- Quiet and comfy shepherd's hut on a Peak District farm
- A 10-minute drive to Peak District National Park
- Fishing lakes and local pubs a 15-minute walk away
High Ashes Haven is part of a farm dating back to 1640. The staff might have had less comfortable berths back then, but in this traditional shepherd's hut you'll feel just as close to nature (the farm's pet sheep may wander by, but you won't have to do any tending these days, just wave hi as they amble past).
The hut is a warm and brightly decorated space accommodating a comfy king-size bed, with linen, towels and a goose feather and down duvet all provided. Right next door is your own (shepherd's) bathroom with hot shower, toilet and sink.
For eats, cook up a feast in the well-equipped kitchen area or sling a pizza into the woodfired oven. Logs are supplied for the firepit too so you can toast yourselves as you dine alfresco: peak relaxation.
It's thirsty work of course, all that gazing at the scenery... Most handily, the hostelries of Ashover dish up local ales (and home-cooked dinners should you tire of prepping your own meals), a 15-minute walk or a five-minute drive away.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.
Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

You can join up with the 34-mile Chesterfield Round Walk right from the site, a circular tour of southern Peaks countryside that's split into sections with parking and bus links if you want to take it easy. A 10-minute drive will take you to the Peak District National Park, crisscrossed with walking and cycling trails for all levels of fitness or heroism. Even if you only make it down to Ashover for a pie and a pint, you'll see some classic countryside around here, so bring your camera along wherever you may roam.
Fishing enthusiasts can follow the stream out of the farm for a mile to Press Manor Lakes, where there's coarse and fly fishing for trout and carp as well as fishing lessons for the curious or those who want to hone their angling technique.
Family days out nearby include Gulliver's Kingdom (15 minutes' drive away near Matlock), a dinosaur-studded theme park with log flumes and courage-testing rollercoasters. It's also worth taking the cable car from Matlock up to the Heights of Abraham, a hilltop park where you can venture into massive underground caverns or climb and swing in adventure playgrounds.
Within a half-hour drive, you can see how the other half lives (or lived) at the historic estates of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Bolsover Castle. If you fancy galloping across the hills like country squires meanwhile, there's horse riding and pony trekking at Matlock Farm Park (10 minutes from the site).
