The Experience

The cabin is super-insulated so it’s toasty warm in winter and cool in summer, and cleverly designed, too – a nifty bunk bed is tucked into the hallway between the bedroom and living room. Head to the front deck for your morning cuppa or a yoga session looking out onto the pond, enjoy drinks next to the barbecue on the terrace or chat around the sunken firepit later at night.

The showstopper here has to be the brass tubs, set undercover and well back into the building, ensuring they’re private and cosy even in cold weather – what could be more perfect than a long soak while gazing out at the rain or the stars in the night sky?

You’re left plenty of logs for the fire (just fetch more from the honesty shed if you need them), a jar of local honey, some granola and Matt’s own homemade sloe gin. Collect eggs from the rescue hens or ducks. Roots Farm Shop and café is a ten-minute drive for stocking up, the coast is half an hour.

I stayed with my son and his family for three nights. The site is lovely, set in a small area of woodland, and the lodges are well spaced, well equipped and comfortable. The children loved it all - having a barbecue, lighting the log burner, seeing the sheep and the pigs, and didn’t seem to notice the lack of a TV at all. It’s such a good idea to keep the site traffic free as it was quiet and safe. Lovely to hear the birdsong. The local area is beautiful and there are plenty of places to visit and to eat out. It was our first experience of glamping and it proved a very positive one.

Set in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park this cabin in the woods is amazing for a long country weekend away. Close to lots of hikes and beautiful Yorkshire villages there's no shortage of country pubs for a quality roast when your feet are sore. And when you've finished your day out the best bit is coming back to the double outdoor bath tubs where you can sit back and enjoy a good soak surrounded by the sounds and smells of nature.

The neighbourhood

You're right by the North York Moors so keen walkers will be off from dawn till dusk. With free reign of the woodlands you can build dens and climb trees to your heart's content. There are two E-bikes for hire on-site with around 3 to 4 hours of battery life. £45 a day per bike. Osmotherley is a short walk and you can get all the basics you need. The Golden Lion pub is one mile, Betty's 7 miles.

Local points of interest from Matthew & Elizabeth Brown

  • Northallerton, Helmsley, York and Yarm are the ones worth stopping off in.
  • Walks - Cleveland Way, Lyke Wake Walk, Coast To Coast are the favourites and a walk to the village pub is a must.
  • 2 E-bikes available for hire on site! With around 3-4 hours of battery life, take advantage of the scenery and amazing forest tracks right from our back door. Please ask or email the Owners for more info! £45 per day, per bike.

Outdoors-loving Matt opened A Place In The Pines in 2012 after realising that his BBQ skills extraordinaire could be put to better use. He's working towards making the site completely off-grid with solar panels and battery systems. A bio system makes waste water fresh for the pond.
