  • "The cottage made a great base for trips to the local area including Biddulph Grange and Trentham Gardens."

    The well stocked fridge, freezer and kitchen was a lovely, and welcome, surprise.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely property with welcoming hosts."

    It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and stocked with a generous supply of groceries. It is located in a very peaceful and quiet part of the countryside close to the Peak District and we have no hesitation in recommending a stay at this property.

  • "Lovely owners providing first class facilities & service."

    Very kindly provided with food items which were gracefully received. The cottage is home from home. Very clean, comfortable, roomy & cosy. Lovely views & location. We did miss the sign for the cottage when we first arrived so do follow the owners instructions once they contact you. Mobile & internet reception a little hit & miss at times, you just have to find the right spot. Great location for accessing walking country in Peak District. Lanes are narrow in places so be mindful when driving especially with large vehicles.

  • "A lovely property in a peaceful and stunning location but still close enough to all amenities."

    Well equipped property that has everything you need. Extremely clean and comfortable. Kitchen stocked on arrival not only with essentials but with other 'goodies' too which was a lovely surprise. Janet really was the perfect host, providing a very warm welcome and always available if required. Would highly recommend this property, exceptional value for money.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, in a great location to access the attractions in Staffordshire and the Peak District."

    The hosts were lovely and thoughtful stocking the fridge and freezer with essentials, as well as a food cupboard. They thought of everything when they learnt we were staying with a young baby. We only wished we could have stayed longer, but we will next time.

  • "This holiday cottage was by far the best we have ever stayed in."

    The attention to detail to make things comfortable for us was wonderful. Such friendly people and very informative about the local area. We watched the baby lambs being fed too which was a new experience for us all even though we live in in a country village. We would certainly recommend the Granary to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a cottage that has everything you could ask for. Even a fully stocked fridge, freezer and good selection of foods in the cupboards. As you probably realise by now we could not fault this holiday accommodation at all

  • "It is the second time we have stayed at the Granary."

    The cottage is always warm and cosy, even when there is hail and sleet on the moor. We did light the log fire on a couple of evenings, mainly because it was a fun thing to do rather than because we needed the extra warmth. The cottage is always spotlessly clean, very well equipped and has the best stocked fridge of anywhere we have ever stayed. It is a great location for visitor attractions in the Cheshire and Staffordshire borders. We would have no hesitation in booking the cottage again next time we need accommodation in the area.

  • "This is great place to stay, a beautiful setting, clean and comfortable and Janet and Cynthia go the extra mile to make your stay perfect."

    The provision of more than essential food on arrival means that you don't have to worry about not having anything to eat and drink when you arrive. The everyday staples such as cereal, pasta cooking oil, etc. not to mention the treats such as chocolate biscuits and ice cream was a lovely gesture. The kitchen is very well equipped. The cottage is spacious and extremely comfortable in both living rooms and bedrooms, there are games, DVDs and books to amuse you in the evenings or if you get stuck with bad weather. I would highly recommend The Granary and we will certainly stay here again when back in the area.

  • "What a fantastic place to stay."

    Comfy, spotlessly clean and top quality. Janet and family as perfect hosts had thought about everything, even leaving the kitchen well stocked. The Granary is excellently placed for exploring 3 different countries; Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire and all they have to offer. Then going home the comfort of the Granary, kicking off muddy boots in the boot room to settle in front of the log burner, perfection. We would firmly recommend this property to everyone.

    The peace and quiet is heavenly there are no busy roads just the surrounding sounds of farm animals and birds.

    This is one of the best-equipped cottages we have ever stayed in - like a true home-from-home. Janet, who owns the cottage, was so welcoming and had thoughtfully stocked the fridge for us.

The cottage also has a great range of toys which kept the little ones happy and entertained. There was also a good playpark around 1 mile away. The area is beautiful with surrounding views and hopefully we'll explore more next time.
