  • "Lovely stay at the Corner House over the Christmas break, with some really nice festive touches (a real tree!"

    ). The house is lovely and cosy, well-equipped and super-handy for visiting friends and family, with great walks nearby too. The midweek takeaway from the local Indian was an . unexpected treat - one of the best I've had in ages!

    Hi Jill, Many thanks for finding the time to leave us your feedback. Given the premium our guests pay over the Christmas period, we try and make the house even more special. We are glad you apprecited this. we hope to see you again soon. Tony & Sue Property Owner

  • "As soon as we walked into The CornerHouse in Rocester we knew we'd found our spiritual home."

    Beautifully decorated, maintained, furnished and curated, this house in "the JCB village" put a smile on our faces straight away. The flowers on the dining table, a welcome card from Tony & Sue and the beautiful welcome pack, with dog treats, made us feel very welcome indeed. The garden is a super size and really pretty with the, initially shared, driveway opening out into a private, gated, parking area that is a real asset. The garden is fully enclosed for our doggy pals, with plenty of sniffs to explore. We had a couple of minor issues, one being with the smart tv which needed a retune, but Tony was super responsive and came over to sort it out really quickly, which was brilliant! The village is a delight and it benefits from some of the JCB money that comes into the area. A walk around the grounds of the JCB World Headquarters site is well worth it. Although with the extensive birdlife in the grounds and on the lake you do need to keep your dog on a lead. You might even see the boss man arriving or leaving in his helicopter, as we did, how the other 0.1% live huh. Tony and Sue have thought of so many little extras in the house, things like digital scales in the kitchen if you want to cook "properly". The kind of thing that we bring from home, not usually expecting to find them! The lounge / diner is very comfortable and a good size. We didn't get to benefit from the log burner as we were there during a late summer heatwave but we can confirm that the central heating on our last, chilly, evening is super efficient. The kitchen is a delight, and very well equipped, although I would suggest that some tiles or a piece of glass are put up behind the stove top to save the beautifully painted wall from cooking splashes. The two bedrooms are super comfy with plenty of wardrobe and storage space. The bathroom has been well fitted out, although the fixed glass screen on the R shaped bath can make reaching the taps a little bit tricky on the old back, but that's a minor hassle overall. The bed linen and towels are sumptuous, together with proper flannels and liquid soap, bubble bath etc all in beautiful glass bottles. We suspect the products may come from the Eco shop in Uttoxeter but we can neither confirm nor deny that! I think Sue's keeping her sources a closely guarded secret myself ; - ) This part of the country is stunning, however we were somewhat taken aback at the relative lack of dog friendliness locally. Although Denstone Farm shop is lovely being banished with your dog to a wooden hut away from the main building that is quite literally labelled "The Dog House" isn't our idea of dog friendliness. The Ramblers Retreat slightly further afield does the same, we didn't stay there for brunch in the end because sitting in a cramped wooden shed on a cold, wet day in September really wasn't our idea of fun. We can, however, thoroughly recommend BEAR on Uttoxeter High Street. It is properly dog friendly with water bowls easily to hand for you to fill up for your pooch. Over the border in Derbyshire Chatsworth House is really dog friendly too and although there is a separate area for dog owners to sit with their hounds to eat in the Courtyard cafe you don't feel like a pariah. Indeed most of the sofas in that area were being taken up by non dog owners on the day we visited as they are so comfy! Although naturally you can't take your dog into the main house they are very welcome in the shop. A very sensible marketing trick in my humble opinion because you're far more likely to spend money somewhere where you're made to feel welcome. We didn't pay to go in the cultivated garden but the surrounding parkland makes for a great, lead on, dog walk after lunch. The Duncombe Arms in Ellastone in the next village along to Rocester is also very dog friendly, with brilliant service. We had a delicious evening meal there on the Sunday evening. All in all we can heartily recommend The Cornerhouse, we hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Thank you again to Tony and Sue for their hospitality.

    The cottage was so clean and very nicely furnished. The kitchen had everything you could need and having a utility room with washing machine and tumble was great.

Recommend The Duncombe Arms for eating but book in advance, Afternoon tea in the dog room at Denstone Farm was nice but be aware that the shop is not dog friendly anywhere inside. Our two dogs enjoyed running around and sniffing in the garden and we all enjoyed watching the bird life. We will be back as there was so much to see in the area.

    We had a very comfortable stay even though the weather was not the best. The kitchen was well equipped only one addition needed was a pair of tongs to help turn things over but personal choice. The greeting pack was very good, cupcakes, crisps, a bottle of plonk and a pint of milk, a great start. The drive way was tight for our car to get in with the warning lights going off as I gingerly proceeded through each time. Plenty of room to turn once inside and a great garden, not overlooked. The beds and bedding were clean, comfortable and the heating worked well to keep us cosy in the evening. The bath/shower worked well, only thing I think should be passed on to the owners as they may be unaware is the bath waste takes a long time to flow away leaving one paddling after a shower. The location is central to get to most parts of the peak district easily, situated in a quiet corner of a housing estate. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and yes would recommend.

    Many thanks for finding the time to give your feedback. It is very much appreciated. We are glad you, despite the weather, enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon.

    It didn't disappoint! There was a great welcome pack from Tony including treats for the dogs! Thank you. It's located in a very quiet cul-de-sac and is only 5 minutes walk to the centre of the village.

    It is a delightful and cosy property with pretty much everything available that you could ask for. We took loads of stuff with us ‘just in case’ and we really didn’t need to! It is beautifully decorated and furnished and we felt at home immediately. The utility room and lovely secure garden was such a bonus with our 2 dogs, especially when the weather wasn’t so great!! We will almost certainly go back as our daughter lives nearby and sometimes she just might not want us in her house for our whole stay!!! Tony and Sue left us lots of little treats and even put up a christmas tree, hung some lights and left us a lovely vase of flowers! When I made an enquiry about something they were quick to respond and would have come to help if necessary (not needed in the end!!) It is perfectly placed for Alton Towers, Uttoxeter races, a short drive to the Peak District and lots of lovely local walks too!! The JCB lake is in easy walking distance of the property and is ideal for a not too long and not too dirty dog walk. The village of rocester itself has a friendly pub, a tasty chippy (which we sampled) and also an Indian takeaway and a local shop (which we didn’t!!). There is a farm shop in the next village and the pies from there were amazing!! It’s only a ten minute drive to Uttoxeter where you have tesco, Waitrose, asda plus lots of smaller shops! All in all, a perfect place to base yourself!

  • "Hi Tony & Sue, we would just like to say that your holiday house was probably the best equipped we have stayed in."

    Loved your soaps and washing liquids in the glass bottles. Also loved the pancake Tuesday jar with all ingredients; the treats for our dog, the bottle of wine, the cakes, I could go on...However the most important of all the bed, bed linen, and pillows were the best we have every slept in away from home. Thanks again. Helen John and Harley

Take a break from doing the cooking and take the short drive to The Tavern at Denstone (1 mile) or the Crown at Marston Montgomery (2 miles) where you can treat your loved ones to a delicious meal at a traditional country pub.

There is also a fish & chip shop and an Indian restaurant in the village, if you prefer a takeaway option.

About the location

ROCESTER

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.
