North Star Club Launching New Glamping Destination

According to Hull Daily Mail, Carolyn and Christian Van Outersterp will be launching a new glamping location in Yorkshire.

The country loving pair will be opening up a new destination call the North Star Club featuring 8 timber cabins.

The cabins will come fully loaded with stoves, four-post beds and spa-style bathrooms.

As glamping has been trending over the last couple years, they wanted to bring the luxury and the outdoors together at North Star Club.

The glamping destination will be a luxury retreat on 500 acres of woodland near Sancton.

Eventually, the couple would like to expand upwards to 42 units on the campsite.

With one glamping site under their belt they are ready to expand and continue the trend of bringing the luxury to the outdoors for glampers.

Glamping Gets an Oscar Nod

Who needs a gold statue when you can go glamping?

Spoiler Alert: Reese Witherspoon did not go glamping in the Oscar-nominated hiking-camping-and-coming-of-age movie, Wild (but you should see it anyway). However, as a nominee, she and her fellow runners-up in the Best Actor/Actress, Supporting Actor/Actress, and Director categories, as well as host Neil Patrick Harris, received a six-figure swag bag, which includes a $12,500 USD seven-day glamping getaway.


The upscale wilderness experience pairing luxury camping with private chef-prepared meals and fine Napa Valley wines was offered to Oscar contenders such as Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Bradley Cooper, Steve Carell, and Benedict Cumberbatch so they could flee into the arms of nature and unwind after a busy award show season.


While nobody likes to lose, in this case, it pays to be in contention. TerraVelo Tours’ glitzy-come-outdoorsy escape takes Hollywood’s elite from the red carpet into the most awe-inspiring alcoves of Wyoming, California, and Utah. Here, guests are wooed with A-list amenities from plush memory-foam beds with Frette linens to a “transportable luxury bathroom” stocked with C.O. Bigelow toiletries and Turkish towels. Couple these frills with the option to surf, cycle, go hot air ballooning, or do sunrise yoga, and we’d like to put our name forward to be Bradley Cooper’s +1.

This is not the first time Oscar has given a nod to glamping. Back in 2013, one of the presenter perks was an elephant safari and four-night stay for two at Abu (tented) Camp in Botswana, valued at $15,000 USD.

In case all this talk of upper crust camping is making you think it’s easy to insert a star-studded stay into Oscar bag territory, making the cut is no small task (read: near-impossible), which is why we’re ecstatic glamping is taking center stage.
