About Little North Field Glamping

Suitable For

Glampers and well-behaved dogs – yes. Tents, campervans and caravans – no.


Near the picturesque village of Ripley, Little North Field finds itself in the middle of a golden triangle of heritage sites, which are all well within a half-hour drive. To the north this includes the magnificent ruins of Fountains Abbey (01765 608888), plus the National Trust-owned Brimham Rocks area (01423 780688), 400 acres of moorland featuring unique rock formations that look like carefully placed sculptures (there's also a kiosk and shop). To the south, meanwhile, is riverside Ripley and privately owned Ripley Castle (01423 770152; open for events and tours of the house and grounds in summer). Beyond that lies the town of Harrogate and, a little east, Knareseborough, as well as RHS Garden Harlow Carr (01423 565418). For good walks, head into the Nidderdale AONB for hikes around Patley Bridge and Gouthwaite Reservoir or sections of the Nidderdale Way, or walk some of the 50-mile Ripon Rowel Challenge route.

Food & Drink

It takes all of about two minutes to walk to the Chequers Inn (01423 771544) at Bishop Thornton. This hotel and restaurant is mainly laid out for dining, with a good carvery on Sundays, but there is a bar at the front for casual drinkers with a single handpull serving Ossett Yorkshire Blonde. There is a pool table near the bar area. For a pint elsewhere, try the recently refurbished and simply named Inn at South Stainley (01423 779060), located between Harrogate and Ripon, or try the family-friendly Guy Fawkes Arms (01423 868400), a welcoming country pub in the beautiful village of Scotton, owned and run by two local families. The terrace at the Grantley Arms (01765 620227) is also a top option when the weather is good, while those visiting Ripley Castle should have a pint in The Boar’s Head (01423 771888), which is part of the estate. For a lighter bite, Stanley’s Independent coffee house and kitchen (07387 317638) is the place to go for great coffee, Oliver’s Pantry (01765 600548) is a quirky café just off the Market Square in Ripon (with a particularly staggering array of loose tea), while in Harrogate, historic Betty's (01423 814070) steals all the headlines but Baltzersen’s (01423 202363) is a top café alternative that offers you the best Yorkshire sourced ingredients prepared with Scandinavian and Nordic flare.

A week of Memories

What an absolutely fantastic weeks spent at Little North Field! Upon arrival we we're greeted by Catherine and shown to our Hedgehog Tent, incredibly clean and so beautifully laid out. Lots of little touches which had our two young children searching for the next "look at that" moments. The gardens were beautiful and so many interesting areas to explore including lots of frog hunting! The fire pit was amazing in the evening for toasting marshmallows and making smores (all ingredients included in the welcome hamper in the kitchen). Everything you could need was included from kitchen utensils to everyday items such as cling film, ice trays etc. In the evenings the fairy lights were a magical touch in the bedrooms along with big soft beds and cosy duvets. As it was incredibly hot during our stay Catherine provided a small paddling pool for the children! I would suggest, if you're a light sleeper like me I suggest you take some ear plugs for the night time as the chorus of cows in the next field come alive at night! Thank you to Catherine and Tim for a wonderful stay we hope to be back for Halloween!

Fantastic Experience

My daughter & I booked a Mon - Fri stay in Foxes Den and had the most fabulous experience. The whole stay is well considered. We were met on arrival by our friendly hosts, with wheel barrows to transport our bags the (short) path to our glamping tent. Tent doesn’t to it justice - it might be canvas in the outside, but inside it is a luxury home from home! There was a well stocked kitchen area, wood burning stove, lovely bathroom and the bedrooms are so cute - with warm, comfortable and generously sized beds. The little decorative and thoughtful touches (marshmallows, coffee, ice cube trays etc) really helped make our stay extra special. Great location for exploring the local area. Thank you Catherine & Family - we fully plan to come again!

Relaxing and comfortable

Stayed from 23rd April until 26th April On arrival (which we were able to do earlier than expected as Catherine contacted us to say the accommodation was ready for us to check in which was really appreciated) we received a warm and friendly greeting from Catherine who took us to our safari tent (hedgehog hideaway) we were completely astounded by the tent. We were even more amazed when we went inside. Catherine had provided everything anyone could require for their stay the welcome hamper is a lovely touch, there was not a speck of dust or dirt the whole tent was immaculate, the beds were so comfortable and spotlessly clean also smelt really nice. We had the most wonderful stay very relaxing very peaceful we were left alone to enjoy but were reassured that Catherine and her family were nearby if we needed anything. Little north field clamping is something very special and as I said to Catherine when she came to say goodbye to us when we sadly had to leave it most definitely puts the GLAM into glamping. Thank you for a wonderful break we will definitely be back.

A cozy and lovely stay

My friend and I loved Little North Field. We stayed in the Owl themed tent and all the little details were so cute! Catherine and Tim were so lovely, very attentive from start and made sure we were comfortable. We struggled with the log fire and we were showed how to use it. The location was in a great spot, had lots of outdoors amenities and a short drive to knaresborough and Harrogate. I’m staying here again with family in September and can’t wait to stay here again :)

Fantastic all round!

We stayed on what was set to be a soggy weekend but we had the most wonderful time. Catherine and Tim are really friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. The tent was perfect for us and our 3 children. The space was great for the kids to safely run around and we managed a campfire each night. The little touches really made the difference. We would love to visit again.
