Humble Bee Farm is a working farm ideally located for your glamping getaway in the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds near Scarborough, an hour’s drive from York.
Sunday is a traditionally a day of rest … unless you’re Farmer Percy, that is! During March, Humble Bee Farm’s lambing season keeps Farmer Percy on his toes as his flock of ewes get ready for the birth of their little ones.
And if you want to experience this first hand, then join us for our Lambing Sundays on 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th March 2022. These special days provide a unique and unforgettable experience as Farmer Percy is on duty during this busy time of year. The experience includes:
Meeting Farmer Percy, listen to his lambing talk, ask him questions, see how many new lambs are born each day
Meet and feed a lamb
Visit the petting corner
Take a photo in the special photo booth
Use the sports field
Meet the farmyard gang, including our Belted Galloway cattle, our friendly pigs, Tilly, our Shetland Pony, our cheerful chucks that lay fresh eggs every day, feed the ducks and see our hardworking farm dogs, Alfie and Madge
The event is not suitable for pregnant women who are advised to enter lambing areas.
You can just come for the day but why not book one of various accommodation types and stay for a short break! The lambing experience is FREE for guests staying on site.
The family-run farm includes three comfortable holiday cottages (two with outdoor hot tubs), Premium Wigwam® Lodges and Deluxe Wigwam® Cabins each with a hot tub, TV, en-suite shower, toilet and kitchen area, and Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins. During the summer season they also have Bell Tents, Nomadic Yurts, camping and caravanning. Humble Bee Farm is also a great place to visit in school holidays or, if you have babies and tots, make the most of our mid week stays.
