We like swimming and slides. I like the cottage and the garden. We went to a theam park the boat ride was scary but the other rides were fun. And we went to the beach and we was eating food and there was lots of seaguls and they wanted my chips. A lovely holiday!!
We have had a lovely relaxing week. Very clean comfortable lodge. Toured every day. Just make sure you have 40p for toilets in Whitby. Would definately come again.
This was an idyllic week in early May. Puffin lodge is everything you need. It is so well equipped and maintained you could easily live there! Living and dining room furniture is comfortable as are the beds. Two bedrooms en suite have lovely powerful showers with plenty of hot water. Bedding is crisp and white and ample towels are provided. The heating is set perfectly and we didn't need to change anything, although you could if you wished, instructions are provided. On booking there was an option to have the twin beds zip locked to form a double, this was perfect and one of the reasons we booked. We requested this option, it was acknowledged and later confirmed. It didn't happen and we had to push the 2' 6" beds together and fill the gap with one of the quilts because as a 70 year old I was afraid I would fall out in the night!! The people who service the lodge left a laundry sack with the request that we strip our beds on leaving and place all linen and towels in said sack. Who is meant to be on holiday here? I could stay home and do that! I ignored the request as I had paid the required fee for our stay. I did however leave the kitchen spotless and emptied all bins in the bathrooms and kitchen, which I thought was fair enough. Be warned, unless you are a dog lover! At the end of our stay it was coronation bank holiday weekend and most accommodation was in use. There is most definitely an epidemic of dog ownership, everyone has at least one dog, there was a couple of women with four! Puffin Lodge allows no pets so you may be wrong footed. The swimming pool is lovely, but then I had it to myself! The club house/pub is nice but full of dogs and wine is ridiculously expensive.
Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and were happy with everything at Puffin Lodge. We are sorry that your request was not fulfilled but if you had asked our housekeeping company during your stay they would have made up the two single beds into a king size one. The request to put laundry into a sack at the end of your stay was introduced during the pandemic but this may change in the future. Although we have never accepted pets at Puffin Lodge, The Bay is "dog friendly" and so furry friends will be found everywhere on site! Paul and Karen (owners).
Had a lovely holiday. An excellent well-equipped lodge, with everything thought of for a very comfortable stay. A great base for exploring the local area - Bempton Cliffs (we saw some puffins), Flamborough and Filey. Weather not too good but we made the most of it. Thank you.
Wow to the puffin. Proper home from home experience. Loved every minute. Sunday lunch lovers must try the Buccaneer in Filey. Proper home cooked dinner. Alpamare Scaborough is fab for kids and adults. Hope to see the puffin again. Thank you Karen & Paul.
This is our second visit to The Bay, but the first stay at Puffin Lodge. The lodge is perfectly kitted out, right down to the ice-cube tray. On arrival, the lodge was very clean, the beds are comfortable and it's like a home from home. We used the lodge as our base and during the days, explored the neighboring areas. "Trenchers" at Whitby is a go to for proper fish & chips! We absolutely loved our stay. Thank you for such a lovely stay in your beautiful lodge.
We have had a lovely week away at Puffin Lodge! The lodge was spotlessly clean and had welcome packs for cleaning essentials and a drink and snack when we got there. Little details had been thought about (games to play as a family, first aid kit, welcome pack etc) and The Bay itself was a good location. We have already looked to come back later in the year!
A gorgeous place to stay, so relaxing. We've loved every minute. So comfortable and cosy. Everywhere spotless and clean and fresh. It's got everything we needed. Definitely a place to stay. Thank you.
Puffin Lodge is a really lovely place to stay; very clean, welcoming and well equipped. Ideally located for lots of day trips too. The only negative was the sleepers leading up to the door: they were very slippy when wet, which was most days! Other than that we have had a lovely week. Thank you.
