Bracken Burrows from above

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.

    Gorgeous setting with only 3 pods so lovely and quiet and peaceful. Pods were very spacious for us (2 adults, 10 & 3 year old children). Lovely decor and added extras like teabags and coffee pods for the machine, crockery, cutlery etc. Logs and coal with an ‘honesty fish’ for use on the bbq or log burner. Cheeky chickens roaming free which the children loved and board games and garden games in the shed for everyone to use. Nick and Lucy were so friendly and helpful but then left you to it. Fresh bedding and towels provided which saves so much messing about. Travel cot was provided too which was great and all the beds were very comfy so we all had a great nights sleep. We will definitely be returning again!

    We loved our stay at Bracken Burrows and are hoping to go back later in the year. The actual place was so lovely and well kept, the pods were just amazing. We packed things like tea and coffee as we weren't sure what to expect and were blown away when we arrived. Everything from towels and shower gels to cutlery and cups were provided, even a coffee machine! Nick was very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Although there were 2 other pods on site, it felt very cosy and private. On a night we lit the fire (which again, everything was provided for from logs to firelighters!) And sat around on the decking.

    Even though you feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of the world, it is only a short drive into local towns for any shopping you might need. It's also not far from seaside towns and surrounding beauty spots. We drove out to Whitby for the day, called to Scarborough on the way back then got back to our pod, cooked some food on the BBQ and enjoyed the lovely weather!

    We stayed in Muffin pod for the weekend with our dog, both of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The log heater sure made sure to keep us warm during the evening. Our hosts couldn’t do enough for us and were continually apologetic for a small electrical trip we experience. They allowed us to let our dog run free off the lead which was fantastic. Clean, tidy and friendly. We would love to come again.

    I stayed with my boyfriend in the Muffin pod at Bracken Burrows for two nights.
    We arrived late Friday night (around 10pm) and were immediately greeted by Nick. He walked us to our pod in the rain and showed us where everything was, including the wood. It was such a beautiful pod and our food hampers were waiting for us inside.
    It was a cold and wet weekend but the pod was dry and warm. The wood fire heater was especially amazing.
    Nick and his wife were lovely and welcoming! The dogs were beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better, more relaxed weekend.
    Thank you both so much!

    Everything! It was the perfect getaway for our fifth wedding anniversary. There was everything you needed in the pods and it was so warm and cosy with the log burner on. A little too warm actually as the weather was mild. We also enjoyed using the fire pit outside. It was a beautiful autumnal weekend and the view was lovely. The bed was comfortable and the shower nice and hot. Would like to revisit with our children in future. Thank you.

    Loved the hot tub, my boyfriend especially enjoyed getting the fire going to get the hot tub warm. The water stayed hot all night and we were able to get in again the next morning.
    The pod was lovely and clean and had everything we needed to make our evening meal.
    The main thing for us was that we were allowed to take our dog with us.
    The owner Nick was very welcoming and helpful on our arrival.
    We will definitely be back again!

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)
