"Lovely little cottage any golf courses were great as well."
The Roost was lovely with great breakfasts but would have preferred longer opening hours
"We had a wonderful time at the paddock clean and comfortable."
lovely and quiet. we would stay here again as we did have a wonderful time.
"Lovely few days at The Paddock."
Clean and comfortable cottage, with tea bags, milk and cake on arrival! Plenty of space, and very quiet - bliss!
"Our only small disappointments is……."
The sofa is terribly uncomfortable when using for a whole evening…… lots of cushion plumping and the addition of pillows was needed. As I also cook a lot and the equipment in the kitchen could be looked at - the addition of a very large saucepan would have been great. That said I improvised, and it didn’t spoil our stay so thank you Melissa.

This was a very clean property in all aspects also it was very quiet and peaceful making it a very relaxing property also very conveniently placed for park and ride for York and outlet centre overall very pleasent
"The Paddock offers well appointed comfortable accommodation within easy reach of York."
It has a peaceful location overlooking Swallow Hall golf course.

The cottage was clean and comfortable with all mod cons very enjoyable stay we had trouble with TV signal but Melissa was very quick to sort this out for us we would definitely go again thank you
Outstanding response b6 the owner to any maintenance queries . Very peaceful and comfortable, we will definitely return. Thank you Melissa for all your hard work and attention to detail . Lynne
"We had great time there ,the cottage was very nice and clean ,well equipped."
A shame about the times that the club house ,the food stops at 3 pm so if you don't want to cook some nights you have travel out , but the pub in welldrake does great food and only 1.5 miles away. If we were coming back to York we would use this cottage again.
"The Paddock was beautifully presented and had everything we needed."
The location was lovely and with the park and ride close by it was easy to visit York. Our only complaint was the sofa which wasn’t very comfortable.
"Very clean and well equipped bungalow."
Lovely view. Would recommend for proximity to York, but bit of a journey to the coast as traffic was heavy.
"Excellent all round,accommodation, restaurant, golf course."
"Spotlessly clean, welll equipped and in a perfect location for me."
The outside seating faced South West so was sunny after early morning. In fact it would have been perfect except for 1 thing. The fabric conditioner used on the bedding was not an aroma to my liking, so I stripped off the pillow slips and used a towel of my own instead to solve the problem. Otherwise it was brilliant and I would heartily recommend a stay here.
"This property was all we wanted and needed for a base for our holiday in and around York."
On arrival we found that the property was warm, clean, well equipped and comfortable. I suppose the biggest test would be to ask the question, would we hire this property again ? The answer without hesitation is YES.
"Had a lovely weeks stay, the owners have provided everything you could possible need."
The only small thing would be that better pillows are need, the quilt and bedding quality were first rate, just the pillows let it down. Location wise it is ideal for York and the surrounding areas. We would use this as a base again. As my husband is disabled the facilities were first class. Thanks for a great stay.
"The property was very well equipped and had everything we needed, it was finished to a very high standard, the only draw back for us was we found the sofa and bed very soft and uncomfortable for our backs."
We had a brilliant week and enjoyed the golf facilities as well
"Just a perfect, peaceful little getaway, perfectly proportioned for the pair of us!"
The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. Handily it's also only a 5 min drive to the local Designer Outlet where there is a park & ride into York which we used on a couple of occasions. Observations only...the bed is lovely ..just really soft, but maybe that's just relative to what we're used to! Also...they are bath towels not bath sheets, so smaller than we are used to...but maybe that's just that we are a bit fatter than most lol!! Honestly a really lovely, uninterrupted stay & have already commended it to my parents!!
"Lovely and cosy, quality of the furnishings were 1st class ***** stars this is 3rd or 4th we have been to this cottage."
Park and Ride is 10mins by car York is about 7miles we used PnR Thank-you to the owner for cake & Bubbles not sure if Bubbles were a gift for my 70th or a standard thing that the owner does anyway very nice touch much appreciated regards Paul & Annie x
"The Paddock was a great place to stay."