Puffin Lodge Cabin was spotless and well equipped enjoyed our stay very much we would highly recommend it thanks from Rosemarie and David
We had a fabulous stay at Puffin Lodge, it was very clean when we arrived and there was a welcome pack waiting for us with tea and coffee etc. The lodge is very spacious with plenty of storage, and the kitchen is well equipped. I would recommend this holiday home to families, its close to the beach which was lovely.
Response from owner: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. Paul and Karen (owners).
Lovely accommodation in an excellent location.
Response from owner: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Puffin Lodge so much that you have booked for next year!
We have had a lovely family holiday. The lodge has been perfect for our family with our two young girls. It is well equipped with everything we would ever need. It is well equipped with everything we would ever need. We have felt at home here and it was beautifully clean when we arrived. We will hopefully return to puffin lodge soon.
Have had a lovely holiday. Great lodge and wonderful location.
One of the best equipped self-catering homes we have stayed in. Minor issue with rip in couch leather worsening over the week!
Response from owner: Thank you for your review. We do try to supply everything you might need for a self catering holiday! We are replacing the sofa but there is a long wait for delivery so we expect it to be in place in the autumn.
Fabulous stay in this lovely lodge. Immaculately clean and very comfortable. Really well equipped and will definitely return. My only future request would be to have bigger wine glasses! Beautiful few days away! Thank you.
Response from owner: Thanks for this great review. We did buy bigger wine glasses but found they didn't fit in the dishwasher so went back to the smaller ones!
Lovely modern clean lodge, everything you need. Nice location, beautiful place and would recommend it to anyone.
We had a great stay at Puffin Lodge. The lodge itself was so clean and the location is great. We can't wait to go back next year.
Lovely accommodation at Puffin Lodge. Very clean on arrival and all the little extras were outstanding. The personal touches were fantastic. We have enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Lovely site close to the coast. Thank you xxx
The lodge was very warm and cosy, we enjoyed the log burner very much. Made good use of the indoor heated swimming pool and had a meal at the pub on site. Nice staff very friendly. Only problem was the wooden sleeper used as a pathway to the side door of the lodge, when wet extremely slippery.
Response from owner: Thank you for your review. It sounds like you had a great time! A solution is being looked into for the slippery sleepers.
When we walked into Puffin Lodge, we all felt at home and thought what a beautiful, cosy and very comfortable lodge it is. We had a wonderful weekend, Karen & Paul, will be back. Thank you.
A lovely little cottage with all you need regarding cooking, heating etc. Would have given a higher overall rating but found the seating in the living area uncomfortable.
Response from owner: we are pleased you liked the cottage but are disappointed you found the seating uncomfortable as the sofa was new in April 2021 and the tub chair new in November 2019.
Good holiday accommodation.
This was our second stay at Puffin Lodge and it didn't disappoint. There had been some improvements since last year which confirmed the owners commitment to providing a first class holiday accommodation. Thank you once again Paul and Karen.
Great lodge - love the decor. Great having Netflix however needed a code to unlock. Bed comfy and excellent shower. Suggestions - bread bin, toilet timer on for less and Netflix passcode leaving.
Response from owner: Thank you for your suggestions but we do not have a Netflix account and previous guests have used their own accounts while staying at Puffin Lodge. We will look into providing a bread bin (we just use the cupboard!) and check the toilet timer.
Filey the bay was amazing and I especially loved the comfortable beds. But we could of done with some blankits. Puffin Lodge was an extraordinary beach hut the perfect place for a late night party and chillaxing! We had a beautiful outdoor space perfect for football and bowls. The bedrooms are 100% relaxing. Also quite close to the centre of the bay. From Ted PS on the first room down the hall on the left the words that spell BEACH you can open!
Response from owner: We are pleased you had such a great holiday. We don't provide blankets as Puffin Lodge has central heating plus a log burner and there are 10.5 tog duvets on all the beds.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at Puffin Lodge. The lodge is perfect - very well equipped and exceptionally clean. We will be back!
