  • “We had an amazing stay at Mamor cottage.”

    Such a cosy home from.home in a perfect location and amazing views. The owners Shirley and Maurice were lovely. So attentive ensuring we had everything we needed, provided walking maps for the area and our dog loved the sausages Shirley had cooked. A perfect break away, so peaceful and relaxing. A short stroll to the local pub where they serve lovely home cooked food and a great welcoming atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

The property

A delightful little cottage, set on the owner’s own small Shetland pony stud farm, surrounded by the beautiful Staffordshire countryside in the hamlet of Foxt, near Leek.

Cosy and welcoming throughout to provide a delightful little retreat, this Foxt cottage is the perfect spot for couples wanting to escape from the world!

With beautiful countryside views, a balcony accessed from the first floor landing, and welcoming open plan living, this Foxt cottage is lovely to return to after a day exploring the Peak District.

Outside, this Foxt cottage has the luxury of a huge garden, with large lawns to amble around, and a pretty patio, perfectly positioned to enjoy those Staffordshire countryside views.

The tiny hamlet of Foxt has a traditional village pub serving real ale and good food, whilst the nearby village of Ipstones has a village shop/Post Office and two village pubs.

Just a short drive from this delightful Foxt holiday cottage are Alton Towers, Chatsworth House, Ashbourne and Bakewell.

With many lovely walks from the doorstep and numerous outdoor activities on offer close by, this is a wonderful base for a self-catering cottage holiday, all year round.

About the location

FOXT

Leek 9 miles; Ashbourne 11 miles.

The scattered hamlet of Foxt lies in the beautiful Staffordshire moorlands in the Churnet Valley, on the southern edge of the Peak District National Park. This rural hamlet boasts an excellent village pub serving real ales and good food, as does the neighbouring hamlet of Froghall, whilst the village of Ipstones, also close by, has a village shop, Post Office and two pubs. Foxt offers many walks in every direction to suit all tastes, as well as picturesque cycle routes and the Manifold Way is close by. Within half an hour's drive guests can enjoy playing golf at five golf courses, the nearest being an excellent course at Whiston. The area offers many ancient relics from its industrial past, namely the Caldon Canal built in 1776 and restored in 1974, which runs through the Churnet Valley and visitors can also enjoy a ride on the Churnet Valley Steam Railway. Alton Towers is just a short drive away, as are the Staffordshire Potteries, the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek, racing at Uttoxetter and the majestic Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Lyme Park (as seen on TV's Pride and Prejudice) and Blackbrook Zoological Gardens. A great base for a memorable holiday at any time of year.
