I know we live here, so maybe a little biased, but we think the Yorkshire Dales is the most beautiful National Park in the country. It has everything you could ask for, rolling green hills, quaint country pubs and some of the most natural beauty you can imagine. You can stay in a beautiful yurt next to the River Wharfe at Mason’s Campsite in Appletreewick.
Just down the road from Bolton Abbey, Mason’s is in a unique location, perfect to use as a base whilst you explore the Yorkshire Dales. Nearby is the beautiful village of Burnsall, Grassington, where ‘All Creatures Great and Small is filmed and the spectacular Grimwith Reservoir and much more.
The riverside campsite is dog-friendly and offers three types of Glamping tents Riverview Yurts, Luxury Yurts and Safari Tents. The Riverview Yurts overlook the River Wharfe and are decked out with carpets, rugs, wrought-iron beds and give an extra touch of luxury. The luxury yurts are similar without the view and the safari tents offer a double bed, single and bunk beds – perfect for families.
They all come decked out with home comforts such as a log-burning stove, hairdryer and mirror, hot water bottles, a small electric kettle, with tea and coffee. They have a gas hob with pans, crockery and cooking utensils. They’re decorated with fairy lights and has a table and chairs and more to make your stay comfy.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is home to some of the darkest skies and has been protected as a dark skies reserve, which means you can enjoy an amazing stargazing experience at night. Look up at the night sky and see thousands of stars, the Milky Way, meteors and even the Northern Lights. The area is vast becoming a popular spot for stargazers, and with good reason.
If you’re not too fussed about glamping, Mason’s Campsite in Appletreewick have pitches for tents and motorhomes. It has the classic look of the Yorkshire Dales with its beautiful drystone walls. There is also a Coffee and Bread Shed that offers fresh bread and croissants, barista-style coffee as well as bacon and sausages for that bbq style breakfast experience of camping.
Mason’s Campsite in Applewickall sounds absolutely idyllic, and we’ve been obsessed with it since we found this amazing glamping experience.
