Welcome to Potter's Lodge yurt. Potter's Lodge is one of our three beautiful yurts at Peake's Retreats. Potter's Lodge was the second of our three yurts to be installed and finished ready for bookings and we have been welcoming guests to stay in this yurt since March 2018.
Is Glamping going to remain popular now that International Travel is becoming easier?
Are we going to see an end to the Glamping trend now that international travel is becoming easier?
This week the government announced that they are scrapping the traffic light system for international travel and that only countries on the red list will have restrictions in place for both UK and non-UK residents travelling to the UK.
So does that mean an end to the staycation boom we have been experiencing since the end of the first UK lockdown in July 2020?

We are very proud of our reviews and recommendations across the various platforms and we work very hard to maintain them, we like to think that we 'go out of our way' for our guests and whenever possible we will do whatever we can to make your stay the best. Of course there are limitations on this, and sometimes that is financial limitations.
We get asked a lot about our hot tubs and how the booking system works. So we thought now was a good time to go into a bit of detail about what you can expect to find onsite, what your accommodation will have access to and when/how you can use them...
Extras you can add to your booking at Peake's Retreats Glampsite
Here at Peake’s Retreats we want to make your stay the best it can possibly be.
This is why we have chosen only the very best and prettiest furnishings, beautiful bedding, and lovely throws. We fill our yurt field with bright and beautiful flowers every year, and even the hot tubs were chosen because of those they look.
We want to make sure everyone is entertained so we have the children’s play area in our enclosed Glamping field, allowing parents to relax and enjoy their getaway while their children are entertained.
Places to Visit in Staffordshire: Branston Water Park
I was born in Burton On Trent, Staffordshire, and lived the majority of my childhood in Rosliston, South Derbyshire. Which is only a 15 minute drive from Branston Water park. I can’t say that we visited all the time as we had Rosliston Forestry centre and the National Forest on our doorstep...
There are many benefits of massage; ranging from pain relief to improved
digestion and circulation, but one of the biggest for my clients is stress relief;
so many people get caught up in the endless rush of everyday life that they
often believe that they do not have the time to truly relax. These
people exist within a bubble of stress and it becomes normal. This
stress can have a detrimental physical...
The hospitality industry has been hugely affected by the coronavirus pandemic over the last few months, and in accordance with government guidelines we will remain closed for the month of June and expect to open to guests on...
Walking in Staffordshire/ Derbyshire near Peake’s Retreats glampsite
One of the great things about the location of both our glampsite and our Cyprus accommodation is that there are plenty of places to go walking nearby.
In Staffordshire at the glampsite we have lot’s of beautiful walks directly from our doorstep without the need to drive to get to them. Visit the Staffordshire county council website here to view a map of all of the footpaths
The local pub is just a 1.2 mile walk away and you can either walk over the fields or down the country lane (note there is no footpath). At a steady pace it should take you around 20 minutes to get there (a little longer if you have children with you) Just ask us to point you in the right direction.
Staying in the village there are some lovely routes which take you on a tour of the local area, it was during a random walking adventure a few years ago that I discovered Anslow had a woodland with over 28.5k trees. A lovely place to go and let your (well behaved) dog have a little lead free time. Our cockapoo Monty loves exploring here.

10 reasons to stay with us at our glampsite in Staffordshire
10 reasons to try out glamping in our Staffordshire yurts:
Some people absolutely love camping; the idea of getting back to basics, getting close to nature, going off grid, taking time away from all of the screens that surround us in our daily life, and re-connecting as a family, or with friends....
It was such a beautiful morning when I opened the curtains in the master bedroom at the villa this morning, and looked out from the balcony past the pool and down toward the unspoilt views of the inviting deep blue Mediterranean Sea.
It prompted a very spontaneous decision to drive up the coast and take a trip to Karpaz.
The Karpaz peninsula is known as the most unspoilt place of Northern Cyprus, and probably the entire island. Some of the peninsula is a protected natural heritage area, meaning there is little to no new building permitted. Allowing nature to run free in it’s natural environment and creating an area that is one of the least polluted in Europe...
March in Cyprus is amazing! It is a time of year when not many tourists visit the island and consequently a lot of places aren’t yet fully open. For example we have been to two beaches this week that did not have the sun beds out, they hadn’t done a beach clean up yet so there w...
