J. Welsh June 2018

We stayed in Holly Lodge last week, we were impressed with the beautiful site. The lodge was immaculate and well equipped with everything provided, we liked the large comfy bed especially. I fish for carp, so it suited me down to the ground. With Tesco's on the doorstep you've no need to stock up with food for the week.

We will definitely go back next year.

Just got back from a fantastic weekend away at these lodges No 9 to be precise ,what a location ,beautiful views over the lake ( from most it is as you walk around the lake you can see they are all well placed.Well fitted out and clean.Why use the car ,Tescos over the road and a couple of good pubs 1/2 a mile away food and drink.Take a stroll into York along the river 1 1/2 hrs strolling.Fishermen are spoilt at this location fish from infant of your lodge, ( get the wife to bring out the cool beer )!!!!!! p.s I am not a fisherman but this stay I might take it up. Taxis can take youafter into town from your lodge front door.takeways are just a phone call away and they deliver if req. What more can I say ,try it out ,you won't be disappointed. We will be back.....

 Took our son to York to show him where I was born.

The lodge was in a beautiful setting and had everything we required including a lovely view over the lake, and the site is so close to the city centre. It was perfect.

Our first visit to York Lakeside Lodges and, definitely, not our last! We stayed in Oak Lodge which was a perfect size for our needs! Neat, clean, tidy, comfortable and well equipped! The lake & grounds are a total oasis in the urban nature of York and at no time do you hear the city encroach! A large and well stocked Tesco only 5 mins away and the park & ride facility was a revelation! Into central York in 10 minutes! I had a great time fishing and my wife enjoyed walking round the lake, local area and watching the wild life! The owner was on hand for any problems and very helpful for our queries! Just great in every way!

Turnbull June 2017.

"Recently returned from a lovely week in the Rowan Lodge (#3). The lodge provided everything that we needed for our stay and we could not fault the cleanliness either. York Lakeside Lodges has a great location and we took advantage of the Park & Ride that was very close by".

Sarah Dunnel, 2017

"Just had a lovely stay in Holly lodge.(July 2016) The lodge was clean, comfortable, well equipped and spacious. We arrived to a thoughtfully laid tray for a cup of tea or coffee.The views over the lake were very pleasant.I particularly enjoyed watching the wildlife.The grounds are well kept.Having the supermarket, bus stops park and ride just around the corner made shopping and travel very easy. York centre a pleasant walk or cycle away if you like to be active.The owner was pleasant and informative.

Location is superb. It had the feel of the countryside, the city centre minutes away and only a short drive to the coast. I would definitely like to visit again"

Just returned from 4 days at the lakeside February 2017. The lodge was clean comfortable & well equipped with everything you need including lovely fresh flowers & a tea tray for our arrival. Ideal location for all amenities & central to york also good lake for fishing. We will definitely return nice people and very helpful thankyou see you again soon.

We will Definitely be staying again in the summer, vacancy permitting.Tesco just across the road and easy access to park and ride for city center was perfect.Thank you again for our lovely break.

Mrs Smith, 2014

" We have just returned from a lovely few days spent in one of your Maple Lodges. The lodge was in a beautiful position overlooking the lake and was really snug and warm on a chilly weekend.  It was well-equipped with almost everything you needed but, in order that people don't leave unwashed pots, we would suggest that a small bottle of washing up liquid and a few dishwasher tabs be provided. Otherwise everything was very good. "

Mr and Mrs Huges, 2014

Mr & Mrs Graham, 2014

" This is the 3rd time we have stayed in one of your lodges. We holiday quite a bit and try to enjoy short breaks and as much quality time with our family as often as we can get away, and would like to Thank you for proving us with just that. Excellent facilities a very warm welcome and kind gestures with the milk and tea and coffee and all the home from home features in your exceptionally maintained lodges. The lads love the fishing, which appeared to be well stocked with large carp, Pike and Bream to name a few that they caught, in one of the best maintained lakes in the area. Huge thanks again and looking forward to returning soon. The Addison Family and Buster the dog."

The Addison Family, 2014

" Recently visited and stayed at Oak Lodge, idyllic peaceful location yet close enough to York centre. Will be booking to go back this summer."

