Perfect holidays, perfect glamping, perfect Yorkshire
Wigwam Sites are ideal for those getting-away-from-it holidays. Yorkshire is a region of historical and geographical importance and beauty. Craggy coastlines melt into mystical moors and fairytale forests. On a glamping break in Yorkshire, you’ll discover the true hospitality of Yorkshire people (spoiler: they are amazing). Award-winning IPA and gin is served across the region and with food festivals and farmers markets in abundance, you’ll see for yourself that there's a whole lot more to Yorkshire cuisine than the humble Yorkshire Pudding and a slab of Wensleydale cheese - though we highly recommend having those too.
