Great place to stay if you are exploring the area in and around York.
The hosts Cath and Paul made us feel very welcome and always available to help with any requests we had, even going to the trouble of printing off a train time table of the local service which enabled us to travel to York by rail instead of taking the car.
Our room was very comfortabe and clean and although it's a small touch the convenience of having clothes hooks on the back of the bedroom and bathroom door was a welcome convenience that a lot of big hotels don't seem to have any more!
We enjoyed having a small sitting room just off the bedroom which made it more spacious and enjoyable to go back to after a day of sightseeing.
The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed a couple of late evening walks around the lake, very peaceful and relaxing before settling down for the night.
Breakfast was freshly cooked, tasty and plentiful.
There is a great Italian restaurant just a two minute drive away with a good selection of takeaways and is reasonably priced.
The only downside to The Willows is the fact that the driveway leading to the house is situated off a busy main road which makes it a little dangerous to walk anywhere outside the grounds but it's just a short drive away to the lovely village of Poppleton where we recommend parking up your car and taking the bus or train to York town centre which will take around 10/15mins.
