This delightful cottage in Moneystone, near the Churnet Valley, sleeps five people in two bedrooms, and offers accommodation all on one level.

Set in the small hamlet of Moneystone to the south of the Peak District, this lovely cottage makes a superbly cosy and welcoming base for enjoying the walks, cycling, market towns, pretty villages, theme parks and historic houses of the area. There are two comfortable bedrooms here, one double and one family room with bunks and a single bed. The accommodation is set over the ground floor, meaning young and old alike can relax in front of the open fire or enjoy the lovely views over the Churnet Valley. One dog is welcome, and the owner even offers a dog-sitting service, allowing your four legged friend to enjoy long walks with you and then be fussed over while you indulge in a fine meal or quiet afternoon. The attractive garden is a nice spot for relaxing, and the area is well placed for Staffordshire, the Peaks and more.


Cottage in lovely peaceful location, great views from the living room windows. The kitchen was very well equipped and the whole place very clean. We had a lovely weekend.
Mrs Coyle

The property was exactly as described and the location was excellent. It was well equipped and comfortable. The owners, who live next door, were very helpful and friendly. We chose this cottage not only for the location but also because it was genuinely dog friendly.
Mr Cranfield

A peaceful and relaxing break surrounded by beautiful countryside and wildlife. A delightful cosy cottage off the beaten track.
Mr Robinson

It was a last minute booking but the hosts had everything ready on arrival. Quiet location with fantastic views and in close proximity to Alton Towers which made the children very happy.
Mrs Harris

Loved the cottage, appreciated the wildlife, especially the owl. Fantastic location. 8 year old son & 14y.o daughter loved the holiday too. There are no fences, which if the description is read properly mentions this along with "free roaming fowl and livestock" if you have well trained & well behaved dogs/kids this should not be a problem. I arrived to the property & left the property in a clean state. If the previous guest had a problem then I am sure the owners would have done something about it. I found the owners very welcoming & pleasant. would love to come back oneday. Love the ability to see all the stars at night. Dogs loved it too.
