    “This was our second visit to this most charming retreat.”

    The cottage has such a relaxed ambience and the views from the lounge are so serene it’s no surprise to us we’ll be booking here again.

    The cottage has such a relaxed ambience and the views from the lounge are so serene it’s no surprise to us we’ll be booking here again. With Ashbourne just down the road topping up on supplies in no problem, and finally not to forget you have the National Park on your doorstep.

The property

The Cottage can be found on the owner's small holding, on the southern fringes of the wondrous Peak District National Park, with the fascinating market towns of Leek and Ashbourne at your fingertips.

Boasting cosy and traditional accommodation for four people, and with so much going on in the surrounding area, this is the perfect getaway for friends, families and couples alike to come together and enjoy.

Enter the property and discover the wonderful shower room to your right, a handy utility cupboard sits adjacent, housing a washing machine.

A country cottage-style kitchen comes next, featuring a rustic wooden dining table and period quarry tiled flooring.

Step through into a wonderfully welcoming sitting room, benefiting from attractive exposed beams and stonework and concluding alluringly with a fabulous woodburning stove for those chilly nights in.

Take the stairs to reach the first floor, the landing is split-level, with either side leading you to a welcoming bedroom.

Choose from a well-presented double and a lovely twin bedroom, designed to accompany parties of all kinds.

A peaceful garden can be found to the front of The Cottage, sit here with a refreshing drink and soak up the sun whilst admiring the superb scenery surrounding you.

The Peak District National Park is right on your doorstep should you seek breath-taking walking and cycling paths, and a number of fascinating market towns and villages just waiting to be uncovered.

Ashbourne and Leek are both well worth a day of exploring, both boasting a fabulous range of eateries, restaurants and shops, housed in a range of attractive buildings.

A short drive will take you to the popular theme park of Alton Towers for a great day out.

An enticing barn conversion situated ideally for exploring this region of remarkable natural beauty.

About the location


Ashbourne 7 miles; Leek 7 miles; Alton Towers 5 miles.

The village of Waterhouses lies between the market towns of Leek and Ashbourne on the southern fringes of the Peak National Park. The village was once the terminus of the Manifold Valley Light Railway - now the scenic Manifold Cycle Track, which winds its way through the picturesque valleys of the Rivers Hamps and Manifold. The track is flat and traffic free for cyclists, walkers and horse-riders. Waterhouses offers a selection of shops, pubs and places to eat. The famous Alton Towers Theme Park is only a short drive away.
