Clarion Lodge Campsite and Wigwams® is a friendly, family-run camping site that sits within the Otley Chevin Forest Park area of Yorkshire. Whether you’re a glamper, a motor home fan or a traditional camper - if you’re after a quiet site with stunning views, this is the ideal spot for you.
The site welcomes tents, caravans and motorhomes. There are ten electric hook-up pitches as well as a pretty camping area for tents. Water and toilet facilities are available 24 hours in the modern toilet and shower block and there is a communal log cabin for washing up.
What makes this site really special is the added luxury of the glamping cabins. Three Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins sit on the edge of the site, in a quiet spot under the trees. The cabins sleep up to five people each and have all the essentials for a warm, quiet and restful glamping break. Luxury mattresses, electric heating and a small kitchen area with kettle, microwave, toaster and fridge mean you’ll be snug as a bug all year round.
Each cabin has its own alfresco picnic area, firepit and BBQ. With stunning views across the fields and countryside towards Ilkley, there is no finer spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch.
The Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins book out quickly so it’s advisable to book as early as possible so you don’t miss out on a little bit of luxury in the great outdoors. Due to its location in the centre of the geographical triangle of the spa town of Harrogate and the cities of Leeds and Bradford, the site offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Conversely, it’s also the ideal, peaceful location for people wishing to visit the city sights without being stuck in a stuffy hotel or B&B!
You’ll soon discover that Clarion Lodge Camping and Wigwams® is the ideal base for you and your group, no matter what you enjoy doing on your holiday. The whole area is surrounded by lush, green countryside - ideal for pony trekking, cycling or simply going for a lovely walk to enjoy the scenery. Both Ilkley Moor and Otley Chevin offer lots of choice for outdoor activities and are just a short drive from Clarion Lodge Camping and Wigwams® via York Gate.
If you have bigger fish to fry in your outdoor pursuits, you’ll be happy to hear that the campsite is just 12 miles from the Yorkshire Dales - a direct drive from the site along the A59.
If you prefer to keep things a little closer to home, a day wandering around the market town of Otley is recommended. It’s a short drive from the campsite and there are lots to keep you busy in this historic little town. Otley is well known for its music and food festival events throughout the year and additionally, the town has lots of lovely cafes and pubs serving local ales and tasty Yorkshire food.
The Otley Museum is the perfect place to learn about the history of the local area with a variety of collections dating from the prehistoric era up to the 19th and 20th centuries.
Regular trains run from Otley to Leeds and Harrogate so it’s easy to spend the day in the Turkish baths of Harrogate, enjoying tea in the famous Betty’s Tearoom or spend the day sightseeing in Leeds before jumping on a train and heading back to your warm, comfortable and peaceful Wigwam® Cabin, tucked away on this lovely campsite in the countryside.
