"I had my surprise hen party last weekend here at the lovely Wild Harvest. We camped in the wooden tipis. The crafts we did were flower crowns and beeswax lip balms, both were so much fun. Di was a wonderful hostess and a lovely teacher, full of knowledge, a very inspirational woman!! I personally loved the log burners and pizza ovens!! The pizzas we had were gorgeous cooked in the ovens. The kitchen area was spot on!! Loved the eco friendly feel to the setting !! I had the best time. The beautiful surroundings, the fantastic setting with all the amenities you’d need, and the company were next to none. The ducks and chickens freely wandering added to the atmosphere. I’d love to come again!! Thank you to my gorgeous Hens for arranging and for bringing everything, and thank you to Di"
There really is nothing nicer than sitting around a fire with your loved ones, and friends, old and new... having a mug of wine, while the food sizzles over the fire and the pizzas bake in the wood-fired oven.
Chatting excitedly about the days activities... maybe you'll have a fun archery session where someone pulls out a last-minute bullseye in the competition round, or maybe you'll be nibbling on the wild food you foraged with one of the countries leading wild food experts, topping your burgers or pizza with your foraged finds. All the activities right there on-site, so you don't even need to drive. Perhaps you'll enjoy a chilled crafts session over a glass of wine and then look forward to getting ready for a night out in the beautiful city of York.
However you choose to spend your time at Wild Harvest, we guarantee you will enjoy it! Read just a few of our great reviews below.
"Just had my hen do at wild harvest, it was lovely so homely and would recommend to everyone. Di and her staff are lovely and if you needed help at all they would move the world to help. The actives where great and loved making my own fire and sitting with friends and family."
"We are back from a fabulous weekend staying in the gorgeous teepees at Wild Harvest. The weekend was amazing from sitting round the fire pit, cooking pizzas in the pizza oven to all the lovely little extras Di put on. We loved the food foraging adventure and the bath bombing making! I can not recommend this place enough we all thoroughly enjoyed it and cant wait to come back xx"
"We had the most amazing weekend at Wild Harvest. Di couldn’t have done more for us. Very attentive and accommodating. Everyone in our party loved the quirkiness of it all. Our activities were great and offered us something a little different to just a night out. Highly recommend this place for a chilled weekend away ".
All our crafts are made with natural materials and no mechanisation. Each guest goes home with a goodie bag of their top quality hand-made items.
Bring your Tribe for a wild food foraging walk to discover all the free, healthy edible weeds growing all around you.
Our sessions are designed to be fun but informative. Enjoy learning with your friends, about the natural materials around you and how you can use them.
Activities are an essential part of our offering. We are fundamentally a sustainable education venue embedded in glamping and we need our groups to take two, one hour activities per weekend. Midweek stays this is not necessary. Check out our Family Camping Page for Midweek Stays. Activities are kept affordable at £12 to £18 per guest.
