EcoPod Holidays

Glamping in Derbyshire




Each EcoPod is fully insulated with its own log burner, hot shower, equipped mini kitchen, and phone charging facilities.

We have worked hard to provide an environmentally friendly camping / glamping experience we know you will enjoy.

The site itself is grassy, peaceful and private, with a Central fire pit, game room, willow dome, table tennis and ball games.

We also have our very own onsite pub and playground, The Knockerdown Inn.

We have a total of 16 spaces for family groups.
