Perfect for a short but romantic break with your partner, this single-storey cottage offers something for everyone. You will find it in the heart of a smallholding, with horses and sheep grazing at your doorstep, boasting majestic views over the Staffordshire Moorlands. From here, you and two furry friends can enjoy the many walking and cycling routes that the area is famous for, or simply relax and recharge your batteries back at the cottage beside the glow of the wood burner.
With tiled flooring and vaulted ceilings throughout presenting beautiful exposed beams, the property exudes comfort. Each room is light and spacious, with views from every window enjoying the surrounding farmland. Enjoy lazy breakfasts at the farmhouse table, which you will find in the bright and contemporary kitchen/diner, while the evenings here are made for unwinding with a BBQ dinner on the enclosed terrace, overlooking the stables and paddocks. You’ll also find a private enclosed rear garden beside the lambs and sheep in the neighbouring fields and though the cottage lies beside the owner’s farmhouse, privacy is assured for guests.
The sleepy village of Grindon has a long history, named in the Domesday Book as ‘Grendon’, meaning green hill. From here, enjoy a leisurely walk around the rest of the Manifold Valley, or to the neighbouring Hamps Valley just 3.5 miles away. Head 17 miles to Poole’s Cavern and journey into the depths of the vast limestone caves or explore the country park woodlands above ground. Thrill-seekers will be delighted to find that Alton Towers is just an 8-mile drive from the property.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
