About Acorn Glade (a brief history):

In fact, in the early 1800's the Acorn Glade land was known as Grange Plantation being a Brick & Tile Yard, extracting clay to make locally sourced bricks over a 65 year period. These bricks were used to construct many of the bridges of the Melbourne section of the Pocklington Canal.

In late 2013 work commenced to create an idyllic off-grid glamping business on the site of the old brickyard. In mid 2014 the Acorn Glade brand was born. It started off with Bluebell Log Cabin, plus Poppy & Daisy Yurt.

In 2015 Acorn Glade was awarded the status of local wildlife site (LWS) by East Ridings of Yorkshire Council recognising the ecological importance and nature conservation. In late 2015 Rose Gypsy Wagon was purchased. Then it took 4 months over the winter to totally renovate her. Rose was added to the glamping portfolio in Spring 2016.

The lake at Acorn Glade is a result of water from an underground spring filling the largest of the old clay pits. Thereafter, we believe the Acorn Glade grounds and lake were possibly used as a recreational location around 1886 with a iron girder bridge across the lake to the island (as part of the bridge supports have been uncovered at the far end of the lake).
