Sheriff Hutton (Ready Camp)

UK England North East England North Yorkshire York

Bracken Hill, Sheriff Hutton, North Yorkshire YO60 6QG

Beautiful countryside glamping, not far from the city of York and on the edge of North Yorkshire's Howardian Hills

About ten miles north of the ancient city of York, the peaceful village of Sherriff Hutton is home to a gap-toothed ruined castle and a campsite which is in many ways in an ideal location – handy for both the city and some of the best of the glorious North Yorkshire countryside.

Situated on the edge of the Howardian Hills AONB, between the Vale of York and the North York Moors National Park, the glamping here is comfortable and well-appointed, with two pre-pitched tents offering a great balance between home comforts and outdoor living, and equipped with everything you need for a fully-fledged family holiday: two bedrooms with proper beds (the tents can comfortably sleep four adults or a family of six), a fully stocked kitchenette and an extending living area with an outside verandah on which you can nurse a drink while ruminating on the day's activities.

The site is prettily planted with trees, and very well maintained, and has good, up-to-date facilities. It's also just a mile or so outside Sherriff Hutton village, which has a couple of pubs and and a post office.

As regards things, to do, the surrounding countryside is green and gloriously gentle, great for walking and cycling but with a host of high-grade attractions too, not least Castle Howard, one of the grandest stately homes in the country. There are also the peaceful ruins of Kirkham Priory, the nineteenth-century Benedictine abbey at Ampleforth (famous for its school), open to visitors and selling its own cider from its shop and visitor centre, and the restored eighteenth-century of Howsham Mill, which has been recently restored and mounts interesting exhibitions on renewable energy.  All in all a perfect place for a peaceful glamping break.
