Swaledale Yurts

Swaledale Yurts

A little bit of Mongolia in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Swaledale Yurts offer a whole other glamping experience you don’t have to travel far for. Bringing together two Yorkshire delights – the tranquility of the countryside and warming home comforts – this is a place where you can properly unwind.

Their five yurts give you oodles of space – all 19 feet of it – with locking doors, wood-burning stoves, real (yes, real!) beds, sofas and dining areas. Each yurt sleeps between two and five guests and has its own private toilet and shower facilities just a short walk away. As for food, hot meals are available on request or you can cook up a storm in the shared kitchen. Heck, you can even borrow one of the BBQs. There’s so much to love.

Camp Katur

Camp Katur

Camp Katur has a lot to offer the glamping-curious. We’re talking geodomes with wood-burning stoves and private decks nestled in the woodland, quirky foliage-surrounded tents with beds that are packed full of comfort, and chic wooden lodges with bespoke interiors, lit only by candlelight.

It’s all going on here, but it doesn’t stop there. There are hot tubs, en-suites and stargazing ceilings to boot. This is a glamping getaway that allows you to not just experience Yorkshire, but feel it. From the wildflower meadows to the oh-so-green woodlands, the 300-acre Camp Hill Estate is your oyster. Escape the city, say so long to the suburbs, and you’ll be glad you have one of those stargazing ceilings once you catch a glimpse of the pitch-black night sky.

Or, you can even bring along your own tent and still enjoy the glamorous amenities.

This is a dog and family-friendly affair, surrounded by greenery, and the Yorkshire Coast isn’t too far away either. Their glamping pods come with plug sockets aplenty, so you can toss the portable chargers away, with the outside kitted out with a picnic bench and a charcoal barbecue – the perfect family set-up.

There may be no electricity, but you’ll still have everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a private kitchen and a gas-powered shower for those essential freshen ups. Not to mention the hot tub that’ll be all yours to enjoy under the stars – because you can actually see them here. You can order a curated food package to your spot, filled with locally-sourced produce to cook yourself on the barbecue.

The Dragonfly Dreams safari lodge is the biggest glamping tent on site, only it doesn’t feel like once you’re inside. It’s got a cosy feel with three bedrooms, all separated by wooden walls, so it can comfortably house bigger groups and families – even the grandparents will love it. With toilets, showers and a kitchen, you’ll have everything you could need on your stay, but the late-night barbecues may just be the highlight.

Yes, you’ll have hot water, a comfy bed, wood burner and a kitchen, only you can spend your time staring at the campfire and dazzling night stars instead of a screen. And if you really want to get back to nature, you can give shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) a try while you’re here.
