Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Sleeps up to 4-6, scenic rural location, perfect if you love the great outdoors

Field House Cottage is the ideal base for a holiday or short stay in the stunning Peak District National Park. With a rural and scenic location at The Roaches, the cottage is the perfect place to stay for walkers, climbers, nature lovers and anyone who enjoys spending time in the great outdoors.

Originally dating back to 1650, Field House Cottage has been refurbished to provide everything you need to relax and enjoy your break. There is a fully fitted kitchen with dining area downstairs as well as a separate comfortable sitting room. Upstairs there is a bathroom with combined bath / shower and two bedrooms, each sleeping two people - one bedroom has a flexible zip and link super king or twin bed and the other bedroom has two single beds. There is also a double sofa bed in the downstairs sitting room. A cot can be provided if needed too.

Outside the cottage there are patios to the front and back with tables and chairs. Guests are also welcome to use our large garden. Please note that children should be supervised at all times in the garden as there is open water.

The cottage is attached to our own home but with separate entrances. We offer some shared facilities to guests including a bbq, freezer space, use of washing / drying room and storage for bikes etc.

We have a dog, cats and chickens. With animals on-site, we're unable to accept pets at Field House Cottage.

Please note that the cottage is situated half mile off the public road down a single gravel farm track with passing places. There is plenty of off-road parking next to the cottage.

Field House Cottage is conveniently located close to the bustling market town of Leek in Staffordshire (4 miles away) and Buxton, the Derbyshire spa town (10 miles away). Many attractions such as Chatsworth, Alton Towers and World of Wedgwood are close by as well as the whole of the Peak District National Park on the doorstep.

The Roaches, right next to the cottage, is a dramatic rocky ridge which offers great climbing, walking and fell-running routes. There is a huge range of outdoor activities available across the Peak District including abseiling, caving, climbing, cycling, hiking, horse riding and running. Tittesworth Water and Rudyard Lake are also close to the cottage for watersports, fishing and birdwatching.

There is a pub in the village and a tearoom nearby plus lots of lovely country pubs and restaurants just a short drive away.

A cosy cottage nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Roaches

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were greeted by the stunning scenery of the Roaches. Whether it's sunny or raining the views around the cottage are atmospheric to say the least.

We stayed at the cottage over Christmas and it was decorated beautifully. The cottage was very warm and welcoming.

Olivia (the owner) left us fresh eggs, biscuits, milk etc. which was appreciated as we yet hadn't had time to shop.

Olivia is very generous and the cottage has enough supplies of loo roll, washing powder and soap etc to last the whole week.

The cottage was very clean and well maintained and equipped.

The beds we slept in were the most comfortable we have EVER slept in.

We had a wonderful week at Field house cottage and will be returning again!

Ruhiges und erholsames Plätzchen

  • 4 of 5

Das Field Cottage liegt ruhig inmitten von Wiesen, Farnen und Bäumen in einer Senke. Hier findet man Ruhe und Erholung und ist in 10 min. auf dem Hügel mit traumhafter Aussicht. Es ist ideal zum Abschalten vom stressigen Alltag. Alle wichtigen Haushaltsutensilien sind vorhanden und die Einrichtung ist sehr gemütlich. Wir haben uns hier wohlgefühlt. Leider war unser Aufenthalt etwas kurz aber die schönen Eindrücke werden bleiben!!!
