EcoPod Holidays offer a unique glamping experience situated in Knockerdown near Ashbourne, Derbyshire. We are located on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park.
Nestled in a secluded field with views of Carsington Water, EcoPods provide the ideal eco-glamping getaway for either couples or families. The cabins themselves provide a secluded, warm and comfortable space to stay where you can relax, cook a meal and toast yourself around the wood burning stove after an enjoyable day out. If you prefer eating out and socializing there is a pub restaurant with children’s play areas within a five minute walking distance.
We have 3 eco pods available, 2 of which sleep 4 and 1 sleeps 2 people. They’re superbly equipped inside and provide a brilliant base for exploring all the fabulous area has to offer.
Our Octopods sleep up to 4 people and have solar heating. Our design concept was to evolve further from the Yurt to create a warm liveable space which is insulated and powered by the sun.
The Soular shack is another of our multifunctional spaces for hire. It has a unique quirky style and adds interest to any event. It is fully solar powered and has an extending stage and sink facilities, a PA system, and there is a marquee available that attaches to it in case of bad weather (21 x 21 ft for bigger events, or 21 ft x 10 ½ ft as a band cover) . So far it has been used as a bar, a stage, a DJ hut, an information stand and a ticket booth at events ranging from National Trust Open Weekends to weddings – it’s up to you what you use it for!
Carsington Water itself has enough to keep you entertained all day with walking routes, a 9 mile cycle route, cycle hire, watersports centre and visitors centre with café, boutique shops and of course Ice Cream! For those of you who stay for longer periods there are many local attractions to visit such as the market towns of Ashbourne and Matlock, Alton Towers and Chatsworth House.
