Glamping in North Yorkshire

Spectacular national parks, sandy beaches and lively towns to explore. Endless walking trails, loads of historic attractions and a sophisticated restaurant scene. We’re talking about North Yorkshire – and what better way to explore England’s biggest county than on a glamping break with a touch of luxury thrown in? 

So if you like the sound of waking up to glorious Yorkshire Dales views in a luxurious bed, or exploring the ancient streets of York from your glamping base on a farm, read on to find the North Yorkshire glamping site that’s just the ticket for you.

Where to stay in North Yorkshire

  • Treating the offspring? Consider staying close to the major theme parks. Look for family-friendly bases near Pickering for animal encounters and rollercoaster rides at Flamingo Land Resort, or search out glamping sites near Ripon for the daredevil thrills at Lightwater Valley. If you need extra room for the kids, look for spacious tipis and yurts, which are ideal for family holidays. 

  • There’s no wrong time to visit popular North Yorkshire seaside resorts like Scarborough and Filey; out of season you can look forward to bracing beach walks and enjoying the promenades and mini-golf courses without the crowds. Look for glamping accommodation that’s open all year, perhaps picking a wooden pod with insulation or a glampsite that allows campfires to keep you all cosy and warm. 

  • If you’re intent on long-distance hikes up the fabled Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park or conquering the challenging Lyke Wake Walk across the North York Moors, bringing the family pet may be part of your plans. It’s easy to find dog-friendly glamping accommodation on Pitchup – and some sites have dedicated dog showers to keep your canine chums mud-free. 

  • When it’s time for some downtime with your favourite human, why not up the romance factor on a North Yorkshire glamping break by booking a vintage gypsy caravan or a secluded Nidderdale retreat with spectacular views? If a lively nightlife scene is more to your taste, look for a base near elegant Harrogate, with its buzzing pubs, clubs and choice of cosmopolitan dining. 

What to do in North Yorkshire

  • Stand on the top of Sutton Bank for Vale of York views that stretch for miles, or amble up to the spectacular limestone cliffs at Malham Cove. Active families can run around treetop courses at Go Ape in Dalby Forest.

  • The North Yorkshire coastline has dozens of glamping options near the beach. Stay at Runswick Bay and kids can search for fossils, and you’ll have views of Gothic-era hilltop Whitby Abbey from secluded Sandsend beach. Keen to get out on the waves? Head for the surfing school at Cayton Bay. 

  • Visit National Trust-owned Fountains Abbey, sacked in 1539 by Henry VIII, and today with kids’ nature trails and lakeside gardens to tour. Bolton Abbey is another lovely spot, with year-round family events and scenic walks along the River Wharfe. Pitchup offers family-size lodges and safari tents close to both.

  • No matter when you visit North Yorkshire, it’s a clever idea to think of rainy-day options. We suggest keeping the kids happy with a tour of ancient York at JORVIK Viking Centre, or treating them to tasting sessions at York’s Chocolate Story.