Enjoyed our stay at Puffin Lodge. Quiet and peaceful. Just the tonic we needed!
Had a lovely stay at Puffin Lodge. Only concern is about sleepers very slippery when wet.
Rather expensive for just a Friday & Saturday night!! But it was good accommodation.
Response from owner: Thank you for the 10/10 rating and we are pleased that you liked the accommodation. The booking was actually made for three nights - Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Short breaks will always be proportionally more expensive than a full week but that's the way the self catering holiday industry works!
Really enjoyed our stay at Puffin Lodge. Spotless clean and everything we need. Weather has been good too. Filey is a lovely little place. Hope to be back. Thank you for a great stay. Wendy & Jean.
We had a brilliant time, the lodge is fabulous, absolutely spotless. Amazing walks along the coast. Thank you for a great stay.
Had a great stay as page befor absolutly spotless on arrival would stay again in a heartbeat, a special word for cleaning people, thanks.
Had a lovely stay. Lodge beautiful and absolutely spotless! Will definately be back.
Excellent in every way! I would give more than 10/10 if I could.
Lovely little lodge and perfect for a little weekend away. It was clean, cosy and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. The beach is only a short walk down a signposted path and we made use of the pool and cafe which was very handy to have on site. We will certainly be returning in the near future (hopefully when the weather is a little warmer!).
Absolutely loved it! We missed all the bad weather and had warm sunshine! Didn't light the stove as the lodge was warm even without central heating on! Lovely decor, comfy beds and great location. Thank you! We'll be back!
A brilliant lodge, lovely shower in double room. Weather really good for us. Great walks.
Without doubt Puffin Lodge is the best accommodation we have stayed in (UK). Very clean home from home experience. Great location ideal for the coast and tripping to the Moors. Many thanks Paul and Karen for letting us stay.
Fabulous and well equipped lodge. Very clean. Great location. Would definitely return.
Lovely Puffin Lodge - really is a very nice place and well situated. Loved the beach and surrounding area. First time here and my boy wants to come back! (So must be good!).
Our second stay at The Bay, and again we had a fab time. The Puffin Lodge has everything we needed - with Netflex and Wifi welcome additions. We loved the beach, Flamborough Head, Whitby and Bempton Cliffs - where our 6-year-old dragged us 8 times! Thank you for everything.
Great lodge that is very clean and well equipped. Would recommend.
I loved Puffin Lodge. It was super clean, warm and cosy and homely decor. A lovely relaxing break. It was great to be able to sit and read in the sunshine on the south facing deck even in March. I like that it was not on the main road so was quiet. The only things I "missed" were salt & pepper, and cooking oil - I cooked in the lodge instead of going out to eat (due to coronavirus, everywhere was shut) and maybe some tin foil? I will definately go back as I loved the lodge, and the location, the beach is about a 10/15 minute walk away. Thank you for letting me stay in your lovely Lodge.
We have really enjoyed our stay. Puffin Lodge is warm, cosy and perfectly located. Will look at coming again.
Puffin lodge was exactly as described very clean and all the essentials you would need n a lodge will defiantly be back and already recommended to friends it was beautiful the best we have stayed in.
Lovely little lodge, more spacious than we expected! Netflix and TVs in bedrooms were great additions!
Fantastic lodge, had everything we needed. Very clean, all information available for appliances. Would highly recommend.
This is our third stay at The Bay. Enjoyed the whole 7 days. Staff and team are great. Jamie - Archery - is amazing with the children. The beach is breathtaking. We have loved staying in a "beach hut" - beautiful sunshine throughout the day. Only one small suggestion - missed having a "wok dish". Also light in main en suite goes off within a few seconds - may need to adjust timer. Timer near children's room - perfect.
Response from owner: many thanks for the feedback. We have now had an electrician into the lodge to adjust the timings on the lights in the en suite.
