“Spectacular!”

person found this review helpful

I booked Waterside House for a hen party in February 2016, and really could not recommend it highly enough! The house is absolutely spectacular - fully equipped and luxurious. So much better than I could ever have imagined!
It's clear that lots of thought has gone in to every last detail to really make it an experience to remember. The underfloor heating was fantastic, and I was especially loved the sound system which allowed me to control music at the touch of a button! All the bedrooms were so comfortable and equally lovely, and surrounding area is beautiful. Brilliant for a large party to both relax and socialise, and very private, which is helpful when there's a room full of girls singing Tina Turner at 1am!
It was fantastic to have a large house that really accommodates everyone properly, whether that be seats at the dining table, in the living room, or plates, knives and forks!
James was absolutely brilliant from first contact, always willing to help, and answer my questions, and stoke the hot tub! Would highly recommend to anyone.

Thank you Katie, I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay. I especially enjoyed hearing how well Waterside accommodates a large group, we did take great care to ensure all our guests could dine and use the whole house together as a place to create great memories.
Hope to see you again.

“Wow! This is an amzing property!”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have just returned from Waterside and we did not want to leave!! A group of family and friends celebrated a 60th birthday here - mixed ages. It was superb! Everything inside was quality. As we walked in the door and walked around all everyone said was "Wow!"
James the owner was extremely helpful and was on hand for anything we needed. The hot tub was fantastic - the views and the nature around were stunning to observe. The house ensured a perfect birthday celebration. Thank you James! A stunning property - much, much better than the photos portray! We will be back!

You are Welcome!
It's great to hear Waterside has the wow factor.
We are very lucky to live where we do, and I think that our surroundings are stunning too. And not to far from York when you need a different type of buzz!
Hope to see you again.

“Really lovely house and setting. Cant wait to be back!”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Waterside house for a Hen Party in June 2015, the house was absolutely fantastic, great design very luxurious, catered to our every need and worked very well for a group of 10.
The location was great as it was secluded and peaceful (and we weren't conscious of disturbing others) it had lots of land and great views by the canal and lots of wildlife to watch in the grounds too, hare's, pheasants and cows.
The hot tub was fantastic, a traditional design which was filled with wood to get it started, it stayed very hot for a long time and the owner James was very helpful to light it for us.
We also had other activities planned in York and James helped us with taxis which were very reliable and reasonable for a group of 10 and also took a group photo of us in the lovely house. We had afternoon tea at the Plough Inn nearby who spoke very highly of James and his hospitality.
We also managed to have time for a little walk along the canal which was lovely and would be great as a family outing or with pets.
All facilities in the house were working and were very impressive particularly the many bathrooms.The kitchen was spectacular with a wine fridge and american fridge freezer, dishwasher and lots of glasses and cutlery/plates.
Some of us from the Hen Party are planning to go back on other occasions and there has also been talk of it becoming an annual thing for us as we enjoyed it so much.

Brilliant owner James and really lovely house and setting. Cant wait to be back!
