IntroductionThe Old Lodge is a
stunning Tudor building, originally built in 1604, which
has been sensitively renovated and now functions as a 20
bedroom Guest Accommodation facility. Because of
its age, the building is fairly quirky, yet has good
access, and the staff are well trained and keen to
extend a warm welcome to all visitors. We are
open for tea and coffee all day, and we have a
Restaurant and a Bar, which serves a good range of Bar
snacks. We also have conference facilities and beautiful
gardens which enables us to offer a beautiful Wedding
venue to our customers.
The Old LodgingsThe Old Lodgings was purchased in
2010 to provide additional accommodation for The Old
Lodge. It is situated approximately 100 metres away from
the Lodge, on the main road. Originally,
The Old Lodgings was three small cottages that were converted
into a public house many years ago. When purchased it
was in need of extensive renovation to achieve the
required standard of accommodation.The Old Lodgings
facilities include an entrance foyer and eight
bedrooms only. Guests are invited to use all guest
facilities (dining room, bar etc) at the Lodge.

email, fax or telephone, and we have a comprehensive
website, with full details of all of our bedrooms,
including facilities and accessibility.
Our staff are happy to verbally describe any information that is available anywhere within the Lodge or on the website, e.g. menus, website, directions etc.
Malton has a good public transport network. The bus and train stations are each about 5-10 minutes walk away, and there are a number of local taxi firms, some of which offer
accessible taxi services. This information can be supplied by the staff at the Lodge.
Malton town centre is around 5 minutes walk away, and has a wide range of shops and retail outlets, including a cinema, and a number of pubs and cafes.
We have one bedroom with full disabled access at the Lodge, however many other bedrooms offer good access to guests with reduced mobility.
We offer a special ‘Do Not Disturb’ style door hanging card facility for hearing impaired, visually impaired or disabled guests, which alerts our staff that extra assistance may be
required in case of emergency or evacuation.
Arrival and Car Parking facilities for The Old
