Can you park outside the lodge?

Most lodges in Yorkshire Dales offer convenient parking, often right outside your accommodation. It's super handy for unloading your gear and makes coming and going a breeze. Check with your specific lodge, as some might have a central car park, but it's usually just a short walk away.

What if it rains during my lodge break?

Rain can't spoil the fun! Lodges are equipped for a comfy stay, rain or shine. Dive into a book, enjoy the hot tub (yes, even in the rain!), or visit local attractions like The Forbidden Corner for quirky indoor fun. Yorkshire's charm shines through, whatever the weather.

Can I get food delivered to my lodge?

Yes, many local eateries and supermarkets offer delivery services to lodges. For a special night in, try The Wensleydale Heifer for gourmet meals. Or, for a more casual bite, local takeaways often deliver to nearby lodges. Just check your location's delivery options beforehand.

Absolutely! Off-season visits mean fewer crowds and often better deals on lodges. The landscapes are stunning year-round, and you'll find cosy pubs like The Tan Hill Inn, Britain's highest, offering a warm welcome. Plus, winter brings its own magic with frosty walks and snug evenings by the fire.
