We loved Cloud Cottage. It was beautifully refurbished but retained a very authentic charm with the choice of finishings and furniture. The beds were the most comfortable ever - felt like we were sleeping on a cloud! The cottage is situated next door to the town church - church bells and all - they actually added to the charm of the place..... We had two teenage girls with us and although the cottage isnt large, it was perfectly sized for the four of us and very well equipped.
Leek is a small market town with a nice atmosphere. I dont think I've seen so many pubs and restaurants in one area before - certainly plenty of choice. We were well situated for visiting Alton Towers, Liverpool, Manchester and various other places - all within an hour or so's reach. Utoxeter Races also worth a visit.....
Highly recommend Cloud Cottage and would stay again without hesitation.
