The carefully-restored cottage features cathedral ceilings, exposed timber and stone and features an upside-down design to capture the views of the surrounding countryside.

The ground floor holds four bedrooms with en-suite, including two twin rooms, one double and one king-size double. The first floor will attract every member of the group or family with its vaulted ceilings and delightful décor.

The first floor houses the modern kitchen, utility with WC, spacious dining room and comfortable sitting room with woodburning stove. Relax in the sitting room with the 50” plasma screen TV, video, CD player and iPod dock. Kids can have their own party in the additional sitting room with a double bed.

Meadow Place is welcoming in any season, courtesy of the central heating, and guest can also count on laundry facilities, amenities for young children, ample off-road parking and WiFi.

Sunny days are perfect for the garden and furnished patio, which includes a BBQ and allows for family meals while the kids and dogs run free.




Accommodation was absolutely stunning, the photographs do not do it justice. The owner came & welcomed us too. Thoroughly recommend this cottage & village.

Miss Thurston

Excellent property in a good location for walking and visiting the surrounding area.

Mr Lewis

No complaints at all about Meadow Place, it is a fantastic holiday cottage in a great location.

Mr Gilbert

The proportions of the cottage and its location in a good village with pubs and shop within walking distance. As my group are walkers, we like that there are walks from the cottage and also that it is close to the Peak District and The Roaches. We particularly liked the superb lounge with wood burner, 4 bedrooms being en-suite, and the spacious hallway. Had an attentive owner, who seems to care that we enjoyed our holiday.

Mr Holmes

Meadow Place! A superb holiday 'cottage' (rather, a large beautifully converted barn!) where it would not have mattered to be snowed in, or cut off from the world! With a roaring fire, 50inch TV and lots of rooms to lose excited toddlers, we certainly enjoyed a happy family get-together! The outings to Sudbury Hall, Ilam Park and Ashbourne endeared the area to us - we certainly need to come back to
see more!

Mr Allinson

This was an excellent property for a crowd of friends. The furnishings, bed-linen, etc. Were of a very high quality without detracting from the 'home from home' feel.

Ms Boak

A very spacious and well appointed property for our party of 8, and with ample parking for our 4 cars. In a very pleasant village with a good eating place close by.

Mr Rushton

A lovely converted barn with fabulous living areas. It was well appointed and equipped. Parking was excellent in a private courtyard/garden and there were lots of nice touches. I am always happy if there are nice wine glasses in the cupboard!

Mrs Packer

The interior design of this property has been done brilliantly. The property was very well set out and had more than enough space for our party of 9. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Mr Robinson

Loved the house, the location and the surrounding areas. The house was all enclosed and very safe.

Mrs Williamson

Meadow Place was amazing. Excellent place to celebrate a family birthday. A super cottage. All the family really enjoyed it. Great place to spend special times with the family.

Mrs Daniel

The standard of the property was outstanding - especially at the price. We felt the photos on the website did not do the property justice.

Mr Massie

It was a fantastically well appointed cottage in a great location. The owners made us welcome from day one and the local area is amazing.

Mrs Fentum

The barn was very well equipped, spacious and clean. It's in a lovely village with 3 local pubs, and convenient for walks or sight seeing further afield. Would definitely recommend it.

Mrs Archer

Meadow Place was spacious and well equipped.

Mr Ellis

A stunning house and location. Had a fantastic stay.

Mr Bourne

There was loads of space; the lounge and dining room were huge and there was a lovely private garden with lots of space for kids to play. A fantastic house, would highly recommend, we had a great time staying here.

Mrs Brown

A spacious house in a central location

There were plenty of bedrooms (all with bathrooms) for the whole family which meant we had our own spaces. The living area was very spacious. The kitchen was not especially well equipped but as we ate out most of the time this did not bother us much. The garden would be good for eating out though we didn't use it. There is loads to do in the area and some great places to eat especially the Manifold Inn.

My 50th

This really is an excellent place to stay. The accomodation was huge! The highlight is the lounge where my friends and I spent many hours with the log fire roaring. I would recommend this place to everyone.
The landlady was also a delight, very nice and helpful.
We will be returning.

