In this current climate, the world seems to be giving us more and more opportunities to think “f*** it, I am off back to nature”. Do you ever get the feeling to pack your bags and head into the wilderness like Bear Grylls, or Ray Mears? Although that might work, we have a better alternative, a beautiful lodge in the forest where things are a little simpler. That’s right, get back to nature and live a bit different for a weekend or mid-week and see if it helps reset that urge to run away you may be feeling.
These secluded tree lodges in Swinton Bivouac, sleep up to seven people and are the perfect woodland retreat in the Yorkshire Dales, near Masham. A stripped back wooden lodge is a truly authentic and intimate place to relax with family and focus on what really matters in life.
From your rustic woodland balcony, you can take in the stunning views of the surrounding valley and take in at what nature has to offer. Surrounded by trees, you can sit back and listen to the sounds of nature and watch the trees sway in the wind. Autumn is the perfect time of year to witness the golden leaves falling from the trees, but it is equally as tranquil in all seasons.
Inside it has one king-size bed, one double & three single beds. It is all open plan, so everyone will be sleeping close quarters, get used you’ll be getting close quick. The king-size bed is up a rustic-style maisonette, you can shout down to the kids when they are up at the crack of dawn.
The kitchen is fully furnished, with everything you will need to cook a hearty meal. There is a gas hob, so you don’t have to rub two sticks together. The open plan living space is great for entertaining, so if you are thinking of going with friends and family, you’ll have plenty of room for fun. The wood-burning fireplace will heat the cabin all year round, which is perfect whatever the season.
The cabin comes with a gas-powered en-suite shower to enjoy a hot shower every morning. There are firepits to order if you want to keep the party going on a night and look up at the stars through the woodland canopy whilst being kept warm by the glow of a roaring fire.
The lodges are pet-friendly, little Fido doesn’t have to miss out on the fun! We are sure that he will enjoy getting back to nature as much as you, if not more! If you’d like to find out more about these lodges, then click here to get more information on your stay.
