What to do whilst on your holiday in the Vale of York:

Lush, fertile countryside, pretty market towns and a treasure trove of historic interest are all within easy reach of our holiday lodges in the Vale of York. And whichever lodge you choose, you'll be ideally located for exploring the ancient city of York. Rich in history, dominated by the magnificent Minster, York is brimming with great attractions. Within its superbly preserved city walls, you'll find quaint shopping streets and fascinating museums. Be sure to see (and smell!) life under the Vikings at the Jorvik Museum and train enthusiasts will love the National Railway Museum.
North of the city, and within a short drive of all our holiday lodges, the Vale of York's gently rolling countryside is the backdrop to traditional market towns like Thirsk – home to the popular World of James Herriot. Make time to visit Castle Howard, of TV's Brideshead Revisited fame, and Eden Camp for an evocative insight into civilian life during the Second World War. And from Pickering, you can board the North York Moors Steam Railway for a trip across the ‘Heartbeat' moolands to Whitby. Choose Hoseasons lodge holidays in the Vale of York and enjoy all these attractions, and so much more.

Reviews from the Hoseasons website

What a fantastic welcome by friendly knowledgable staff. We had an amazing break, the lodge was clean and tidy well equipped. It was just incredable sitting in the hot tub watching the badgers feeding on the nuts that we had put down for them and all sorts of other wildlife about too in this peaceful setting. If you want to get away from it all this is definintely the place for you !!!
We have just returned today from a wonderful week in a Poachers Lodge at Griffon Forest, Nr York - it certainly was a treat not to be missed. My husband and I made the most of the lodge and the hot tub, but also visited quite a few places around the area. The park itself was very good and everything stated in the brochure was spot on. We visited York a couple of time by the Coastliner Bus Service which stops just at the top of the lane on the A64 both ways. This is one place we will definitely return to in the not too distant future.
Lovely surroundings, beautiful setting, peaceful location, spacious lodges, lovely hot tub, good spacing between lodges, excellent on site shop, very helpful and friendly staff and super lady called Alice who taught my daughter to cycle without stabilisers. Good wildlife setting as well, well located for York and Scarborough, really enjoyed our holiday and hope to return there.
