Peake's Retreats

UK England West Midlands Staffordshire

Gate Farm, Hanbury Road, Anslow, Burton On Trent, Staffordshire DE13 9QT

Luxury yurt glamping near the Peak District where, from the tiny-toiletries to the family-sized hot tub, every single detail is covered

Mongolian yurts, a Finnish glamping hut and a purely English location three miles from the heart of the British beer brewing industry; there’s a pretty multi-cultural mix at Peake's Retreats in Staffordshire. And, like hops and malt, or yeast and barley, it’s a blend that works wonderfully well. From the bucket full of footballs, frizbees and outdoor toys, to the eight-seater hot tub with a coaster for your Prosseco, this is a glamping site where every detail has been covered. On a starry night with the wood-burner roaring and the owls hooting from a nearby tree, there are very few places we would rather be.

12 miles south of the Peak District and three miles from busy Burton On Trent (still home to a handful of excellent breweries, even if it is no longer the powerhouse it once was), Peake’s Retreats is a family run glamping site with just two large luxury yurts big enough to comfortably sleep up to six people. Inside, the king-sized beds and singles come with all the bedding and towels you need, while modern, luxury shower rooms feature plush organic toiletries, hair-dryers and full-length mirrors.

Yet while the cosy Finnish barbecue hut (allowing you to toast your steaks and marshmallows even in the dead of winter) and the well-equipped kitchen cabin only add to the sense that this is glamping for the over-pampered holidaymaker, the place still very much has a connection with the great outdoors: children are welcome to help affable owner Sarah collect the farm’s eggs and help with some of the animals – including lambs and piglets if you arrive in spring and early summer – while campfire cooking is encouraged, with a long and kindling starter kit and a cooking tripod provided outside each yurt.

Beyond your yurt-step lies the local village of Anslow – home to an excellent farm shop and florist as well as the nearest pub – while Burton On Trent’s renowned Brewing Museum is just three miles away. For most, however, it’s the drive north into the nearby Peak District that reaps the real rewards. Walking in the White Peak Area is a treat. Family ramblers should head to the National Trust's Ilam Park, a dog-friendly spot with gentle riverside walks and a popular tea-room overlooking the Italian gardens, while those looking for something more intrepid should start in the ash woods of Dovedale National Nature Reserve and climb up Thorpe Cloud hill. At 942-feet it’s no giant, but on a clear day you can see all the way back south to Anslow where your evening’s hot tub awaits.

Just Perfect!

Greeted with champagne by Sarah who then gave us a tour of the site and all the facilities and what a wonderful place Peake's Retreats is. There is nothing I can fault and only have praise for the excellent experience Sarah and her family create. The yurts are sheer luxury and so well equipped, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Every thought has been taken care of and the little touches truly enchanting. Calling the shower block a shower block, really does not do it justice; it is a haven of tranquillity and smells divine with the complimentary Neal's Yard toiletries and can one person try them all? Well this person managed to :) The cooking facilities are like everything else - excellent and the complimentary breakfast hamper well stocked and presented like everything else - with real thought and attention to detail and to making people feel valued. To come back to this place and cook on the BBQ in the late evening sun and then lounge in the hot tub watching the stars come out, before falling into a bed made up with luxurious bedding as the candles flicker and the wood burner crackles - was just enchanting. I cannot recommend Peake's Retreats highly enough.

Beautiful surroundings

On arrival we were greeted by our host Sarah with a glass of champagne. Both Sarah and her family were most welcoming and made you feel comfortable straight away. The accommodation was excellent the facilities were immaculate the Yurt was beautifully turned out it was like stepping in to another world. You had a small stable fitted out like a country kitchen with a Range cooker. The toilet and shower block were immaculate with 2 showers and WC. We were blessed with the most glorious weather which made our stay even better. Within a short drive you have the National Forestry Center in Rosliston and the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas. 5 Stars across the board from us.
