Long Valley Yurts at Knotlow Farm

We say

After the huge success of their first luxury campsite in the Lakes, it comes to no surprise to us that the folk at Long Valley Yurts – with their laid-back farm-glamping style – have also settled in the undulating hills of Derbyshire. Quite literally in fact, as the farm is slap bang in the middle of the Peaks National Park, and surrounded by a whopping 100 acres of rolling English farmland, with not a car, road or streetlight in sight.  The yurts are wonderfully traditional – fashioned from the original Asian Turkmen model – which means they're not just generously spacious and airy, but also sturdy as you like, and equipped to fight any unpredictable weather Britain can throw at them.  In keeping with the Long Valley style, they're all saturated in deep Moroccan warm hues, insulated by beautiful embroidered rugs and furnished with authentic North African and Central Asian inspired bits and bobs. They also come with everything you could possibly need during your stay, from cutlery & crockery, to towels and bedding, leaving you with more time to assemble the hookah and brush up on your bongo skills.
