At Swinton Bivouac they love all things luxurious and rustic, sustainable and thoughtful. The site is located three miles from Masham in the sweeping landscape of the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate in the Yorkshire Dales. The local landmark of Druid’s Temple, an intriguing 18th century folly, is located in the woodland adjacent to Bivouac. This off grid accommodation consists of six Tree Lodges and seven Meadow Yurts, above the reception area is the cosy The Loft & The Snug.

Try glamping the luxurious way with the Tree Lodges at Swinton Bivouac. Sleeping up to 7 people, kids love the triple bunk beds, with a stargazing window on the upper mezzanine with king size bed, 3 single beds on the middle bunk and a hideaway on the lower bunk with double bed. The rest of the Tree Lodge is taken up with an open plan, well equipped kitchen area and a comfortable and homely lounge area where guests can enjoy the warmth from the fire, the twinkle of the fairy lights and candlelight, or relax together over a delicious meal prepared on the gas hob. A separate room houses the bathroom which comprises of a flushing toilet, shower and sink. There is no electricity, so we recommend you bring a torch!

Meadow Yurts, which sleep up to 5 people, are perfect for those who want to try camping, but still want some home comforts. Watch the sunset on the wooden veranda with stunning views over the valley, equipped with sheltered outdoor seating with fire pit and an area for boules and swing ball. The wood burner, which keeps the yurts nice and toasty, and sink take up one portion of the yurt, while a comfortable living area fills the remaining space providing a calm environment to unwind after an active day out. All yurts have an adjoining W.C. There is no electricity, so we recommend you bring a torch!

The Meadow field is home to a communal hot tub, which can be hired privately for your party, a Weber BBQ Kitchen, a communal kitchen area fully equipped for your family BBQ, and use of a camping kitchen with gas hobs. Located next to the yurt field, The Bistro Café provides uncomplicated dishes with local produce, warm and alcoholic beverages and internet access.
