The property

Idyllically positioned at the end of a peaceful residential crescent in the charming village of Rocester, in the picturesque county of Staffordshire, rests this delightful semi-detached holiday home, The Cornerhouse.

Sleeping up to four guests in a homely and a contemporary setting and enjoying close proximity to the thrills of Alton Towers, The Cornerhouse makes a lovely base for a family retreat to the wonderful countryside.

Park up on the gravelled driveway nestled alongside this lovely holiday home before unloading your bags and stepping inside to begin your staycation.

Kick off your shoes and store your coats in the handy hallway before following the hallway through to the galley-style kitchen, beautifully-appointed with a contemporary navy décor and fitted with a fantastic range of amenities, including a rustic range cooker to assist with preparing tasty treats, a dishwasher to ensure cleaning up is a breeze, and a handy washing machine and tumble dryer situated in the nearby utility; the perfect storage space for up to three bikes!

Gather your loved ones together at the table in the adjoining living/dining room to indulge in your culinary delights, throwing open the patio doors to let the fresh countryside breeze flow through the open-plan space.

Put your feet up and settle down for the evening with a sumptuous seat in front of the Smart TV as the rustic woodburning stove crackles nearby.

As the day draws to a close, climb the stairs to the first floor to prepare for bed with an indulgent soak amongst the bubbles in the family bathroom, stylishly tiled throughout, before retiring to either of two thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms to rest your head, with the choice between a king-size and a twin.

Take a break from doing the cooking and take the short stroll into the heart of Rocester where you can treat your loved ones to a delicious meal at the traditional country pub The Red Lion, or fuel your day with a hearty breakfast with a visit to AJs Diner.

There is also a fish & chip shop and an Indian restaurant in the village.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and enjoy a leisurely stroll along the banks of the River Churnet toward Denstone Hall Farm Shop & Café, where you can stock up on local artisan produce to enjoy from the comfort of your holiday home.

Spend a fun-filled day out visiting Alton Towers, the UK's biggest Theme Park, where you can expect thrills on the Wicker Man, make a splash on to Congo River Rapids, or meet the characters at CBeebies Land.

Whilst you're in the area, lace up your walking boots and embark on a two-footed adventure throughout the picturesque landscape of the Peak District National Park, where you can explore Thor's Cave, hidden deep within the cliff face, or tour the remarkable grounds of Chatsworth House, an elegant stately home adorned with lush gardens.

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.
