We are always striving to improve and have been busy working on the facilities we offer to make staying here more comfortable and enjoyable.
Whilst it’s great to have a number of large buildings and an extensive site it certainly takes some maintaining and can be complicated to improve – especially within the confines of a conservation area in a national park with listed buildings onsite!
As the Lodge had an extensive refurbishment a couple of years ago we have targeted our accommodation improvements on the Farm House, our grade 2 listed accommodation building. Developments include:
- Secondary glazing being fitted to the majority of windows – improving the energy efficiency of the building and helping to keep it warmer during the colder months.
- New curtains and carpet in the majority of rooms – updating and replacing that was needed.
- Replacing all bunk beds with new bigger ones – more suitable for visiting adults as well as children.
- Improved TV reception – now all free to view channels are available.
Improvements to other areas include:
- Resurfacing the back driveway and the path from reception to the accommodation buildings – no more pot holes and an easier journey with wheelie suitcases for those who arrive by coach at the bottom of the drive.
- Installing a retractable partition wall in the Wyedale room – more flexibility for groups.
- Secondary glazing in the Wyedale room – improving energy efficiency and sound insulation.
- Creating a new bike store – Easier for groups to get bikes in and out.
- Revamped problem solving store – easier access for visiting groups.
