Map
About the neighbourhood
ALTON TOWERS is only 8 miles away, approximately 10 minutes by car, if you are not one for the thrills of the rides, don't worry, it's hidden away.

Both LEEK (also known as The Queen of the Moorlands town) & ASHBOURNE are traditional market towns with full amenities. Ashbourne is famous for it's antique shops, gingerbread & the 'infamous' shrovetide football.
Leek still has a traditional cattle market & street market, If you are looking for individualism & less 'high street branding' then both Ashbourne & Leek are the towns to visit.
A walk through both towns will allow you to step back in time as they are both steeped in history.

DOVEDALE & the famous stepping stones is approx 10 minutes by car with historic ILAM on the way, why not s...
