Jollydays CampingView map
Nostalgia with mod cons
hen did camping become so cool? When companies like Jollydays vetoed nylon sleeping bags and A-frames, and introduced four poster beds, wood burning stoves and sofas to the great outdoors – that’s when.
Although a fairly recent phenomenon, posh camping or glamping is proving a runaway success with couples and families alike. And it’s easy to see why - you get all the good stuff like being at one with nature without the leaking tent, freezing temperatures and cold bean suppers. In fact, a glamping weekend at Jollydays feels like an actual holiday rather than an endurance test.
With 10 tents located in a 200 acre wood, it’s certainly not crowded and with most things provided you don’t need to worry about squeezing camping equipment into your rucksack.
If you go down to the woods, you’ll even find a small clay where you can bake your own bread. And where better to sample the best local produce and your own bread than around a roaring log fire with owls hooting up at the stars?
After a good’s night sleep amongst freshly-laundered sheets, you’ll awake suitably energised to make the most of the North York Moors National Park and the beautiful Howardian Hills. The hardest thing is tearing yourself away from the comfort of your bed and the dancing silhouettes of the local wildlife on the cotton canvas.
