Can't believe where the time is flying to. We're into the 2nd half of 2016 already and we've just had the last of 3 wedding receptions here in the last 5 weeks. The weather was very kind to all of them, a bit of rain during the 1st one but not enough to spoil it.
Blackthorn Gate has a Facebook page. It's not something that we're used to and we have to keep remebering to post something but Mike has been putting a few things on there. We have also arrived on TripAdvisor and have some lovely reviews. It's always great to know our guests have enjoyed themselves.
We are having our website freshened up and, if you've dipped in here before you will soon notice some changes. We are also having a new video made, Mike & I and our grandchildren may make an appearance, that's if we don't end up on the cutting room floor! Hopefully it'll be all sorted by the end of the year.
Since we first opened our doors to guests in 2008 we have received a number of awards. But we didn't create Blackthorn Gate to win awards, we just wanted to make somewhere where we would have liked to stay when our children were younger and, when they grew up, and we could spend some quality time on our own in a lovely environment. We think we have succeeded and a lot of people agree as we have so many guests who come back again and again.
Situated on the border of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the Tees Valley, Blackthorn Gate provides an exit from urban life and an entry into rural peace and tranquillity. You can stay at one of our four luxury lodges and enjoy spectacular views of Roseberry Topping plus, importantly, have the whole National Park stretching out in front of your door!
Blackthorn Gate is an outdoor delight. You can enjoy exclusive fishing access to the farm’s three fully stocked ponds. You can walk on the public footpaths that cross the farm, just a short distance from your door. You can seek out the many birds and other wildlife that live on the farm. Or you can just sit back and soak up the tranquillity…more.
Our lodges have been especially designed to make your visit as comfortable and memorable as possible. Each one has a large picture window giving a fantastic, panoramic view of Roseberry Topping, at the heart of the Cleveland Hills and is also equipped with a sauna, veranda, master en-suite, drying room, flat screen television, dvd player … and more.
If you wish, there is little need to use your car once you arrive. The fishing ponds are here, as are footpaths and wildlife. There are three restaurants close by. However, there are also a wealth of local attractions to visit if you wish. The whole of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park is on your doorstep! The moors, the coastline, the market towns, the attractions andmore!
We welcome up to 2 well behaved dogs in 2 of our Lodges, Chaffinch and Skylark. There is an extra charge. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions under 'Pets' or email us to discuss.
