Welcome to Secret Cloud House Holidays. If you are searching for a peaceful, relaxing break in beautiful countryside yet with an endless array of exhilarating activities on your doorstep - then look no further. We have just three yurts, creating a unique feeling of space and tranquillity, whether visiting with friends, family or on a romantic break.
Each yurt is designed to make you feel as cosy as possible, yet close to nature - and every aspect of your holiday has been carefully thought about to ensure any impact on the surrounding environment is kept to a minimum. Secret Cloud House Holidays were honoured to receive the Peak District Environmental Quality Mark within two weeks of opening during the first season in 2011
Each yurt has its own outdoor seating, composting toilet, log store and BBQ. You can sit and enjoy being so close to nature, the only disturbance being birdsong or a nosy Hebridean sheep.
Our Blackberry, Rosehip and Elderflower yurts have been thoughtfully decorated with subtle hints of the hedgerow colours and we surround our guests with little touches of luxury - Egyptian cotton bedding, gorgeously snug featherdown duvets and pillows, fluffy towels, toiletries handmade with love in Derbyshire, Staffordshire wool blankets to keep you snug and delicious local food.
Each yurt is fully equipped with everything you need for a memorable and relaxing stay, plus lots of little touches to make it extra special. Our yurts are designed for two adults with a handmade double bed, but also have a pull out bed and can accommodate an air bed allowing us to accommodate a family or four adults.
Inside the yurt you will find a handmade double bed, made up ready for your arrival with luxury cotton linen and feather-down duvets and pillows to keep you snug at night.
Drift into a world free from the distractions of television, laptops, computer games and spend quality time with your loved ones. Each yurt includes a wind up torch, a wind up radio and a selection of games and books.
