Tucked away in private woodland on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, this luxurious designer tree-house will blow you away!! The lodge is built on stilts to make the most of the tree-lined views, and offers space, seclusion and quality throughout. You have your own private inbuilt sauna; a hot tub on the outside decking; a 60" SMART TV, and a PlayStation 4 with DVD and Blu-ray. Although set in quiet grounds, you are only four miles from the picturesque market town of Helmsley with its many delightful shops and places to eat, and are very close to the stunning North York Moors, ideal for walking, mountain biking and road cycling. The lodge is open all year round and benefits from a large wood-burner (starter logs provided) as well as underfloor heating so is warm and cosy whatever the weather.
Studford Lodge is on a small independent holiday site owned and run by the Fawcetts, a long-established family in the area. Brothers Rob and Ed Fawcett had the idea of transforming some of their own woodland into unique self-catering holiday accommodation that combined green technologies with designer living. They approached eco-designer Simon Spence to help turn their vision into reality. The lodge is fuelled by an eco-friendly biomass boiler and is built entirely from timber, much of it locally-grown sustainable larch.
