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.


Wonderful stay at Barks Cottage
We are a family with a small dog and teenagers and we discovered that Barks offered us everything and more. With Alton Towers a short 10 minute journey away, we were able to drop the teens off at the very convenient Alton Towers drop off point (under 5 min walk to main entrance) and head off ourselves to explore the surrounding area - Dovedale Stepping Stones, the beautiful Trentham Gardens and the Ramblers Retreat in Dimmingsdale for a delicious lunch. We also took advantage of the dog walking service one day and joined our girls at Alton Towers which we thoroughly enjoyed. We booked directly with Catherine and James via their website and found them very easy to deal with and so accommodating. The bottle of Prosecco in the fridge when we arrived was a lovely touch and very well received. The cottage is surrounded by a lovely garden, perfect for sitting outside with a glass of wine after a busy day exploring. We found the cottage to be very clean and it had everything we needed. We will definitely return. It is perfectly situated for Alton Towers, exploring the beauty of the surrounding areas or if you're just looking for somewhere to chill, relax and recharge in the peaceful hamlet of Moneystone.

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.

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.
Mrs 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.
