so may not suit people who need to keep in contact. However we paid for wi-fi which worked well. Staithes is lovely and I would recommend the 6 mile circular walk to Boulby Cliff stopping at Fox and Hounds, Dalehouse for cheap beer on way back! Would definitely recommend Pheasant Lodge and would stay again."

Audrey, September 2020

"We had a fabulous time ,the lodge was much larger than we expected and the fenced in patio at the side and back allowed us to let our dog potter about safely. The lodge itself was perfect for us spottlesly clean with a fantastic shower and enough kitchen accessories and utensils to cook a full meal. The only thing we missed was maybe a kitchen wall clock...however we realised on holiday a lot of folk don't want to be reminded of the time."
