Eco-chic luxury camping in boutique canvas lodges with four poster beds, set in two hundred acres of private woodland near York.
A multi award-winning glamping site, set up by design couple Carolyn & Christian Van Outersterp who had previously masterminded London’s stylish and discreet celebrity hang out CVO Firevault.
Jollydays Luxury Camping is the culmination of the Van Outersterp’s 15 year dream to create an unique woodland camp, it’s an extension of their simplified lifestyle - beautiful surroundings, great food and socialising around a roaring log fire.
The 200 acre woodland is the star of the show, it is a magical place for children and adults alike and summer 2019 sees the opening of a stunning fairy trail and stylish café - which guests can access free of charge.
This is a unique British Camp, nestled in woodland close to the historic city of York, it has a lovely communal feel, a tea tent and campfire are at its heart and the camp appeals to families, couples and groups.
The Woodland tents sleep up to 6 and have huge wood burners, 4 poster beds, fridges, roll top baths, loos, fully equipped kitchen and an outside dining area.
Jollydays Glamping is ideally situated close to York (less than 2 hours from Kings Cross), close to the Yorkshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Howardian Hills and the Yorkshire Moors National Park.
The stunning Heritage Coast is 45minutes drive and quaint market towns abound, this is a truly amazing location for a short break or long holiday.
The Van Outersterps have networked with a large range of local suppliers, so you arrange anything from food delivered to your tent, to bushcraft, wine tasting and even polo!
This is a large camp and in addition to 15 large tents there are 4 cosy Woodcutter Huts - larger than shepherds huts they can sleep 2 - 4 guests.
“Fantastic, brilliant I feel like the favourite son of a Bedouin prince its amazing.” Alexander Armstrong, Comedian and TV Presenter.
Jollydays is all about woodland life and the woods team with wildlife, badgers, deer hares and a over 200 species of birds. It is a place to retreat from the pressures of modern life and rediscover the joys of simple living, great food and great company. An eco camp with limited electricity and we have a Gold award from the Green Tourism scheme.
A small off licence onsite sells a range of local beers, soft drinks and wines. Summer 2019 sees the opening of a fairy wood attraction and café, one of the first of its kind in the UK. All large tents have their own showers and kitchens in the tent and woodcutter huts have kitchens but use communal washing up and shower facilities. A large tea tent is ideal for wet days or phone charging and the communal camp fire has a canopy so can be used in all weathers. All bedding is provided.
We have a very low electric usage and reed bed toilet system, so we process our own waste. He have been holders of a Green Tourism award (Gold) for many years.
We have logs, charcoal and tealights on site but you may bring your own.
We network with local suppliers and have online brochures full of ideas for both groups and families -activities which guests can organise, some within the woods or many more off site. We are perfectly placed in a beautiful rural location, yet just 15 minutes from York and all the amazing facilities this award winning city has to offer.
