The Pig Sty is a semi-detached barn conversion that was converted in the spring of 2015 and now offers holiday accommodation for two and is a cosy retreat any time of the year. It stands on the edge of a wildflower meadow, created with help from the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, with extensive views over four counties and the Weaver Hills. It is located in the conservation village of Stanton, just 3 miles from the historic town of Ashbourne and 2 miles from the southern edge of the Peak District. The peaceful surroundings are ideally suited to walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists and all who love the countryside.
Ashbourne retains many small, independent shops, including antiques shops, and there is a wide choice of cafés, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. The southern Peak District has many attractions including the beautiful Dovedale, the spa town of Buxton, Matlock and the Heights of Abraham. Lesser known is Leek, the ’Queen of the Moorlands’, with its lengthy history and a number of old and interesting buildings. Within easy reach of Stanton is Cheadle, with its magnificent Pugin church, for the more adventurous there are outdoor activities at Carsington Water and for excitement Alton Towers. Further afield are many places of interest, including Bolsover Castle, Calke Abbey, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Old Hall, Kedleston Hall and Shugborough. For those interested in our industrial heritage, there are pottery museums in Stoke and Derby, Arkwrights Mill at Cromford and the Silk Museum in Macclesfield. Shop 3 miles, pub serving food 2 miles.
