0 (0 reviews)

Upper Hurst Farm is a family-run caravan, camping and glamping site with incredible views of the surrounding Peak District.

Upper Hurst Farm has 25 fully-serviced hardstanding and grass mixed pitches, 15 electric grass tent pitches, a luxurious glamping yurt with wood-fired hot tub, a bookable touring caravan on a private garden pitch, a stunning holiday cottage with wood-fired hot tub and a brand new holiday apartment.

All of the pitches are within 120 metres of our immaculate toilet and shower facilities. Use of the toilets, showers and kitchen area is free of charge. There is a washing machine and a tumble dryer available, these are chargeable.

Our closest pub is just a 10-minute walk away through green fields and we are a short, 15-minute walk away from the start of the Manifold Valley Cycle Trail. Along the trail you will find two cafes, an old Mill and the popular Thor's Cave. A slightly longer walk through the Derbyshire Dales (2.6 miles, 45 minutes) will take you to the beautiful village of Hartington. Hartington has to be one of the most stunning villages in the Peak District. It features two pubs, five shops, two cafes and a post office. Hartington is a must-see when staying here.

Despite being rural, we are in the heart of four major market towns: Bakewell, Buxton, Ashbourne and Leek. Each of these have their own appeal and activities. We are also not far from Matlock & Matlock Bath where there are further attractions.

So, there is plenty to do once you get here. The walking from the site is extensive and you can join many footpaths from within 200m of the site entrance. For keen hikers or not, there is plenty to do once you get here!

Gaia Lodge: Holiday Cottage with Hot Tub

Cosy up next to the log burner or pamper yourself in the extra-large wood-fired hot-tub under the stars. This fabulous, cosy barn conversion is compact, bijou and perfect as a romantic retreat for two. Gaia Lodge, a former piggery, nestles in an elevated position on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border which falls within the southern area of the Peak District National Park. Gaia Lodge boasts panoramic views of the undulating countryside, dotted with natural hedgerows and dry stone walls; characteristic of the Derbyshire Dales. It can be found 165 yards away from the family run caravan and camping site of Upper Hurst Farm, which has been awarded the coveted Environmental Quality Mark award. The warm, gritstone cottage has been renovated with much love, with exposed Douglas fir King-post trusses, stone flag flooring and a log-burner for cosy nights in. Logs are provided free of charge, as is WiFi.

The cottage is lavishly furnished with hand-made linen curtains and blinds, goose-feather & down pillows and duvet. We also have Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels, fluffy dressing gowns and handmade chocolates on arrival (2021 bookings) or a locally sourced breakfast hamper (2022 bookings). It is enhanced further by fully controllable underfloor heating for toasty toes! The kitchen has a granite worktop with quality fixtures and fittings and modern appliances, including a dishwasher.

There is a stone-flagged seating area with a westerly aspect overlooking Ecton Hill which includes a washing line. There is a small, gated, and walled garden with a north-west aspect where you can enjoy the last drop of evening sun. This garden leads to a further completely private, decked patio area (south-west facing and becoming a little suntrap) with a 1700L red cedar, wood-fired hot-tub, to provide a truly special and memorable stay. The hot tub is heated for your arrival and included in the price for shorter stays (up to 4 nights), for longer stays it will need to be emptied, cleaned, refilled, and reheated halfway through your stay which is included in the price for 2022 bookings but will incur an additional charge of £100 for 2021 bookings.

Gaia's Hideaway: Glamping Yurt with Hot Tub

Gaia’s Hideaway is an authentic Mongolian yurt with 1700-L wood-fired hot tub. It is approached from a path at the South-East corner of Upper Hurst Farm Caravan and Camping site, leading down to a secluded corner surrounded by trees, natural hedgerows, and open views to the Peak District hills.

It is a truly magical hideaway. When you open the door in the morning you will be greeted by the sunrise and prolific birdsong. Peace and tranquillity are guaranteed. The South-East aspect means that you will have shade in some places and sunshine all day long on the decking area, so sun-bathing is on the menu.

The yurt is lavishly furnished with an enormous circular bed with a hand-made bamboo headboard and softly draped canopy. Goose-feather & down pillows and superking duvet, Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels, fluffy dressing gowns, a memory foam mattress, and welcome chocolates on arrival (2021 bookings) or a locally sourced food hamper (2022 bookings) are included in the Gaia’s Hideaway experience.

The yurt has a self-contained mini kitchen with refrigerator, washing up and cooking facilities as well as dining and lounge areas that are arranged around a Persian rug and central log burner. On the generous decking area there is a Cadac barbecue ready for cooking on.

For the ultimate experience there is an extra-large red-cedar, wood-fired hot-tub for you to enjoy a truly luxurious and peaceful stay amidst the trees, natural hedges, and wildlife. The hot tub is heated for your arrival and included in the price for shorter stays (up to 4 nights), for longer stays it will need to be emptied, cleaned, refilled, and reheated halfway through your stay which is included in the price for 2022 bookings but will incur an additional charge of £100 for 2021 bookings.

To add to the outdoors adventure, there is an adjacent, private compost toilet. Underfloor-heated flushing toilets and showers are about 150 yards away - back up your little path to the main caravan site.

Escape to this relaxing hideaway and experience the Peak District at its finest.

The Loft

Cosy up in luxury after a long day exploring the Peak District. The Loft at Upper Hurst Farm nestles in an elevated position on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border which falls within the southern area of the Peak District National Park. The Loft boasts panoramic views of the undulating countryside, dotted with natural hedgerows and dry-stone walls; characteristic of the Derbyshire Dales. It can be found on the the family run caravan and camping site of Upper Hurst Farm, which has been awarded the coveted Environmental Quality Mark award.

The loft is lavishly furnished with hand-made linen blinds, goose-feather & down pillows and duvet. Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels are included. It is enhanced further by fully controllable underfloor heating for toasty toes! The kitchen has a granite worktop with quality fixtures and fittings and modern appliances, including a dishwasher, freezer and washer/dryer.

You will find the local pub just a 10-minute walk away. The Manifold Inn serves homemade pub-grub and has a friendly atmosphere with roaring fires in the colder months and it is dog-friendly. The village of Hartington is a 45-minute walk through Beresford Dale and features a village store which serves the best coffee, two pubs and a cheese shop (which it is famous for!). There is a plethora of walks directly from the Loft which makes it great for those who love walking and exploring. For those who don’t, there are a large number of attractions nearby including stately homes, historic towns and villages, theme parks and lots of other things to see and do.

"What a stunning space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Loft and we will be back! Incredible views, warm and cosy, well thought out, top-quality, comfortable and has everything you could possibly need! We can’t recommend it enough and it is in the perfect location for exploring the white peak area of the Peak District. Hulme End and Hartington are gorgeous! We will be back!”
