Welcome to...

Nestling within 20 acres of beautiful woodland, and close to the Howardian Hills, these eco-friendly lodges blend into the peaceful, tranquil environment with gorgeous views across the coarse fishing lake. Great Wood Lodges are within easy travelling distance of York, Whitby and Harrogate - and the North Yorkshire Moors are perfect for exploring on foot or by bike.

The village of Flaxton is about two miles away where there are plenty of cycle routes and walks, as well as horse riding and golf. You can also visit some of the town's pubs - The Blacksmith's in the village serves some cracking local beers. No visit to York would be complete without a visit to Betty's Tea Rooms and a tour of the 13th century cathedral.

Great Wood Lodge is timber-framed with a galleried roof and wooden oak floors. It's been constructed using natural insulation, plant oil-based paints and energy saving lighting. Perfect for four adults or a couple, there's a double bedroom with ensuite and a twin room, an open plan lounge/diner and patio doors that open onto a covered verandah with lovely views.

Book a ride on the Pickering steam train and soak up the spectacular views of the North Yorkshire Moors then head to the National Railway Museum in York for a history of the railways.

If you want a quiet, relaxing break in a comfortable and well equipped lodge, with excellent local attractions, then choose Great Wood Lodges.

Date of stay: 8th September 2017
As usual, Don and Helen were most attentive, friendly and helpful. The lodge was extremely well presented and fully equipped with everything we needed. There were even new settees that were more comfortable than before which was very nice. The surroundings were beautiful and the wildlife astounding. What with the fishing lake only a few paces away what was not to like?

Wendy

Excellent lodge and lovely owners, beautiful surroundings with abundant wildlife.
Andrew
Great Wood Lodges are spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. A very good location for visiting York and attractions nearby, such as Castle Howard. With just 4 lodges and adults only, the site is very quiet and wildlife is attracted, especially birds which use the many feeders in the surrounding trees. The lake is popular with visiting anglers (and the local herons!).
Linda
An amazing place to stay , lodges are 5* , very clean and well maintained . the warm welcome from Helen and the milk and tea are very appreciated . fishing and Dons knowledge of the area and wildlife are wonderful.
Michelle
Great Wood Lodges were exactly what we hoped for, quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of so many activities. We were particularly impressed with the kitchen, which was better equipped than our own! Thank you to Don and Helen for a lovely stay.
Tony
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in a this comfortable, well equipped lodge in an beautiful peaceful location, hidden in a wood. Great place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. We loved watching the wildlife on the lake and in the forest from the lodge windows.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely weekend break at Great Wood Lodges. The Lodge was one of just four in an idyllic woodland setting overlooking the lake. The wood is full of delightful wildlife which we enjoyed whilst relaxing on our verandah. My husband enjoyed a spot of fishing in the lake just yards from the lodge. We were welcomed by the owner who explained all we needed to know about the Lodge and park. There was a lovely welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and wine. The Lodge was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was provided - beautiful towels, and toiletries and a well equipped kitchen.

Great Wood is a fantastic place to relax and recharge. Don and Helen are the most amazing hosts, so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The lodge was perfect in every way - well equipped, homely and immacuately clean. The surroundings are beautiful and the fishing was great! We loved every minute of our third visit and look forward to going back. A wonderful place and we are even more in love than ever, thanks Great Wood.

Had excellent stay at "Great wood lodges" owners very welcoming and friendly. Lodges were very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Great views of lake with plenty of wild life. Fishing was excellent with lake having a good stock of carp averaging about 4/5 lbs with plenty of bigger specimens to be had.
