General

  • Pristine pods among the spectacular East Riding of Yorkshire
  • Half an hour's drive from the Yorkshire coast and an hour from York
  • Right on the Minster Way and National Cycle Route 1 trails

Bordered by the National Cycle Route 1 and the Minster Way walking trail, the small and splendid glamping site of Bracken Burrows is surrounded by an excellent range of outdoorsy options around the Yorkshire Wolds and the East Riding of Yorkshire, and is within easy reach of the sights and lights of historic York. The sands and sea of the Yorkshire coast are about half an hour's drive from here.

Your friendly hosts Lucy and Nick (and their five pups) have sourced their modern pods locally and kitted them out in spectacular style: each has its own ensuite plus a kitchenette with a microwave, a fridge, a hob, a coffee machine and a kettle. Outside there’s also a private decked area with outdoor seating and a firepit for barbecue feasts (logs are available on site). Plus, you’ll be chuffed to hear that there’s no need to lug your bedding or towels along, because these are supplied as standard.

To get your rural retreat off to a cracking start, you can order breakfast, dinner and barbecue hampers filled with locally produced goodies, and there’s even a hamper for grownups packed with luxury treats such as Prosecco, locally made cheeses, chutneys and pâtés, fruity nibbles and slippers (because you’ll be doing a lot of lounging around while you’re here, obvs). You should probably use the barbecue at least once, but for when you’ve had enough of slaving over hot coals, the local area has a good collection of excellent inns serving guest ales and good gastropub grub.

Dogs are welcome on site and can stay in the pods if you and they so wish – or they can spend their sleepytime in the cosy stable block nearby.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

    Very friendly welcome on arrival. Pod was modern, spacious and very clean. All mod cons needed were present e.g. fridge, hob microwave, toaster etc, even a coffee machine too. Bed was really comfy. Nice space outside to sit and chill out with peaceful surroundings with nice big field for kids to play without disturbing others. Kids loved it.

    The owners were amazing and very helpful throughout the stay. Paying attention to our every need. Loads of space for our dog to run around which was nice, also the surrounding area had plenty of nice walking routes too.
    Situated fairly central to many surrounding places, it was never too long in the car for day trips out.
    Loved the log burner inside and then the bbq outside. Brought that camping element to the trip nicely

    Disliked: 

    In the pod a few more hooks for hanging things. A slightly better shower where the hot water lasts a bit longer. Both small things but would have helped us. Finally the WiFi was ok but very hit and miss.

Local attractions

Bracken Burrows is right next to National Cycle Route 1 as well as the Minster Way, very easily sorting cycling and hiking and cycling days.

The site is also within easy reach of the Yorkshire Wolds and the Yorkshire Moors; the market towns of Driffield and Beverley are a short drive away and, a little further afield is the humongously historic walled city of York, famed for housing northern Europe’s biggest Gothic cathedral and the fab Jorvik Viking Centre.

Head seaward to reach the Yorkshire coast: Bridlington is a tiptop spot for sampling freshly caught seafood and taking trips on the land train or the Bridlington Eye, as well as visits to see the waxworks at the Beside The Seaside Experience Museum.

The Flamborough Head promontory, a few miles north along the coastline, has two ancient lighthouses to explore and is brimming with cliffside hiking, sea canoeing (for experienced canoeists) and birdwatching opps. Several more miles along the coast lies Whitby, where the famed Whitby Goth Weekend takes place twice yearly, and whale watching trips in the North Sea depart from Brewery Steps at Whitby Harbour between April and October.

Other nearby attractions include Williams Den, North Cave, Let Loose in Beverley and Flamingo Land.

Must see

  • Burton Agnes Hall (10.9 miles)
  • Ferens Art Gallery (15.0 miles)
  • The Deep (15.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Maister House (15.1 miles)
