The Park

Set in 75 acres with a total of 50 lodges, Heron Lakes is one of the lowest density parks in the U.K. with the added advantage that we can accommodate lodges up to 65 x 22ft.

Ideally located Heron Lakes is within easy road and rail links being just 4 miles from the historic market town of Beverley and there are two airports under two hours drive away.

With advice from the Forestry Commission we have planted in excess of 40,000 trees of all varieties and the park has been sympathetically designed to support and encourage wildlife and we are pleased to be seeing many different species including deer, foxes, badgers, rabbit, hare and many different types of birds.

We would encourage you to visit to Heron Lakes Holiday Lodge Park, the only way you can truly appreciate the stunning surroundings and luxury lodges.

Our friendly and welcoming team are always on hand to help with any questions you may have.

For the benefit of our holiday lodge owners and guests we try to restrict feeding all wildlife to designated areas around the park. Heron Lakes would like to thank you for not feeding outside these areas.

A new membership and accreditation scheme for wildlife-friendly businesses

Launching in March 2012, the Puffin Mark is a membership and accreditation scheme for businesses working in the 'visitor economy' in the Yorkshire Nature Triangle.

You can be sure that we have committed to a set of guidelines that are intended to help you, the visitor or local resident alike, to enjoy your visit and make the most of our magnificent wildlife here.

Visitor and business benefits

The Puffin Mark will enable you, the visitor, to be assured that the business that you are considering, be it serviced accommodation, self catering, tour guide, restaurant, pub, or cycle hire has a shared passion for nature and the outdoors.

The Puffin Mark was created in response to a demand from businesses who understand that the Yorkshire Nature Triangle has something special to offer the visitor who wants to see animals like otters, kingfishers, water voles, gannets and guillemots in their natural habitats. These businesses are intensely proud of the natural heritage of eastern Yorkshire and are keen to pass on their local knowledge to you.

As far as wildlife goes, this can be an advantage - many species, like the barn owl and the otter, have continued to thrive here, while they have been threatened in the rest of the country.

As far as the economy is concerned though, being off the map has not been to our advantage, and this is where the Yorkshire Nature Triangle combines a wealth of wildlife with wealth creation for local communities. By staying in the area, visitors will bring valuable income to small businesses and therefore benefits to their communities.

Wildlife benefits

There is a wealth of wonderful wildlife in East Yorkshire which we are working hard to protect. We hope to inspire people to explore it, enjoy it, and feel the benefits that contact with nature can bring. Heron Lakes know whatever time of the year you come, you will see and experience an array of wonderful wildlife.
