About The Owner

We are Keith and Deborah Bucknell. we moved to Spain 10 years ago

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2016

Why The Owner chose York

We bought the lodge because we make many visits to York to visit family. We always found it difficult to book accommodation to fit in with our flights. We bought the lodge so we could have our own beautiful place to stay.

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful. yet ideal to visit the beautiful city of York and surrounding countryside. Great, well stocked fishing lake.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I have just returned from staying at this beautifully furnished

and decorated lodge and were very impressed, there is everything you could

ask for and more. Also thank you Debbie and Keith for the welcome basket

and milk in the fridge on our arrival.



We were very lucky to have hot weather so the air conditioning in the

bedroom was very welcome along with the outside decking area where you

could sit comfortably and peacefully. We would highly recommend anyone to

stay in this lodge and also to try the local Chinese takeaway from which we

brought back a really lovely meal.



We had a fabulous time visiting nearby York which has so much to do and

see, with many restaurants and places to stop for a drink. The walking tour

with a guide (of 2 hours) was very interesting and was free. We also

visited Harrogate which was about an hour drive away, another lovely place

to visit. We would love to return and stay here again in the future as we

still did not cover everything.

Spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished lodge. The lodge had everything we needed for our stay and was ideally located to visit York, Harrogate, the coast and lots of local attractions. Communication with Debbie regarding our booking, directions to the lodge and access were easy and always helpful. We really appreciated the lovely welcome basket too. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and would be happy to stay again if visiting Yorkshire in the future.

We had a wonderful time at this wonderful lodge. It is very modern, spacious and comfortable with everything you can think of supplied. Debbie provided us with a lovely hamper which was a lovely treat. We were lucky to have enjoyed the beautiful sunshine sitting out on the lovely decking having our breakfast and again sitting out in the evening after our busy day. The property was very clean and well maintained. There was good customer service prior to staying at the lodge and we did not need to get in touch with the owner whilst there. We travelled into York most days by bus. We would take the car to the bus stop in Strensall which is about two minutes away, it would have been too far to walk to as we had a couple of 80 year olds in our party and the park is on a busy road. The bus service was brilliant; on time, regular and only took 35 minutes to get into York. We never travel by bus but couldn't believe how cheap it was. It costs £10 for a family ticket which enables up to 5 adults to travel into York and back. If you download the app it only costs £9. We ate out every night, mainly in York. We did eat at the Ship Inn which was nice but you really need to book as it is busy. There was loads to do in York and lots of places to visit nearby. At this time of year York is extremely busy and we all agreed that as much as we loved being in York it was lovely to come back to this wonderful lodge in it's peaceful setting. If we ever go back to York we would definitely stay at this lodge.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lodge, spotlessly clean, furnished and finished to very high standard... we loved it! Never normally sleep well when I’m away from home but the lodge is situated in such a peaceful location and it’s so comfortable I had a better nights sleep than I do at home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend and hope to return ourselves next year.
