On arrival at The Barn at Hill House in Elkstones near Leek in Staffordshire, you will already be delighted by the outstanding view; it really is the feeling of being on top of the world!

With its own entrance, this lovely property is attached to the owners' home but is completely private․ On entering this single-storey, semi-detached former barn from the spacious patio into the hallway, you will find a utility room with a washer/dryer and a useful space for coats and boots.

Carry on through into the stunning open living area, designed to take in those fabulous views, and you’ll discover a modern fitted kitchen and dining area.

Adding character to this space are unusual steel beams, and a warming gas woodburner-effect fire in the sitting area.

Completing this beautiful holiday home are four bedrooms, two king-size doubles with en-suite shower rooms and two twins which are zip/link and can be super king-size on request and are served by a family bathroom.

Outside there is an enclosed patio with table and bench seats and barbecue, along with a gate leading to steps and an enclosed field that's ideal for exercising dogs, outdoor play or relaxation.

The pretty village of Hartington, complete with a charming duck pond, a traditional cheese shop and other interesting shops and inns, is a short drive away.

The charming, cobbled village of Longnor is also within easy reach, offering a couple of village shops and a traditional pub where you can treat your guests to a tasty pub lunch.
