About ten miles north of the ancient city of York, the peaceful village of Sherriff Hutton is home to a gap-toothed ruined castle and a campsite which is in many ways in an ideal location – handy for both the city and some of the best of the glorious North Yorkshire countryside.
Situated on the edge of the Howardian Hills AONB, between the Vale of York and the North York Moors National Park, the glamping here is comfortable and well-appointed, with two pre-pitched tents offering a great balance between home comforts and outdoor living, and equipped with everything you need for a fully-fledged family holiday: two bedrooms with proper beds (the tents can comfortably sleep four adults or a family of six), a fully stocked kitchenette and an extending living area with an outside verandah on which you can nurse a drink while ruminating on the day's activities.
The site is prettily planted with trees, and very well maintained, and has good, up-to-date facilities. It's also just a mile or so outside Sherriff Hutton village, which has a couple of pubs and and a post office.
As regards things, to do, the surrounding countryside is green and gloriously gentle, great for walking and cycling but with a host of high-grade attractions too, not least Castle Howard, one of the grandest stately homes in the country. There are also the peaceful ruins of Kirkham Priory, the nineteenth-century Benedictine abbey at Ampleforth (famous for its school), open to visitors and selling its own cider from its shop and visitor centre, and the restored eighteenth-century of Howsham Mill, which has been recently restored and mounts interesting exhibitions on renewable energy. All in all a perfect place for a peaceful glamping break.

Your time spent…where it matters
Time away with family & friends is great, but let’s be honest - it can sometimes be hectic to even think about!
Ready Camp takes away some of the stresses and hassles of camping - having a pre-erected, canvas-wrapped haven with real beds, a kitchen and dining area. There’s no need to fill the car rammed to the rafters with an endless supply of ‘just in cases’. We give you back the time to do the fun things together with your friends and family.
Pack your bedding & a sense of adventure
Walk into a comfortable haven with cosy furnishings and oodles of little luxuries. With two bedrooms, an open plan living/dining area where you can wine and dine to your hearts content or put your feet up on the comfy settee after a long day’s adventure.
The Kitchen area includes a fridge, microwave and hob, along with basic cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. (We’ve even supplied the corkscrew!)
When it comes to light’s out…we’ve even included a torch for those midnight toilet trips, or just to make funny shadows on the tent!
