Warwick Brindle visited The Private Hill with family and friends recently. This is what he had to say about it:
“Not being a glamper, I was a little hesitant about what I was going to find at The Private Hill when a family member set up a private getaway taking over all four domes there.
“However, on arrival the immediate impact was positive. I really liked the look and shape of the domes from the outside. The way that Roddy has planned them in the setting and as part of the landscape of the hill is stunning.
“After our welcome drinks and check in, I was keen to see the inside of our dome – we stayed in Druid.
“ All I can say is wow – the inside of our dome was excellent – very homely and well furnished, and the Mrs, who is partial to 5 star luxury, was at home straight away! She was even more delighted when she saw our private ensuite in the dome – a pristine shower, toilet and washbasin complimented with The White Stuff toiletries.
“The view was breathtaking and it felt like our peace of luxury in the middle of no-where.
“Once we had unpacked and settled in, we met the family on the terrace of Jane’s Dome for drinks and to watch the sunset. The idea of the café in the centre of the domes is an added welcome benefit, many glamping places leave you to your own devices but this fully licensed facility added to the 5 star feel.
“Over all the experience is very different to camping and glamping, It’s a little like a boutique 5 star hotel, but with the benefits of being at one with nature and the countryside.
“The location is ideal – this part of North Yorkshire is a jewel, a very nice and popular area for all age groups.
“All in all The Private Hill is an excellent private get away for romantic couples, friends, families and celebrations. The set up will be ideal for post covid-19 holidaying and we truly hope the whole industry and Roddy can open up again very soon!”
