The Old Nurses Cottage is situated in the Staffordshire Moorlands village of Kingsley, within a few miles of Alton Towers, the Peak District and the Potteries. Walks into the Churnet Valley and beyond start at the doorstep!
This charming traditional cottage has recently been renovated to a very high standard, keeping all the original features such as the inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and exposed oak beams. The living room has a large flat screen HD TV, freeview box & Blu-ray player. I have plenty of DVD's, kids toys and even a PlayStation 2 which can be lent out. It benefits from off road parking, its own garden and terraced seating area complete with BBQ.
The cottage is suitable for both couples seeking a quite weekend away through to small families or groups of friends looking to make the most of the local attractions including Alton Towers, the Potteries and Water World. The cottage has a double bedroom with additional single bed for family use, the lounge is also equipped with a sprung sofa bed and comfortably sleeps up to 5.

About this location
The Staffordshire region
The Churnet Valley is a treasured part of the Staffordshire Moorlands which is rich in history and natural beauty. It is also a living landscape which provides jobs, services and homes for local communities and offers much for visitors to enjoy.
One of the main attractions other than Alton Towers is the famous Churnet Valley Railway. It;s a picturesque heritage Steam Railway that runs through the Staffordshire's Little Switzerland, the Churnet Valley. It meanders alongside the Caldon Canal and the River Churnet for a delightful nostalgic ten and a half mile return journey. Kingsley & Froghall Station has ample parking and disabled access and is home to the award winning traditional Tea Room and the railways Souvenir Shop both of which are open on running days. Consall Station has no public road access making it very quiet and isolated in its situation beside the weir on River Churnet where the canal splits from the river. Nearby are the Lime Kilns and the Black Lion Public House. At Cheddleton Station you can visit the Railway's Engine Sheds and its small Railway Artifacts Museum. Trains run Sundays Easter to September, Saturdays June, July & August and Wednesdays in July and August plus all Bank Holiday Mondays.
Kingsley is a small village in the Staffordshire Moorlands near to Cheadle, and situated on the A52 from Stoke on Trent to Ashbourne. Nowadays the village is a quiet rural village but 100 years ago the Village was the centre of the Churnet Valley Iron Mining Industry. Although Kingsley only has one pub and a butchers all your convenience needs can be found just 3 minutes down the road in the lovely little town of Cheadle. Which has and an Asda and Morrisons store, plenty of pubs, take away restaurants and even has a leisure centre with swimming baths.
Also only a 20 minutes' drive away is Stoke on Trent which has been undergoing some major changes over the past few years and now has some fantastic shopping and entertainment facilities such as Trentham Gardens, Water World, Stoke Ski centre, Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, cinemas, outlet shopping at Festival Park, the potteries shopping centre + many more attractions.

"Gorgeous little cottage!"
We booked for a long weekend to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The cottage is just perfect. You enter the front door via a little cobbled front with an old wrought… More

"Charming Base with all our basic needs."
I was a little nervous about going here because it had one major negative review but please do not be put off by it at all, because we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at The Old Nurses Cottage.
We were greeted by Simon the owner who lives in the adjoining home with his family.
Friendly and professional, he walked us through all our basic necessary information and left us to it. You never felt smothered by his presence or that he was too far away if you needed anything. A nice balance in our opinion.
The log fire was lovely and the space was perfect and safe for our little 2yr old to toddle about.
We visited near by Alton Towers and travelled up to Buxton too, making a detour to the recommended Bakewell on our way home. (Recommended by Simon himself)
You can see he is constantly improving the cottage and told us of future plans which would make it even more enjoyable for guests. So we are looking forward to going again in the future.
Overall an absolute joy.
Go for it!

"A very pleasant stay a stone's throw from peak district."
This little rural cottage is a well-equipped and full of character. Each room is well presented and the bedroom is just stunning. We spent a beautiful Christmas weekend here and enjoyed the local walks. The peak district is a short car journey away and there are plenty of lovely little pubs to visit along the way.
Great value for money, but car is advised..
