Bainbridge Ings campsite’s website described itself as a “quiet family-run” business that is set in the “heart of the Yorkshire Dales”. It has an elevated position that offers “truly amazing views of Wensleydale”, which is just a short walk from the market town of Hawes.

The campsite offers a range of luxury sleeping arrangements, including brick-built lofts, cottages and wooden country pods, which have hot tubs and decking. The website also says the one-bed pods are perfect for “short stays for couples” and cost £575 per week to rent.
