Acorn Glade is glamping located on the fringes of the Vale of York and the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, is a romantic couples retreat, offering a chic, but healthy outdoor living lifestyle for the truly pampered camper. The glamping site is set in about three acres of land and is a Local Wildlife Site, with a private still water fishing lake (for use by guests only). The accommodation is ideal for couples and offers a haven of back-to-basics bliss away from the stresses of modern day life. The emphasis is on comfortable off-grid eco living, but with an outdoorsy feel; a sort of camping in style (‘glamorous camping’). Just imagine, sitting outside your yurt, Gypsy wagon or log cabin with a glass of wine and a good book in the evening sunshine, listening to the wildlife, watching fish feeding or the dragonflies hovering over the lake.
OUR GLAMPING RETREATS
Within Poppy & Daisy Yurts and Bluebell Log Cabin, there are proper double/king-size beds with warm duvets (extra blankets available). All bedding is provided, but please bring your own towels (unless you have arranged a towel bail package with us). There is a basic gas camping stove for making hot drinks and snacks. For cooking meals, you can use the well-equipped communal kitchen ‘The Chicken Shed’, where there are gas hobs, kettle, fridge and a microwave. The yurts and log-cabin are off-grid, however there are solar fairy lights automatically activated in the evening to light your accommodation and switched solar-powered lamps. We provide wind-up lanterns, but please your own torches for when walking to the local pub in the evening as the road is unlit and has no footpath.
POPPY & DAISY YURTS
Set in the wild flower meadow overlooking the lake, all our Yurts are 16′ diameter and are made in the UK to withstand the English weather…wind, rain and sunshine! All have log fires.
BLUEBELL LOG CABIN
Set in a woodland area overlooking the lake, the log cabin is a traditional solid timber log cabin construction (with double glazed windows and doors) and is made for all year round living. The log cabin is equipped with a log burning stove & a en-suite eco-composting toilet with sink.
ROSE GYPSY WAGON
Set in a woodland area overlooking the lake, Rose Gypsy Wagon is a 100 year old renovated traditional bow top wagon with feature stain glass window. The wagon features a cosy small pull out double bed (which is accessible with a bit of a climb!). A double duvet and pillows are included, which means that you can bring along your own bed linen or hire these upon booking.
THE CHICKEN SHED
This is our main arrival area and wash room, with toilets and showers and comfortable kitchen facilities. At Acorn Glade we are ‘keen to be green’ and, with our commitment to a sustainable environment, we are trying to do as much as we can to help you to enjoy a low carbon holiday, hence electricity and hot water is generated from renewable energy. The Chicken Shed kitchen has a couple of gas hobs, kettle, microwave and a fridge for your perishable items. There is a dedicated electric point for recharging mobile phones. We have invested in many water saving devices (such as push button water taps) around the site to eliminate waste but still keep your stay enjoyable. In the evening, energy-saving lighting is complimented by solar lighting to assist you in the dark. We have a combined toilet and hot shower which is suitable for the semi-ambulant, but may not be suitable for disabled.
The Acorn Glade Workshop offers you the opportunity to try out activities or learn new skills, such as art and crafts, sewing, crochet, felting, sculpture and pottery. Workshops on selected dates or by prior arrangement, please contact Julie directly.
WILDLIFE AND RURALITY
The open still water and woodland area of Acorn Glade is a designated Local Wildlife Site. Within this wildlife haven you may see migrating birds, wild fowl, dragonflies and damselflies, as well as fish and amphibians. For those wishing to wile the time away, there is an abundance of fish within a small unspoiled still-water course fishing lake (day fishing pass available upon request, however, you will require an official rod licence, available from the Post Office). For avid bird watchers, there is a dedicated bird watching hide nestled in the woodland area and a variety of bird nesting boxes located around the site
