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, Covid-safe place, where you can relax with your family and friends, with a wood-burning stove and heating, even in the depths of winter. Enjoy a range of hot and cold drinks, or something stronger, from the fully licensed bar. ​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.

Debussy Dome - From £210/night (midweek) or from £230/night (weekends) Please note weekend nights are Friday, Saturday & Sunday. (Min. Two Night Stay)

All other domes from £180/night (midweek) or from £195/night (weekends) (Please note there is a child supplement per child/per stay in Duchess Dome throughout the year of £30.00/child/stay) (Min. Two Night Stay)

What makes a stay at The Private Hill unique?

The Private Hill is a destination with very low density. Somewhere to escape the crowds. 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. 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, a small stocked minibar (soft drinks), hot shower and flushing toilet.

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.

Arrival information and directions

Address: Thrussendale Farm, Thrussendale Road, 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.
