  • "Lovely comfortable and clean pod."

    Plenty of room for 5 of us. My first experience of glamping and would certainly do it again! Well equipped although no toaster as advertised. Outdoor bin is a bit small for all the pods. Lovely quiet site.

  • "The pods and location were lovely."

    It was a great base for going to Alton towers and surrounding area. It was cosy and great for a long weekend. Only downside was the customer service on trying to alter our initial booking due to work commitments. We asked if we could change to another pod which was available for our alternative dates. We attempted contact several times over 10 days, however we had no reply from the owner (via Sykes) over this time. We have no idea if this was an issue with Skyes or the owners. In the end we had to change to a later date for the same pod but it ended up costing us an extra £100. This customer service experience will probably put me off giving these pods a full recommendation to anyone.

  • "A fabulous break away in stunning surroundings."

    The peace and quiet is priceless. The pod was spotless and comfortable and had everything we needed. The shed was a welcome added bonus. We will be returning.

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.
