Panoramic Views:
Cosy up next to the log burner or pamper yourself in the wood-fired hot-tub under the stars. This fabulous, cosy barn conversion is compact, bijou and perfect as a romantic retreat for two. Gaia Lodge, a former piggery, nestles in an elevated position on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border which falls within the southern area of the Peak District National Park. Gaia Lodge boasts panoramic views of the undulating countryside, dotted with natural hedgerows and dry stone walls; so characteristic of the Derbyshire Dales. It can be found 165 yards away from the family run caravan and camping site of Upper Hurst Farm, which has been awarded the coveted Environmental Quality Mark award. The warm, gritstone cottage has been renovated with much love, with exposed Douglas fir King-post trusses, stone flag flooring and a log-burner for cosy nights in. Logs are provided free of charge as is WiFi.

Inside the Cottage:
The cottage is lavishly furnished with hand-made linen curtains and blinds, goose-feather & down pillows and duvet. We also have Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels, fluffy dressing gowns and a mini-breakfast hamper on arrival. It is enhanced further by fully controllable underfloor heating for toasty toes! The kitchen has a granite worktop with quality fixtures and fittings and modern appliances, including a dishwasher.
There is a stone-flagged seating area with a westerly aspect overlooking Ecton Hill which includes a washing line.

Outside the Cottage:
There is a small, gated and walled garden with a north-west aspect where you can enjoy the last drop of evening sun. This garden leads to a further completely private, decked patio area (south-west facing and becoming a little sun-trap) with a red cedar, wood-fired hot-tub, to provide a truly special and memorable stay. Within the decked patio area there is also a gas-fired barbecue and seating with sun-loungers.

The space
"What a little gem – in every way. Sue has created a relaxing and luxurious little retreat. The lodge is beautifully and lovingly decorated and furnished. Sue has thought about your every need and equipped the lodge accordingly. The hot tub is absolutely fantastic – especially during November. Sue is so kind and generous and there to help if needed but not in any way intrusive. The local walking is stunning and there are plenty of places to visit locally including good pubs and restaurants. Sue – you should be incredibly proud of your glorious lodge. A high thank you from us both xx"

We are very rural and in the centre of a Derbyshire Dale (1 mile) and a Staffordshire Dale (1 mile) so there are walks and cycle rides immediately from the site. We are also very central within the four major Peak District market towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Leek all about 10 miles away. Chatsworth House and Matlock are about 12 miles.

After getting planning permission in 2011, Sue built a touring site that now comprises 25 super pitches and 15 tent pitches, plus a warden’s pitch. There is also a holiday cottage for 2 with wood-fired hot-tub. The latest addition is Gaia's Hideaway, an authentic Mongolian Yurt also with hot-tub in a secluded spot with uninterrupted views - very magical indeed. Sue is the builder and owner of Upper Hurst Farm Caravans/Camping/Glamping and attributes her success (team included) to the unrivalled position Upper Hurst Farm enjoys in The Peak District National Park - the homely and welcoming customer service - and the exceptional quality that is evident in everything she does and builds. Sue genuinely takes pleasure from the positive experiences of our guests.
