    This cottage is just amazing, so beautiful and the views are to die for. Absolutely fabulous You have everything you need and more (numerous outdoor eating and sitting areas, fabulous pool room, bbq, fire place....and the list goes on ) and the owners are just a phone call away if you need anything at all. Lovely long walks around the lake with the dogs, people were ever so friendly. Fishing was also really good, we caught numerous bream and a very big carp of nearly 30lbs. I would highly recommend the Horton Lodge and will definitely be back. Thanks ever so much Tony and Zoe for the lovely holidays, this house is a little piece of Heaven, Carmen, JP, baby Junior, cheeky Oso and princess Opi.

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.
