This unique property, nestled in the Dane Valley, is a 1750's stone cottage with breathtaking views over the River to the wooded escarpment beyond. To the back of the cottage and accessed via steps is a delightful south facing private garden which adjoins farmland, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or a pint of the fabulous Wincle beer. Previously renovated by keen walkers for use as a weekend retreat, the accommodation is presented to a very high standard and extends over three floors. A charming Kitchen/Dining room with beamed ceiling, contemporary units and an oil fired Rayburn forms the ground floor. The first floor has a lovely Lounge with a cast iron log burner as its focal point and completing the layout is a pretty double Bedroom adjoined by a quirky en-suite bathroom....This unique property, nestled in the Dane Valley, is a 1750's stone cottage with breathtaking views over the River to the wooded escarpment beyond.

The first floor has a lovely Lounge with a cast iron log burner as its focal point and completing the layout is a pretty double Bedroom adjoined by a quirky en-suite bathroom. Every room enjoys a fabulous outlook over the valley. The Ship Inn, up the lane, is a truly excellent village pub, extremely popular locally and a wonderful, comfortable, friendly place to while an evening. There is a well established microbrewery and a fishery just down the lane and both open to the public if you fancy having a pint and catching a trout for your dinner. As well as being a walkers paradise, this area has an abundance of National Trust properties to explore. Or for those who fancy a little bit of a pamper, the Mill Wheel Spa, just 8 miles away, provides a unique, relaxing experience which should not be missed. Despite the rural splendour, this part of the Peak District National Park is within comfortable driving distance of Leek and other centres such as Macclesfield ,Buxton and Congleton which offer a varied range of facilities and exploring opportunities. This is a truly beautiful place for individuals or couples, come to walk, relax, unwind or use the cottage as a base to explore this stunning area, who knows, you may even be inspired to paint or write poetry, this is definitely the place to give it a try! Hope to see you soon. Just a few things to be aware of: This is a small property, arranged over 3 floors with two internal steep flights of stairs (with restricted head height) accessed by steps with another steep flight leading to the garden. If you have mobility issues or are particularly tall this accommodation is probably not for you but, have a look at Dane Cottage Congleton, which is a beautiful, single storey property with vaulted ceilings set in stunning gardens overlooking its own fishing pool and only 20 minutes away. Due to restricted space, the bath (with hand held mixer shower head) is accessed by climbing over the shortest end. There is an induction hob and a microwave/oven/grill/steamer combi for cooking. Please note: the Rayburn is only lit when it is cold enough in the winter and is used for heating and hot water. For the rest of the year heating is via portable heaters and the log burner and the water is heated via an immersion heater. The nearest village shop is about 4 miles away and supermarket 6 miles so bring supplies with you. Parking is available on the road.More

There is a key safe at the property. I contact every guest one week before arrival with directions, general information and a unique access code. I live about 20 mins away so if there are any problems I can be on hand but otherwise I leave you alone to enjoy your holiday.

The accommodation is accurately described by Hilary (noting steep stairs, bathroom layout and hangers rather than wardrobe which was as expected). Very well presented accommodation on a 1 up, 1 up, 1 up (plus ensuite) basis. There is plenty of parking on the nearby road...More

A beautiful cottage with everything you could need - warm, cosy and immaculate. The village is very pretty and there are gorgeous walks on all sides. The pub is a two minute walk - but be sure to bring a torch as there’s no street...More
