Not a quality let. Best feature was the comfy beds. It had not been cleaned thoroughly. Internal fabric needed maintenance and decor needed updating. Furniture looked like cast-offs from an auction. Shower seals dirty. Worst feature was no Wifi. If I stood outside, close to the owners house wall next door, it picked up an intermittent signal. No good for work. Sykes refused to help. Said it was the owners responsibility, even though Sykes had advertised it with Wifi, and the owners admitted it was intermittent. But that information was only in the arrival pack.

Loved every minute of our stay. We had booked the cottage because of its handy location to York where we wanted to see the Van Gogh Immersion at York, St Mary's. The rooms are cosy with a well designed living/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen itself was roomy with all you need for holiday cooking all the utensils you need. Two large and comfortable settees, so you can have one each if you want. The bedroom is spacious for the size of the cottage and there is a small en-suite as well. There are fields outside which had sheep in when we were there. Off road parking right next to the property. Leeds and Halifax a short drive away and there are park and rides for York very close by. Weather was fowl, but that's November for you, we were there for a rest anyway and so enjoyed a warm and comfortable stay. Highly recommended.

I have to say our stay at Lodge Cottage was absolutely brilliant.. It looked quite small when we 1st pulled up ,but inside was very spacious. The cottage itself was very well presented inside , everything you needed for a home from home. We were relaxed from the minute we arrived, loved watching the rabbits running around in the meadow outside. The cottage is well situated just outside Knapton village, far enough out for a peaceful stay, yet near enough to do all the things we wanted to do, Visit York etc. I only met the owner once but he was really lovely. They even left us fresh milk in the fridge on our arrival. I would certainly stay there again. Forget the extortionate price of hotels , go for a Sykes cottage, its worth every penny. Sykes themselves are a really good company. I have no complaints at all 11 out of 10 :)

Mr Anning
February 2018
Very well equipped cottage, great for a short stay,very close to York which we spent two days visiting, Park and ride very close and probably the best way to visit York.. A very nice part of the country and we will be back to have a longer stay in Yorkshire.
Mr Le Roux
November 2017
Overall a very nice place to stay, we really enjoyed our time there and would consider going back.. We loved the privacy, the closeness to the park and ride and the general environment. A few minor niggles however: - WiFi needs to be more easily accessible (a booster doesn't cost much) - A little close to a major road added some noise. - The space can be a bit tight. Removing one of the settees might help. - Two double beds rather than a single bed. Good for friends but less preferable for couples.
Mrs Prosser
November 2017
We rented this cottage so that we could spend a weekend in and around York.. The cottage was small but had everything that we needed and was in an ideal location. We were offered an extra night which made our stay so much easier - a real bonus. Thank you Sykes. There was some road noise but having the fields surrounding the cottage made you feel as if you were in the countryside, so the best of both worlds. Overall very happy with the property.
Mrs Glover

What a delightful little cottage. Perfect for 2. Warm and welcoming, comfortable and cute. Everything you need (except a washing machine) for a great holiday. Owners easily contacted. Highly recommend it.
Mr Clarkson
March 2016
The Lodge was the perfect retreat for two. It gave us the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle but still be within striking distance of York itself and indeed a great deal of Yorkshire. The owners were next door and were very nice seeing if there was anything else we might need. They were extremely friendly, approachable and very helpful. The accommodation itself was of an excellent standard and met our needs perfectly. I am already highly recommending it to friends and family.
Mr Dunn

This is the ideal property for two people visiting York. It is well situated in a quiet spot but convenient for the excellent Park Ride services into the city. We shall undoubtedly want to come back here.
Mrs Butler

An excellent base for exploring the Vale of York and beyond. The Cottage was warm and comfortable, and well equipped enough to cope with some reasonably complex cooking. There was lots of information on things to do in the area, and instructions for heating, appliances etc. It was very good value for money.
Mr Leedham

We enjoyed our stay in Yorkshire very much and the cottage was just what we wanted. Nice and secluded, quiet and in close driving distance to the City of York and surrounding towns and countryside. The weather was amazing for the time of year.

Lodge Cottage is very small but for two people wanting a very quiet location it's perfect. There are open fields to the front and back and it is located in a dead-end lane with no traffic. The cottage is close to the excellent Park Ride terminus which makes getting into York so easy.
Mrs Dawson
October 2014
A cosy, well thought out and designed cottage with friendly owners next door. Nice to have two large sofas and the kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and work tops. Had good private patio areas which would be lovely in summer. Warm and cosy, would recommend.

Lodge Cottage at Knapworth was in an excellent location in a very quiet little village. A charming well appointed place to call home while exploring the surrounds.
Mr Lambie
May 2014
Lodge Cottage was ideally located to visit the City of York. It was located near the A1237 road, which was very convenient for visiting many different places, as this was part of the ring road around York. Park and Ride in a number of different places not far from the cottage.

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.

Mrs Munro

This was a last minute decision to go away as my husband now has health problems. We really enjoyed our stay at Lodge cottage, it was very quiet which is what we wanted. 3 miles from the park and ride into York.
September 2012
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.

A brilliant cottage that we hope to visit again. Lovely quiet location but only 10 minutes drive from York.
December 2009
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
December 2009
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.
December 2009
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.
Mr Leedham
