Property code: PK817

Situated in 14 acres of English countryside, offering spectacular vistas throughout the cottage, this property is perfectly located for visiting some of the Peak Districts best attractions.

This idyllically situated one-bedroom cottage is the perfect base for a break with your four-pawed friends. Ideal for couples seeking a quiet break, up to two doggies are welcome to this rural holiday let. Fourteen acres of unspoilt countryside surround the property, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, so it’s possible your pets will benefit from a break here more than you! The scent of nature close at hand is bound to have your canine pals excited for walkies.

After you’ve enjoyed the great outdoors, there’s nowhere better to curl up than in the cosy lounge, where there’s a wood burner, squashy sofas and a rug for dozy dogs to stretch out on. The open-plan living area gives easy access from the lounge to the kitchen and dining area. You’ll find everything you could need in the well-equipped kitchen, and the king-size bedroom is a wonderful retreat after a busy day, furnished in a neutral country cottage style. If the great outdoors isn’t exercise enough, you can indulge in a gym session on-site. For quieter moments, why not retire to the patio to take in rural views from the comfort of an awaiting bench. Alternatively, enjoy the scenery from the conservatory, where you and your pets can bask in the sunshine, comfortably out of the elements.

Beyond the attractions of fresh air, great country walks and on-site coarse fishing exclusively for guests, are some wonderful visitor attractions, including the Churnet Valley steam railway (9 miles), the National Trust gardens of Biddulph Grange (10 miles), and Consall Gardens (7 miles). The market town of Leek is just under 5 miles away. Known as the ‘Queen of the Moorlands’, Leek has a variety of interesting shops and fantastic local produce to keep your kitchen cupboards well-stocked.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Cottage was perfectly tranquil, peaceful and ideal for our needs. Surrounding countryside was picturesque and the country walks were breathtaking. To come back to the cottage and use the whirlpool bath just ended the day perfectly.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet country setting, overlooking rolling hills with a multitude of bird life feeding at the edge of the patio. Terry has dug out his own fishing lake and stocked it with beautifully conditioned fish, carp to 18lbs, roach, rudd and even golden orfe.
