• About Moorgate Cottage

    Enjoying panoramic views over the Staffordshire Moorland countryside, in an area thickly threaded with footpaths, this cosy and comfortable cottage sits in a peaceful off road location. Adjoining the welcoming owner’s home, it offers a delightful base from which to explore the Peak District and Cheshire. There are two barn owls that nest in the building opposite, and these can be viewed on an evening when they are at the nest. Just 1 mile away is the beautiful Manifold Valley with its fantastic 8-mile cycling track, whilst Dovedale is 4 miles and Alton Towers, Splash Landings and the Churnet Valley Steam Railway are all under 8 miles. Buxton, Ashbourne, the Heights of Abraham cable cars, Chatsworth House, Festival Park for cinema and bowling, the Potteries, and Trentham Gardens Monkey Forest are just some of the attractions found within 20 miles. Leek, a historic market town with interesting shops and good inns, is 6 miles. Painting classes are available by arrangement with the owner. Shop and pub serving food 1 mile.

    The cottage was fine but the owner was rude, aggressive and cantankerous. I got a call from him the day after I left shouting down the phone at me for leaving the heating on when I left. I had switched the heating to a position I thought was off and when I tried to get a word in edgeways to give him my perspective he would not shut up. I had to scream down the phone to get him to stop his tirade and listen. I wanted to help him stop this happening again but the man was not for listening so I put the phone down. Cottage is ok of a little small but do not cross the owner!!! Get things wrong at your peril.

    Great cottage, location is remote but the scenery is amazing. Great base to explore the area; once you work out where you are in the area, you realise its easy to get where you need to go.

    We had a wonderful time, John made us feel at home. Peaceful location, ideally placed for a base in the Peak District.
