A short (or long) break at White Willow Lodge in Nidderdale is the perfect way to relax and unwind. Fabulous views, five-star interiors and a six-seater hot tub all make this Nordic-style luxury lodge near Harrogate rather special.
Take a look at some of the things we love about White Willow Lodge
1. A touch of Hygge cosiness
The Scandinavians know a thing or two about keeping things cosy. White Willow Lodge has taken some ‘Hygge’ inspiration with a Nordic feel throughout.
Hygge means a feeling of cosiness and comfortable conviviality and that’s exactly how you’ll feel at this luxury Nidderdale Lodge. With fur throws and a toasty wood burner you’ll feel lovely and warm even when the weather gets cold.
2. Enjoy some peace and quiet
If you crave the sound of silence, broken only by the sound of birds chirping and the gentle trickle of a stream, then a visit to White Willow Lodge is heavenly.
Take a seat on the decking outside the property (or bag your spot in the hot tub) and you’ll instantly feel relaxed. It’s the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of modern life. The only trouble is that you won’t want to get back to it!
3. Soak in the views from the hot tub
You can, quite literally, soak in the stunning views of the Washburn Valley from the six-seater hot tub at White Willow Lodge.
The view is completely unspoilt so you can enjoy a beautiful vista of woodland and moorland scenery as you relax in the bubbles. Heavenly, especially with a little glass of something bubbly.
4. The call of nature
The surrounding Nidderdale woodland is a haven for local wildlife. As well as the owner's friendly sheep you can see roe deer, grouse, and a vast array of birds chirping merrily.
Take along a pair of binoculars and see what you can spot. There’s very little light pollution here so you could even try your hand at a bit of stargazing.
5. A five-star woodland lodge
White Willow Lodge was designed by its architect owners and no expense has been spared on creating this luxury lodge. From the finest quality wood on the outside to a top spec finish inside, everything in this property is five-star and fabulous.
The star of the show, not counting the views from the hot tub, is the stunning master bedroom. The huge room includes a super king-sized bed, freestanding bath, walk-in monsoon shower and private decked area with glass balcony. It’s the perfect woodland lodge to escape to!
6. Go exploring in Nidderdale
White Willow Lodge is set in five acres of private land in gorgeous Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With wooded areas, a stream and even a packhorse bridge it’s the perfect place to go exploring. Kids will love going for a paddle and seeing what they can find.
There’s also miles of woodland and moorland walks to try with stunning scenery and a reservoir or two. This part of Yorkshire really is a hidden gem and all just 20 minutes from Harrogate.
White Willow Lodge is available to book for short breaks and holidays through Gorgeous Cottages. It’s one of a hand-picked collection of the finest holiday cottages in Yorkshire.
