I found it quite difficult to find, not well sign posted. Once found however we were greeted, and told which tent we would be staying in. It exceeded my expectations, very large, nicely knitted out, nice log burning stove. Each tent is pitched in its own woodland and they are not close together so you have total privacy. The children... More

After reading the last few reviews, we felt a bit dubious, after spending what we felt was quite a bit of money for a one night stay as a treat for my birthday. My advice is ignore them, Jollydays is great, something different and a world away from the hustle and bustle. I'm really glad that we chose to spend... More

This was a surprise for my best friends birthday We arrived and our tent was ready, we were given a little tin with matches and tea lights. So... More

We have just returned from our stay at the jolly days camping site. We paid for 2 nights but only stayed for one. On arrival we met by friendly helpful staff to show us where to go and give us tealights and a few camping essentials. We then made our way to our tent, when first entering the tent it... More

Dear Misha Thanks for your comments. Sorry to hear your stay not enjoyable, we state on our website and in all our literature sent out before your stay that electricity on site is limited and therefore there are no lights in some of the tents and therefore sufficient candles are provided. If the camp staff had been made aware of... More

We arrived on a cold and rainy day, typical British weather, at the end of May at around 4.25pm. We were met by someone, who informed us that he wasn't sure if the 'tent' was ready! Even though check in is from 4pm.. He jumped in his quad and we followed him to where the tent was. As you can... More

Great communication and helpful staff from the moment I booked until I left. Facilities brilliant. Beds so comfy! Showers super hot! Camp fire - amazing social space. We used the clay pizza oven which was... More

The team at Jollydays (at the Buttercrambe site where I was) have really cracked it. Fabulous site teeming with wildlife, amazing huge lodge tents really cleverly set up, as much hot water on demand as you like. Really comfy beds, woodburning stove, kitchen. Some things for kids to do, but not too much, to encourage their ingenuity and imagination.

Went with a group of friends, most of which had never been camping before and were quite girly. We had an amazing time. The tent was huge, there was a stove in the tent which kept it warm as even though it was the end of May start of June the weather wasn't amazing. We had loads of home comforts... More

This is our third visit to Jollydays in the last 5 years. Every time we've come, we can see many changes have taken place, all for the better.

“Britain’s finest camping experience” Janey Lee Grace, Radio 2 DJ and Best Selling Author This multi award-winning camp was set up by design couple Carolyn and Christian Van Outersterp who had previously masterminded London’s stylish restaurant bar and discreet celebrity hang out CVO Firevault.Jollydays Luxury Camping is the culmination of the Van Outersterp’s 15-year dream to combine a love of camping and chic hotels – it’s an extension of their simplified lifestyle – beautiful surroundings, great food and socialising around a roaring log fire.For the kids it’s heaven on earth (even those addicted to their Playstations).“Fantastic, brilliant… I feel like the favourite son of a Bedouin prince – it’s amazing”. Alexander Armstrong, Comedian and TV Presenter.This is a unique British Camp with a lovely communal feel – a tea tent and campfire are at its heart and the camp appeals to families, couples and groups.The Deluxe Lodges are particularly superb, they have huge wood burners, 4 poster beds, fridges, roll top baths, loos, fully equipped kitchen and an outside dining area.Jollydays is ideally situated close to York (less than 2 hours from Kings Cross), close to the Yorkshire Wolds, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Moors National Park. ... more   less
