Humble Bee Farm is in a rural location. Having your own transport is a definite advantage. Please note there is a seasonal bus route that serves Flixton village, approx. 1.5 miles away. To the best of our knowledge, this service operates during the summer season and is provided by Coastliner no. 845. However, we strongly advise you check the buses are running if you are relying on them for getting about.

There are also local taxi firms that will pick up and drop off at Humble Bee.
We have an onsite shop/reception which during peak season sells bread, milk, eggs, bacon, sausage, hot & cold drinks, sweets, souvenirs, some toiletries, tea, coffee, jam, butter, cereals, biscuits, toys, games and other items.
The nearest mini-supermarket is Proudfoots in Seamer, a village just off the A64 between Staxton and Scarborough. Proudfoots usual opening times are 6.30am to 9pm Monday to Saturday, 8am to 9pm Sunday. Within five miles there is a Morrisons (just off the A64); there is also a small range of supermarkets, including Tesco, in Filey (also about five miles away).

Humble Bee Farm is perfectly located for some of the finest beaches in the country. Hunmanby Gap is a hidden gem and is about four miles away. Filey Bay is delightful and is about five miles away. Scarborough has two fabulous bays, North and South (about 10 miles away). Bridlington is also a great seaside destination is about 15 miles away.

Our farm is a working arable/stock farm and is very peaceful, surrounding by the chalk hills of the Yorkshire Wolds. There is a children's play area, lovely walks, and of course some farm animals, including ducks, hens, Buttercup the goat, cows, sheep, cats and our dogs, Mr Bumble and Molly. We organise Nature Events on our farm, usually from February to October. Please ask staff about attractions in the area, of which there are hundreds to choose from.

The Foxhound is on Main Street, Flixton and is the nearest pub, about one mile from the Humble Bee Farm. As we are in such a tranquil location, the road between the farm and the pub is unlit and therefore we would suggest you nominate a driver. On arrival you will be given a helpful information sheet, on which there are brief details about other nearby pubs and restaurants.
Sorry, we do not accept Stag or Hen parties. However, you can join us for a peaceful, restful break once the wedding is over!
