Lodge Cottage

Located just outside the historic walled city of York, Lodge Cottage in Knapton, North Yorkshire, makes the perfect escape for couples of all ages planning a self-catering holiday in the north of England.

This romantic cottage in North Yorkshire allows couples (including those with newborn babes) the opportunity to holiday in style. Lodge Cottage is a fully restored, single-storey detached Yorkshire cottage in the countryside with contemporary furnishings that provide quality holiday accommodation.

The open-plan living area includes kitchen, dining area and sitting area that accesses a furnished rear patio, while the twin bedroom has an en-suite shower room.

The nearby Knapton pub offers superb food and excellent local ales to relax in the evening, while the region’s many attractions are within easy reach. There’s a bus route at the end of the lane for trips into the centre of York that rules out the need to find a parking space in the centre of this historic city. Check out the York Minster or the Jorvik Viking Centre, hike through the Askham Bog Nature Reserve, or head out further afield to tour Castle Howard, the market towns of Malton and Helmsley and the Yorkshire Dales.

Lodge Cottage


Ideal for exploring York.

This comfortable and well appointed cottage is close to York yet in a rural
setting. All the amenities are new, smart, functional and comfortable. We
stayed to be close to our son at York University and explore the city's history
and heritage, for which the cottage proved to be an ideal base. The owners
were kind, considerate and welcoming, making us feel like friends. We very
much hope to stay there again.

It was beautiful and just right for the 2 of us.

The cottage was a nice surprise when we got there, and the directions were easy to follow. It was very compact - everything you could possibly wish for from the biggest to the smallest item!!

It was comfortable, the view was lovely over the fields at the back of the house. The only comment I have is that the shower room could have been a bit bigger, but was adequate.

We were going to a photographic forum at York racecourse so the location was ideal, there were plenty of places to eat and drink and a lovely pub at the bottom of the road!

I would definitely recommend this property and the owner introduced himself to us, but did not intrude but just said that if there was anything we needed let him know.

Would use it again without a doubt.

Very cosy. Ideal for 2 people

The cottage was easy to find, very clean. Lots of information about things to do in the area. Very quiet. Plenty of crockery etc.Very cosy, although could have done with different heating as the bedroom could get cold, so a small heater might have helped. Would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others

Very peaceful and handy spot for visiting York.

Once again Sykes Cottages have come up trumps with another great property on their books. This is our fourth cottage or apartment that we have rented in either England or Wales and all have been of the highest quality.

A very peaceful and relaxing stay

The cottage was immaculate, and had everything for a perfect break. Beautful views in a lovely Yorkshire village, but very easy to travel to York, North Yorkshire moors, and the coast to Scarborough/Whitby. Owners live next door and were very friendly and welcoming, but did not intrude on your privacy. Would definitely stay in this cottage again.

Tardis like cottage in a great location

Loved my stay here. From the outside the cottage looks deceptively small, but the living space, kitchen and bedroom are great. The bathroom is a little cramped, but the shower works well, so no matter.

Location is great - outside the hustle and bustle of York, but still easy to reach the centre.

Well equiped, nicely decorated, comfortable furniture.

Friendly, but non-intrusive owners next door.
