Covid-19 (updated 25/5/20)
Due to the current ongoing pandemic and the restrictions to control the spread of the disease, we regret to say that Roachside Cottage is closed and is unable to take bookings until further notice. We hope to reopen just as soon as government advice suggests it's safe to do so.
If, however, you happen to be a Very Important Person of very high intelligence and you are seeking to escape the relentless pressure of being in the public eye, the cottage can be made available at our published rate + £500 (to cover necessary deep cleaning afterwards). Please write to us, including a copy of your Downing Street security pass to confirm identity.
Roachside Cottage is situated just yards from the gateway into the beautiful Roaches Estate, a former private estate and grouse moor, now owned by the Peak Park and cared for by the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust.
I’m Rob and, together with my dog Scout, I want to introduce visitors to this part of the Peak District National Park. We’d argue that it is the most wonderful walking country there is – but then, we walk here all the time. Miles and miles every week. Indeed, one of us has spent 60 years wandering the paths and climbing the cliffs without ever tiring of it.
We’re lucky enough to own this lovingly restored old crofter’s cottage. It is situated in the most stunning location, with access onto the crags right outside the door.
