We visited here on the weekend of the 11th March for our sons birthday. We were greeted by friendly staff, simple check in and overall it was immaculate. We stayed two nights and both of our boys had a blast, it was so lovely to wake up listening to the birds and lambs, we also spotted the barn owl that...

Cant rate this experience highly enough. We stayed in Merry Dale cottage which was beautiful. From arrival to departure we enjoyed every moment. We were cosy with the log burner and underfloor heating. The kitchen facilities were fantastic with every utensil cup plate pan etc you could possibly need. There were fluffy towels for the hot tub and separate towels...

Hello there, and thank you so much for visiting our lovely cottage and for writing such a fabulous review. The log burner certainly makes the cottage feel extra special and welcoming, and we've tried to think of everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, so thank you for your kind comments about Merry Dale's facilities. We do think when...

Our second trip to Humble Bee Farm - this year we had a yurt instead of a wigwam. Bit chilly on arrival on a grey March afternoon but very pretty with the fairy lights plus the birthday package goodies. Loved the extra space that the yurt provided both inside and the outdoor shelter with gas ring. Personally I would prefer...

Many thanks for returning to Humble Bee Farm and for staying in one of our nomadic Yurts. Spring is a lovely time to visit the area, and we are glad you enjoyed the birthday package.

Quite a short review but just to say that we loved it and will almost certainly visit again. I would say that the Wigwam really only sleeps six if you're VERY comfortable with each other but they are snug and warm with everything you'd need for this sort of break. My only word of warning is that I didn't find...

Stayed at humble bee farm with my husband and 6 month old baby Feb half term for 2 nights. Great location, easy access to Scarborough and surrounding areas. Accommodation was clean, and warm during the night, but I wouldn't describe it as luxury. Comfy beds, kettle, toaster & microwave a plus. Thought the idea of the added extras they offer...

My partner and I have just returned from a long weekend spent at Humble Bee farm, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The site offers trendy alternatives to camping, instead you can 'glamp' in a fully furnished wigwam or yurt. We opted for the Big Chief Wigwam and chose a full romantic package as it was a belated...

Had a 2 night stay in a wigwam - The pods are a good size, the heating was adequate, the kettle /toaster and microwave were welcome. The nearest toilet/shower block only has one shower which was fine for us as the place was pretty empty but I can imagine it would be a nightmare in summer. There are a few...

We have just returned from a three night stay in Swallows cottage and have had a fantastic time. The cottage was beautifully set up on arrival with the fire going. It was exceptionally clean, cosy and really well equipped with everything a young family could need. They had even left a lovely box of toys out for the little ones....
