Glamping in Derbyshire is looking festive already. Christmas is approaching rapidly and the farm and campsite are both looking very seasonal under a fall of fresh snow. Our beautiful cedar and spruce camping pods are proving very popular to people wanting to take a winter holiday glamping in Derbyshire! They’re cosy and make the perfect base for anyone wanting to explore Derbyshire’s winter attractions. And since each one of our camping pods is supplied with its very own hot tub, you can plan a romantic evening of relaxation when you’ve finished taking in all the local sights.

We’ve had a think about a few places that you might like to visit while you’re staying with us in the Christmas period. Although the Chatsworth Christmas Market is over now, there’s the house to wander round and marvel at. The theme this year is Charles Dickens, and as always, the decorations are amazing.

The village of Castleton has got to be one of the prettiest places to go and take in the Christmas lights. Just after dark, and before you come back to your cosy glamping pod, how about a stroll round the picturesque shops and a glass of mulled wine in one of the pubs there?

Christmas Carols at Haddon Hall looks to be another spectacular local event. The hall is not far away from Knotlow Farm, just the other side of Bakewell on the A6 to Matlock. This year, a number of the hall’s most striking rooms have been decorated each to represent a popular Christmas carol. With roaring fires and twinkling Christmas lights, this is another truly memorable must-visit Peak District attraction.

There’s plenty on slightly further afield too, with the market towns of Chesterfield and Leek not half an hour’s drive away, and Stoke-on-Trent, Nottingham, Derby, Sheffield and Manchester all less than an hour away. And at the end of the day, when you’re ready for some rest and relaxation, what could be nicer than a glass of mulled wine in your glamping pod before you settle down to sleep, or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, a dip in the hot tub after dark with the fairy lights sparkling on the fresh, clean snow! Glamping in Derbyshire can be just as good as a trip to Lapland, with the right weather in place…
