Secret Cloud House Holidays
Eco-friendly, stylish and cosily luxurious, it's not hard to see why Secret Cloud House Holidays has been awarded so many accolades, from Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence, press recommendations from Green Traveller and Cool Camping, to winner of Theo Paphitis' prestigious ‘Small Business Sunday' award.
The site comprises five opulent yurts, along with an on-site shepherd's hut that's appropriately known as Shepherd's Rest - a treatment room dedicated to providing a whole host of relaxing therapies, including candlelight massage. It's hard to think of anywhere more naturally relaxing to escape from the pressures of everyday life!
Each yurt, nestled in a wide open field that offers a stunning vista of the Staffordshire Moorlands and the Peak District, is furnished in its own unique style and personality, and features its own private eco-toilet.
Inside each yurt, you'll find wonderfully comfy beds dressed in Egyptian cotton, woollen blankets and featherdown duvets, along with fluffy towels and bathrobes, hand-made toiletries and a clear skylight above the bed that provides the cosiest possible setting for stargazing.
Prepare meals and keep toasty with the wood-burning stove oven - you'll find all the utensils, crockery and cutlery you need. A barbecue is provided if you're in the mood for al-fresco dining, and why not end your meal with a glass of bubbles in your yurt's very own wood-fired hot tub?
Breakfast on your first morning is made easy, with a welcome hamper packed with locally-sourced morning goodies, including sausages, bacon, bread, milk and eggs - a perfect feast to set you up for a day of exploring or relaxing, whichever you prefer!
Choose your ideal yurt from five individually furnished havens. Spacious Blackberry and Foxglove are ideal for families, sleeping up to 5 people on a double and three single beds, which can be folded away when not in use.
Perfect for romantics, Bilberry is a snug hideaway for two, with a comfy double bed and mini kitchen area.
Elderflower, tucked in a secluded field corner, features a king sized French-style bed that makes it perfect for stylishly romantic celebrations for two.
Rosehip is perfect for smaller groups, sleeping up to 4 people on a cosy double and two single beds.
Luxury living is fully understood at Secret Cloud, which is why the facilities are second to none for both style and comfort. Plenty of solar-powered hot water awaits you in lavish washrooms that feature full-length mirrors, hair straighteners and hairdryers. And if all that isn't enough, how about relaxing in the wood-fired sauna, with a menu of essential oils that means you can tailor your session to your exact mood?
Of course, Shepherd's Rest is the ultimate on-site sanctuary, with its complete menu of pampering treatments that will restore your natural sense of vitality and leave you feeling on top of the world once again - what could possibly be better?
With so much to do on site, from pampering treatments and stargazing to whipping up tempting al fresco feasts, you may find you don't want to return to the outside world just yet.
If, however, you feel like exploring the beauty of the local area, you'll find there's plenty to see and do that will keep even the most discerning traveller more than occupied. Perhaps start with a country picnic, or why not take the kids to Alton Towers, a mere 5 minutes away? There areplenty of local towns to visit, and the Peak District is just a few minutes drive away - a treasure-trove for lovers of the great outdoors!
So if you've ever wondered what it might be like to live in your very own private world of memorable luxury...come and spend some time at Secret Cloud and emerge from your break walking on air!

Tried and tested
"I wish I could give Secret Cloud 6 stars as they are faraway my favourite place I have ever stayed. Amazing value for money - free breakfast, a private hot tub, a sauna, firewood, access to a BBQ and wood stove, toiletries, towels, loads of candles... You get so much for the price and it is all beautifully arranged, clean, and pretty".
"My husband and I spent two nights here staying in Billberry. What an amazing place. Every attention to detail had been applied. Beautiful inside and out. The views were amazing and there was no feeling like being in your log fired wooden hot tub looking out onto the scenic landscape".
"Booked as a surprise for my boys aged 12 & 8, we arrived in the dark and what a delight! Felt as though we had stumbled into a fairy tale, thoroughly enjoyed, a magical little escape that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend! We made full use of the hot tub and fired up the sauna in the morning".
