  • Acorn Glade is a romantic grown-ups only glamping retreat, located on a beautiful lake-side meadow and woodland site on the fringes of the Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds. Our compact glamping site only has one log cabin, two yurts and one gypsy wagon and is set in about three acres of land.

    Acorn Glade is a designated Local Wildlife Site, with a private still water fishing lake (for use exclusively by guests). 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, a sort of camping in style. For your comfort, the yurts or log cabin have a real double or king size bed, duvets, pillows and bedding with wood burning stoves.

    The 100 year old Gypsy Wagon has an authentic coal burning stove and a quirky 4ft double bed. Our communal kitchen is equipped with gas hob, microwave and fridge together with all the pans, crockery and cutlery that you’ll need. Guests are encouraged to relax, enjoy the peace and tranquillity; watch and listen to the wildlife, to explore their natural surroundings, before slipping into comfy beds in either the charming yurts, cosy gypsy wagon or well-equipped snug log cabin. 

  • POPPY & DAISY YURT:

    Set in the wild flower meadow overlooking the lake, all our Yurts are 16' diameter and are constructed with a unique wooden frame and covered with canvas.

The yurts are off-grid so no electricity and TVs. There are no toilets in the yurts, however the amenity block (called “The Chicken Shed”) is less than 50m from each unit. Both yurts have real log burning stoves with an initial free basket of seasoned logs. More logs are available with a small payment via an honesty box.
