The property

Leek 5 miles.

Enjoying exceptional views of the Peak District countryside in Upper Hulme near Leek is this snug, original stone cottage, Little Barn.

Showcasing delightful interiors with original beams, flooring and stonework, along with boasting easy access to the Peak District's outdoor activities, this is the perfect little abode for a family of four wanting to experience this part of Staffordshire.

After a day packed with excursions, make your way inside the property to be enveloped by the rustic open-plan living space.

Venture over to the sitting area and make yourself at home on the spacious corner sofa and put on your favourite movie on the Smart TV; throw some logs into the woodburning stove for some extra warmth.

When you're feeling peckish, head over to the kitchen and rustle up some culinary delights on the kitchen's selection of appliances, including a fabulous electric stove and slimline dishwasher!

When dinner is ready, gather your group at the charming dining table with its bench seating and crack open a bottle of wine as you catch up about the fabulous time you're having.

As the day comes to an end, climb the stairs to find two lovely bedrooms, a double with a part-vaulted ceiling and abundant storage, as well as a picture-perfect window to admire the glorious vista from the comfort of your bed; along with a large, plank bunk bed that is ideal for kids or extra friends.

They share a close-by shower room with a walk-in shower that is ideal for freshening yourself up for a day filled with fun in the Peaks.

Little Barn's outdoor area is superb and really showcases those spectacular views; be sure to unwind on the ample outdoor furniture and try your hand at sightseeing, with views up to the Roaches & Hen Cloud at the top of the hill!

Despite its quaint location, the property is just a stone's throw away from a restaurant and pub in Upper Hulme, as well as being a short hike away from the scenic point of Hen Cloud and the idyllic Doxey Pool.

Upper Hulme is a peaceful setting with fabulous walks, challenging hills or just general relaxation on offer for everyone, all just less than five miles from the moorland market town of Leek.

Travel a short distance into Leek where you will find a selection of amenities, including the highly rated Leek Bar & Grill, along with a handful of fantastic attractions, from the Foxlowe Arts Centre to Brindley Water Mill.

Travel north to the spa town of Buxton and wander through its pretty, Pavilion Gardens, learn of the town's history at the Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, before spending the afternoon exploring the famed Poole's Cavern.

Make the most of the Peak District National Park and spend the day cycling through the beautiful Macclesfield Forest, embark on one of the Park's many walking trails, including Three Shires Head, or explore the gorgeous valley of Dovedale.

About the location


Buxton 12 miles; Ashbourne 15 miles.

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.
