Catgill Farm Camping & Glamping

UK England North East England North Yorkshire Bolton Abbey

Family camping and glamping on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and a stone's throw from famous Bolton Abbey

Catgill Farm was first opened as a tents only campsite in 2014, and has grown to be one of the most popular campsites in the Yorkshire Dales. It's set in the rolling meadows just outside Bolton Abbey, and is near the remarkable ruins of Bolton Abbey Priory. Bolton Abbey village is a 15 minute stroll down the lane. There is still a simple farm at the heart of the campsite, with marshmallows are sold from the door – but there are now electric hook-ups for campervans, bell tents with hot tubs hidden in the trees and even a trio of timber pods with all mod-cons inside. Catgill Farm has a 2 night Minimum Stay during high season and be sure to book early.

The camping meadow at Catgill Farm can handle around 160 tents at any one time and there is plenty of space for children to play. Glamping pods, each sleeping six, offer an almost holiday cottage experience – think en-suite shower room, compact kitchen, a television and Wi-Fi – yet still boast the views and campfire-side evenings that every camper yearns for. Bell tents, meanwhile, keep things strictly under canvas but still boast the same main attraction as the pods – private wood-fired hot tubs for evenings bubbling beneath the stars. It’s a far cry from the rustic camping days of old!

Catgill Farm offers lots to of places to visit and places to eat nearby - it’s just a 15-minute walk along a footpath to the Devonshire Arms, with outdoor seating, good food and local beers. In the opposite direction, the Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream Factory is a half-hour stroll away. And, of course, if that sounds like too many calories the real luxury is healthy and free to everyone: the Dales Way footpath stretching just beyond the farm and miles upon miles of the Yorkshire Dales beyond for walks that all the family will enjoy.
