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.

This is a nice cottage in a very peaceful location with lovely views. The front patio and back garden are both fully enclosed - great for dogs. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, however we found the living room a little cramped. Great log-burner which was useful as the weather wasn't good, and we also had central heating. The owner was verRead morey friendly and approachable and on-hand should there have been any problems. Hide

I went with my partner and my dog. The cottage was clean and cosy, but had enough room for the large dog crate in the living room. It had an enclosed front and rear garden so that my dog was kept safe and the other animals on the farm wouldn't be bothered! The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked as it should. The location is peaceful anRead mored the only thing that can be heard is the animals. A short drive from scenic dog walks. Hide
