Field of Dreams

Johnny Vegas is a huge glamping and vintage vehicle enthusiast. Johnny loves restoring the old and unloved into something special. His mission to create a glamping site actually began a few years ago and it all started over a conversation in a pub, of course! He has done extensive research with various glamping organisations and has searched the length and breadth of England and Wales to find a suitable location, along with his assistant Bev. Despite preconceptions about this glamping site, it is meant to be a relaxing and well loved sensitive contribution to the glamping community, which is why Johnny and Bev chose Breaks Fold Farm. Richard and Louise have a wealth of experience in creating simple and well thought out accommodation and are used to working sensitively within the landscape.

Vintage Vehicle Glamping

Each vehicle on-site enjoys it's own private space nestled into the wild hillside. All the vehicle’s enjoy their own luxuries and mod cons, including their very own private vintage horse box bathroom and outside seating, with bbq fire-pit.

With five unique vehicles, there is something for everyone. This site is aimed at providing a tranquil and unique experience to families and couples. Please do not book if you wish to be loud and rowdy until the early hours as it will not be tolerated! The site is not suitable for those with mobility problems due to the nature of the vehicles and surrounding landscape. Some of the other accommodation on site may be better suited, please contact us, we are more than happy to help.

The Area

West End itself is steeped in local history. Underneath the surface of Thruscross reservoir lie the remains of the lost village. Unique features can still be seen on walks around the water, such as the old mill and communal sheep dip. When the water gets low sometimes the outline of the old church and other buildings can be seen.

The site itself sits on a hill to the rear of the farm looking down onto beautiful Thruscross Reservoir. There are miles of off road walks to enjoy around the water and the hills. Nearby Pateley Bridge, Skipton, Harrogate and Grassington are all just a short car ride away if you fancy the hustle and bustle. The Hopper Lane Hotel www.hopperlanehotel.co.uk is just a couple of miles down the road providing traditional ales and hearty meals, you can walk from the site if you fancy it. West End and Thruscross also has been recently awarded dark sky status, meaning undiluted views of the night sky come dark.

Happy Glamping.
