We visited in 2012 &2014. Great both times. Welcoming staff, love the working farm. Wigwams very clean & homely. Showers & toilets very clean.

We loved having a bbq & marshmallows over the fire pit.

I highly recommend & can't wait to visit again.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Humble Bee Farm for 3 night, 4 days and came back just the other day. I have to say it was absolutely amazing and first impressions were really fantastic. There was goats, chickens, hens and dogs all free roaming, all friendly! All the staff and the service was fantastic, really friendly people. We enjoyed our stay so much that we would definitely come again!

Thank you Humble Bee Farm

This is a fab campsite. It's part of a working farm, but you can't tell. It is a lovely setting with hens and quails running around near the shop that are all extremely tame. The children can collect the hens eggs to have for breakfast.
There is a lovely playground on the back of the shower/ washing up block.
The owners are very friendly and always on hand to help. We ordered a fire pit and had roasted marshmallows.
It is a very relaxed and friendly campsite and only 5 mins drive from Filey beach and Tesco.
My family and friends loved it here and can't wait to go back in July.

We have just returned from a 3 nights stay in a wigwam. It was way past our expectations. They are quite spacious and when the bed is made up ate really comfortable. Fully equipped with electrics. Toaster, microwave, electric heater. A nice touch is there is a gas BBQ supplied with each wigwam. We picked this place because it was dog friendly. There is a warm welcome and everyone always says hello when passing. The farm animals just wander around the farm. I love the goat! He came down every morning. Also kids can pick a egg from the hen house each morning. Its a lovely working farm and only 10 minutes drive to the beach. The toilets and shower area are spotless as is the whole site. Beautiful views and so peaceful. Listening to the birds and the animals. Would definitely recommend. We are booking to go later on in the year.

Hello and many thanks for your review. We are very glad you enjoyed the Wigwams and that they were comfortable and peaceful. Buttercup is a very friendly little goat and she does enjoy human company. Our farm is very relaxed and tranquil, so we do hope you can join us again soon.

Just enjoyed two sleeps in Danes Dyke wigwam. Humble Bee Farm is perfect for introducing children to the farm life. Beautiful and safe surroundings, a warm welcome, tame farm animals roaming. We saw a doe bounding through a field on one of the walks. We heard an array of beautiful birds singing. The facilities were exceptionally clean and modern. Nothing seemed too much trouble at Humble Bee Farm! We would love to be back there right now and will most definitely be visiting again soon!

Just got back from a great stay at Humblebee Farm with our family and friends. Despite the amount of rain we had, the welcome was very warm and facilities at the site clean and helped make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Camping in the bottom field meant we were close to nature, tree climbing, watching the sheep being fed each morning and seeing a deer, hares and lots of other wildlife were highlights for the children.
Definitely a campsite for those who want a family friendly, comfortable and quiet holiday. We will be back soon!

This was our first stay at humble bee but it certainly won't be our last. The facilities are spotlessly clean and perfectly maintained. The site is brilliant for families and is safe if you have young children. John and Julie are so welcoming and go out of their way to help you with whatever they can.
We will definitely return in the future.
Thank you Humble Bee, we've made lots of lovely memories during our stay! Xxx
