Glam under the stars in surprising Staffordshire

It may be best known for it's thrilling theme parks, thriving potteries and beautiful gardens, but Staffordshire also offers a chance to indulge in award winning glamping too.

While it may have just five luxurious yurts, Secret Cloud House Holidays, with uninterrupted views across the Staffordshire  Moorlands and Peak District beyond, also offers some quirky treats for the luxury camper.

Each yurt now has its very own private wood fired hot tub, while the quirky wood fired sauna boasts an essential oil menu, from the healing aromas of eucalyptus to mentally uplifting grapefruit.

Pampered campers can also enjoy the 'Shepherds Rest'massage treatment room... the perfect way to unwind with treatments taking place by candlelight in front of a wood burning stove.

And for that extra special end of the day, each yurt also has a clear skylight above the bed- perfect for stargazing from under the feather downs!

Add into the mix, comfy beds made up with Egyptian cotton linen, feather-down duvets and wool blankets as well as each yurt having its own private Eco-Toilet, it's not hard to see why SecretClouds recently picked up the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Award for Glamping Provider of the Year.

Prices range from £140 to £160 per night, which includes the private wood-fired hot tub, use of the wood-fired sauna, and a welcome Staffordshire breakfast hamper. For more information on Secret Cloud Holidays, visit: http://www.secretcloudhouseholidays.co.uk
