When staying with us at The Private Hill you'll be able to enjoy numerous nearby activities and attractions.  

Explore the farm, watch the sunset and picnic from the 'Top of the World', discover the wildlife,

talk to the pet sheep, or perhaps collect the freshest of eggs direct from our home bred free-range

Rhode Island Red chickens.


Book an Alpaca Walking Tour with Perseus, Renoir, or Ziggy.


When you've had enough of that and need to get out and about there's Flamingo Land, Eden Camp,

Castle Howard, the outstandingly beautiful town of Malton or, slightly further afield,

the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby.


Malton Food Festival is not to be missed and a visit to some of the truly fabulous local food shops

is an absolute must before heading home.


Helmsley, the Wolds, Pickering and Pocklington are just some of the other wonders that are nearby, and well worth exploring, as well as the incredibly beautiful City of York which is only 25 mins away.

Culture, City Tours, Museums, Boat Trips and History.

Bring your mountain bikes and go off into the lanes (but watch out for the tractors!)

Enjoy a glass of Wine, a cold Beer, or a delicious G&T. 

Watch the spectacular sunsets from the top of Curlew Hill

or escape for lunch with a The Private Hill picnic and a bottle of champagne!

We are so lucky to have numerous, and varied, walks that start at the gate and include fantastic scenery -  you really don't get much better. Book an Alpaca Walking Experience Tour and learn about these magical, kind, animals as you explore the diverse nature and habitats on the farm.



Bring your mountain bike and go explore at your own pace. Then come back to your own steaming hot shower within your very own private dome.


Let us show you around a real working farm with some interesting history. Meet some of the animals and listen to their story. 



If you just need some 'down' time then why not relax right here at The Private Hill. Curl up with a book, admire the views, and let us spoil you with a Traditional Afternoon Tea.

While away the hours, or even the day, just chilling with nature and the extraordinary peace and tranquillity that is all around. It's good for the spirit, the soul, and the heart!
