Our six luxury self-catering tree houses are entirely unique, built on stilts and spaced well apart for ultimate privacy and peace. Each has its own spacious decking, hot tub and sauna.

Studford Lodges is a small and exclusive site nestled in woodland between Helmsley and Ampleforth. The location is rural, but the accommodation is sheer luxury. The holiday experience incudes 60” plasma TVs; the very latest in digital sound; exquisite designer furnishings, and your own chauffeur service to take you out to dinner just a few miles away.

We cater for families, couples, and groups all year round. Weekends and short breaks are available.

The Owners

Studford Lodges is an independent holiday site owned and run by the Fawcetts, a long-established family in the area and owners of the much-acclaimed Fairfax Arms in nearby Gilling East.

Brothers Rob and Ed Fawcett had the idea of transforming some of their private woodland into unique self-catering holiday accommodation and approached eco lodge designer Simon Spence to help turn their vision into reality.

Simon was tasked with creating a unique holiday experience that would make the most of the remote woodland setting, whilst offering the very best in luxury living - hence the innovative use of stilts to offer far-reaching forest views and the added indulgence of hot tubs and saunas.

The North York Moors National Park Authority granted planning permission in May 2012 and building began the following year. The lodges have been built and equipped to the highest possible standards and sustainable timber has been used throughout. Alternative energy is provided via a central biomass boiler that fuels underfloor heating and hot water in each lodge.

Thank you Studford for an enjoyable stay. The service was second to none - especially the free taxi service to the Fairfax Arms. Best meal out in a long while.
