This glamping site near Uttoxeter, situated on a Staffordshire dairy farm, is a lovely option for friends and family groups who want to get together for a weekend away or special occasion in any season. Perfect for girls and hen weekends. Good motorway links make it easily accessible and central from all areas of the UK.
Purpose built heated communal facilities at Barnside at Tinker's Bells work perfectly on many levels. The Barn is set up for everyone to eat together and relax next to the wood burner. The bar is hugely popular with guests, for a quiet drink or as a celebration hot spot. There's plenty of space for activities - dancing, cocktail shaking, willow weaving and yoga. Upstairs the loft is ideal as an exclusive area for beauty treatments or a tarot card reading.
This might be a glamping site but the kitchen doesn't lack modern conveniences and even includes a dishwasher. The Coop outside seating area is under cover with a fire pit so is very useable at any time of year for the whole gang to enjoy a barbecue or some star gazing on a clear night. Leather sofas in the Barn are comfy and inviting to spend some chill time together in a really toasty environment with a favourite tipple. We can provide a couple of hot tubs too, at an extra charge.
The Nissen Huts are cosy sleeping areas, each with 8 single beds, plenty of space, a radiator and ample electric sockets. They are individually designed with modern soft furnishings and attractive occasional furniture. The shower block nearby has 3 wet rooms with power showers and vanity mirrors.
There is no shortage of walks from the door of the huts with sprawling farmland and a fishing lake for water sports surrounding the accommodation. A short drive takes you to the Staffordshire Moorlands or the edge of the Peak District for hiking and cycling. Drop into Alton or Denstone for a pint in the local pubs or head off to Uttoxeter to see the Beamhurst Museum and famous racecourse. Alton Towers is nearby and an absolute must day out for thrill seekers and fun lovers.
