The Private Hill



You will find The Private Hill on the edge of the magnificent North Yorkshire Wolds, boasting uninterrupted views across the Vale of York, along with the purest air, which provides an immediate sense of wellbeing, calm and tranquillity. A warm and inviting place, where you can relax with your family and friends, with a wood-burning stove and heating, even in the depths of winter. 

What makes a stay at The Private Hill unique?

The Private Hill is a destination with very low density. Somewhere where you can leave the real world behind you. Somewhere to plunge into pure indulgence, nature and harmony at the most intimate boutique in North Yorkshire, where impeccable, super friendly, comfortable service and hotel standards combine with nature. The magnificent Geodesic Domes are truly en-suite, each named after their previous Aberdeen Angus Cattle. There's no need in the middle of the night to cross a wet, windy and most often cold, field or decking when staying at The Private Hill. Each 40 m2 dome is like a room that you would expect to find in a luxury boutique hotel, featuring a sumptuously comfortable twin or superking bed (add your preference at the time of booking), luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen, a selection of pillows and a small stocked minibar.

What is there to see and do at The Private Hill?

Explore the farm, experience the animals, chat with the sheep, or maybe collecting the freshest of the home-bred Rhode Island Red chickens free-range eggs is what you would rather. The Private Hill even has its own small herd of Alpacas where you can book onto a walking tour with either Perseus, Renoir, or Ziggy. Bring your mountain bike with you and take it into the lanes, making sure to watch out for the tractors. Watch the beautiful sunset while enjoying a glass of wine, a cold beer, or an outstanding G&T from the fully licensed Cafe & Bar or just play Croquet, Boules or Quoits.

Other Information


As a small, low density, property set on a gorgeous hillside in North Yorkshire with considerable spacing between each of the luxury, fully ensuite, domes they have and continue to take COVID-19 responsibilities extremely seriously. Not only to protect Guests but also the wonderful team that works at The Private Hill.

Social distancing is easy here due to the layout and with breakfasts, and all other meals, delivered (contactless) to domes as part of the Room Service Experience, if required, The Private Hill is 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, the 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

Get directions

Thrussendale Farm, Thrussendale Road, Acklam, Malton, North Yorkshire, AcklamYO17 9RG, United Kingdom

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 Middlesborough) 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.
