Covid-19 (updated 11/8/21)

It is now possible in England for multiple households to take a self-catering holiday. providing that members of those households are not otherwise subject to regulations preventing their travel or association with others (e.g. live in an area where travel restrictions apply due to local conditions/outbreaks or have tested positive in the last two weeks, or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive).

We are accepting provisional bookings for 2021 and 2022 on a "no deposit" basis - i.e. we will reserve dates for guests, but on the basis that they may be cancelled at very short notice by either party due to whatever circumstances prevail at the time. Please remember that if you live in a high risk location (as defined by the devolved governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland or by the UK Government), you may be subject to your own restrictions preventing non-essential travel or visiting other high risk locations.

Potential visitors from other countries should make themselves aware of the restrictions on leaving their own location and, more importantly, the quarantine restrictions placed on those entering the UK by the UK Government (which can vary dependent on which country you are travelling from).

Please revisit this page regularly for updates.

Stay safe everyone!

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 over 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.
