This retreat for two adults and one child provides a relaxing base and benefits from a private indoor swimming pool and sauna.

Located just 11 miles south of York, this property, complete with private use of an indoor swimming pool, is ideally situated to allow superb access (half an hour) to the medieval city and it’s wealth of attractions. Its famous minster, castle, railway museum, city walls, Jorvik Viking Centre, river cruises and ghost walks are all available, along with easy parking and access to the city’s attractions from the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet park and ride. Selby with its beautiful abbey, the market town of Howden, the M62 motorway and A1 are all easily accessible. Within a 1 hour drive, guests can visit Beverley, Leeds and the Royal Armouries, and Hull with its futuristic aquarium and many cultural opportunities, as it has been selected as City of Culture 2017. Visit the magnificent North York Moors with its steam railway, offering a stunning scenic journey through Heartbeat Country. With other interesting places to visit such as Eden Camp, the town of Harrogate, and the seaside resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington and Whitby, Willow Lodge is ideal to use as a base for exploring, or to just sit back, relax and unwind.
The property nestles in the small village of Bubwith, on the boundaries of North Yorkshire and East Riding. The local public house lies within a 10-minute walk of Willow Lodge, which offers a warm welcome and good food. The village also has a national multi-award winning deli, wine and gift shop and a convenience store. Bubwith also offers a renowned local butcher, an Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant/takeaway and a hairdressers. The area is ideal for walkers and cyclists and with many local routes just outside the front door, the local countryside is just waiting to be explored.
Upon entering this spacious property through the electrically operated iron gates, this comfortable, one bedroom holiday home is attached to the owner’s main residence, and is sat in 1.3 acres of enclosed mature gardens and grounds. The sweeping gravelled driveway leads to Willow Lodge where there is plenty of space for parking, and the free Wi-Fi allows residents to stay in touch with work, family and friends should they wish to.
Also available for resident’s private use, at times agreed with the owner upon arrival (private swimming lessons are held for a few hours per week), is a delightful 10m x 5m indoor heated swimming pool, which is generally maintained to a lovely temperature of 30°c. The sauna, with the option to add eucalyptus oils, shower and changing facilities allows residents to relax in private spa facilities.

    A lovely peaceful lodge in a gorgeous setting. The swimming pool was a bonus and the owners were very friendly.

    The holiday home was nice and had everything we needed. We were disappointed with the availability of the pool though, the website said it was used for a few hours a week for swimming lessons. It was actually more like a few hours a day. We did get to swim daily but often found ourselves hanging around waiting for lessons to finish, sometimes this was 7.30pm. We ended up swimming early in the morning about 7am, before we went out as we knew when we got back it would be unavailable. Theses lessons also meant there were a lot of vehicles coming and going and parking right outside our open windows, so quite noisy. The sun room was nice but again quite noisy from the lessons in the pool. We did have a lovely holiday but it should be made clearer how much the pool is available before booking your holiday.

    What a gem! We wanted a luxurious of mostly rest and relaxation with perhaps some days out if we fancied it. Willow lodge is the perfect place for this. The lodge itself has everything [and more] you may need. The pool and sauna are just the icing on the cake, we enjoyed both facilities everyday [sometimes twice!]. There are private swimming lessons in the pool at set times but these did not affect us whatsoever. The garden is gorgeous and there to use if you want. Penny and Keith are a lovely friendly couple who are happy to share their local knowledge with you, they are there if you need them and not if you don't. We are itching to go back and we have only been home a week.
