William’s Den is just 30 minutes drive away, and is a unique family day out where the kids (and big kids!) can play and roam indoors and outdoors whatever the weather. It’s an adventure play park like no other! If you’re visiting us from the West or South, then this might be a good one to do either on your way to us or on the day you leave as it’s almost back to the M62 motorway. Be sure to book your spot as it’s hugely popular!
Mr Moo’s Ice Cream Parlour & Cafe
Mr Moo’s is a 15 minute drive away towards the coast (near Skipsea) you’ll find this well-established favourite with locals and visitors alike. Serving morning coffee, afternoon tea, delicious ice-cream sundaes and homemade lunches. It’s a great spot for parking up and walking down to the beach and working up an appetite for all the yummy delights they serve!
Tophill Low Nature Reserve
Tophill Low is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a must see for all your budding nature enthusiasts. With a fantastic new state of the art reception hide that opened in 2017, fully equipped with telescopes and binoculars, you can view thousands of the wildfowl that live on the reservoirs and wetlands straight away. Then head off through the woodlands to sit in one of the other hides that lookout at special areas for Otters and Kingfishers. Open daily and just a 20-minute drive away, we think this might even be the spot that some of our Kingfishers take their first flight, as it’s actually only a stone’s throw away as the crow (or should that be the Kingfisher!) flies over the fields behind the campsite.
Side Oven Bakery
Side Oven Bakery is just outside Foston village (about 10 minutes drive away towards Driffield) and is a very special place, an organic farm and bakery run by a family passionate about the provenance of their produce. They manufacture a whole range of award-winning products such as their breakfast bars, mueslis and granolas, as well as organic juices and cordials. They hold regular farm open day events throughout the year so you can tour the farm and buy some scrummy baked goods (not open to the Public in general, only on these open days so check their page for events).
Leven Canal is a ruggedly beautiful waterway, where you can walk up either side and cross over a bridge with nothing but countryside stretching out ahead of you. You will certainly spot wild birds and flowers along your route. The canal was built to improve trade links between Hull and the village of Leven.
