Quaint shepherd's hut glamping beside a beautiful pond in the East Yorkshire countryside. Plus, your own private hot tub!

The Hodgson family certainly know a thing or two about diversification. Having worked the fields around Hall Farm since the 1920s, no fewer than four generations have seen the place develop, from horse ploughed fields in the early days right through to today’s tractor worked landscape. By 2008 they’d also opened their very own brewery, with cask ales crafted from their home-grown malting wheat, and now there’s yet another exciting development: The Little Otchan Shepherd Hut.

Named after the farm’s most popular beer, the fully en-suite hut is located half a mile away from the brewery itself, tucked against a flank of mature trees and overlooking a pond. It is the only glamping hut on the site, offering complete privacy, with the built in double bed and private hot tub making it a perfect retreat for couples. Outside there’s a firepit for that essential campfire, while, within, small touches include a vintage-style digital radio, a retro microwave and a wood-burning stove to keep you warm all year round.

The countryside setting attracts more than just glampers, too. The shelter of the woodland behind and the water of the lily-dotted pond before you draws a wide variety of wildlife. Though elusive, roe deer can occasionally be spotted among the trees when you’re particularly quiet, while kestrels, woodpeckers and buzzards also frequent the woods. Dragonflies, damselflies and more flicker across the surface of the pond. It’s one of the great benefits of being such a small and undisturbed camping area – most of the animals hardly notice you’re there.

If you do find the time to slip away, a quick drive east to the coast reveals one of the longest and straightest stretches of sand in the UK, reaching all the way north to Bridlington. From Hall Farm you’re closest to the southern end, where the beach curls around the edge of the River Humber, forming the famous landscape of Spurn Point, a popular nature reserve. In land, meanwhile, Hull provides plenty of more urban attractions ideal for days when there isn’t seaside weather.

The Little Otchan Hut is in the middle of Yorkshire's nature triangle, which includes the unique nature reserve of Spurn Point out on the very edge of the coast where the River Humber meets the sea. It's a mere 5 minute drive to the nearest beach – the dead straight sands along Withernsea, Waxholme and beyond while, inland, the 2017 'capital city of culture', Hull, has plenty to offer. Highlights include the excellent aquarium (01482 381000), the Maritime Museum (01482 300300) and the city's walking tours. If the farm brewery has got you in the mood, then the ale trail is a particular highlight.

Food & Drink

Two excellent local butchers nearby – East Riding Country Pork (01964 671137) or Melbourne Butchers (01964 670241) – both offer a range of local meats, breads and deserts, while the nearest pub is 2 miles away (5 minute drive or a 40 minute walk The Roos Arms  01964 670353). The Nancy Inn (01964 671117) is 3 miles away and The Boatshed in Withernsea is well worth a visit if you like real ale and cider. All these pubs stock beer from Little Otchan's very own brewery (01946 612201), which operates on the farm. Withernsea is the nearest town where there's a large supermarket and fish mongers which is well worth a visit (Winghams Fish; 01964 614239) – there's a fish and chip shop (01964 612322) by the village's central roundabout. For more diverse  options however, drive the half hour to Hull, which offers an huge array of restaurants offering cuisine from all corners of the globe.

Lovely relaxing stay

We stopped for 2 nights for our 9th wedding anniversary and it was lovely. It was so relaxing and we definitely recharged our batteries. The welcome drinks were a lovely touch. The hot tub is fab and the fire and tree lights are so cosy and pretty. I would definitely recommend to others.

An amazing slice of paradise

We had a wonderful get-away-from-everything weekend at this secluded little glade. My husband loves lighting fires, so he cooked on the open fire and heated up the hot tub whilst I relaxed and listened to the birdsong. The owners had left local beer, tea, coffee and milk, which were lovely little touches to make us feel welcome, but apart from speaking to them as we arrived (as they were in their garden) we didn't see them at all, which was perfect for our idea of a private weekend away. We did venture out for a lovely meal at The Nancy in Burton Pidsea, thoroughly recommended! We will definitely be back!

A perfect get away from it all place

This was an amazing place where we came to unwind and relax. It was totally secluded and peaceful, and the weather was kind to us. We loved everything about it, the little touches that the owners had left such as the bottles of local beer, tea coffee and milk, were really welcome. There were plenty of logs for the fires and the hot tub under the stars was a particular highlight for me. We ate at The Nancy at Burton Pidsea one night which was recommended and not far. The food was gorgeous and the service top notch. We will be back!

Stunning Shepherds hut ideal get away

Stayed here with my husband and had a fabulous time. The hut has everything you need a true home from home feel and the hot tub is amazing and it over looks the pond. We felt totally alone and away from it all and hammock and fire pit added to the occasion. They have there own brewery!! and gave two free beers on arrival which where lovely. We also purchased a fire pit pack which locally sourced meats delicious :). We will certainly be back.
