Moorland View Farm Cottages
These two cosy cottages are located in a courtyard in the grounds of the owner’s B&B in the small hamlet of Winkhill, set in an elevated position in five acres overlooking stunning countryside near the market towns of Leek and Ashbourne. The cottages are a lovely conversion of traditional Staffordshire stone buildings, blending original features and modern styling with exposed beams. Outside, both cottages have beautiful gardens to sit and take in the glorious views. There are many pubs and restaurants nearby and you can even arrange to have your breakfast next door if you fancy it (pending availability). There are stunning walks to be taken in Mill Dale and Dove Dale or you can explore the National Trust’s Hawksmoor, an ancient forest nature reserve. Within half an hour's drive, guests can enjoy a round of golf on the excellent course at Whiston. The area offers many ancient relics from its industrial past, namely the Caldon Canal built in 1776 and restored in 1974, which runs through the Churnet Valley. Visitors can also enjoy a ride on the Churnet Valley Steam Railway. Alton Towers is just a short drive away, as are the Staffordshire Potteries, the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek, Uttoxeter Racecourse and the majestic Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Lyme Park and Blackbrook Zoological Gardens. A great base for a memorable holiday at any time of the year
