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. The lodge has two storeys making it very spacious and it also has a balcony where you can enjoy stunning views and a hot tub. The Poplar lodge is also two storey and very contemporary in design.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. The only issue was the gravel path to the lodge which proved difficult to push a wheelchair along

Would certainly go again, just hoping this time the hot tub works for the duration of our stay as this was the only thing that spoilt it for us.

The lodge is absolutely gorgeous. The decor is so modern and stylish yet appears quite old to look at. The facilities are amazing inside the lodge and it just does not disappoint. Absolutely loved it.

Lovely holiday at a very reasonable price for a lodge with a hot tub.

Beautiful place to stay our 3rd time will be back again l.
Christine
Had a fabulous weekend, accommodation was immaculate, had 1 slight problem with the shower but after reporting it was sorted within 20 mins, can not get better than that
Rachel
Me and my partner stayed here for a long weekend at the end of April and it was absolutely gorgeous!! Everything from the lodge, to the staff, and the site itself was just fabulous. On arriving the staff at reception were so lovely and very helpful. Going in to our lodge we were absolutely blown away. The way the lodge is set out, the decor, everything is just gorgeous!! We even got a welcome pack with washing up liquid and sponges, bin bags, even a free bottle of milk and fresh bread!! The value for money in this place is just amazing. It was the best relaxing lodge holiday we have ever had. The hot tub was gorgeous and even though we were only there for 3 nights it felt like so much longer. The only slight downside is that if you wish to explore the surrounding area you have to drive, therefore can’t have an alcoholic drink while you’re out but that didn’t really affect our holiday as we just enjoyed a drink in the lodge. We will definitely be returning.
Megan
Really enjoyed our stay, had everything we could have needed. Will definitely be returning!
Millie

Hannah
2nd visit, loved the lodge, the lakes and facilities and the staff were great. Def recommend to others and planning on returning!
Shanice
Fantastic little get away for me and my boyfriend to just relax! It was perfect for this and not too far from different day trips out! I'll be bringing my family next time!
Patrick
Lovely site, with lakes surrounding it well signed for a quick walk while you're they're. North Yorkshire moors pretty close too (driving) and even whitby at just over an hour. The lodge was modern and we'll equipped - I have to mention we didn't have a microwave though. The hot tub was great and a good size and was very private despite the lodges being side by side. The shower had jets and multiple settings and a built in radio which was something special too.

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.
