  • "Overall the property was lovely, nicely presented and clean."

    A lovely peaceful, secluded spot. The lane to the property is very narrow, but provides stunning views. During my stay the wifi was not working at all, which was a problem for me as I'm self employed, so I need to be able to use my laptop. There were no details about the property or local area, which is usual in these type of properties.

  • "The cottage is good in itself but there are small things that need to be put right."

    The bedding, duvet, pillows and the covers all need to be replaced as they are old, worn, thin and stained. The mattresses also are not top quality. The photos on Sykes website of the surroundings are misleading. From the photos it looks like the hot tub is in a nice garden surrounded by woodland. In fact it is in a corner in between the cottage and the fencing around the front of the house. The only view you get is the cottage, the fence and the parking space outside of the fence. There is not much privacy either from the car park. This is not what we expected. There was a tv in each bedroom but in my room I could not find the remote control so could not watch the tv. The tv in the lounge is really good with plenty of choice of channels. I noticed in this bedroom that a picture on the wall was not flush so I took a look to find that it was just about hanging onto a piece of wood at the top that the picture was hiding a hole in the wall where the electricity fuse box was and there were two thick cable which had been cut just hanging down, Finishing touches are important and this should have been boxed in professionally. Also beware of the track down to the cottage. It is littered with pot holes so you have to be careful with your car. This is not soley down to the owners but it should be mentioned on the website to warn drivers. The hot tub can only be used from 10am - 10pm, again this is not mentioned on the website. As another person reviewed the parking space is tight for this cottage. It is a shame because this cottage would be a nice base to stay if all of the above were rectified.

  • "The cottage was on a whole lovely, the facilities were great."

    The cleanliness was awful, me and my partner got through 5 pairs of socks each in 2 days as the floors were so dirty. The towels smelt really musty and unclean. There was dirt and cobwebs all over the property that was in plain sight so it was obvious it wasn’t cleaned beforehand. We had hairs on our pillows, and stains all over the rugs. The people stopping upstairs were really loud in the early hours of the morning, using their hot tub when there is a 10pm time cut off for using that. We really didn’t feel comfortable staying in the cottage so it resulted in us leaving a night early than paid for due to the dirt and noise. For what you pay, you would expect a clean property, especially with the covid variety at the moment. So this was really disappointing. Will not be using again sadly.

  • "Fabulous location, the price is definitely reflective of the location and landmarks near by."

    Not reflecting other parts of the property. There is very tight parking and the owners came across a little bossy. The bedding was awful to look at all brown stained and ripped when we had to take our sheets off. However the cottage is clean loved the bathroom and facilities. The curfew for the hot tub was a shame. Over all would go again. Just think the stained bedding and bobbly pillows need changing and it would be fabulous!

  • "The property was modern and very well presented in most respects, apart from the towels."

    We found these to be of particularly poor quality and quantity, especially for a week stay. This was the only thing that let the cottage down, apart from this we had a lovely stay. The cottage is in an ideal location for touring the region and the Hot Tub was an added bonus.

  • "Had a fantastic time here."

    The cottage was spotless on arrival and Lorna couldn't have been more helpful. The area is absolutely beautiful to bet away from it all. The hot tub was brilliant at the end of a busy day. Will definitely be booking again. Can't recommend highly enough.

    We would have expected higher quality for the price charged.

    Very dark inside no windows in bedrooms very hot and airless so unable to get a good nights sleep as we are elderly we sat reading in the evening and found the seating not very comfortable but we did enjoy our stay and found it ideal for touring and walking around the area A big plus was the access and the great shower

The property

Enveloped by picturesque views of the surrounding countryside and set amidst the Peak District National Park is this characterful, stone-built property, Pine Cottage.

The barn conversion which rests next to the owner’s home and just a short distance away from the bustling market town of Leek is perfect for a couple or a group of friends to call home as they explore this part of Staffordshire.

Soak up the view of The Roaches, a prominent rocky ridge, before entering into the contemporary-styled, social hub of the home, the open-plan living room, containing everything required for a self-catered holiday.

The kitchen comes well-equipped to cater to your culinary needs and is accompanied by a spacious dining table, where you can gather together to relish in some catch up time or pull open the map to plot the next day’s adventure.

Joining the space is an inviting sitting area, where you can look forward to curling up on the leather sofa with tune into the TV or get cosy on the armchair to delve into a good book.

Alternatively, if you are visiting during the summer months, take some drinks outdoors onto the private terrace area, complete with table and chairs, so that you can toast to a wonderful holiday whilst sat underneath the stars.

As the evening ends, catch your rest in one to the two bedrooms, each one boasting a neutral colour palette offering refreshing spaces to come back to, as well as good wardrobe storage and their own TVs, which are perfect for escaping the excitement of the rest of the group or for enjoying a lazy Sunday morning.

Choose between a plush king-size bedroom and a double bedroom, both of which are served by a sleek shower room, featuring a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Explore your surroundings further by talking a leisurely stroll through the village, where you will find a welcoming pub serving traditional ales and good home-cooked food, as well as a quaint tearoom, where you can delight in breakfast before lacing up your walking boots and exploring the plethora of paths in the area.

Be sure to make some time to explore the nearby Roaches, a true Peak District gem, home to 15-metre natural gritstone clefts and promising beautiful views across Leek and Tittesworth Reservoir.

Tittesworth Reservoir itself also promises to be an action-packed afternoon out, with opportunities for fishing and an array of watersports, ranging from sailing and kayaking, to raft building and paddle boarding.

Leek market town is also well worth a visit, where you can meander the stone-cobbled market square and admire the its well-preserved architecture before enjoying its wealth of independent shops and pick up delicious, local produce from the traditional butchers, bakers and greengrocers.

After completing the local area, travel further afield to explore the spa town of Buxton, the National Trust property of Biddulph Grange Garden and the historical landmark of Mow Cop Castle.

Those feeling more adventurous can spend the day at the famous Alton Towers theme park, pay a visit to Thor’s Cave or take two-wheels to cycle through the Peak District countryside.

Bring your loved ones to Pine Cottage to share an action-packed getaway together.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
