The Owner Says

Peak Pods are beautifully crafted from environmentally friendly sourced larch wood, with a pine interior. They are insulated with mineral wool so they stay cosy in winter and cool in summer. Peak Pods have an integral shower room with heated shower, washbasin and toilet. There is also a heated towel rail and radiator in the pod, so there is no chance of getting cold & damp, unlike a tent.

The pods have a super comfy fixed double bed and a large sofa bed. They have a small but well equipped kitchen area with induction hob, fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is also a table with chairs to sit round for meals or to play games together. Outside, each pod has its own natural stone paved patio with picnic bench for eating in the great outdoors.

Activities

Footpaths lead directly from the site into the surrounding Peak District National Park and it is less than half a mile to both the beautiful Lathkill Dale and Bradford Dale. There are also excellent family-friendly, traffic-free cycle trails: the Monsal trail, Tissington trail and High Peak trails a short distance away. Nearby attractions include Chatsworth House (01246 565300; 15 mins by car) – a grand property with expansive gardens (save the whole day for exploring the place, it can't really be done justice in just a couple of hours) and Haddon Hall (01629 812855; 5 mins), a Tudor mansion with it's own gardens vying for your attention. The Heights of Abraham (01629 582365; 20 mins) near Matlock is also worth a visit. The hilltop park is reached via cable car, with cave tours, walking trails, fossil exhibitions and a small café.

Food & Drink

 Marshmallows and skewers are available to buy on site. There's a trio of decent pubs in nearby Youlgreave (1 mile away) which all serve food: The George (01629 636292), The Bulls Head (01629 636307) and The Farmyard Inn (01629 636221).
