A little confused as we thought we were looking for a site called 'vale of york' however, it turns out the site is still advertised as 'yellow top' so look out for the signs!
The lodge is very spacious and looks out over a lovely lake where you can see and interact with the wildlife. The area is remote with the nearest village 3 miles on foot down a nature trail. The village has a couple of pubs, a local shop and take away restaurants.
York and the coast are between a 30-60 minute drive away.
We really enjoyed our break however feel with the check in/out times and the some of the little extras would of made our break well worth £500 for four nights.
Recommendations we would suggest are ... Towels! £4 to rent a bath towel and a hand towel is a little much for a luxury lodge. On arrival we had to wipe the limescale off the rim of the hot tub! Also some steps in and out of the hot tub would be great! For short or elderly people this could prove quite a task?!
When you arrive you will need essentials as there is no where close by. The maintenance guy is really helpful and came to our rescue asap when we turned the hot tub off by accident.
