    “Really lovely little cottage on the edge of the Peak District - smaller than we expected it to be but was perfect for us as a couple.”

    Warmed up very quickly with the powerful little heaters even on chilly October days. Very basic kitchen - no baking trays or an oven mitt that we could find - but we managed and it wasn't too much of a problem. Bed was very comfortable and everything felt very clean. Lovely owners living next door - popped round to tell us about local amenities and dog-friendly attractions which was a nice touch. Would love to come back in the future to get to experience more of this beautiful region of the UK ...

The property

Boasting a delightful position on the edge of the Peak District National Park, with superb views of the famous Hencloud, is this 18th century, stone-built dwelling, Old Post Office Barn.

This heart-warming retreat is perfectly positioned for a couple looking to explore the delights of the countryside, as well as the bustling market town of Leek, where you will find a wealth of shops, pubs and cafes to suit a couple of all ages and tastes.

The interior enjoys a bright colour palette, carefully selected furnishings and all the essentials you and your partner will need for a week-long stay.

Kick off your muddy walking boots at the foot of the door, before relaxing into your evening within the quaint, open-plan living room, where you can cosy up on the sofa or enjoy the surrounding views from the window with a cup of tea in hand.

Joining the sitting area, is the compact, yet well-equipped kitchen, where you are able to prepare your own home-cooked meals before settling down to enjoy an evening of board games, getting lost within a book or tuning into the TV.

After an action-packed afternoon making the most of the Peak District’s vast array of pastimes, look forward to a refreshing shower within the elegantly-styled shower room before resting your head within the double bedroom, where you will find a refreshing interior, complete with ample storage and a day bed.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful base, venture to the market town of Leek, where a vast array of amenities awaits you, as well as attractions including the number of museums, galleries, markets and the Brindley Mill.

Whatever the time of the year, this superb countryside location offers some fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling, wild-life watching and brushing up on the local history.

From here, venture a little further to the spa town of Buxton, where you can spend time at Poole’s Cavern, the Pavilion Gardens and Solomon's Temple.

Old Post Office Barn is a refreshing retreat that you and your partner will want to return to year after year.

About the location

LEEK

Buxton 12 miles; Ashbourne 15 miles.

The hillside market town of Leek, known as “The Queen of the Moorlands” is situated on the western side of The Peaks and is surrounded by lovely Moorland countryside. The town has a charming cobbled market place and there are many examples of fine Victorian architecture influenced by William Morris - a reminder of the town’s prosperity when it was renowned as a silk manufacturing centre. Today Leek offers a wide selection of shops including vast antique emporiums, a good selection of restaurants, a local park and leisure facilities and real ale pubs. Situated close to Three Shires Head, the meeting point of the counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, Leek is near to Chatsworth House, Buxton Opera House and Gawsworth Hall, plus Alton Towers is within driving distance.
