Gollin Farm Shepherds Hut

UK England East Midlands Derbyshire Buxton

Cosy and romantic shepherd's hut glamping in the heart, and at the highest heights, of the Peak District National Park

“Dream Big, Aim High”, reads the rustic red and white sign above the bed in this cosy shepherd’s hut. It seems fitting given the location. With the wood-burner stoked up for the night and the quilted double duvet pulled snuggly around you, you’ll certainly enjoy sweet dreams, while the setting, in the heart of the Peak District National Park is about as high as they come. The highest settlement in England, the local village of Flash, is less than a mile down the narrow lane.

Yet, while we can wax lyrical about the views, the surrounding mountains and the drystone-wall-striped scenery of the Peak District, it’s the nuts and bolts of hospitality that this glamping site really gets right. Set in a one-acre meadow on Gollin Farm, the two-person shepherd’s hut has an interior reminiscent of an old country cottage – think chunky Welsh dresser, deep armchairs and a stack of logs that will keep the fire going until morning – while outside there’s a firepit for late-night s’mores toasting and a barbecue for farm-shop steak. Since there’s just the one hut on the site, you’ve the whole place to yourself. There’s plenty of room to kick back beside the hut and it’s a short stroll down the meadow path to a modern toilet and shower, watched along the way by your neighbours: chickens, sheep and a single pet deer that thinks she’s part of the flock. If you come in springtime you’ll have the added bonus of buoyant lambs on site too.

While candles beside the bed, board games for rainy days and a digital radio on standby make the shepherd’s hut a neat retreat for couples, it’s walkers and outdoor enthusiasts that are most in their element. There are ample walking opportunities right from the doorstep, from Axe Edge Moor and Crome Hill to the Three Shires Heads (the hilltop point where the boundaries of Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire all meet), while nearby towns like Buxton provide popular café stops for lunch. The village of Flash, though rural, also has a decent café and pub, which acts as a popular starting point for hikers. Since it’s the highest point in England you can convince yourself the walking will all be easy downhill, too. No doubt the spectacular views – of brown peaks and rocky outcrops – will quickly make you realise otherwise.

Beautiful and peaceful

The location was very stunning. It was even better than the pictures. Everything you need is there to make your stay as easy and relaxing as possible. Faye was very welcoming, with fresh eggs, milk, butter and jam, tea coffee biscuits etc which really added to the place. We went by bus and as long as you plan it In advance it was relatively easy to get to, and a beautiful walk! Lucky the deer, turkey, sheep and lamb living in the fields were the cherry on the icing! We would definitely come here again

Cosy, luxury alternative stay in the Peak District

We had an amazing stay at Gollin Farm shepherd's hut. The views are stunning and it's a quiet retreat where you can relax in cosy comfort. Faye had thought of everything to make the stay extra special; fresh eggs from the farm, an umbrella and torch for the walk to the nearby facilities, logs and coal for the wood burner, tea and biscuits - it was perfect! Will definitely stay again and highly recommend to anyone.

Fantastic experience

The Shepherds Hut exceeded our expectations. Faye had lit the wood burner ahead of our arrival so that it was cosy & warm for us. The facilities were clean & well kept. There was everything we needed to make our stay warm & comfortable & the views were just stunning. It is somewhere we would certainly return to & recommend to friends & family.
