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 . A local breakfast hamper is provided on arrival . 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.
Would you like to make magical memories that last a lifetime?
We hope to welcome you soon.

This is the second time we've had the absolute pleasure of staying at Peak Glamping Hideaway. This time we stayed in the Shepherd's Hut (we stayed in the Bell-Tent last year - equally as good). The facilities are excellent and we even had Sean/Shaun(?) the little cat to keep us company round the fire and to fuss (although he did steal a burger bun and run off with it so you have to watch him!) The welcome was warm, the scenery stunning and it was just a great getaway from the noise and bustle of home for a few days to recharge our batteries. The silence is something I have never experienced elsewhere and was so calming and relaxing to just sit and chill in. I cannot recommend Peak Glamping Hideaway enough if you're looking for a relaxing stay away from things. Buxton is not far away and the Peaks are just a great place to explore if you're more active than we are/were in regards to walks. If the skies are clear its great for nerdy star-gazers like myself also. We will be back next year as we've yet to experience a stay in the Yurt and want to give that a try.
We came and stayed in the Sunrise Yurt for 2 nights as a surprise getaway for my partners Birthday, from the minute we arrived we felt welcomed. The Yurt itself was spacious and very well presented and incredibly comfortable. We were very lucky that the weather was glorious for the time we stayed but in the evenings when the sun went down we lit the log burner to take the chill off, it was just lovely! Very well placed for access to all the really great areas for walking and activities within the Peak district. I couldn't recommend this place any more highly we had a fabulous time and will definitely come again!!!
Cosy,Romantic and scenic
I stayed in the sunrise yurt with my partner for three nights. Even though we arrived in by no means fortuitous weather conditions, any discomfort was allayed by the warm welcome we received from the hostess Tiffany. This was enhanced by us showing around the immediately enticing tour of the yurt. We found the stay incredibly comfortable accompanied by tremendous views. Additionally, the breakfast hamper and the quality of the kitchen fittings made the stay stress-free and we knew we could be easily self-sustaining. I would recommend this stay to anyone wishing to escape the city with their partner.

Thanks fo your review! So so pleased you enjoyed your stay here. We hope to welcome you back in the future! Best wishes Tiffany.
Fantastic Getaway, We will be back!
I have just stayed in the Sunrise yurt with my boyfriend and we had such a great time. It was the ideal place to get away after lockdown. The yurt had a comfy luxurious bed and was complete with cosy wood burner and extra touches such as fairy lights and candles. The washrooms and kitchen were spotless and clean with antibacterial sprays and hand sanitizer for us to use. Lovely rural location with great walks and views, we will be back.
Lovely stay with amazing views
This place was really cute and quirky and we enjoyed our stay but unfortunately there were quite a few niggles which really took the edge off: Half the bed was really wet on the first night, not sure if the window had been left open and it rained? Not nice. There was no milk in the room for making hot drinks and insufficient coffee sachets. There was no hot water in the shepherds hut for washing up as it was broken and the tap dripped constantly. There was a toaster in the room which was broken. Despite there being an array of herbs and spices in the kitchen there was no salt or pepper. There was a random thong outside the communal kitchen area which was a bit gross! There were shared towels in the bathroom which isn’t ideal during Covid . On the plus side: The host Tiff came to show us around and was really helpful with advice about the fire There was a friendly horse in the next field who came over to say hello a few times The views were incredible and it was lovely and quiet, we only saw the host and 1 other person during our stay The bathroom was clean and modern and the kitchen was well equipped The welcome breakfast hamper was a lovely touch and really delicious The stove kept the room nice and toasty Overall a great place to stay but more attention to detail required from the owners to make this quaint little shepherds hut with incredible views live up to the online reviews
First glamping experience
We stayed in the shepherds hut and it was fabulous. So cosy and very clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed within the hut and there was also the kitchenette we could also utilise. We used the fire pit and also the BBQ. It was bliss. A complete getaway from the hustle and bustle of the world we live in and we’d love to go back! Thank you Tiffany for your wonderful hospitality.
Amazing views, great facilities
We stayed in the bell tent which had amazing views across the valley and a lovely comfy bed. The kitchen and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the little extra touches of hot chocolate and biscuits (and the breakfast hamper!) were great. Would definitely recommend a stay at Peak Glamping Hideaway for anyone looking to explore the Peak District.
Beautiful views and great facilities
We stayed in the Bell Tent which had a lovely comfy bed and beautiful views out over the valley. The showers and bath were spotlessly clean as was the kitchen. Thoughtful little touches like biscuits and hot chocolate were great and the breakfast hamper was delicious. All in all a great stay!
Beautiful, comfortable and secluded
Wow-- I couldn't speak more highly of our Peak Glamping Hideaway experience. The location is so secluded and picturesque. We stayed in the dreamcatcher bell tent, the bed was comfier than many hotels I've stayed in, and you have your own private decking, bbq and fire pit. Loads of nice little touches in the room and left for you in the kitchen. Bathroom facilities excellent. We will definitely be back! Thank you.
Absolutely perfect :)
Had a fab weekend in the most beautiful setting - lovely warm kitchen facilities and beautiful bathrooms made a super lovely experience even more lovely. Gloriously remote whilst actually being close to some fab pubs. Gorgeous walks right from the door, and the Shepherd's Hut was lovely and cosy even in the wind and rain! Everything is beautifully finished off and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back and will be recommending to friends and family :)
If you want undisturbed piece, this is perfect! The log burner kept the shepherd's hut cozy all weekend, plenty of wood and coal was provided to keep out the february cold. The kitchen, shower and bathroom were quaint and clean, in keeping with that country cottage feel.... and the view of the valley was beautiful. For a valentine's romantic weekend away, this was our perfection! Thanks!
The perfect getaway!
The two of us recently stayed in the Shepherds Hut and had a lovely time. It is a cosy place in a quaint location. It’s ideal for those who seek a short escape from normal life. The breakfast hamper and the alcohol provided was an added bonus. Some of the pubs are few miles away, however, the Peak District is meant for enjoying long walks, especially after a few pints! Neither of us could fault it and would encourage anyone else to book this place for a special getaway..
Perfect countryside getaway
This place more than met with our expectations. The yurt itself is very nicely presented inside and the bed is super-comfortable. The kitchen/wash block is very well appointed and there is sufficient space for all the occupants to not feel crowded. The view from our yurt, over the rolling hills was spectacular and one of the many reasons why we would look to come again in the future. We made use of the BBQ outside our hut and the fire-pit so we could enjoy the peace and quiet of the stunning countryside. Check in was a breeze and the breakfast hamper a delicious treat.

