Jolly Days Luxury Camping

Tired and stressed by the pace of urban life the Van Outersterps dream was to set up an eco-chic “glamping” business, which would nurture their own family life and support tourism in idyllic North Yorkshire. Jollydays was born in 2008 and was an immediate, runaway success; it has led the glamping revolution and helped transform our experience of the great British outdoors. Our glamping holidays attract many people; couples, groups, families, reunions, walkers, non campers, and the young and old. If you just want to escape and get away from it all, have a reunion, bring a corporate group and boost moral within the team, or celebrate a special event (or just life), Jollydays offers all this in a beautiful location. The tents are set over 15 acres of the 200 acre woodland. No tents are closer than 15 metres to each other and many much further than that. Being in a quiet woodland you can expect to hear the murmur of voices, occasional laughter and the natural wildlife, all adding to the feeling of escaping life. Our cool camping site has no permanent structures, and other than the odd wooden pole (and the buried bio digester dealing with effluent off-grid) nothing is attached into the ground, ensuring we tread lightly. We have up to 22 tents at present: 7 Deluxe tents, 8 Luxury lodge tents, 5 Bell tents and 2 Superior bells. We use minimal electricity and an increasing proportion of our energy usage is sustainable. We do however use LPG gas to heat water (which is more energy efficient than electricity). Spent water is sent to a bio digester or reed beds and then released into the ground on site. Jollydays Luxury camping is a member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme, the only certification scheme validated by Visit Britain, through the International Centre for Responsible Tour.
Dogs and cats are not allowed on the site, except guide dogs.