Wonderful property

This was a wonderful property ideal for what we wanted it for which was a pre-Christmas family gathering. It was spacious, well kept, and equipped with everything we needed. I particularly liked the huge lounge and open fire. The owners were friendly and helpful. There was a local shop and pub and it was close enough to everything the Peak District has to offer. We had a lovely weekend.

60th Birthday Celebration Week

We hired Meadow Place in December for a week long house party for family and friends, and were not disappointed.
The house is an ideal setting for a party, with its galleried dining area and chandelier, and is extremely well equipped to cater for entertaining. Various guests complete with dogs arrived and departed at different times of the week, and all were impressed. The village has 3 pubs, with 2 serving food, and there are great walks to be found nearby. Owners on hand, but very unobtrusive. Already planning for next event. Would highly recommend.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

An all round first class house and location.

Indoor facilities first class. Bags of space without ten of us "living on top of each other" Good pub doing huge meals at good prices only walking distance away. The week we were at Ipstones was not good but the log fire with no restrictions on use of logs was a first class bonus.
No shortage of facilities in the catering - loads of cooking utensils and glasses etc. All ion all a very pleasurable and memorable stay.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

excellent place

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here ,all facilities were excellent,beds comfy,one downside was the amount of spiders in the bedroom with the french doors I counted and killed 25 in two weeks ,they where big ones!. i was a bit disappointed with the view from the living room I could only see rooftops or someones garden.

Outstanding accommodation in a lovely village

This is an excellent holiday home. First impression "wow" - it's huge and the barn conversion has been done tastefully. It is clean and well equipped
We spent a week there from 31 May to 7 June and really enjoyed our time in the area, there are so many beautiful walks and nice pubs! We particularly enjoyed coffee and chatting to local people at Cafe Connect in the Memorial Hall.


Excellent weekend away!!

what a fabulous place to stay!! We had a fantastic weekend here. What can I say. Great accommodation, well equipped, wifi for the teenagers and a roaring open fire. Great village pubs and walks as well. Could not fault it!!

Paula R

Fantastic Holiday Cottage

I have seen a lot of people saying this property is ideal for 'older travellers'. We spent a long weekend there in December with a group ranging from early 20's to 50's and I would say this property is ideal for anyone, regardless of age.

Clean, well presented, and far more spacious than we had hoped for, we were all a little blown away by the size of the property upon arrival, even with a group of 10 space was never an issue. The unlimited logs and coal for the open fire were fantastic, and the location is peaceful but secluded so there is no concern that you may be annoying the neighbours (within reason, of course).

The owner popped round shortly after we arrived to run through things we may not be aware of, such as how to control the heating, where to find more wood for the fire, and where the bins were located if we filled the ones in the property. Other than that we were very much left to ourselves while we were there which was great.

Absolutely no complaints, with a well stocked shop and multiple pubs in the village, and many scenic walks in the nearby area Meadow Place really is a fantastic and well priced property if you are looking to get away to the countryside for a while, I would definitely recommend it.


A great place to stay

We have just returned from a long weekend at this property. We were a party of 8 (extended family) and a number of canine guests too. The property was great, with 4 x bedrooms on the ground floor and all en-suite so each couple had their own space, then spacious comfortable communal areas upstairs. There is plenty of off road parking too.
The property is really well equipped and in a great location with 3 pubs (2 that serve food) and a village shop all within a short walk. I really can highly recommend staying here.


Absolutely excellent

The 'cottage', a converted barn, in the lovely village of Ipstones was a great place to stay! The whole property was well equipped with plenty of space for our party of 9. All of the 5 bedrooms had plenty of space with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, who was happy to help and very welcoming.

We couldn't have asked for any more on the break and I recommend this property to any party of a similar size!


Amazing holiday home

Me and a 8 other friends decided to go on a week holiday, we wanted a place with things to do and places to go, and by no means were we disappointed. Meadow Place was amazing, considering we were a large group of 18 year olds, it was great that the owners were trusting, on the first day they came to see if we had settled in okay and if there were any problems, which there were non.

