If you’ve never visited Durham, glamping holidays can be a great way to explore this wonderful corner of northeast England. There’s plenty of choice for glamping accommodation in Durham with bell tents providing a cosy holiday home complete with comfortable beds. The lack of light pollution makes Durham’s glamping sites perfect for stargazing, perhaps around your own firepit snuggled beneath a blanket.

Pre-erected safari tents and yurts in Durham are all part of the glamping experience or you may prefer a cosy shepherd’s hut in Durham’s stunning natural surroundings. The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a great base for glamping in Durham, or consider family glamping in the Yorkshire Dales nearby. Walks, wildlife, big open skies and pretty villages are right on your doorstep, just waiting to be explored.

County Durham glamping sites can be in scenic hills and valleys or look for glamping pods and domes near Durham’s windswept coast. It’s a wonderful area to get away from everything and relax. Days out on your Durham glamping break can include a trip to Barnard Castle or a walk to Britain’s biggest waterfall at High Force. Durham glamping sites are within easy reach of England’s highest ski centre at Weardale which offers a variety of snowboarding and ski runs in winter. In summer you may prefer to visit the Weardale Museum, High House Chapel and Heritage Railway from your Durham glamping accommodation nearby.

Glamping holidays in Durham should definitely include a visit to the cathedral city with its 11th century Norman Castle and Treasures of Saint Cuthbert within the cathedral museum. Explore the Botanical Gardens from your Durham glampsite and browse the indoor market for the local speciality – a Durham Lamb Squab Pie!
