We are based on a sheep farm in the Manifold Valley, Dovedale, Staffordshire Peak District . This is a birdwatching paradise, from ravens to redstarts. We have binoculars to borrow.
"Some of the best walking country in England" right on your doorstep. After an exhilarating hike, enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the many good local pubs.
Alton Towers 9 miles. Pony trekking, Bike trails (with bike hire), quiet leafy lanes, sailing at Carsington, and much more. Derby, Stoke and Buxton around 20 miles. Chatsworth, Haddon, Bakewell all just a short drive away.
Important - Please Note:
There are 9 STEPS up to the front door.
Sorry, but NO PETS, this is sheep country.
A wide oak-floored entrance hall leads to all other rooms. Three bedrooms to accommodate up to six people - one twin room, one double and one with full-sized bunk beds (very popular with children but quite adequate for adults). Snuggle into non-allergenic quality bedding and wake up to green fields and birdsong.
Relax and unwind in your large living room, with a proper fire, satellite TV and picture window to watch the world go by. Sunlight streams into the separate dining room with views to make your mouth water.
A well-equipped kitchen, with everything you would expect from a Four Star property, plus a sparkling bathroom with bath / shower, complete the picture.
Play games or lounge on the lawns that surround the cottage. There is a garage for your car or your bikes. A gate at the bottom of your drive stops unwanted guests (sheep) from wandering in.
SHORT BREAKS AVAILABLE. Please ask us for prices.
The cottage is owner managed and cleanliness is paramount. If you have any questions, please text / message Vanessa on 07967 200178.
