Luxury Glamping Accommodation at Skelwith Fold

The whole family can enjoy glamping together in luxury and style, as the Family Hideaways can sleep up to four adults with two double beds. Meanwhile, up to two children can sleep in the single beds in the exciting mezzanine bedroom level!

When you fold up the beds for the daytime, you can kick back on the large, relaxing L-shaped sofa and enjoy a family meal around the dining table – cooked in the fully equipped galley-style kitchen, complete with oven, hobs, grill and microwave. That’s assuming that you don’t head out to one of the many fantastic restaurants in the area, of course!