The building and garden were great, very spacious, good sized rooms, and great facilities. The living room was spacious and warming, and the house was just a nice size, at no point did anybody feel as though we were falling over each other.

due to it being self catering, there was a small corner shop in town, with basic supplies, but a 5 minute drive away in Cheadleton there was a Morrisons and an Asda.

Moreover it was only a 15 minute car journey from Alton Towers, which was a great day out.

Overall I was extremely happy with the house, a great bargin, well placed, overall I would recommend to any family and friends. Hope to come back soon.

Matt H

Stunning holiday home!

Have just returned from a short break in this amazing holiday home. It was absolutely beautiful, wonderfully decorated and furnished, well equipped with everything provided apart from bath towels. It's in a lovely location with 3 pubs and shop a short walk away. I cannot praise it enough. I will definitely go back and would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody. The photos do not do it justice!



My friends and I meet up once a year at Meadow Place and it never disappoints. We have now been there six times. Huge rooms, well equipped bedrooms, everything you could ask for and the owners are very helpful and hospitable


The Perfect Stay

This place is just magical, the photos we saw just don't do it justice at all. It's cosy, its pretty, its well equipped, it's spacious! Beautiful location, easy to find, plenty of space to park, comfy beds (although a little squeaky) fantastic living room and a magnificent hall entrance! None of us wanted to leave this beautiful holiday home, i won't hesitate to go back if we get the chance!

Lauren S

Bathrooms have an airlock problem and so have a revolting stinky sewage smell.

A TripAdvisor Member

D&?erations of our family stayed together at Meadow Place. The house was very well layed out for a family reunion with enough space for everyone to be together at once and also allow one to retreat to other parts of the house if privacy was needed.

Dr Svejstrup

Spending the weekend with friends - the accommodation was top notch in this respect, well equipped and with plenty of space, a comfortable and well furnished lounge, and the added benefit of a play room for the boys.

Mrs Alison


Mrs Marriott

We enjoyed every minute of our holiday, excellent location and if anything the brochure did not do this property justice.

Mrs Johnstone

The thing we (9 of us) enjoyed most about our holiday was the lack of nasty surprises. Everything that was said about the property was true and the location, for our purposes of travelling around the Peak District was fantastic. The garden was more than we imagined possible for our 3 boys to play in. Local walks were many and beautiful.

Mr Snyder

Total relaxation. Good selection of pubs with food available. Good country location with easy access to Alton Towers, Leek and other local towns.

Mr Dunsmore

The Wedgewood Museum is a must. Very relaxing surroundings.

Dr Peace

The property was absolutely fantastic, plenty of room with quality decor and furnishings. It was in a perfect location for walking which we enjoyed thoroughly!

Ms Deakin

Lovely barn, clean warm and comfortable. Loads of space, good area,lots to see and do.

Mrs Foster

Extra toys provided - very thoughtful. Perfect for our group with young babies.

Mr Feeney

Great area full of plenty of interesting natural beauty & fantastic walks.

Mrs Evans

Fantastic place - the barn is beautiful - we had a really hot week and the barn has a good layout with the bedrooms downstairs - this and the thick walls kept the overnight temperatures really cool inside - it was a really great holiday and we will be coming back to this place....Our kids loved the frogs in the small pond in the front garden. Privacy with the gates was nice too - and it was sooo quiet.

Mr Curtis

It was marvelous to find accommodation for four couples in four separate bedrooms that allowed smoking and dogs. The real bonus was that all the bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms. The accommodation was superb.

Mrs Guymer

Well positioned for exploring the National Park and surrounding area.Liked the design and layout of the barn conversion.

Mrs McNeil

Great accomodation... space... peaceful and a great base.

Mr & Mrs Frodsham

A gorgeous and beautifully renovated and converted barn. Luxury!

Ms Ellen

Very quiet and relaxing people very friendly, village very clean and well maintained. The garden at accommodation being enclosed was excellent for young children. First holiday away from beach resort and we enjoyed it just as much!

