The property

This incredible ground floor apartment is set below the owners’ own home beside the historic Splashy Mill, one of eleven mills in the conservation area of the Lower Moddershall Valley.

Beautifully-appointed throughout, with a large open plan sitting and dining area, this Lower Moddershall apartment is an ideal romantic getaway for couples looking to explore this historic region.

Set solely over the ground floor, this Lower Moddershall annexe has a double bedroom boasting a lovely en-suite, and in the sitting room, a woodburning stove that you can relax by after a day exploring the network of footpaths which lead right from the apartment.

Large French windows open into the owners’ garden, with views of the mill and water wheel next door.

Outside this Staffordshire apartment, a pretty private patio overlooks the historic mill, where you can sit and wonder at the past, and plan what to do tomorrow.

The scattered little village of Moddershall begins the Mill route in this wonderful conservation area, and just two miles away, the historic market town of Stone offers the chance to discover the further history of the area.

A little further afield is Alton Towers, where you can enjoy a very different day out, and the Staffordshire Peak District is just waiting to be explored!

This is the perfect base for a romantic break; throw in the mix of history, the nearby theme park, and the Peak District National Park, and you find that this Lower Moddershall apartment offers a varied holiday at any time of the year.

About the location


Stone 2 miles; Cheadle 8 miles; Leek 12 miles; Uttoxeter 15 miles.

The delightful little village of Moddershall is situated in beautiful Staffordshire, close to the lovely town of Stone. This pretty village boasts no less than 11 mills in the conservation area of the Lower Moddershall Valley, with numerous walks to enjoy, particularly those that link the mills together. The mills are full of history, with links to the famous pottery industry of the aptly named Potteries close by, and a short drive away is the historic market town and canal town of Stone. Dating back to the year 670, the town oozes history and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Now, it offers a lovely array of amenities and shops, and pubs and restaurants serving delicious food. Visit the nearby Churnet Valley Railway, originally opened in 1849 and now a lovely attraction for steam enthusiasts and families alike! If it is the mill route you wish to follow, then Cheddleton Flint Mill is another prime example of Staffordshire's industrial past, a flint-grinding watermill previously used for supplying the pottery industry and links in the Moddershall Mills. The Potteries are only 4 miles away with its interesting working factories offering tours, as well as the Gladstone Pottery Museum in Longton, which is the nearest pottery town to Stone. The Potteries Museum, located in Stoke-on-Trent city centre and offers an opportunity to find out about the history of the area and see a world famous collection of locally produced pottery. Also the historic Wedgwood Ceramic collection is located at the Wedgwood factory in Barlaston only three miles away. Then there is nearby Leek, surrounded by lovely moorland countryside, and Alton Towers is easily accessible. Throw the many cycle routes, rock climbing opportunities on the Roaches, and the wealth of historic houses in to the mix, and visitors will be returning again and again!
