Overview & description
The Bivouac at Druid’s Temple is all about rustic, rugged, warm, characterful and sensitive to our natural surroundings. We provided a little luxury mixed in with a lot of attention to detail to create a warm, comfortable and, above all, simple environment for you to enjoy. Situated just a few miles from Masham, on the edge of the moors, the Bivouac provides accommodation in luxury Tree Lodges, Yurts and a Bunk Barn, and day visitors are also welcome to enjoy the café and take a walk in the woods surrounding the Druid’s Temple, an 18th Century folly with standing stone circles and features throughout the woodland, with views across the Dales and Leighton Reservoir.
Guests can retreat, enjoy quiet reflection and snuggle down with a good book or engage in more energetic activities such as climbing, falconry, pony trekking, foraging or fly fishing. From long walks across wild moorland to a cup of tea and copious amounts of cake in our café, we believe that life can be shared honestly and simply. Our eco credentials are unrivalled, with forestry thinnings from the Swinton Estate used for all our logs and wood chip, a carbon neutral woodchip boiler, spring fed water, and a grey water system and reed bed for the entire site.
