Glamping Derbyshire and The Peak District
At Mulino Pods in Derbyshire on the edge of the Peak District we have three private and exclusive glamping pods located on a sheep farm with marvellous views over the valley towards Carsington Water. You can escape to the peace and quiet of our rural farm just 3 miles from Ashbourne and the cities of Derby, Nottingham and Sheffield are all within easy reach. Located on the edge of the Peak District there are plenty of walking and cycle routes on the doorstep.
Lavender Pod is a larger family glamping pod. Bluebell and Damson Pods are especially suited for couples and small families. Groups can enjoy exclusive hire of our glamping site, great for a family or friends Peak District gathering. Lavender and Damson Pods are pet friendly too.
Each of our three glamping pods overlooks the Carsington valley which drops off steeply to the hamlet of Atlow. Our pods are nestled in the hawthorn bushes creating privacy for each one. Your neighbours are the farm sheep which graze in the paddocks and fields around. We like to make things easier for our guests, so we have parking near the pods and on arrival collect your key from our ‘info’ room. Our Damson Pod and Lavender Pod are pet friendly and we welcome well behaved dogs on our farm. As we have sheep roaming around your glamping pods, we have to limit this to two in each pod per stay and must be kept on leads at all times. Dogs can be exercised in one of the nearby allocated fields.
