Cordwainer Cottage

Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car essential
  • No pets allowed

This stone building has been sympathetically converted into a welcoming and cosy self-catering cottage. The cottage is about 20 yards from the main house and has its own lawned garden, with a picnic table and views over the countryside. Plenty of car parking space is available.

Welcome to Cordwainer Cottage, a cosy stone built cottage on the outskirts of the pretty Staffordshire Moorlands village of Bagnall. Situated in the grounds of Stoney Villa Farm, a smallholding which was previously used for sheep farming, the cottage offers an ideal rural break.

The famous Staffordshire Potteries, Alton Towers, the Peak District National Park and Keele University's Astronomical Observatory (as well as Staffordshire University's Stoke campus) are all within easy reach of the cottage.

Because the cottage is away from major sources of light pollution, astronomers and others who enjoy stargazing will find the dark skies above the cottage an asset - a pair of binoculars, a camera on a tripod or even a telescope if you have one will reveal even more.

The cottage sleeps two and has been awarded three stars by the English Tourism Council.

The Heart of England/Peak District

Enjoy the thrills of Alton Towers, half an hour's drive away.

At Trentham, admire the restored Italian Gardens, take a lakeside walk or visit the Monkey Forest.

Browse antiques in Leek and explore the major market towns of Buxton and Ashbourne all within an hour's drive.

Walkers and rock climbers will be spoilt for choice with the famous Roaches just outside Leek and the Peak District just beyond that.

Visit the Gladstone Pottery Museum and the Hanley Museum with its extensive ceramics collection. Pottery factories nearby include Emma Bridgewater and Moorcroft.

Take in a show in Hanley's cultural quarter or at the New Vic theatre-in-the-round in Hartshill.


The cottage is situated on the outskirts of Bagnall, a pretty rural village with a lovely church dedicated to St Chad and a charming public house, the Staffordshire Arms. Both of these face the village square.

Enjoy a meal in one of the many good restaurants and pubs nearby.

Play golf, fish, sail or ride – all are available within a short drive.

Local steam railways include those at Rudyard Lake, Foxfield and Churnet Valley.

Buy locally-reared beef and home-produced pies and pastries at W James Butchers of Baddeley Green. Sample a local speciality - oatcakes and pikelets - freshly made in nearby Milton.
