Glamping Derbyshire: 35 Amazing Places You Need to Stay [2024]


Derbyshire is easily one of my favourite counties in the UK.

I mean, they’ve got the Peak District – what more could they possibly need?

It’s safe to say that if you book a glamping holiday in Derbyshire, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views, great walks, and some of the best pub grub in the country.

But that’s not the only reason to book a stay here – there’s also an amazing selection of glamping sites to pick from too.

From tipis and shepherds huts to safari tents and yurts, here are 35 amazing glamping holidays in Derbyshire.

1. Mulino Pods


Price per night: From £72.50 for 2 people or £85 for 4 people

Location: Ashbourne

Similar to my last recommendation, Mulino Pods is one of the best places to go glamping in Derbyshire if you want to wake up to amazing views.

The views over the valley towards Carsington Water really do speak for themselves.

But if you want to imagine just how good they could be, just picture yourself sitting down at the picnic table dining alfresco at sunset.

Persuaded to book a stay now?

I thought you would be.

What guests say: “You have complete privacy, but better than that the views are fantastic from the hill-top vantage point and the pods are cosy whatever the outside temperature. Cooking or barbecuing was easy and the bathrooms are luxurious.”

2. Scaldersitch Farm Tipis


Price per night: From £165 for 2 people

Location: Sheen, nr Hartington

Scaldersitch Farm Tipis is easily one of my favourite places to go glamping in Derbyshire.

I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a horsebox, after all?

There are two horse boxes to choose from, Martin Green and Jennings, both of which are set on the picturesque banks of the Trent.

They are both completely off-grid so if you want to switch off from modern life (including your phone!) this might be the place to do it.

What guests say: “A stunning quality and beautifully appointed horse box conversion in a gorgeous riverside location. Complimentary milk, eggs, bread, butter, jams, bottled water and yummy homemade brownies. I had a wonderful stay, cosy nights in beside the log burner.”

The pod comprises a double bed, sofa bed, kitchen, TV, and en-suite.

And outside (alongside your hot tub), you’ve also got a patio and covered seating area so you can dine alfresco even if the heavens open up!

What guests say: “There were three of us but inside the cabin, there was four of everything, ideal for a family. The towels and bedding were provided, microwave, wines glasses, normal glasses, cutlery and plates, frying pan and other pans, tin opener etc. The hot tub had the most gorgeous view.”

Sat at the top of its own private field, Peak Glamping Hideaway Shepherds Hut is ridiculously picturesque – and the best part is that it looks the part inside too!

Cosy and romantic, this hut for two comprises a luxurious king-size bed, kitchen, wood burner, and Wi-Fi.

However, if a shepherds hut doesn’t take your fancy, the glamping site is also home to two yurts, as well as a holiday cottage, so you’ve got plenty of places to pick from.

Firstly, how do an outdoor shower and wood-fired hot tub sound?

Paired with those amazing views and a fire pit to toast marshmallows, you really couldn’t ask for much more.

And even if the weather’s not on your side, you can cosy up inside and look out through the vast windows that enjoy 180-degree views.

What guests say: “It’s rare that my expectations are exceeded – but this place did just that.

Location: Hathersage

Ever thought of going glamping in Derbyshire all by yourself?

Well, at North Lees Pods that’s not only normal but it’s actually encouraged as it’s cheaper to stay there on your own!

One night will set you back £29.50 but you’ll have to pay extra if you want to share your pod with more people.

North Lees is a great option if you want to get closer to nature as these pods really are just a replacement for your tent – you’ll need to bring everything you would bring if you were camping, except for your tent!

So whether you choose to stay by yourself or with others, you’re guaranteed a good time here, not least because of the pods’ beautiful woodland setting.

What guests say: “As it was early April and still cold I booked a camping pod for the first time and didn’t really know what to expect. I was amazed at how clean and comfortable they are, with lights and power points for recharging your phone. There was also an electric heater, which I had to switch off after about an hour as the place was getting too hot!”

16. Dale Farm Rural Bell Tents


Price per night: From £57 for 4 people

Location: Great Longstone, nr Ashford in the Water

Dale Farm Rural Bell Tents go hard on countryside views and comfortable accommodation.

Both tents have electricity, memory foam beds, and a cosy log-burning stove to keep you warm on those colder nights.

Outside there’s also a picnic table and a fire pit to cook and socialise around.

You never have to go too far to get anything either as there’s a farm shop on-site which sells their own beef, hogget and pork, and cakes, cards and eggs from their friends down the road. Delicious!

What guests say: “The bell tent is better than the photos! So cute, spotlessly clean and beautifully laid out. It has everything you need, a kettle, chairs, firelighters and logs, plenty of tea lights! There’s a toilet at the bottom of the site near the farmhouse and a wonderful little honesty shop, which is always open!”

17. Peak Yurts


Price per night: From £79 for 4 people

Location: New Mills, nr Chapel-en-le-Frith

There are two traditional hand-crafted Mongolian yurts to choose from, both of which benefit from a heater, double bed, two futon beds, phone charger, and tea and coffee making facilities.

