I can’t say enough about these lodges, first class. When we arrived it was raining and was met by a friendly face , Sue . Due to our own circumstances the manager Rod decided we would be better suited to a different lodge that he showed us to. We stayed in Cathedral Lodge which

Hot tub and peace &quiet. What more could you want. Loved our stay even though it rained that didn’t detract from a great break and chance to recharge the batteries. Dressing gown and slippers provided too for the quick nip out to the hot tub. Excellent

Really good if you want a quiet place to relax on an evening. Short walk to the centre or a £5 taxi ride. Good area to get to places to see to. Hot tub is really nice and a must. Parking is next to the lodge so great 😬

Hi Helen Thank you for your review. I am sorry you felt you had all these issue's. Whether right or wrong I would ask why you brought absolutely nothing to my attention at the time. So we could at least have the chance to see for ourselves and try and rectify. Because you did not do this I really cannot comment further other than we have received no further comments like this. I would ask who you booked through as even at the height of the season Hornblower is not £700 for 4 nights!!

Hi. The water close by varies in depth , but there's lots of waterways pretty close by. There a canal system close by as well . Recommend these lodges to everyone. We are going back later this month. Hope this helps Tony

Fishing is available outside the Riverside Lodges ie Uredale, Wensleydale, Fountains and Studley - you of course have to have a fishing licence and we have a policy of a max of two rods per lodge
