Step onto the North Shire campsite, and you’ll find yourself immersed in a magical world you maybe didn’t expect to find in North Yorkshire – where wizards and goblins and hippogriffs may well exist, and where camping truly does become an unforgettable experience.
Thanks to their creative take on glamping alone, North Shire offers some of the most unique staycation spots in the entirety of the UK – let alone Yorkshire – and we have a feeling Harry Potter fans would give a limb to stay just one night.
Inspired by the Gryffindor Dorm room, fans of the franchise can get a slice of Hogwarts life with room for up to six guests, and they’ve really pulled out all the stops to make it as authentic as possible. Donning a similar, cosy vibe thanks to its plush burgundy furnishings and log burning stove, guests will also find single dorm beds that replicate those we saw plenty of times in the movies, each framed with their own privacy curtains and plush velvet bedding.
Elsewhere in the cottage, guests will get to make use of a comfy living area to relax on a cold winter night, a fully equipped kitchen, and a private bathroom. And the bathroom is where the magic continues, with a mermaid theme running throughout that gives a subtle nod towards the Goblet of Fire scene where Harry takes his mermaid egg to the abandoned girl’s bathroom to seek Moaning Myrtle’s help.
The cottage comes in at quite the steal, too, working out at just £50pp, per night. And if that wasn’t enough Potter for your liking, the site is also home to a cottage which resembles Hagrid’s famous hut.
Launching just last year, the gorgeous hut has room enough for 6, with two double bedrooms, a double sofa bed in the cosy lounge area, and even a copper roll-top tub to wind down in after a long day exploring Saltburn-by-the-Sea and the surrounding Moors. And each finishing is as cosy as the last, with faux fur touches, cottage checks, stooped doorways and lanterns lighting up the miniature home.
Both unique stays can be found on the same site at Golden Hill Farm within the North York Moors, with the beauty that is Saltburn-by-the-Sea right on your doorstep. Guests can also enjoy being ideally located to beauty spots such as Staithes and Runswick Bay.
