Wildlife abounds at this family-run site in East Yorkshire with lakeside safari lodges, yurts and log cabins

Set between two large lakes, there’s no special prize for guessing how this glamping site got its name. The place is a wonder for wildlife. Resident kingfishers can be spotted by the quietest of campers and herons sometimes appear on the water's edge. The glamping accommodation is even named after some of the residents here, with the Dragonfly Dream Safari Lodge in honour of the colourful creatures that dance around the lakes.

In terms of what’s on offer, the glamping area, located just off a quiet country lane and surrounded by mature willow trees, is well equipped and ideal for groups and families. Comprised of a handful of safari tents and yurts, each abode comes complete with proper beds, warming wood-burning stoves and lighting inside. Each also has access to a covered cooking area and there’s a central, wooden lodge where the toilets, showers and washing-up area are found. If you'd prefer en-suite accommodation, meanwhile, there's a pair of more luxuriously-equipped romantic log cabins overlooking one of the lakes as well as a larger family-sized lodge. All three have kitchenettes, shower rooms and their own wood-fired hot tubs.

While the area is popular with walkers – paths lead directly from the glamping site entrance and deer are often spotted in the neighbouring fields – it’s still the lakes that are most rewarding. You can hire two-person kayaks for a paddle, watch wildlife or simply relax by the water's edge. Further afield, it's a 15-minute drive to the coast where popular beaches are matched by stunning cliff-top walking routes, notably at Bempton, Sewerby and Flamborough.

Hare's Hideout Safari Tent-Sleeps 6
Great stay
The host was fabulous, she gave lots of recommendations on where to visit for a day out and where to eat. The tent had everything you need, and more was available in the lovely community area, including a hob, microwave, and a larger fridge and freezer. The beds in the tent were super comfortable. The bbq and fire pit were great with plenty of wood available. Situated in a beautiful, quiet area with a scenic 30 minute walk to 2 pubs. The food at The Dacre was amazing

Family Lakeside Lodge with Hot Tub
The cabin we stayed in was beautiful. It was clear no expense had been spared everything was high quality and immaculate. The view from the lodge was breathtaking. We went for a hen do with 5 guests and the hottub was the perfect size. The owners were really nice and accommodating. I cannot recommend this place enough

Sunset Lodge with Hot Tub for 2
Me and my partner stayed in willow lodge and were delighted with it! It was lovely and clean, super cosy and cute and the little amenities just added that extra special touch! The hot tub was awesome and super fun to heat it up yourself with access to more logs if we needed. Even before our stay staff were quick to answer any queries and always open for us to get in touch about anything during our stay too. Had a lovely guide round the campsite and given plenty of recommendations with things such as places to eat. The location is out of the way and peaceful and as long as you don't mind an hour drive there's lovely beaches to explore too! Thank you so much for our stay!! We would love to come back with some of our friends later on in the year :)
