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: Little Otchan Glamping.

Named after the farm’s most popular beer, the fully en-suite hut (soon to be joined by some bell tents) 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.

Our little corner of East Yorkshire is very special! Little Otchan Glamping 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 – perfect for a family trip to the seaside to enjoy the straight sands along Withernsea, and beyond while, inland, the 2017 'capital city of culture', Hull, has plenty to offer. The area is also dotted with villages with lots of pubs and cafes to enjoy whilst exploring the area. We love that there are big skies and wide open spaces which give a sense of freedom and contentment. 

Food & Drink

Alongside beer, which of course we have our very own to enjoy there are a lot of places to eat and 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 – there's a fish and chip shop (01964 612322) by the town's central roundabout. 


All year round.

Marvellous location and venue.

With three live fire opportunities - Salamander Hobbit wood burner in the shepherd's hut; fire pit outside for cooking; wood-fired hot tub - this is a great experience. The hut itself is extremely well appointed and very comfortable. The hot tub is brilliant: much better than the usual offering and the pond creates a really special atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Very romantic setting perfect for special occasions

Very romantic and peaceful. Had everything we needed. Plenty of wood for burning. Perfect for romantic getaway. Would highly recommend it.We will be returning.

Fantastic retreat

We stayed here early October. It was a surprise for my partner and it paid off. It was perfect. Great facilities in the hut, down to salt and even cooking oil. The hot tub is a massive bonus. The only reason we couldn't use the firepit was because of the wind. Would maybe be a good idea to put a wind break/fence up around this area as quite open. We are hoping to stay again in winter when hopefully they'll be a little frost, possibly snow...

Wonderful escape from the world

We had a really lovely time here, everything was clean and tidy. The packs we had ordered were everything we hoped for. The place itself was lovely, nice and remote really allowing us to relax and unwind. The hot tub in particular was a real treat!

Fantastic Gem of a Place

The Shepherds Hut was clean, had everything you needed, great private lake, lovely tea lights and hot tub with a fire pit. Owner was very friendly and helpful. This is a place to go for some lovely nature, peace and quiet, fishing and to chill. Will definitely be visiting again :-)

The ultimate glamping experience in your own private space. It really is as advertised. Lovely shepherds hut, cute and efficient hot tub, your own pond and fire pit. There's lots of outdoor seating, and you can move round to other side of pond to catch the sun. We loved it. Weather was lovely one day and a bit ho hum the next, but it didn't matter.

Thank you for a lovely review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Jonathan and Catherine 

Absolutely perfect!

Our stay was perfect from beginning to end. You are given absolute privacy with the key left in the door on your arrival. The pond is magnificent; just watching the wildlife is entertainment alone. Everything has been thought of both inside and outside of the hut, with relaxing lounger chairs, an outdoor dining area, the marvellous camp fire area and, of course, the hot tub. We cooked all of our meals on the campfire and the fridge is extremely handy for keeping your food fresh until mealtime. Sitting around the fire and watching as the solar lights start to spring to life was my favourite part of our stay. Waking up early to read my book in the arbour with a cup of tea beside the pond was bliss too. I will definitely return to Little Otchan and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Relaxing Getaway

Had a lovely stay at Little Otchan. Celebrated our Anniversary and my Birthday. The Hut is beautiful inside and has everything you need. Very clean and a lovely comfy bed. Used the lovely hot tub and it was so relaxing and quiet overlooking the pond. We ordered the Breakfast pack and campfire pack and both worth the money. Hoping to book again now for later in the year probably for 3 nights rather than 2.

A really good weekend

We had a really good weekend in the hut, lots of nice little touches that make it that bit more special and it was also helped by the good weather as we was able to head out and explore the surrounding area, I would definitely recommend.

Lovely few days here - especially enjoyed the hot tub.

We had a relaxing and enjoyable few days at Little Otchan - the hut is very cosy and compact. The hot tub did take quite a few hours to warm up, but then it stayed warm for as long as we needed it. Also close to Withernsea and other attractions. Thank you.

Hidden Gem

We had the most amazing time cooking outside watching the wildlife & sitting under the stars with a glass of fizz. Inside was so cozy & warm the bed was very comfy the books, radio & the simple things to do were just lovley. Thank you so much

Perfect romantic weekend

What a fabulous little place to stay... the hut is absolutely beautiful and equipped with everything you may need. The extra breakfast and firepit packs are excellent value for money and the hot tub was a real treat. We had a fantastic weekend here, can't wait to go back!

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!

This place is amazing! We came here for my partners 21st and we loved every second! So private and peaceful, we will defiantly be coming back and We can’t wait! We arrived to a welcome sign and two bottles of beer that was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend this place x

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.
