The Campsite

With its own small herd of deer, the site offers fully serviced pitches with hardstandings and a pub just a short walk. The site is ADULT only and DOG FREE. Within easy reach of the Peak District National Park and only a short drive to the market town of Ashbourne and Alton Towers.

Things To Do

Your holiday can be anything you want it to be; adventurous activity with walking, cycling, climbing and water sports or a relaxing break enjoying the shops and cafes in the pretty nearby market town of Ashbourne – the options are endless!
We had the most magical stay at No Deer. Jane was a wonderful host, when we arrived she greeted us to run through everything and communication was great from start to finish. We had a lovely surprise when entering the pod, a bottle of bubbly and some chocolates - they didn’t last too long! The pods are immaculate, cosy and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hot tub was just what was needed after a long day hiking, true bliss getting lost in natures sounds, we felt like we were the only people in the Peak District at times. Perfect location to travel around the peaks and only a 5 minute walk to the local pub. If you want to escape and soak up the countryside this is the place to do it.

We had a lovely New Years stay at Oh Deer! Jane was an amazing host and made us feel very welcome when we arrived, the pod was spotless, cosy and the small touches by Jane made our stay even better. There’s a local pub just a few minutes walk away and a nice farm shop we visited a couple of times. We would recommend Oh Deer to anyone who wants a relaxing trip in the countryside.

We have had the most AMAZING few days at Oh Deer for our anniversary. Everything was perfect, from the amazing hot tub, to the spotlessly clean pod, to the wonderful Jane. She is extremely friendly, helpful and goes above and beyond to ensure that your stay is great. I honestly could not recommend this place enough- it is in the most amazing, peaceful location and I would not hesitate to return again - we have already discussed returning next year!!

Perfect, relaxing stay. Me and my husband booked Oh Deer as a mini-moon for the first few days after our wedding. Everything about our stay was perfect. The pod was spotless and so well equipped. The owner Jane came to greet us which was a really nice touch, along with the bottle of Prosecco left for us! Jane has thought of everything, you can tell a lot of time and attention has been put into the creation of these pods. The area is so peaceful, waking up to the deer every morning was so lovely. The village pub is a short walk down the road and is so welcoming, serving really delicious pub grub. We also visited the Shed, again a short walk down the road for our morning eggs and sausages. We can't recommend this place enough!

We had a wonderful four-night stay at 'No Deer'! The pod was immaculate, cosy, and just perfect. The peaceful countryside setting was lovely. We enjoyed soaking in the hot tub in the evenings and spotting the deer. Jane was so friendly and always ready to help. We couldn't have asked for a better stay!

Oh Deer was incredible. Absolutely immaculate. As we arrived we were welcomed by the lovely Jane. As we were coming to oh dear for our mini moon, I’d brought some of my wedding flowers with me. Jane went out of her way to go get me a vase to display them in the pod. The pod is designed so well and meets all of your needs. If you were self catering there would be no reason to actually have to leave the pod. There were really lovely touches such as, the welcome book with ideas of what to do during your stay, books which we used one of to go on a trail.. it was so fun! A box with games in so we had lil card night with pizza, there was a Prosecco on arrival and choc buttons which were delicious. The hot tub was really easy to follow and use, this was also cleaned on our second day and refilled for us. The view is great and the surroundings are so quiet and with the view of the deers it was just bliss. We spent 4 nights in the pod and we definitely wanted to stay longer and there was plenty more for us to go and do, we have already said we will definitely stay there again!

Absolutely Amazing!!! We had a wonderful 3 night stay at No Deer. Everything there was as described, pod was spacious, spotless and well equipped. We met the owner Jane on arrival who was so lovely, gave us some useful advice on the local area. We ate at the Crown Inn a couple of times, just a very short walk up the road, the food was exceptional. The hot tub was great, didn’t take long to get warm, it was well used and we were grateful of it after some long bike rides

We had such a lovely stay here. Hosts were really helpful. Accommodation was as described, everything you needed for a short break, all perfect. Chocolate and Prosecco was a lovely gesture, as well as the cleaning pack and toiletries. The setting was also very peaceful. Would definitely recommend.

We had a fantastic stay at No Deer - everything we could ask for plus more! Clean, well equipped property in a peaceful location with our deer neighbours. Every little detail had been thought of and provided for us, and we received a very friendly welcome. Would highly recommend. We had a lovely "mini-moon" - thank you!

We had an amazing stay at Oh Deer! Everything was to a super high standard, really clean and had everything we wanted. The hot tub was lovely - although it took approx. 2 hours to heat up as it was a wood burning one, this was no problem for us, and it was easy to use! Jane the owner was lovely, came to greet us at the start and made us feel very welcome. We have already recommended to a few friends to come with their partners.

Our first stay at No Deer, but it certainly won’t be the last! Everything was perfect from start to finish. The host came down to the pod shortly after we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. She also told us that a new baby deer had been born that day, so we were thrilled when we managed to catch sight of it on our last day! The welcome pack was full of useful information and answered any possible question we had. We lit the hot tub shortly after arriving and this was ready for a relaxing dip before bed. All of the little extras (bathrobes, slippers, hairdryer) were brilliant too, as this saved us taking our own. Would happily recommend this place to anybody, the only bad part of the holiday was when we had to leave! perfect perfect perfect!!

