    The barn was warm cosy spotless and comfortable. We had a very warm welcome from the owners. Plenty of pubs within a few miles serving good quality home made food. Excellent choice for a quiet, get away from it all break.

The property

Leek 4 miles.

This is a lovely one bedroom barn conversion set high in the hills in the grounds of a working moorland farm, just four miles from the Staffordshire town of Leek.

Dating back to the 17th century and with an elevated position and beautiful rural location, this sympathetically converted barn has breathtaking views of the moors and rolling hills making it an ideal base for walkers or a couple looking for a romantic retreat.

The cottage features exposed beams creating a warm country feel with contemporary furnishings.

The modern shower room is luxurious and the bedroom is beautifully furnished, with views overlooking the stunning countryside; a lovely way to wake up and start your day watching the sheep and cattle grazing in this peaceful, rural setting.

The stylish fitted farmhouse kitchen provides for all your culinary needs, so you can enjoy a relaxing evening of delicious home cooking and then cosy up in the comfortable sitting room featuring period beams and an impressive fireplace with a woodburning stove.

Outside, to the front of this beautiful cottage is a stone flagged patio which is a great spot for a barbecue while enjoying the magnificent views over the rolling green countryside.

Relax with your favourite tipple and watch the evening sunset from this idyllic retreat.

Right on the doorstep are fantastic walks and cycle rides around this rugged countryside.

The town has a charming cobbled market place and there are many examples of fine Victorian architecture influenced by William Morris - a reminder of the town’s prosperity when it was renowned as a silk manufacturing centre.
