“Britain’s finest camping experience” Janey Lee Grace, Radio 2 DJ and Best Selling Author. This multi award-winning camp was set up by design couple Carolyn and Christian Van Outersterp who had previously masterminded London’s stylish restaurant bar and discreet celebrity hang out CVO Firevault. This original and authentic woodland camp is set within 200 acres of fabulous forest, it's about simple pleasures, great food and socialising around a roaring log fire. For the kids it’s heaven on earth. This is a unique British Woodland Camp with a lovely communal feel – a tea tent and campfire are at its heart and the camp appeals to families, couples and groups. Jollydays is ideally situated close to York (less than 2 hours from Kings Cross), close to the Yorkshire Wolds, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Moors National Park. New for summer 2019 is a magical fairy wood attraction and fairy museum (free entry for guests) and stylish woodland inspired café bar - don't miss it!

We stayed here for two nights as a 40th birthday treat. This place is great for kids. My two young boys had a ball, being set free and playing all day in the woods (without an iPad in sight!!). This made the whole experience relaxing for us, a perfect weekend break! The

Response from JollydaysTeam, Owner at Jollydays Glamping
Responded 30 Aug 2018
Said nothing throughout her stay at North Star Club then wanted a free stay. It is unfortunate that this guest did not contact any staff at any point during her stay. We have staff on camp, and a camp phone 24/7, an office phone and e-mails. This lady briefly mentioned her dissatisfaction to a member of staff on leaving and then sent the office a subsequent e-mail. Had she raised any issues with us we could have sorted most if not all very quickly - such as replacing items - and all issues during her stay. We do urge guests who are unhappy to let us know so we can work to remedy any troubles. Thankfully the vast majority are happy and do not contact us and those few who do, we work to resolve things quickly. It's certainly not in our interests to have upset guests. I'm afraid it ALSO seems this lady didn't fully appreciate what the off grid camp is. It is a shame as we go to lengths to explain what we do and this lady had checked the explanatory notes about the camp in the wild woods and things like insects when she booked. If things were as terrible as described why was nothing said to anyone via the various channels of communication, and why did they stay the full length of their stay?

Our kids just love Jolly Days. This unique place teaches our son and daughter so much. It’s hard these days for kids to run around independently like I used to in the 70’s. Learning to introduce themselves to other kids, suss people out, make up games, sort out little arguments,

The tent was not luxurious - the flooring was melamine (pock-marked with holes, probably from the fireplace tools) and the seating comprised of those cheap leather sofa-beds that don't have arms (and are uncomfortable both to sleep and to sit on). The beds were a little better,
