    The cottage itself is warm and comforting in the winter months. It has everything you need for a self catering stay and is conveniently located for functions at Heaton House Farm, where we attended a wedding. There was a slight mix up with the keys but this was speedily corrected, without detriment to our stay, and the sisters could not apologise enough for the small oversight.

    The cottage itself is warm and comforting in the winter months. It has everything you need for a self catering stay and is conveniently located for functions at Heaton House Farm, where we attended a wedding. There was a slight mix up with the keys but this was speedily corrected, without detriment to our stay, and the sisters could not apologise enough for the small oversight. There are four good sized bedrooms, a large sitting room and an equally large kitchen table around which you can all eat in comfort, making it an ideal place to stay if you have a large group of people in your party. If the need arises in the future I would have no hesitation in staying at this property again.

About the location

SWYTHAMLEY

Leek 5 miles; Macclesfield 8 miles.

Swythamley, in the Peak District, is a farming community close to the River Dane, lying on the Staffordshire side of the river. Swythamley Hall stands in a fine park and was originally a medieval hunting lodge belonging to the Abbey of Dieulacres. Close to Swythamley is Gun Hill where Cromwell is believed to have located his canon aimed at the town of Leek. On the edge above Swythamley there is a famous landmark - the Hanging Stone, with a fine view over the surrounding countryside. Within easy reach are the Roaches for excellent walking and climbing, cycling trails and country houses. Alton Towers is 40 minutes away. The market towns of Leek and Ashbourne are a short drive away with their unusual antique shops, and the Spa town of Buxton is also an easy distance.
