Perfect Cosy Winter Break

Our timber Yurts sited at Rivendale are wooden hexagonal or octagonal Yurts and, like the Camping Pods are ideal in cold and wet weather. The timber Yurts are available in 3 sizes, but all include some form of wood-burning stove or range, with power, lighting and an electric heater as a backup. A perfect getaway for the whole family this Winter.

Camping pods are tent shaped, insulated timber huts with light, heaters and 16 amp power outlet and have proved to be comfortable during even the coldest weather! Keep cosy this Winter! They are the ideal replacement for your tent, particularly in the winter:- Camping Pods are already set up and ready to go when you arrive, completely weather proof so you’re no longer having to deal with muddy ground sheets and wet fabrics. Pods are lockable and, being built from solid timber, are much more secure.

We currently have 5 family camping pods and 5 standard camping pods, with 7 of these being dog friendly (dogs are an extra charge £2/night). The camping pods are in 2 different locations; we have 4 on our main pitching area and 6 in a more secluded area for those who want to enjoy the peace and quiet. At Rivendale, camping pods come in two sizes, our family camping pods can accommodate up to 4 adults (or 2 adults and 3 children) and our standard camping pods can sleep up to 3 adults (or 2 adults and 2 children). snowy podsSnow 2 snowy yurttimber yursmalltSnow 3pods snow2

Moment Of Silence

On Sunday November 8th here at Rivendale we held two minutes silence in remembrance of those who lost their lives fighting for their country. After four years of fighting, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the war was finally over. We will always remember them.

Remember Remember…

It’s that time again at Rivendale where we host our annual bonfire and fireworks event! On Saturday 7th November 2015 we will light our park up with fiery orange flames and dancing bright lights. We welcome everyone to come along and share this night with us and enjoy the free display whilst remaining toasty around the roaring bonfire. All our guests are welcome to the on-site bar for drinks and yummy home-cooked food. Come and join us on the park either in your own touring van, in a timber yurt with a cosy wood burner or camping pod insulated with sheep wool. Enjoy the stunning views and long walks or relax in the blissful peace and quiet, whatever you decide to do, we will ensure you have a well-earned break.

Speak the Season

Fallen leaves
Fallen leaves

Autumn has finally arrived! The crisp crunchy leaves beneath our boots dance colours of red and orange in the early frost of the morning. The clocks have just taken us back an hour to darker nights and cosy evenings by the crackling fire with a warm cup of coffee. Bright blue skies now blaze pinks and oranges as the sun continues to set sooner. Big fluffy winter coats and warm fuzzy scarves keep us toasty in the chilly winter air.
Soon enough we will all be planning our Christmas shopping trips and putting up our festive lights. The smell of cinnamon and roasted chestnuts will fill the air around us creating a truly magical atmosphere. Christmas songs will start to play and the smell of real Christmas trees will lure us into dressed up shops.
At Rivendale we have already started chopping up logs ready to burn in our bars lounge area and to keep the timber yurts cosy over the frosty period. It’s time to book your relaxing break with us in a timber yurt or camping pod! Enjoy a beautiful walk in the stunning Derbyshire hills and be welcomed back with a home-cooked meal in our bar by the cosy burning fire.
