The Private Hill was this week declared officially open by MP Kevin Hollinrake at the venue’s inaugural event, being held in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society, Living Well With Dementia Berwick (Royal Voluntary Service) and Berwick & District Friends of Dementia

The event, which raised over £15,000 to be split between the three charities, was attended by over 200 people who enjoyed entertainment and a three course meal provided at The Private Hill, North Yorkshire’s newest and most luxurious glamping destination and event venue.

MP Kevin Hollinrake declared The Private Hill officially open, and unveiled a solid wood carved sign, commemorating the event. He said:

“Ventures like The Private Hill are what make North Yorkshire great.

“It is innovative, luxurious and will attract a new raft of visitors to our region to enjoy its facilities. It is also perfect for weddings and large events with a difference. I congratulate the owner, Roddy Hamilton and am delighted to have supported two such good causes!”

The Private Hill offers luxury boutique glamping in brand new innovative Geodesic Domes and it is the first of its kind in the North.

Each dome comes complete with its own luxurious interior comprising of super king-sized bed (or twins) complete with luxury bedding, private ensuite shower room with flushing toilet, mains electricity, kitchenette complete with Nespresso coffee maker and Miele microwave, stocked minibar, Sonos music system and lots of other high end touches.

Private events and weddings are hosted in stunning marquees on site, chosen personally for each event, with breath taking views of over 60 miles, top notch catering and lots of personal touches guaranteed.

Organiser of The Forget Me Not Ball, Amelia Clark, said:

“”We chose The Private Hill for our annual fundraising ball as we were blown away by the location and the stunning views. Being able to put our own touch on the marquee and moving away from a more traditional event in a hotel or conference facility elevated the event, giving it an added attraction to the guests. We also knew we were guaranteed quality, which is important when we are hosting guests who are kindly supporting a charity.”

Jane’s dome at The Private Hill is now also open – this is a larger dome that stands as the social hub at The Private Hill. Jane’s Dome also welcomes locals, walkers, cyclists and those passing for coffee and cake or a light meal, opening up farm life to be enjoyed by a wider audience.
