    Meg’s Cottage can be found on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands and Derbyshire Peaks in the picturesque conservation village of Butterton. Situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the detached cottage is an eco-friendly stable conversion, full of character with the staircase and beams crafted from reclaimed wood from the Royal Doulton Pottery. Antique furniture including a magnificent 18th-century oak chest and farmhouse oak table add to the wonderful eclectic and individual style, as do rustic ornaments and the farmhouse style kitchen, handmade by the owner himself. The property offers flagstone flooring with underfloor heating on the ground floor, and two en-suite bedrooms with super kingsize beds (can be twin on request) dressed with crisp Egyptian cotton linen. Outside, the private lawned garden and patio offers truly beautiful and unobstructed views across the surrounding fields and peaks. Sounds of the stream and birdsong play in the background and the view of the sunset is spectacular. Meg’s Cottage is perfect for a quiet hideaway, away from life’s hustle and bustle but also as a base for more energetic activities. The Peak District offers excellent walking, climbing and cycling, and with the Manifold Valley, Dovedale, The Roaches, High Peak and Tissington Trail all in the local area you really are spoilt for choice. Finally for those thrill seekers, Britain’s premier theme park Alton Towers is just 20 minutes by car. Leek, with its supermarkets, is about 15 minutes’ drive. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 180 yards.

    "Great week at Megs Cottage"
    Sue ‐ 19 Sep 2019
    "Just back from an enjoyable week. Megs cottage made it that extra bit special."
    Graham ‐ 14 Sep 2019
    "Great location for our stay. The Jarvis Arms is a must for a meal. Just a couple of miles away in Onecote"
    Jo ‐ 26 Aug 2019
    "A good place for a short break holiday. Outstanding views and brilliant walking from the doorstep."
    John ‐ 24 Jul 2019
    "The cottage was clean, well equipped, quiet and we were able to have a very restful holiday. Whilst there is a pub nearby, which had recently changed hands, that provided a pleasant lunch shops were some distance away in Leek but we were aware of this when we booked and were therefore able to take this into account when planning the holiday. It would have helped if we had been aware that there was no mobile phone signal for some distance around the cottage although wi-fi was available."

    "Megs Cottage has to be up there with our very favourite places to stay! We and our little dachshund received a warm welcome from Andrea who advised us of lovely places to visit and places to eat and every comfort was catered for in this well equipped, cosy, charming and characterful cottage. There are beautiful views from every aspect and total peace and quiet and we slept so well in our super king-size beds with ensuite shower rooms.We enjoyed many lovely evening meals at nearby pubs/restaurants which were all a short drive from the cottage and can confidently recommend Mehek, The Jervis Arms, The Reform Inn and The Manifold Inn. We had a wonderful holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend Megs Cottage to anyone and hopefully, we will return one day. 5 well deserved stars from us! Thank you Andrea! ?"

    "The cottage is beautifully furnished and full of character. It had everything we needed. The views are spectacular. It's a shame the village pub has now closed but plenty of nice places within a short drive. Just a note for owners of small dogs, although Megs Cottage is dog friendly the fencing is not secure for terrier sized dogs and you may need a means of blocking access to the wooden stairs. We enjoyed our stay very much despite unseasonably bad weather, Andrea was very welcoming and the cottage was cosy."
    Mike ‐ 29 May 2019
    "An immensely characterful cottage in an immensely characterful area belonging to an immensely characterful and helpful owner. One of the very best in my experience as a frequent user of holiday cottages"
    Eve ‐ 17 May 2019

    "We loved our stay at Meg’s Cottage. Beautiful view, good quality furnishings and equipment, very dog friendly and lovely owner. We plan to return in the near future. Highly recommended."

    "The best dog friendly cottage we have ever stayed at!Fabulous location - it’s just beautiful!Very comfortable and well appointed throughout.The enclosed garden was exactly what we were looking for because of having two dogs with us. Absolutely excellent for dogs.Everything you could possibly wish for in the kitchen is there, and there is plenty of space to prepare and serve food.Well furnished and comfortable throughout. Nicely decorated and arranged.Two lovely bedrooms with great quality bedding, both with en-suite, which was wonderful.A warm welcome and a great stay. Thank you so much. We hope to return."

    "Facilities not up to the standard we have come to expect. A good example of why home DIY is not always a good idea."
