We stayed in a luxury glamping pod on the Yorkshire coast

This family-run glamping site offers astonishing coastal views in a luxurious setting.

Situated in beautiful East Yorkshire, Flamborough Glamping and Vineyard has everything you need for a perfect weekend getaway.

Summer has officially ended, but in a final attempt to basque in the sunshine and experience that holiday feeling, I booked a weekend in a glamping pod on the Yorkshire coast.

Nestled in between the wild East Yorkshire heritage coast and the tranquil village of Flamborough, this family-run glamping site offers astonishing coastal views in a luxurious setting.

Saturday morning came around, my car was packed and off I went. After less than two hours I was sat on my private porch enjoying a glass of wine, overlooking the thousands of flourishing vines and breathing in the fresh sea air. It was hard to believe that just moments ago I was in the hustle and bustle of the city.

There are eight pods on the site, distanced far enough away from each other so that you experience the privacy and exclusivity that you’re after. Inside they are furnished to the highest quality, featuring a comfortable double bed, an en-suite bathroom with a fantastic shower and a kitchen with all the essentials.

Within an instant I felt right at home, my shoes were plonked immediately by the door and the slippers were slipped on, relaxation mode was well and truly activated. Although I could’ve stayed in that cosy pod all night, I ventured into the quaint and charming village of Flamborough for a wonder and bite to eat.

Fish and chips from The Lighthouse Fisheries felt like the obvious choice and it most definitely hit the spot, I was on the coast after all. There’s a few lovely, traditional pubs dotted around the village to enjoy a drink amongst the locals, I grew fond of The Royal Dog & Duck which was jam packed with old Fishermen heirlooms and whose welcome felt like a warm hug.

A momentous coastal walk was on the cards for the next morning, so a short stroll back to the pod with the lighthouse glaring in the distance for what was one of the best nights sleep of my life was in order.

If you’ve ever heard of the phrase ‘blow the cobwebs away’, then exploring the many coasts surrounding Flamborough in mid-September will do just that. Off I went on a 4-hour walk from my pod to Flamborough head then curving round the cliffs toward Thornwick Bay and North Landing. The views were astonishing and though the wind was brisk, it was well worth it in the end.

Returning back to the site and I was glad to find solace in my comfortable cosy nook, a glass of wine and an early night was just what the doctor ordered as I flicked on the TV and put my feet up.
