Find out the difference between the Original and Big Chief Wigwam Cabins

Original Big Chief Wigwams

Here at Humble Bee Farm, we have two types of Big Chief Cabins: a Big Chief Original and Standard Big Chief Wigwam® Cabin.

Both these cabin types have been handcrafted in Scotland by Wigwam® Holidays and are timber-made, fully insulated and heated, with lockable doors, toaster, microwave, fridge, kettle and hygienic mattresses. Each cabin also has shelves for storage.

The Big Chief Original

We have four of these cabins positioned towards the bottom of Humble Bee Farm, close to the camping field and the Bell Tents.

There are two toilet/shower blocks on site within a short walking distance of these cabins.

These cabins have an earlier design with a slanted roof. This means the interior of the cabin also has a slanted roof and these cabins can only accommodate either two adults and two small children or two adults and travel cot. This type of cabin accepts up to two small dogs too. Tariffs apply.

The original Big Chief includes a smaller fridge and has lovely views of the surrounding fields and campsite.

These cabins are charged at a lower tariff than their counterparts as we’ve taken into account the above factors. The quality of these cabins is excellent, though and they’re perfect for a short break on our working farm.

The Big Chief Wigwam® Cabin

We have sixteen of these cabins in total and these have an arched roof and a slightly higher head height inside.

These cabins can also accommodate up to two adults and up to three children plus up to two dogs per cabin. Tariffs apply.

These cabins are further up the site by way of location and are positioned closer to the toilet and shower blocks. Each also has one parking space outside the cabin and the fridge inside has more capacity.

The quality of the cabin is excellent and like all our timber cabins, they are fully heated and insulated. These cabins, due to their position onsite and design are charged at a slightly higher tariff than the original cabins.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to get in touch.

The Shop includes cold drinks, souvenirs and basic supplies during the peak season.

The shop has an oblong layout with shelving on all sides and an island shelf in the centre. The approach to the counter is the widest part of the shop layout and will accommodate a wheelchair.

Driveway and Farm Walks

A tarmac drive forms the access to the site from the public road to the Reception/Shop area and car park and extends down the site as far as the camping bell tent section.

The main drive has a sharp bend and a descent into the site.

There are several farm walks around the site that follow grass margins around certain fields. These tracks are suitable for rambling and dog walks (dogs must be kept on a lead at all times).

Correct footwear must be worn given the uneven surface of the field margins.


Access to our Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins

The Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins have varied positions in the middle of the main site on either side of a central, with a grass/gravel surround or are positioned at the bottom of the site near the camping area.

There is a narrow, central access road (5mph speed limit applies) down the centre of the site.


There is a slight incline from this road to the entrance of each Big Chief Wigwam® Cabin. Please note some cabins have a grass surround while others are on a gravel surface.

There is an exterior light for each cabin.

Once inside the cabin, there are no additional steps to negotiate, with laminate flooring throughout.

We have two designs of Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins: the original cabins and the standard cabins. Both are designed by the same company, the original cabin being older than the standard cabins. Main difference between them is the originals have flat eaves, while the standard cabins have slightly curved ones.

  • Big Chiefs

    Our first time Glamping won’t be our last. Lovely quiet site with everything you need. We stayed in the “Bempton Cliffs” pod – perfect size for adult and 2 kids. Did a nature walk one night which was very informative and also had burgers from the gourmet van which made a visit to the site. We had day trips to Scarborough, Filey and Hunmanby Gap – all within easy driving distance. Would highly recommend – staff super helpful. Next time we might splash out on a hot tub pod!
