The Owner Says

'Everything starts with a sunrise but it's what we do before it sets that matters' – K. McGraw

Make everyday count in our Sunrise Yurt. Wake up in a king size bed under the warmth of a feather down duvet, with birdsong and the crackle of the wood-burner the background music to your relaxation.

Sunrise Yurt provides a king-size bed and two double futons for extra guests. It's an eco-friendly haven with no electric but solar powered fairy lights that give you a shimmering welcome.

Our yurts are handcrafted and have steam bent ash beams and a unique large clear round crown top, allowing you to stargaze out from the king size bed. A clear window also allows you to gaze down the valley from inside, or sit out your yurt enjoying barbecues and toasting marshmallows around the fire.

They have been carefully designed to ensure you have everything you need for your escape from Egyptian cotton bedding, sheepskin rugs, a breakfast hamper on arrival, logs for the woo-burner, to board games for some old fashion fun! Rest up ready for more adventure in the rugged hills of Derbyshire!

All guests share 2 luxury shower rooms and one bathroom with gorgeous roll-top bath (basin and toilet in each room). Yurts have use of the nearby communal kitchen with fridge-freezer.

What to bring:
  • We want your stay to be as relaxing and hassle-free as possible so we provide little extras to make your stay an enjoyable one. We supply bed linen, towels, basic toiletries, logs and kindling for the stove, and the kitchen is well equipped with a fridge freezer, oven, microwave, kettle and utensils.

Activities

The site lies in the heart of Derbyshire and the Peak District National Park so there are heaps of stunning walks to enjoy such as the Manifold Trail, Monsail Trail and Tissington Trail. Picturesque Hollinsclough village is a short stroll away, while Macclesfield Forest (20 mins drive) offers a wealth of outdoor activities and wildlife to spot, including the heronry at Trentabank Reservoir. Further afield, hop in the car or follow the route of the River Dove to Ilam Park and the famous Dovedale Stepping Stones before scaling Thorpe Grove for a stunning panorama of the Dovedale Valley. Horseriding and pony trekking can be arranged from nearby Northfield Farm (01298 22543). For a fun family day out, Alton Towers, Go Ape (0845 094 9215 and Poole’s Caverns and Buxton Country Park (01298 26978) are all within easy reach. History buffs should head to the much-filmed Chatsworth House (01246 565300), Haddon Hall (01629 812 855), while culture vultures will love Buxton Opera House & Pavilion Arts Centre (01298 72190).

Food & Drink

All guests receive a welcome breakfast hamper on arrival. There are also plenty of pubs and eateries in the area. Flash Bar Stores Cafe  (01298 22763) does a decent breakfast, pies and traditional Derbyshire oatcakes – dine al fresco for spectacular views from Britain’s highest village. The 16th-century Staffordshire Knot (01298 84329) boasts a welcoming log fire and an inventive menu of locally-sourced dishes. For something a little different, The Knights Table (01298 23695) at The Travellers Rest in Quarnford is a medieval-themed restaurant with a meat-heavy menu that should satisfy all carnivores.

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.
