Stay in our cosy How Stean Bunkhouse - No need to put up tents!

Affectionately know as 'The Posh Tent'. The How Stean bunkhouse offers basic sleeping accommodation for up to 16 people in two adjoining rooms. The posh tent has proved to be very popular with a wide variety of groups just wishing for somewhere simple, warm and dry. We know that putting up a tent at a campsite can be a hassle so this brilliant accommodation makes life easy for you, but without paying the usual price of accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales! Even if you aren't planning to use the brilliant activity options that are available with How Stean Gorge, this still makes the perfect place for a camping holiday in Yorkshire, but without the hassle!

Booked two nights in the bunkhouse above the shower blocks for 11 of us on a stag do. We did the big 5 and then had a BBQ and fire. It was absolutely perfect - everyone had a great time, the food was lovely and all staff very friendly.