Mrs Ferguson

??, superb time. Meadow Place is a truly stunning property converted to an exceptional standard. With 4 en-suite bedrooms a good sized dining area and a huge lounge there was plenty of space for a large group; you could nearly get lost! As the organ

Miss Melvin

Swimming pool at Leek very good value for money.

Mrs Shopland

It was a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside. We would certainly go there again.The Linden Tree Pub (just a short walk from the cottage) provided us with several excellent meals when we were too lazy to cook

Mrs Jones

All round lovely area, central place to stay- plenty to do.

Mrs Coxall

Wonderful barn conversion - the way that it was all set out (upside down) was a real advantage, and we liked the open fire. Plenty of equipment and entertainment for toddlers. The fact that all 4 bedrooms were ensuite was brilliant - no queue! Perfect area for walking. Local pub had nice smoke free restaurant. Overall it was excellent, and we would certainly recommend it.

Ms Furnival

Great to have 4 ensuite bathrooms. Fabulous open fire. Owner very helpful and friendly. Fox and Goose serves lovely bar food. The Roaches is a good walk.

Mr Lines

Meadow Place was rented to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday with the rest of the family, hence the requirement for 5 bedrooms. We were not disappointed !! The barn conversion was superb and allowed sufficient room for everyone without being in each others pockets. Local scenery was stunning and people from the village friendly.
Enough places of interest to keep everyone happy for a week including trips to Alton Towers, Heights of Abraham, etc. Seriously, this is one of the best family holidays we have had.

Mr & Mrs Rance

The owner provided toys, games and videos for children. milk and biscuits were also in the kitchen on arrival. The property was well positioned for travelling within the Peak District, Alton Towers and the Churnet Valley railway are on the "doorstep". The barn conversion is beautiful.

Mrs Swann

The property is superb and particularly appropriate for a large group. I would definitely reccommend the property to others and will most likely return there again.

Mrs Mills

Well worth a visit for anyone considering a holiday in the Peak District. Ipstones is a lovely friendly little village and the surrounding area is really beautiful.

Mrs Thackray

A fabulous cottage and an ideal base for visiting the area. A lovely, comfortable place to stay with a wonderful garden and lounge.

Dr Crompton

Very pleasant area with many local walks.

Mrs Drew

Everything about Meadow Place was like being in a "Home from Home", it was ideally situated for our foray into The Peak District and our day at Alton Towers, and just a short walk from the village pubs if we didn't want to cook. We couldn't ask for a better location and standard of accommodation. We will be back!

Mrs Wilson

The cottage was amazing and beyond our expectations. The rooms were finished off to a very high standard and it was such a treat to have an en-suite in every bedroom! We had a lovely time and did not want to leave. We will certainly be making a return visit!

Miss Elliott

The barn conversion was of a very high quality with more than enough room for a large party. Having ensuites in all rooms was a real advantage. We would love to come to this property again, as it more than catered for our needs. Highly recommended.

Miss Hopes

We cannot fault the property - especially the cleanliness. The best holiday accommodation we have stayed in.

Miss Collard

It never felt crowded even with ten of us in it. It was good having en-suite facilities to every bedroom. The children enjoyed the playroom, even though they were rather old for the toys in there. There were plenty of places suitable for families to visit within a relatively short distance. We were able to go somewhere different each day.

Mrs Corns

A lovely property, and The Old Red Lion pub was very friendly with good food.

Mrs Hall

Our second visit to Meadow Place. Just like our first time there it exceeded our expectations. Ipstones is a lovely setting with the owners of the property both friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We hope to return in the future.

Mr & Mrs Rance

The house was warm and the owners welcoming. Particularly liked the log burning stove, the fact there was a Christmas tree and the big wooden refectory table which we could all fit around for long meals. The big squashy sofas and coffee table made the big living room very comfy for a larger party to relax in - we had a really lovely early family reunion Christmas and there was lots of room for everyone.

Ms Gwilliam

Meadow Place is wonderful homely property. Lovely and warm and very spacious. The gated garden/courtyard is a superb and safe area for children to play or pets be outside. Lovely part of the country to visit.


