Unique hand-made pod cabins located within walking distance of Carsington Water in the Derbyshire Dales.

EcoPod Holidays offer unique accommodation and a door to some of the most breath-taking corners of the Derbyshire Dales.
Choose from five bespoke pods, each fully insulated with its own log burner, hot shower, mini kitchen, compost toilet and music playing and phone charging facilities.
The site itself is grassy, peaceful and private; with a fire pit, communal seating, willow dome and access to its very own pub and playground. The site is also dog friendly – if they don’t mind the neighbours of donkeys, goats and geese!
As well as boasting easy access to the dramatically contrasting landscapes of the Peak District and an abundance of idyllic walking and cycle routes, the site is also within close proximity to quaint market towns such as Wirksworth and Bakewell.
Only a short drive away are attractions such as Chatsworth Estate, Alton Towers and Derbyshire’s very own ‘seaside’, Matlock Bath.
The site is also located within walking distance of Carsington Water, where you can try your hand at water sports such as sailing, canoeing and windsurfing; or walk or cycle around the 9-mile perimeter of the stunning reservoir.
Energy levels can be restocked at the café restaurant (famous for its delicious cake), before a lazy afternoon of birdwatching or browsing the boutique shops.
If you’ve brought the kids, you can wear them at the adventure playground before heading back to the cosy local pub for some hearty home-cooked grub, or order takeaway from Wirksworth or Ashbourne.
There are pods to accommodate singles, couples or families, or alternatively, the whole one acre site can be booked for larger parties.
The Pods can accommodate up to 16 guests and there is room for extra tents if required.
We have an exclusive one acre field in the grounds of the Knockerdown Inn. There is a central communal fire with seating, a willow dome with Giant Jenga and Swing ball table tennis and a children's games room with board games.
Brackendale Day Spa is just over the road and offers a day spa with a pool and sauna, along side holistic and beauty treatments. They specialise in double treatments so that you can come along with your friend, partner or family member to catch up while relaxing and being pampered. https://www.brackendaledayspa.co.uk/
Many places describe themselves as 'eco' - but we really are! Our cabins are built out of largely reclaimed materials with sheepswool insulation to keep you cosy. They are fully solar powered and leave no trace if removed. Just what a truly eco cabin should be!
Despite our glorious English weather it's always a good idea to bring thick socks and wellies - just in case!
The owner does not have a video of their glamping site.
Walk from the site to Carsington Water, it has everything you need for a great day out - and best of all most facilities are free! Paid activities include windsurfing, paddle boarding, canoeing, rowing and many more. There are various special family and nature events throughout the year - see the Carsington Water website for up to date information. On site boutique shops provide interest, and there is an excellent cafe, restaurant and ice cream shop.
