As winter slowly draws to a close and the fresh smell of spring edges closer, we’re looking to warmer days where we can truly absorb the beautiful that is Yorkshire. And the best way to do it? Good old fashioned glamping. From luxury yurts to cosy wood cabins, here’s our guide to glamping (with hot tubs, BBQs and all the fluffy extras included, of course) right here in Yorkshire.
1. Camp Katur, Bedale
Tucked away just a short drive away from the Yorkshire Dales, Camp Katur is tranquil – to say the least. But what makes it that extra bit special? The addition of wood-fired hot tubs.
Available with their ‘Forest Retreat’ and Geodomes, guests can enjoy the green surroundings in true relaxation, alongside other finishing touches such as fire pits, BBQs and more.
Each Geodome is kitted out with a double bed for essential luxury, alongside en-suite bathrooms and even space for dining. Basically, it’s glamping done right. Find out more here. Camp Katur, The Camp Hill Estate, Kirklington, Bedale, DL8 2LS.
2. Humble Bee Farm, Scarborough
Situated in the countryside near Filey, Humble Bee Farm is a peaceful, coastal retreat – with plenty of cosy wigwams and yurts to choose from.
Book one of their lovely wigwams, and you’ll get the chance to take a dip in your very own private hot tub, accompanied by only the stunning stretch of greenery out front.
Boasting room enough for four to enjoy, each wigwam is kitted out with a private deck, firepit, electric hot tub, cosy seating area and even hot water, putting the ‘glam’ in glamping. Book here. Humble Bee Farm, Flixton, Scarborough, YO11 3UJ.
