Lodge Cottage Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
This beautiful detached cottage is situated in the village of Knapton, four miles from York. The cottage affords stylish and contemporary holiday accommodation in a fantastic location. A welcoming hallway and front entrance leads to the living space, all of which is on open plan. The sitting room is light and airy and comfortably furnished with a tranquil atmosphere that is further enhanced by the patio doors leading to the charming rear patio. The kitchen and dining area are well equipped and finished to a high standard. The en-suite bedroom is spacious and again offers a restful ambience with its elegant decor. This property offers a wonderful romantic retreat for a holiday at any time of year in this stunningly beautiful region.

The historic City of York has plenty of top class attractions and activities to keep everyone of all ages entertained and occupied. Just to wander around the city and take in the different architectural styles is a feast for the eyes, and the magnificent Minster has a long and colourful history dating back centuries. A stroll down the Shambles will take the visitor along what is often called Europe's best preserved medieval street, whilst the famous Jorvik Viking centre goes even further back in time. York Castle Museum is an amazing experience introducing visitors to everyday life from different eras. With many hidden gems in this vibrant city just waiting to be discovered and the outdoor pursuits on offer in the surrounding countryside, York makes a superb holiday destination.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

This is the ideal property for two people visiting York. It is well situated in a quiet spot but convenient for the excellent Park Ride services into the city. We shall undoubtedly want to come back here.
Mrs Gilbert

Mr Dunn

It was ideally located within easy reach of York City and surrounding attractions. It was a small but perfectly formed holiday cottage in a quiet village which was exactly what we had envisaged.
Mr Clarkson

The Lodge was the perfect retreat for two. It gave us the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle but still be within striking distance of York itself and indeed a great deal of Yorkshire. The owners were next door and were very nice seeing if there was anything else we might need. They were extremely friendly, approachable and very helpful. The accommodation itself was of an excellent standard and met our needs perfectly. I am already highly recommending it to friends and family.
Mr Leedham

This is the third time I have stayed at this property. The owners are kind and welcoming hosts. The cottage is neat and well furnished.
Mrs Butler

An excellent base for exploring the Vale of York and beyond. The Cottage was warm and comfortable, and well equipped enough to cope with some reasonably complex cooking. There was lots of information on things to do in the area, and instructions for heating, appliances etc. It was very good value for money.
Mr Watson

Lodge Cottage is very small but for two people wanting a very quiet location it's perfect. There are open fields to the front and back and it is located in a dead-end lane with no traffic. The cottage is close to the excellent Park Ride terminus which makes getting into York so easy.

September 2012
The cottage was immaculate, and had everything for a perfect break. Beautful views in a lovely Yorkshire village, but very easy to travel to York, North Yorkshire moors, and the coast to Scarborough/Whitby. Owners live next door and were very friendly and welcoming, but did not intrude on your privacy. Would definitely stay in this cottage again.
Simon J
February 2014
Loved my stay here. From the outside the cottage looks deceptively small, but the living space, kitchen and bedroom are great. The bathroom is a little cramped, but the shower works well, so no matter. Location is great - outside the hustle and bustle of York, but still easy to reach the centre. Well equiped, nicely decorated, comfortable furniture. Friendly, but non-intrusive owners next door.
December 2009
This comfortable and well appointed cottage is close to York yet in a rural setting. All the amenities are new, smart, functional and comfortable. We stayed to be close to our son at York University and explore the city's history and heritage, for which the cottage proved to be an ideal base. The owners were kind, considerate and welcoming, making us feel like friends. We very much hope to stay there again.
December 2009
The cottage was a nice surprise when we got there, and the directions were easy to follow. It was very compact - everything you could possibly wish for from the biggest to the smallest item!! It was comfortable, the view was lovely over the fields at the back of the house. The only comment I have is that the shower room could have been a bit bigger, but was adequate. We were going to a photographic forum at York racecourse so the location was ideal, there were plenty of places to eat and drink and a lovely pub at the bottom of the road! I would definitely recommend this property and the owner introduced himself to us, but did not intrude but just said that if there was anything we needed let him know. Would use it again without a doubt.
December 2009
The cottage was easy to find, very clean. Lots of information about things to do in the area. Very quiet. Plenty of crockery etc.Very cosy, although could have done with different heating as the bedroom could get cold, so a small heater might have helped. Would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others
January 2011
We thought this cottagr aws lovely,warm.cosy a real get away for two!!!We would certainly go again if we were visiting York.The owners were very helpful.
