Grocery and take out restaurants nearby. The place was very clean and owners communicated well throughout. Would definitely stay again.

Location was great for accessing city but also having some relaxation away. 10-15mins to york city centre. Tesco,pics and some food places 10mins away at retail park. Park was lovely bar reasonably priced and staff nice. Residents all friendly Lodge seemed very private lovely view in hot tub. Ducks everywhere which was quite nice when soaking away. Lodge very spacious. Loved the walk in wardrobes. Well equipped clean and modern feel to it. No problems getting deposit back too. Would recommend this lodge. Hopefully will return soon to have another amazing week.
