Late in 2015 we took over an existing property in the village and renovated it extensively during the winter of ‘15/’16, decorating throughout, splitting the bathroom into two rooms and adding a boot room onto the back. After many hours of hard work by many dedicated volunteers it was opened by Mike Dilger on Easter Sunday, 27th March 2016. We can now offer fresh modern hostel-style accommodation for 13 guests. Our accommodation consists of three bedrooms upstairs, with three beds in the back room (with views over the large garden) and five beds (one bunk) in the two front rooms (with impressive views over the Humber estuary), one downstairs bedroom with two single beds, two bathrooms upstairs each with a toilet/washbasin and shower cubicle, as well as a down stairs toilet, boot room, large modern kitchen/diner and extensive common room with log burner providing the central heating, three double seater sofas and a PC kindly provided by Rare Bird Alert. Rates for a bed in the three upstairs rooms at the Observatory are £20 PPPN for non-members £16 for Friends of Spurn and £13 for gold star members (members who have stayed for more than 30 nights in the previous year). A bed in the downstairs bedroom is £23 PPPN for non-members, £19 for Friends of Spurn and £16 for gold star members. Bed linen and towels are provided in the downstairs bedroom, but you will need to bring your own bedding or a sleeping bag for the upstairs bedrooms, pillows and slips are provided. We recommend bringing indoor footwear along, as no outdoor footwear is allowed beyond the boot room. We also still have the Warren Cottage where prices remain at £14 PPPN for non-members and £10 for Friends of Spurn. No meals are provided but cooking facilities are provided in the new modern Kitchen at the Observatory with all cutlery, crockery and utensils provided and extensive cupboard space for you to use during your visit. A kettle, two microwaves, double oven with seven electric rings, toaster and large fridge/freezer are all provided and we also have a dishwasher and washing machine. The closest food and supplies can be purchased at the shop in Easington (on the south side of the square) which is open Monday-Saturday (closed Tuesday afternoons), or Patrington/Withernsea (10 miles to the north). Visitors under the age of 16 can only be accepted if accompanied by a responsible adult. Rooms are to be kept clean and tidy and any breakages replaced. Please respect other Observatory residents and keep noise to a minimum at night time. If you wish to stay at the Observatory you should contact Paul Collins the Warden. Visitors wishing to take part in ringing should email the Warden, Paul Collins and should hold a current BTO permit. Traps must not be driven without the Wardens permission and only rings provided by the Observatory are to be used. How to get to us By Car: From Hull follow the A1033 towards Withernsea till Patrington, then turn right towards Spurn (on the B1445). Follow this until you reach Easington then turn right to continue towards Spurn, as you reach Kilnsea Village look out for us on the left before the Crown and Anchor Pub. By Public Transport: From Hull you’ll need to take the 75 bus to either Patrington ( 8.7 miles to the north of the Obs) and either get a taxi or a lift/walk/cycle to the Observatory. Spurn Bird Observatory owns and manages a small Caravan Club CL site at the rear of Kew Villa. This sheltered and secluded site is a haven for migrant birds. There are mains hook up points for each pitch together with a toilet block and shower room. The charges are £13 per night April 1st-Sept 30th and £14 per night October 1st-March 31st which is inclusive of all services and as such offers great value for money in this private bird rich hot spot. Who knows you might even find the Big One when you stay!!! less
