Our Story

We are a family run business led by cousins Tracey and Trisha, and aided by their husbands Duncan and David.  

Between us we have watched Yorkshire Wolds Glamping go from a 1.5 acre paddock with old disused railway wagons and farm outbuildings, that former owner Tracy knew could have a better life and be reimagined.   Retired Steam Engine Fitter & Driver, Duncan, imparted some of his railway knowledge right at the start of Tracy's idea stage. We watched the amazing conversion stage by herself and her fabulous team.  We have had several relaxing, memorable holidays at Yorkshire Wolds Glamping and had a fantastic photo shoot at the much loved Glamping site photography studio.  We feel so lucky to have seen its inspiring journey and now to be have been given the opportunity to purchase it from Tracy at the end of 2022. 

We would like to thank Tracy and all her team, all those skilled tradesmen and loads of amazing volunteers who have helped turn both Tracy's and our dream in to reality.

Tracey - new co owner

Former school PA, Tracey has now retired after nearly 20 years in secondary school education and is putting her organisational and admin skills to running the Glamping site.  Tracey also has railways in her blood, as she is both daughter, wife and mother to several train drivers in her family!  Tracey and Duncan actually met on a steam engine so there's no wonder she was so draw to Yorkshire Wolds Glamping railway wagons. She is really keen to impart her new found love of the Yorkshire Wolds to visitors both new and old.

Duncan - the train driver and 'odd job man in his spare time'

Having been a friend of former owner Tracy for over 35 years, as they were at school together and even share the same birthday, Duncan was drawn to the idea of salvaging and restoring anything to do with railways.  Currently a train driver on some of the most picturesque routes in North Yorkshire and with a history of Steam engines in his career he was thrilled to get the opportunity to have his own converted railway wagons.  His love of walking and cycling make the Yorkshire Wolds his 'go to' place for relaxing and sharing the amazing scenery with family and friends.

Trisha - new co-owner.

Trisha has seen the last 20 years working within the Primary and Early years education, where she's been supporting, aiding and guiding colleagues, carers, parents and children.  She's really excited for this new chapter in her life within these beautiful surroundings and the prospect of new adventures, experiences and discoveries alongside her family and friends is one she can't wait to make.

David - the engineer and 'in charge of works'.

David has spent the last 30+ years stripping, building and renovating pretty much anything mechanical or structural.  He enjoys discovering how things work and operate.  He'll be the one that you'll probably see around the site tinkering, fixing, supporting and guiding his wife Trisha on this new adventure with Tracey. David loves exploring the outdoors by either car, bike or on foot and is definitely excited to be able to discover new routes and places in this beautiful part of the country.

Tracy - former owner and now resident Photographer.

Tracy has been a keen photographer since she was a teenager and in 2014 decided to give up work in a Corporate career to pursue her love of photography.  Whilst looking for somewhere to convert in to a photo studio, she came across the land that she has now converted in to the Glamping site making it the perfect location for her photography and Glamping business.  Tracy has now handed the Glamping site reins to us but is still our resident photographer offering photography courses and photoshoot sessions both here at the site as well as pop up sessions in various amazing locations on the Yorkshire wolds and its coast.
