Peak District glamping with hot tubs at Knotlow Farm
Glamping and camping in the Peak District with hot tubs!
Knotlow Farm is a welcoming family-run campsite, set in the tranquil, picturesque landscape of the Peak District National Park, halfway between Bakewell and Buxton. We cater for everyone, from couples to families, and you can bring a tent or a caravan and pitch up in one of our spacious camping fields or try posh camping for couples in one of our beautiful spruce-built glamping pods (each complete with its own hot tub).
Knotlow Farm caravan and campsite is located just outside the hamlet of Flagg, in the heart of the White Peak, and is owned and managed by John and Margaret Hollinrake and son and daughter-in-law Carl and Angelica. It is part of a traditional Peak District farmyard setting, and you can catch a glimpse of our Aberdeen Angus cattle and pedigree Dorper sheep and lambs grazing in the further fields in summer. You can hire a fire basket to warm your family at night, and order real Italian pizza from Angelica for an easy and delicious tea after a long day tramping in the hills. Camping holiday heaven.
Our location and attractions
Every Peak District glamping holiday should include a visit to one of the jewels in rural Derbyshire’s crown, Chatsworth House, which is just 10 minutes’ drive away, Chesterfield, with its fantastically twisted church spire, or Buxton and Bakewell, our most local towns. The popular, scenic town of Bakewell is just seven miles over the green, rolling hills, and the stately Georgian spa town of Buxton with its newly restored Crescent and impressive cast iron colonnades is seven miles in the opposite direction along the nearby A515. Bakewell has a busy agricultural scene on Mondays, with a big market in the town centre. Buxton is rather like a smaller version of Bath, dominated by the splendid architecture of the Palace Hotel, Devonshire Dome, Opera House, Thermal Baths and the Crescent, where you can now enjoy a swim in the rooftop pool, relax in one of the magnificent treatment rooms or book a heritage experience tour exploring the history of the town and its famous hot springs.
You cannot see or hear the main road from our campsite, and there is little here at Knotlow Farm to disturb your tranquility save the peaceful sound of the animals. The Limestone Way runs through part of our farm, enabling walking enthusiasts to enjoy fresh air and breathtaking scenery without the need for even a short drive. All of this makes us the ideal setting for your Peak District glamping holiday – we are close to local towns and amenities yet still right on the doorstep of Chatsworth House and the best walking trails in the area.
What are the facilities on site?
Our camping fields are part of a typical Derbyshire farmyard setting, and cater for both tents and caravan campers, with electric hook-ups, pot washing facilities, toilets and hot showers to refresh yourself in at the end of a long day trekking or touring the many local attractions. There is a small shop onsite, where you can get basic groceries and sweets, and we run a home-made pizza service every evening. You can also hire fire baskets. We’ve thought of everything to make your Peak District glamping holiday really easy to manage as well as special and memorable!
