We had a lovely couple of nights in the cottage, having use of the pool and conservatory was great for our 14month old son. York is really easy to get to from the cottage via the park and ride. The Yorkshire sculpture park was also a highlight.

Willow Lodge was an ideal place to stay when visiting York. With the city just a short drive away, you can relax in spacious and comfortable accommodation, with the added bonus of a large garden and private indoor pool! Penny is an excellent host and we highly recommend Willow Lodge to everyone.

Relaxing area with some nice walks around the area, a shop five minutes walk away as well as a nice pub serving great food. Bus to York took about an hour through beautiful countryside. The lodge itself is an annex to the main house with everything you need, nicely furnished and comfortable. The pool is large, clean and heated, great to relax in. Penny is a brilliant t host who made us feel very welcome and helped us out with any issue we had.

Fantastic Easter break at Willow Lodge with our 2 year old son. The pool and sauna were brilliant! Having the pool to ourselves was perfect for getting our little one introduced to swimming, there were lots of floats and water toys to keep him entertained. The accommodation was spotless and as it's attached to the pool very convenient for getting a toddler in and out and into a shower all without leaving your accommodation. It is also set within a lovely big garden which has a large trampoline. There is a decent pub, deli and curry house within walking distance all of great standard. Plus a couple of decent walks directly outside the gates of Willow Lodge. You are half an hour away from York so is also a perfect base if your heading that way. All in all would definitely recommend Willow Lodge and Bubwith village. Thanks for being a great host Penny!

We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Willow Lodge. When the changing room extension is completed in the next couple of months this will allow our guests to have full and permanent access to the lovely conservatory and also increase the size of the overall accommodation that is available for guests, maybe allowing for a more formal sofa bed for additional guests.

Hi Alison, I am really pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Willow Lodge. I endeavor to ensure that standards for cleanliness and comfort are high for all guests, and that private use of the lovely swimming pool and sauna means that a break at Willow Lodge is hopefully that bit more special! I look forward to welcoming you back again. Penny

We are a family of 4; 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 11 yrs).

We moved to our lovely home in late 2015 as we fell in love with the garden and of course the amazing swimming pool! The children are outdoor kids and love nothing more than playing in their area of the garden or the local woods rather than being cooped up inside.

Whilst we are not very green fingered, we are enjoying working in the garden although it sometimes feels that the weeds win the battle! We have planted the vegetable beds and looking forward to eating the potatoes, carrots and fruit over the coming months.

Bubwith nestles on the boundaries of North Yorkshire and East Riding and we enjoy the many wonderful country walks just outside the front door. We have a wonderful local pub about a 10 minute walk away that does lovely food (we use it regularly) and a local deli that does amazing sarnies and cakes! The local shop is open long hours for when I forget to buy the vital ingredient for our family dinner and the award winning butchers has yummy pies and fresh meat.

We enjoy travel and have had some wonderful family holidays ranging from Wales to Canada! We are all scenery junkies and holidays are the best time that we all get to spend together without the pressures of work!

We have been providing holiday lettings at Willow Lodge since the beginning of 2016 and I, personally, really enjoy meeting our guests and ensuring that everyone has a wonderful stay.
