Hart Lake Escapes is a selection of five individually themed, couples only, beautifully appointed shepherd huts, each nestled in woodland around a small private lake on the outskirts of the Historic City of York. Family run and set within the owner’s home grounds, an old hunting lodge dating back to the Duke of Sutherland, you can be assured of a warm welcome on arrival and a personal touch throughout your stay. The huts are fitted out to a high standard each having their own private kitchen and ensuite facilities, log burner, barbecue, wood fired hot tub and outside seating area situated overlooking the lake.fi

“Luxury in the woods!”

Your stay will include the following:

If you can drag yourself away from the beautiful surroundings, Hart Lake Escapes is ideally located to visit many places in North Yorkshire, including York, which is only a 15-minute bus journey away (bus stops outside the property and runs twice an hour) with all its history, tourist attractions, shopping and nightlife. In the opposite direction, the Howardian Hills are a 13-minute drive away, encompassing the famously renowned Castle Howard, with its acres of garden and woodland, stately home, coffee shop, garden centre and farm shop. Another couple of minutes further along, brings you to the pretty market town of Malton, famous for its weekend markets and food festivals.
