One of five cottages located on a working farm surrounded by rolling hills on the edge of the Peak District, this cottage is ideal for couples, friends and small families wanting a rural escape.
Discover the beautiful landscape surrounding Staffordshire’s ‘Little Switzerland’ in style, choosing this idyllic destination as your vantage point. With period beams in the bedrooms and far-reaching views of the countryside from every window, this converted barn is ideal for families seeking a quiet space to get back to nature and relax. There are two bedrooms sleeping four humans and two waggy-tailed companions, and the stunning shared gardens and a special doggy paddock is a bonus treat for stretching all four limbs before tucking into BBQ delights.
Wipe down muddy paws and shrug off your coats as you step through the stone exterior, laying down your anchor to unwind in front of the TV. Prepare meals in the excellent kitchen under the watchful eyes of Fido, gathering the pack to feast around the table. Weary from your adventures, both bedrooms await upstairs with their own en-suite facilities and a TV apiece. The shared on-site facilities are guaranteed to please whether you are toasting marshmallows on the fire pit after an afternoon BBQ or letting the little ones play in the indoor play barn. You’ll also have your own space to sit outdoors in the fresh air immediately outside the property but take care with curious pups as this isn’t enclosed.
The Staffordshire Moorlands offer adventure in abundance across the windswept wilderness, so you can leave no stick unfetched as you explore. Railway enthusiasts will appreciate the nostalgic steam railway nearby that puffs through the ethereal wooded Churnet Valley, and for those who prefer to explore on foot, there are more trails and bridle paths than you can shake a stick at. The stunning canal wharf at Froghall is a sheer delight, so be sure to pack a picnic ready for delicious lunches with a view.
