Nestled within the grounds of a welcoming holiday park, this character-packed property has all the makings of a lavish family holiday for six, and you’ll be well positioned for exploring the glorious landscape that surrounds you. Escrick is a chocolate-box Yorkshire village with a friendly reputation and a selection of taste bud tantalising eateries including a gastropub, restaurant, and a popular hotel that boasts a spa and dining facilities. York itself is only 9 miles away and is steeped in character and history with beautiful, cobbled streets, museums, local markets and a glorious minster – a beautiful city to explore any time of year. The market town of Selby is located just 5.5 miles away on the river Ouse, with many local shops and delicatessens. It is famous for its historic abbey as well as for being part of the Trans Pennine Trail cycleway.
Marvel at the peaceful setting as you ascend the steps up to the decking, pausing to appreciate views of woodland from the wrap-around veranda. Beyond the property is a wildlife pond that offers a soothing backdrop to al fresco meals, best enjoyed with a glass of something special as you fire up the BBQ. The biggest treat of all is the private hot tub tucked under the gazebo, offering a decadent spot to relax and unwind at leisure whatever the weather.
Enter this sleek, modern lodge to discover welcome packs including robes and slippers to borrow. The open-plan living space is cleverly divided into a lounge/kitchen/diner that’s filled with natural light that pours in through the French doors. Discard your boots and snuggle up on the cosy seating, watching your favourite film on the Smart TV, or gathering family and friends for an evening of board games and merriment.
The kitchen is fitted with a breakfast bar and plenty of worktop space, and there is an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, and microwave for your convenience. For those who can’t resist an excellent quality pick-me-up, the coffee machine is sure to be a hit. Dish-up hearty feasts and tuck-in around the table, swapping stories and sharing memories until the early hours. Round off your evening with hot chocolate topped with marshmallows, slipping outside to stargaze with the sound of the gently shimmering pond close by.
When it is time for bed, head through to the back of the lodge to find the three bedrooms. One offers zip-link beds that can be made up into a super-king-size bed or a set of twin beds on request. Next, the elegant king-size bedroom has handy fitted wardrobes, and the final bedroom is a further king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a Smart TV for lazy lie-ins. A family shower room completes the property for invigorating morning showers.
The holiday park setting boasts an array of activities for all ages and is surrounded by beautiful woodland walks, cycle trails and countryside. Tennis courts, a fishing lake, a bowling green and bike hire are also available (additional charges apply). There is a general EV charging point on the holiday park but not specific for the lodge.
