Glamping Yorkshire

Probably one of the best located sites in England, Jollydays Glamping is the original and authentic woodland retreat – it has inspired hundreds of copycat businesses since its launch in 2008, but none have come close to recreating the magic of this unique woodland experience. This is a forest holiday with a difference, nestled into a stunning 200 acre woodland, but super close to the historic city of York. 4 large Bothys are privately located in their own slice of woodland, with private verandas, wood burners and their own bathrooms inside the tent and they’re big enough to sleep 6 in comfort. Cosy Woodcutter Huts sleep 2 – 4 and have their own private bathroom within our stunning Victorian style Bathhouse

This woodland retreat is not just about the accommodation (although that is enchanting and comfy), this is about the beautiful woods, getting back to nature and simpler times, spending time catching up with friends and family – for kids it’s a paradise and a fantastic place to wean them off their screens! 200 acres of magical woodland surrounds the glamping site, which can only be accessed by one small private road.

The woods are brimming with wildlife and the dawn chorus is something to behold, build a den or watch the stars around the campfire – this Saxon woodland is only a couple of minutes’ drive from the historical village of Stamford Bridge, or 15 minutes to the York park and ride.


Jollydays guests can enjoy free admission to award winning attraction Northwood Trail, England’s Fairy & Hobgoblin Sanctuary. This charming woodland attraction has giants swords, dragons nests, carved thrones as well as a myriad of fairy doors and treehouses, it also  houses the only Fairy Museum in the UK – full of precious fairy artefacts. Even more popular with adults than children the trail weaves its magic  and is a wonderful antidote to the stresses of modern life.


Open weekends and school holidays this cosy woodland bar/bar serves delicious organic coffee, (roasted locally) and tasty platters and sandwiches, all made with the finest local ingredients. We can also open by arrangement for large groups for evenings or special events.

Our fabulous woodcutters huts are like a shepherds hut but at a spacious 6 metres by 3 metres are a lot bigger! These cosy, insulated huts are double glazed  The perfect woodland retreat if you’re looking for more cosiness than a larger Bothy. These comfortable huts are perfect for a romantic retreat or for families with young children. With its covered veranda it has excellent barbequing conditions all year round, so there’s no excuse about rain! Those staying in the woodland huts have access to a private bathroom within our beautiful Victorian style Bathhouse.





We try to provide as much as we can but you will need toiletries, towels, food, outdoor clothing and a torch (its pitch black at night in the woods). In regards to food, you can bring your own, or book a meal at our new café bar (open weekends and school holidays pre-booking essential). It’s only 15 minutes’ walk to shops and York is 20 minutes’ drive.

When you arrive at camp you are given an allocation of, firelighters, and matches, we have a log store onsite where you can get wood and charcoal. During cold weather you will have to wrap up warm, preferably in layers, and don’t forget your wellies!

Bring your own or pick up supplies at our local farm shop (5 minutes’ drive), or we have a stunning café / bar, using delicious local produce.

If you do want to bring your own food, or else get food delivered to the camp, either (Sainsbury’s and Asda deliver to the camp which helps increase car boot space!) cook by BBQ, kitchen hobs or in our clay oven on site. Guests have a lot of fun creating their own pizzas and once the clay oven has heated up, it will cook food in a matter of minutes!
Catering also available for Large Groups please enquire.

Jollydays is a fabulous place to visit with kids, there is something special about spending time in nature and the woods have a magic all of their own. We deliberately keep things simple – our “entertainment complex” consists of a wooden Wendy house and a couple of rope swings! However a couple of minutes walk away is Northwood Trail – England’s first fairy sanctuary, with a magical fairywood and enchanting fairy museum – with the largest collection of fairy artefacts in the world – perfect for grown-ups as well as kids!

We’ve hosted hundreds of groups over the years and Jollydays is the most idyllic place to celebrate – it feels like we are deep in the wilds, but we’re just a short hop from the incredible city of York – with all its many and varied charms. We can accommodate groups as small as 6 and as large as 40. Like most glamping sites we do have restrictions in school holidays, however if you are stuck with holiday dates, please check out our sister woodland camp www.northstarclub.co.uk which has no such restrictions.
