About the location

Moneystone

Cheadle 3 miles; Ashbourne 10 miles.

A lovely unspoilt hamlet, Moneystone is an ideal base for the Churnet Valley and Staffordshire Moorlands or as a year-round destination to explore the Peak District National Park just to the north. Hills and valleys surround the hamlet and it is possible to walk for miles without crossing any roads. Moneystone overlooks the Churnet Valley in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands, at the south end of the Peak District. The area is a delight for walkers and cyclists, including two former railway routes: the 'Manifold Trail' following the route of the old Leek-to-Manifold Light Railway and the picturesque ‘Oakamoor to Denstone Greenway’. Nearby are Oakamoor, Ipstones, Ilam, good pubs and village shops, whilst further afield are the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek and of course Alton Towers theme park, just 3 miles away.

It was nice to be in the country, without the distractions of the city. The accommodation was first class. Definitely recommended. I'll certainly be going back in the future.

Mr Hinds, Cardiff, March 2014

We especially loved the coal fire. The accommodation was of a high standard and was warm & cosy. The kitchen was very well kitted out & a lot of the things were in there; cleaning products, foil etc. We will go back as it's close to relatives & has a great setting, down a track off a quiet single track road. The view is amazing too.

Mrs Turner, Chelmsford, December 2013

This is a MUST stay at property superb in every way. If anyone is thinking of a family holiday or just a short break away this accommodation offers everything you could wish for. Short commute to Alton Towers for families, superb walks for ramblers or guests with pets, fabulous local country pubs, supermarkets near by. One of the best family holidays I have ever had.We would certainly visit again, we would give it 5*.

Mrs Davies, Melrose, July 2013

The location of the cottage and the immediate environment for peace and quiet. It was very comfortable and cosy. There were lots of areas for long or short safe woodland and hillside/valley walks. Very beautiful 'old' English countryside. Very friendly and approachable owners nearby who helped us plan our walks and pointed out places of interest with great knowledge of their locality. A very nice outside area to sit out on the sunnier mornings and evenings.
