Catgill farm has been our family home for the past 60 years, originally run as a dairy farm by Grandad Ken. In 2013 Ken’s grandson Oliver returned to Catgill to the cottage where he was born and had the idea of opening a campsite. It was not easy to sell his idea to his Grandad but he agreed and the campsite opened in 2014.
“We hoped people would love it here as much as we do” said Oliver, it turns out they do and the campsite has grown enormously in popularity over the past 5 years. It’s an amazing place for families there is so much to do; Bolton Abbey is only 1Km away and Hesketh Farm Park is literally over the road.
The site is also close to the Dalesway footpath and there are numerous cycle routes including the famous Tour de France and Tour de Yorkshire routes. Each year we have added new features to the site, we started with a high quality amenity block and a field. Ken would welcome guests into his living room to check in.
With their fourth anniversary on the horizon, Wigwam® Holidays Crowtree is one of the success stories for Wigwam® Holidays, the nationwide glamping accommodation provider.
The site, based near Spalding, South Lincolnshire, opened with six Running Water Deluxe Wigwam® Cabins in July 2015.
Owned and run by Patrick and Anne Mews, the site is home to a working farm including cattle and faithful farm dog, Bella.
Their beautiful site is close to the River Welland and is THE place to switch off, relax and lose oneself in this rural location.
Co-owner Patrick said: “It is hard to believe it’s nearly four years since we opened! Time has flown by.
“Like many in the farming sector, making money just from the farm has become a real challenge in recent years.
A NORTHAMPTONSHIRE-BASED luxury glamping venture has completed its next phase of expansion as it opens the doors to a new onsite café.
After launching Country Bumpkin in Great Oxendon in June 2017, childhood friends and owners Jenny Lyon and Lara Collis opened the new café last month to complement the site’s award-winning farm shop and three luxury rustic yurts, which sleep between two and six people.
The glamping site on Waterloo Cottage Farm is eco-friendly and has features like solar panels - which power electricity in the yurts - a log burner, a wood fired hot tub, and composting toilets.
Two alpaca farmers from Ilfracombe have transformed a disused, centuries-old threshing barn into luxury, disabled-friendly holiday accommodation.
Thought to be one of very few bespoke disabled-friendly holiday lets of its size in the country, Kate and Simon Brookes turned their empty stone barn into luxury holiday accommodation with the help of just one labourer.
The property has been awarded the highest level of accessibility standard by Visit Britain and a 4* gold quality award rating.
