The Lazy T is the perfect sanctuary to switch off, find some solitude, read that book you’ve been wanting to open for awhile, forage for food, immerse yourself in the ancient art of cooking over fire, enjoy evenings of peace and quiet where all you can hear is the hooting of the owls, the crackle of the fire and the stream trickling on by.

The Lazy T focuses on bringing us back to simple pleasures that, in the right place and company, become so deeply felt.

The space
Our on grid option. It has wifi, heating and is dog friendly. Located next door to the hosts it is slightly less secluded than the others but the access is more direct with parking adjacent and once you walk out of the french doors at the back, into your private garden and listen to the stream trickle by you’ll feel like you’re the only ones on earth.

It has a double bedroom with an ensuite shower room and access to the back garden, separate kitchen/dining/living area. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas hob/oven and under counter fridge.

Where you’ll be

Old Byland, England, United Kingdom

Far out of the city, down the winding roads of the North Yorks Moors National Park, into a hidden valley and amongst the trees sits The Lazy T. Surround your self in nothing but nature and let the babbling brook carry your cares away.

Stay local and soak up beautiful walks with personalised maps from the door, to Rievaulx Abbey or The Owl at Hawnby. There's also bike hire from Sutton bank and the chocolate box town of Helmsley is 5 miles away. Guided foraging walks are available from the host

I live next door to the listing with my husband, 4 year old daughter and very friendly Lurcher. I grew up here on the farm before moving away for 15 years. We moved back 5 years ago and are working towards a more sustainable life. We grow our own veg, I love to forage for edible weeds around our large garden and the local area. We are supplied with meat from the farm that my parents run. We have two more off-grid holiday rentals that are available from Canopy and Stars under the name The Lazy T.

During your stay

We, Skot and Katy, live on site with our 4 year old daughter, Ava and very friendly lurcher, Django.

We left London 5 years ago to create a more sustainable life connected with nature. We have put our heart, soul, time and savings into creating this wild getaway. Each site feels so personal to us and we have gradually built it over time. We hope you love it as much as we do.

We are here if you need anything but won't bother you if you'd rather enjoy the seclusion alone.
