  • "I thought that maybe a coffee table would come in handy"

  • "Lovely property on a very quiet site."

    Enjoyed seeing the lambs, rabbits, pheasants and a couple of deer around the site. Good location with local shops 5 minutes away and Richmond 10 minutes. Property was well equipped with all the home from home comforts (the only thing missing was some egg cups and a toast rack). We didn’t get to use the hot tub due to the weather, but it could do with being made a little more private. Overall it was a good place to stay and we would recommend. Thank you.

  • "The lodge was beautiful!"

    The retreat was very quiet and peaceful. The beds were incredibly comfortable and when we arrived there was facilities to make a brew and settle in. First impressions were great! The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is we could have done with bin bags and toilet roll. The internet and TV in the main living area worked intermittently and the TV in the bedroom I couldn't get to work at all but these are only minor things. The owner was friendly and communication was good. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others for sure!

  • "Lovely place and communication great."

    Hot tub was cold on arrival so first night we couldn't use it. Its also not very private with viewings going on above looking down. The extractor hood didn't work. I did notice there were a lot of cobwebs in the property which was mentioned on another review. The area has nothing. You can't safely walk to a pub. So of you want absolutely nothing then its good. We got a little bored. Beds comfy. WiFi good. Hottub nice once hot. Just dropped 2 stars for the location and cobwebs.

    Warm and clean with plenty of space for four. Close to Richmond. Extremely quiet. Lovely hot tub Immaculately kept site.

  • "A lovely, well presented property, very clean and comfortable."

    Being older people with a dog we found it impossible to access the dog walking fields up the very steep, wet, grass banking. It would be wonderful if the site had some graduated paths up the bankings. With the site being on a busy single track lane, we couldn't walk anywhere off site either. We visited some lovely places in the area when we did drive out, but anyone without transport would be very isolated.

  • "Accomodation was just as advertised."

    Instuctions were clear and the standard was excellent. The verandah is fully enclosed which is useful for dogs/young children. We made use of the hot tub which was great The park itself is quiet and the adjacent field is perfect for dogs. 2 very minor comments - several bulbs in the kitchen/outside area were not working. Ideally would have appreciated access from 4.00pm

    Weather not the best so didn’t really benefit with the hot tub, but that is England

  • "6 Badgers retreat was a home from home warm, clean and comfortable with everything provided that one would need."

    The only downside was the cleanliness of the outside decking due to thick cobwebs particularly around the gate and hot tub. We would have been happy to see to this but there was not an outside brush this however would not stop us from staying there again.

  • "Lovely lodge, nicely furnished."

    The dressing table area in the main bedroom was a bit worse for wear. There was everything you could possibly need. The only thing that was disappointing was that the hot tub was not very warm. After a while I was cold and with the temperature not being very good outside it was not as enjoyable as I would have liked.

    Lovely lodge and hot tub with plenty of places to visit nearby. Lots of shops just up the road including Aldi where we did our main shop. Also quite a few takeaways. Loved the welcome pack we received on arrival, nice touch. Thank you so much.

  • "Another great week at this lovely lodge[3rd visit] but i must say that now new lodges have been placed directly behind no 6 that a full screen is needed around the hot tub because when the new lodges are occupied they will have a birds eye view of anyone using the hot tub at no6."

    The fridge door needs attention and with no6 being pet friendly a more powerful vacuun cleaner is needed.we would love to return if the privacy issue around the hot tub is addressed

    Hi Barbara Thank you for the feedback. We have addressed the privacy around the hot tub, although the lodges at the top of the hill aren’t occupied yet Thank you for your feedback once again Hopefully we will welcome you again soon Tony Property Owner

The property

Resting just a short distance away from the bustling town of Richmond and a stone’s throw away from the Yorkshire Dales National Park is this wooden lodge, 6 Badgers Retreat.

With its wonderful North Yorkshire location, this lodge is perfect for couples, friends and families to come together to enjoy a tranquil oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Inside, be welcomed into an open-plan living room boasting a contemporary interior design and everything you could possibly need to enjoy a self-catering experience.

Catering to your culinary delights, the kitchen comes with a range of quality appliances and the dining table makes a social spot for you to gather to toast to a wonderful holiday to Yorkshire and tuck into a home-cooked dish.

After dinner, relax into your evening by flicking on the electric fire and browse through the TV channels, whilst sunk into the plush sofa.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, catch your rest within one of the two bedrooms, consisting of a double bedroom with an en-suite and an additional double bedroom, served by a family bathroom, boasting a shower over bath, basin and WC.

During a balmy afternoon, head out onto the decking surrounding this lodge and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, whilst your canine companions stretch their legs.

Explore your surroundings by taking a drive into the nearby town of Richmond, boasting a stunning Norman castle, Georgian architecture, a large cobbled market place, with museums and monuments, accompanied by a large selection of places to eat and drink.

Enjoy the Castle Walk to immerse yourself in its history, or walk alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there is the glorious North Yorkshire National Park, home to a plethora of walking opportunities and other nearby tourist spots include Barnard Castle and Leyburn, a beautiful market town with a wide array of pubs and restaurants.

Middleham is also close by, home to the castle, which was once King Richards III’s childhood home and is rich in horse racing heritage.

If you are feeling adventurous, why not travel slightly further afield to the bustling town of Harrogate or spend the day in the stunning city of York.

6 Badgers Retreat is that perfect lodge for that long-awaited getaway with loved ones.

About the location


Barnard Castle 10 miles; Leyburn 12 miles.

Situated at the entrance to Swaledale, the ancient market town of Richmond stands on a prominent hilltop site to the north of the River Swale. Its cobbled streets and narrow alleys or 'wynds' enshrine over nine centuries of busy history and unique character. The town grew up around its castle, a Norman fortress dating back to 1071, famously situated high above the river - indeed the name Richmond is derived from 'Riche-mont' meaning 'strong hill'. Today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed such as the Castle Walk - a dramatic terrace walk beneath the castle walls - or alternatively walk alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls to enjoy. Within the town, narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled Market Place (which has a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market) and there are numerous shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. The town flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries and the resulting elegant Georgian architecture lines many of the old streets. The Georgian Theatre is one of the oldest surviving theatres in the country with visitors enjoying its regular productions all year round.
