The Hot Tub



    This was an ideal property for my mother and myself for a short break. She has a few mobility issues so the bungalow worked well for us. It was well equipped. The village was lovley and we used the local shop and pub. We visited lots of very interesting places nearby. A good area to stay. Thank you!

    Lovely cottage in beautiful little village. Only a few issues - needs a blind on kitchen window - needs toilet door fixed so it closes properly - no instructions in folder for cooker - but instructions for hairdryer that wasn't there!

    a lovely warm little studio in a great location in a lovely village with a pub and a well stocked shop i would definitley stay again especially now they are installing a hot tub its a superb base for exploring york and surrounding areas only a few miles from the designer shopping complex.. the only thing i didnt like was the bed was far too firm for me hence the score on comfort but thats my preference and others may like a firm bed other than that a smashing little place

    This delightful bungalow is perfect for a short stay away from home .set back from the road with it's own garden There is every thing you require. The small galley kitchen is good with most items you would require, I could not find a jug or a small oven dish but apart from that ok. Decent sized bathroom with plenty of storage. Toilet is separate near the front door . There are 2 bedrooms the one next to the lounge is a decent size but has a terrible mattress very uncomfortable. Plus the sliding doors are a unique but unpractical. The second bedroom is a better mattress but a small room would be better a single The lounge is very nice comfortable sofas and decent sized tv. We did not like the table and chairs .not suitable for a gent with mobile issues. This bungalow is perfect for 2 but would be a squeeze for 4 .overall we like to use this cottage as it's very near our daughter

    Lilac Studio is in a nice peaceful location but still handy for York City Centre etc.

    Lovely comfortable cottage in a peaceful setting - wonderful willow tree in the large garden. In a very pretty and quiet village, with a pub (good food), shop and Sicilian cafe - superb coffee! Very handy for York, with park and ride at Designer Outlet close by. Richard very welcoming - we would recommend a stay here, and will be visiting again.

    Lovely but dated cottage, not far from York town with small local pub and convenience store. Issues with hot tub throughout stay and unable to use however contact with owner was good and refund was issued for this loss. Nice getaway however not value for money.

    We were in the property from 8 to 13/8/2021. This property is ideal for a family or 4 people. Everything was nice and clean. The hot tub is very good, a 5 minute walk away is a great pub with great food and a small local shop. Central York is a 20-minute drive away. Any problem you have can be solved immediately with the staff or directly by the landlord, and they will also give you very good advice on activities in York, so that you are completely satisfied. We would like to thank all the staff and highly recommend this property.

    Any small problems quickly resolved. Excellent procedures put in place if you needed to contact the caretaker/office. Comfortable house. Very warm. Thank you.

    Wonderful small cottage, ideal for 2 couples. Had all the equipment needed and plenty of instructions to help out if you get stuck. Well furnished, clean and in a great location in a very pretty village. The bus stop is nearby and there are buses into York every couple of hours. It's an ideal base. Local shop has everything if you run out of anything. Raised decking area gave total privacy and the step down into hot tub was perfect for us. I would really recommend this studio, one of the nicest we've stayed in and would certainly book it again.

    Great for park & ride, everything was handy, beds very comfortable


    Lilac studios was practically perfect in every way! The location wasn’t far from York city centre or other attractions. The equipment was everything you could Possibly need. The beds were a little hard and we didn’t sleep the best however this is personal preference. The hot tub didn’t work for the first 2 nights but the owner did do everything he could to get it up and running as fast as possible. The cottage was clean. The hot tub area private. If I’m totally honest I don’t want to leave. I will definitely be returning even if I do have to bring a mattress topper ha ha. But in all honesty I would recommend this cottage to anyone in fact I have!!
