We strive to offer excellent value for money accommodation whilst trying to do our bit for the environment.  Our 8 welcoming rooms, 7 ensuite and 1 with a private bathroom are  just that, welcoming.  Tea and coffee making facilities include compostable tea and fresh coffee bags in packaging that we can fully recycle.  There’s a little fridge in the breakfast room with fresh or lactose-free milk and mini glass milk bottles for filling, so please help yourself, as we don’t believe cows produce milk in UHT plastic containers.  Each room has a little jar of instant coffee in case you want to fill a flask or prefer your coffee instant. We use Nescafe Gold Instant as it’s grown responsibly and respectfully.

We also include hair dryers and Pure Lakes – World Heritage toiletries which are ethically made and nice smelling body / hair wash in refillable bottles. If you like to travel with a large collection of lotions and potions (as Lisa does) please remember to bring them along.

You’ll find a TV in each room but we’re hoping you’ve come away, for the moorland experience and, to explore Helmsley at night.  There are some lovely pubs and restaurants in town, plus a local brewery, waiting to be sampled.  We do have WiFi and your mobile phone should get a reception.  On the ground floor is a lounge area which is perfect for plotting your moorland journeys and adventures.  You won’t find a TV in there but you will find a couple of decanters, plus books and maps, so you can sit and enjoy a welcome drink on us.

Breakfast at Carlton Lodge

Breakfast is a chance sit down, relax and really enjoy one of our favourite times of the day and as such we’d like you to leave us, and set off on your journey, feeling happy and full.  As much emphasis is placed on the breakfast part as in the bed part of B&B: we offer a choice of cereals, including a gluten free option, lovely home-mixed muesli, Greek style natural homemade yoghurt, along with bowls of fresh or dried vine fruits. There’s toast your own farmhouse white and granary breads, pancakes and crumpets.  For the main event there’s a traditional cooked breakfast, hot-smoked fish and scrambled eggs or mushrooms on buttery toast with a couple of soft poached eggs on top.  If you prefer a lighter choice you can always mix and match.  You’ll find jams, marmalade, nut butters or yeasty spreads for your toast, plus freshly brewed coffee, pots of tea, fruit juices and a choice of milks including nut or soya.

We can cater for just about every allergen and diet, but please be aware nuts appear in quite a few of our items.

For some it's simply natural yoghurt, dried fruit and muesli
