Nestled in the North Yorkshire Countryside lies New York Public Library, a luxury holiday home with a hot tub and a unique name to match. The intriguing design of this luxury lodge includes contemporary interiors and a fantastic outdoor space.

Carefully selected artwork is abundant throughout, and the outdoor Patagonian grilling station, pizza oven, table football table, tree house for the kids to explore, and hot tub offer plenty to keep you busy. There are also plenty of walks around the fields on your doorstep – you couldn't ask for much more. This design is open-plan so you can easily include the whole family, and the floor-to-ceiling windows mean that you can relax and bask in the light whilst keeping tabs on the kids as they venture through the grounds.

Whether looking for an adventure or a true refuge, you will revel in this luxury lodge...

New York Public Library offers a chance to relax in a peaceful yet inspirational environment, while enjoying the height of style. The layout of this contemporary holiday home is perfect for a group looking for Yorkshire holiday accommodation with a difference...

Designed and built by acclaimed writer, art collector, and curator, Greville Worthington, this lodge is close to the historic market town of Richmond. Greville took inspiration for New York Public Library from a Japanese wood-burning craft that preserves and enhances the beauty of wood over time. It was designed as a calming Yorkshire retreat for guests of all ages. The dark wood exterior provides guests with a truly unique setting. It is certainly unlike any other luxury holiday home!

It’s important to note that this property is not in New York, nor is it a library or even open to the public! The owner, a gentleman of great creative thought, lived in a nearby deconsecrated church for 20 years before it became the stunning Aquarius Rising, part of which is based on the old public library in York. And that's how the 'New York public library' found its name.

Just like its name, this striking holiday home is totally unexpected. The panoramic glass sliding doors take you straight into the heart of the property. A spacious and impressive living and dining area where guests can indulge with friends and family, or relax taking in the views.

Carefully selected interiors and art pieces create an inspiring and eclectic living area. Well-considered artwork adorns the walls throughout. This holiday home with a games table is perfect fun for the kids (and big kids). A luxury lodge style home, its distinctive features set the scene for a memorable stay for years to come.

There are three bedrooms in the main house, plus a stylish fourth bedroom in the separate annex - ideal for a couple looking for some privacy. The master bedroom has a fixed king-sized bed, fantastic feature bath, and a separate toilet. The first floor balcony wraps around the bedroom and the view from the bath is glorious out over the fields.

The second bedroom has a fixed king-sized bed with a lovely red headboard, a door leads out onto the other end of the first-floor balcony. The third bedroom is a cosy twin room, with two single beds. There is also a house bathroom these rooms share with a large walk-in shower.

The separate annex provides a large bedroom with a private outdoor seating area. The super king-size bed can be split into a twin bed setup. The en-suite bathroom is a wet room with a shower, modern and well suited to guests with reduced mobility. This spacious room has plenty of space for a cot or z-bed, and outside its own private seating area.

From all aspects of the lodge, guests can view the surrounding and ever-changing private park and woodlands. The outdoor spaces provide entertainment or quiet relaxation, depending on what you're looking for.

Enjoy the private jacuzzi-style garden hot tub. We recommend an outdoor cooking experience at the Patagonia Grill Station or the wood-fired pizza oven. Light up the fire pit while the children explore the tree house.

In the Garden is a unique art installation created by architect and designer Amanda Levete. Sour Beck runs through the field beyond the grounds, where there are plenty of great picnic sites to be found. It’s a short walk to the bluebell woodland gardens which features a superb collection of rare trees and shrubs including bamboo, magnolias, and witch hazels.

There is Wi-Fi throughout this luxury lodge and ample parking for up to four cars. The modern kitchen has a full inventory, including a large fridge and cooker and a separate wine cooler. A washing machine and tumble dryer are available. Outside is plenty of outdoor seating alongside the BBQ (charcoal included) and pizza oven.

All our holiday homes include high-quality bed linen, towels, bathrobes, and toiletries. There is a starter pack for the kitchen, fire, and washroom, and of course, a locally sourced welcome hamper on arrival.

The main door into New York Public Library is at the rear of the house. It is accessed from the raised decking surrounding the property. There are 2 steps up from the gravel car park which has plenty of space for 4 cars. The steps onto the deck are more challenging for guests with reduced mobility. However, one up it is all on one level outside and the separate annex has step-free access. The outdoor pizza oven and al fresco dining area are on the same level of decking as the house, with one step down to the jacuzzi-style hot tub.

There is a step down between the kitchen and the living and dining areas. The large floor-to-ceiling windows open almost the full width of the front of the house, with a small lip (rather than a step) to the outside.

Upstairs, the house bathroom has a large walk-in shower. The master bedroom has a fantastic roll-top bath which sits at the end of the bed, offering uninterrupted views of the Yorkshire countryside. The two larger bedrooms have access to the large outdoor balcony. The twin bedroom can only be set as twin beds.

The separate annex sits on one level, giving a ground floor bedroom and en-suite wet room with a shower, making it well suited to guests with reduced mobility. The annex is a spacious room, well-suited to holidays with a baby or couples wanting a bit of space to themselves.

In The Area

New York Public Library is fantastic because it feels wonderfully secluded, yet there are shops less than a mile away. Stock up for the outdoor Patagonian grilling station by heading to Premier Meats in Colburn for a wide choice and a small greengrocer.

The property is a couple of miles from the market town of Richmond, North Yorkshire, commonly known as ‘The Gateway to The Dales’. With its 11th Century castle, fine historic buildings, cobbled market place, and hidden corners, it is a treasure trove for visitors. We recommend Rustique, a popular French restaurant, and Barretts for the food. Millgate House Gardens overlooks the River Swale and is described as “one of the most surprising gardens in the North of England”.
