As you may gather, Wharfe Lodge is in a row of lodges -on a residential and holiday park well above the Wharfedale road. The lodges are sensibly positioned so that even when using the balcony you are quite secluded.
There is some view of the fells from the balcony through the trees. In addition to the comments in the title, the lodge is very well located for easy drives to all parts of Wharfedale. The lovely little Littondale is just around the corner. The Gamekeeper, a one minute walk on site, serves good food at fair prices.
A Spacious & Well Equipped Chalet
An attractive and very well equipped chalet on a spacious site, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Very handy to have a genuine pub and restaurant, 'The Gamekeeper', located in the centre of the site and a well-stocked supermarket at the service station two minutes down the road. We also did a lot of exploring by car and on foot around Wharfedale and for this the chalet was ideally located. A very pleasant stay all round.
Loved it, great log cabin
Had a fantastic week, lovely location and great cabin. It's very quiet, perfect for our getaway. Some lovely walks from site around the disused quarry, made more spectacular with the snow. Also didnt have to drive far for more walks
Well equipped cosy cabin. We also used the leisure centre swimming pool. A little expensive but my 5 year old enjoyed it. Would definitely visit again.
Thank you so much for that lovely review of the lodge. I am glad it was everything that you were looking for and that you all had a great time. With regards the Leisure club/Spa this is run as a separate entity by Long Ashes Park Management and they set their own prices which we personally have no control over. It is however a luxurious experience and is a good option if you have children and you have a day when the weather isnt so good and most other properties listed wouldnt have access to such a facilitiy, certainly not easy walking distance from the property as this is. I understand they do offer weekly passes which work out more cost effective so may be worth considering. Aside from the Spa upstairs and the indoor pool/jacuzzi/steam room/sauna and gym, they also do tea/coffee and light meals and snacks in a casual stylish open plan area with the daily newspapers provided in the lobby. We look forward to welcoming you back again to Wharfe Lodge in the future. Thanks again.
Although the lodge was very cozy, I was a bit disappointed that there was no Christmas Trimmings up for New Year. It was clean and everything you need for self catering pots pans etc. The outside light onto the terrace didn't work and there was no plug to have a bath after a long winter walk. The park itself is beautiful with an excellent on site pub/ restaurant which serves excellent food.
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you found the log a cosy and clean experience. We will certainly take on board your thoughts regarding keeping festive decorations up into the New Year. Apologies for the bath plug not been readily available. Evidently it had been put on top of the vanity cupboard when we inspected the property but not obvious I agree after a long tiring walk.
