Jollydays Luxury Camping – Yorkshire

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.

Jollydays Luxury Camping have 22 tents on site, 5 Bell tents, 2 Superior Bells, 8 Luxury lodges and 7 Deluxe lodges. We have created a unique tented camp, close to nature and the rhythms of the season – A Journey back to simpler times, a place to talk, laugh, relax and reflect, hot showers and BBQ’s, etc.

By “normal” camping standards, Jollydays is luxurious – with 4-poster beds, wood burners, toilets, roll-top baths, candelabras, hot showers, BBQ’s and kitchens. We are not comparable with a hotel, so you won’t find sockets, tvs’, lights etc – It is a tent with no insulation.
