    “The boathouse is a beautiful place to stay and I would definitely go back with my family.”

    The views from the rooms overlooking the lake are stunning.

    The views from the rooms overlooking the lake are stunning. We had lots of fun using the rowing boat and games room. The owners also left a bottle of Prosecco and chocolates as we were celebrating my 60th birthday which was a lovely gesture.

Stunning original features and contemporary furnishings make this an ideal cottage for a get-together with family and friends.

About the location

RUDYARD LAKE

Leek 4.5 miles.

Rudyard Lake lies in a thickly wooded hillside area of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The 2.5 mile-long lake, part of which is a conservation area, offers many activities including sailing, boating and fishing, as well as many lovely walks and cycle routes and is a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna. There is a small shop and cafe on the lake, as well as a steam railway, a sailing club which offers courses for all abilities, and a hotel with a friendly bar and restaurant. Just 3 miles away is the hillside market town of Leek, known as 'The Queen of the Moorlands'. Leek boasts numerous antique shops, real ale pubs, restaurants and a local park and leisure centre. The town’s cobbled market place has many examples of fine Victorian architecture influenced by William Morris, a reminder of when the town was a silk manufacturing centre. The Three Shire Head is close by, the meeting point of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, as is Tatton Park, a beautiful historic estate with manor house, landscaped gardens, parkland, shops and a restaurant. Styal County Park and Gawswirth Hall are also well worth a visit, and Alton Towers and the beautiful Peak District National Park are just a short drive away.
