Great spot to enjoy York and the surroundings. If you want a local pub with good food head to Sutton On The Forest, 5 minutes drive, 30 minutes to walk. Rose and Crown pub good spot to enjoy food and great beer garden with plenty of room for the kids to play. Lots to do in the area.

Had a fantastic 9 days. The lodge was everything Mandy said it was and more. Great fishing, caught lots of Roach and Rudd, a 7 1/4 lb common Carp and a 10 1/2lb mirror Carp. We would suggest York birds of prey as a fab day out also The Web Adventure just down the road. The park was very relaxing and will definately be returning.

We spent a lovely weekend in the lodge to recuperate after a death in the family. Mandy couldn't have been more welcoming, even meeting us late in the evening and had put on our heating for our arrival. We were stunned by how beautifully furnished, cosy and comfortable the lodge was. Enjoyed the swimming pool with the kids. The staff on site were very warm and friendly. Going home more relaxed and rested. Thank you Mandy and David we will definately be back. A lovely bolthole from Sheffield.
