Probably the worst meal we have ever paid for. My husband ordered 'Posh Fish and Chips". The batter on the fish was wet and the fish was not cooked properly and inedible (he can usually eat anything). Suspect it was cook freeze and not regenerated correctly. I ordered crispy duck with roast vegetables, I asked if it was mediteranean vegetables and was told it was. The crispy duck was frazzled and could have been sold as crisps, and the mediteranean vegetables were carrots, roast potatoes and parsnips! Cabins are great but eat in the nice restaurants in Pocklington do not waste your money at the KP restaurant.

We stayed in a hotel type lodge (4 ensuite double rooms per lodge). Our room type was the Faversham Suite situated on the first floor which comprised of a super king bed and ensuite walk in shower. The room had a large picture window in the bedroom and had lovely views overlooking the adjacent golf course. There are 7 of these hotel type lodges and a mixture of 27 self catering 2/3/4 bedroom lodges, and all are very well appointed with luxury fixtures and fittings including a small safe to keep ones valuables in (if you have any). The lodges complex is within the 200 acre Kilnwick Percy Golf Club grounds, and the views from the club house to the far horizon are fabulous.

The glass house restaurant serves a nice breakfast (at extra cost) and evening meals were tasty and of good value.

The Yorkshire Wolds is a lovely area to visit and there are plenty of nice places to visit in the vicinity, with plenty of countryside walks available. I would definitely recommend this accommodation as a lovely place to stay (we paid £100 per night [room only] late June 2014.

We went to the restaurant as it is listed among the top 10 in Pocklington on Tripadvisor, and the location looks pleasant.
The table we had was directly by the large glass window with beautiful views (see picture). The waiters have shown average attentiveness and food and drinks were served within a reasonable amount of time. The first course was a Classic Prawn Cocktail for 6.50GBP, the main course Grilled Salmon Fillet for 11.95GBP. While the salmon on couscous was nice, the piece was ridiculously small. And there was the fact that in hygiene, the score was only 4 out of 5, while one can expect to see 5 out of 5 for excellent restaurants.
So all in all: nice views, decent food but pricy for some dishes and hygiene not perfect.

We stayed in the lodges No 30, without the extra thrills of a hot tube and patio area.

Really nice area to stay in. The Lodge (no 30 Hockney suit) was modern and clean. It could have done with bedside lamps as the light switch was next to the front door.

We had the breakfast, food was ok.
My wife asked for poached egg on toast, "we could have the poached eggs, but had to make our own toast from the food table!" But we don't know when you're bringing the eggs? oh well. (We had scrambled eggs on toast the day before without a problem!

Overall a good place to stay, just a couple of tweeks from house keeping to get the 5th star

We stayed at the lodges and had dinner here on our first night. The food was pretty good. My Cajun chicken with sweet potato was very nice. My husband's pie was ok but lacking in filling. The staff were really helpful and friendly particularly when it came to our toddler! The kitchen very kindly made him his favourite pasta. The deserts were a bit over-priced but they always are. The decor is lovely and we would recommend a visit.
