  • "Such a lovely property, very well kept and looked after."

    Cozy and warm with everything you could need and more is at this property. Great owners, available if needed. Peaceful scenic location. We loved our stay and will definitely return. Lovely walks from the property which we enjoyed with our dogs, even with the bad weather. Gorgeous hot tub for unwinding at the end of the day. We could not have asked for more. Thank you so much Mark & Matt.

    Our first Christmas away and a perfect location to do it. Private, immaculate and we loved the hot tub. Mark and Matt kept us informed and updated regarding our stay and were on hand to answer questions and make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We would highly recommend Manor Barn to anyone looking for some quiet time with loved ones in a beautiful private setting.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay with our dog with at Manor Barn and would highly recommend this property for a very peaceful country getaway in comfortable surroundings."

    After having a slight issue at the start of our break which was dealt with brilliantly by the owner Mark, we were very impressed with his level of customer service and thank him for dealing with it so efficiently & quickly. The property was super clean and so spacious and the standard of furnishings was of high quality. It was very well equipped and we couldn't really think of anything that was not provided. The hot tub was beautiful with a lovely elevated view of the countryside and perfect to relax in and enjoy the great outdoors. Although this location is in the country it was not that isolated from anything as it had a great pub about 10 mins walk away called 'The Shoulder of Mutton' which was dog friendly and served very nice food. Further afield about 10 - 15 mins drive we found shops for our supplies. Finally there was a great walk just up the lane from the property which had elevated views over the area which was beautiful and worth exploring. Overall to sum up this property we would not hesitate to go back if in the area and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break in peaceful surroundings which is ideally located for many things.

  • "We enjoyed a lovely stay at Manor Barn."

    The accommodation was very private and comfortable with lovely facilities. An extra fridge freezer has been added providing plenty of space for chilled and frozen items. The barn was extremely dog friendly with tiled floors, gates at the top and bottom of the stairs and fenced garden. The area was so peaceful and the large hot tub with beautiful countryside views was amazing. Mark and Matthew were very friendly and helpful. The pub in Fulford just five minutes walk away was very welcoming, dog friendly with lovely food. Worth booking to ensure a table. The area has some great places to visit such as Trentham Gardens, Rudyard Lake and Churnet Valley Railway which has Hetty’s Tea Room in walking distance which is also well worth a visit! We would definitely return in the future.

  • "Absolutely stunning property in such a peaceful area."

    The hot tub was really appreciated and the lovely patio area. I think if you stayed for a week you would struggle with the small freezer compartment in the fridge, so a fridge freezer would be a welcome addition. The barn has a washer/dryer but the drying cycle takes a long time. A 4 slice toaster would be a good addition too and checking the bulbs as quite a few were out. Thank you for the bottle of wine and we would definitely recommend the barn to family and friends

  • "The location is lovely."

    For us using this property especially as it is listed up to 6 people would be that it requires a proper fridge and a proper freezer. The little one that is provided has a lot of space taken up with the door and the little freezer compartment. I would also liked to have seen more than 4 mugs. Apart from this the property is spacious downstairs and has a large kitchen with plenty of seating available for sitting at at meal times. Was nice having a downstairs loo as well. The stairs are a somewhat creaky so a quiet journey to bed is not an option. Upstairs again the rooms are quite spacious. Master bedroom had a nice view over the fields. The ensuite bathroom is small but adequate for the small to medium sized person. This bedroom could have done with a full set of drawers as the dressing table does not have a plug point next to it. The wardrobe is adequate for a short stay but you will have to bend to get into it. The other bedroom is a good size and again has views. This bedroom has a proper wardrobe and chest of drawers. The family bathroom is at the top of the stairs between the two bedrooms. The hot tub is lovely to relax in after a long day out and about. There is plenty of parking and the area designated for this house outside is made quite private by a wall. There is a nice grass area if you have kids for them to play on as well as slab area as patio. There is seating provided for enjoying the sunset or meals outside. There are also a couple of large garden games to be played. The property is clean and tidy but for us just needed a few tweaks.

    The kitchen was well equipped albeit the fridge was very small with only an ice box freezer. The living space was ok. Outside was pleasant and we enjoyed using the hot tub. Upstairs the property was very disappointing. It was very small being built into the roof space of the building. The windows had very limited opening capacity (just a few cms) which meant it was too hot and stuffy for sleeping even when outside it wasn’t too warm. The location was good and the local pub within walking distance served nice food.

    Mark and Matt the owners are two great people who always find time to chat and give any advice if required. The cottage has got everything you could ever need and it is beautifully maintained throughout. It is the best cottage we have ever stayed in and the fencing surrounding the patio area made it really secure for our little dog, there was no way she could get to those chickens lol . It also meant we could make nightly use of the "AMAZING " hot tub and not worry about what the dog was doing. Safety gates are fitted at the top and bottom of the one flight of stairs which was great as our two year old grandson was with us for the first two days. The local pub which is just a six minute walk through the village is advertised as dog friendly so we had every intention of eating there on most evenings, however we could not do this as they only allow dogs in the beer garden and the weather was not suitable for eating out at night. Finally , the address in Sykes Cottages listing "suggests" it is in the Peak District. ....It is not in the Peak District, however it is still a lovely , quiet and rural location . Mark and Matt.....Thanks once again for a fantastic stay.. Regards Nick & Bev Carter.

There has been no expense spared at all with this one. Great furniture and fittings, heated tiled flooring, solid wood kitchen and doors, fantastic bathrooms, lovely patio area (totally fenced off for our dogs) and to top it off, the best Hot tub we have ever been in! The area is lovely too, with plenty to do in the surrounding area. All in all, it was the perfect break away for me and my family. We will most definitely be back in the near future and we never visit the same place twice! Keep up the amazing work guys. See you again soon :)

The property

A luxurious brick-built semi-detached barn conversion on the outskirts of the pretty Staffordshire village of Fulford.

Next to the owner’s home on a working smallholding, the cottage has been finished with high specification solid oak furniture and quality fixtures.

With the addition of fantastic outdoor space, the cottage is equally ideal for a couple, two couples, a small family or a group of four.

As you step into the open plan living area, kick off your shoes to take full advantage of the warmth from the underfloor heated wood-effect flooring throughout.

The whole room floods with light from the full height window wall.

There are sumptuous sofas where you can flop in front of the designer woodburning stove or maybe watch a movie.

There is a superb modern kitchen with a lovely dining area making for an excellent breakfast.

Both bedrooms have lovely views, equally spacious and well-appointed including TVs.

The double room has an en-suite shower room and there is also a bathroom on the landing as well which can effectively serve as an en-suite for the second bedroom.

As with the rest of the property the owners have spared no expense on the outside of the cottage.

A raised terrace with patio and lawned area is a fantastic place to sit out and dine alfresco while enjoying the lovely scenery, or take a long soak in the superb hot tub while looking at the unimpeded starlit sky.

If you fancy a change of pace and scene, it’s a short drive to the towns of Stone, Stafford and Uttoxeter, each with a great selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Uttoxeter is home to a popular racecourse which has meetings throughout the year and the ever-popular Alton Towers theme park is just 12 miles away.

With other attractions in the area such as Chatsworth House, Amerton Farm, Shugborough Hall, Cannock Chase, Trentham Gardens, Wedgwood Centre and The Potteries, there is lots to enjoy whatever the season.
