General Info

A holiday experience in itself, Sykes Lodge is a spectacular conversion of a range of Edwardian farm buildings with an aristocratic heritage. Whilst standing at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, a stone's throw from Castle Howard and only 16.3 miles from the historic City of York, the property sits in a parkland setting in some of Yorkshire's most outstanding and peaceful countryside, only 3.3 miles from the vibrant market town of Malton, itself consistently listed in The Times Best Places to Live guide. Once part of the Estate of a leading English aristocrat, Sykes Lodge is set in 10 acres of parkland and bears witness to England's agricultural and social heritage. Whilst embracing the highest standards of modern design and technological standards, the wealth of historic features in the property preserve the integrity of their richly documented past. The accommodation is aimed particularly at multi-generational family groups, with six well-presented bedrooms to choose from to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group. Here, you will find two super-king-size bedrooms with en-suites, a super-king-size bedroom and three twin bedrooms which are serviced by a further two bathrooms. Spend sociable evenings within the open-plan living room, which boasts an extraordinary vaulted kitchen with a wide range of appliances and equipment including wine and drinks chiller and coffee-making machine, as well a formal dining table and plush sofas. After dinner, retire to the sitting room where a woodburning stove and TV awaits you, or spend a moment or two within the library which provides a wealth of visitor and historical information and a variety of fiction and non-fiction books for you and your loved ones to enjoy. Continuing to impress, wherever possible, particular attention has been paid to access for less-able guests, with the provision of wide doorways and easy exterior thresholds, to the wheelchair-friendly courtyard surfaces and interior flooring. To the outside, look forward to exploring the ample seating areas, with a BBQ for rustling up some summer treats before you dip into a bubbling commercial grade Jacuzzi Spa located within the courtyard. A short car journey will bring you to Malton, which is a superb destination hub for niche shopping and particularly as a showcase for local produce, ensuring that there's no better place to enjoy a choice of high quality cuisine from country pubs to the best of independent restaurants. Malton also boasts its own cinema, golf course and mainline railway station with direct links to York, Scarborough and Leeds. For the nostalgic traveller, hop on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway at the nearby town of Pickering, promising a fabulous way to experience the unsurpassed Yorkshire landscape to the coast. Sykes Lodge is an outstanding base for a family gathering to this part of Yorkshire.

Fun week in a beautiful Lodge

5 of us spent Monday to Friday at Sykes lodge. It’s spacious and comfortable with a lot of amenities to keep you going. The beams in the rooms, the hot tub and dolly the sheep in the nearby field were the highlights for me! I am trying to work out when I can visit next time

Simply the BEST!

We stayed as a group of 6, one of the best properties that we have EVER stayed in! Alexandra the owner is fabulous, super helpful and efficient. The property was perfect, kitchen was so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. All individual bedrooms with different themes. Living room was cozy with the real fire and the outdoor hottub a real treat, sumptuous bath robes and slippers also provided. Attention to detail was second to none, no expense has been spared on this property. Close to all local amenities, York and the East Coast. We are already planning our next visit for December this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Craig x

Family holiday ages 10-74

Stayed here for 6 days, it is an amazing home in a beautiful location. There was not a single thing that hadn't been thought of. We had a disabled lady with no mobility we hired a hoist and shower chair, the owners of the house were fabulous in helping us out. The wet room (ensuite) and large bedroom were just perfect for her, so much thought has gone into the location of everything in the room, which made life so much easier. The effort that had gone into decorating the house and the information around the house as to the origins of each room and local history was fantastic and definitely worth a read. We thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to return. Thank you Alexandra and Michael xxx

Excellent property

Wow , we stayed her for a 3 night break after new year and we was so impressed with this property. It is totally stunning in a unbelievable area. 3 families stayed here and we all enjoyed it so much we want to book again. It has everything you need for a self catering holiday and the owners are lovely and extremely helpful. They made our holiday perfect! The hot tub is amazing and would be even better in the summer months. There are lots to do in the area and we cant wait to go back and explore more. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and cant wait to go back soon

Fabulous space - stylish and very well equipped

We use a lot of rental properties for our large family group and this is by far the best ever for space and comfort for large groups. The 6 bedrooms are SO comfortable and beautifully furnished with so many thoughtful touches all over the house. The sofa bed and mezzanine for the extra people worked well too. The kitchen, dining and living area is spectacular. We didn’t want to leave and will be back again. The owners live on site - invisible but available and are clearly rightly proud of their amazing conversion.
