I booked for us to camp for two nights at Himble Bee Farm after reading good reviews. We were not disappointed! This farm is set in the hills of a tiny village near Filey and is in a great location for accessing Filey, Scarborough and Whitby.
Upon arriving we were greeted by the delightfully friendly owners and given a sheet about the farm rules. We went to pitch our tent and drove past free-range chicken coops (where you are welcome to go and collect eggs), a small lake, goats and a barn. We took note of the two shower blocks with free showers (in my opinion, the one next to reception is nicer and quieter). The tent area is quite small which is nice and is surrounded by a beautiful landscape.
There are nature trails from the farm that children can enjoy and there always seemed to be morning activities. The farm also sells freshly cooked bacon sandwiches in the mornings and there is a very small but useful little shop in the reception. You can also hire a firepit from here for a very good price.
As two young people in our mid twenties, who aren't into drinking or partying, we felt very much at home at this site. The farm is suitable for families with children, or the older camper as it is so peaceful. Overall our stay was wonderful and we have booked to camp there again this august.
