Alum House, Littlebeck
A dreamy glamping haven with hot tubs and a tranquil river, beautifully set within the North York Moors National Park, close to the seaside town of Whitby.
A charming rural hamlet in the North York Moors National Park, Littlebeck is characterised by timeless green views and the shimmering Little Beck itself, a tranquil waterway that flows into the River Esk.
Here, you'll discover a small collection of gorgeous Lotus Belle glamping tents, each one secluded with luxurious private facilities and sumptuous treats, for the ultimate escape into nature.
Roe Deer is a palatial, six-metre ‘tent' that feels more like an indulgent hotel suite! You and your loved one can enjoy complete privacy here, in your very own meadow right by the river... total bliss.
Not only is your own shower room just a few steps away, but you'll also have a wood-fired hot tub to help you greet the sunset and stars. Why not order an ice-bucket and a bottle of Prosecco to make your evening complete?
Jenny Wren also features a wood-fired hot tub, a well-equipped outdoor kitchen, and a log-fired stove to help give your evenings an irresistible glow. A surprisingly spacious five-metre haven, you can relax and unwind among your very own wildlife-steeped glade.
Last but not least, Barn Owl is another deceptively roomy five-metre ‘tent', pitched in a serene corner of the site. Boasting a kingsize bed with a luxury mattress, outside awaits a barbecue for a sizzling al fresco supper by sunset.
In the mood for a treat? There are a range of extras available to order for your stay, from cream cakes to baskets of sweets, balloons, and even huge ice-cubes for your afternoon G&Ts!
You could even invite family or friends to join you on your break, as the site is large enough to accommodate another tent-for-two... just ask.
While you're welcome just to relax and unwind on site, if you feel like exploring the area there are some beautiful North York Moors walking trails to discover.
Not much of a walker? Take a nostalgic trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway instead, which leads through some amazing ‘living museum' stations across the heart of the moors, all the way to the market town of Pickering.
You could also head for the coast with a day-trip to bustling Whitby, just four miles away... it's almost law to order a classic fish-and-chip supper while you're there! Robin Hood's Bay is also close by; a quaint, ancient fishing village on the Heritage Coast with a sandy beach, and a parade of cafés and pubs to while away some well-deserved holiday time in.
