The Heart of England/Peak District
The spectacular Staffordshire Moorlands is set in The Peak District National Park.Some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. The terrain is mostly moorland with forests and lakes stretching out across rolling hills and crags and fragmented farmland. The Staffordshire Moorlands is within the 'White Peak' area, which stretches from Ashbourne to Castleton, including Manifold Valley, Dovedale and Ilam Park.
The area provides opportunities for fantastic outdoor adventure for everyone. From great climbing on The Roaches to cycling in the picturesque Manifold Valley and Tissington Trail, canoeing on Tittesworth Reservoir to walking in lovely Dovedale and horse hacking and trekking from Flash.
Visit the many places of interest the area has to offer; Eyam Hall and village, Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall and Park, Tissington Hall, Trentham Gardens, Alton Towers and many National Trust properties, Biddulph Grange Gardens, Haddon Hall.
Stoke on Trent, the home of the pottery industry, is 30 minutes drive; visit the Moorcroft Heritage visitor centre, Wedgewood Museum, and many other outlets.
The market town of Leek, some four miles from the property, lies at the heart of the Staffordshire Peak District. Steeped in history with links to William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement, the town has now reinvented itself as an antiques centre, with many outlets to browse. There is a choice of the major supermarkets within the town, although the centre has retained it's traditional character with a weekly market and cattle market.
The lovely Rudyard Lake has been a favourite beauty spot for visiting families for over 200 years. The lake is surrounded by lush woodland with beautiful walks that take you around the lake. The perfect spot for a picnic, some tranquil fishing, sailing, rowing boat hire, boat trips up the lake or a miniature steam train ride.
The Churnet Valley has a truly beautiful heritage steam railway deep in the heart of Staffordshire Moorlands, enjoy a steam train ride between Cheddleton and Froghall, incorporating the splendour of Consall Forge and the Churnet Valley. The station is only one mile from the property and has plenty parking facilities.
Also close by, approx. half a mile, is the RSPB Coombes Valley Reserve. There are many signed trails through the woodland, with a chance of seeing many varieties of garden birds, as well as the more elusive buzzards, barn owls, jays and spotted woodpeckers.
For those who prefer more relaxing pursuits, there are fishing ponds and clay pigeon shooting facilities within half a mile of the property.

We booked this cottage as a base for a two day trip to Alton Towers. We did not do the cottage justice with the time we spent there. The accommodation is stunning and to a very high standard. John … More
