Gaia’s Hideaway


This handmade Mongolian yurt - with Red Cedar, wood-fired Hot-tub - can be found on the site of eco-friendly Upper Hurst Farm, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. The very private and secluded setting offers spectacular, far reaching views over he Derbyshire hills, this really does make for a wonderfully unique glamping break. There is also a fabulous, cosy barn conversion, Gaia Lodge on-site, also with private Hot-tub.

Just 1 mile from the traffic free Manifold Way and 1 mile from Beresford Dale, both of which are favourites for walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike, Gaia’s Hideaway is wonderfully set up with handmade furnishings and a large circular bed with sumptuous feather pillows, a softly draped canopy and Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels. The owner also provides fluffy dressing gowns and a breakfast hamper of ingredients for an excellent full English, so you can get cosy and tuck in. There is a sociable, south-facing decked area outside with gas Barbeque, and a footpath leading to a red cedar wood fired tub exclusively for yurt guests. The yurt has a self-contained mini-kitchen area with cooking and washing up facilities, and the dining and living areas are arranged around a Persian rug and central wood burner. Finally, there is a compost toilet outside the yurt, and toilet and shower facilities are just 165 yards away on the adjacent caravan and camping site, where the owners also live.

Upper Hurst Farm has a nature-based ethos, encouraging bio-diversity in fields and hedgerows. In addition, the majority of energy is provided from sustainable sources or solar panels. Resident animals include four characterful and friendly mini Shetland ponies. There are resident little owls as well as other indigenous owls and buzzards, and peregrine falcons are a common sight. Swallows and curlews return here every spring.
Location is everything, Upper Hurst Farm is rural yet also very central. The famed market towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Leek are all within 20 minutes drive. You can stroll 2 miles to the picture-postcard village of Hartington, or amble half a mile across fields to the local village stores and nearest pub, which serves food and is dog friendly. The infamous Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can be reached in around 30 minutes, as can one of the country’s most popular theme parks, Alton Towers. Shop ¾ mile, pub serving food ½ mile.
