The property

The 'Stables' at Martinslow Farm is a characterful bolt hole perched on the southern edge of the Peak district National Park, just one mile from the village of Waterhouses.

Use this cottage as your cosy base for discovering the breath-taking Peak District, which handily lies on your doorstep.

Be welcomed in to the property by the homely double bedroom, decorated in pleasant, neutral colours with stunning wooden beams.

It is a comforting spot to get your much-needed rest after an exhausting day of exploring your surroundings on foot or perhaps on two wheels.

The bedroom also comes with a convenient en-suite shower room.

Step up in to the spacious open-plan living area and be greeted by a modern, stylish kitchen area providing you with lovely countryside views to admire whilst cooking your meals.

Take a seat on the comfortable leather sofa, let your hair down and relax with your loved one whilst waiting for your delicious meal to cook.

The 'Stables' can also be enjoyed in the summer, sit out on the lawn area and take in the country air with a refreshing glass of wine.

Waterhouse area is a delightful area for your holiday with a handful of places to eat drink and shop, as well as excellent access to the surrounding National Park area.

Head to the nearby charming towns of Ashbourne (8miles) or Leek (7miles) and take advantage of their wide range of amenities and attractive architecture and for the thrill-seekers, a visit to well known Alton Towers (8mls) is a must.

The Churnet Valley Heritage Railway runs from Cheddleton (5miles) to Frogall and the Manifold Valley for walking or cycling is visible one mile distant.

The 'Stables' is a lovely cottage betwixt the mysteries of the Staffordshire Moorlands and the fantastic Peak District locations.

About the location


Ashbourne 7 miles; Leek 7 miles; Alton Towers 5 miles.

The village of Waterhouses lies between the market towns of Leek and Ashbourne on the southern fringes of the Peak National Park. The village was once the terminus of the Manifold Valley Light Railway - now the scenic Manifold Cycle Track, which winds its way through the picturesque valleys of the Rivers Hamps and Manifold. The track is flat and traffic free for cyclists, walkers and horse-riders. Waterhouses offers a selection of shops, pubs and places to eat. The famous Alton Towers Theme Park is only a short drive away.