Very clean and tidy. We had great communication from Melissa on how to find the accommodation. A cake was there for our welcome, with a bottle of milk to get us going. We had a great night's sleep in a very comfy and warm bed. There are plenty of eating places around the Paddock area. The park and ride was only 10mins away for our trip into York. This is a great place to stay and would gladly stop over again. Thank you Melissa and every one involved
"Lovely property and location, loved the Christmas decorations."
"Excellently equipped in every way."
Beautifully warm the whole time during sub zero temperatures. Fantastic owners who couldn't have been more helpful
"Lovely single level property ."
Spacious and nicely furnished. All utensils, crockery etc were good quality. Lovely to have log burner and nice touch to have a Christmas tree
"The property is in a great location near to York with the benefit of a rural location."
It is warm and spotlessly clean. Some nice walks next to the golf course and nice views from the cottage. We had a meal at the restaurant next to the club building. The food was well cooked and of good quality. The owners were very helpful and prompt in resolving any minor issues. Recommended.
"Great property with amazing views of the woods and golf course short drive to town or local pubs"
"A lovely holiday property in a brilliant location for visiting York and the surrounding area’s."
Parking a matter of feet away.
"We spent a delightful week at the Paddock."
It is well placed to visit York and surrounding towns, and has all the equipment need for a self catering cottage. As the temperature broke UK records during our stay, the electric fan was a nice touch. You will not be disappointed with your stay.
"Peaceful setting with walks around golf course and local woods."
Well equipped kitchen. Spacious rooms. Excellent shower. Good location to use park & ride into York and to travel to other parts of the county. Useful to have access to communal washer/tumbler dryer but more information on settings and length of programme would have been appreciated.
"The paddock was a very good standard."
This was the 3rd time we have been and it is always been clean. Just a 10 minute drive away from the park and ride to York. Will be back again next year
"We had a lovely holiday, cottage was immaculate, so comfortable and modern."
It had a beautiful large bathroom beautiful shower with all mod cons. It was beautiful surroundings so scenic and peaceful and we would defifinitely come again, just our kind of holiday.
"Absolutely beautiful cottage in the grounds of a golf course, everyone was very friendly and helpful would highly recommend and if we ever come to the area again we would definitely stop here again."
"What a lovely setting."
The bungalow was clean amd comfortable with all we could want for a relaxing stay. I would definitely recommend holdaying here and would have no hesitation in returning one day. Thank you
"This was such a perfect break."
We don't play golf but enjoyed the relaxation and views. Blissfully quiet. York is amazing near location using park and ride. Can't wait to come back next year.
"The Paddock was a delight, extremely clean , comfortable and with easy reach to many destinations ."
Parking a bonus . Loved the the quietness of location , all in all we had a delightful stay. And thank you for the cake.
"The Paddock proved to be the most delightful and cosy place to stay ."
We arrived late due to traffic problems and opened the door to a warm and toasty cottage . It was so peaceful , and relaxing we were tempted to stay in rather than explore the delights of Yorkshire .Our hosts were so friendly and helpful too . Cannot recommend enough .
"Lovely comfortable cottage."
Easy access to selby and York. Would happily go again
"Beautiful, clean cottage."
So comfortable & quiet. We had a lovely, relaxing stay & have already shared photos & recommended this cottage. Would definitely stay again. Just 2 small issues. I felt the cottage could do with some pictures on the wall , perhaps something to remind you your in Yorkshire as there's nothing personalising it once inside. & in the bedroom there are 3 windows. Two overlooking the paddock. The window at the side of the property had the car of the people staying next door parked right in front all weekend & at one point I came out the bathroom to be face to face with the Gentleman who was peering in through the window- obviously not thinking anyone was there!!
"The Paddock is a lovely place to stay, the facilities are to a high standard, we ..."
The Paddock is a lovely place to stay, the facilities are to a high standard, we have stayed there twice and can well recommend
"Our second stay at this property, good location ideal for the park & ride into York ."
