Why we love Daisy Bank Camp for a weekend
Roam the landscape of Ted Hughes and the Brontës right from your front door – and fill your soul with the light, the clouds and the endless views. Then, once you’ve explored the moors or cycled the trails, you can return to the warmth and comfort of your timber cabin to watch curlews playing in the grassland outside.
For those who want to sink into the wilds of the Calder Valley in West Yorkshire, Daisy Bank Camp glamping cabins are the place to do it. Set on the moors above Hebden Bridge, within the grounds of a permaculture smallholding, these six timber-clad glamping cabins – or ‘nests’ as the owners Andrew and Angie call them – have been individually named and designed after the wild birds that fill the air in this precious patch of West Yorkshire.
You can choose from two types of self-catering accommodation at Daisy Bank Camp. The first of which are three self-contained mini Stable Cabins: Lapwing, Linnet, Skylark. They sleep 2, welcome well-behaved dogs and are set in a terrace offering uninterrupted views to the east. Simply swing open your cabin’s half-glazed stable door to let the views roll in.
Or, you can stay in one of the three larger glamping glass-fronted Honeycomb Cabins: Curlew, Kestrel, Tawny, which sleep up to 4 and are also dog-friendly. Each cabin is detached and self-contained, boasting its own unique views of the Pennines. Stay in Curlew and you get views across the east. Kestrel is set beneath pines at the wood’s edge overlooking the stream. And from Tawny you can see over the moor to the south.
All of the glamping cabins at Daisy Bank Camp have been built to the highest standards, with superior insulation and sound proofing, making them the perfect location for all year-round peaceful weekends. Inside, the decor has been carefully created to reflect the birds and the landscape just outside, using local Yorkshire designers and suppliers.
Step into one of the hexagon Honeycomb Cabins to a comfortable space where you can curl up in your double bed and watch the sun rise through the two huge bi-fold glass doors. There’s also a double sofa bed, underfloor heating, a fully-equipped micro kitchen with induction hob, fridge and full oven and a shower room with sink and toilet. Curlew Cabin is fully wheelchair accessible with step free access and accessible wet room.
Intimate in size, but no less comfortable, the Stable Cabins are neat self-catering dens where the space has been cleverly used so you have everything you need to stay toasty and happy after a day on the moors: double sofa bed, stowaway table and chairs, underfloor heating, a fully equipped micro kitchen with induction hob, fridge and combi microwave oven, plus a wet room and toilet. Outside, you’ll find a seating area and a private terraced garden where you can enjoy a morning brew under the vast skies, chatting to your glamping neighbours.
For cyclists, walkers, wanderers and wayfarers, this glamping spot just 10 minutes’ drive from Hebden Bridge is a wild and wonderful playground. From your front door you can walk the Calderdale and Pennine Ways or cycle the Sustrans National Route 68 (there’s a bike wash and racks for when you get back). There’s also a regular bus service to Hebden Bridge and Heptonstall a short walk away from the glamping site.
If you bring your car, there’s parking on-site, and the lovely West Yorkshire towns of Todmorden, Howarth, and Halifax are within easy reach. Good food is on your doorstep, too: take a walk down to the the New Delight Inn, a traditional pub with log fires and hearty food which is in the village. Or head to Hebden Bridge where there are independent eateries for all tastes.
Of course, should you simply want to curl up with a book alongside the butterflies, birds and deer that live around Daisy Bank Camp (and not venture out), you can. This is a special place of peace where the sense of resting alongside nature is second-to-none.
