About Ribblesdale Lodges
If you're looking for something extra special then this stunning cluster of luxury lodges set in the grounds of the impressive and historic thousand acre Gisburn park Estate are the perfect choice for you. The location in the heart of the Ribble Valley, inspiration for Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a gateway to exploring the magnificent Yorkshire Dales.

Each lodge has been stylishly designed with every home comfort in mind, effortlessly blending contemporary design with rural charm and nestled within prize winning gardens and water features. Enjoy your own private decking area with a sumptuous outdoor hot tub or take advantage of the on site massage therapist to really unwind. For those of you looking for something more energetic, the private cycle paths and walking trails through the Estate along the Ribble River are perfect.

Nearby Pendle Hill offers a challenge to keen walkers who can reward themselves afterwards at the famous Assheton Arms in Downham village, the setting of the BBC's Born and Breed drama.

Just a ten minute walk through the Estate from your lodge you'll discover the stunning market village of Gisburn, with a delightful pub, award winning Italian restaurant and quaint shops selling local organic produce. The Lancashire coastline, numerous market towns (Clitheroe, Skipton and Settle, all 10 mins), the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Park are all within easy reach.

Extra special touches
Taste the luxury of delicious, freshly prepared food delivered straight to your door - including Champagne, strawberries and clotted cream as the perfect accompaniment to romantic evenings in the hot tub! Add an extra personal touch to a special occasion with celebratory balloons/banners ready in-lodge for your arrival, and top the surprise with a sweet treat from our personalised cake service. Or simply indulge in the opulence of rose petals scattered on your bed, waffle bathrobe hire†, Millar Harris scented candles and toiletries, complimentary King Henry VI water and a late 12-noon† checkout... A full concierge service provides great local advice and friendly assistance with booking days out. Relaxing massages can be enjoyed on site. Cycle hire is also available. †Subject to availability.

Accommodation was brilliant so clean and of high standard we were that happy we didn't venture out for any meals!!!

  • 5 - I would definitely recommend this site. We stayed in the Wentworth Lodge it was very clean the furnishings were excellent quality and modern everything about it was lovely the garden wasn't quite finished but made no difference as it had a patio area. It was a lovely relaxing weekend just what we wanted and wasn't to far away from us in Sheffield. The cafe on the site was very warm and welcoming and nice food.
    Mrs S, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, 4th Mar 2011
  • 6 - I would highly recommend Ribblesdale Park for its quality lodges with hot tubs and its perfect location on the edge of the Dales. It offers a very friendly reception/cafe staffed by very friendly staff. It also offers a massage service that takes place in the comfort of your own lodge. The site itself is only a short stroll into the centre of Gisburn where the White Bull pub and an Italian restaurant can be found both of which are very nice.
    Mr G, York, North Yorkshire, 4th Mar 2011
  • 7 - Great park very peaceful in beautiful countryside close to good pubs and walks.

  • 8 - Very quiet and peaceful and a lovely secluded hot tub.
    Mrs P, Bury, Lancashire, 21st Feb 2011
  • 9 - The standard of the accommodation is excellent. I took our dog and was prepared for a lesser quality accommodation but I was very pleasantly surprised. There was no sign of previous dogs ever staying there. The whole place from the cabin to the grounds was wonderful and we will be returning.
    Mrs F, Grimsby, South Humberside, 21st Feb 2011
  • 10 - A relaxing break in scenic surroundings with plenty to do on the doorstep.
    Ms O, Hebburn, Tyne And Wear, 21st Feb 2011
  • 11 - Very relaxing enjoyable holiday worth every penny we spent. Park staff very helpful and pleasant. Looking forward to our next one will be booking again soon.
    Mrs D, Wirral, Merseyside, 21st Feb 2011
  • 12 - The accommodation is a home from home our lodge had dishwasher washing machine tumble dryer along with all mod cons. The hot tub was a big hit with the whole family great to go in once the kids were in bed! The site is well maintained and Hindelinis coffee shop is a must for those who love hot chocolate with the works. The staff on site are really friendly and helpful. The Calf's Head in Worston is excellent (not for the faint hearted) portions are large so go hungry! Lots to see and do if you want or you can just chill all day. Excellent holiday we will be going back again!
    Mr H, Ormskirk, Lancashire, 21st Feb 2011
