Situated in 14 acres of English countryside, offering spectacular vistas throughout the cottage, this property is perfectly located for visiting some of the Peak Districts best attractions.

Located on the South West fringe of one of England's finest National Park's, the property offers the ideal position for exploring the finest that the Peak District has to offer. For rail enthusiasts, the nearby Churnet Valley steam railway is a great day trip, and for those green fingered guests, the nearby English gardens of Biddulph Grange and Consall Hall are a haven for flora and wildlife. Exploring the countryside is a must when staying at the cottage, and the extensive canal network and National Trust Houses are sure to impress.

Approached down a quiet country lane and along a private drive between two fish ponds, the beautiful cottage emerges from the countryside as a rural idyll. The property embraces open-plan living, making the most of the far reaching views of the undulating hills that are visible throughout the property. The open-plan reception area branches off from a hallway which has one step down and boasts exposed beams and oak floors, giving the property a real sense of character. The vaulted beam ceiling and woodburner are striking features in the property adding height and warmth to the open space. Leading off the hallway, the bedroom offers a king-size bed with TV and en-suite, complete with whirlpool bath, separate shower, WC and wash basin.

The conservatory at the rear of the property provides a panoramic vista of the surrounding landscape, with double doors leading out onto an enclosed patio that seamlessly connects the cottage with the outdoors and provides the perfect spot for whiling away an afternoon in the peaceful calm of the countryside.   A further large enclosed area leads from the patio down to the shed where there is gym equipment should you want to burn off some energy, or why not enjoy the fresh air and take a walk beyond the enclosed garden across the fields and along the stream.

Accommodation was great and hosts Terry & Norah were very welcoming. The location was perfect for both relaxing and unwinding, but also to visit local amenities in Leek including pubs, restaurants & walks.
