HI Glampers !

How To Make The Most Of Your Yorkshire Glamping Trip
Are you looking for the perfect getaway, but dreading having to make all the arrangements and travel plans? Love connecting with nature and the idea of camping in the woods but not the prospect of putting up your own tent and roughing it? Well then, glamping in Yorkshire’s beautiful countryside is the answer for you. The serene countryside, genteel seaside resorts, a spa town, countless historic manors and many such endless splendors, are all part of what makes up the beautiful Yorkshire. The World Travel Awards named Yorkshire the leading destination of Europe in 2013. And glamping, popular among luxury travelers and campers alike, has found its treasured base in Yorkshire.
Where to glamp in Yorkshire?
Glamping in Yorkshire allows you to disconnect from the chaos of daily life and realise all your dreams of camping without giving up on creature comforts. After all, soaking in a hot tub inside a romantic teepee and in the surroundings of resplendent greenery all around sure makes for the most relaxing and glammed-up camping holiday. The beautiful Camp Hill estate located between the bustling market towns of Bedale and Ripon in North Yorkshire is the ideal base for a Glamping holiday. Based here, you can explore the picturesque villages of Kirklington and Carthorpe, the spa town of Harrogate and make side trips to the great cities of Newcastle and Leeds.
What’s your style of Glamping?
Glamping accommodation choices are plenty. They come in an unending array of styles and sizes. For a big group of up to 5, the Bell Tents, inspired by the Native American Tipis, are one of the ideal tents with a double bed, a sofa bed, and a single sofa bed. Hobbit pods are luxury and cosy alternatives to traditional tents fit for four with a bunk bed, futon ZIP chair, a seating area and the basics included. There are cozier ones fit for a honeymooning couple dressed in scented candles and fairy lights. Or, hideaway in the unidomes inspired by the aesthetic living of the pioneers and the dwellings of nomadic tribes. If not, let your African dreams take wings as you cocoon with your partner and kids inside the fun-filled Safari Tents fit for 6 to 8, with its own shower and toilet and a decked terrace to enjoy the views and feel the breeze.
Boost your Glamping holidays
A communal campfire, wooded trails, back-to-nature shower sheds, a children’s area, an eco-spa, and a Nordic BBQ cabin - these are the highlights of Glamping at Camp Katur. The natural sights, fresh air and sunlight make glamping a wholesome experience here and there are plenty more ways to boost it. Friends and families at Camp Katur have a ball quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, touring on Segway, cycling, wine tasting and doing fun workshops on baking, cocktail making and more.
Finally, glamping somewhere on these 250 acres of English Country Estate with an 18th-century building at its focal point makes for an unforgettable holiday experience – where the surroundings only spell of woods, rolling meadows, and green spaces as far as you can look.
