Humble Bee Site Map


Booked one of only two tourer pitches and had an amazing few days. Clean site, great cafe and the hosts were so lovely. Lots to do for the children helping with the animals and in the barn and even a magician came to entertain the children one night. Happy hour for drinks and a shop for essentials. Safe for children to run around and amuse themselves.
Great spot, access to Filey and Scarborough nearby and a lovely stay. Definitely will return.
