Alan Rogers Review

Howgill Lodge is a traditional family park set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Arranged on a sloping hillside, the terraced pitches have fantastic views. It is a small park catering for the needs of walkers, tourers and people who like to just relax. The whole area is a haven for both experienced walkers or the casual rambler, without having to move your car. The 20 touring pitches at the upper part of the park are on hardstanding and have 10A electricity connections. A further 30 pitches on the lower part are mainly grass and for tents. Picnic tables and chairs are provided. There are three mobile homes available to rent.

Reception also houses a small shop which sells most of the basics including fresh foods. Pretty villages abound in the area, all with attractive inns and nearby Embsay has the Dales Railway with steam trains.


Heated toilet facilities are at the entrance, close to reception. Showers are large and adjustable. Fully equipped laundry room with four additional unisex showers. Outdoor washing lines are provided. Two small blocks housing WCs are lower down the site for the convenience of tent campers. Shop. No play area. Fishing licences are available from reception.
