  • Mrs White

    “We have 2 large dogs and it was amazing having the fully enclosed field next to the beautifully manicured wrap around garden.”

    The cottage itself had been renovated to a high standard, and alot of thought had gone into the furnishings. The owner is a lovely lady and very easy to talk to, but in no way intrudes whilst you are there. Great walks.

About the location


Cheadle 3 miles; Ashbourne 10 miles.

A lovely unspoilt hamlet, Moneystone is an ideal base for the Churnet Valley and Staffordshire Moorlands or as a year-round destination to explore the Peak District National Park just to the north. Hills and valleys surround the hamlet and it is possible to walk for miles without crossing any roads. Moneystone overlooks the Churnet Valley in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands, at the south end of the Peak District. The area is a delight for walkers and cyclists, including two former railway routes: the 'Manifold Trail' following the route of the old Leek-to-Manifold Light Railway and the picturesque ‘Oakamoor to Denstone Greenway’. Nearby are Oakamoor, Ipstones, Ilam, good pubs and village shops, whilst further afield are the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek and of course Alton Towers theme park, just 3 miles away.
