What a pleasure to wake up each morning to a 10 acre lake from our huge full length windows of five star lodge no 11. Quality and beautifully furnished with a Swedish feel, sauna and aqua bath. Even your fishing gear has its own space. I will miss sitting and seeing the astonishing view over the lake each morning over my breakfast. The owners are excellent with a welcome pack, fresh flowers and milk and tea upon your arrival. Everything is catered for and if not a phone is in the accommodation to call Neil or a family member (nothing is too much). The fishing is on your door step literally, but this is a specimen water which has depths of 18ft with carp up to 30lb and tench up to 12lb. Do note it is a hard water to fish, but you can see the fish especially from lodges 12 -14. If commercial fishing is more your thing do not rely solely on this venue. Willows fishery and Poppleton lake is only 3 - 4 miles away, both of which are commercial and my partner had two productive days at the (Willows).

York it's self is awesome with lots to do and transport links are superb, park and ride every ten minutes from the local Tesco's or York Taxis charge £7 from the venue gate or even from your lodge. Recommended takeaways will deliver to your lodge as they know how to use the gate system.

We will be returning next year. We only came back yesterday, hurry up July 2014.

Note ! this is a peaceful venue and is ideal for couples wanting a quiet holiday (not a good place for groups of youngsters or families really). Long may this continue.

Room Tip: No 11 for full lake view, no 12-14 for balcony over lake and looking onto huge carp swimming on the top of the water.

Have recently returned from a week at Holly Lodge, one of the lodges on this lovely lake near York. The accommodation was excellent, clean, and with everything you needed to make your stay comfortable (the bed was particularly comfortable). Having read the previous reviews we were anxious about meeting the owner, however, after meeting him we found him to be very helpful, he comes across as being a little reserved and perhaps people mis-interpret this as being rude? My husband came to fish and would say that it is not the easiest water to fish for a novice carp angler ... although we did see some excellent carp in the pond (but unfortunately they stayed there!). This is a great place which would meet the needs of most people. The lodges themselves are in a secluded spot near the centre of York and have a feeling of calm about them but you have all the amenties you could wish for nearby ... including the Park and Ride facility which takes you into York. It should be noted that there is a railway line which runs near the lake but this did not overly disturb us. We would highly recommend these lodges.

Lovely secluded lodges looking out onto a beautiful lake. Feels like you are in the middle of the countryside and yet only 10 minutes from York centre and 5 minutes from York racecourse.
You don't even need to take the car into York, due to the park ride across the road.
Lodges well stocked with gadgets and are extremely clean, in lodge 11 you even have your own Sauna.
Dogs are welcome and our dog Max loves the place, it's like Disney to him.
The ducks are friendly and love left over titbits.
Thank you lakeside lodges for a wonderful stay we will be back.

We had a lovely week, the lodge was clean and had a beautiful view of the lake. The Tesco Extra and Park and Ride are within walking distance, then about 10 minute ride into the centre of York. If you want to see York this is an ideal place to stay. We plan to stay again next year.
