White Cottage Pods

UK England North East England East Riding of Yorkshire Hornsea

A cute, quaint shepherdess' hut and luxurious pods in Hornsea, combining countryside with coast
Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep and is on her way to find them, so in the meantime, you can stay in her “shepherdess’ hut” in Hornsea’s White Cottage Pods. Father-and-daughter team Pat and Katie provide this whimsical backstory for their site’s quirky hut, with the famous nursery rhyme serving as the theme for this well-situated retreat that ideally combines countryside and coast.
Located on the outskirts of Yorkshire's Hornsea, White Cottage Pods is the product of experience. Pat is a dab hand at this holidaying business, working in the caravan industry for a significant period of time and having a wealth of knowledge when it comes to setting up holiday parks that visitors feel compelled to return to. White Cottage Holiday Park is his retirement plan, and alongside Katie, White Cottage Pods is a scenic installation set within their own 4 acre field within the 10 acre site of caravans and camping.

The site consists of Bo-Peep’s hut and two luxurious pods (though more are planned for the future); the former is best suited to couples, while the latter welcomes a family of four or a small group of friends. All are equipped with en-suite wetrooms and kept eco-friendly by way of their solar panels — which conserve energy by putting unused power back into the grid — and harvested rainwater made hot using a ground source heat pump. As Katie describes them, the pods “bring the outside inside”, with their circular glass entrances welcoming in the natural light and the lush greenery of your surroundings. While you are within the same site as the White Cottage Holiday Park, your spot is fenced off in the front field and kept away from the campers and caravaners, giving you the benefits of a communal holiday — the happy faces, the close proximity to nearby attractions — with added privacy.


Given White Cottage’s location, those seeking a countryside break or a beach holiday will be equally catered to. For the former, the Trans Pennine Trail runs past the western boundary of the park, this hotspot for walkers and cyclists granting you idyllic scenery to admire while you stretch your legs. Hornsea Mere is nearby, too, with the sprawling lake demanding a day of bird-watching and boat trips. For those seeking sea and sand, Hornsea seafront is but a short drive away, its peaceful Blue Flag beach and promenade a prime destination to tuck into your fish ‘n’ chips and watch the tide roll in. While Bo-Peep is probably never returning to White Cottage given the lack of sheep on the premises, not to mention the fact that she’s a work of fiction, you’ll be thankful that her absence has granted you such a quaint getaway.

The Owner Says

"Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn't know where to find them"
Thats because she is snuggled under her warm duvet listening to her kettle singing in her luxurious Shepherdess' Hut. When she's taken her shower in her ensuite wetroom she will be gone ( to look for them). That means you can rent her hut for a couple of nights (minimum) and sample her lifestyle.
Bo Peep's Hut offers a peaceful, quiet retreat set in the rural landscape just on the outskirts of Hornsea, a seaside town on the East Yorkshire Coast.
Alternatively, we have two really luxurious pods set in our Paddock which offer Twenty First Century Accommodation for Glamping in style!
