Swinton Bivouac is set amongst truly breathtaking scenery at Ilton, near Masham in North Yorkshire. Our glamping accommodation is suitable for couples, friends and family who want a break away from the hustle and bustle of modern day living. Our yurts and tree lodges are in a beautiful part of the Swinton Estate, which covers over 20,000 acres of the Yorkshire countryside. We have the Yorkshire Dales on our doorstep and the stunning scenery of Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Tree Lodges: We have six secluded lodges available and they are set amongst a pretty woodland setting. Each lodge can sleep up to 7 people in a king size bed, double bed and three single beds. Each lodge has a range and gas hob for cooking and the hot water is heated by the wood burner. Our tree lodges are designed to have a back to nature feel, there is no electricity so please remember to bring torches. There is something truly magical about staying in our lodges and listening to the sounds of wildlife around you, yet being only a 5 minute walk to our site shop and cafe for any essentials.
Meadow Yurts: Nestled into the side of a hill with sweeping views of the North Yorkshire Countryside and a short stroll from the Bivouac shop and cafe is our small community of seven Meadow Yurts. They each can sleep up to 5 people in a double and three single beds. A wood burning stove can be found in each yurt and we provide wood to fuel your fire. Just like our lodges, they are designed to be a haven of tranquillity and a place to escape the noise of modern living. You will need to bring a torch as they have no electric, however when the night skies are clear, you will truly reap the benefits of this and enjoy gazing up at the starry sky.
Bed linen is provided in both our glamping accommodations. Our yurts are suitable for all and we have two dog friendly lodges available for those who bring their canine companions. You are welcome to wander through the glorious woodlands, exploring the site at your leisure. Dogs can also join you while you enjoy in to a cup of Yorkshire tea and a slice of home-made cake in the café after stretching those legs with a long walk.
The Bivouac cafe is the perfect waterhole for our resident guests and visiting walkers, families and friends. With snacks and uncomplicated dishes made from local produce, feel free to pop in for coffee and cake, a light lunch or make an evening of it and enjoy a delicious meal in this distinctive setting.
