  • "This was my second stay at Cordwainer Cottage."

    It is ideally located for all the places I wanted to visit. Muriel, the owner is lovely, and we spoke most days. It had everything I needed for my break and it was spotlessly clean. I've already recommended it to several of my friends.. The only suggestion I would make, would be to put a mirror on the opposite side of the road to assist exiting the driveway.

    Thank you for your lovely comments Les... it was super to have you visit once again! We take on board your suggestion about the mirror... Many thanks Property Owner

  • "A lovely little cottage equipped with everything you need."

    The cottage sits in the owners grounds. I can honestly say she is one of the nicest people I have ever met and her local knowledge helped make the holiday as enjoyable as it was, We also saw her for a daily chat and they were as much a part of the holiday as our daily trips out. Bakewell market on a Monday is definitely worth a visit. Also whilst you are in the potteries you have to visit one of the pottery museums. We went to Gladstone pottery and it was a day to remember. My husband is partially sighted and the staff were magnificent .The cafe is also worth a visit, be warned though the tea cakes are bigger than a small plate. Thinking of booking the cottage again next year.

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the quaint village of Bagnall, and conveniently positioned for easy access to the city of Stoke-on-Trent, this delightful former barn is situated in the grounds of the owner’s rural property.

Originally a shoemaker’s workshop, Cordwainer Cottage is a cosy dwelling and comes with a blend of original features and contemporary styling, it is ideally placed for visitors to enjoy a relaxing retreat or outdoor adventure and offers a wonderful base for exploring Staffordshire and the nearby Peak District region.

The well-appointed kitchen comes with everything you could need to rustle up a meal before settling down for the evening, gather around the dining table, situated in the open-plan living space and enjoy your meal over a glass of wine, or use this space to plan the next day's events, and when the nights draw in, relax in the welcoming lounge area and watch the TV or maybe play a boardgame.

Completing the interior is a spacious double bedroom to the rear of the cottage, with a small selection of modern furniture to house all your personal items, and a family shower room.

To the side of the cottage are lawned gardens with a range of seating where you can relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine and enjoy the picturesque setting.

Cordwainer Cottage offers a splendid retreat in this delightful, rural part of Staffordshire and is an ideal base for those wishing to spend some time exploring this part of the country.

There is such a variety of attractions that visitors will be spoiled for choice; whether it is the excitement of Alton Towers, the adventure of the Trentham Gardens Monkey Forest, the tranquility and beauty of the Peak District or the history and culture of the world famous pottery industry that still draws visitors from far and near to “The Potteries”!

Whatever your preference, you won’t be disappointed!
