Beautiful cosy cottage
Really clean, welcoming and charming
chilling weekend in a lovely cottage with nice and helpful owners on hand
we went to Daisy Cottage for a chilling weekend with some friends. We were text to say feel free to check-in earlier as no one in before us. Jo the owner was lovely and paid us a courtesy call to say hello and advised on the pubs to visit etc and to ring with any issues. the cottage is ideal for two couples and a lovely location on the edge of the canal. Shame it was winter as we couldn't see appreciate the garden but I guess in summer it's lovely. The black lion was recommended by Jo the owner and she was so right, worth a visit. The Boat Inn opposite was friendly and good for drinking but not our cup of tea for food but if you like cheap and cheerful it's ok. Visited the steam train as well, great little area, lovely cottage thought of everything you could need and very clean, would go again and certainly recommend.
Thanks Jo and Marcus
Lovely cottage next to Calden canal
Super countryside setting with canal walks from the cottage door. Churnet Valley steam train adjacent which is an excellent trip. Boat Inn 2mins but no noise at night. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can recommend.
Beautifully decorated and finished cottage in a glorious location.
My husband, myself and dog had a lovely break here. Lovely walks, convenient pub, cosy wood burner, plenty of interesting places to visit. Sadly, we only had two days!
I would like to return with more members of the family to fill and appreciate that lovely cottage!
Daisy Cottage is so quaint! Beautifully kept, well equipped, its all you need for a relaxing stay.
Our experience staying at Daisy Cottage was very relaxing and peaceful..a truly lovely place to unwind.The garden was also a delight to sit in.. watching the canal boats sail by in the wooden gazebo at the bottom of the garden. The owners Jo and Marcus were very pleasant and helpful..nothing was too much trouble. The oldie worldie canal side pub is a stones throw away, along with the Churnet Steam railway . Great picturesque walks from the cottage, our dog had a great time! ☺ Th

The Staffordshire Moorlands Cycle route can be accessed from the tow path on the canal.
