    “The pictures of The Barn do not do it enough justice!”

    We visited for a few days at the end of October and the log fire came in hand when the nights became quickly colder. There's a gate just outside the property leading you into a field which takes you to endless walking possibilities which our two dogs loved! I love the little room as you enter the property, this came especially handy to dry off the dogs before letting them into the rest of the house! Although the owners house is connected to The Barn you feel like you are completely separate, in ...

    We visited for a few days at the end of October and the log fire came in hand when the nights became quickly colder. There's a gate just outside the property leading you into a field which takes you to endless walking possibilities which our two dogs loved! I love the little room as you enter the property, this came especially handy to dry off the dogs before letting them into the rest of the house! Although the owners house is connected to The Barn you feel like you are completely separate, in fact I don't think we saw the owners apart from receiving the key and dropping it off! The only family member we saw was Dara the dog who was keen to introduce herself to our dogs haha! This place is absolutely perfect for a little getaway to escape from life and just completely sit back and relax! I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Staffordshire countryside!

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 with a wood burner, which is a peaceful place to watch TV, then up a few steps to the open plan kitchen and dining area, and the ground-floor bedroom.

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.

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.
