Married with 2 girls and a personal trainer I love being outdoors. Whilst you can't beat hot weather, running, mountain biking or just walking round Skipwith common on a frosty morning is one of my favourite things to do.

First class!

  • 5 out of 5
Eight of us just spent a family weekend away here, and we loved it!

Mark, the owner was extremely easy to deal with when we booked, and although we arrived late in the evening, he was waiting to welcome us. He even put pizza and wine in the fridge for us!

The house itself is large, clean, well fitted out and very comfortable. A lovely big sitting room, and a large well-equipped kitchen. A real home-away-from-home, in fact.

Our chief interest in the area was York itself, and this pretty village was a perfect distance out- quiet, but close enough to drive easily to the York park-and-ride.

We'd happily stay here again! Highly recommended.

Willowside is an ideal base for a peaceful break and very popular with walkers. Skipwith Common is a wonderful place to visit anytime of the year. Covering 274 hectares it is England's newest Natural Nature Reserve and has a wide variety of wildlife for you to enjoy only 60seconds from the front door.Within Skipwith Village and a two minute walk from the house is The Drovers pub which serves lunchtime and evening meals. Also in the village is Oakmere fishing lake with day passes available, plus Yorkshire paintball centre. Skipwith is situated 15 minutes south of York and 10 minutes from the park and ride at the 'Designer Outlet,' a favourite with shoppers, and provides easy access to the beautiful historic city of York.

At Willowside we like to think we can cater for all your holiday needs whether it is just relaxing and doing your own thing or doing something a little bit different. York only 15minutes away.
