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.

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 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.
