The Parlour is a brand-new addition at Greenacres. It's a beautiful, completely self-contained luxury Shepherd's Hut, built by Blackdown Shepherd's Huts. It comes with a fully-fitted kitchen, en-suite shower and toilet, and a full-sized double bed and dining area. There's a radio, but there's no TV or Wi-Fi. You won't need it, with the countryside around you to explore. It is your chance to embrace life in the slow lane, get off grid and leave your hectic life behind for a few days. Watch the sun setting or the cows go up for evening milking.  Cook dinner on your Indian kadai firebowl and keep warm sitting around it as the evening cools. There's even a wood-fired pizza oven in a sheltered courtyard, if you fancy having a go! Have fun on our antique swing, which hangs from the branch of an old ash tree nearby.

 Listen to the dawn chorus in the morning while you wake up after a good night's sleep, then enjoy your coffee and a proper Staffordshire breakfast on your terrace. ​Surrounding the Parlour is an orchard of fruit trees, and your front doors open to a spectacular view of open fields, trees and The Weaver Hills in the distance.

  • Double bed

  • Ensuite with shower

  • Fully-fitted kitchen with fridge and induction hob

  • Outdoor patio area with kadai barbeque and seating

About The Parlour at Greenacres

A shepherd's hut stay just south of the Peak District, with a riverside village on the doorstep and friendly, attentive hosts.
Welcome to Greenacres! We're Tessa and David, and we live in our family's farmhouse set in the middle of 11 acres of organic pasture on the edge of the small country village of Denstone, Staffordshire. The land has been farmed for centuries, and Tessa's family has been here since the middle of the 19th century. We are 10 minutes from Alton Towers, close to Ashbourne and the Peak District, and a short walk from the centre of the village. It's ideal for walkers, cyclists, nature-lovers, and a lovely place to relax. The Parlour is set in the open garden, next to a plum tree and overlooks the field leading down to a small brook.

Glamping Site Facilities

The Parlour sleeps 2 in a full size double bed and features a fitted kitchen, en-suite shower (towels provided) and toilet, a dining area and a wood-burner. The kitchen has induction hobs, a fridge, sink, kettle, toaster, all the expected utensils, cutlery, crockery and tea and coffee making items. Outdoor patio area with kadai barbecue and seating. There's a radio and a hair drier, but there's no TV or WiFi. There's free off-road parking  as well as all the logs you need for your log burning stove and kadai. Surrounding the Parlour is an orchard of fruit trees, and your front doors open to a spectacular view of open fields, trees and The Weaver Hills in the distance. There's an antique swing you can enjoy it all from, hanging in the branch of an old ash tree close by.
