Humble Bee has two shower/toilet blocks: one behind the reception/shop, and one in the middle of the site.

The main shower block includes a kitchen (with fridge/freezer, microwave, three sinks, information point); a disabled/family shower including a baby change facility; gents toilets and showers and ladies toilets and showers. Big Chief Wigwams are very spacious but do not include a loo/shower in the Wigwam itself.

The short answer is 'yes'! Each Wigwam® is fully heated, with an electric heater included. The Wigwams® are particularly well insulated and retain the heat. That is why our Wigwams® can be booked 365 days a year!

Our Wigwams® sleep up to five guests in each. They are also spacious enough accommodate a travel cot.

What is there to do on Humble Bee Farm?
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.
Where is the nearest food-serving pub?
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.
