This includes a covered fire circle with log seating, hen pen, poly-tunnel, communal space with basic kitchen facilities and wood burner, tables and chairs, wood fired pizza oven and picnic benches over looking the fields, a shower and wc and sink. Towels and bedding are provided. We were awarded Highly Commended, beating York Races in the Visit York Awards for visitor experience of the Year 2015.

Guest access

There is plenty of free secure parking and guests can come and go as they like. A mini bus into York can be arranged so you can follow your Wild Harvest Day with a wild night out in the city!

Interaction with guests

Someone will be on hand at most points during a stay but contactable by phone on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) to answer questions if not.

The Neighborhood

We are surrounded by the flat farmland that characterises East Riding of Yorkshire, there are barn owls and bats to see on the evening and the odd buzzard or deer. We are a 10 – 15 min drive from York and our nearest town is Pocklington, an attractive market town with all facilities, just 7 miles away and cycle-able.

Getting around

There is no public transport near us. The nearest stops are Pocklington (bus, 7 miles from us) and York (train, 12 miles) or Howden (train, 8 miles). We recommend a car.

Other things to note

There is no electricity on the tipi area so please bring torches. Solar lights to the loo’s are installed. Firewood is provided and a fire can be set for your arrival.
Activities: From creative natural crafting sessions such as willow stars, foraged flower bath bomb making or beeswax candles and more (see website) to Instinctive Archery, wild food foraging and fire lighting, via relaxing yoga and massage we can design a package to suit. Book the basic accommodation here and contact us for the add ons.
