Flowery Dell Luxury Pine Lodges/Log Cabins, near Richmond in the Yorkshire Dales, is the perfect place for Scandinavian style woodland serenity, without leaving the UK. The small family run site is set in a peaceful valley, though civilisation is only five minutes away and offers a great luxury alternative to Pet Friendly Yorkshire Dales Holiday Cottages.
The lodges are centrally heated and fully equipped; most have south-facing enclosed balconies for balmy summer evenings - meaning you and your dog can enjoy some alfresco dining.
There is lots of wildlife to interest you both: rabbits and birds abound and you can expect occasional visits from foxes, badgers and deer. A tennis ball's throw from the doorstep is Hudswell Woods, a National Trust property that’s doggie heaven, with paths criss-crossing and leading down to the River Swale, where your four-legged friends can enjoy a dip!
Walking books are in all lodges featuring walks to suit all dogs - from the golden oldie who likes a little stroll, to the energetic who like to take their owners on serious walkies. There is a Dog exercise area near Hazel, Hawthorn & Maple & short walks around the site as well as a circular walk taking in a short stretch along Hudswell Lane. There are several longer walks from Flowery Dell including Hudswell Woods & the Drummer Boy Walk.
We understand how hard it can be to find good quality Yorkshire Dales accommodation that welcomes your whole family and your dogs. That’s why we’re keen to make Flowery Dell Lodges in Yorkshire as dog friendly as possible. We also understand why many accommodation owners say no dogs! We’re determined not to punish the considerate majority of dog owners for the behaviour of the few. To ensure we all get along for years to come, we thought it might be helpful to outline some house rules for our doggy guests and also to remind you of some useful tips for a safe and happy holiday.
It’s important to point out that taking a dog friendly holiday does not mean taking a holiday from your responsibilities as a dog owner.
