Glamping and beer? Surely, a match made in heaven! The Hodgson family opened their very own brewery in 2008, with cask ales crafted from their home-grown malting wheat. Named after their most popular beer, the farm's newest addition is this well-equipped shepherd's hut found tucked against mature trees and overlooking a pond. It's the only glamping hut onsite, creating a spacious and private enclosure, with the built-in double bed and private hot tub – making it an ideal retreat for couples. Serve supper around the firepit under the dark starry skies for that essential camping feeling, while, inside, thoughtful touches include a vintage-style digital radio, retro microwave and a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty all year round.
The friendly and relaxed atmosphere setting attracts more than just glampers. The shelter of the woodland behind and the water of the lily-dotted pond before you draws a wide variety of wildlife. Roe deer can sometimes be spotted among the trees when you’re particularly quiet, while buzzards, kestrels, and woodpeckers also frequent the woodland. The Hodgson's can give you some ideas for days out; a short drive east to the coast reveals one of the longest stretches of sand in England, reaching all the way north to the coastal town of Bridlington. In land, Hull provides plenty of interesting attractions – The Deep, Britain's most spectacular aquarium, being one – perfect for days out when the weather isn't playing ball.

Activities

The Little Otchan Hut is in the middle of Yorkshire's nature triangle, which includes the unique nature reserve of Spurn Point out on the very edge of the coast where the River Humber meets the sea. It's a mere 5 minute drive to the nearest beach – the dead straight sands along Withernsea, Waxholme and beyond while, inland, the 2017 'capital city of culture', Hull, has plenty to offer. Highlights include the excellent aquarium (01482 381000), the Maritime Museum (01482 300300) and the city's walking tours. If the farm brewery has got you in the mood, then the ale trail is a particular highlight.

The Nancy Inn (01964 671117) is 3 miles away and The Boatshed in Withernsea is well worth a visit if you like real ale and cider.
