weekend breaks in Yorkshire

Are you considering weekend breaks to York but aren’t a particular fan of busy inner city hotels which tend to be noisy, overcrowded and offer little in the way of views?

Then why not consider staying at The Kilnwick Percy Resort which is located just 15 miles outside of the city centre but offers a stunning range of accommodation options in the midst of the tranquil and beautiful Yorkshire Wolds woodland.

Our iconic resort is highly acclaimed thanks to stunning range of facilities and our now famous customer service. The KP Resort has recently been purchased by luxury holiday park operator Darwin Escapes who will leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of excellence.

our stunning accommodation

The KP Resort is located in the beautiful village of Pocklington in East Yorkshire. It is the ideal location for an impulsive last minute weekend break in Yorkshire; providing you with a luxury retreat where you can take it easy and spend your time rejuvenating as you unwind in your luxurious accommodation and take advantage of the fabulous Glasshouse Restaurant. You can also make the most of the fantastic fitness facilities available at The Box health and fitness studio.

The Glasshouse Restaurant boasts stunning views of the Vale of York and serves a range of drinks, cakes, lunches and evening meals. The evening menu includes culinary delights including Teriyaki Salmon and a range of steaks mouth-watering from the grill. The KP Resort is also famous for its 18 hole championship golf course, great for unwinding during the day, before enjoying a chilled drink afterwards. Please note that use of the golf course must be booked in advanced due to its popularity with both holiday makers and those in the local area.

The accommodation at The KP Resort is second to none, with stunning log cabin style lodges offering modern luxury in a tranquil, atmospheric setting. Many lodges also feature hot tubs, whilst others are pet friendly, meaning you truly can bring the entire family away with you. There is also a range of twin and double boutique hotel rooms available at the resort, all surrounded by 180 acres of beautiful rolling hills and forestry.

For those who enjoy exploring, there is plenty to do in the sleepy, yet vibrant market town of Pocklington, with a range of independent shops, outlets and eateries. Local attractions include the Acorn Gallery – an independent art gallery, and Burnby Hall Gardens and Museum. Pocklington is also a great place to enjoy a relaxing or romantic walk, past canal locks, wooded heaths and nature reserves. The KP Resort is surrounded in every direction by hills, woodland and greenery, so it’s not too difficult to find a walking route to take!

York weekend breaks

Many of our guests use The KP Resort as their base as they explore the nearby city of York. York is just over 15 miles away from our stunning resort and easily reachable by car or via public transport. The historic walled city boasts landmarks such as York Minster, York Castle, Castle Howard and of course the actual walls of the city themselves.

There are also a number of museums to be explored, including the National Rail Museum, which is part of the British Science Museum Group, and is located conveniently close to the York Railway station. There are a range of events and festivals held in York throughout the year, including a number of food festivals, Roman-themed festivals and of course an eclectic variety of music festivals.

Why not enjoy a day in historic York, followed by an evening in our fine dining restaurant, or relaxing in a luxurious state of the art lodge, surrounded by beautiful scenery, vibrant wildlife and the tranquility afforded by a rural location nestled adjacent to the Yorkshire Wolds?
