“Beautiful!”
Reviewed March 21, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Myself and my partner have just returned from a very relaxing stay here. The cabin is homely and has everything you could possibly need, with more kitchen utensils than I have in my own home I must add! The cabin was immaculate on our arrival and we were welcomed by milk and some more goodies which was a lovely surprise! Carol (one the owners) had popped round a few times during the stay to check everything was okay but sadly we had missed her both times, its a shame we never got to meet Carol but we had exchanged texts throughout our stay and she is lovely. We did although meet Carol's husband Mervyn (if I have the wrong name im very sorry!) on arrival after ringing to ask for help opening the front door (we are clearly useless in the dark lol) and he had driven round, within minutes to come help us! Its so nice knowing how friendly and helpful the owners are. We were provided with towels, dressing gowns and slippers as well as some miniature toiletries which would have been ideal if we had forgotten ours. The hot tub was AMAZING, so easy to use and it even had speakers in which you can connect your phone to.

With myself and my boyfriend not being able to drive it was handy that there is a bus stop right outside the entrance which takes you into York. They run frequently and it was reasonably priced, you can also get return tickets if you are just going for a shop etc. We stayed in York all day (drinking) and returned in a taxi which only cost us around £25, which we did not think was bad.. on metre.

Although there was only two of us I can imagine with a family of six there is more than enough room for everyone, especially in the hot tub! For the summer months we also noticed a BBQ and lots of outdoor seating. We will DEFINITELY be returning very soon because we had the best time! Thank you so much for our peaceful stay at the Owl's Nest, I will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

“EXCELLENT ”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Came here for my birthday with my best friend on Monday 26 Oct to Thursday 29 Oct and we thoroughly enjoyed it and as two young girls felt very safe. What a lovely cabin, spotless and very homely with everything we could need for our stay. With tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits to a chilled bottle of Prosecco- what a lovely touch. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Thankyou for making our stay and my birthday a pleasurable one. Would definitely recommend 100%

“5 star accomodation”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

accommodation was very clean and we had everything you could think of to make it home from home.
when we booked the big selling point was the hot tub and location. but the free wifi is what made the holiday restful for us adults on the nights when we returned from a long day of entertaining the kids. we had a 10yr old and 13yr old who loved being able to play there games and stay in touch with friends.
I cant explain how immaculate this cabin was and how lovely the owners were. like I said definitely 5 stars
