Wressle Grange

In brief: Luxury self-catering accommodation on a working arable farm just a few miles from York.
Our highlight: Wressle Grange Farmhouse is perfect for group celebrations, with a welcome hamper of locally-sourced treats and a hot tub.
Insider guide: Annabel’s Abode (which is pet-friendly), George’s Gaff and Rusty’s Retreat are three self-catering cottages, each with its own private garden – and it is possible to book all the accommodation, or a combination, for a large group. This retreat is run by fourth-generation farmers, and their arable farm grows wheat, barley, oilseed rape and linseed. The accommodation is heated by a biomass boiler and when the clouds clear at night, you can see the stars.

Insider guide: Surrounded by woodland and farmland, family-run and dog-friendly Lahtle Wood Glamping sweeps you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday. Between soaking in your own wood-fired hot tub and being immersed in the beauty of the countryside, you’re promised a peaceful night’s sleep with only the sunrise as your alarm. This is a digital detox in the wild with no electricity, but there are charging points in the main office so you can make sure you still have battery to capture precious memories! If you fancy exploring, you’re just a short drive away from many of the county’s gardens, museums and the coast. There are barbecue huts in each area and new for 2024 is their Grub shack.

The Lazy T

In brief: A luxury, adults only, off-grid getaway, lovingly handcrafted by owners Katy and Skot.
Our highlight: Brook – a handcrafted, dog-friendly off-grid cabin with access via a private footbridge and a firepit/barbecue.
Insider guide: The Lazy T is a sanctuary where guests are invited to switch off, forage for food, and most importantly embrace the peace and quiet, broken only by the hooting of the owls or the crackle of a fire. There are two cabins and two five-metre inflatable dome tents, but this is far from camping. Every site has private facilities and includes a king-size bed, inside and outside fires, hot showers, flushing toilets and kitchenette. Individual footbridges over the babbling brook give you access to your own secluded woodland stay. The perfect sanctuary to switch off, connect with nature and let the sound of the stream carry your troubles away.