Mrs hinchcliffe, 2014

" Just spent a lovely weekend break at Lakeside.  Fabulous lodge, lots of space with everything you need to hand.  Excellent location, wonderful view over the lake and very relaxing and peaceful.  We took a look round Holly Lodge just before we left and will definately returning for a stay in this lodge very soon:) "

Mrs Mortimer, 2014


" Thoroughly enjoyed a girly weekend here. The lodge was immaculate, very tastefully decorated and very spacious. The grounds were beautiful, will definitely be returning. Would love to visit in the summer. ."

Mrs Parry, 2013

" I rarely provide feedback for anything but in this case I felt I had to. I have just returned from a 3 night break with my wife and our 3 dogs and this site was ideal. Lodge was perfect with everything you'd need and more. Very comfortable and very warm and cosy. Almost every need has been thought of, even down to an adjoining lockable space for rods/tackle etc. Fishing swims just yards from the lodges, ideal for me and if it wasn't for the sound of the odd train, you'd think you were miles from nowhere yet just 5 mins walk (or 2 mins drive) away is a very frequent Park & Ride into the lovely city. There are even kennels for dogs if you wish to go out. The only thing I would say is that the kennels aren't huge and I would be reluctant to leave dogs in them all day. Not a negative I hasten to add and not an issue for us because we only went into York for a few hours. Its certainly not something to put us off and we fully intend this visit to be the first of many (if they will have us back)! Wonderful place. ."

Paul and Jane , 2013

"Had a fantastic time, lodge very spacious and comfortable, overlooking the lake, excellent location, a couple of lovely restaurants 15 minutes walk away, Park and Ride excellent £5 for two to get into York centre and back. Would recommend and will certainly be returning. Staff very polite and friendly."

Gillian Saunders , 2013

"Just returned from our fabulous holiday at York Lakeside Lodges. We just didn't want to leave - the lake and surroundings were a week of 'heaven'. The entered the lodge to be greated with fresh flowers and a tray set for tea. Towels and bedding were spotless as was all the utencils. We do not fish but found the position of the site so convenient for the buses. Having a bus pass we went to York, Harrogate, Leeds and a wonderful trip to Whitby. Will be back as soon as we can. Thank you Neil for a wonderful week."

Gillian Saunders , 2013

"My father and I visited for a short break recently and had an absolutely brilliant time.
The area is so picturesque and now the autumn is here the colors are spectacular. The lakeside is so quiet and tranquil it really helped relax us.
The location is great, so close to all York has to offer wow.
The lodges are lovely and have all you need for a very comfortable stay.
We met the owners Ned and Vivian who were wonderful and so friendly they made us feel so welcome.
I would recommend York Lakeside Lodges without hesitation and cant wait to return to this peaceful sanctuary."

Malcolm Kildin , 2013

"Thank you for a lovely week (28/9 -5/10)excellent lodge, well equipped clean beautiful view of the lake.all we could wish for. Paul enjoyed his week fishing even though he didnt catch and his dad did.. we will be back.. many thanks from the Dunne family ."

Angie and Jim Dunne , 2013

"We have just had a wonderfull week at Lakeside Lodges with our puppy. First time we have experienced this kind of holiday as she is only six months old. The lodge was perfect and very very relaxing. However York was only ten minutes down the road on the "Park and Ride"so we had the best of both. We shall be certainly returnng and would recommend this holiday to family and friends. We will definately see you again."

Susan and David Finnigan , 2013

" just came back from a week in the lodges had a lovely week so do not believe all you read on other websites the lodges were modern & clean with everything one could possibly need, the fishing is great Paul my husband and Keith my brother had a great time and there is big fish in the lake as i took pic's of a man reeling a 27lb carp in and the next day he had a 33lb one hubby and brother did'nt catch one but will definately be back to try again."

Barbara and Paul , 2013


"We stayed July 2013 and had a wonderful holiday. A lovely park with immaculate lodges. We will definately be going back!"

