About the location


Waterhouses 1 mile; Alton Towers 5 miles; Ashbourne 8 miles.

Winkhill is a tiny hamlet in rural Staffordshire, and is just 1 mile from the village of Waterhouses. Waterhouses lies between the market towns of Leek and Ashbourne on the southern fringes of the Peak National Park. The village was once the terminus of the Manifold Valley Light Railway, which is now the scenic Manifold Cycle Track, winding its way through the picturesque valleys of the Rivers Hamps and Manifold. The track is flat and traffic-free for cyclists, walkers and horse-riders. The Waterhouses area offers a village shop, a post office, pubs and a cafe/takeaway. The famous Alton Towers Theme Park is only a short drive away.

The surrounding area was excellent and the views were fantastic, so many good walks. The owners were very welcoming and they had good knowledge of the area.

Cottage was well situated away from built up areas but was close enough to civilisation for food and shops. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Mrs Edmonds, Milton Keynes, February 2014

What a fantastic place to stay, the dogs were made very welcome and were able to explore their acres of garden with no restrictions. The owner was fantastic, her dogs were friendly and got on well with mine. It was a great location for many lovely walks. The owners had there own stream for my dogs to go and clean up before going back into the house. The heating was on all the time and made our stay very enjoyable and cosy. I would definitely go again.