Thanks for your review Stuart, we are so pleased you all enjoyed your stay here!!
Our first but definitely not our last 💫✨
What an amazing experience! To start with we took warm winter clothes for the night believing we would be cold in the Shepherd's Hut but with the log burning stove we were very toasty. Tiffany was there to greet us to show us around the awesome facilities and to answer any questions we had, Tiffany is lovely, very approachable and happy to help. For me as a photographer the added bonus was no light pollution, so I had my first opportunity at some Astrophotography and I have to say to all you night photographers out there, this is a perfect little hideaway to capture the magic of the night, you will not be disappointed. The owners here have thought of everything, the showers were warm and the roll top bath looked very inviting, we just didn't have the time and their were toiletries and extra towels if needed. The kitchen comes fully equipped just like home. This truly is Luxury Glamping and we will be back.
Sheepwell shepherds hut A star weekend !!!!

Thanks so much Emma, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay here! You’re welcome back anytime! Tiffany
Two nights in the Shepherd's Hut were just the revitalising break we needed. Nothing to pack other than our own clothes, everything else we needed was provided by our very friendly hostess. It really is miles from anywhere, apart from the Traveller's Rest pub, which is a healthy mile and a half's walk away and provides a retro choice of pub food and decor. The horse in the next field could almost reach our door and was determined to keep grinning at us until we fed him (we resisted). We cooked ourselves two hearty breakfasts from the food provided, which set us up well for a lengthy walk from our door on the first day and then a bike ride down the Manifold Valley the following day. A walk up Chrome Hill is also a rewarding evening stroll from nearby Hollingsclough. The hut itself was wonderfully cosy, and the seating area outside was a great place to relax in the gloaming. I would, however, say that anyone of more than six foot might find the bed in one of the Yurts (which look splendid) more suited to their size.
Peace & luxury
Had a fabulous weekend staying in the Harvest Moon yurt with my partner and children. The views from the yurt were wonderful and the only things we could hear were sheep and birds. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were top notch and the shower was probably the best we’ve had on any holiday! Lovely little extras such as the breakfast pack made it extra special. We did a lovely walk from the site and along the river to the village of Longnor and back, it was great to not have to get in the car to do this.
Amazing location, wonderful accomodation, lovely people
We had a wonderful time in the Sunrise yurt last weekend. The yurt was clean, cosy and surprisingly spacious (it fit the four of us in with plenty of room to spare!). It also felt wonderfully secluded - the other yurt is a good distance away so you don't feel overlooked. Tiffany and the team have really thought of everything - their attention to detail is incredible. The kitchen and bathroom are very well stocked and had everything we needed. Lots of thoughtful touches (breakfast hamper, flowers in the yurt). I particularly enjoyed the wild flower meadow you walked through to get to the Yurt and the view over the valley was spectacular :) Would highly recommend this place to small groups and anyone wanting a romantic getaway. We'll be back
Wonderful homely escape
We arrived when it was heavy rain, we were greeted by a lovely woman who showed us around the outhouse and the Shepherds hut where we were staying for the night. The bathroom and showers were wonderful, and the outhouse has an oven, microwave, freezer, fridge, cold water, games, all plates and glasses and a dining table, it was so well equipped and we were so shocked! We walked to the Shepherds hut, it was spotless. The outdoor area was mowed and everything was so clean and tidy. We spent our night having a fire and a bbq in front of the Shepherds hut once the rain had stopped and I know it will be a memory my partner and I will treasure all our lives. We would come back in a heart best to this accommodation, it's was beautifully accommodating and the attention to detail goes such a long way. We have stayed in many glamping sites.. And this is by far the best one! Don't hesitate.. Book it, you will love it!
Sunning facilities in a tranquil setting!
Me and my partner visited Peak Glamping Hideaway after booking last minute in Late May! We stayed in one of the yurts which was an absoulute delight! They were quite cosy, and had an amazing log burner and Kingsize bed, the kitchen area in the 'sheep gathering fold' is quite quirky and different to; and the bathrooms rather boutique and spacious! Tiffany, Pam and john we're always on hand when needed and nothing was to much trouble, even when we needed kebab sticks! The views from this place are amazing, so peaceful and not a sound of a car to be heard! We will defiantly be back!
An absolute delight!
What a find! Right from the moment we booked the Owners were on hand to answer any questions we had and made the whole process run smoothly, from advising what to bring to making sure we had directions. Upon arrival Pam came to meet me and my husband and showed us around our gorgeous accommodation and the facilities. Everywhere had been very well thought out and was kept clean and tidy. The beds were extremely comfortable, with twinkling lights and candles and the all important wood burner made for a very romantic stay! Facilities were great- roll top bath to soak in!! Gorgeous views down the valley, plently of things to do in the area, and a peaceful quiet place to return to. Would highly recommend! Will be taking my friends to stay soon!!