Very clean & welcoming property thank you will use again in 2022.
"This cottage is probably the best we have stayed in with Sykes ."
The location could not be more peaceful with just the odd ping of golf club on ball breaking the silence . The accommodation is very clean ,comfortable and fitted out with good quality furnishings . Add to that it’s location within easy reach of a Park and Ride taking you into York city centre . What’s not to love . If you happen to be afflicted with a passion for golf then this pay as you play course on your door step would be heaven . Any time of year this property is worth a look . We enjoyed the place very much indeed
"We were extremely impressed with The Paddock."
The location, the cleanliness and the attention to detail were second to none. It was also such a lovely touch to have a cake left for us when we arrived and milk in the fridge. Not forgetting the Yorkshire teabags too!! The bed was very comfortable indeed. Everything from start to finish with booking this holiday exceeded our expectations and we would thoroughly recommend Sykes and The Paddock to everyone.
"Very clean,comfortable and well equipped cottage."
Will definitely be back
"Another stay for me on my own at the Paddock & yet again a perfect relaxing experience."
Cottage immaculate & in such a peaceful location Hosts brilliant & so friends & helpful as always. Cottage location perfectly situated for many attractions on offer. I will be definitely returning soon.
"We were delighted with the whole experience and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."
"Wonderful clean and excellent location."
Nice and quiet and lots to visit nearby
"Staff overall very friendly especially the restaurant staff."
Very attentive and obliging. Nothing to much for them. The week was excellent and felt like a relaxing holiday
"The bungalow was excellent and the owners home made cake was a nice welcome when we arrived."
(owners very welcoming.) good value for money but would not want to pay anymore when could have stayed at a b&b for less money. why keep putting prices up ? all this does is encourage people to go abroad again when we can. so much to enjoy in this country but costs drive people to away to foreign shores.
"Lovely little cottage."
Lovely and clean very comfy bed. We've been twice and would go again.
"My husband and i stayed here for a week for his birthday, what a week , the weather was amazing too the cottage had everything you needed and was in an ideal place, lovely log burner inside and the comfiest bed EVER very clean & tidy ."
... and SOOO TRANQUIL would highly recommend if you play golf or not ... The family and all STAFF were very nice and helpful... and the food in the clubhouse was fabulous and reasonably priced ... will defo be coming back
"A really comfortable cottage with excellent facilities."
The log fire was lovely in the evenings and the little touches like a cake ,milk and tea were very welcome on your arrival. We will definitely stay here again.
"A lovely, comfortable and very clean cottage."
Less than 20 minutes drive into York, easy access to North York Moors. I would recommend The Paddock to anyone looking to stay in or around York
"I have stayed here on couple of times and would recommend it totally as we will ..."
I have stayed here on couple of times and would recommend it totally as we will be going back next year if all is well tbh will help will anything you ask them if they can They have never let me down yet and so friendly If I could give a higher score I would
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stayIn this excellent accommodation."
The cottage was extremely clean, warm and comfortable. Peaceful location with good access to York and surrounding countryside. Cake was delicious, thank you. Would highly recommend.
"Everything was perfect considering the present circumstances."
"Good sized one bedroom cottage located on a golf course close to great fishing, forest walks, a huge retail outlet centre and the city of York."
Central & handy for many visitor attractions! Staff on site were friendly but not intrusive! The cottage was very clean and tidy (important in light of covid) with good facilities! Excellent central heating AND the added bonus of a log burner, laundry facilities were also handy on site AND AGAIN very clean! We WOULD happily visit this location again
"If the cottage had a dishwasher as well, this property would be 10 of 10, the owner melissa and all of her staff in the club house and restaurant were very nice people and helpful in all of our requirements."
"Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean, everything was there that you could need, wonderful location and incredibly peaceful."
Nice, friendly staff and the golf was excellent. We will be going back!!!
"Nothing. All was as expected in this quiet location, adjacent to a golf course, whilst being close to York and all its amenities and attractions."
