A relaxing West Yorkshire getaway with bell tents on sprawling moorland

As its name suggests, Hob Hey Hideaways wants to provide you with a place to slink away from the trappings of busy modern life. With two bell tents pitched in an open meadow, this new West Yorkshire campsite has already been utilised by guests for various events outside the city. And you can see why many have already viewed this as an alternative spot to gather with friends; its secluded surroundings are far removed from a dull hotel room or a claustrophobic apartment. This is simple but thoughtful camping in the countryside.

Hob Hey features two bell tents, named SonElla’s Slumber and Deb’s Den, to hide away in, located in one of the sprawling fields in the small and sleepy dispersed village of Norland. An electric shower and portaloo located in the site's 'shower shed' and 'tin toilet' is shared between the tents, while the 'cubby kitchen' will allow you to rustle up a meal with its electric hob, microwave, utensils, kettle, toaster, fridge, and freezer. For those looking for a communal meal, there's an outdoor eating area for food cooked with either the supplied barbecue or the fire pit given to each tent.

Your picturesque and remote surroundings make it an ideal spot to plant your bags and go for a long country walk, though venture out a little further in your car and you'll be able to trek through the National Trust's Marsden Moor, with the lush landscape being 10 miles away from the site. This stunning area of natural beauty covers more than 5,000 acres, with roots in prehistory and vast moorland filled with an abundance of West Yorkshire's flora and fauna. A 15-minute drive and you can get to Shibden Hall, a Grade II listed historic house that was home to famed English diarist Anne Lister, and was the focus of the BBC drama series 'Gentleman Jack'.

For far more local delights, site owner Jo prides herself on being an accommodating and friendly host, offering bookable afternoon tea, a Farmhouse Breakfast to cook on the grill, Yorkshire s’mores, or a marshmallow melting pack to cook over your fire pit. These simple but special comforts have made Hob Hey Hideaway a popular destination for those holding celebrations thus far despite its infancy — the site was only brought to life this year — and Jo plans to hold many, many more in the near future.

From the host
Hob Hey Hideaways has been beautifully designed, brand new 2021. The site houses three gorgeous bell tent units ‘SonElla’s Slumber’ and ‘Deb’s Den’, ‘Willow’s Wallow’ making this a peaceful and ‘socially distanced’ safe site. Whether you arrive with friends or family, or choose a peaceful rest for yourselves, these tents have been carefully created with comfortable real double beds and single blow ups with mattress toppers, all with fresh quilts and soft bedding included. You can add an extra person to your tent at a cost of £25 per night. Up to 4/5 people in each tent. I run the site myself and I am very approachable, accommodating and dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible. It has been my dream to create this space and I am extremely proud of what is on offer for you. Norland is a quiet peaceful village. In the heart of nature surrounded by sheep, horses and donkeys. You can enjoy, walking on the moors, cycling or fine dinning, all available and within walking distance. Well behaved dogs are welcome! £5 per night per dog The sunsets recently have been amazing, enjoy these from your tent doorway or at your fire pit (provided) with a pack of T’moors (my own version and Yorkshire take on the American S’mores) Venture further and you may wish to visit Shibden Hall, the home of Anne Lister (10 mins by car) as seen in the famous TV show. “Gentleman Jack” Visit the film locations of the extremely popular “Happy Valley” minutes away. Halifax Piece Hall, a quadrangle of boutique shops and bars (10 mins) is a short drive and Through the summer there are many amazing gigs here. This is a walkers and nature lovers paradise.
