The woodland of North Star Club is a rugged environment, treasured by its new guardians and left as untouched as possible. Stone paths meander their way through the delicately lit forest, private verandas bathe in gentle candlelight, and peacocks and hares have been known to greet guests on their porches over morning coffee.
However, it is the Star Suite that really steals the show. Complete with all the luxury and artisan hints of its fellow lodgings, The Star Suite also comes complete with its very own infra-red sauna and decadent freestanding copper bath with private views out onto the stunning woodland surroundings. Capturing that little piece of luxury and romance embodied by a bath perfectly designed for two, the Copper Bateau bath gleams against the sultry dark slate of the interior, blissful to bathe in and enchantingly romantic.
Exclusive and lavish yet with a rustic nostalgia of simpler times, The North Star Club is the perfect destination for those in search of the antidote to the demands of daily life. So why not slow down, unwind, take a breath and rediscover a sense of time in an idyll amongst the magic of a woodland wonderland.
