Woodhouse Farm has been designed to help you enjoy the Great British countryside and is home to a plethora of flora and fauna.

We continually strive to protect and enhance our natural environment, here in our special corner of the Yorkshire Dales. There’s plenty of things to look out for during your stay including rabbits, deer, pheasants, squirrels, ducks, geese, water hens, bees and lots of mini beasts. Why not visit our and bug hotel, located up at the large fishing lake?

We are constantly looking at what we can do to encourage nature, including planting more trees, hedgerows and wild flowers and letting our meadows grow wild where we can. We also generate all the heating and hot water for the Parks’ facilities using biomass fuel, thereby minimising our carbon footprint.

We’re proud to have been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award for the work we’ve done to protect and enhance our natural environment.

The David Bellamy Conservation Awards are one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK and champion holiday parks that continually work to protect and enhance the environment. Three levels of excellence can be achieved – Gold, Silver and Bronze. Each holiday park is regularly inspected with assessors looking at how a holiday park:

  • Manages their land as a haven for wildlife
  • Reduces their resources such as energy, water, etc
  • Reduces, reuses and recycles any wastes
  • Supports their local communities

We’re also a BBKA Honey Bee Friendly Park. This means we have committed to doing whatever we can to provide the forage plants that bees need, to provide homes for bees and to spread the word about bee conservation.
