Set beneath the shadow of the iconic Roseberry Topping with awesome views of this much-loved Tees Valley landmark, Blackthorn Gate makes a change from your traditional country getaway. Enjoy the lodges come rain or shine: sit outdoors on the veranda in the summer or warm your bones in your own private sauna when the weather turns chilly. It all comes with a heart too.

Here you get to hunker down in luxury chalet-style thanks to four spectacular lodges teetering on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors: Curlew and Chaffinch, both sleeping up to 4 guests and Lapwing and Skylark both sleeping up to 5. A designer's dream, each is fitted with gleaming modern kitchens, minimalist open plan dining and sitting areas with glorious vistas and super comfortable bedrooms. Each of the log cabins now features its own private hot tub for guests to enjoy at an additional charge.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Middlesbrough area?
There are two private footpaths from Eastfield Farm. Eastward taking you to the panoramic views of the towering Roseberry Topping, or if you choose to go northward you will reach the Nunthorpe Train station, giving you access to a wealth of places. Alternatively, if you want to reach the heart of the North York Moors, take a drive out to places like Whitby-the seaswept, picturesque seaside town crowned with crumbling abbey ruins that inspired Stoker's, Dracula Castle.