"We had a great time staying at The Paddocks ,a beautiful cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our visit."
A lovely touch was the wedding anniversary card and the delicious cake. Thank you so much, will definitely be a return visit.
"We had a brilliant New Year’s break away."
We stayed in the Paddock for 3 nights. When we arrived the owners had left us a welcome pack and a bottle of Champagne to celebrate New Year which was most unexpected.They were really friendly and even had the fire lit for us when we returned on New Years Eve after a lovely day out. The place is very clean and is only a few minutes drive from the designer outlet and 20 mins drive into York. There is a park and drive at the outlet if you don’t want to drive into the centre. We will definitely return to this wonderful place.
"The owners were there & extremely helpful on arrival & then took the time to come & say good buy."
What more can I say just perfect. The tranquil setting of the cottage is unique then all places to visit so accessable if required. The cottage itself is of a very high standard & this being again one of my many return visits need I say more. Thank you & again having already booked my next visit.
"The cottage was more than what we expected, it was beautifully furnished and very clean and great value for money."
We really liked the homely feel the cottage gave. The location was perfect, with only a 10 minute drive into York city and a very quiet, peaceful surrounding. We highly recommend this place!
"Beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet area, and really lovely helpful people who run the cottages."
One teenie tiny thing (it’s really not a big deal) I know it’s self catering and you bring all of your own stuff but after a long journey I went straight to the toilet and there wasn’t any soap by the sink to wash my hands afterwards. Again no big deal we bought our own soap but just that little thing
"We had a brilliant time, our accommodation was amazing and in a nice quite location but still only 10 minutes from the centre - ideal!"
Would definitely recommend.
"The cottage was excellent, cosy yet spacious and was very well equipped."
It was a lovely quiet place with a pleasant outlook
"Comfortable and quiet."
Also very convenient location.
"I can't rate this cottage highly enough."
It very much exceeded our expectations being set in such a green peaceful and restful setting. The owners were very welcoming on our arrival and were always on hand at the golf club to answer any queries we had. The cottage was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. It was well equipped and spacious and the bed was a dream to sleep in. The whole atmosphere was very uplifting. When we arrived and the weather was hot, the cottage was light and airy, and when the weather turned chilly the heating was very effective and the wood burning stove was easy to use and delightful to sit in front of. The property is very near to York's 'Park and Ride' facility, which we used easily and successfully. There is a village shop and post office, a couple of miles away, in Wheldrake, which sells everything and stays open all the time.There are plenty of historical and cultural things to do in York and Beverley, and there is access to walking with beautiful views along the Wolds Way, the Minster Way, the David Hockney Trail and the Chalkland Way. We discovered beautiful Wolds villages with excellent pubs and tea rooms. A memorable highlight was visiting the gallery of wildlife artist Robert Fuller, in Thixendale.
"We were welcomed by Jonathan who showed us to the beautiful cottage."
we had tea sugar milk and Cup cakes waiting for us. the golf course and surrounding land was so peaceful and quiet. We ate in the restaurant several times. Ian and Emma were the perfect hosts. The food was the best we had in Yorkshire. We would recommend The Swallows Golf Club Restaurant.
"The Paddock is an outstanding accommodation set in lovely surroundings."
Nice and comfortable with ample parking and WiFi. 10 minutes drive away is the Designer Centre and also the Park and Ride into York.There is also a BP garage which includes a large Spar outlet and Subway is also a short drive away. It is well worth noting that within the complex is the Swallow Nest Restaurant run seperate from the Golf Club. They serve amazing food at very reasonable prices and also do a Sunday carvery. The Paddock and the Restaurant are highly recommended. We will certainly be going back as we were made very welcome.
"Set in a very quiet location within the grounds of a golf club, the Paddock was a good size, equipped to a good standard including free wifi, handy as mobile signal was not the greatest, and had convenient parking and access to a coin operated laundry facility!"
The standard was superior to many more expensive self catering properties we have stayed in over the years! Very very pleasant!
