These luxury lodges were brand new in 2009 and are ideal for those seeking a break away in a relaxed and picturesque environment. The park has a wonderful location just a short drive from the bustling market town of Thirsk and the historic city of York is also close by.

As the name would suggest the lodges have been designed around impressive and well stocked fishing lakes catering for all ages and abilities. The park also has a superb new contemporary bar and restaurant which also offers occasional weekend light entertainment. The food served in the restaurant is modern and fresh with local produce featuring strongly. 

There is also plenty to see and do in the local area with cathedral cities of York and Ripon both within easy reach. If its a day on the coast you're looking for then the popular resorts of Scarborough and Whitby can be reached in just over an hour taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery and picture postcard villages en route.

The Yorkshire moors and dales can also be reached in under and hour and offer the perfect environment for enjoying outdoor pursuits. Watersports, climbing and gliding are available as well as the more traditional walking and cycling.

There are four types of lodge to choose from at Woodland Lakes. All were brand new in 2009 and are very well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The Chestnut Lodge is a good choice for a romantic break and has one bedroom and an outdoor hot tub. The Birch Lodge is larger and perfect for families sleeping up to 6.

Woodland Lakes Lodges Reviews

Charlotte Thwates
Woodland Lakes Lodges are in a good place if you want to do some siteseeing in yorkshire. The park itself was really peaceful, no kids running around or noisy groups when we were there. seemed to be mostly couples or small families with babies. People there just to relax. The bar on the park serves the most amazing food and the service was good but not in your face. Our lodge had smashing views over the woods and was very modern with a better kitchen than i have at home.

Lovely large well equipped lodge, fantastic views over the water but lacked a little tlc with the cleanliness, skirting boards really dusty and windows needed cleaning to see through them properly, comfortable beds and lovely clean linen. Quiet and relaxing.

We had a fantastic break at the woodlands. 2 Adults 2 kids (2 and 6) plus a puppy. The lodge was brilliant, with modern decor throughout, and the grounds are lovely. We walked our puppy numerous times of the day and she loved it also. The staff are really helpful. We asked for a bed to be removed to allow us to fit a travel cot in, which was removed instantly. We noticed that there wasn't a DVD player, so on our way our in the afternoon of the day we arrived I asked the reception and a DVD player was put in prior to our return. We ate at the Vale of York pub just up the road, and the food was brilliant and bar maid and locals were very friendly and dogs were allowed. We visited York one day, which took about 30 mins to the park and ride, which I must recommend. We visited Ripon market and Harrogate on another day. Overall we had a brilliant stay, and we will be looking to book again for the same time next year.

Lovely clean lodge with a great view of the water. Hot tub is amazing. The Manhattan on site bar and restaurant sells lovely food which is cheap but food quality was a lot better than we expected we ate a few times there due to the quality of the food. All the staff onsite was really friendly we will definitely be coming back to this site again.
Mark
Brilliant holiday
Chris
Always a pleasure coming here, great place with friendly helpful staff.
DENISE
Excellent value for money. Lodge was well equipped and staff very friendly. Location fantastic - lots of places within easy walking or driving distance.
Paul
Fantastic place, amazing staff. Can not fault it at all. If you are looking for a nice little relaxing, quiet getaway I would highly recommend. Spa dressing gowns & slippers & towels were provided and the pint of milk & loaf of bread & coffee & biscuits etc that was also provided for our arrival was a nice little touch. Hot tubs are fantastic. The place is very clean & the owners go above & beyond if you need help with anything. Even the ducks came up to our door to say hi. Lots of lakes on site if your into fishing and there is plenty to do in the local area if you have children. We visited the bird of prey centre & a near by farm but there was also a go outdoors activity place a short drive away too that had quad bikes & sedgeways etc if your into that kinda thing. Plenty of dog friendly pubs near by if you’d like to eat out & takeaway numbers are provided if you don’t feel like cooking & want to order in food. Will definitely be booking again. 10/10.
Johann
Relaxing all I want will and do use it again

Fun Days Out near Woodland Lakes Lodges

Lightwater Valley - about 7 Miles
Situated in the Ripon area of North Yorkshire this popular theme park makes a fantastic day out for the whole family.  The more daring will love the big and thrilling rides such as Raptor Attack, The Ultimate and Trauma Tower.  For the little ones there are some excellent attractions such as Flying Camels, Dodgems and a Magic Wheel.  Toddlers will like the Dragon Boats and the Lightwater Express amongst other things. There are over 40 rides and attractions in total and we think this is excellent value for money too.  If you book your tickets in advance online you can save even more money and beat the queues.
Big Sheep - about 8 Miles
This is a recommended day out for families with young children visiting the Bedale area of Yorkshire.  Visit the farm and receive a warm welcome as well as a guided tour.  You will have the chance to bottle feed the lambs, bath a pig and handle some of the smaller animals.  Kids will love the big sandpit and the outdoor play area. There is also a cafe and indoor play area for when the weather is not on your side.
Fountains Abbey - about 10 Miles
This is an outstanding world heritage site located close to Ripon in the North Yorkshire area. Nature lovers will be in their element with an abundance of wide open spaces to explore and there are special guided tours for families.  Some of the highlights may include seeing wild deer and bats during your visit.  The grounds are fantastic to wander round but there is also an Elizabethan Mansion, Victorian Church, Georgian Water Garden and the finest example of Cistercian Abbey ruins in the country - Well worth a visit!
Yorkshire Lavender - about 17 Miles
Yorkshire Lavender is an amazing award winning attraction offering breathtaking panoramic views of York, a Café, Plant Nursery and Lavender Gardens. The 60 acre site is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is an excellent choice for a day trip. The onsite shops sells Lavender products such as bath and body treats, skincare, medicine and herbal remedies.
