Bivouac is located around an old stone farmhouse five miles from Masham, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, a picturesque spot on the Swinton Estate with stunning views all year round.
At this off grid accommodation you can choose between oversize tents (Meadow Yurts), wooden cabins (Woodland Shacks), and bunk beds in the brick dormitory (Bunk Barn). Bursting with charm and stunning views Biovouak is the place where you always wanted to spend a peaceful and relaxing week in absolute heaven.
Bivouac is all about getting back to basics and enjoying the natural things in life, there is an abundance of local places to explore and an array of activities to get stuck into. The historic folly Druid’s Temple and the surrounding woodland makes for a fantastic starting point for any number of excursions across the moorland, or an ideal location for a short stroll drinking in the natural beauty of the forest and spectacular views.
The beating heart of the operation is the Café. a beautifully converted and welcoming barn with a chandelier of mismatched bulbs, a mural of British birds and lots of books and board games. On warm summer days visitors can sit out on the patio and enjoy a cup of tea or light snack while being soothed by the spectacular views down into the valley.
So why ask for more when you can gaze at the stars through the skylight set into each shack ceiling? Light up your stove and laze in your antique rocking chair. That’s a luxury!
