Child friendly glamping, North Yorkshire – Camping, Bell tents and Ecopods, Baxby Manor, York

About The Hideaway@Baxby Manor

Chill out in eco-friendly glamping in pods, hobbit houses or even the new luxurious treehouse in the heart of beautiful North Yorkshire.

With plenty of space for the kids to run and explore, this award winning campsite is a real away from it all treat. The little extras such as on-site coffee, breakfasts and BBQs delivered to your pitch, fire pits for every pitch, and warm, free showers (and a platinum award winning toilet block!) ensure the grown-ups also get a rest at The Hideaway .

Set within 110 acres of farmland you’d be forgiven for thinking you really were in the middle of nowhere and yet you’re only a short stroll from the village of Husthwaite and York and Harrogate are within a 30 minute drive.

The Accommodation - Glamping

Choose from wooden eco-pods, hobbiton houses or the new treehouse for your stay - all come with REAL beds so you’ll be getting a proper night’s sleep.

Hobbiton House

Stay in a beautiful hobbit house, complete with a double bed and two singles - ideal for a family. With up-cycled out door furniture and a decking area, the hobbit houses also come with fairy lights, plates, bowls, cutlery, mugs, glasses, BBQ tools, portable single gas stove, kettle, not to mention your own log burning stove inside AND a campfire outside by the door- there’s quite a lot included!


Camping with the hassle of the tent! The Hideaway has 2 double eco-pods (sleeps 2 in a double bed) and 1 family pod (sleeps 2 adults in a double and 2 kids in bunk beds). You’ll have lanterns for t-lights and your own fire pit. Bring along all your other camping gear (leave the tent but don’t forget your bedding).

Rufus's Roost LuxuryTreehouse

New for 2019, this spectacular treehouse built between 2 turrets sleeps up to 6 in 3 bedrooms releasing the inner child in all of us.

Rufus’s Roost  is available 365 days a year and has a cosy log burner, large outside terrace and alfresco dining area, a secret “Den” with slide access complete with bean bags, TV, games console, movies and popcorn machine for those nights in.

The Campsite

Bound by trees and a stream the The Hideaway sits within a beautiful rural setting and the owners are keen to keep it that way. Pitches are well spaced - the no noise after 11pm policy ensures you all get an undisturbed sleep.


The Hideaway pride themselves on their eco-credentials and have recycling facilities, biomass water heating and ecotricity on site. The main amenity building has warm, free showers and toilets as well as a small shop for your essentials. Baby changing is also available.

Pre-order breakfast and BBQ ingredients (from local butchers and bakers) and have them delivered to your pod or tent. Or stroll into the village and purchase fresh bread from the village green on saturday mornings.

If cooking feels all too much like hard work, or you’re in need of a little something extra then head to Liza Jane - the campsite vintage caravan - for fresh coffee and croissants and evening meals (set dates only). Or book a table at the soon to be opened Plum and Partidge in Husthwaite village.
