  • "Great location and lovely surroundings."

    Well stocked with all amenities. Just some fans would have been helpful in each room due to our changing climate and a slightly better mattress in the ground floor bed. But overall an excellent stay!

  • "We stayed here back in November 2012 and The Rindle is as lovely now as it was back then."

    It is a very comfortable and beautifully maintained house with great communal space. Thoughtfully stocked equipment-wise (we didn't want for anything), the helpful and friendly owners are on-hand if you do need them. Surrounded by amazing countryside and a great pub less than 5 minutes walk away, what's not to like?

  • "We had a really great stay here, the living area is perfect for being social and being able to seat everyone together."

    The rooms had a good mix of single and double beds so those who didn't want to share a bed could have one of their own. The place was spotless. The owners of the property were really friendly and helpful, and were on hand if needed. I would definitely recommend staying here

  • "Super stay over the Easter week, the house was a great size, plenty of space for all 14 people."

    Very clean and was well stocked of equipment for catering on a large scale. Great location for cycling, walking (The Roaches) and close to Alton Towers, very close to a local pub. The owner was very helpful.

  • "We were welcomed warmly by the owners, and had a fantastic time at the Rindle."

    Despite being a large family group the accommodation was spacious and worked perfect for the mix ages (1 x grandparents, 2 lots of parents and kids aged 9,8,6,5,1). Despite saying internet could be intermittent, we had no issues (thank goodness). We visited the Tittlesworth Water (park, coffee shop, lovely walk - very family friendly - 7/10 - water was low!). Three Horseshoes (Carvery - looked nicer outside than it was on the inside 5/10). Peak Wildlife park (ideal for under 10's - spot on for us, great activities, lovely staff, even on a wet day, ideal - 9/10). Lazy Trout - went twice for food (could have gone more - delicious!) and for a couple of quick drinks 10/10. Rudyard Lake - beautiful peaceful setting, train very reasonable. Again great family time. 8/10. Gullivers Kingdom (we made the most of it. Not buggy friendly, tired, but some good rides, and would not take much to make this place amazing. Not enough parking! 5/10). Poole's Cavern (really interesting tour - for all ages. Walked up to Solomon's temple too - v windy! 8/10). Primo Piano, Leek (great food, very accommodating, don't open until 6, which is a bit late for our littlies! 9/10). The Roaches and Tea room (Amazing walk on the doorstep! Went up the south side, past Roaches Hall - kids loved the mild challenge and we were generally protected from the wind! Tea Rooms were lovely - we should have made it a main meal here, as we didn't need dinner after great service - 9/10). We had a great week, and we are already discussing coming back again!

    .. Here were facilities for us all. The upper floor had rooms and bathrooms for the family members without children, whilst downstairs the four youngsters and their parents had their own rooms, bathroom and access to kitchen, sitting room and TV...when they had the inevitable early start.... Suited all of us perfectly... Thank you, Suzanne for the flowers, wine and choclates that greeted us!!! (Along with your personal welcome.)

    The open plan living and dining area worked really well. It was a nice touch when we arrived to find a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine left by the owners. We were made very welcome and when there was a slight problem with the hot water system, it was sorted out immediately by the owner's son and daughter. The Rindle is in a lovely location close to lots of things to see and do.

  • "The Rindle is a fantastic house."

    We were a party of 13 with 4 teenagers and a 6yr old. There is so much room in the house. The kitchen facilities were fab. House was spotless. Beds were comfy. The owner is a lovely lady who left fresh flowers, wine and chocolates for our arrival. There's plenty to do in the local area. Children had great fun on two days at the local water sports place. We had two days at Alton Towers which was a 30 min drive. The Peak Wildlife Park was about 20 mins drive. Local shops are 4 miles. Great pub within 5 min walking distance. Would definitely go back here!
