Luxe hand-crafted lodges and yurts, sleeping up to seven people in the idyllic Yorkshire Dales, including discounts on spa and cookery classes

Glamp it up with a difference with a stay at Swinton Bivouac, an award-winning eco-friendly rustic complex on the stunning Swinton Estate in the Yorkshire Dales. With access to 20,000 acres of unspoilt Yorkshire moors, it overlooks rolling meadows dotted with sheep and criss-crossed by dry stone walls. Comprising eight yurts, six tree lodges, a bunk barn, cafe and wood-fired hot tub, all are set around an old stone farmhouse. There’s even a 19th-century folly nearby – the Druid’s Temple stone circle – dubbed Yorkshire’s Stonehenge.

Home for your stay is a beautifully designed Tree lodge or a Meadow yurt packed with rustic charm, offering a true back-to-nature experience where you awaken each day to beautiful views and the distinctive sound of curlews. If you fancy some culinary indulgence, Swinton Park Hotel houses a quality restaurant and an excellent cookery school. Swinton Bivouac’s many awards include being a White Rose winner and holder of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. With accolades from The Guardian and Sunday Times, a stay at Swinton Bivouac brings new meaning to the eco-glamping experience.

Good to know

Tree lodges have a maximum occupancy of seven (with a minimum of one adult), whilst Meadow yurts have a maximum occupancy of five (with a minimum of one adult).


Bursting with rustic charm, Tree lodges sit on the edge of the woodland with sweeping views across the valley from a private veranda. They're ideal for couples (sleep on an upper mezzanine double bed) but can accommodate up to seven people. No electricity, TV or Wi-Fi are to be found here – this is all about getting away from it all. There's a range and a gas hob for cooking (by lamplight), as well as hot water heated by a wood burner.

Meadow yurts are set on a tranquil hillside with views of the surrounding valley. They sleep up to five guests in a sturdy tent-like structure, with open plan interiors, cosy beds, and a living area with a wood-burning stove. The lodges have their own bathrooms, while yurts have their own toilets attached, with access to showers.


You can prepare basic meals in your kitchen, but that would mean missing out on the delicious offerings served in the cafe. Enjoy scrummy breakfasts, plus hearty lunches and dinners. Specials may include a warming homemade soup and delicious lemon drizzle cake.


Swinton Park Hotel are on hand to offer blissful spa treatments during your stay should you fancy a pampering (pre-booking required).


Swinton Bivouac is in a remote rural location five miles from the market town of Masham, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The luxury Swinton Park Hotel is nearby, set in 200 acres of parkland, where you can enjoy a morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and a stroll in the grounds. It all makes an ideal base for walking, cycling and sightseeing (Jervaulx Abbey and Aysgarth Falls are close by). There are many idyllic Yorkshire villages to discover in the area, many with charming pubs.
