What can I say about our Cosy Cabin to best describe it .... one of a kind with the sounds of the river calming you and the views to stun you.

Even though we see our views every day we still sit and stare at the wonder and the ever changing landscape with the change of the seasons. The seasons are very distinctive in the peaks.... spring is so fresh and bright, summer is beautiful with panoramic skies and amazing sun rises and sun sets, the autumn colours over the land and then the fresh crispness of the winter.... and the  snow....nothing more peaceful than a snowy day with a roaring log burning fire....

We aim to offer our guests everything we would hope to enjoy if we were visiting, after many unforgettable glamping holidays  ourselves.


Our stays include fluffy towels, bath robes (available on request), wood burning stove with logs and kindling supplied, cooking equipment, including camping stove, fridge and cutlery including cafetiere, glasses , wine glasses (including champagne flutes if you have something extra special to celebrate!)   Private facilities including eco-toilet and shower.

We also have BBQ facility's and an outside private eating and relaxing area just for you.


We also supply our guests with a welcome hamper with fresh produce and some initial supplies you may need, as well as some treats to get you settled in!

Families are welcome but unfortunately no pets.


You'll find a Guide on the area inside our cabin and walks that you may want to try and places you may want to visit but a good book in front of the log burner may be the only thing on your agenda, which is fine as the cabin is private so you wont be disturbed unless you need us.


As testament to all of this Buxton has been named one of the best places to live in Britain by the Sunday Times, come and see for yourself....

 Our local area is full of places to visit. Lets start with the historic spa town of Buxton, around 5 minutes by car or maybe a 30 minute walk, lots of restaurants and cool bars, a theatre and events held locally throughout the year at the Pavilion Gardens, its great for all of the family. A train station is also available, and a taxi service. Many walks are also here like Pooles Cavern and Solomon's Temple.

Leek is a 15 minute drive past The Roaches, a bustling market town, which is well known for its many antique and quaint little home shops, also markets are held Wednesdays and weekends. Its lively at night and many bars and restaurants to try.

Bakewell, maybe 25 minutes by car, famous for the Bakewell Tart, Is a beautiful picture postcard Derbyshire village to visit with a stream running through it. Lovely little coffee shops, gift shops and eateries are found here and other little typical Derbyshire villages can be found on the way.

Castleton, maybe 35 minutes away, is another small but bustling town well known for the spectacular view from Peveril Castle. Again there are more walking routes up Cave Dale and Winnats Pass, there are 3 caverns to explore also.

Goyt Valley, a 15 minute drive, a favourite to walk, or visit and take a picnic, two reservoirs, old ruins, a Spanish Shrine and much more to see.

Manifold Valley, picturesque and great for a walk or bike ride, the scenery is not to be missed, and country pubs along the way!

Alton Towers, maybe 3o minutes, one of the uk's largest and most popular theme parks. After a hectic day there you will be glad to come back to the peace and quiet of the cabin! 

....Just some ideas, but hard to choose our favourites....
