Leek 1.5 miles.
A lovely stone-built, detached barn conversion complete with stable and paddock, set within the grounds of the owner’s home and working livery, less than two miles from the market town of Leek.
Boasting fantastic views of the Staffordshire Peaks and Roaches Rocks, this lovely cottage offers rustic and original features on the outside and contemporary furnishings inside.
Although this cottage might be of particular interest to horsey types, it’s also a great place for families and groups who want to enjoy the fantastic scenery and take part in the many activities that are available within easy reach.
There are three comfortable bedrooms with original roof beams on the first floor, all of which overlook the stables, and the modern bathroom is on the ground floor, with a rainfall shower.
Also on the ground floor is a farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, which is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a hearty meal, and the spacious and light sitting room is a delightful, sociable space where you can sit and debate the following day’s agenda.
Outside, the enclosed garden with lawn and patio is a great place to sit, whilst watching the sun set over the breathtaking scenery, plus you’re welcome to take your horse on holiday with you as there’s a well-equipped stable livery and paddock within the grounds.
There are many shops and pubs within easy reach in Leek, and there’s also a restaurant at the end of the drive.
Alternatively, for a memorable night in, the owner is happy to arrange for a wine tasting session, or even a personal chef to cook you a sumptuous dinner.
There are two lakes nearby for walks, and the more daring types can climb the imposing rocks that are just a short trek away.
This superb cottage is such a lovely place to stay, with lots to see and do all year round.
Three bedrooms: 1 x king-size double (zip/link, can be twin on request), 1 x double, 1 x single. Ground floor bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with electric woodburner-effect stove.
