Luxury Shepherds huts in stunning north yorkshire

A STYLISH rural retreat close to the beautiful locations of harrogate and ripon


About Us

Strawberry Safari a small, but perfectly formed glamping site in between Ripon and Harrogate in the stunning North Yorkshire countryside.

Originally forming part of the Ripon to Harrogate railway line, the site has been brought back to life as a rural retreat focused on relaxation, home grown produce and healthy living.

Guests can stay in our beautiful shepherds huts, pick fruit from the array of trees and plants or join a fitness class to blow away the cobwebs. Walk the grounds, curl up with a good book……..its your choice.

Your hut 

Each Shepherds hut is named after a variety of strawberry, growing in the Strawberry Safari poly-tunnel.
