Get away from it all in the quiet countryside village of Anslow, and relax in a traditional Mongolian Yurt. Sleeping up to 4-6 people the yurts are set in a spacious enclosed field and offer all year round comfort thanks to a woodburning stove. A hot tub is on offer for up to 8 people - a great place to relax and star gaze.

Located close to the Peak District, you can enjoy a morning walk and then stop off at the market town of Ashbourne before visiting the brewing town of Burton Upon Trent, famous for its Bass beer. If you want to shop till you drop, then Derby is close by with its large shopping centre. Families can enjoy local activities at the National Forest Adventure Farm, and Alton Towers and Monkey Forest are only a short drive away.

The Yurts themselves are to be found on Gate Farm and offer glamping at its best. With a king size bed and a sofa bed, they are perfect for a family getaway. There is no electricity which adds to the traditional camping feel, but the glow of the woodburning stove will give you warmth and light in the winter months.

In the summer, you can enjoy cooking at the Finnish BBQ hut or if you prefer do use the fully equipped kitchen in the communal area. The BBQ hut seats up to 24 people so a great way to meet the other glampers or why not go with a group of friends!

There is an outdoor play area for children including playhouse, swings and a slide and chance to feed the farm animals too. Separate luxurious washrooms are available and include lockers where you can charge your mobiles and tablets.

Minimum 2-night stay and a £100 deposit is required to secure your booking. Dogs welcome subject to a refundable deposit of £50.

Prices start from £100 per night during low season and £150 per night during high season. This is based on 4 sharing.

If you want a holiday on the move it is also possible to rent Bertie and Florence - traditional motorhomes for up to 6 guests each.
