  • "This was the nicest get away we have ever had, everything was so clean and comfortable."

    The area is amazing, especially for our puppy as the garden was completely enclosed. We can’t wait to come back again.

  • "We arrived on Monday with our 2 small dogs, at 4."

    00 pm , the designated arrival time and were met by Daisey , who welcomed us and filled us in about the idea and the 2 year build project they personally performed to create such a lovely space. She showed us to our Pod Ash. She explained where everything was and left us to settle in, saying to contact her by phone should we want anything. The pod was as described , possibly slightly larger but with all mod cons provided. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in and the shower was certainly the best we have had away from home. Constant pressurised hot water a bonus. The sun shone almost every day, sadly the wind was a bit cold to sit outside but the pod was lovely enough to eat inside and facilities were perfectly fine for us to prepare all our meals . Just a mile away from JCB headquarters, we walked the puppies around their beautiful lake most days Denstone farm shop about 2 miles away is well worth a visit. We had a wonderfully relaxing break at ASH and would recommend the Walled Garden Glamping Pods to anybody, with each pod having sleeping arrangements for up to five. I am sure we will return with friends or family to share the experience. Thank you Walled Garden Glamping

  • "A lovely pod, set in a secret garden!"

    The pod is beautifully furnished and feels at lot bigger than it looks. We didn’t have the best of weather and were very thankful for the Dyson air heater, it warmed up the pod in minutes! The small honesty shop is nice touch and was well stocked with a variety of goodies. The area was peaceful and quiet, perfect for a chance to relax and unwind.

  • "We loved our stay at the Walled Garden pods."

    It was cosy, warm, comfortable and a lovely place to retreat to after a day's walking in the Peak District or rollercoastering at Alton Towers. Thank you.

About the location


Alton Towers 5 miles; Uttoxeter 5 miles; Ashbourne 10 miles.

A pretty little village, Rocester lies on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border, located on a triangle of land between the River Churnet and River Dove. The site of a Roman fort exists today and the village was also mentioned in the Domesday Book. Rocester is home to the famous JCB factory, and the company has landscaped the surrounding area to provide some wonderful walks with some interesting sculptures around the site and the nearby parkland. Most significant of these is The Fossor, which is made entirely of digger parts and is a powerful representation of JCB. Rocester is halfway along the Staffordshire Way which runs the length of Staffordshire and is also at the start of the Limestone Way which goes to Matlock. Close to Rocester is the lovely market town of Ashbourne, and just a short drive away is Alton Towers, with fun for all the family. Explore either the Staffordshire or Derbyshire part of the Peak District National Park with historic houses, market towns, moorland, rolling hills and valleys, all easily accessible from Rocester.

Please note: Minimum 3 night stays.