Cycle hire at Manifold Trail, Waterhouses was good, and trail was nice and flat - suitable for all ages and abilities.

Mrs Kennedy

Fantastic family accommodation, lovely safe garden for children.

Mr & Mrs Gardener

The cottage was spacious and the facilities, especially the en-suite bathrooms were good. The cottage looked better than the brochure pictures. The village people were friendly and the location although built up around the cottage was very quiet. We were all impressed by the way the conversion had made the most of the space. We would recommend it and would return. The area is beautiful and in spite of the weather we were able to do a couple of long walks.

Mrs Ulrich

The cottage was in an excellent location and everything was provided for plus nice little touches like milk and biscuits waiting for us on arrival. The owners of the cottage had also provided information on things to do in the area which helped us to decide what to do on days out.

Mr Clasper

Plenty of room for the party. The open fire and the dining facilities were appreciated. The outside set up was very good and allowed for outside activities where the dog could roam in complete safety.

Mr Lewis

This was our third year staying at Meadow Place and it was as clean and fresh as the first year. Meadow Place is a beautiful barn conversion and delightful to stay in, especially in winter with a roaring fire going. All rooms being an ensuite is a real bonus. We are already planning our fourth stay for next year!

Miss Barron

Everything was great. The whole feel of the property was just what we wanted. It accommodated all our large families needs. We all loved it. Set in a very nice friendly village. Hosts were very helpful.

Ms Vincent

Log fire, location, parking and cleanliness.

Our stay was excellent overall.

Very very good, none better, will go again soon.
Every possible need was anticipated and present in the cottage.

Mr Hall

House was lovely, particularly the living areas. Owners were friendly and helpful.
The house was very cosy and warm!

Mrs Money

We felt the property was of an excellent size to accommodate 8-10 adults without feeling at all enclosed or cramped.
The kitchen was exceptionally well stocked. The focus and attention to waste recycling was great to see.

Mr Evans

An ideal place for a good family Christmas.

Mr & Mrs Hargraves

The property was comfortable and warm in a good location. We are always looking for 4-5 bedrooms with en-suites and this fitted the bill well. A well stocked wood shed to keep the log fire burning. It made for an overall great week and we plan to return for next year!

Mrs Stanley

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we were very comfortable in the property.

Mrs Fennell

Excellent accommodation for 10 people. Great location for Peak District.

Mrs Rogers

This property is ideal for a number of families as it has plenty of internal space. We were very pleased with the accommodation.

Mr Farnaby

I liked the fact that the cottage had en-suite's in most of the rooms and that the garden was closed in as we had a child with us. I have never been happier with an accommodation that I have stayed in before.

Miss Cuffe

Very comfortable cottage, we liked the en-suite facilities in particular, plus the amount of space the place had.

Mr Litt

The size of the property was very good for two families. Good quiet village location. A nice homely cottage.
Fantastic location for access to Dove Dale and the Peak District. Lovely walks, both locally and a short drive away.
Also Alton Towers within 20 minutes drive, and Chatworth House nearby. Lots to do and see. We'll be back again at some point.

Mrs Catton

The location on the edge of the Peak District and the various things to do in the area. The design of the property and the size of the rooms gave everyone plenty of space.

Mr Sayers

We had an absolutely perfect holiday. The house was immaculate and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The fireplace made the house feel extra cozy during the autumn evenings. The surrounding country side was exquisite.

Ms Nielsen

The barn/cottage was brilliant, much better than expected. The photo's on the internet do not do it justice. Very clean, spacious and homely. Excellent location. It fitted 10 adults easily, I can't wait to book our next visit.

Miss Ross

Spacious accommodation of a good standard, in a good location for local attractions/walking/pubs. Very friendly village.

Mrs Garrett

The property is much more spacious than would be apparent from the photos, and wonderfully quirky in its layout. A complete joy for all of us to have en-suite facilities. Everywhere we went in Ipstones we were warmly welcomed and given excellent service, by young and old. We are already looking to book this property again.

