What to do whilst on your holiday in the Yorkshire Dales:

Fantastic rock formations, flower rich meadows, open moorland and lush valleys threaded with tumbling rivers – what better way to enjoy them than to stay in one of our holiday lodges in the Yorkshire Dales? The landscape that inspired the Bronte sisters is classic walking country, crossed by the Pennine Way, and featuring spectacular waterfalls and dramatic geological formations like the famous Brimham Rocks and Malham Cove, whose 300 ft high cliff walls are truly awe-inspiring. Be sure to visit them when you enjoy our lodge holidays in the Yorkshire Dales.
There are delightful towns in the Dales to explore too – Bolton Abbey is well worth a visit as are the picturesque market towns of Skipton and Leyburn. At Ripon you can compare the contrasting pleasures of exploring the evocative ruins of Fountains Abbey within their glorious setting in the Studley Royal Water Gardens with the white-knuckle rides and family attractions of the Lightwater Valley Theme Park. In the graceful spa town of Harrogate, indulge in some serious pampering at the Victorian Turkish Baths followed by toasted teacakes at Betty’s Café Tea Rooms – one of Yorkshire’s treasures. You’ll also find Alan Titchmarsh’s favourite public garden in the town. All these and many other delights are within an easy drive of our holiday lodges in the Yorkshire Dales.

Reviews from the Hoseasons website

My friends and I stayed in the Morland lodge for a week in mid May and what a great week it was! The lodge was spacious as was the decking with the secluded hot tub, which fitted all 6 of us at once! The site is superb for wildlife, plenty of birds to see including Spotted Flycatchers and Nuthatches in the trees by the lodge as well as Dippers in the nearby rivers that are a gentle 45 minute stroll away. The park is a 10 minute walk from Gisburn where there's the White Bull Inn, a spacious friendly village pub offering good value food and drink. The restaurant on the park offers a wide vareity of drinks and hot food and dvd's to hire from friendly helpful staff. In the lodge was a very helpful information pack about the lodge, the park and things to do in the area. Got to mention the park caretaker who looks after the hot tubs and the rest of the grounds - a very approachable, friendly and helpful chap. At the end of the week we were all sad to be leaving.
This was our first visit to Ribblesdale Lodge and will definitely return, it was an ideal location to relax, the lodges were very private and did not encroach onto other residents. It is ideal as a base should you wish to visit locations, Clitheroe and Settle are market towns with plenty of shops to browse, there are restaurants and public houses in abundance that offer a wide range of food and beverages that cater for every ones taste. We have recommended this location to our family and friends as they have dogs as pets which Ribblesdale Lodge caters for.
