Howgill Lodge

Luxury lodge with unique decor, wood burning fire pit, hot tub and North Yorkshire Moors views, offers a rural retreat for some rest and relaxation.

The Quirky Tour

Stunning views from the lodges, each has a hot tub and firepit BBQ and seating on private terraces.

I loved that the interiors are colourful with high design and quality finish. This was a lovely surprise in such a rural setting.

The lodge is set on the Duke of Devonshire's Estate and enjoys a very special setting in the North Yorkshire Dales. Here on site you can head to the cafe of a morning to enjoy a barista style coffee with one of your favourite freshly baked pastries or take a 20 minute stroll along the River Wharfe, to not one but two traditional pubs in the village of Appletreewick. The site also offers the chance to get up close and personal with their family of alpacas!
