Further details indoors

Camp Hill Cottage combines old-fashioned charm with modern facilities. It is light, spacious and peaceful.

The double aspect sitting and dining rooms both seat eight people. The sitting room, which has a wooden block floor and wood-burning stove, has views over the gardens where you may see rabbits and pheasants. The dining room has an original quarry tile floor and looks out over the garden to the rear of the cottage.

The fully-equipped kitchen is modern with gas hob and electric oven and plenty of cupboard space. We supply all the basics (salt, pepper, cooking oil etc) and just ask that you replace like with like if anything runs out.

Two bedrooms have queen size doubles and one is a twin. They all have wardrobe and chest of drawers as well as views over the gardens.

There is a shared bathroom which has a washbasin and bath with shower over, and a separate WC. A further toilet is located downstairs.

Further details outdoors

Camp Hill Cottage is situated in the grounds of Camp Hill which extend to about 45 acres. The main house was built in 1827 for Sarah Wedgwood, daughter of Josiah Wedgwood who founded the famous pottery company. Charles Darwin, who was Sarah's nephew and married his cousin Emma Wedgwood, was a regular visitor. We offer a tour of the house for those who are interested.

The gardens were originally landscaped by the previous owners between 1938 and 1983 and contain arguably the finest display of rhododendrons in the country. There are many paths and clearings to explore and it is a great place for children.

Although less than 2 miles from the village of Baldwins Gate you could be in the middle of nowhere. Everything you see is a part of Camp Hill and almost the only thing you can hear is the birds. These include woodpeckers, owls, rooks, house martins, tits, wrens and many more. At dusk there is a great display as they settle down to roost.

If you are feeling stressed or just want to get away from it all, Camp Hill is a fantastic place to unwind, relax and rediscover a sense of peace and wellbeing.

Location description from owner

The Staffordshire region

North Staffordshire is something of a hidden gem with both fabulous countryside and places of interest to visit.

Stoke-on-Trent with its Potteries is at the heart of the region, including a number of pottery museums and associated retail outlets. In addition there are several theatres, cinemas, a water park, dry ski slope, and shopping centres.

The Peak District and historic spa town of Buxton are less than an hour away by car. Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Alton Towers are only a little further. In the other direction there is Shrewsbury and mid Wales or Chester and the North Wales coast..

Baldwins Gate

Close to the cottage is the conservation area of Maer where Josiah Wedgwood lived and Charles & Emma Darwin were married.

Bridgemere Garden World is about 7 miles away and the Dorothy Clive Gardens are within 3 miles.

Slightly further afield is the Trentham Estate with its formal gardens (including barefoot walk), restaurants, shopping village, boat trips and monkey forest. The recently opened Potters Wheel, which has 42 eight-seat capsules, offers spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Keele golf course is within 10 mintues drive and there are various opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and paint balling.

In the nearby village of Baldwins Gate is a butcher and general store which sells excellent local meat and other produce.

There are several pubs in the area, most of which also serve food, often using locally sourced ingredients.

“Great place, quiet and idyllic, very clean”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

We stayed here as a party of 6 over new year and were very impressed with the cottage. We found it well equipped with everything we needed and it was really clean. There was plenty of space for 6 of us to move around in and the photos don't do this place justice! It was great value too- about half the price of other cottages we looked at for new year. The location was great too, quiet idyllic location with large gardens to explore and nearby wood to walk around. We also had a drive out to the Peak District for a walk one day too- about a 40minute drive away. Would definately recommend!!

“Amazing tranquil stay”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

Really lovely self catering cottage. The grounds are vast and full of interesting sculptures. A car is needed, but it's worth it for such a special tranquil place to be.

“Comfortable, spacious accommodation in a wonderful setting”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2012

We were warmly welcomed and felt at ease to just relax and enjoy our holiday. The property had everything we needed with plenty of space both indoors and out. It was located in a good position which enabled us to travel easily to all the places we wanted to visit in the surrounding area. It was very helpful to have wi-fi access as this enabled us to get any information we needed quickly. We are keen recyclers and were so pleased to find such an advanced recycling service available. It was also very interesting to see inside the main house and it would be great to come back in the future to see how it progresses.

“Summer Stay at Camp Hill”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2012

We had a great stay at Camp Hill. Cottage was well equipped and was in a lovely setting. We stayed as a base for going to Alton Towers which was a pleasant 45 minute drive and we managed to avoid traffic on every trip. The beds in particular were noteworthy as being comfortable and general good levels of facility. Very quiet and peaceful which was welcome. The provision of internet was a key factor for us and it really helped our holiday planning and general day-to-day life, i.e. having a Tesco home delivery on first day, planning trips etc etc. Good value also for a family break.

“Great Property - Excellent Hosts”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2012

With 4 adults and 2 children, we spent Christmas 2011 in this house and found it perfect for our needs. The property is well equipped and very comfortable. The hosts are on site and could not have been more helpful. We had other family members over for Christmas dinner and they were only too happy to help out with extra seating and plates etc. Great location - close to major centres, but still very peaceful on 40+ acres. I would recommend this property and will be returning on our next visit to the UK.

“Beautiful cottage, beautiful surroundings, great value for money”

Reviewed 18 Dec 2011

Cottage has everything you need, very comfortable. Make sure you have a walk through the forest, we were there in winter but the views were still magnificent. Owner Katharine and Martin were very welcoming.

“Good for all ages”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2011

We went with little kids plus teenager - Camp Hill itself amused us well with the rambling grounds and we were close to fun places such as Monkey Forest. Good value.

“Perfect cottage set in fantastic grounds”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2011

We were a group of friends finishing our PhD's in London and were looking to get away for a weekend. Camp Hill cottage was perfect for a group of 6 or more people, with ample space and comfortable bedrooms. It would easily suit a group of friends such as us, or a larger family. The site was shared with one more smaller cottage, but despite the sheer size of private grounds associated with the buildings means the space we had was terrific - literally enough for us to kick a rugby ball around in. This was coupled to numerous outhouses, little garden paths and a nice array of plants. The cottage itself had its' own little courtyard and seating are that was perfect for a BBQ and sitting outside. Having the complimentary wi-fi was also a huge plus for our group. From the cottage we were only a short drive away from a couple of nice pubs with good food, and less than hour away from some nice peak district walks.

“excellent great location, great house”

lovely location, quiet, clean beautiful gardens and will be back

“A great country retreat which is both peaceful but with great gardens & trails for the kids to explore.”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2011

We arrived late on a Friday afternoon to collect the keys to the cottage,the cottage was clean & tidy & the gardens just blew our mind. the kids spent quite a few hours exploring them. Martin & Katherine ( the owners) were very welcoming & made us feel very much at home, we held a family barbeque for 30 people & Martin & Katherine left some extra garden tables & chairs out for us to use which helped us so much. So to sum camp hill cottage up our family would say GREAT COTTAGE, GREAT LOCATION & GREAT PEOPLE Thanks Martin & Katherine
