We just want to reassure guests that deposits for any bookings made which are affected by the Coronavirus outbreak can be carried forward for up to year from the date of your trip and we may look to extend this if needed as the situation evolves. Please contact us directly to discuss individual bookings or for more information. Many thanks

We’re undoubtedly living through some very challenging times at the moment, but we like so many others want to try and do our bit, so here’s a little something for you to have a think about… We’ve decided that as our contribution to the inspiring ‘National effort’ we’d like to offer 20 completely free 1 night stays to those most deserving as nominated by you, to be taken once we’ve all come through the other side. We hope that you understand that as its looking to be a pretty lean year for us, these would need to exclude weekends or school holidays and are subject to availability, but the good news is that each free 1 nights stay is for up to 4 people and can be taken right up to the end of 2021. You can nominate absolutely anyone that you like, be that one of our incredible NHS workers, a selfless Carer, an inspiring volunteer, someone particularly badly affected by the crisis or anyone you think in need of a much needed relaxing getaway to look forward to once we’ve all got through this. To submit your nominations please email info@swaledaleyurts.com with the header ‘Nomination’ and then enclose the name of your nominee and the reason for the nomination. We will keep nominations open for as long as lockdown is in place and then at whatever point the Government deems it safe for us to reopen we will announce the winners on our Facebook Page (@swaledaleyurts) and share all of the inspiring stories behind the winning nominees.

We're delighted to have been awarded second place (highly commended) in the 2018 White Rose Tourism Awards in the category of 'Best Holiday Park'!!!

A warm welcome awaits you at Swaledale Yurts, where stunning scenery and breath-taking waterfalls provide the backdrop to our 5 Mongolian Yurts, nestled on the banks of the River Swale, right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

We aim to offer a unique and memorable experience, combining the joys of a night under canvas in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, with warmth, home comforts and delicious meals served to your door, allowing you to completely relax and unwind.
