Ditch The Desk and Head For The Dales

We've all been there - sat at your desk, struggling with the 9-5 routine and dreaming of distant lands where you can shrug off your worries and truly get back to nature. Natural Retreats know that nothing quite compares to the pull of a luxurious and thoroughly indulgent mini-break, so we're here to help!

Our cosy, log-fire clad luxury lodges in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales are nestled into one of the most picturesque valleys around. Each lodge boasts privacy, expansive wooden deck and a dreamy open-plan interior with deep, magical forests and wide open meadows bordering the surroundings. Whether dreaming of a long weekend walking the countless country trails, a mid-week stay completing a foodie pilgrimage to the local restaurants and kitsch cafes in Richmond, or a week long summer escape with the whole family in tow - Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales is perfect for a multitude of holiday needs.

We caught up with Roxsann, who recently enjoyed a weekend mini-break to the Yorkshire Dales. We asked her...

Was this your first stay with us?
No, it's actually my second visit. Myself and my partner stayed last November after finding Natural Retreats online. Also my parents stayed in January. A family of Natural Retreats fans!

Which 3 activities would you recommend to guests staying in the Yorkshire Dales?
The main benefit of being in the Yorkshire Dales is the fresh air! We really enjoyed walking through the fields into Richmond town centre, the views were breathtaking (so were the uphill walks) next time we would definitely get some bikes and go further afield but the most important activity I would recommend is relaxing. It's the perfect place to put your feet up and enjoy some peace and quiet.

What was your favourite feature about the lodge?
My favourite feature(s) of the lodge were the floor to ceiling windows in the main room, it felt really light and airy, plus the log fire. Sat in front of the burning fire with a hot chocolate and nature on your doorstep was heavenly. We really had an amazing time and will forever be coming back to stay! (Maybe next time with the children (maybe!)).