Lovely weekend here, very comfy and warm. A great base for exploring. The local beach is fantastic. Visited Filey, Whitby and Bempton. A great circular walk at Flamborough Head, finishing up with Sunday lunch at the cafe/pub. Thank you.
Lovely holiday home, great for kids. Lodge is super and very comfortable. Great place, thank you very much. Would recommend to everyone.
Lodge is lovely - little bit of brute force required when opening and closing outer doors. Great position for touring Yorkshire and the North Yorkshire Moors. Recommend The Deep (aquarium) Hull. Day trip to York. Day trip to Scarborough and day trip to Whitby. Food - recommend - The Filey Curry House, New Kam San for Chinese food, First Catch for fish and chips and The Piebald Pub at Hunmanby for pies.
Response from owner: many thanks for your feedback. We have instructed a locksmith to visit the property who has addressed the issue with external doors which are now easier to open and close.
Enjoyed a quiet and relaxing week in this lovely lodge which was presented in a very clean and well equipped condition. Loved the interior decor which tastefully depicted a coastal theme. The lodge is ideally located to visit the east coastal region of Yorkshire with most of the main resorts with an hour's drive. Thank you Paul and Karen for sharing your holiday home with us.
Nice chalet, nice site, 5*. Wonderful place for a relaxing break even with 2 x children 2 and 3 months.
We came for my birthday weekend and what a great time we have had. Puffin Lodge and "The Bay" surpassed our expectations. And as for the beach . . . WOW!
We had a lovely stay at Puffin Lodge - helped by the glorious weather! The kids didn't want to leave. Who needs the Cote d'Azure when we've got the Cote d'Az-Yorkshire?!
Thank you for sharing your lovely "Puffin Lodge" with us. It's been an absolutely amazing week with the kids. We've been to Whitby, Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey beach. Also great facilities. Kids have been swimming every day and I've been in the gym every morning - perfect.
Really enjoyed our stay in Filey. Puffin Lodge was well equipped and the WiFi helped to keep the kids quiet. Plenty to see nearby; York, Scarborough, Whitby etc. Weather was great and if wet we used the pool. Thanks Yorkshire.
Excellent, clean and well equipped accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Puffin Lodge. Visited Bempton Cliffs, Burton Agnes Hall (recommended!), Scarborough and walked to Filey and to the end of the Brig (look out for seals and purple sandpipers). Locking/unlocking the doors a bit like the krypton factor but maybe that's just me.
Response from owner: many thanks for your feedback. A locksmith has adjusted the doors which are now easier to open and close.
Came for my birthday. What a lovely break I've had. Everything in the lodge I needed. All clean and of a great standard. Lovely milk, tea bags, coffee and biscuits waiting for me, so I could have a cuppa as soon as I arrived, felt at home straightaway. Lovely fluffy "BIG" towels - just what I like, as well. All in all it's perfect!! 5 star!! Very cosy - can't fault it. Thank you. Could just do with couple throws/blankets to use on colder evenings when sat on patio.
Response from owner: We are delighted you enjoyed your break at Puffin Lodge. We have thought about having throws/blankets but decided against it on hygiene grounds and for the same reason don't have bed cushions or runners.
A lovely property. Felt very at home. Shame about the weather.
Another great stay, will be back next year.
A last minute, short stay and we have loved it. Crammed in so much and Puffin Lodge is just perfect. Lots of facilities at 'The Bay' and the beach is lovely. Definitely visiting again. Thank you for a much needed break.
Lovely short stay here at Puffin Lodge. Great facilities for all of us. Few more utensils needed in lodge! But so clean and welcoming - thank you.
Fantastic stay in the Puffin Lodge. The first time we have been here and we will definitely come again. The Puffin Lodge is so well equipped and very clean and cosy. Little Grace who is only 11 months old thoroughly enjoyed herself too! Thank you Paul and Karen.
