We’ve already told you in a previous blog that the world’s greatest cycle race – the Tour de France – will start in the world’s greatest county on 5th & 6th July 2014 bringing millions of fans to the Yorkshire roadside.
Yorkshire is the UK’s biggest county and home to some of Europe’s most stunning countryside and coastline.
The route will take the cyclists through some of our great and vibrant cities, including York, Leeds, Ripon, and Sheffield, complemented by pretty market towns.
The Grand Depart will be a festival and a spectacle for fans and first timers alike. Yorkshire will give the riders, the teams and the race organisers a race to remember.
Here at Glampit we have secured a fantastic venue for an entire bell tent village in the thriving Spa town of Ilkley. This location will provide a superb base for tourists as Ilkley is on the 2014 TdF route on the 5th July and is only 3 miles from the picturesque village of Addingham, which is also on the route on the 6th of July. The glamping site offers great facilities, with toilets, showers, parking for one car with each tent and most importantly is only 2 minutes walk away for the town centre. Ilkley as a destination is planning to provide week-long entertainment and a festival of celebration, so there really won’t be anywhere better to stay.
More details of specific glamping packages will be available on glampit.com very shortly, but in the meantime please register your interest by contacting us here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
