The Private Hill

Acklam, Nr Malton, North Yorkshire, England

Luxurious geodesic domes with views over the North York Moors sleep 2-4 people near Malton.

On the outskirts of the stunning North York Moors, set up high on a hill you can discover 4 luxury Geodesic Domes, each sleeping up to 2 adults and 2 children near Malton.  

Private Hill is a 5 Star Gold by Quality in Tourism award winner, as well as Unique Accommodation Accolade for 2019/20.

Named after the prized pedigree Aberdeen Angus Cattle on the farm on which this site sits, the domes are 40m2 in size and feature a deluxe super-king size bed, which can be changed into a twin if required. With luxurious soft sheets and even a choice of pillows you could be forgiven for thinking you are staying in a top hotel, until you glance at the stunning views around you. If you want to bring children along then there are 2 cool hanging cocoon style beds for those under age 7 or a comfy sofa bed for those aged 8 plus.  The modern bathroom with hot water shower and flushing toilet is a bonus, no more traipsing across muddy fields at night here!

The domes also feature a kitchenette with Nespresso coffee machine, fridge freezer and Miele microwave oven and if you fancy cooking why not pop over to their onsite shop which sells locally produced products including their own delicious Aberdeen Angus steaks - perfect for the BBQ! Alternatively enjoy a bite to eat at Jane's Dome where you can enjoy a North Yorkshire breakfast or a full afternoon cream tea! 

After a busy day exploring the local area sit back and relax on your private deck with a drink in hand from your own minibar whilst listening to the sounds of nature around you, or link your mobile to the supplied Sonos Music system! 

Locally you can enjoy hiking on the North York Moors, visit the seaside town of Scarborough or the beautiful city of York. Children will enjoy exploring the farm and may at times be allowed to collect eggs or ride on the tractor! Alternatively take a trip to Flamingo Land or Eden Camp, lots of fun for all the family.
