Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was a very nice converted barn with all the home comforts you'd expect. Great owners who were available at the end of the phone and live locally.

Amazing little cottage, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Woodview Barn is a home away from home, such a beautiful cottage in amazing surroundings. It had everything we could possibly want, bonus having a washing machine as we came home very muddy from a visit to Thors cave! The whole cottage was so clean, bed linen and towels were also clean. The master bed was comfortable and the bunk beds (according to the children) were amazing and soooo very comfy! The location is amazing. We had originally opted for Woodview Barn as it was only 20 minutes from Alton Towers and yes we did visit there but we had so much more fun exploring the wonderful country side on our door step. Rural enough to feel away from it all but Leek the local town has all the amenities you could want for your stay. Anne and Ken the owners are lovely and easy to contact (not that we needed to contact them for any reason during our stay). We certainly plan on coming back! This cottage exceeded our expectations, it made coming home after each long day of exploring that much nicer. Thank you Anne and Ken for letting us stay!

Beautiful, clean, well equipped accommodation in a lovely quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights in July. The accommodation was first class, very clean and very well equipped. Room outside to park car and we also enjoyed eating in the garden at the picnic table. The kitchen has everything you need and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was lovely and clean. Only about 20 minutes from Alton Towers. We also visited lovely gardens at Stoke on trent and Peak Wildlife Park. We have 2 girls aged 5 and 2 and they loved it. The only one thing we missed was not having Wi-Fi but everything else was wonderful.

Ideal location for Leek and Buxton

  • 3 of 5

Lovely cottage and beautiful location. Could do with more comfortable furniture and more kitchen utensils and bedding. Can't fault cleanliness and cottage itself. Ideal location for Leek and Buxton.

Overall I recommend this cottage.

A beautiful barn conversion but shame about the uncomfortable furniture

  • 3 of 5

The owners have taken great care to convert the barn into a really cosy cottage, in a lovely village with a great pub within walking distance, but they let themselves down with awful cheap mattresses and uncomfortable chairs in the main sitting room. The equipment in the kitchen was lacking too. We couldn't even find a baking tray or cafetiere to make a fresh coffee. Such a shame to spoil the obvious love and care they've taken with the conversion. If they sorted out the furniture and made it a bit more homely we would've given it 5* as it is really cosy and in a lovely setting.The lack of a proper dining table was also an annoyance as we only had a half table in the kitchen right under the cupboard to eat on. I lost count of the number of times we banged our heads. Some soap in the toilet would've been welcome too. Despite the discomfort though, we did enjoy our weekend as it was such a lovely area but please don't spoil it with uncomfortable furniture when foam mattresses cost peanuts these days!