"It is really quiet and peaceful."
We were met by the owner and given our keys then left to get on with it, which is what I like. There was milk in the fridge and cupcakes on the side. Not far from the designer outlet and park and ride into york. I would highly recommend.
"A splendid little cottage with all modern facilities."
Could not find any faults with it. It is situated in a great position on a golf course. It is only 10 minutes drive to the Park & Ride. Only another 20 minutes on the bus to the Railway Station and centre. We were able to use the train for our days out at Beamish (via Chester le Street with a 15 minute bus ride - and 25% discount to this great museum,Scarborough & Newcastle. The best of all worlds.
"The lovely PEACE and quiet set into a beautifully manicured setting."
We loved watching the small RABBITS bouncing around every day. The local pubs were really good with very friendly staff and the park and ride to YORK is obviously a real bonus. If anything the photographs of the PADDOCK were exceeded by the real thing.
"Third time we have been and looking forward to returning."
We have self catering holidays many times in a year and we find The Paddocks perfect. It is cosy, light, comfortable. The owners are friendly and very helpful but keep out of your way. The only word we can use for this place is perfect.
"This is Mr Wilson, our break was completely without doubt made fantastic by the accommodation we had, the place was like something out of a magazine!"
Pristine, comfortable bed, the attention to detail was amazing and felt extremely homely, I was in senior management hospitality for over 16 years and on a professional level the owners should be very proud every box ticked nothing can be improved they always greeted us with a big smile and actually looked like they love what they do so a huge thank you from us we will definitely return 100% so book yours now guys you will not be disappointed.
"I found the cottage very clean,the owners very helpful & pleasant."
The cottage was easy to find,& quite near the park & ride for York
"The owners were lovely."
A cake and a pint of milk upon getting there. Theyre mother in law lent us a map. Bed was so comfy. Tranquil place to unwind which is what we both needed my husband didnt want to come home and not far from a supermarket and the park and ride to get into york
"Would have liked to have been told about the work ongoing next door, on other cottage being built."
"This was our second visit and it was just as excellent as the first time."
It is exceptionally clean, comfortable, warm and well equipped. The kitchen has just what you need and no draws full of stuff you don't need. A wonderful peaceful place, we hope to be back.
"Very friendly owners, nothing too much trouble for them."
"Excellent location and a very pleasant, nicely appointed cottage."
Perfect for exploring york and the surrounding area during the day and retiring to a quiet home in the evenings.
"Very friendly staff & owners go out of their way to make you welcome."
ideal location for gentle walks in the forest and for transport link into york.
"The property was excellent."

York 6 miles.
The cottage is set within the most tranquil green and luscious Swallow Hall Golf Club and has pleasant views from most of the windows a mere 6 miles from the historical city of York.
This beautiful cottage is a perfect retreat for couples wanting a touch of luxury, the traditional woodburning stove is perfect for taking the chill off cooler evenings and as a focal point it is an ideal spot for reminiscing following a perfect day out.
The spacious bedroom has a king-size double bed and the en-suite completes the luxury touch.
An open plan sitting, dining and kitchen area completes this perfect oasis amongst the green!
As a place to stay the cottage is perfectly placed to discover why North Yorkshire attracts millions of visitors each year.
The historic city of York is one of the great medieval walled cities of the world and needs no introduction and the close proximity of this jewel in the Yorkshire crown enables you to discover something completely different day after day.
Walking the amazing city walls, browsing the independent shops, visiting The Shambles, the Railway Museum, the Jorvik Centre and a myriad of activities offers something for absolutely anyone and everyone!
However the county offers bustling market towns and picturesque villages; the North Yorkshire Moors National Park; a rich heritage of castles, monasteries and private mansions and some great outdoor areas to explore from the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds to the woodlands of Dalby Forest.
Note: This cottage is next to Refs. 904788 and 904237, together they sleep 10.
About the location
Howardian Hills AONB 14 miles; Leeds 25 miles; North York Moors National Park 25.4 miles.
The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