However, if the yurts don’t take your fancy, there’s also a shepherds hut on-site, with prices starting from just £60 a night. Bargain!

What guests say: “Just spent a lovely night at this yurt. Such a gorgeous spot and the yurt is fab with lots of lovely touches. Our kids loved the drum and toasting marshmallows on the fire pit. The Beehive pub which is five minutes away serves lovely food. Would definitely recommend it.”

24. Poplars Farm Pods


Price per night: From £70 for 2 people

Location: Cross o’th’hands

Poplars Farm Pods are the definition of ‘cheap and cheerful’ but when you’re only paying £70 a night, there really isn’t much to complain about.

It’s a case of BYOB at Poplars Farm, meaning bring your own bedding (as well as your own booze!) but they can provide bedding at an additional cost of £20 if you don’t want to lug it along with you.

However, don’t think you need to bring everything as the pods do benefit from a heater, kettle, mugs, cutlery, plates, tea towel, washing up bowl, fridge, microwave, toaster, TV, outdoor table and chairs, BBQ, and firepit.

27. Bertie’s Retreat Shepherds Hut


Price per night: From £112 for 2 people

Location: Foolow, nr Eyam

I don’t think it’s hard to see why Bertie’s Retreat Shepherds Hut is one of my favourite places to go glamping in Derbyshire.

It’s beautiful from the outside, and the story is the same inside. Modern amenities, such as a well-equipped kitchen and flatscreen TV, are paired with soft furnishings to create a cosy, yet contemporary, atmosphere.

Location: Melbourne, nr Derby

Fancy sleeping lakeside? Or maybe you’re a keen fisher?

If your answer to one (or even both) of those questions was a resounding yes, then you better book a stay in one of Springwood Fisheries’ Pods ASAP!

There are two types of glamping pod to choose from, Standard and Deluxe, with prices shooting up to £80 a night for the Deluxe pods – though I think they’re well worth the upgrade.

Inside these pods, you get an en-suite, kitchenette, TV, and a double bed.

They’re basically little homes away from home!

What guests say: “Just left after spending the night in one of the pods and it has been amazing. Such a beautiful site, very relaxing and had a beautiful view of the fishing pond.

(So much so that you’ll never want to leave!)

But if you do, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views and outdoor seating made with dining alfresco in mind.

What guests say: “Beautiful space with attention to detail and sympathetic craftsmanship to renovate a historic railway carriage. Super cosy with the wood burner even when the rain came!

33. Ernest’s Retreat Pods


Price per night: From £49 for 2 people or £59 for 5 people

Location: Span Carr, nr Chesterfield

Ernest’s Retreat is home to a whole host of different pods, sleeping anywhere between two and five people – and the best part is that they’re all really easy on your wallet too.

Comprising only beds, they’re all simple inside (reflecting the price tag) but who can complain when you’ve got a proper roof over your head and a heater to keep you warm?

Oh, and they also supply a kettle so you can have that all-important morning coffee or cup of tea. Bottoms up!

What guests say: “This place is perfect for an escape into nature. Our glamping pod was more than I expected. It was spacious and had a little kettle and complimentary tea/coffee. Comfortable beds. Clean and well looked after facilities include toilets/showers with nice warm water. Beautiful scenery, friendly staff.”

34. Ashover Safari Tent


Price per night: From £100 for 4 people

Location: Ashover, nr Chesterfield

Ashover Safari Tent might just be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Derbyshire and when you see both the interior and the views, you’ll understand why

The safari tent has a spacious and fully equipped living space with a large deck terrace area so you can drink, dine alfresco, and soak up the sunsets to your heart’s content.

Venture a little further into the tent and you’ll find two bedrooms: one with a four-poster double bed and the other with two single beds.

Oh, and of course, this wouldn’t be a luxurious safari tent without your private en-suite.

What guests say: “This place is just wonderful. It’s private and secluded. The fire pit was a lovely addition too. The tent was spotless, linen was comfy and a proper inside bathroom was a luxury! We couldn’t fault or change a thing about this place, other than we didn’t book long enough to stay here!”

35. The Hut on the Hill


Price per night: From £61 for 2 people

Location: Slackhall, nr Chapel-en-le-Frith

Last but absolutely by no means least we have the aptly named Hut on the Hill that’s enviously positioned looking out over one of the best views in the High Peak.

However, you’ll not only see amazing views from your hut, but you’ll also see Nevada, Hermes and Alpha Ed, three friendly alpacas that you share your field with.

The inside is gorgeous with its kitchenette and en-suite but I can imagine you’ll rather spend your time outside stargazing around the Indian fire pit.

What guests say: “My stay at the shepherd’s hut exceeded expectations! It’s located in a fantastic place for exploring the Peak District for the first time. The hut inside was surprisingly spacious and had all the amenities I needed for a four-night stay, and the log burner kept the hut nice and cosy!”
