    About this property

    Rudyard 3.5 miles. This delightful cottage, a former shippon thought to date from the 16th century, sits in the grounds of the owners’ livestock farm and is attached to the end of farm buildings. This charming cottage is set in the beautiful rural Staffordshire countryside, less than 4 miles from picturesque Rudyard Lake. Cosy and welcoming to provide a lovely retreat for couples, small families, and those wishing to enjoy a horse riding holiday, this cottage near Rudyard is a delight for those wanting to discover the rugged Staffordshire Peak District and beyond. Set all on the ground floor and overlooking the pretty garden, you will find plenty of character in this Rudyard cottage, including a lovely vaulted ceiling, open stonework, and beams in the cosy sitting room, which is the perfect spot to relax in after a day of exploration. Patio doors lead from this Rudyard cottage to a patio with garden furniture and barbecue area; surrounded by farmland and countryside, this is just the place to enjoy this beautiful part of Staffordshire. Stabling is available, and there are plenty of beautiful circular rides in the area. Rudyard Lake offers boating, sailing, fishing, a cafe and hotel with bar and restaurant. Further afield, guests at this Rudyard cottage can enjoy the town of Leek, with its many antique shops, pubs and restaurants surrounded by beautiful Moorland countryside, not forgetting Tittesworth Reservoir and Alton Towers, both within easy reach. The perfect cosy Rudyard cottage to enjoy at any time of the year!

    Set in a lovely countryside location the charming village of Rudyard boasts an interesting claim to fame. Alice Macdonald and her fiancé Lockwood Kipling met on the shores of the nearby lake and so decided to name their first-born son after the place. Rudyard Kipling, born in 1865 went on to become a world renowned poet, novelist and short story writer. As well as this fateful lake, the Staffordshire village boasts excellent picnic spots, boating, walking and fishing opportunities as well as the steam railway. The thriving town of Leek is nearby and offers a variety of good pubs and restaurants as well as many antique shops. The beautiful Manifold Valley offers further walking opportunities with the "Manifold Trail" – an excellent route through superb scenery for walkers and cyclists.

    Mr Corden ‐ 1 Jun 2018
    "The cottage was just charming though quite small, 'bijou' in fact, but that did not detract from it's charm.Mr Lowe showed us round and ensured that we had everything we needed, then told us that we could go anywhere on the farm that took our fancy, we could not imagine that we would need anything in addition to what was in the cottage, it was extremely well found, and proved to be very comfortable indeed. My wife, who is extremely 'fussy' was heard to say "Excellent, excellent, excellent.", Three E's from her is praise indeed. What else can I say?"
    Mrs Cooper ‐ 1 Jun 2018
    "Inside the cottage had everything we needed. All the family were very friendly. The only minor drawback was the poor WiFi and internet signal (which we knew about in advance.)"

    "A wonderful location on a working farm, with great views both in the distance and also immediately outside the cottage, where there are hens, a cat and a couple of dogs all wandering around, together with a multitude of birds using the bird feeder. Inside the cottage had everything we needed. All the family were very friendly. The only minor drawback was the poor WiFi and internet signal (which we knew about in advance.)"

    "An excellent, well equipped cottage in a delightful position. The owners were helpful and friendly. One of the best cottages we have ever rented from you."
    Mrs Carol Slater, Burntwood, Staffordshire
    "A very clean well presentable cottage in a beautiful setting, there was lots to see and visit in area and nothing was too much trouble for the owners, who were helpful but not intrusive."
    Mrs Carole Millward, Harrogate, North Yorkshire
    "Made very welcome by members of the family who owned the property. Lovely cosy cottage with good amenities."
    Mrs Rose Callear, Leek,
    "The best holiday Cottage I've ever been in and I have recommended it to many friends."
    Ms Louise Newbery, Hitchin, Herts
    "The cottage is in a perfect setting and location. It is exceptionally well equipped with everything (and more) we could possibly have needed for a 'home away from home' stay in a warm and comfortable holiday home. The owners are only too happy to help with anything and made our stay a very happy one! We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to get away from their busy lives as you can completely unwind, get away from it all and enjoy the countryside experience."
    Mr George Lillie, Billericay, Essex
    "Owner is an excellent host. Nothing is too much trouble. "
    Mrs Janet Darlington, Telford, Shropshire
    "Welcoming hosts. Lovely location."
    Mr Geoffrey Crawford, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
    "Cosy, comfortable, well-equipped cottage which was far superior in every way to other properties we've previously rented. Beautiful location with lots of interesting places to visit locally without having to spend a lot of money. Friendly, welcoming owners who made sure we had everything we needed. We were allowed to watch lambing and there were lots of interesting birds which were attracted to the bird feeders near the patio. Weather was good too. We all had a great time."
    Mrs Jenny Rose-myers, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
    "The owners who live on the working farm were so welcoming. The real plus of this compact cottage is the access to the animals, we saw lambs being born and it's a dream for anyone wanting to see farming in action."
