Enjoying splendid views over the lakes and a magnificent setting in a 30 acre private wooded nature reserve on the fringes of the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, these five superb lodges have been furnished to the highest standards. All offer spacious accommodation with beautifully co-ordinated themed furnishings. This is a relaxing and peaceful holiday base where the expanses of clear tranquil water abound with fish, wildfowl and other birds a paradise for anglers who enjoy superb coarse fishing (float fishing only permitted), and for bird watchers. This area offers a wealth of attractions and activities just a mile away, a local gliding club offers starter lessons and Allerthorpe, 1 mile, has golf and a good local pub. Pocklington, 2 miles, offers shops, restaurants, and a sports centre, and also within 2 miles are the Burnby Hall Waterlily Gardens. York is only 13 miles. Throughout the summer, the great houses of Castle Howard, Sledmere, Duncombe Park, Rievaulx Abbey and Burton Agnes Hall are open to the public and are all within easy reach. Popular Eden Camp at Malton is 17 miles and from Pickering (25 miles) you can board the famous North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway to journey over the 'Heartbeat' moorlands towards Whitby.
