    “We had a fabulous stay at Wayward ...”
    We had a fabulous stay at Wayward cottage which was well suited for what we were looking for. Cosy and comfortable accommodation located in quiet and peaceful countryside with stunning views. There were plenty walks to do from the doorstep so no need to take the car. Our hosts Nicola and Bern were very welcoming and helpful and locals are very friendly which adds to the experience. We would definitely recommend staying at Wayward.

About the location


Ashbourne 10 miles; Leek 7 miles.

The delightful rural village of Grindon is situated on the side of the beautiful Manifold Valley, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Like its well-known neighbour the Dove, the Manifold cuts a course through superb scenery and is a delight for both walkers and cyclists, with the "Manifold Trail" following the route of the old Leek to Manifold Light Railway. Grindon itself is a pretty stone-built village, and close by is Butterton with a butcher's and a pub, whilst further afield is the market town of Ashbourne. The surrounding area has many pubs offering a good range of food and Alton Towers is just a 30 minute drive away.
