Bradnop

The characterful market town of Leek lies at the heart of the Staffordshire Peak District. Steeped in history with links to William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement. Leek is a lovely town to explore. Don't miss the fantastic weekly markets held for more than 800 years. The unspoilt town centre is a refreshing change from modern shopping malls, it offers plenty of individual retailers and has some unique speciality antique shops. You will be able to explore huge Victorian mills, formerly silk mills but now housing antique centres and traditional and contemporary art galleries.Leek also has many popular supermarkets: Waitrose, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Asda, Aldi and the Co-op,or get your order delivered.

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 which are quite gentle. The perfect spot for a picnic, some tranquil fishing, sailing, rowing boat hire, boat trips up the lake or a narrowgauge steam train ride. RSPB Coombes Valley Reserve is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK, in an SSSI. Just across the road from Ballfields Barn. Many birds come to our feeders and garden, greater spotted woodpeckers, nuthatches, chaffinches, wrens, robins, treecreepers, black birds, bull finches, jays and collared doves. And the ever present sparrowhawk, lovely but lethal. Buzzards mew overhead and beautiful barn owls fly silently over the fields. Foxes, badgers, hares, weasels and deer can be seen. You can walk through delightful oak woodland, follow fascinating nature trails and sit and muse by the babbling Coombes brook. Churnet Valley has a truly beautiful heritage railway, just 2 miles away, 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. Special events include 1940's weekend in summer, Halloween special and Santa and Steam throughout December.

Ballfields Barn is so situated that there is a vast selection of places to visit and sights to see and novelties to explore. Because this is an area of such natural beauty then a quiet restful holiday in rural tranquility is just as possible as a holiday of activity and exploration, and if Heritage is your thing then you will be delighted to discover that a host of interesting properties are all within easy driving distance.