Mrs Cummings , 2013

"Hi I've recently just left your lake after a weeks break in one of the lodges and it was the best weeks fishing I've ever had. The lake is stunning and so are the fish, I had 11 carp out in a week and they were all decent
size and immaculate"

Rhys Oakes , 2013

"stayed may 2013.everything you need in the lodge, staff very helpful beautifull surroundings, a serious lake for carpers, enjoyed the week"

Carol Morley , 2013

"We stayed here 30th March -6th, April, had a lovely time, the lodge was clean throughout, everything we needed was there"

Alan and Claire , 2013

"Just arrived back from the York Lakeside Lodges. Had a really enjoyable long weekend. The lodges are based on the outskirts of York but near enough to go sightseeing and to the York Designer Outlet.

The lodge had everything you needed and we would definately try to stay at the site again. Friends are already asking to look at the brochure that Neil gave us!"

The Haresigns , 2013

"We had a two week stay in February 2013, warm & comfortable accommodation even though the lake was frozen for many of the days, very reasonably priced electric. Friendly staff and very well positioned for the Park & Ride into York. We would have a return visit."

Graham & Hazel , 2013

"This place really is the nuts, I only concentrated on the fishing side of things so didn't stay in the cabin, but had 12 20s in one weeks fishing and 11 upper doubles and that was just fishing through the night! Highly reccomended and will be back again this year."

Alex , 2013

"Had a great week fishing at Lakeside Lodges last week. Lovely surroundings, excellent accommodation and will definitely recommend it to my friends. Did not get a 30lb but will be back to try again."

Norma Guffogg, 2011

"We had a thoroughly relaxing time in beautiful surroundings and relative peace – some of the geese were a bit noisy!Your facilities are first class and we could well be back if circumstances allow in the future."

David & Jenny Taylor, 2011


"We stayed in Oct/Nov 2011 and had THE most amazing week ever! We thought it would be a struggle being non-drivers but we were within walking distance of Tesco and the park n ride so everything was not that hard to get to.
The lodge itself was amazing and i would love to visit again soon!"

Nic & Rachael, 2012


"Beautiful accommodation. Everything a family needs. Convenient for Tesco and for Park & Ride into York. Lovely outdoor space for children to play right in front of the lodges. Excellent!"

Mrs K, WALSALL, West Midlands, 29th May 2010


"Great location."

Mrs K, Birmingham, West Midlands, 22nd May 2010

Mrs I, Penrith, Cumbria, 19th Apr 2010

"I would totally recommend this holiday to a wide number of people with different interests, the location is fantastic, close enough to all the sites of York, with a park and ride just 5 minutes walk away. Sea side resorts are only about an hours drive away. The setting is beautiful, with views from nearly every window from our cottage overlooking the stunning lake. Myself, husband, 3 children and parents all had a thoroughly wonderful time. My husband is a carp fisherman and loved fishing on the lake which was so close to the 3 bedroom cottage we stayed in he could keep coming in for cups of coffee and supplies of food etc. The cottage was very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. We will definitely return and just can't wait. Thank you York Lakeside Lodges for a totally wonderful time, we only wished we could stay an extra week."

Mrs B, MACCLESFIELD, Cheshire, 27th Mar 2010

"The lodges are very spacious and have everything you need. The park was great for families, including a small playground and ducks and squirrels wandering around the grounds. Anglers were making good use of the fishing facilities. Only a 5 minute walk to the park and ride facility and a huge Tesco extra store. Lots to do in York. The train museum and Castle museum were excellent. Waterworld at Monks Cross has good swimming pools/slides etc. The ghost walk leaving the Shambles at 7.30pm daily was great fun and enjoyed by all ages."

Mrs. C, BARROW-IN-FURNESS, 26th Mar 2010

"A peaceful and relaxing holiday in a clean, comfortable lodge set amongst a well kept park."

Mrs H, HUDDERSFIELD, 15th Mar 2010

"The park was gorgeous, and the settings, the peace and quiet and the staff were all great. The location was great for the park and ride into York, just a few minutes by bus, you can walk to the park and ride or park for free. The park was great for a romantic break away with a loved one or family. The lake was lovely, and it was brilliant being in the great outdoors - it had peace but you can still have the hustle and bustle of York too."

Miss H, BARNSLEY, South Yorkshire, 26th Feb 2010

"The holiday was a really good price, the location was very good, the lodges were fantastic had everything you needed, were warm and cosy, and Neil the manager was great and very helpful. We thought this holiday was magical, with snow on the ground and ducks knocking on the window to be feed - truly wonderful!"
