Nestling within 20 acres of beautiful woodland, and close to the Howardian Hills, these eco-friendly lodges blend into the peaceful, tranquil environment with gorgeous views across the coarse fishing lake. Great Wood Lodges are within easy travelling distance of York, Whitby and Harrogate - and the North Yorkshire Moors are perfect for exploring on foot or by bike.
The village of Flaxton is about two miles away where there are plenty of cycle routes and walks, as well as horse riding and golf. You can also visit some of the town's pubs - The Blacksmith's in the village serves some cracking local beers. No visit to York would be complete without a visit to Betty's Tea Rooms and a tour of the 13th century cathedral.
Great Wood Lodge is timber-framed with a galleried roof and wooden oak floors. It's been constructed using natural insulation, plant oil-based paints and energy saving lighting. Perfect for four adults or a couple, there's a double bedroom with ensuite and a twin room, an open plan lounge/diner and patio doors that open onto a covered verandah with lovely views.
Book a ride on the Pickering steam train and soak up the spectacular views of the North Yorkshire Moors then head to the National Railway Museum in York for a history of the railways.
