General

Badgers Retreat Holiday Park is a luxury holiday lodge park set in 26 acres of private grounds offering the ultimate peace and tranquility. Located between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North Yorkshire Moors, the region offers impressive landscapes which can easily be explored on foot or by bike.

Badgers Retreat as the name suggests is full of wildlife, not nightlife...the park has a wide array of nature’s finest including badgers, deer, rabbits, and a whole host of bird life too.

Safety is paramount that is why it has recently had all roads re-surfaced, new speed bumps installed as well as new road signage.

The new lodges now come with hot tubs located just outside the unit.
