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.


Cosy cottage, with everything you need.
Lovely cottage very well equipped and clean, James and Catherine the owners are lovely and really helpful. We stayed for 4 nights and being dog friendly was a real bonus, we also made use of the dog sitting service provided by the owners, which allowed us to visit Alton towers!. The cottage has lovely walks right on the doorstep with gorgeous tea rooms serving coffee and cakes. Thank you James and Catherine for a lovely stay and we will definitely be coming back in the future

We?re going back!
Visiting family in the area I was disappointed to discover how little dog friendly accommodation there is in the area of Alton Towers. In fact a recommendation from another B&B owner pointed me towards Barks and we were very happy with what we found. A great location with stunning scenery all around, perfect for relaxing, we fully intend to go back later this year.

Great New Years Break
We stayed at Barks Cottage for a short New Years break for 4 nights at the end of December. We left it late to book anywhere but luckily they had the dates available. We were attracted by the fact its pet friendly and the location just on the edge of the Peak District. It's a new area for us, but we really enjoyed it. The cottage is lovely, tucked down a track in the quiet Hamlet of Moneystone, yet not far from Oakamoor, Cheadle and Alton. There were 2 adults and 1 Border Collie. The cottage is 2 bedroomed and has a large kitchen, large dining/lounge and a good bathroom with a large shower. The real fire was lovely and a bonus. The supply of logs was very generous. Most cottages give you the 1st basket free, but that usually consists of 6 logs!! We probably only used half the logs provided and had a fire every night. The kitchen is really well equipped with a good dishwasher, full sized oven and a fridge freezer. The lounge had a brilliant 32 inch TV which also makes a change! It was also nice to have a decent supply of essentials like condiments, cleaning materials etc. We are walkers and this cottage didn't let us down in that sense! There are loads of walks from the door (the track is actually a public footpath) and the walks in the area are lovely. We walked approx 10 miles each day, didn't touch the car and hardly met anyone which is nice when you have a slightly grumpy dog! James and Catherine were lovely people. The booking process was simple and they live next door if you have any problems. They also keep hens and ducks if you want eggs, you can purchase some. A nice touch was a bottle of Champagne waiting for us to celebrate the New Year. There are nearby supermarkets and shops in Cheadle which is only a 10 min drive away if you need it. They also offer pet sitting services, though we didn't use them. All in all a lovely break in a really nice cottage. Thank you!

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.
