Situated on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales National Park, Swinton Bivouac is part of the 20,000 acre Swinton Estate that boasts views over the moorland and valley below and is home to the Druid’s Temple folly constructed during the late 1800s.
At Swinton Bivouac, guests can stay in Tree lodges, hidden away in woodland a five-minute walk from the bivouac shop and cafe, or opt for one of the seven Mongolian-inspired Meadow Yurts with a panoramic viewpoint of North Yorkshire. Both of these accommodation options are un-electrified to provide a true rural experience. Guests who can’t exist without a reading light can stay in The Loft and The Snug on the first floor of a converted farmhouse. There’s also a private shower room with toilet.
Shower facilities, shop and the cafe are located in the farmhouse and barn. The Bivouac cafe offers snacks, coffee, cake and lunch including dishes made from local produce.
Groupon’s Guide To North Yorkshire
The largest county in England beckons with quaint spa towns, green pastures and hearty dining. In the traditional seaside town of Scarborough tourists may visit a Victorian spa, walk along the harbour or head to the 3000-year-old ruins of Scarborough Castle for some family photos.
Holidaymakers may also explore the historic spa town of Harrogate, where authentically styled Turkish baths, plunge pools and steam rooms beckon with quality leisure moments. In York, the largest medieval cathedral in all of Northern Europe may be admired before following the almost five-mile-long circuit of the City Walls.
