The property

A charming three storey, characterful cottage set on a cobbled street within the town of Leek.

Over six hundred years old, and still retaining traditional features, couples or families can enjoy a memorable stay.

Step into the cosy entrance, where you will be welcomed by a lounge, tied together with a sofa, arm chairs and a feature log burner.

Accessorized and laced with detail, this room is perfect for resting morning through to night time.

A dining area lies close by, ideal for breakfast, or sitting down for an evening meal.

Ornamental features and low lighting, create a warming atmosphere all round.

To the other side, a well presented kitchen is great for preparing those home cooked meals, and also contains a once up on a time 'bakers oven' area for an enchanting finish.

A steep stairway is tucked into the corner of the sitting room, and takes you up to a double bedroom with pretty bedding and overhead wooden beams.

A feature fireplace and decorative extra's, create a friendly space to sleep the night away.

Close by, a bathroom brings further charm, with unique tiles and a fresh design that compliments the layout well.

Another set of stairs sweeps across to a second double bedroom hosting a serene yet almost historic overtone; an inviting place to read a book, before drifting into a good nights sleep.

When the weather is pleasant, why not rest outside in the shared courtyard, home to a pretty table and chairs, surrounded by lovely plants.

The town of Leek is sure to impress, with a selection of shops including vast antique emporiums, restaurants, a local park and real ale pubs.

Tatton Park, Styal County Park and Gawsworth Hall are only a short drive away.

This is a unique retreat in a desirable location.
