Ernest's Retreat
Ernests Retreat Glamping Getaways

Ernest’s Retreat is the perfect glamping getaway in the most beautiful location!  Hidden away in a peaceful spot, with elevated panoramic views stretching for miles over the surrounding countryside, Ernest’s Retreat is a family-run site offering high quality glamping holidays on the edge of the Peak District National Park

We are located just 3 miles from the pretty village of Ashover on the outskirts of Matlock.  In the middle of nowhere, yet close enough to enjoy all the sights of the Peak District, at Ernest’s Retreat you can enjoy stunning scenery, with wonderful walks right from the door, and soak up the peace and tranquillity of this fabulous area.


Glamping Pods at Ernest’s Retreat

At Ernest’s Retreat we offer a range of Glamping Pods suitable for couples and families.

The Rambler Pod (Sleeps 2)

We have six Rambler Pods available, each perfectly designed for 2 people.  Our Rambler Pods are fully insulated and double glazed, making them warm and cosy, and they have a lockable window and a door with curtains for privacy.  Inside, there are two double power points and a kettle.  The Pod has inside and outside lighting.    

Remember to bring everything else you would need to camp… except the tent!  This may include your own cooker, cutlery, plates, cups, pans, bedding, sleeping mats and/or airbeds.  We do not provide these items.

We have a purpose-built toilet block with shower facilities centrally located on the field.  The showers are temperature regulated and free of charge – no coin meters!  Toilet roll and hand soap is provided.

The Camping Cabin (Sleeps 4)

Our eight Camping Cabins are a fabulous and fun camping experience, purpose built as a fantastic retreat, whatever the weather.  They are ideal for family get-togethers, or a romantic break. 

The Camping Cabins have a central seating area, with space for a double mattress, and single-sized wooden sleeping benches to accommodate up to 4 people.

Each Camping Cabin comes equipped with a kettle and has two double power points, ideal for charging phones.  There is inside and outside lighting.

Ernest’s Retreat Location

Ernest’s Retreat is situated in open countryside just 3 miles from the pretty village of Ashover.  We are close to the market towns of Matlock, Matlock Bath and Bakewell, all of which are famed for their interesting shops and offer a great range of cafés, restaurants and pubs.  The elegant spa town of Buxton is also near, with its beautiful Georgian architecture and stunning Opera House.

Ernest’s Retreat is within easy travelling distance of a wide range of visitor attractions, including the magnificent cable cars over the Derwent Valley at the Heights of Abraham, and the historic country estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

At Ernest’s Retreat you’ll find the most beautiful walks right from your door, including direct access to the Chesterfield Round Walk.  We are also close to the wonderful traffic-free cycling and walking trails of the Monsal Trail and the High Peak Trail


Sales

If a short break in this wonderful location just isn’t enough, why not buy your very own holiday home here? 

On our purpose-designed site with stunning panoramic views across five counties, we offer for sale a choice of leisure static caravans to meet your personal specifications.  You can choose your own pitch and your own caravan, on a first-come first-served basis, and your first year of pitch fees is included in the price! 

Forget the hassle of packing up the tent or hooking up the caravan, just jump in your car and get away to your own little bolt hole in the country for some serious rest and relaxation!
