This cosy, traditional, brick-built semi-detached cottage is set in the village of Kingsley near the Peak District and Alton Towers.
With views, an inflatable hot tub and an open fire, this property is an ideal base for a small family or group of friends to explore the region.
The bedrooms are furnished with good quality beds with the twin room enjoying countryside views.
The sitting room is a very warm and cosy place to sit and gaze into the open fire and the modern kitchen with dining area is a great place to gather for a home-cooked meal and discuss the day’s adventures.
You could of course just spend the day sat on the deck in the enclosed south-facing garden or sit in the hot tub and watch the sun drop over the hills.
There’s even a Wendy House with toys to keep the children entertained.
There is however, plenty to tempt you out for the day within a short walk; you could be on the platform waiting to jump on board a steam train or those wishing to travel under their own steam can join the towpath of the famous Caldon Canal.
Explore the beautiful countryside and heritage using pedal power, safe in the knowledge that the owner has installed anchor points in the lockable garage to protect bikes when not in use.
This cosy home-from-home makes a fantastic base camp for adventure and there’s plenty to entertain you all year round.
Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size double, 1 x twin. Shower room with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with open fire.
About the location
Alton Towers 8 miles; Leek 10 miles; Stoke-on-Trent 10 miles.
Kingsley is a quaint rural village in the Staffordshire countryside. It is home to a couple of pubs and the Kingsley Bird & Falconry Centre which makes for a fascinating day out. Just eight miles away is Alton Towers Theme Park, where kids of all ages can test their nerve on a wide selection of rides. The Staffordshire Way, a long distance walking route, runs through the village, and there is a vast selection of walks for all abilities on the doorstep, plus there is an excellent golf course in Whiston. The Peak District National Park is easily accessed to the north, whist the Pottery towns of Stoke-on-Trent have a wide array of interesting museums to visit. There are also fascinating relics of the area’s industrial heritage - the Caldon canal (built in 1776 and restored and opened for navigation in 1974) runs through the valley and visitors will enjoy a scenic ride on the Churnet Valley Railway steam trains. A great touring base for exploring all of the Peak District and the Staffordshire Moorlands.
