Description

The Milk Barn is a wonderful barn conversion, renovated in 2020. It stands on the edge of a wild flower meadow, created with help from the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, with extensive views over 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 National Park. The peaceful surroundings are ideally suited to walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists and all who love the countryside.

Ashbourne retains many small shops, including antiques, as well as a wide choice of cafés, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. The nearby Peak District has many attractions including the beautiful Dovedale, the spa town of Buxton, Matlock and the Heights of Abraham. Lesser known Leek, the ’Queen of the Moorlands’, has a lengthy history, with a number of old and interesting buildings, and the Nicholson Institute houses a museum and art gallery, both nearby.

Within easy reach of Stanton are Cheadle, with its magnificent church, outdoor activities at Carsington Water, and for thrill seekers, 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 and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

Leek is the principal town of the Staffordshire Moorlands on the south western edge of the Peak District National Park, situated in an elevated position by the River Churnet. The town has a long history being mentioned in the Doomsday Book, but it certainly pre-dates this.

In the late 18th and 19th centuries the town grew to become a centre of silk weaving and several mills were built at this time, however nothing now remains of the silk industry in Leek today. The town has a bustling shopping centre and a market every Wednesday and provides an excellent base from which to explore the south and western Peak District.

To the north within the Peak District National Park is an area of rock and heather called The Roaches, with Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks, forming a gritstone escarpment which marks the south western edge of the national park. The Roaches consist of two edges, a lower and upper tier, with rock-steps connecting them. Hen Cloud is an imposing solitary edge which rises steeply from the ground. This whole area is well known to walkers and rock climbers, providing some of the best gritstone climbing in the country.
