Dreaming of a staycation away from the city smoke or looking for a peaceful retreat where you can reconnect with nature? After lockdown, I think we’re all in need of a little of both. Humble Bee Farm is the perfect combination of glamping and the rural fun of a working farm. If you’re looking for a glamping holiday with a difference, then look no further.
The site offers a wide range of accommodation options to suit everyone’s preferences, from lodges and cabins to fully-furnished yurts and bell tents with their own electricity.
So whether you are looking for a fun vacation away with the kids, or a romantic trip away with that special someone, Humble Bee has pretty much got you covered in all departments (hello, romantic countryside views!).
Just on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds Way valleys, Humble Bee Farm is brilliantly located – with a range of places to visit including the seaside. Take a trip over to Scarborough or Filey beach, visit the North York Moors, or zip up to Whitby and check out its raved-about fish and chips.
If you don’t fancy trekking out too far, you can simply take in the tranquil valley landscape, venturing onto the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trust walk. The glamping site is littered with a beautiful and eclectic array of wildflowers that highlight the farm’s eco ethos – which makes for a particularly pretty sight in the spring.
If you are bringing the kids here, make sure you set them to work on the farm.
Humble Bee encourages the little ones to collect free-range eggs in the mornings, or you can get them to take part in the various nature events organised on-site throughout the year.
Introduce your children to their two gorgeous Pygmy goats, their sheep and the cattle, as well as ducks and chickens that can be spotted wandering around the farm.
If all that wasn’t exciting enough as it was, kids will love camping in Humble Bees wigwams, which have everything a family would need for an exciting stay.
Inside, the heated cabins boast a private bathroom, mattresses and all the mod-cons you’d expect, as well as a bbq and picnic tables for a lovely alfresco dinner.
Some even have hot tubs, and dogs are also welcome to join you on your trip. Although not in the hot tub, of course, because that would be pretty weird.
The ‘Big Chief Wigwam’ sleeps up to five, and the bell tents and yurts sleep four. There are cool additions that you can take advantage of, too, such as bottles of bubbly, breakfast and a campfire which can be pre-booked for the best possible glamping experience.
Back to basic campers with no electric and motorhomes pitches are available too, so you can rest assured all types of holiday is catered for.
Prices are around £150 for a family of six for two nights, but check out the website here for more information.
