  • "Nice and comfy and had everything we needed for our one week stay."

    The bistro table and chairs at the front were appreciated enabling us to sit out and enjoy the warm evenings and the neighbours and passer-by's were all friendly

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage."

    Peaceful and quiet. Owners couldn't do enough to make stay as pleasant as possibe. Enjoyed morning ramble with dog across heath (super 360" views) opposite cottage. Only downside was no parking at property but always a spot couple minutes walk away. Situation and cottage made up for this. We were visiting family in the area but a superb base to explore the countryside and potteries.

    Thank you so much for your kind review, we look forward to hosting you again soon Property Owner

  • "Brilliant stay, just a couple of things, not enough utensils in the kitchen and the draining board and sink were a little dirty on arrival."

    This didn’t affect our stay.

    Hello Thank you for your comments, I hope you enjoyed your stay, if you could let me know what utensils are missing we will look at getting these into the property, we thought we had all the basics covered so apologies. We are aware that the sink in the property is a little dated and this will be replaced in the future, there are a couple of limescale stains that have had everything thrown at them but we cannot get them off, I can assure you though that the sink and drainers are thoroughly cleaned before every new guest arrives. Thanks Tom and Alison Property Owner

The property

Resting in the Staffordshire village of Tean, just a short drive away from the Peak District National Park, is The Foxes Den, a delightful end-of-terrace property.

This pet-friendly abode offers two guests a homely interior, a private courtyard, and a prime position near a host of amenities, whilst within reach of Alton Towers Theme Park, and the bustling city of Stoke-on-Trent.

Park up nearby and head into The Foxes Den, starting off in the kitchen, which is well-equipped to ease your self-catered stay, with the addition of a washing machine to keep on top of your holiday clothes.

Head outdoors to enjoy meals upon the bistro set, or discover the living/dining room, also home to a Smart TV, electric effect woodburning stove, and a plush sofa to relax from.

Complete your nightly routine in the bathroom, which features both a bath and shower, before making yourself at home in the spacious king-size bedroom.

Come morning, prepare for a day of adventure, starting off with a hike across Tean Hills, a visit to Kingsley Bird & Falconry Centre, discover the Peak Wildlife Park, or cross the border into the national park to tour Reynards Cave, followed by a nature-filled trek across the surrounding landscape.

The family-friendly attraction of Alton Towers is within driving distance, where you can expect an afternoon of fun and adrenaline, whilst Wootton Lodge, a grand 17th century country house, and Beamhurst Museum are both perfect for exploring if you're interested in history.

Reaching Stoke-on-Trent, be spoilt for choice when selecting your next activity, where you can enjoy a leisurely day out at Longton Park, explore the 725 acres of gardens, woodlands, shops and eateries at Trentham Estate, or venture towards The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery for exhibits of fine art and ceramics.

Spend quality time with The Foxes Den as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Stoke-on-Trent 10 miles.

Tean is a large village in Staffordshire, England, south-east of Stoke-on-Trent. The River Tean runs through the village, heading east towards Uttoxeter. The village is itself composed of two villages: Upper Tean (the larger of the two) and Lower Tean, forming part of the Checkley ward within the Staffordshire Moorlands district. The surrounding area is predominantly farming / rural, and it is a short drive into the southern edge of the Peak District. There are a number of pubs and shops, nurseries, a village hall, three churches, and a small park. Further afield lies Stoke on Trent; the city boasts many visitor centres, award winning museums, authentic factory tours, over 25 pottery factory shops and the exclusive Staffordshire Hoard. Visit the Trentham Estate with Italian Gardens, Shopping Village, Monkey Forest, and mile long lake. Head to the ever-popular Alton Towers Theme Park and its plethora of amusements for a thrilling day out, accessible via a short car journey. The city is located less than an hour from Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool and only one and a half hours direct from London Euston by train.
