A working farm at Storwood near East Cottingwith has launched a new venture to attract visitors to the area.

The venue, owned by the Medley family, is now offering people the chance to get away from their everyday woes and enjoy some time in a wigwam next to a beautiful lake and peaceful woodland.

The family has installed six Running Water Deluxe Wigwam® Cabins and are now attracting guests to the site.

An additional six cabins are set to in place by June 2019 at Ball Hall Farm.

The site’s owner James Medley said: “We are delighted to join the Wigwam® Holidays brand and offer guests the best experience in glamping cabins.

“Our working farm, which include a herd of cattle, also includes a large area of woodland, so it is a very peaceful location.

“The cabins are top-of-the-range models which sleep up to a family of four comfortably. The cabins include two double beds, a kitchenette, toilet, shower and a dining area.

“We are looking forward to greeting our first guests this month.”

The new attraction is based along a peaceful country lane about seven miles from Pocklington. Wigwam® Holidays Ball Hall Farm received funding to support the installation of 12 luxury Wigwam® Cabins from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development/LEADER Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways.
