North of Britain 

Longvalley Yurts at Knotlow Farm In the centre of the world's first designated National Park, halfway between Buxton and Bakewell lies Knotlow Farm. 

Offering traditional English rural life, this traditional farm-cum-campsite is situated in the scenic Derbyshire countryside. With elegant, spacious yurts constructed of timber and modeled off the authentic Turkmen model five people can sleep comfortably inside one yurt on a selection of futons and blow-up mattresses. 

Specifically designed to withstand the harsh winters of Central Asia steppe, these yurts are more than prepared for the unreliable British weather. 
Not only is there breathtaking views to be soaked up, but there is also an abundance of activities available from potholing to canoeing. For fans of wild swimming, plunge into Panniers Pool at The Three Shires near Flash, England's highest village. 

For those who would enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere why not head northward towards Hope Valley and recuperate in a quaint tearoom before exploring the nearby subterranean cave network of Speedwell Cavern.
