Luxury yurt honeymoons and hen parties with a woodfired hot tub at Secret Cloud House Holidays in the Peak District


Honeymoon yurt beneath a starry sky

When I was planning my own honeymoon I looked for places and pictures that inspired me – I wanted to take one look and think, “that’s what I want to do” or “that’s where I want to be.”  That beautiful nighttime picture above of one of the honeymoon yurts at Secret Cloud House Holidays does that for me.

Secret Cloud House Holidays have a lovely selection of luxury yurts, including a brand new wooden yurt, situated in the rolling countryside of the Peak District.  Their yurts are available for both honeymoons and hen parties, and there’s even a woodfired hot tub with some of the loveliest views that a hot tub could have!

A Secret Cloud House Honeymoon

At Secret Cloud House Holidays there is a choice of three yurts and a bell tent that you can choose from as your romantic bolthole.  New for 2013 is Bilberry Lodge, a Scandinavian inspired wooden yurt, filled with rustic furniture, a log burning range cooker, and a cosy double bed.  It is also available to book all year round so perfect for a cosy winter honeymoon.

The yurts – Elderflower and Rosehip – have also been thoughtfully decorated with handmade beds, fluffy towels and a log burning stove.  Catherine who runs Secret Cloud House Holidays told me, “The simplicity and romance of the yurts creates an unforgettable atmosphere – you’re in the great outdoors and yet warm and snug under featherdown duvets with the flicker and warmth of the log burning stove.  Fairy lights and the flicker of candlelight add even more romance.”

Outside there are stunning views and at night the skies are dark, the perfect spot to enjoy their woodfired hot tub and watch the stars.  I personally can’t imagine many things more romantic than this!

I imagine some of us just want to spend our honeymoons relaxing and reliving our wedding day, but if you want to get out and about and see the local sights then there’s plenty to do nearby.

Catherine tells me, “In the local area we have walks from the yurt door, with many miles of footpaths linking us to the Churnet Valley, Manifold Valley and Peak District National Park.  We have historic markets towns a short drive from the yurts, with lots of independent shops – a rare treat on the modern high street.  We can also help the more adventurous arrange abseiling, rock climbing, hot air balloon rides.”

A Secret Cloud House Hen Party

For an outdoorsy camping style hen party with all the luxuries, you can book exclusive use of Secret Cloud House Holidays for you and your girls.  “Our attention to detail is always mentioned, from the handmade Derbyshire toiletries for all guests, Egyptian cotton linen, fresh flowers, and perhaps even some Ashbourne gingerbread or vintage cupcakes on arrival.”

Yurt hen party

Secret Cloud House Holidays is ideal for all kinds of hen parties – if you want to just chill out and relax in the beautiful countryside then you needn’t go further than opening the yurt door, lighting up a barbecue or jumping into the hot tub, but there’s also the option to book onto some of those outdoor activities mentioned above.
