After a long day exploring Yorkshire’s brooding moors and dramatic coastline, what could be better than relaxing in a private roll-top bath amongst the trees? Snuggled within 15 acres of a huge 200-acre woodland, Jollydays offers luxury boutique luxury glamping in ‘God's Own Country’. Boasting king-size beds, wood burners and even candelabras (yes, that’s right!), this site is a real upgrade from your standard glamping getaway. Five star food – including potted pheasant or a supper pot of ham cooked in cider can be delivered to your accommodation on arrival. Set up in 2008, Jollydays is great fun in all seasons; naturally, glampers will spend most of the long, summer days outside walking and cycling in some of the UK’s finest scenery but as light levels change through the year, autumn evenings are best spent snuggled up by the wood burner in your slippers. Fantastic!

The Owner Says

Our Woodland Tents are perfect for families and adult groups to enjoy a woodland escape. Inside it has a large wood burning stove, instant hot running water and six hot water bottles for those chillier nights. You will find a gas hob with four rings and a barbecue outside to help you with your cooking. Alternatively indulge by ordering one of our breakfast or supper baskets throughout your stay.

You will also find a bathroom cabin inside the tent with a toilet, shower and a roll-top bath and sink. A kitchen cabin is inside the tent too with a kitchen sink, electric light, all crockery and utensils, and a fridge to chill a bottle when you arrive! The veranda outside has a seating area for eating alfresco and an extra space with awning overhead to BBQ. Finally there is a large dining and living space to have a candlelit dinner and relaxing space on the sofa, all surrounding that big wood burning stove!

All of the tents at Jolly Days are set within 15 acres of a 200 acre woodland with no tents closer than 15 metres and many much further than that. Being in a quiet woodland you can expect to hear the murmur of voices, occasional laughter and the natural wildlife, all adding to the feeling of escaping life. Jollydays Glamping attracts couples, groups, families, reunions, walkers, non campers, the young and old.

Your tent is kitted out with bedding and furniture but don't forget to bring a torch, clothes, shampoo and other personal cleaning products, Food and drink, slippers and wellies!

AWFUL !!!!!!

We stayed in a safari style tent last year, it was infested with earwigs, there were holes in the floor. There were dense spiders nest that clearly hadn't been disturbed for some time. It had mold every where in the bathroom. The flooring was damp and damaged and there was absolutely nothing glamourous about it. Such a shame as the fairy walk was lovely and the location/ setting was magical. But the tent was clearly on its last legs and I felt that compared to my other glamping experience it just didn't match up. Not for us...

Underwhelmed and overcharged

I was quite underwhelmed in all honesty. The place wasn't in the middle of the woods. We stayed in the woodcutter hut 3 and it was at the edge of a field. The farm was tending fields and it was quite noisy when we were there. The walks around the hut were surprisingly limited- signs are needed for the circular walk (or Is this now the fairy trail?). Needs to be clearer. The grounds keeper actually walked into our hut in the middle of the day without knocking- which was all very strange. Not sure why this happened. He looked suprised to see us and walked out without explaining why he had done this. Lucky we were fully dressed haha I wouldn't recommend in all honesty. Very overpriced for what you actually get. I feel like I have been miss-sold here.

Take the A166 (Stamford Bridge Road then Bridlington Road) from York; turn off left to Buttercrambe after passing Gate Helmsley on the way to Stamford Bridge. Follow the road for approx 1 mile, pass through the woodland, and the entrance is signposted down the lane, across a field. Bus no. 10 departs from just outside York railway station and will take you into Stamford Bridge; from there it’s around a 15-minute walk to the camp. Local taxis are also available.
