This was my third visit here with my partner and family, having visited in April 2013 and July 2012. All visits were lovely. Hot tub is an excellent feature and the lodges are only a 10 minute walk into Ripon. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, the main ones being The Water Rat pub and the Golden Lion pub. There are only 8 lodges on site so it's lovely and peaceful. Others staying at the same time had their dog with them so pets are allowed! Only drawback back is the shrubs and trees could do with being cut back but, that didn't bother us really! Owner is lovely, already planning our return!
