Yorkshire’s original glamping site and one of the first in the UK

Yeehah! Camp Pinewood goes one better than other tipi sites, offering cowboy shacks and Wild West wagons, too. It’s easy to see why it’s a favourite spot for kids. But over the years it’s seen a curious transformation. Not just the westernification of its glamping getup, but also a host of other wonderful camping options, so that folk who want a more low key stay are also welcomed along.

As well as a number of pitches for your own tent, there are around a dozen pre-pitched tipis, equipped with futons and cube beds, rugs, outside picnic benches, and the luxury of electricity (so not exactly the cowboy lifestyle), while there are also shacks, cabins and wagons that come with double beds and modern furnishings, like toasters, microwaves and heating. A number of the glamping lodges and a couple of the tipis also have their own private hot tubs, the large cowboy camping shacks - large pods, really  – have their own verandahs, and the fantastic Woody's Western Wagons are old-fashioned caravans just like you see in all the Westerns. For families it’s a perfect escape. Kids disappear off into the wooded area at the bottom of the site, which has paths weaving around the trees, perfect for hide-and-seek, while a great little gift shop at reception sells Wild West toys for little and big kids too.

Of course glamping appeals to kids and adults alike, and there's a flip-side to Pinewood Park in that it has a surprisingly adult appeal, with outdoor weddings and private events all catered for and its wonderful location drawing in those seeking handy accommodation on the outskirts of Scarborough – it’s just a two-mile walk to the centre of town. For those looking for a holiday on the Yorkshire Coast, there are few more well-appointed spots.

Add Your Review


We spent a brilliant weekend at Pinewood Park just outside Scarborough in one of the fab Tipi tents. The tent was spacious with foam beds to sleep on and plenty of room for four. It was May so the heater was appreciated and heated up the tent perfectly. The kids had a great time playing in the surrounding woods and making friends with our fellow campers. The site has a fun cowboy and indian theme and we will definitely be returning.
