Glamping literally reaches new heights in the Peak District National Park

Peak by name and by nature, Peak Glamping Hideaway can lay a strong claim to being UK's highest-altitude glampsite. Situated in Quarnford just outside Buxton, this secluded hamlet adjoins the UK's highest officially recognised village, Flash – 551 metres above sea level and encompassing the Three Shire Heads of Axe Edge Moor, where Cheshire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire converge. The moor is also the source for the myriad rivers that criss-cross this landscape (namely the River Dove, River Manifold, River Dane, River Wye and River Goyt), scything open the ancient stone into spectacular green valleys.

Comprising a pair of family-sized Mongolian yurts along with a romantic shepherds hut for two, the glamping accommodation is sited in a spacious open meadow enclosed by drystone walls. Spin 360 and the views in any direction are incredible, with big skies and lush rolling hills all around. High up in the Peaks, there's a real roof-of-the-world feel, too, making this a retreat in the truest sense.

Although secluded, there's nothing primitive about the accommodation. Each boasts a proper king-sized bed, while the yurts include a trio of comfy futons for extra guests. Luxury touches such as Egyptian cotton, feather down duvets, sheepskin rugs, and that all-important wood-burning stove come as standard. Facilities-wise, a brand new barn conversion houses washing facilities that would put most boutique hotels to shame, with two immaculate showers and even a roll-top bath to soak away in after a day's hiking. While the self-contained shepherds hut includes a kitchenette with Belfast sink and granite worktop, guests can also use the communal kitchen facilities in the same space too, and extra touches such as complimentary towels and a breakfast hamper on arrival shows a thoughtful attention to detail too.

From its peerless position, Peak Glamping Holidays boasts the riches of the region within easy reach. Genteel Buxton offers culture and adventure in equal measure, with quintessential chocolate-box tearooms and outdoor fun in the country park. For historic days out, check out Chatsworth House as seen on the BBC's iconic adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. But given the wondrous walks to be enjoyed throughout the national park, your best suited putting on some boots, plotting a route and setting your jaws stunned.

The Owner Says

Welcome to Peak Glamping Hideaway; our concept is simple; beautiful comfortable glamping with roaring wood burning stoves, king size beds with Egyptian cotton bedding, all located in an area of unspoilt natural beauty where you can awake to a skyline framed by the local rolling hills.

Our Hideaway is set amongst spectalular scenery in a highly regarded location near the Village of Hollinsclough, making it the perfect base for walking and cycling adventures.

Within easy distance are popular escapes such as Buxton, Bakewell, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Alton Towers.

The only noise that disturbs your peace is birdsong or the gentle sound of the river running in the valley below.

Our two yurts are eco-friendly, with no electric at the yurts but fairy lights that give you a shimmering welcome.

The yurts are handcrafted and all have steam bent ash beams and a unique clear round crown top, allowing you to stargaze out from the king size bed.

Your background music will be the crackle of the kindling on the wood burning stove or the sound of wildlife as you drift of to sleep.

Each Yurt provides a king size bed and futons for extra guests. A local breakfast hamper is provided on arrival . Small welcome items when booking a one night stay. BBQs are provided for each accommodation.

Also nestling in the corner of the field is the Sheep Dreams Shepherds Hut; a gorgeous romantic getaway for 2 furnished thoughtfully with a king size bed, Belfast sink with granite worktop and country chic details.

We provide an integral communal living area where you have all the amenities to whip up a hearty breakfast in our rustic style kitchen.

The veranda is certainly not an area to be dismissed, this gorgeous seating area boasts stunning views right across the Dove Valley in Derbyshire.

For exclusive use of the site we can accommodate up to 12 guests, this including Sheep Dreams Shepherds Hut, a romantic getaway for a couple.

Would you like to make magical memories that last a lifetime?

We hope to welcome you soon.

Getting There

Peak Glamping Hideaway is off the A53 Leek to Buxton road. If travelling via Leek, take the A53 for approximately 8 miles until you see a pub on your right-hand side called The Knights Table. If travelling via Buxton take the A53 for 4 miles until you see The Knights Table on your left.

Once you see the pub, you need to take the road beside it. Proceed down there for about half a mile, taking the third turning on your left. You will go down a hill for about quarter of a mile, until you see a fork in the road – bear left from on this road. You will see the glampsite and house just down that road.

A car is needed for your stay here due to our rural location. There is a train station in Buxton, approximately four miles away.
