Quiet, comfortable, canal & country rest

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Longsdon - the cottage is well equipped and comfortable - the kitchen even has sharp knives! Everything has been thought of. We had an excellent introduction from Nick and took up many of his suggestions.

The view from the patio on a sunny day is lovely and we saw boats go by on the canal. Walks along the canal are easy with well laid paths in either direction & the other canal branch is close by for variety. There are many excellent walks & trails in the surrounding Peak District and we found somewhere to walk or visit each day with no difficulty & even fitted in some Staffordshire oatcakes.

A lovely area which we would be happy to visit again and an excellent property which entirely met our requirements - thanks

A quality property in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

An enjoyable week in a comfortable and well appointed cottage. Many walking opportunities nearby and easy access to the Peak District. Canal side pubs and a Weber barbecue at the cottage to make the most of. There is a large supermarket only a 10 minute drive away and more shopping opportunities in nearby Leek. Would recommend for families or group of friends looking to explore the surrounding area.

Lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

So much to do - canal walks, the roaches, manifold valley, chatsworth, markets & shops of Leek, the potteries ... or just sitting with a glass of wine taking in the view!

Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this lovely home in Stoke on Trent. The house is situated on a quiet lane fronting the canal. Lots of nice walks and sitting in the sun in the garden. The house is very comfortable and has a very well appointed kitchen. Thank you Nick and Emma!
