Welcome to Howgill Lodge...
Located in Wharfedale, the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Howgill Lodge is the ideal place for a holiday to remember.
Owned and managed by the Foster family for many years, it offers self catering accommodation in luxury holiday homes, bed and breakfast accommodation in a converted 17th Century barn and a touring caravan park and camp site. The Foster family prides itself on offering the same high quality whichever accommodation you choose - B and B, caravan park or camp site.
Howgill Lodge is close to Bolton Abbey, Burnsall, Grassington, Pateley Bridge and Skipton and only a short journey from York, Harrogate, Leeds, Bradford and Halifax.
There is plenty of wonderful scenery, country houses, castles and market towns to visit and enjoy.
Howgill Lodge and The Environment
At Howgill Lodge we care about our environment, and are constantly looking at ways to minimise our impact on it and to encourage wildlife. Here are some of the ways in which we try to do this;
We have bird boxes all around the park. We have planted flowers and shrubs to encourage birds, butterflies and insects, we leave some areas of the park uncut on purpose to encourage the wildlife. We now have solar panels for water heating and lighting, with more to follow.
We have recently installed an eco friendly sewage system and reed bed. To help support this we insist on the use of formaldehyde free toilet chemicals on site.
We encourage our visitors to leave their cars and walk or use public transport as much as possible, and we try to discourage people from bringing more than one car onto site via our charging policy.
We do not allow electric heating in tents or awnings as we feel this is rather wasteful of energy.
Wherever possible we try to source our products locally, and suggest local small businesses for anything we cannot supply. We have recycling points situated throughout the park to encourage people to do their bit too!
We look forward to seeing you ...
"This has been the best couple of days we've spent in a long time. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality we will certainly be back."
