Cosy, characterful and utterly charming, the Woodpecker Yurt is the ultimate Peak District escape for couples. Can you imagine anything more romantic than enjoying starry skies and complete tranquillity in your private hot tub?
In the heart of the beautiful Peak District countryside, wonderfully rural yet just a 20 minute walk from pubs and village shops, you will find Scaldersitch Farm, a boutique camping experience which really takes outdoor living to a whole new level. The accommodation has been designed to work in harmony with the landscape and comprises a selection of authentic yet exquisitely furnished tipis and yurts, all of which boast wonderful wood-fired hot tubs. The facilities on site are abundant, with gorgeous washrooms, a cartshed barn kitchen and a wellness yurt all at your disposal. And the surroundings, full of fields, footpaths and farm shops, are heavenly. This is an enchanting little hideaway.
The site is just 1 mile from Hartington village and there is a good choice of pubs and small shops within a 20 minute walk. From the gate you can access miles of footpaths which will take you right into the Peak District and attractions like the historic spa town of Buxton and the magnificent Chatsworth House are not far away. All manner of activities and workshops can be arranged.
Directions provided on booking.

The yurt has a handmade king size bed (and can fit an additional single or cot if required) which is made up with sumptuous bedding and fluffy towels. A large wood burning stove will keep you warm whatever the weather, the twinkling fairy lights create atmosphere and tea/coffee making facilities are provided. The wash room is 40 metres away.
Each tipi/yurt has an outdoor seating area from where you can enjoy the views, and all of them have a private wood-fired hot tub where you can sip a glass of wine as you gaze at the stars. The kitchen barn is well equipped with crockery, cutlery, glasses, gas hobs, a hot water urn, a toaster, a dishwasher, a fridge freezer and indoor seating. And don’t forget the wellness yurt where you can enjoy relaxing treatments carried out by talented therapists.
The site can be rented as an exclusive use venue and it is perfect for get-togethers, celebrations and workshops. Catering can be supplied and the owners have an excellent list of local suppliers so just get in touch for details.
