Roachside Cottage

Part of the living landscape of the Roaches

Peak District National Park - Upper Hulme, Nr Leek ST13 8UB

We had the best stay. The pictures on-line do not portray the house & it’s surroundings fully. This place is beautiful. We will definitely be back to do some more exploring.

p.s. Robert, A special thanks - All the extras in the house made our stay even better ie charging cables, maps & guides etc

What a wonderful cottage. We have had such a lovely two night stay. Our adventures included a trip to the Roaches Tearoom, a lovely walk foraging for blackberries and a trip to Tittesworth Water.

Thank you for making our stay so comfortable. We had everything we needed - so comfortable, in fact, that we really don’t want to leave!

Will recommend to all and we really hope to return again.

Best wishes

Climbing The Roaches at night to watch the valley turn to man-made sparkles while the sun went down; until the human-glare was overtaken by the vast moorlands of darkness, reminded me that although we seem to do so much harm to the environment, there may be a balance after all.

Ludschurch was a delight, not least because it is not a "church"! We felt the nearness of innocent joy that the first to name the place must have felt too.

The boys enjoyed paddleboarding along with the hearty pub meals. We;ve played way too much "Yahtzee", not to mention "Slam" & "Scrabble" with warming fires.

The cottage is so well stocked. It has been an absolute pleasure to stay and explore from here. I'd love to come back. Thank you Robert and the lovely Scout.

Thank you for another lovely stay in your beautiful cottage. It was lovely to have a bit longer this time.

We have had a great week here despite the weather being up and down!

We walked in The Roaches, Tittesworth Water and climbed up to Thor's Cave on the Manifold Trail. We had some nice meals at The Three Horseshoes and the nicest meal by far was at The Ship Inn in Wincle. We enjoyed the coziness of the cottage and loved the log fire.

Thank you for the lovely welcome when we arrived and for showing us the baby birds. We look forward to returning in the near future.

Thank you so much. I have enjoyed climbing up the big hills and going on long walks.

We went all the way round the lake - it was 7 km. We went the Thor's Cave. I liked going inside it. It was a bit slippery. I got very muddy. I have loved being here. I hope to come again soon.
