Shire Stays: Outside Bree

General

  • Luxurious underground houses in Ryedale, North Yorkshire
  • A 15-minute drive to Flamingo Land Resort, Castle Howard half an hour
  • Private hot tubs; dark-skies site with Howardian Hills views

Ever fancied burrowing away and living underground? Here’s your chance – and you only have to go to North Yorkshire to do it. The underground houses at Shire Stays are tucked into the grassy hillside, with truly spectacular views over the Howardian and Hambleton hills and wonderful sunsets as well.

These warm and toasty luxury pods in Sinnington are fully kitted out with kingsize beds and stylish bathrooms with roomy showers and heated towel rails. Open-plan kitchen and living areas have plenty of space to cook in the oven and while away time gazing at the views.

Outside, each pod has a private seating area that's just the spot for spotting hares and buzzards in the countryside surrounding you. Watch out for those amazing sunsets, and once the sun has gone down on clear nights, you’ll see a glittering display of stars far above – best appreciated from the luxury of your own bubbling hot tub.

Barbecues are supplied on site, and you can pick up foodie treats from the delis in Pickering (10 minutes’ drive). There's a huge choice of pubs and restaurants close by too, in case you can drag yourselves away from those glorious views.

    This pod is in a stunning, secluded spot of the finest North Yorkshire countryside.
    It is very well fitted out and despite the baking weather, remains pleasingly cool.
    The hot tub is a genius touch, perfect place to see the setting sun whilst the birds chatter around.
    The bed has a delightful moon roof above it, this allows for a surprising amount of light into the back of the pod so it is bright, airy and has a cheerfully cosy feel.
    You may gather that we enjoyed our stay, yes, emphatically and will return later in the year.

    We’ve just returned from a weeks stay in Hares View and can’t recommend Shire Stays enough.
    The pod is immaculate and beautifully finished with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
    Not only is it the perfect base for exploring local attractions (we visited the local villages, Dalby Forest and the coast during our stay) but the pods are set in the most stunning location with breathtaking views. The hot tub was the icing on the cake, the perfect way to soak away the aches after a day’s walking or bike riding while taking in the stunning scenery and sunsets.
    The hosts were incredibly helpful during our stay and in the run up when we they were quick to respond to any questions we had.
    If you’re considering booking, don’t hesitate as you won’t be disappointed - we’re already planning our next visit!!

Local attractions

When it's time to leave your cosy little hideaway behind, there's plenty to do in the local area. Get the walking boots on and head for the North York Moors National Park (10 minutes’ drive) for myriad walking and biking trails, or more strenuous activities like rock climbing and abseiling. If you’d like to explore on horseback, stroll up to the stables in Sinnington village (15 minutes’ walk) for rural hacks.

The daredevils among you can make a beeline for Go Ape Dalby for treetop rope courses and zipwires, or fast-paced downhill action at Dalby Forest Cycle Hub (both 20 minutes’ drive). For leisurely days out, tour Castle Howard (half an hour) or steam through moorland scenery on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which runs from Pickering (10 minutes) to Whitby (40 minutes).

Kids behaving? Let them loose on the rides at Flamingo Land Resort (15 minutes) or watch flying displays at the National Centre for Birds of Prey (20 minutes). There's also seaside fun at Scarborough (45 minutes) for sunny days, and plenty of museums in York (50 minutes) for less clement ones.