Another wonderful stay - thank you. We enjoyed the Steam Punk festival and look forward to next year. Going home with a gap between our ears and shoulders that wasn't there when we arrived.
A very short, but absolutely perfect, 3 day stay to celebrate Auntie's 90th birthday. Lovely weather and an absolute delight to stay at Puffin Lodge. Thank you for a real "home from home" - and gorgeous fluffy towels too!
Brought mum for a short break. Had a lovely stay. Well presented and homely feel. Very clean.
Thank you for sharing your lovely Puffin Lodge. A truly relaxing stay in a lovely area. We would definitely return for a short break. Perfect.
Had a lovely stay at Puffin Lodge. Enjoyed using the on-site pool, sauna and steam room. Recommend the tapas place in Filey for a meal out! Thank you.
Such a wonderfully refreshing stay in your beautiful Puffin Lodge. We appreciated the thoughtful touches ensuring all who stayed here enjoyed each moment. Feeling very reluctant to leave. Glorious weather, stunning beaches, happy memories.
Thank you for a wonderful break at Puffin Lodge. Myself and 3 children aged 10, 4 and 3 had a fantastic 3 night break.
The lodge is beautifully presented, clean and well equipped.
It is well situated for access to the village facilities, swimming pool, activities etc
I would highly recommend this property.
What a beautiful lodge! Thank you so much for the short notice booking. We had a great time. The facilities here are great. Thank you.
Lovely cosy lodge. Very clean and well equipped. Beds very comfortable and whole accommodation lovely. Had a great New Year break, many thanks for allowing us to use your accommodation. One point to mention we had an elderly relative with us who struggled with the slippy sleepers outside. Other than this, a wonderful stay. Thank you.
Response from owner: The site management are aware of the slippery sleepers and are looking into solutions.
Another thoroughly enjoyable stay at Puffin Lodge. Beautifully kept and spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. Highly recommended.
Great stay as usual. Thanks. Enjoyed the ghost walk too.
Excellent, fun-filled holiday! Fabulous lodge and fabulous site. Loved the decor and comfyness of the lodge. Thank you Paul and Karen for providing us with the welcome of such a beautiful lodge. We will definitely be returning next year. PS: I plan on decorating our kitchen with the same colour scheme!
We stayed at puffin lodge a couple of weeks ago, last weekend to say goodbye to the summer holidays and what a lovely place. Turned up to the lodge to find everything clean and tidy, lots to do in the local area and the kids had a great time. Unfortunately the weather let the side down a little bit but it was nice to play some board games with the kids until it dried up a bit. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next summer!
Fantastic! Perfect cottage. Great outdoor space for the kids. Just to the highest standard. We've stayed at The Bay before and this was our best cottage by far!! We loved it and will be coming back.
We had a fabulous stay at Puffin Lodge and the girls have already expressed they want to return for another trip.
Wow, what can I say . . . 2 weeks in this wonderful lodge and the weather was kind to us too. Our 4th year at The Bay and we love it. Would definitely return to Puffin Lodge. Thank you!
Very impressed with the lodge on arrival. Spacious and comfy and loved the decor. Perfect little holiday home. Our boys loved spending time on the beach. Wish we had a couple more days but looking forward to returning next year.
Had a fabulous holiday - Puffin Lodge is fantastic! We have stayed in quite a few properties on The Bay but Puffin Lodge is certainly the best!! The kids loved all the outdoor space to play and made friends with all the other children staying here too. Looking forward to returning in 2019 - just hope we can get the same lovely hot sunny weather!
Excellent holiday lodge 5*. We had a lovely stay. Booked whilst here to return at the end of September. The weather was kind to us. So enjoyable. Thank you.
Puffin Lodge is a beautiful holiday home. Lovely facilities and the decor is amazing. We have had a lovely stay and would definitely come back again. PS: Thank you for sending us amazing weather!!!
