The space
Orchard Lodge is a scandinavian log cabin sited in its own 1/4 acre secluded plot with covered verandah and timber decking.
We will greet you on arrival, and guide you to the private parking at Orchard Lodge, and personally show you around your accommodation. You will then be able to enjoy the peace of the site and surrounding fields with only the sounds of nature, and an occasional agricultural noise to disturb you.
We are however close enough to respond to requests for assistance, as we live just 100m away in the original Mount Pleasant Farmhouse screened from view by the trees of the old farm orchard and gardens.
Accessing our property, from the public highway, you pass 300m through the Mount Pleasant Park Home Estate, a retirement village, which guests are occasionally surprised to find, however it is completely separate from Orchard Lodge, and our property.
Please respect the 10mph speed limit when passing through this retirement village, as these are our neighbours, and the residents are friendly and polite.
Entering our property there is a sign right to Mount Pleasant House, our home, and left to Orchard Lodge. Call at our home to be guided to the private floodlit parking at Orchard Lodge and be shown personally around your accommodation.
This is the beginning of your relaxing break in Orchard Lodge.

Guest access
The cabin is all yours during your stay. Central Heating and Hot Water are available 24/7 via a combination boiler.
Wi fi has recently been improved , to a super fast set and is freely available during your stay.

Other things to note
York is a very busy place particularly during York Race days and school holidays therefore we recommend you make use of our excellent Park & Ride facilities, to get into the city available just 2 miles from Orchard Lodge at Askham Bar. Alternately cycling is very popular due to the flat landscape and good network of cycle routes.
Orchard Lodge is ideally placed for visiting the many delights of Yorkshire, the east coast, the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors, see the guidebook section for a further details.

The best of both worlds: Beautiful riverside village in the rural fringe of the City of York with Askham Bar park and ride just 2 miles away.
Why not visit one of the the 8 village Pubs all serving food within a 5 mile radius of the lodge, see the guidebook section for a further details.
The famous walls and ancient buildings of the City of York are only 4 miles away with a wealth of historical sites, festivals, restaurants and bars.
Surrounded by the Vale of York there are miles of beautiful countryside to walk, cycle or drive through.
Alternatively we are central for trips across Yorkshire and its many delights, Leeds, Harrogate, Wakefield, Bradford, Helmsley, Hull and Whitby to mention but a few see the guidebook section for a further details.

I am a freelance Architectural Designer, a Social Media fan, and I enjoy Contemporary Art. I have a broad interest in food and hospitality which I have inherited from my parents who were both chefs and worked in hotel management. As Chair of Trustees for Acaster Malbis Memorial Hall, I am able to contribute to an important part of our village community, which is also a living memorial to those who served in the First World War. Born in Yorkshire with parents from the South and the North, I haved lived in several parts of England, and am both passionate about economic development in the Yorkshire region, whilst having an understanding of how this relates to the rest of the country. The story of York, the many layers of history that are still available to see in the buildings and artefacts here, are a constant fascination to me and the thousands of visitors that York attracts every year from around the world. This beautiful little city has such an illustrious past, and I believe a great future!

During your stay
Guests can access the property immediately on arrival using the key box having parked in the private floodlit parking area outside the Lodge gate.

We like to meet and greet you on arrival, if we are available and will show you personally around Orchard Lodge.

We live just 100m away screened by the trees of the old orchard and gardens, and are therefore close enough to respond to requests for assistance if required, but far enough away for you to be private in your own 1/4 acre plot.

This is the one of the secrets of a relaxing break in Orchard Lodge.
