Griffon Forest Lodges offer a real holiday hideaway in the heart of Flaxton, York.  Once you have driven up the long driveway to the reception desk you will literally feel like you are in the middle of no-where.  This is partly due to the well designed lodges and mature woodland surroundings that envelope the site. 

The lodges are made from natural oak and everything about your stay will be luxurious especially the lodges with four poster beds and jacuzzi baths, not to mention the twin his and hers sinks which are a lovely touch.

The cosy furnishings and cotton bed linen will complement your lodge nicely. Outside the lodge you have some amazing woodland walks right on your doorstep as well as a renowned restaurant called Tykes within walking distance.  Guests at Griffon Forest receive a 10% discount off their food bill at Tykes.

All of the lodges feature an outdoor hot tub, widescreen TV, DVD/CD and well equipped kitchen.  The Gardeners Lodge is a luxury lodge with a four poster kingsize bed, spa bath and outdoor hot tub. This lodge is perfect for couples.  The Poachers lodge is also a good option for couples.  Both the Gardeners and Poachers lodges sleep 2. The Poachers Premier is ideal for special occasions with open plan living, 4 poster bed, new soft furnishings and a 6 ft jacuzzi bath.  You will receive champagne, chocolates and red roses on arrival at this lodge.

For parties of 4 then the Keepers Lodge is recommended. This is a popular luxury lodge with outdoor hot tub, one double and one twin room. The Gardeners Premier Lodge at Griffon Forest is also a good choice for parties of 4.  This luxurious lodge is furnished to a high standard and both couples receive wine and chocolates on arrival.  Finally, the Woodmans Lodge is the largest and could be described as a very spacious and luxury lodge sleeping 5.

Close to this park is Sandburn Hall which houses an 18 hole golf course, driving range and sports bar - the ideal retreat for golf enthusiasts. You can also hire bikes at Griffon Forest reception for a reasonable fee and explore the surrounding woodland this way.

Fun Days Out in Vale Of York

Dig

Dig is a unique and somewhat educational attraction in York offering children the opportunity to enjoy excavation, discovery, and digging. Within the site is a discovery centre, several pits filled with Roman and Medieval ruins and a science lab where children can take part in exciting experiments. Staff are on hand at all times to help the children and to ensure they get the most from the experience. The attraction can get busy during school holidays and pre booking is recommended.

Castle Howard

Castle Howard is one of the regions most beautiful and historic landmarks and is located in 1,000 acres of parkland with breathtaking gardens to explore. As well as exploring the castle visitors can enjoy attractios including the unique Land Train - the best way to see the entire park. There is also a large lake offering boat trips during the summer months. In high season the site is very popular with families and offers organised activities for children including tours, talks, crafting and animal encounters. The site also has a Nature Trail which is fun for the whole family and an Adventure Playground where children can run off some energy.

Creepy Crawlies
Come rain or shine children need to be entertained and Creepy Crawlies just north of York is the perfect place! This all weather attraction caters for toddlers and children up to 12 years old with a huge array of climbing equipment, ball pools, slides, chutes and adventure areas. Adults can relax and enjoy a coffee and a snack while the kids are having fun. The site also has a large and rather impressive outdoor area with pet zone and pedal track with Go karts. There is also a pond with fish and a sensory zone where children can touch and feel new and interesting things.

Poachers was a good lodge but needs a bit of updating and the blinds in the bathroom need taking down as they were rather dirty.

Curtains a little dated, sofas don't match cushions very fusty. Dusty on top of every bit of furniture. Furniture stuck together with super glue witnesses the work man putting a chair back together with glue in lodge next door to us.

Excellent long weekend.
Barbara
Wonderful setting lovely lodge
Megan
Had a great time at Griffin, gardeners lodge was wonderful and facilities were great. Hot tub amazing, lovely to be sat in if an evening and seeing the badgers walk by!
Susan
It was the third time I have stayed at Griffon Forest and it just gets better and better. This time I booked for our wedding anniversary so the romantic setting was ideal. We took feed for the birds (as we always do) and was delighted when we had a woodpecker visit us twice. What we hadn't bargained for was the badgers... What a delight we had three badgers visit us every evening (they loved peanut butter sandwiches). We will be booking again, we have stayed at other lodges but nothing has compared to Griffon in the seclusion and peacefulness of the site.
Graham
