GLAMPING AT NORTH STAR

Glamping: "a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping."


I was surprised at how little people knew what glamping was when I told them I was going to spend the weekend in Yorkshire doing just that. The total city girl is showing here but the idea of camping scares me a little so glamping was definitely the best option to spend some time out in the woods without totally slumming it. 


We opted for Yorkshire after finding a good deal online and the journey getting there was half the adventure. By the time we arrived, it was dark and there were no visible signs directing us towards our cabin. Spending an hour driving through pitch black woods felt like something from a horror film but once we finally found the cabin, it felt like we had stepped into a 5 star lodge. The bathroom was out of this world and there was a lovely little fireplace inside to keep the bedroom warm. The next morning, we actually got to see our surroundings properly. We had a little porch where we sat and ate breakfast overlooking the peaceful woods where peacocks came and greeted us. It was great and after exploring the surrounding town, we came back to enjoy none other than a campfire. We grabbed a bottle of wine and a big bag of marshmallows and got the fire going under a sky full of stars. It was beautiful and one of my favourite nights ever. 


There was a shared cabin called The Woodshed, which was a communal living area filled with an amazing array of teas (I'm a bit of a tea geek so this was super exciting), coffees and hot chocolates and honestly, everything about this weekend was so great. I had no signal the whole weekend and it was so good to step away from my phone and wifi and just enjoy the company I had and the brisk, fresh air - it's so easy to forget to enjoy things like this and would really recommend glamping to anyone! It's so perfect at this time of year now; it really is fitting for the Autumn season. 



The surrouding areas near Yorkshire were great to visit as well, such as Knaresborough (where you will get the best fish and chips ever - no exaggeration)
I definitely recommend taking a little glamping trip, especially at this time of year. It's a perfect way to get into the Autumn feels.
