Nestled in the verdant Meerbrook Valley, on the edge of the Peak District, our former working farm takes full advantage of its precious location. Just a short stroll away from Tittesworth Water with its many water based activities such as: kayaking, canoeing and raft building. There is a visitor centre with lunchtime restaurant and a fantastic adventure playground to ensure a goodnight sleep for the children. From most bedroom windows the dramatic Roaches Rocks stand magnetically, inviting to be explored by climbers and walkers alike. Nearest golf club in Leek - 4 miles.
