Rustic, friendly, on-the-farm camping with a wealth of history on the doorstep.

History buffs will feel at home on East Yorkshire’s Butt Farm. Across the fields, the cobbled market town of Beverley marks itself out with the towers of Beverley Minister – a grand gothic masterpiece that took almost 200 years to build. While, in a neighbouring field, a World War II anti-aircraft gun site is already under restoration by Historic England. It’s an intriguing little landmark to discover on your tent-step. Indeed, the farm itself has an air of history about it – centuries-old barns, complete with worn red bricks and ancient wooden shutters, and mature trees show there’s nothing young about this lush patch. 

What is new, however, is the campsite. The brainchild of young tenants Oly and Jen, who took over the farm in 2014, the site is only in its early days and boasts the newest of facilities as a result. The showers, washrooms and dishwashing area are modern, clean and warm, while segments of subtle glass tiling on the roof allow in natural light and avoid new windows spoiling the barn aesthetics. From outside it keeps its history, yet inside there’s a modern function.

Beyond the barn, there’s a dog shower, chemical disposal point, recycling in a converted grain silo, plus electricity and water on the hard standing pitches, while tent campers can tuck themselves around the meadow perimeter. The field is around two and a half acres in size, so space is never an issue. And, when you do decide to take off, a blackboard and maps in the information area will help you decide on where to go.

A footpath and cycleway are well marked to lead you directly into Beverley and the surrounding areas. The route also takes in some of Butt Farm’s 180 acres, home to cows and sheep – visit early in the camping season and there’s plenty of their youngsters about too. Head in the opposite direction, meanwhile and you’ll eventually come to Skidby Mill, Yorkshire’s last working windmill and a noted landmark on the Wolds skyline. The original warehouses surrounding the mill still stand and are used as a museum of rural life, with activities for children and an excellent café in the courtyard. It’s all just another historic feather in Butt Farm’s camping cap.

The Owner Says

(info supplied by the campsite)

Wow what a year.....we opened at Easter and have been overwhelmed by the kind words and positive reviews all our guests have given us.

They love the fact we are a small informal site, in an open field (often surrounded by our herd of cattle), however less than 2 miles from the beautiful market town of Beverley.

We have a welcome board at the entrance to the site with guests names and pitch numbers so there is no need to search for the reception when you arrive - which is something our guests love. 

There is a lovely new shower and toilet block which has an abundance of hot water due to our renewable boiler, as well as washing up facilities for campers.

If you have a dog or enjoy walking or cycling we have loads of walks & cycle routes direct from the campsite for you to enjoy. There are also loads of Geocaches in the area!

We have firepits which are available to hire if it gets a little chilly or if you just fancy toasting some marshmallows

Please check out our website www.buttfarm.co.uk for more information,

We look forward to welcoming you to Butt Farm soon,