Stayed here for 5 nights and could not be more pleased with my stay! The size of the pod was perfect for 2 people and the hot tub was lovely. Jane is absolutely wonderful and was always on hand to help when needed. Definitely would recommend this without a shadow of a doubt!

What an amazing place! The pods are perfect with all conveniences and needs anticipated: kitchenette, tv, Wi-Fi, shower +WC, bed, linen + towels and a hot tub to boot. The hosts are very attentive and checked in to make sure we were feeling looked after. The site is very peaceful and scenic with the deer watching from their nearby enclosure. Perfect place from which to explore nearby Buxton, Bakewell, Dovedale and Cromford. Thank you!

"This was our very first CL site in about 40 Years of caravanning. On arriving at the campsite there is a lovely gated entrance with touch keypad, you can choose which pitch you would like, they are all very level and super pitches. There are lovely views of the deer in the field from all pitches. Early morning you have the lovely birds singing and beautiful sunsets and sunrises. There is no toilet block but the site has a very immaculate service point for emptying toilet and dustbins for your rubbish. There is no children or dogs allowed. Also they have two lovely pods for a stay in with hot tubs, these were beautiful and very well kept as I had a sneaky look through the window . We will definitely return to the site and thank you Jane for making us welcome."

"Would not change a thing about this beautiful site. Helpful and friendly owner who keeps the site impeccable. So handy for places to visit or to just pop down to the local pub, which is also an excellent eatery. Staying on site and watching the deer was so relaxing too. Will definitely return."

"We bought our motorhome 4 months ago and due to Covid this is the first time we've been away in her. We deliberately wanted a small site, so we could play around with the van and get used to her. This site did not disappoint, lovely and quiet, just what we were after. Five minute walk to a pub, but we stayed onsite to chill and drink at the van. We had a hardstanding pitch, which was level, with electric, water and grey waste. Onsite there was a toilet emptying facility, as well as rubbish disposal and recycling. We met and had a good natter with the the owner Jane, who was lovely. Really lovely small site, especially ideal for those of you who are visiting Alton Towers as it's about 10 minutes drive away. Would most definitely recommend!"

"stayed here for 11 nights as was working in the area. Was prefect. Really friendly welcome and throughout stay. Fully serviced pitches which makes your stay even easier! and toilet waste very close. Rubbish bins and recycling available. Pub 2min walk up the hill which does decent food. Can't fault this site at all... ...will be staying again when back in the area. Thank you"

"Lovely little site with beautiful peaceful surrounding close to local amenities and a short drive to alton towers. Jane was so helpful, friendly and courteous. Will definitely be back. A great place to camp should you only require minimal facilities"

"We really liked Manor Grounds Campsite. It’s well maintained (with good-sized pitches), private and on the edge of a lovely village, Marston Montgomery. There’s a very nice pub, The Crown, about 5 minutes walk away. During our weekend we visited the Shugborough Estate and Bolsover castle, which were easy to get to from Manor Grounds. We wouldn’t hesitate to visit again. Highly recommended."

This is an absolutely beautiful place-everything was perfect and quality of everything and attention to detail is second to none. The pod has everything you need with comfy bed and high quality shower. We loved the outside area and hot tub was fab! Once heated the water retained its heat until the next day! The hosts are lovely people and came down to check we were ok and settled in ok. If there is anything you need they would be quickly on hand to help. They even left complimentary Cava and chocolate to welcome us! The Deer on sight also came to say hello and were lovely to see. The local pub which is about a max 5 minute walk was an added bonus with beautiful food ( amazing Sunday lunch) and lovely, friendly staff! We will certainly be back soon. Thank you Claire and Gary

Absolutely loved our 3 night stay at No Deer. From the second we arrived we knew we were going to enjoy it. The pod itself is immaculate and finished to a very high standard. Great kitchen facilities, very comfy bed and the bathroom fittings are all superb. The hot tub was amazing and was used for many hours and being able to sit out for tea with the deer watching was special. The host Jane was very attentive and the chocolates and fizz left on arrival added to that. There is a pub 5 mins walk away. We went for a walk to Rocster where there was a lovely farm shop and Ashbourne and Carsington Water is a short drive away for town shops and water sports. This place is a must stay if your in the peak District

My partner and I learned we were the first guests at the new Yes Deer pod and it was an absolute pleasure! The placement of the pods next to the deer was fantastic in addition to the wonderful farm and wildlife in the village. The pod itself was very modern and cosy and a very luxurious snug hot tub perfect for a romantic couple. The welcome guide that the hosts had prepared was very very useful including some amazing photography from our host Jane herself! Another aspect we absolutely cannot fault was the kindness and hospitality from Jane herself, very helpful and welcoming which was a lovely extra touch plus the bubbly and the chocolate!
