3 units · Glamping1 acre · Kirkby Stephen, England
Our three, brand new wood and canvas yurts are nestled in our private, woodland hotel garden beside the beautiful conservation (SSSI) river of Scandal Beck. Just a short drive from The Lake District, The Yorkshire and Durham Dales as well as The Scottish Border, we are perfectly located for you to explore. The yurts themselves are individually decorated with full size furniture, electricity and double beds. The yurts are all located in the garden of The Black Swan Hotel, Ravenstonedale, a multi award-winning hotel, restaurant and bar; recipient of 2 AA Rosettes as well as AA pub of the year for England 2018/19. As part of your stay in our yurts you will receive a full cooked breakfast and buffet option included in the price for 2 people in our hotel restaurant. We like to think of ourselves as a cosy home from home with a relaxed dining atmosphere throughout. We are very dog friendly in the hotel, restaurant, bar and yurts so please bring your furry family members. Our beautiful woodland is also home to red squirrels (which are seen daily), protected, freshwater crayfish in the river, an otter (seen very infrequently but the nemesis of our ducks), 6 Indian runner ducks, free range chickens and our two cockerels! (Dogs are very welcome but are to be kept on a lead whilst in the woodland itself). We are very dog friendly and charge an additional fee of £15 for 1 dog/ £20 for 2 dogs for an additional cleaning fee and for some dog friendly goodies such as poop bags and treats. The price of this yurt is based on an occupancy of 2 people. Any other people who will be staying on the sofa bed will add a charge of £40 per person per night for breakfast and their stay. All yurts come with electrical battery pack, chargeable lanterns, tea/coffee, homemade biscuits, log burning stoves, towels, full breakfast included from the hotel, an outdoor seating area and access to our outdoor toasty warm woodland shower as well as our very cute, wooden toilet cabin. Hairdryers are available in the hotel for your use.

Yurts in Northumberland National Park guide

Overview

Harbouring a population of just 2,000 within its 405 square miles (1049 square kilometres), Northumberland National Park is the UK’s most secluded. Lined by over 1,100 kilometres of footpaths, cycle trails, and bridleways (and home to Hadrian’s Wall, the Hareshaw Linn waterfall, and the Sycamore Gap tree), the park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Plus, the lack of light pollution makes this a prime spot for stargazing—in the right conditions, it’s even possible to see the Milky Way and Andromeda with your own eyes. A variety of camping options offer something for everyone, from secluded wildlife-watching camps in the north to family-friendly working farms in the south.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for sightseers: Hadrian’s Wall Campsite offers back-to-basics camping just 20 minutes’ walk from the UNESCO-listed landmark.
  • Best for families: Herding Hill Farm has a petting farm, playground, and cornershop on site, plus tent pitches, luxury lodges, and a BBQ hut.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Hadrian’s Wall is one of the main draws of the region, so if you’re looking for last-minute accommodation, consider heading into the park’s more northerly reaches.
  2. Walk-ins aren’t accepted everywhere, so it’s advisable to book ahead.
  3. Not all campsites remain open during the low season, but those that do usually have pitches available.

When to go

As the UK’s least populated park, visitors can enjoy tranquility and seclusion year-round, though the sights and delights of summer still bring their fair share of holidaymakers. Adventurers who aren’t put off by a cold wind will find plenty to explore during the winter season, which begins in October, when wintering birds arrive in the dozens and the remote landscape is blanketed by the occasional falling of snow.

Know before you go

  • Wheelchair-accessible attractions and viewpoints can be found across the park, including the Vindolanda Roman Fort, Walltown Country Park, and Cawfields Dark Sky Discovery Site.
  • Two park visitor centres offer advice, maps, and facilities: Walltown Visitor Centre and The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre, both near Hadrian’s Wall.
  • Payable car parks are available throughout, with the money going into the park’s upkeep. Some free car parks dot the park as well, notably at Lordenshaws Hillfort, Wedder Leap, and Harehaugh Picnic Site.
  • As with all of the UK’s outdoor attractions, the Countryside Code applies.
