Imagine having the luxury of a hot tub, with the adventure of heating it up naturally and the beautiful view of the Yorkshire Dales…by day or starlight…
Ever since the first idea that Bivouac was becoming a reality, we have always wanted to make sure that we provide a ‘rustic chic’ experience, including the luxuries that come along with that, including the hot tub!
Bivouac was born in New Zealand, when Sam and Beth were on their honeymoon, staying in a sheep shearers shack. 4 years on and the idea has evolved, and is now just 4 weeks from opening, with bookings coming in thick and fast. It’s really very exciting, scary and all part of a massive adventure that we are on, and that we have now joined Sam and Beth in…
The hot tub that we have chosen to use is the ‘Kiwi Tub’, and was road tested by some Bivouac-ers during their travels in New Zealand.
It uses tap water or clean spring water and can fit up to six people. It’s very comfortable.
There is a company in Devon that has just started selling the Kiwi Tubs, which is where we got ours from, check it our for more info: www.kiwitubuk.com
Our hot tub is available for hire for any of our guests on site…just get in touch if you would like to book it!

Here at Bivouac we are passionate about creating items out of natural materials, recycling unused items and up-cycling previously loved items, giving them a new lease of life…
We love all things luxurious and rustic, sustainable and thoughtful.
At Bivouac, we love using our local materials to make furniture and a variety of items for around the site. Our offering here in North Yorkshire creates a unique experience for our guests, with each one of our shacks and yurts having their own character and personality. We have amongst our team some really experienced and creative joiners, making bespoke individual hand crafted items for all areas on site.
Tony, a local joiner, has been working with us for a few months now doing things ranging from restoring pieces of furniture to hand crafting some unique pieces to go in our barns and shacks. When Tony is not working for us, he works at ‘Jenny Ruth’, a local productive workshop where adults with learning disabilities gain skills, confidence and happiness through joinery and various other skills.
Martin and his dog Cassie have recently joined our team here on site. Martin is a bespoke joiner who makes some beautiful hand crafted pieces of furniture. He is crafting beds, ladders, window sills and other unique items around the site, using materials he has sourced locally. Our beds in the yurts have been specifically designed for the environment and space we have here at Bivouac
Come and visit us from April onwards and see some of the wonderful hand crafted items they have made!
