Covid-19 (updated 18/9/20)
Following the most recent Cabinet Office Directive, we are now accepting bookings for holidays in October, November & December. However, the cottage may only be booked for groups comprising a maximum of 2 households (i.e. not people from several home locations). Bookings can be made without our usual deposit, but may be cancelled at short notice if local virus control measures necessitate, either here or at the home location(s) of the intending visitors.
PLEASE REMEMBER - if your Local Authority Area is subject to re-imposed lockdown restrictions, you MAY NOT travel outside your home area to take a holiday. We are expecting that some holidays already booked may be cancelled by guests, the world of travel and accommodation is extremely fluid - so check the calendar regularly to see if opportunities have opened up.
Please remember that the current NATIONAL government guidelines are as follows;
You should not:
Gather indoors in groups of more than two households - this includes when dining out or going to the pub
Interact socially with anyone outside the group you are attending a place with, even if you see other people you know, for example, in a restaurant, community centre or place of worship
Hold or attend celebrations (such as parties) where it is difficult to maintain social distancing
Stay overnight away from your home with members of more than one other household
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.
