  • "My husband and I stayed at Fishermans Lodge with my elderly father and our dog Casey, we were blown away by the accommodation, Claire the owner keeps the house spotless, and it smelt lovely too."

    The beds were comfortable and so large that I had to send out a search party in order to find my husband! All the facilities needed were on hand and our dog Casey loved the garden and her bed. The pub just across the road The Half Moon was dog friendly and served lovely food. All in all a very enjoyable experience which I would highly recommend. Thank you Claire.

    Then explained things and warned about road works might course delays and offered an alternative way in to the village. Local pub was good friendly locals. The cottage was perfect for us with a dog as it had a fenced garden with great views. It had to good showers and a bath with shower so could be accessed by young and old. Downstairs toilet was great feature not all cottages have bed this in the past. Great parking with in out driveway. Thanks for lovely week

  • "Superb cottage, finished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and furnished beautifully."

    Excellent communication with the owner, thank you Claire! The Half Moon (literally opposite the cottage) was very good value for money, the staff and locals were very welcoming and the food was top quality. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Fishermans Lodge, definitely one of the best we have stayed in.

  • "We had an absolutely dreamy stay at Fisherman’s Lodge."

    From the very warm welcome (with fabulous basket of goodies) to a smooth check out, everything was perfect. The house is wonderfully appointed, and the Aga was a complete bonus during a snowy Yorkshire holiday. Highly recommend the pub, which is just over the road. Beautiful food and the steak night is not to be missed. 20 mins from York, we used the Park and Ride once and we parked in town another time. There is a lovely circular loop walk around the village itself. There is a corner shop I’m the next village over. Bigger shops can be found in Pocklington.

    Thank you for the fantastic review, cannot quite believe we even managed to provide snow!! Property Owner

  • "Fisherman's Lodge is a lovely, warm, comfortable and well-equipped holiday home."

    Claire, the owner, is very helpful and friendly. The Half Moon Inn (also owned by Claire) is only 2 minutes walk away. It was surprisingly busy but well-staffed and the food was very tasty. The house is in a good location for getting to York. We enjoyed visiting the Yorkshire Air Museum (about 5 minutes drive away) and Burnby Hall Gardens and Museum in Pocklington (about 10 minutes drive away). We would definitely stay there again.
