  • “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). ...

    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!
