About Little North Field Glamping
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.
