As the countdown to Christmas approaches, the celebrations and festivities in the Yorkshire Dales begin, making it the perfect time and place for a short family escape. Get yourself stuck into the merriment, with our glamping pods - the perfect excuse to make a short break of it. This year, our pods are extra special, decorated with festive trinkets and filled with cosy blankets to snuggle up on a chilly winter evening.
With the summer season gone, there’s still so much to do during the winter months in the Dales. Come to visit us for a weekend and spend the day in Leyburn at their Christmas Festival hosted on Saturday 7th December in the marketplace. There’s set to be carolling with Leyburn band, Christmas gift stalls and fairground rides, making it a lovely family day out. And you may bump into Santa there too!
As we all know the weather in Wensleydale is temperamental, but you’ll still find something to do for all the family. This year’s pantomime Aladdin is heading to the stage at Tennants on Wednesday 18th December to Sunday 29th with a star-studded cast bound to get the whole family into the Christmas spirit. Get your tickets here.
Also this Christmas, The Polar Express is coming to Yorkshire! Get your little ones into their pyjamas, and head down to the Wensleydale Railway for a night to remember. With its all-singing all-dancing cast, the train journeys up to the ‘North Pole’ with festive carols and hot chocolate, before returning to Santa’s workshop. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Mr Claus himself! Book your tickets here.
After a busy day, retreat into one of our pods, and cosy up with a film from our communal DVD library. With plenty of availably across all three of our pods in the run up to Christmas, there’s no better time for a cosy, family get away.
