Delightful views from the bedroom. And a great area for accessing the Potteries and the beautiful Peak District. And It didn't matter if the weather was bad, there were still choices for things to do.

A well equipped cosy cottage in a stunning location. Friendly relaxed thoughtful owners. The dog bag containing local dog friendly walks was a brilliant addition when planning our walks. After a long journey the homemade flapjack and bread were a welcome treat.
