Why choose Yorkshire Dales Glamping?

We like to think “why would you not choose our glamping site” for your holiday, but we appreciate with so much choice out there, we may need to say more to stand out from the crowd!

We are a family run site, located on the edge of our fourth generation working dairy farm.  I, Joanne, look after all things glamping and weddings (it’s usually me who processes bookings and ensures everything is ship shape for arrival) and my husband, Sean, is the dairy farmer.  We have two lively boys and two gorgeous Springadors – Roxy and Storm.

We believe in good old fashioned outdoor fun; tree climbing, hiking, hunting for wildlife and marvelling at the stars.  We are also a tiny bit romantic (!) so love being able to provide a cosy cabin with a log stove, for those looking for some down time.

Our site is wild, yet cosy and relaxed; peaceful yet on the doorstep of adventure (for those who are looking for it).  We have just seven cabins set in over seven acres of land.  This land comprises of ponds, woodlands, wild grassland and beautiful moorland.

Being in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, means that we are right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors.  But there is so much more here to discover than rolling hills and dramatic skylines! 

Our glamping site is not a manicured holiday park, instead we offer natural beauty, sweeping horizons, uninterrupted views and accommodation that is not overlooked.  We even offer a free farm tour if you would like to know more about dairy farming and meet some of our cows!

Our family have been farming here since 1938!  We milk 200 dairy cows and we normally have around 70 young cows here on the farm with us too.  We have one bull; he is an Aberdeen Angus and we call him Dave. 

We care passionately about animal welfare and the role farming now must play in creating sustainable food production.  We continuously seek best practice when it comes to animal and land management and we are working hard to improve our carbon footprint.

The aim for our Yorkshire Dales glamping site is to offer a glamping experience that creates long lasting happy memories for all.  Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic secret escape, a family looking to reconnect off-line, a corporate group looking for a day out in the country or a collection of friends looking for an exclusive site to enjoy together.

We just have one small favour to ask: please, wherever possible (whenever you book accommodation with independent providers like us), BOOK DIRECT!  That means, book online through our own website or drop us a message and make a booking that way.  By booking direct, all the funds come straight to us and we avoid hefty commission payment to third parties (this also often means we can offer you a better deal than the prices listed on those sites).

If we can help with any questions or queries, please do contact us, we will be happy to help.
