Howgill Lodge

Back to nature is easy in Herriot Country and Howgill Lodge offers the perfect getaway. Located between Bolton Abbey and Burnsall in the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales, Howgill Lodge offers an idyllic setting in the heart of Wharfedale on the Duke of Devonshire’s Chatsworth Estate. It’s a hidden gem close to the River Wharfe.

There’s a great choice of stays including owner tents, caravans and motorhomes with electric and non-electric pitches and luxurious holiday caravans that are equipped to the highest standards and perfect for a stress-free break.

Hot showers, a covered washing area, coin-operated washing machine and tumble dryer are all provided in the central amenity block and other showers and toilets in smaller units around the site cater for everyone on site.

There’s plenty of space for children’s play and exploration for hours, a large woodland area and separate field for dog walking. There are amazing views all around the site and the completely rural setting has many attractions nearby.

With beautiful walking and cycle routes, you are surrounded by beautiful scenery, a short walk will take you to the Craven Arms and a brief drive takes you to the famous Devonshire Arms.

Nearby, the market towns of Burnsall, Grassington (where Channel 5’s new All Creatures Great and Small series was filmed) and Skipton offer good opportunities for shopping, eating and drinking and if you want to make your trip extra special, the Brownie Barn, Barden is a delightful café and shop right next door to our campsite.

There’s no doubt that the stunning scenery and warm Yorkshire welcome will make your visit to Herriot Country richer when you stay at Howgill Lodge.

Satnav users beware! Your satnav may direct you along a very narrow road, please do not turn off the A59 until the roundabout at Bolton Abbey – see directions below.

From the A59 at Bolton Abbey Roundabout, take the B6160, signposted Burnsall. Continue through Bolton Abbey under the arch and about three miles on, you will reach Barden. Barden Tower, an old ruin is on your right. Turn right now signposted Appletreewick, down over the bridge and one mile on, just on the bend by the phone box, turn right onto Howgill Lane then carry on past the farm and we are next.
