Award winning Woodclose Park is well laid out in an area of natural beauty just ten minutes from the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and just a short drive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Lake District National Park. Woodclose Park is set within nine acres, the outlying fields provide habitats for a rich variety of animals, birds, flora and fauna. This is a tranquil area providing a very special location for dog friendly holidays with a number of serviced hard-standing touring pitches, a variety of Glamping Pods and a self-catering holiday flat. Woodclose Park also has an exclusive Holiday Home and lodge development if you wish to stay a little longer. Walking, cycling, golf and fishing are on the doorstep and just a short walk to award winning restaurants, pubs and tea rooms in Kirkby Lonsdale.
Woodclose Park is a quiet and serene place, set within a slight hollow leading down to the spectacular Devil’s Bridge and the picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. The town is steeped in history with a 13th century charter for fairs, a school dating back to Elizabeth I and it even warrants a mention in the Doomsday Book of 1086.
It is not hard to see why this landscape has inspired famous writers and artists with its cluster of speciality shops, 17th and 18th century Inns, a fine Norman Church as well as the famous Devil’s Bridge.
John Ruskin penned these words some hundred years ago about the valley and these ring true to this day:
"...the valley of the Lune at Kirkby Lonsdale is one of the loveliest scenes in England, therefore in the world. Whatever moorland, hill and sweet river, and English forest foliage can be at their best is gathered there; and chiefly seen from the steep bank, which falls to the streamside from the upper part of the town itself. There a path leads from the churchyard, out of which Turner made his drawing of the valley, along the brow of the wooded bank to open downs beyond - I do not know in all my own country, still less in France and Italy, a place more naturally divine, or a more priceless possession...."
