  • "The lodges was decorated and furnished to a very high standard but we felt like ..."

    The lodges was decorated and furnished to a very high standard but we felt like it needed a good old vax with the wet and dry hoover and because it was light carpets the stains were really noticeable Also there were no chemicals in the hot tub , the dispenser was empty the full time we were there and I’ve been unwell since I got back I asked around if anyone had a hoover they would lend us but no one did so there was all bits on the floor which drove me wild , I’m a very clean and tidy person I did mop the kitchen floor but feel like a hoover wouldn’t have gone amiss As regards the kitchen , what a really well stocked and plenty of cupboards kitchen this was , missing a jug and some Prosecco glasses , I have loads at home I could have brought some too Also on the Saturday we came back from a day at the designer outlet to find the hot tub had been switched off at the isolator and it was only like warm which was very odd so we couldn’t use till the next day really , also it was not very private from next door so they had to close all their curtains so they could be private , it needs some screening round it I think These are not criticisms as such just pointers for improvement, we had to be home on Sunday so we missed a night as it was a minimum three night stay which I expected but overall we had a really lovely stay and I would come back again purely for the tranquility and listening to the birds

  • "We had an excellent stay exploring the attractions of nearby York and returning to relax at the Owl’s nest, which catered for all our needs and more."

    It’s difficult to find somewhere to holiday in the February half term with all weather attractions but York kept us entertained all week. I would recommend this break to anyone looking for the same truly comfortable relaxing (the bed is heavenly) place to stay with attractions nearby.

  • "Owl’s nest was a getaway to remember!"

    Firstly the pictures online do not do the lodge justice, the inside is so clean and the decor is modern compared to other lodges I have seen. A nice touch was the TV already having a Netflix, prime video and spotify login provided. Upon arriving we did have issues in finding the lodge as we had another vehicle parked in our designated parking spot which was the only downfall to our trip. However, the hot tub was amazing and already running upon our arrival. I would recommend Owl’s nest as a getaway if you would only like to spend your break at the lodge as there isn’t much to do around the area, but there is a booklet provided with important info and recommendations. All in all we all enjoyed our time there and I would definitely recommend!

  • "We loved our little get away it was for our son's 18th birthday."

    Who loved the hot tub !! Very good as we where able to bring the dogs. Only thing wished the full area was fenced off around the hot tub for more privacy. A beautiful lodge cabin with everything you need. Would definitely recommend

  • "We had a really pleasant stay at the Owls nest, the lodge is cosy and has fab facilities."

    The only downer was we missed out on nearly two days of the hot tub during our stay due to maintenance issue, still waiting on the owners to get back to us about this! Despite this issue we would definitely still recommend and return.

  • "The lodge is lovely, but we were rather disappointed to find a large number of dog hairs on the property."

    I am 8 months pregnant and allergic to dogs so this was a very uncomfortable experience for me. I have taken several images of dog hairs found around the property, some of which were in the bedding. I don’t think the lodge was cleaned efficiently prior to our arrival.

  • "Lovely little campsite, very clean and tidy."

    The pictures are exactly like what you get and it smelled lovely. We did some walking while we was there and We would definitely stay again to do some more.

The property

Wilberfoss 1.8 miles.

Set on the Oakwood retreat country park in the village of Newton on Derwent in the East Riding of Yorkshire lies Owl’s Nest, a stylish, single-storey lodge.

With a hot tub and off-road parking, the lodge is perfect for a family or group of friends and their two pups to enjoy a break, whether that’s staying in and unwinding, or venturing out to explore the delightful county.

Arrive at the lodge, step into the open-plan living space to find a beautifully furnished social hub for your trip.

Utilise the kitchen space for dinner, with a wine cooler for your evening tipple, dine as a group while you plan your next day out, then relax on the sofa while you watch Netflix on the Smart TV.

From here, you can make your way outside onto the decking for an evening of stargazing from the hot tub or breakfast alfresco on a crisp morning.

When sleep calls you have three bedrooms to choose from, a king-size with an en-suite shower room, perfect for parents or a couple, and two twins, where children or friends sharing can catch their rest.

Completing the interior is a sleek shower room, with a toasty heated towel rail where you can prepare for the day ahead.

Spend your days trekking around Allerthorpe Common's beautiful woodlands or along the Northwood Trail.

Explore the fascinating Yorkshire Air Museum & Allied Air Forces Memorial, or head into the heart of York to view the majestic cathedral of York Minster and the 11th-century ruins of York Abbey.

Visit the York Castle Museum and York Shambles or go to the famed York Dungeon for a one-of-a-kind live exhibition.

Before seeing a show at the Grand Opera House, have dinner and beverages in the city, or stop by the local pub for a quick pint on the way back to the lodge.

Explore the magnificent Yorkshire coast with a day trip to Hornsea and Bridlington, or visit one of the many other must-see attractions in the area, such as the Askham Bryan Wildlife & Conservation Park, and the thrilling theme park of Flamingo Land Resort, all of which are just a short drive away.

A gorgeous lodge in an ideal location, choose Owl’s Nest.
