Snowy Owl Lodge - 5* holiday cottage at Duks Ley
Airbnb Reviews 2017

"Snowy Owl Lodge is an absolute delight. From the fresh cut flowers from the garden, to the sheer luxury of the retreat and comfort! Well equipped kitchen, walks directly from the door and peace we can only dream of in Leeds. The hosts were very accommodating and full of local advice on walks, places to eat and trips out."

"We had a lovely stay at Snowy Owl Lodge. The cottage is immaculate and well equipped but nothing can beat the beautiful views from the cottage. This is the perfect place to get away from it all to reflect and relax. We had no mobile reception but Penny and Graham are happy for you to use the wifi in their office (although we chose not to). Penny and Graham are fantastic hosts, greeting you on arrival but then leaving you to your own devices. They were kind enough to book a local pub for us when we arrived late on Sat evening. The area is fantastic for exploring, both by foot and by bike, and we would highly recommend Snowy Owl Lodge."

"A beautiful cottage in a rural location very convenient for walking the North York Moors. If you want a no mobile signal, no wifi, away from it all kind of place but with pubs and restaurants a short drive away this is the place to be. The cottage was tastefully decorated and everything is immaculately clean, the kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom has a great bath for a lovely soak after a long walk. Definitely recommend."

"The cottage was in a lovely setting with amazing wildlife quite literally on the doorstep. We had an incredible week at Snowy Owl Lodge with plenty to explore in the surrounding area. The host, Penny, was fantastic and had thought of every detail to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. A real gem, would thoroughly recommend and would love to visit again one day."

"Brilliant location, brilliant place. Don't need wifi, just a good book and enthusiasm to explore. Fantastic place, we didn't want to leave."
