‘A wildlife haven at your doorstep’
Wigwam® Holidays Ball Hall Farm is a true rural hideaway, surrounded by native woodland with all the cabins overlooking the lake. The site is tucked away in the Yorkshire countryside and feels far away from the daily grind, yet only 11 miles from York city centre
Each luxury glamping pod has a BBQ/fire pit so you can cook up some delicious food together in the sunshine, and then unwind around a crackling fire at night. Logs and firepit bundles can be purchased onsite from our log store.
The site is surrounded by native woodland such as Birch, Alder and Oak and to create more varied habitat, some interesting non natives have been planted. These include the Giant Sequoia, Swamp Cyprus and Dawn Redwood. Swamp Oak and Sweet Gum have also been added for their vivid Autumn colours.
The lake has been planted with water lilies and on the margins reeds and iris, these bring in a myriad of invertebrate life such as the many different species of dragon fly that can be seen. At dusk bats can be seen scouting for insects, and barn owls, red kites and herons are frequent visitors. Various waterfowl often raise a brood on the lake and even a pair swans arrive in springtime. If you are lucky you may see Roe Deere and hares are almost guaranteed!
We have a 6 acre woodland onsite, perfect for children to play in and make dens and great for early morning dog walks. Four of our wigwams are dog friendly and allow up to 2 dogs.
