Riverdale Lodges

Riverdale Lodges in North Yorkshire

Dog Friendly Lodges in the Yorkshire Dales
Riverdale Lodges, Ripon, offer 4 dog friendly self catering lodges in the foothills of the Yorkshire Dales which each sleep up to 6 guests.

All our Lodges offer true 5 star luxury in the middle of unspoiled nature, right on the riverbank.

We don't just accept dogs at Riverdale, we LOVE it when you bring your dog(s), and that makes all the difference in how welcome you will feel! Choose any of our Lodges, as we are dog-friendly through and through and go the extra mile to make sure your dog enjoys the perfect holiday too!

Many guests have told us that Riverdale can best be described as "Dogs' Paradise" and that we are "the most dog-friendly place they've ever stayed". Your dog will have the time of his life!

All 4 lodges offer generous living space for a family of 6, with an impressive outdoor space as a bonus. The open plan kitchen is equipped to the highest standards with a large kitchen island and all the appliances you can imagine, all in standard full-size versions.

The lounge area is light, spacious and cosy with 2 large sofas focusing on the wide-screen smart TV and the log burner (Curlew Lodge) or electric log fire. Plenty of space there for your dog beds too!

The dining area offers a large family dining table, overlooking the terrace.

The master double bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and the other 2 bedrooms share the family bathroom. All bedrooms have large floor-to-ceiling mirrored wardrobes and their own smart TV!

Outside, the safely enclosed and spacious wooden decking offers another 6-seater dining table with recliner chairs, as well as two lazy zero-gravity recliners. The views from the terrace of every lodge are all slightly different!

But even more important than the 5 Star luxury indoors and outside, are all the little touches, making you feel right at home, with everything you and your dogs need, already there, waiting for you on arrival. We call it our 5 Star Self-Catering-Plus Formula: you only need to bring your toothbrush and your PJ's, and we've thought of everything else! And you can check it on the inventory list (See Website).

Our lodges are also extremely well suited for couples who like their space and luxury, and don't want to be limited to the smaller basic kitchen and narrow living space that you would find in 2- or 4-berth accommodation. But, obviously, you will not need all 3 bedrooms, so have a look at the Just-Two Offer with a discount compensating for that!
