Here is a place where glamping reaches new heights....Nestled within 500 acres of native English woodland in the peaceful Yorkshire Wolds, the North Star Club is a ruggedly cosy and indulgent retreat where you can really escape the pressures of 21st century living. This is a British forest holiday with a difference.
Forget crowds, overused facilities and commercial woodland – the North Star Club provides something a bit special. The setting is a huge bio-diverse forest, the accommodation is a cluster of private suites furnished in a rustic chic style, and the surrounding countryside is not only picturesque but is also abundant in attractions and activities. If you’re looking for a unique alternative to a country house hotel then you won’t find anywhere more magical than this.
Yorkshire is a magnificent region boasting sublime countryside, vibrant cities and a rich culture and heritage. There are two national parks to explore as well as a beautiful coastline, and (aside from London) there are more Michelin-starred restaurants here than anywhere else in the UK. The local village, Sancton, is home to an award-winning pub, there are several other excellent eateries within the local area (the owners have top recommendations) and there are lots of other activities available nearby, from polo and gliding to golf, water sports and clay pigeon shooting. Sledmere House and Burton Agnes Hall are both well worth a visit, the wild coastline at Flamorough Head is just 30 minutes away, and York and Beverley are both known for their shopping and for their races. What more could you possibly need for an invigorating getaway?
From the South, drive along the M62 heading east (which turns into the A63), come off at Junction 38 and keep left towards North Cave just a mile away. Take the first left which is variously marked for North Cliffe, South Cliffe, North Cave Wetlands Nature reserve, and Market Weighton. Continue north along this road for about 4.5 miles and take the right (the only right after you’ve left North Cave) to Sancton. Go down this single road for about a mile and you will see the North Star Club on your right leading into woods. If you end up in Sancton you’ve gone too far as the entrance is about 400 metres before the village. From the North, come along the Hull road A1079 and on the Market Weighton bypass, there will be a sign to North Cliffe, South Cliffe and polo clubs.

There are eight woodland suites to choose from, all inspired by the people and places of this fascinating county. Each has a large bedroom with a king-size bed and wood burner, a living room with a sofa bed, a second bedroom with bunk beds and a spa-style bathroom, so they are cosy enough for a romantic twosome as well as big enough for a family of six. Each suite is also equipped with a small fridge, a hair dryer and a gas fired BBQ. The Hideaway Suites are a little bit extra special with their four poster beds, copper baths and iPod docks, and the Star Suite even has a private infra-red sauna.
Each suite has a large covered veranda complete with dining furniture and when you want to venture out you can head to The Woodshed, a communal relaxation space complete with open fire and homemade cake.
There are lots of fantastic places to eat nearby but if you want to stay in you can have a BBQ pack or food hampers delivered to your suite. You can also have pampering treatments in the comfort of your own bathroom.
