Just returned from a week away in one of the pods and had an absolutely fantastic time. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, and we loved the little menagerie of ducks, hens and birds which greeted us every morning. Great base for exploring the local villages and the pod had everything we needed, and the thoughtful touches like the hot... More

Hi Katie I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Kingfisher House. We are a bit remote but as long as you have a car you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Hopefully the next time you come the weather will be warmer and the sun out. Thank you for taking your time to write a review.... More

What a lovely place & a great location within reach of York. We stayed in Woodview Lodge over looking the fishing lake. The Iodge was immaculate & had everything we needed. I would recommend this place for a break away.

We have been here now twice and both times were absolutely great. The fishing was good in both lakes although surprisingly it was better the first time we went that was late Autumn rather than in the summer. the location was perfect for someone like me that was happy to spend all day fishing and all night in the lodge...
