  • Close to the beauty of Butterton Moor, this remote cottage is located off the beaten track with spectacular views

Property code: 40822

A delightful rural property nestled at the end of a lane surrounding Butterton Moor, offering spectacular vistas of the surrounding landscape, this is perfect for those wanting to get away from it all.

Stay in this rustic bolthole near Leek, an ideal spot for outdoor adventures and appreciating the views, before returning to the barn’s charming original features and home comforts that are available in abundance. Sleeping four guests and two dogs, you’ll be handily positioned for scenic walks and picnic lunches. The wider Peak District National Park promises activities such as kayaking, cycling and even caving, and there are pretty market towns to explore such as Leek, Ashbourne and Bakewell, all within 16.5 miles.

Wooden floors, timber beams and exposed stone create a homely vibe for relaxing, and the wood burner in the lounge is brilliantly cosy on chilly nights, powering the underfloor heating too for added warmth. Wake up to morning sunlight streaming in through the skylight as you navigate the mezzanine landing and staircase, a surprisingly contemporary feature that also leads to two impressive bedrooms and a lavish bathroom. The kitchen/diner has everything you need to rustle up tasty meals; think hearty suppers washed down with local ale and breakfast plates brimming with fresh eggs and bacon to kick-start your day. There’s bike storage outside and a BBQ for lazy afternoon treats, plus ample parking.

If you love the great outdoors, then you have come to the right place. Whatever your level of ability, the local area has gentle strolls, challenging hill climbs and exciting trails to tempt even the most hardened of adventurers. Butterton, 1 mile away, offers easy access to the Manifold Way, an exhilarating path that once served as a railway line and is now a celebrated walking route. For the youngsters, you can satisfy their need for speed with rides galore at Alton Towers (10.5 miles) or take it easy with a day trip to Peak Wildlife Park (5 miles) to greet the resident animals.

Hill View Barn is in an idyllic location off the beaten track, close proximity to walking and cycling trails with an excellent Asian restaurant just down the road. Paul ( the host ) lives on site and is always available if required. We had a lovely week wished we could have stayed longer and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

Really lovely barn, perfect if you want a remote location. There are some nice walks right from the door. Host is very accommodating. No heating in the property other than a fire downstairs. Bed not very comfortable and lacking in some soft touches to make it homely and cosy.

Beautiful location, the property is very spacious and with a luxury comfortable feel and amazing views.The property has a private water supply which doesnt taste the same as mains water, so we chose to drink bottled water. The track down to the property is very uneven and bumpy, not suitable for vehicles low to the ground.