Mr Weeks

Large living spaces, great for children and adults.

Mrs Stewart

We had a fantastic break, the house was everything we expected and more. We would have re-booked again for this Christmas had it not already been booked up.

Mrs Stokes

Lovely welcome, beautiful open fire which provided a welcome respite from the snow after a long walk in the countryside! Wine cooler a much appreciated touch!

Miss Radcliffe

Once again, an ideal place for a family holiday - our 5th visit. A lovely property. Grandson says Alton Towers is good for children!

Mrs Shopland

The property itself was one of the best we have stayed at.

Dr Pavri

The barn had a wow factor! The 4 bathrooms were great as we were 4 separate couples. The local pub was excellent for very reasonably priced food.

Mrs Vincent

This property was extremely clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for all the family and we had a fantastic break.

Mrs Soto

The property was ideal for us as a 3 generation family - having en-suites to all bedrooms was very useful. The surrounding area gave us plenty of options for things to do within a reasonable distance. We would highly recommend the 'Marquis of Granby' in Ipstones village for meals.

Ms Brown

The house was very spacious and comfortable. We all had our own space and bathroom facilities. Our 4 year old grandson soon made himself at home and loved his playroom and toys.

Mr Sides

This is an ideal cottage for either four couples or two families. It has a lovely homely feel to it. The owners made us very welcome. Ipstones is a great base to explore from. Hidden gems were Cheadle, Foxfield Railway, Leek and of course there is great walking.

Prof Rogerson

The house was excellent and the pictures on the website didn't really do it justice. The owners were extremely helpful especially cleaning away the snow so that we could all park the cars. The village is lovely and has good pubs.

Mr Chapman

The property is a lovely large premises, situated next to a quiet road. Perfect for our party of 8 adults and 1 child. Loved the open fire and the big TV! All the bedrooms have ensuite which means no queueing for the bathroom in the morning.

Mr Sutherland

Very suitable cottage for a family reunion for four couples with small children. Particularly liked the lounge with large TV and coal/log fire, the dining area next to the kitchen, and the large entrance lobby.

Mrs Mahy

The accommodation was spacious and had plenty of interesting features which enhanced the overall feel of the property. I did not feel that the photos on the website did justice to the property. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Plenty of room for parking and a few minutes walk from the local shop and pubs.

Mrs Butler

Thought the 'upside down' layout was an unusual twist that worked really well for all of us. Bedrooms and en-suites all a fab size and decorated to give a warm welcome to all who arrived. Lounge a lovely airy size, thoroughly enjoyed the real open fire. Kitchen facilities more than adequate. Well located to explore the local countryside. Will definitely be coming again!

Mrs Townsend

Meadow Place is extremely spacious and comfortable. Having an en-suite in four of the bedrooms was a plus, giving privacy to everyone. The large dining room table accommodated us adequately. There are walks from the cottage and Alton Towers is six miles away. A great choice for my retirement celebrations. I would certainly recommend this cottage!

Mr Jones

A beautiful and comfortable cottage in a great situation for visiting a range of sites.

Mrs Blunt

We (4 over 60's couples)came to walk & it was good. We self catered & ate out & this was all fine. The house, location, & area were great. The locals friendly.

Mr Barber

The cottage was beautiful and the local villagers were very friendly.

Mr Taylor

A fantastic property! It was great having all the rooms en-suite. Very comfortable and ideally located, so many things to do.

Mrs Hands

A fantastic property. We will be going back.

Mr Kyme

Our third visit, this must say something! The property is very spacious and quite quirky, a lot of imagination went into the build and decoration. Owners were very helpful but do not intrude, perfect. Even a packet of Jaffa Cakes to welcome us!

Mr Weeks

The accommodation was perfect for entertaining a large group of friends/ family, particularly to find such an excellent property that is dog friendly as well. The owners struck just the right balance of being helpful yet unobtrusive. The village is well served for amenities, and the area is excellent for walking.

Mr Beardsley

This is a beautiful property with so much room. The en-suite bathrooms were brilliant and it was ideal for the family get together we booked it for. It is very well equipped and so warm. The owners are very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. I would recommend this property and will definitely be back.

