Deep in the depths of the Yorkshire countryside is a rather wonderful retreat known as North Star Club. Described as a form of glamping, Chris and I decided it was definitely worth a visit and set off north to God's own country.
Conveniently located between Beverly and York, this woodland get away is the perfect place to relax and unwind from the demands of a busy lifestyle.
The woodland experience consists of various suites with different names and themes. We went for the "Moon" suite and were delightfully greeted by Hygge, rustic interior to die for!
The cabin works similarly to that of a hotel room, with staff taking away used cups and plates each day.
The interior was practical as well as aesthetically gorgeous, with touches such as carved wooden hooks to hang coats and tea towels and a cosy log burner for warmth and a rustic effect.
The overall feel of the cabin was really welcoming and intimate, making both Chris and I ready to snuggle amongst the trees and the stars.
There was little to no phone signal in the cabin and no entertainment such as a TV which meant Chris and I had to participate in the art of conversation! Joking aside, it was actually pretty lovely plus teamed with listening to the crackling of the fire in candle light, it was super relaxing and the perfect way to unwind.
Waking up in the woods was a pretty cool experience with the birds singing. The blackout curtains throughout the cabin could let you happily snooze in but being an early bird I greeted the spring sunshine and was soon outside enjoying it with none other than a proper Yorkshire brew!
Being a short drive from York, Chris and I decided to explore the city during our trip which you can see more of in my vlog but whilst at the camp, we took pleasure in reading, walking through the woods and generally enjoying our surroundings.
I absolutely adored staying at the North Star Club hidden retreat and will definitely be returning! I'd like to come back in the winter to fully appreciate the snuggle factor but at least during this stay we got to utilise the outdoor cooking and eating area. My only regret is that the club is not dog friendly, due to pheasants being bred and shoots taking place so if I had one wish it would be that Harry could have come. Perhaps if they introduced a rule of dogs strictly on a lead at all times this could be introduced as I'm sure many a canine companion would love this place!
You may notice theres been a distinct lack of food mentioned on this break but fear not- there is a separate post coming on a rather awesome place just a walk away from the club so be sure to check that out if you plan on staying here!
So that was my first glamping experience! Would I recommend it? Hell yes. Would I return? Absolutely!
