This is a spacious outdoor glamping venue and you will be staying in our self catering log cabin, which has had an amazing Channel 5 makeover.

The log cabin and garden has an Alice in Wonderland theme and you can wander through the gardens and see the various sculptures and gateway to the secret garden. Lewis Caroll's father spent 16 years in Ripon so you'll see lots of references to his work in the area. You can read more at

We have 200 metres of free fishing rights on our land and for a small charge (about £6) day tickets are available from many shops to be able to fish on Ripon Piscatorial water, which covers approximately 12 miles of the River Ure.

We have a barbecue area next to the river and tranquil places to sit and reflect. Or you can sit at the Tea Party table next to the folly to enjoy your meals.

I surprised my partner with a weekend away for his birthday and what a treat it was! This places is a lovely get away, the cabin is very cute and all the added touches go a long way. Breakfast was lovely every morning and Angela also organised a little basket of treats on arrival for the birthday boy! The town was only a 10 minute walk and had lots of pubs and places to eat, also a cute little independent cinema too. We were kept warm with plenty of wood and Angela was happy to supply more when we ran low. We would definitely recommend this place to others!

If you’re after something a little different then this is he place for you. The little touches were perfect, the river view was something special and the accommodation is romantic and cosy. Angela is a great host, very kind and helpful and was never too busy to talk. Perfect for a romantic anniversary get away.

My girlfriend and I had a lovely stay at the Rabbit Hole Lodge. Angela has made the cabin very comfortable and she was very helpful when we wanted to have a barbecue one evening. The location is perfect, with the garden on the banks of the river Ure. It was a great place from which to start walks into the countryside. We would certainly like to come again!

The Rabbit Hole is a beautiful place to stay and is well recommended! The gardens are amazing and great to explore, but even if it is raining (raining heavily, in our case) there is plenty to do in the summer house. We went out for food in Ripon, but on our return, we sat by the fire with some wine, a game of cards and the radio on; it was the perfect relaxing weekend for our 6-year anniversary. The small touches in this air bnb are great! From the breakfast, to the infrared sauna, to the alpaca small holding. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and made you feel right at home. The hosts and the Rabbit Hole were everything we imagined and more! Keep up the amazing work you do.

We loved our stay in the quirky Alice in a Wonderland themed property. The place was scrupulously clean and tidy and beautifully presented. The log fire was a real bonus as well as the infrared sauna. The outside shower worked well and the toilet too, both of which were clean and spider free. The garden area was perfect to relax in at the start and end of the day and the alpacas, turkeys and chickens were an added bonus to the whole relaxing experience. Angela made us feel very welcome and spent time chatting to us about the property and animals and we would thoroughly recommend the place to others. A real gem.

One of the lovely things about AirBnB is experiencing the small touches of caring that are the mark of a great host, and Angela's place has that in abundance. From the care and attention to detail that's obviously been given to creating such a unique place through to lighting the stove before our arrival and the lovely breakfast (among many other things), it was lovely to feel that we were in the hands of someone who cared about our experience and was able to deliver on it. Sitting under a plum tree watching the river at the end of the day was absolutely lovely. Thanks for enabling us to have such a memorable time.
