  • "The Nook is a lovely, old, quirky house."

    It has been renovated to a high standard. However due to it being a quirky property there are lots of stairs and level changes. In the downstairs hall there are 2 level changes. This is by no means a criticism but having mobility issues myself I wanted to highlight this to others. It didn’t spoil my stay as I just took my time but this may cause issues for others. The kitchen is small, although very well laid out. The beds and bedrooms were clean and comfortable. It is in the centre of Leek with an Iceland within walking distance and other supermarkets slightly further away. Parking did not cause us an issue as we were away during the restricted periods. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were friendly and kept in contact. We would definitely consider staying there again and recommend this property to others.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay, yes the Nook is a 400 year old cottage so could be called “quirky” I guess. It is on three floors as the description says, so if you are of limited mobility it may not be the best choice for you. Property Owner

  • "A lovely property centrally located in Leek and ideal for our girl's get-together."

    The Nook is very comfortable and has a delightful homely feel. The little festive touches for Christmas, complete with a decorated and lit tree ensured a warm welcome We enjoyed a wonderful weekend; the only suggestions we have are: 1. Kitchen - well appointed and stocked but both frying pans look like they need replacing. We weren't happy to use them even after giving them a clean. 2. May we suggest that a window blind is put up for the shower room to provide reassurance of privacy. Tony's and Zoe's communication was excellent and the responded promptly and helpfully to any queries. Otherwise The Nook was just the ticket to provide the home comforts that we value when we have opportunity to get away together.

    Glad you had an enjoyable stay at the Nook. We are always upgrading and renewing the facilities. All kitchen pans etc have recently been replaced again. Property Owner

  • "Ok for a short stay."

    However for a weeks stay the equipment needs upgrading, a good suzed refridgerator, a washer, a tumble dryer, a dishwasher. Also, there were no mugs, no trays, no teapot, no bowls.

    Thank you for your feedback. I can assure you there are plenty of mugs ( 10 cappuccino, 10 espresso, 10 tea cups) all on the shelf above the kettle, sorry you couldn’t see them. Im also sorry that you missed the use of a washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher but it clearly shows in the description that they are not provided at the property. All appliances are brand new and there are in fact 3 fridges (2 in the kitchen and 1 in the study to make life easy for garden use) in the property that capacity wise add up to more than a standard large fridge.

Located in the heart of Leek, a bustling market town in Staffordshire is The Nook, a delightful, four-bedroom home.

Just paces away from a hub of activity, including a plethora of shops, tearooms, pubs, and attractions, The Nook also rests near the Peak District National Park, making it a wonderful base for a family of eight looking to explore the region.

Unload your belongings to the roadside, before parking in a nearby public car park.

Step indoors to be greeted by the homely sitting room, complete with beams overhead, lovely wooden floors, plush seating, a Smart TV, and an electric fire.

Continue through to a lovely little nook, the perfect reading spot to break away from the family, whilst the first floor also houses a further snug to unwind and enjoy some peace and quiet.

As the night unfolds, catch some rest from one of four bedrooms on offer, including a king-size, a twin (zip/link), and two second-floor doubles, the master featuring a delightful electric fire.

Awaken to a long soak in the contemporary bathroom, or a refreshing shower, before preparing to explore the town, with a wide variety of amenities to take advantage of to ease your self-catered stay.

Within the vicinity you'll also locate the Brindley Water Mill to tour, Ladderedge Country Park for a nature-filled hike, Leek Golf Club, ideal for golf fanatics, and Rudyard Lake, a lovely landscape for a day of boating.

All of this awaits at The Nook.

The hillside market town of Leek, known as “The Queen of the Moorlands” is situated on the western side of The Peaks and is surrounded by lovely Moorland countryside.
