The Private Hill is a destination. Somewhere to leave the real world behind and to immerse yourself in pure indulgence, in the privacy of stunning nature.
Helmsley, the Wolds, Pickering and Pocklington are just some of the wonders that are nearby, and well worth exploring, as well as the incredibly beautiful City of York which is only 25 mins away.
Enjoy all the benefits of this breathtaking setting, with views for miles, but without the need to put your wellies on – unless you want to! Watch the home bred pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle lazily graze the lush grass, or the sheep as they busy themselves around the farm, all from the safety and comfort of your own little piece of North Yorkshire
The farm hosts superb geodesic domes, each named after one of its own prized pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle. Every dome is just like a room you would expect to find in a 5 star boutique hotel with sumptuously comfortable twin, or super king beds (your choice on booking), luxury sheets and duvets, a choice of pillows and of course a stocked minibar fridge with a small freezer too.
A maximum of two adults can be accommodated in each dome plus up to two children who have a choice of either rather cool hanging ‘cocoon’ style beds (max.age 8) or a comfy two seater sofa bed for those a little older and taller.
Inside is a gorgeous wood burning stove, a small kitchenette with a Nespresso coffee machine and microwave oven, plus access to Sonos music. You’ll find views that stretch for over 60 miles when you open your curtains on a fine day.
The site opens in June and remains open year round.
As a small, low density, property set on a gorgeous hillside in North Yorkshire with considerable spacing between each of our luxury, fully ensuite, domes we have and continue to take our COVID-19 responsibilities extremely seriously. Not only to protect our Guests but also the wonderful team that works at The Private Hill.
Social distancing is easy here due to our layout and with breakfasts, and all other meals, delivered (contactless) to domes as part of our Room Service Experience, if required, we are probably one of the safest post-lockdown destination choices with a maximum of 8 adult guests on site at any one time.
With hand sanitisation points outside, and inside, our Jane’s Dome check-in area each guest dome has also been provided with individual gel hand sanitisers for new guests, antibacterial surface wipes, and an antibacterial surface spray bottle to be used by guests as and when necessary.
Domes are deep cleaned, and sanitised to a very high level, between guests using antibacterial products on all touch points.
Laundry (incl. towels) is washed at 60 degrees and staff temperatures are checked, and recorded, before and mid-way through each shift
