Camping Returns to William’s Den Next Weekend

Camping at William’s Den reopens next week on Friday 24th May with pitches available throughout the summer. Bookings are now open for the unique family-friendly campsite, situated next door to the Den at North Cave with 360-degree views of the Yorkshire Wolds.

The ethos of William’s Den is to give families freedom to play – running, climbing, exploring, den-building and connecting with nature. The Den’s campsite offers all of this day and night, with a 24/7 camp warden on-hand to help all visitors and keep the site clean and secure.

For the first weekend of the school summer holidays, Friday 19th – Sunday 21st July, the campsite will host William’s Den’s annual Big Camp Out event. Gather in the great outdoors for a family-friendly music festival featuring live music, bushcraft activities, circus workshops, home-cooked food and starlit storytelling. Day tickets and weekend tickets are both available and the headline act Taylor Swift tribute act, Taylor Reloaded, was announced yesterday.

The William’s Den campsite is open to tents, campers and caravans. Campers can book ‘pitch-only’ tickets with freedom to explore the local area and enjoy countless walks and bike rides in the Wolds with great connectivity to public footpaths and cycling routes. Or there’s an option to ‘pitch and play’ offering families unlimited access to William’s Den throughout their stay.

Dog-friendly and campfire-friendly, all campers can pick their pitch amongst the 52,000m2 field, making it ideal for groups pitching up together. The ‘off-grid’ campsite is well-equipped with fresh drinking water, shower huts, a wash-up station, good quality portaloos, changing facilities and access to the Den’s delicious home-cooked food. Local village North Cave is half a mile away offering a shop, pub and local amenities.


Christian Carver, Co-Founder and Creator of William’s Den explains:

“It’s our fourth year of hosting campers and we’ve put our heart and soul into making the campsite a beautiful, safe and welcoming place to stay, whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro. We can’t wait to welcome the first guests next weekend.

“We strongly believe in the power of the great outdoors, especially for children and young people, and there’s no bigger adventure than pitching up a tent, firing up the BBQ and toasting marshmallows under the stars. Who knows, you might even get another glimpse of the northern lights!”

Booking is now available for summer camping, open Friday 24th May to Sunday 1st September and the Big Camp Out family-friendly festival, Friday 19th to Sunday 21st July. Find out more and book now at
