Overview

Swinton Bivouac, in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, is a glamping site featuring yurts, cabins and a barn.

"More Huckleberry Finn than Four Seasons" (The Guardian), the site is set around an old stone farmhouse, overlooking moorland and the Leighton Reservoir. There are several walking trails within the woodland, plus a folly dating from the late 1800s and a Druid's Temple.

The site is a 10-minute drive from the market town of Masham, which is renowned for its two breweries (Black Sheep and Theakstons); both run run daily tours. The Marfield Wetlands Nature Reserve and Thorp Perrow -- which is home to a Victorian arboretum, a tea room, birds of prey and animal collections -- are both within 20 minutes' drive.

The Meadow Yurts are sage green in colour, so they blend into the rural setting. They sleep up to five people, and each one has a double bed and three single beds. They come with bed linen, a kitchenette with a sink, a wooden veranda and a wood-burning stove (plus wood to fuel your fire). There's also a separate wooden hut by the side of each yurt with a toilet. There's no electricity, so remember to pack your torch!

There's a communal kitchen equipped with gas rings, a seating area and a toilet. A wood-fired hot tub is available to hire from 3pm for £60 per 3-hour slot -- you'll need to pre-book directly at least 24 hours in advance.

From the press:


"You could just come here to do nothing. Cook by lantern light, lie in bed watching sunlight on the trees cast shadows on the ceiling or… take a coffee onto the porch and listen to the curlews" -- The Guardian
