The property

2 Dove Cottage is a delightful, former schoolhouse nestled in the heart of Rocester, Staffordshire.

This family-friendly cottage is conveniently located near a wealth of amenities and attractions, making it the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area, complete with a stylish, open-plan living space, sought-after off-road parking, and an enclosed courtyard.

Park up to the rear and travel through the garden, offering a secure space to store your bikes, before gathering around the patio furniture for an alfresco affair.

Head indoors and be greeted by the living space, with original beams overhead, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dedicated dining area, and plenty of plush seating on offer, perfect for sinking into as you relish in a family games night.

As day turns into night, catch some rest from either the lovely twin bedroom or the master king-size, the latter benefiting from an en-suite bathroom.

A sleek shower room completes the home, providing convenience for all guests.

In the village itself you can look to stock up on the essentials or even dine out, with The Red Lion pub a stone’s throw away, whilst a selection of takeaways is also available if you’d prefer to stay in.

Set near JCB Lakes, and the JCB Golf and Country Club, relaxing days strolling the countryside, a round of 18 holes, and the chance to sample the in-house menu can be expected.

With Alton Towers and its thrill-seeking amusements a car journey away, plan your day by touring the aquarium, taking to the waterpark, or riding the roller coasters of the theme park itself, offering activities for all of the family.

In the nearby town of Ashbourne, you can take a leisurely stroll around the stunning 20-acre hilltop park with far-reaching views, or explore the spectacular 16th-century Ashbourne Hall, before returning home for a movie night.

Whether you're looking for adventure, culture, or relaxation, a stay at 2 Dove Cottage guarantees something for everyone.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Alton Towers 5 miles; Uttoxeter 5 miles; Ashbourne 10 miles.

A pretty little village, Rocester lies on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border, located on a triangle of land between the River Churnet and River Dove. The site of a Roman fort exists today and the village was also mentioned in the Domesday Book. Rocester is home to the famous JCB factory, and the company has landscaped the surrounding area to provide some wonderful walks with some interesting sculptures around the site and the nearby parkland. Most significant of these is The Fossor, which is made entirely of digger parts and is a powerful representation of JCB. Rocester is halfway along the Staffordshire Way which runs the length of Staffordshire and is also at the start of the Limestone Way which goes to Matlock. Close to Rocester is the lovely market town of Ashbourne, and just a short drive away is Alton Towers, with fun for all the family. Explore either the Staffordshire or Derbyshire part of the Peak District National Park with historic houses, market towns, moorland, rolling hills and valleys, all easily accessible from Rocester.
