  • "This was our second and best stay at Mill Cottage."

    Great pre arrival communication with the host and easy entry instructions. Complimentary milk, mince pies, doggie treats and a thoughtful Christmas card waiting for our arrival. Surprisingly quiet for such a perfect location in the middle of town and a car park twenty metres away, opposite the cottage. The only issue is the lack of hanging space so unable to fully unpack our suitcases during our stay.

The hillside market town of Leek, known as “The Queen of the Moorlands” is situated on the western side of The Peaks and is surrounded by lovely Moorland 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. Today Leek offers a wide selection of shops including vast antique emporiums, a good selection of restaurants, a local park and leisure facilities and real ale pubs. Situated close to Three Shires Head, the meeting point of the counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, Leek is near to Chatsworth House, Buxton Opera House and Gawsworth Hall, plus Alton Towers is within driving distance.
