A perfect base for exploring the Peak District, if it’s a holiday away from the usual or just a break with a difference the Yurts at Knotlow Farm offer a unique experience for all to enjoy.

Breathtaking scenery and landscape, with hundreds of miles of footpaths and fresh country air, makes Britain’s first National Park a magical place to be. Whether its exploring the countryside, enjoying any number of outdoor activities in the area or ambling around one of its many stately homes or simply just getting away from it all, the Peak District really won’t disappoint.

The site itself is a hidden gem, a warm, friendly, family run campsite in the heart of the tranquil and picturesque landscape of the Peak District National Park. A small peaceful site surrounded by over a hundred acres of farmland and well away from any main roads or traffic.

Furnished with a distinctly Moroccan feel with woollen rugs, bright colourful throws, twinkling fairy lights, solar lighting and large skylight lanterns, our Yurts are cosy, comfortable and definitely different, guaranteed to make you feel completely relaxed and away from it all.

In each of our four Yurts we have a fully functional kitchen housed within a large oak antique sideboard. We have tried to include most things you would need from your kitchen to cook, bake and serve up your glamping cuisine.

Outside each Yurt there is a large decking area, a barbecue/fire pit and a picnic bench. If you are looking to book more then one Yurt there is also more then enough room on the field to bring the picnic tables and barbecues together for a banquet and alfresco dining.