We were impressed with Puffin Lodge as soon as we arrived. Lovely accommodation, excellent facilities, very comfortable. 5 star all round! Enjoyed walking into Filey most days (been lucky with the weather)! Had a fabulous, relaxing week and hope to return for a second visit. Thank you Karen and Paul for letting us stay at your lovely lodge.
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely lodge. We love how clean and comfortable it is. The furniture and decor is to an outstanding standard. Parking just outside and close to loads of places to visit. The folder with visitor suggestions proved very useful. This is our second stay at Puffin Lodge as we like it so much. Will hope to come back soon. Many thanks.
Lovely, quiet relaxing weekend. The weather has been kind, glorious in fact on Saturday. Enjoyed Steampunk Filey. Puffin Lodge has everything you need and furnished to a high standard. Thank you for letting us stay - hope to come back again.
Many thanks for letting us use Puffin Lodge. Lovely and clean and everything we needed. Weather could have been better though! Lots of info for places to visit and takeaways, great idea for people to look over. We've stopped here many times and love the beach houses. Many thanks again.
Thank you Karen and Paul for sharing your gorgeous holiday home - just as per the wonderful pictures, except the weather let us down! However we did get out and about to see everywhere we wanted to. It's a super walk from here to Filey and Malcolm at the Pines Cafe was so welcoming, a great beach for a morning run too! Favourite was Whitby and the visit to RSPB Bempton Cliffs - 2 cuddly puffins have gone home with us as holiday reminders! We hope to come back one day.
What a lovely place to stay for a holiday - very central to explore Yorkshire. Very relaxing. Shame about the weather but we made the most of it. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay in their relaxing lodge.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful beach house at February half term it was brilliant. We will definitely be rebooking at some point.
The Lodge is exquisite - the photos don't do it justice. It has been beautifully finished with wonderful touches like lights that come on when you open a bathroom door. The seaside theme is carried through everywhere and very tastefully done. It was lovely and warm, even though there was snow on the ground outside. It was a short walk to the beach and along the beach into Filey itself where there were lots of places to eat.
We've stayed at a few places on The Bay Filey, but nothing comes close to Puffin Lodge. This is holiday accommodation of the very highest order. It is superbly furnished, immaculately decorated and pristinely clean. It even had a small illuminated Xmas tree and Xmas decorations to make it feel very festive over the holiday period while we were there.
A big plus over other places we have stayed is that both bedrooms have their own bathrooms; a wet room en-suite in the master bedroom, and a shower cubicle/wash basin/toliet in the 2nd bedroom. Here, as throughout, the furnishings are to a very high spec.
It was lovely to come back to a warm, cosy lodge at the end of a day out, the lodge has HIVE-controlled heating, and was lovely and warm even when it was bitterly cold outside. There is car parking outside the lodge, and a lovely decking area with a table and chairs, a bit too cold to use while we were there, but a great place to chill out on a nice day.
We will definitely book again, and will recommend it to friends and family - it is simply the pinnacle of holiday accommodation.
We've had a wonderful Christmas. So glad we decided to stay here.
Thank you to Karen and Paul for allowing us to stay in Puffin Lodge. It's a lovely cabin and we like the decorations around. We look forward to staying here again at The Bay soon. Thanks!!
Very nice place. Very well kept and comfortable. See you next year.
Gorgeous property in a lovely setting. Perfect for a weekend away visiting the coast. We'll definitely be returning to Puffin Lodge and The Bay.
Very nice place. We like the theme of the decorations. Nice and clean and very good quality throughout. Thank you Karen and Paul for letting us use your lovely lodge.
Been to The Bay before and stayed in different properties. Watched the Beach Houses being delivered and installed. Thought we must try a stay in one. Were not disappointed. Loved Puffin Lodge. Everything fresh and new. So comfortable and cosy. Sun from morning to night on decking. The seaside theme with all the nic naks is lovely. Very well equipped. Must return for a longer stay and make use of log burner.
