We stayed at Alum House for 2 nights in the Jenny Wren Bell Tent and had the most amazing time. Michelle and Glen were the best hosts and made us feel so welcome. I booked this trip for my girlfriends birthday and it certainly didn't disappoint with the home made cream cakes on arrival and the special decorations inside the tent for our arrival. We also took our dog diesel and the walks from the doorstep are beautiful and perfect for dogs! He even had a play with zola and fell in love with the place! I would highly recommend anyone looking for an amazing getaway! We will be back for definite! X

Liked: We've stayed at a few Yurts over the years and this one one of the best. The owners are super friendly and can't do enough to help. Highly recommend contacting them directly as they can add those special touches, it was my partners Birthday and they really went the extra mile to make the visit special.

Lovely place for a weekend getaway. The tent is really well equipped and lots of space for a family with young children. The hot tub was great, the kids loved it and it was perfect for relaxing with bubbles after they had gone to bed. The kitchen and bathroom whilst small were fine for a weekend away. Michelle and Glen were really lovely and helpful, the bacon butties on the last morning were well received! Overall a great place to stay!

We stayed over the bank holiday weekend and had an amazing experience. Michelle and Glen were fantastic hosts and so eager to help with anything.We stayed in the barn owl tent with the newly installed log fired hot tub. It's more of a tub than a hot tub compared to the other two tents however it was so much more relaxing and comfortable than the usual hot tubs as you could lie down.It was such a romantic set up with fairy lights, a log burner in the tent and being able to lie under the stars with a loved one.The tent has everything you need with gas burners and utensils outside the tent for private use and also a shared kitchen at the end of the toilet block.You have a private bathroom with toilet and shower. The shower is a tad small however for the time your away this is easy enough to deal with.Really would check out their website and have a look, we will definitely be returning in the near future.

Very tranquil and beautiful setting. We had everything we needed and Michelle was welcoming and helpful. The pizzas were nice and appreciated after a long day out. Perfect for families or groups of friends.

Partner and i stayed here for 2 nights for her birthday. Michelle had kindly left some cakes and put some birthday related things out in the tent which made it more special. The tent, hot tub, outside area, toilet/washroom and kitchen area was all very impressive. Alum house have their own food menu, we had some pizzas they were too spot on.Very ideal if your plan is to go walking as theres loads of footpaths etc on the doorstep.Wasnt a problem for us but if you’re a bigger set human being then you’ll find the shower a bit of a squeeze.I’d certainly go back

We had a fantastic 4 day break at Alum House. Michelle and Glen could not have done more for us. It was our sons 3rd birthday and he was treated to a home made cake, which he loved. We also had homemade food from Michelle - pizzas and nachos, which were lovely.The location is fantastic, very quiet and peaceful. For kids, its pure nature - they can plodge in the river, chase chickens and play pooh sticks from the nearby bridge. The whole place reminded me of 'The Darling Buds of May' TV program :)The tent was warm and cosy, and the private bathroom immaculate. Would definitely visit again. Thanks Michelle and Glen for the memories!

The most gorgeous and tranquil little place, Michelle couldn't do enough for us to ensure our stay was a comfortable one. We had such a great time. The tent was fab with everything we needed, clean and spacious (we stayed in Roe Deer) and visited Staithes and Whitby during our time here. The hot tub was a definite highlight. I definitely reccomend. Great stay. Thank you!

Amazing long weekend away. Host were fantastic and knew would help if anything was wrong but all was perfect and the Glamping set up is just what i was after, couldn't have asked for more. Hot tub was great and the stars on a night crystal clear. Pizzas were delicious. 5 minute drive to park and ride better than parking in Whitby and 5 minutes to Foss Falls. Didn't take many pictures was too busy relaxing and having a tipple. Dog friendly and Zola host dog is so cute and friendly. Thank you.

Our second visit and hopefully won’t be our last. The ‘accommodation’ is comfortable, snug and in the most delightful peaceful setting. The hot tub is a lovely addition to relax in under the night sky and when you’re done there’s the added bonus of your own shower and bathroom. The stone bake pizza are definitely worth a try and your host will deliver them to you. Situated just a short ride to|the coast it’s the perfect retreat.

positive review We had a beautiful 4 night stay, and it was perfect. Amazing hosts, beautiful surroundings and peace.
The accommodation is clean and well though out.
Lovely residents in the form of ducks, chickens and a cute pooch.
Great location for trips out, half way between Whitby and Goathland (Harry Potter and heartbeat fans)
Could have stayed forever ! A real slice of paradise ✨️

positive review This place is wonderful, we had a great weekend staying. Very clean and tidy, it was nice to have our own space around the bell tent. Often sites are busy and packed tightly together.

We would definitely recommend this…

It easily looked after 2 adults, 2 boys and a wee dog..🤩

Good work team, you are doing a great job!

This is a gorgeous place. The tents are large and the bed is so comfortable. We had everything we needed and in a beautiful setting. Wood burning stove made it very cosy on the tent when it was a cold night. Michelle was very helpful and made us very welcome. Great place to explore the local coastline and villages. Our dog loved it, although he really wanted to chase the ducks! Definitely will be booking again

Liked: Literally everything! The couple running the place couldn’t do more for us!! We used the BBQ on the first night, the hot tub on multiple occasions and toasted s’mores on our final night over the fire! The sound of the river is sooo relaxing when getting to sleep and i went home dreaming of the bed! We had the best stay and I couldn’t recommend it more.

Liked: Was fantastic, glamping tent great, bed comfy, had everything you need for a relaxing break. Loved spending the evenings sat around the fire chatting and reading. Spent the days visiting local towns such as Whitby and doing walks on the moors to see the waterfalls. Hosts were lovely felt relaxed and welcoming

Liked: Our stay at Alum House was just perfect. We stayed in the Roe Deer and everything we needed was thought of. Michelle was a lovely host and met us on arrival to show us around the yurt and facilities. The grounds are really well kept and toilet/shower block is immaculate. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely look at booking again in the future.

Liked: The location was beautiful, it was very clean, it was really quiet, the bell tent was pretty and very comfortable and the hot tub was perfect- there's no WiFi so it's a really great chance to step away from everything

Absolutely stunning location, so quiet we could hear the stream bubbling and the owls hooting in the night, we had the Jenny Wren bell tent with two adults and two children and there was plenty of room. Loads of outside space to run around, the owners are so friendly, and tent itself was so pretty! Clean bathroom with full shower, super comfortable bed too. We told Michelle it was our son's birthday and she very kindly set up balloons and lights for him for a small fee which just made his weekend.Hot tub was very welcome in the evenings once the kids were asleep, we will be back! Definitely recommend.
