As you head over to the eastern edge of the Yorkshire Dales – “dales” from the Viking word dalr (valley) – the countryside becomes less rocky and rugged. Instead of hardcore hiking, think rolling greenery, and heather moorlands neighbouring picture-postcard villages like Pateley Bridge, Ripon and Masham. Little Seed Field – a brand new glampsite opened in 2017 by Joanne and Sean Nicholson – fits these surroundings like a glove, offering outdoor overnighting in a peaceful corner of a working dairy farm.
Three snug cabins are on offer, nestled amongst boulders, rushes and trees, ensuring the farm retains the natural wilderness of the unspoiled landscape. "We have worked hard to ensure that our wild deer, birds of prey and natural flora are disturbed as little as possible", says Joanne and Sean, which will strike joy into the heart of the eco-conscious glamper.
Inside, the octagonal and individually decorated cabins are surprisingly roomy, featuring beds, mattresses and a small selection of cutlery and crockery. With lighting, electrical points and a log stove all present and correct, glampers keep nice and toasty on those chilly Yorkshire evenings. The basic but well-maintained (and centrally-heated) amenity building houses wet rooms and a small kitchenette facility. Here, you can source water from the farms' natural spring, use the kettle and toaster, or gather wood for your crackling campfire.
Any negatives? Well, there are some hardships – let’s see, mobile signal can be hard to come by (there are very few areas where you can receive signal), and the farm can be quite exposed to the elements – so bring warm clothing, wellies and a torch! But between taking a fine Yorkshire Dales stroll – nearby Nidderdale Way comes highly recommended – and watching the sunset over the pastoral valley below, we’ll think you’ll manage.