Mrs Bendle

We stay in a holiday cottage every other year and this cottage was by far one of the best cottages we have stayed in! It was beautiful and as there were four generations of family staying, there was more than enough room for all of us! We had a wonderful Christmas and the owners made us more than welcome and we would defiantly be going back in the near future!

Mrs Robinson

The cottage was marvelous! The cottage far exceeded our expectations and was also ideally placed for us to explore the Peak District. We certainly hope to go back on another occasion.

Mr Neville

The cottage was excellent, plenty of room and lovely and clean. Would love to go back in the near future. Many thanks.

Mrs Whittam-smith

We were there during rather bad weather but staying indoors was no problem. A log fire and two lounges made it very comfortable and warm for eight of us to enjoy this large cottage. We ventured out to a nearby pub which was good for real ales and over large plates of good English pub food. There was also a good selection of National Trust properties in easy driving distance.

Mr Eley

Excellent barn conversion, spacious and quiet.

Mrs Hobbs

The cottage was well equipped and great for a large family. We appreciated all rooms having their own en-suite. It hardly rained!

Mr Stephenson

The location was an excellent base for the Peak District and it's many attractions. The village was lovely, with pubs and shops nearby. Locals were very friendly. There was plenty of space in the house - excellent when you are a big party.

Mrs Hopgood

Nice neighbours and the people in the area were very friendly. I think everyone we passed in the street spoke to us and made us feel welcome. Property is very roomy even for 10 people. All rooms are really nice. Lots of information provided, both for things relating to the property and of places to visit in the area. The games and wifi were appreciated. The upstairs living area was nice as it had all the sunlight. Plenty of safe parking space within the property boundary. Overall a very good holiday property - we would certainly like to return.

Mrs May

Lovely accommodation, plenty of room and well equipped. The four en-suite bathrooms were an added bonus. A friendly and well located village.


Relaxing, comfy environment, beautiful countryside on the doorstep. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Mr McCann

Fantastic property - everything we could have possibly wanted. Particularly liked the fact that the bedrooms were all en-suite.

Mrs Court

The cottage is a beautiful property, offering much needed space for big parties. The 50 inch TV was a great bonus!

Mr Twiner

Mrs Murphy

Ideal property for a family gathering; just like running your own hotel.

Mrs Spencer

The cottage had plenty of character. Great open fire in the living room, nicely decorated bedrooms with comfy beds. Located in a quiet village, just 15 minutes to Alton Towers. An amazing holiday cottage for our break.

Mr Malone

A beautiful home.

Mr Boyd

Spacious well equipped cottage; deserves a higher star rating!

Mrs Duff

We love the comfortable, cosy feel of the property. The open fire in the lounge is fantastic. The property is in a good location for us, as there are so many walks in the area, and the Peak District is close by. A super place that we keep going back to with friend for long weekends.

Mr Holmes

Very well equipped, extremely comfortable, loads of space, especially lovely it was decorated for Christmas.

Mrs Dixon

Close to pub and store. Atractive property, comfortable and spacious. Parking good.

Mr Killey

Stayed for family gathering for the Christmas and our week was full of laughter and happiness. On arrival we had the instant Christmas feeling as it was so nicely decorated. The cottage is such a lovely place to stay, so clean and comfortable, deserves a higher star rating. Thank you so much for the card, wine and chocolates and for our extra special Christmas, one we'll never forget!!

Mrs Whittam-Smith

We had a fantastic time, the property was excellent and the owner was very helpful and very nice.

Miss Askey

Lovely old building with loads of character and room. The owners were very friendly and the village is in a beautiful position on the Staffordshire Moors. We didn't need to go far to find excellent walks, wonderful scenery, pretty villages and fantastic gardens to visit. The lounge is huge, the dining room is part of a minstrels' gallery and through the other side of the kitchen is a good-sized children's playroom.

A good sized property in excellent condition, we had loads of space for a 4 generation family holiday. The kitchen had everything you could ever need for family cooking. We loved our week and will go back again.
