When it comes to camping, Yorkshire is a difficult place to beat. The landscape is sprawling and varied, meaning that there’s something to appeal to campers of every sort. If you’re considering a trip of this kind, then there are a few options to think about. You might invest in a tent, or spend a little more on a glamping experience. For maximum flexibility and value in the long term, then a motorhome might make a sensible investment. Buy the appropriate motorhome insurance, too, for maximum peace of mind.
Humble Bee Farm
This site is to be found just down the road from Scarborough Beach. It offers a variety of camping experiences, encompassing both traditional and ‘glamping’ options. There are yurts, bell tents and wigwams to choose from, many of which come equipped with underfloor heating, wood-fired hot tubs, and other luxurious touches.
This luxury glamping site is a popular wedding venue, thanks largely to its focus on stunning backdrops and luxury. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a short walk away, and the site itself includes a variety of unique tents to choose from. There’s space for one car at each glamping plot, and you’ll get a wheelbarrow for transporting your luggage right up to the front door. Some of the accommodation here doesn’t come with any electricity at all, so bear that in mind if you think you’ll need to charge your phone or check your emails.
This site is a little bit more traditional, being set within a farm where your tent sits just a stone’s throw from grazing sheep. There’s an on-site coffee shop, and you’ll be able to take a short trip to Skipton, or to the famous Bolton Abbey. Best of all for some campers, Catgill is dog-friendly.
The Hideaway at Baxby Manor
This gorgeous little site actually scooped campsite of the year at the Yorkshire Post’s 2022 Tourism Awards. Take a look at the range of options, and it’s easy to see why. The latest glamping cabin, the Kabinas, includes air-source heat pumps, super-king beds, an outdoor fire pit and a hot tub. Of course, the major selling point here is that the site itself is built into the amazing Baxby Manor estate, which has stood since the Medieval era.
Hooks House Farm
This campsite offers a range of camping plots, as well as a self-catering cottage for up to six people. It’s nestled just a short distance from the Moors, and offers spectacular views of the adjoining Robin Hood’s Bay. There are many beaches within easy reach, so this is a perfect staging ground for those looking to explore Whitby, Scarborough, and everything in between.
