The property

This spacious, semi-detached cottage is attached to the owner’s home, on the edge of Denstone near Alton.

Built in the mid-19th century as part of the Alton Towers estate, this brick-built farmhouse retains the original beams and character, yet offers extremely light and spacious contemporary open plan living.

If you like your peace and tranquillity but don’t want to be miles from anywhere, then this is the cottage for you.

There’s a farm at the top of the track with an organic dairy herd, and it’s these ladies who will more than likely be your neighbours during your stay as they graze in the lush green pastures right outside your door.

As you enter the cottage there’s a warm place for the whole group, including the dogs, to dry off and park your boots.

Step through to the sitting room which is a peaceful place to read or play a little music, then up a few steps to the open plan kitchen and dining area.

The well-equipped kitchen with tiled flooring has a large arched window with beautiful countryside views and the dining table can easily seat everyone in your party.

The beautifully furnished sitting room with beamed ceiling and French windows out to the courtyard, is a fantastic place to relax, chat, snuggle up for a movie or just gaze upon the beautiful countryside.

If you just fancy a bit of “me time”, there’s tons of breathing space.

This abundance is repeated in the tastefully appointed first floor bedroom with an en-suite shower room, plus there is a second bedroom on the ground floor alongside a family bathroom.

With many attractions, eateries and inns close by, there’s much to tempt you away, though you may choose to enjoy the fantastic views without leaving this lovely retreat.
