Adjoining the owner’s working farm (with alpacas, sheep and beef cattle) this stone cottage is situated in a quiet unspoilt corner of the Peak District. Built in 1841 it has been sympathetically renovated to offer a real ’away from it all’ place to stay throughout the year. The front door leads into a cosy lounge with a traditional tiled floor, wood burner stove and comfy sofas, with far reaching views across the surrounding moorland. At the end of this room is the well equipped kitchen which has a view out onto the rear garden. Sitting outside the cottage on a summers evening, maybe watching the alpacas feeding in the surrounding fields, will make you want to return again to experience a genuinely rural way of life.

About the local area

This area, known as the Staffordshire Moorlands, is less busy than others in the Peak District but has a lot to offer. The nearby village of Longnor, with gritstone buildings clustered around the former market square, boasts a shop, craft centre, pubs and (unusually for a mall village) its own fish and chip shop. Set on a ridge between the valleys of the rivers Dove and Manifold it is an attractive village, whilst other ones nearby include Hartington, with its village pond and speciality cheese shop, and Wetton and Butterton both perched high above the picturesque Manifold valley.
There are superb walks all around, either along the river valleys such as Dovedale, through woods or over wild moorland. For cyclists two traffic free cycle routes are within easy reach - the Tissington Trail and the Manifold Track, both former railway lines that run for miles through spectacular scenery.
This part of the Peak District lies between the towns of Leek, Buxton, Ashbourne and Bakewell - historic market towns which offer shops, restaurants and leisure facilities - all within easy reach. Buses run past the farmhouse to Buxton and Ashbourne so you can enjoy a day out without the car or use public transport to plan a linear walk. Attractions such as Alton Towers, Pooles Cavern at Buxton, Blackpool Zoological Park and the gardens at Biddulph Grange (National Trust) are all easily accessible by car, as are several historic houses such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall
