EcoPod Holidays

We now have an onsite Pub..!

Glamping in Staffordshire


Stag / Hen





The New EcoPod site is nestled within a hundred tree Orchard on a 150 acre woodland and meadow, with snaking pathways linking the EcoPods together, truly a great place to relax and unwind. There are so many bird calls, you could be in a jungle...

We also have a games cupboard with free to use games including; Swing-ball, Giant Jenga, Boules, Badminton and a lovely forest walk with seating in the glade.

Breaking news...We now have an onsite Pub in the woods ! With great locally brewed beer..!

  • EcoPod Holidays

    The site is high on a hill with stunning vistas and huge expansive skies looking over the Weaver Hills and Churnet Valley. It’s very quiet apart from the local birds, who are noisy...! Especially at dawn and dusk. So many birds in the enchanted wood. I love the site, I just like being here and everyone who comes loves it too...! No noisy roads and were not on a flight path...Just the woods, birds and nature to absorb you in... there are loads of trees and space around each EcoPod; you can lie all day in the dappled light from the leaves and remember your childhood when there was nothing to do but daydream...enough about me...! See You soon x

  • Inside and Out

    Believe it or not I have built all the EcoPods myself...Everyone is different and it has taken a long time. Back in 2006 we gained a New Environmental Economy grant, delivered through the Peak District National Park. Our workshop is very close to Peak Waste Recycling, they know me well there and have supported me throughout my EcoPod journey! Recycling has always been a passion of mine and all the EcoPods are made from recycled wood, reclaimed materials inside and local Larch cladding outside.

  • Facilities

    Each EcoPod is fully insulated with its own log burner, hot shower, equipped mini kitchen, and phone charging facilities turning camping into glamping, but still with an ecologically sound basis. We have worked hard to provide an environmentally friendly camping / glamping experience that we know you will enjoy.
    This glamping site is totally off grid and was supported by the Peak District National Park through a New Environmental Economy grant from the EU with a grant in 2006.
