Wigwam Holidays Forcett Grange - winner of "Best Glamping Destination 2023 - North Yorkshire" - is the perfect base for an idyllic and peaceful hot tub glamping holiday in North Yorkshire. It’s a hidden gem of a site, renowned for its unique setting and spacious cabins.


Set within the grounds of a historic quarry - with roots dating back to the Iron Ages - Forcett Grange is surrounded by countryside, allowing you to disconnect from daily life and immerse yourself in the relaxing sounds of nature. This tranquility is complimented by totally silent Scandinavian bathing in wood fired hot tubs. 


This isolated, yet well-connected location is ideal for those wishing to visit the market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle or adventure in the Yorkshire Dales. After spending the day exploring, guests look forward to returning to the sanctuary of the quarry setting; its walls and native woodland creating a natural hideaway.

Visit the Stunning Georgian Town of Richmond

Before returning to your cosy cabin, be sure to check out The Station for local film, food and art.

The Bowes Museum in ‘Barney’

With fantastic views over the Tees Gorge, The Bowes Museum sits on the outskirts of the charming working market town of Barnard Castle, also known as ‘Barney’, which is full of independent shops, antique emporiums and award-winning cuisine.

The chateau is known as the V&A of the North and it’s easy to see why. The Bowes Museum is well known for its wide-ranging exhibitions and events, making it a wonderful space to enjoy the galleries. Recently the museum has played host to exhibitions from Goya, David Hockney and the YSL exhibition. The museum’s iconic Silver Swan – musical automation from the 1700s plays every day at 2pm and it’s worth visiting the museum for this whimsical wonder alone!

The museum and grounds host a wide range of seasonal events - so there’s always something happening, no matter what time of year you’re visiting. Christmas markets and outdoor summer theatre productions all take place so check the website to plan a fantastic day out.
