Far from the Madding Crowd
March 7th 2019
Not in Hardy country but North Yorks you’ll find a real gem of a camping barn. Well off the beaten track with limited vehicular access it’s the perfect place to escape to for groups of up to 16 (more if some want to camp).
Full of contradicitons, Raydale Barn is remote and off grid, but cosy and comfortable with gas for cooking and hot water and a large log burner. Miles from civilisation and tarmac it is surrounded by footpaths and bridleways and trails. Treat yourself, your friends and family to a day or two far from your madding crowd!
