destination York & the Yorkshire countryside

We might be biased – but we think York is a truly fabulous city,  steeped in history and filled with visitor attractions. In fact, it has a larger number of visitor attractions per square mile than any other UK destination – how’s that for a must-visit?
York’s must-see attractions are made up of fantastic museums, locally-loved restaurants and eclectic shopping districts.

However, we know not all of York’s visitors want to stay in a busy inner-city hotel. We offer an alternative to our guests: our resort is located within easy driving range of the city centre, as well as being located in the midst of the Yorkshire Wolds, to ensure a peaceful countryside ambience. Make the most of York’s bustling city offerings, and enjoy perfect peace in the countryside at the same time –  retreat to Kilnwick Percy’s simple tranquillity every evening.

special York hotel deals

Our hotel rooms often get booked up quickly, thanks to their amazingly unique offering and the truly unparalleled luxury that they afford. Surrounded by acres of Yorkshire hillside and forest, these stunning woodland pods are perfect for short breaks in the region. Here at Darwin Escapes, we’re working with only the best suppliers and designers, to ensure we provide you with an unforgettable woodland stay.

We have twin and double hotel rooms, all of which are equipped with flat screen TVs and complimentary fast Wi-Fi. We even occasionally have availability in our highly-sought after Huxtable Suite –  perhaps our most indulgent offering, Huxtable offers a super-king-size four-poster bed as well as its own private outdoor cedar-clad hot tub! If you see this one listed in our feed of last-minute York hotel deals, then make sure you snap it up quickly  – it won’t be on here for long!

log-cabin deals Yorkshire

Our hotel rooms are simply exquisite, but it is perhaps our log-cabin style holiday lodges which are the most famous. These gorgeous, comfortable units are fully equipped for self-catering, with modern kitchen facilities and a spacious dining area both of which are located in the open-plan living area. You may decide to enjoy your meals on the outdoor decking area, which can come with private BBQ hire options available to lodge occupants. Enjoy a truly fresh BBQ under the picture-perfect blue Yorkshire summer sky to round off your holiday in style. Also to be found on the outdoor decking area of our top of the range units is a private outdoor hot tub, for the ultimate in luxury.

Guests are also provided with complimentary Wi-Fi for the duration of their stay, as well as the luxury log-cabins being equipped with flat screen TVs (which you can make the most of with our DVD rental offering!)

Two-bedroom to four-bedroom log cabins are available here, with pet-friendly units also available so that you don’t have to leave the four-legged members of your party back home. Please be sure to select a pet-friendly lodge if you are planning on bringing your pet along with you on the trip so we can make sure they’re catered for, too!

the KP Resort facilities

It isn’t just our accommodation which draws people from far and wide; it’s our amazing facilities here at KP!

These facilities include one of the best restaurants in Pocklington, in the form of the Glasshouse Restaurant, as well as our industry-leading gym, The Box, open for free to lodge guests between 9:30 and 4:30! The Box gym takes a holistic approach to fitness, which caters for our members’ mental well-being alongside their physical fitness. Equipped with only the best equipment and offering a range of fitness classes, this is a facility which will be available to you throughout the duration of your stay. This also covers the Nordic relaxation area, which has stunning woodland surroundings and a swim spa for a truly unique swimming experience, in addition to massaging hot tub facilities.

Our holiday resort doesn’t just cover 180 acres of Yorkshire Wolds countryside for no reason, it also offers guests the chance to explore our on-site natural trail as well as practising their golfing skills with The KP Resort being home to one of Yorkshire’s finest championship golf courses.

York activities & attractions

Despite the many facilities are on the park, we know many of our guests are keen to stay with us to explore York City Centre. Don’t worry – we always encourage our guests to venture out, if they want to! In York, you’ll find a plethora of visitor attractions which are sure to appease the needs of visitors with varying interests and in a wide range of age groups. The family won’t ever be at risk of getting bored, during your York city break.

The city is filled with museums which tell the story of its rich history. These include the Yorvik Viking Centre, York Castle Museum and, of course, the world famous York Minster Cathedral which is the centrepiece of the city, and is perhaps the best example of the gothic architecture which is in evidence throughout the city streets!
