"Explore the wild and rolling Yorkshire Dales with this luxurious lodge as your base."
Unleash your inner Cathy and Heathcliff and fall in love all over again on this rural getaway in the eerily beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Get away from your hectic life and relax in a room which brings the moors to your door with its sustainably sourced, luxury interiors including a log fireplace and solid wood flooring. Take a tour of the dales before returning to relax in your own state-of-the-art lodge equipped with Kingsize beds and a flat screen television. It's the perfect chance to discover the wild beauty of the iconic Yorkshire Dales - all from the comfort of a decadent lodge.
Explore the surrounding landscape before returning to warm up and cosy on down in front of a wood-burning stone fireplace. Head to The Coach House at Middleton Lodge for afternoon tea, then get a breath of fresh air as you explore the gorgeous walking trails that scatter 55 acres of Swaledale countryside. Or if hiking across the dales isn’t for you, then simply enjoy the views from the comfort of your lodge, courtesy of its floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a literature fanatic, you won’t be disappointed with this hidden gem in the heart of the rugged Yorkshire moors.
What We Love
Relax by Roaring Fires: Return after breezy walks across the Yorkshire countryside and warm up in front of a roaring log fire. Relax with a cup of classic Yorkshire tea and a board game, and feel perfectly at home.
Be the King of the Castle: Get the most out of your trip to Yorkshire with a trip to Richmond, a market town full of history. Taste Richmond’s vibrant past with a visit to the castle, and even get spooked on a guided ghost-walk!
Light up Your Life: Return to nature from the comfort of your personal lodge. Its glass walls look out on picturesque woodland and meadow views; wake to the natural light and gather the family together to spot the early rising rabbits!
What makes this experience sustainable?
Natural Retreats pride themselves on offering the balance between luxury and sustainability. Each of their properties is developed to fit in with both the surrounding natural landscape and ecological constraints. Using clever design, each property also attempts to maximise natural light and warmth in order to minimise energy consumption. Each of Natural Retreats' destinations offers local produce on the doorstep, as well as locally sourced furniture and fittings, in order to support local communities and economies.
The Natural Retreats residences are constructed (in part) using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) sourced timber, meaning the use of concrete is minimal. They also have selected a super-efficient dual rate domestic hot water and heating system, which is able to utilise the extra heat from gases that would otherwise be wasted. Furthermore, to meet the company’s energy efficiency targets, each development is insulated to a higher standard than current building regulations. Currently, the practice is to use reconstituted glass fibre for wall cavity insulation. It is generally regarded to be next to sheep’s wool in thermal capacity!
