Dame Edith Sitwell, a Yorkshire poet, is the namesake for this suite. Her eccentric and creative personality is reflected in the book wallpaper and antique writing desk. French doors fling open to a sheltered veranda with sitting area, and the bathroom features a huge rainfall shower.
A wartime pilot who was the first female ground engineer, Amy Johnson was known for her bravery and glamour. A stunning portrait of her hangs above a silver dressing table where black and white photographs are placed. The centrepiece of the suite is the bed with four tree trunk posts and imitation stag’s head on the wall above. A tan, Chesterfield sofa sits by the French doors looking out to the veranda. The huge bathroom boasts an oversized, freestanding bath.
At the centre of Yorkshire’s wool trade, Abraham Moon has been a supplier of tweed fabrics for 175 years, which can be seen in the headboard and curtains. Curious pieces of handcrafted wooden furniture are scattered throughout, complementing the panelled walls. A large freestanding bath takes pride of place in the bathroom next to French doors so you can look out onto the woodland scenery as you bathe.
Playing a significant role in the War of the Roses, and winning the heart of King Edward IV, Elizabeth Woodville was known as the White Queen. Four slender tree trunks, urban lighting, candles and imitation stag’s head embrace the large wooden bed draped in an ever-so-soft faux fur throw. The wow-factor bathroom is inspired by its surroundings and blends various natural materials to create a stylish backdrop for the freestanding bath.
Paying homage to The North Star Club’s favourite Victorian painter, The Atkinson Hideaway Suite is decorated bears a moody colour scheme, decorated with varied shades of grey. This private, Hideaway Suite also boasts a rustic shower room, large covered veranda, cosy wood-burner and decorated with exquisite furnishing materials such as recycled wood and distressed leather.
A delicate infusion of recycled timber wood and silver birch detailing creates this rustic themed Hideaway Suite, crafted with natural materials and perfected with symbols of Yorkshire. Similar to The Atkinson Suite, White Rose provides a large covered veranda, cosy log-burner and rustic shower room.
A subtle tribute towards a nautical theme and the coastal town of Whitby; this luxurious Hideaway Suite inspires a seaside town theme through recycled driftwood and rope detailing into the interiors. Alike the other Hideaway Suite’s, Whitby advertises a large covered veranda, cosy log-burner and rustic shower room.
The owners have gone all out to showcase their incredible design skills in this praiseworthy suite. Four poster bed, large copper bath, infra-red sauna and iPod clock come together beautifully for the ultimate luxury suite.
All in all a perfect social weekend and we can’t wait to go back.
Rachel Waldron – November 2017
We had the most wonderful stay at North Star Club. It is set in the most beautiful, remote area and the whole weekend felt like we were going back to basics and leaving the rat race behind us but at the same time we had every luxury right there. From luxurious accommodation with a four poster bed and copper bath, down to the stunning ‘woodshed’ with hot chocolate and marshmallows on offer for roasting on the campfire. It was perfect and we will definitely be going back very soon. I feel like we have found a hidden gem.
