The perfect rural retreat
The domes themselves offer something completely out of the ordinary, but combined with the idyllic setting and views stretching out for miles across the Yorkshire Wolds it really is something unique. With just four domes all set apart from each other it also provides fantastic peace and privacy to really enjoy the setting. The domes are spacious, well finished and very comfortable. It feels like a home from home. The owners, Jane and Roddy, were very welcoming and take an interest in all the guests. We also greatly enjoyed the farm tour, getting up close to the animals (which it seems are effectively all pets!) and seeing all that they are doing to encourage biodiversity. We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and thought it was perfectly befitting of such an occasion and will definitely find a reason to stay there again.
