THE PRIVATE HILL

'YORKSHIRE HOSPITALITY AT ITS VERY BEST'

Sitting proudly right on the edge of the North Yorkshire Wolds The Private Hill offers unspoilt views for many miles across the Vale of York. 

 

An ideal, year-round, and rather special destination.

A small, romantic, multi-award winning, luxury escape where you can expect impeccable, super friendly, world class service and hotel standards of comfort.

With just four geodesic domes, each named after one of the farm's earlier pedigree Aberdeen Angus Cattle, you are assured of optimum levels of comfort and wellbeing with your own truly private en-suite facility, hot shower, flushing toilet and a small kitchenette.

 

All domes, except Debussy, offer couples or family accommodation with a maximum of two adults in every dome.

 

A warm and cosy space to relax, unwind, and reconnect,

throughout the year with an efficient wood burning stove in all domes.

You certainly won't need to give up the comforts of home either  at this ultra low density property with outstanding facilities including an Electric Vehicle charge point.

 A stay at The Private Hill includes options for a delicious freshly prepared, and healthy, breakfast basket for two to start the day. Delivered each morning to your very own dome door.

​If you'd like to bring the wider family and take the whole place exclusively, and very privately, you will simply need to book each dome individually as a separate booking.

In the Online Store digital Gift Vouchers are available for you to give your friends, or loved ones, or you can book an exciting Alpaca Walking Experience. What an amazing treat for someone special..... 

 

Regrettably dogs are not allowed at The Private Hill

OUR STORY

The Private Hill  was always intended to be a low-density destination. Somewhere you can escape the challenges of

day-to-day life for a moment. Somewhere to indulge, to enjoy beautiful scenery,

to breath fresh air, and to reconnect at 

North Yorkshire's most private

luxury boutique property.

Our motto: 

“Do it today and you will be closer

to where you want to be tomorrow"

THE FARM

The Private Hill sits right in the middle of Thrussendale Farm but is a totally farm-free area ! Enjoy all the benefits of being in an absolutely gorgeous, and natural, setting with quite exceptional views but without the need to put your wellies on.........

unless of course you want to!

Watch the sheep as they busy themselves around the farm, or the kind and inquisitive Alpacas, all from the comfort of your own little piece of  North Yorkshire. Explore the 3km mown path around the farm and connect with nature. Re-establish your core values, your core interests.

The perfect place to re-charge and to support local food and drink businesses 

proud to supply The Private Hill

Thanks for submitting!

Getting Here - 

If coming by car please do not use the postcode with SatNav as most of the houses in and around the village of Acklam seem to share the same one! You'll end up in the middle of the village and may not see anyone to ask directions.

Instead, please put the village of Acklam (North Yorkshire NOT Middlesbrough!) into your SatNav and then Thrussendale Road.

 

That should bring you to The Private Hill entrance which you will see discreetly signposted off the lane just past the farm. If all that fails please just call and we will 'talk you in'. Luckily mobile phone signal in this part of the County is incredibly good.

If coming by train to Malton just let us know what time you will arrive and we will happily collect you and drop you back when you leave. All a complimentary part of

The Private Hill Experience. 

If coming to The Private Hill in

an Electric Vehicle there is now an

EV Charge Point available to Guests. So no need for any range anxiety here!
