Set in the southern Peak District, it is rare to find a cottage all on its own in the most beautiful environment. With this luxurious, warm, well appointed cottage, this really is the ideal place to explore all the attractions of the Peaks and north Staffordshire. Just 30 mins drive and you are in Buxton or Bakewell, with places like Chatsworth House to visit. Just 10 mins away are the pretty market towns of Leek and Ashbourne. With st...

Wow - where to start! We had an amazing weekend at Ford Wetley Cottage celebrating my 30th birthday with my family, made even more special by lots of snow! We didn't know whether we would be able to get there at first, the snow was so thick and deep, Louise and Adrian kept us informed about weather conditions and, with...

A lovely cottage in a lovely setting. We went as a family, all having our own ensuites, which in itself is a bonus! when we arrived there was a welcome of fresh eggs, biscuits, crisps and a bottle of red wine! The owners have thought of everything, as they say a real home from home. The beds were very comfortable...

About the neighbourhood
Ford is a peaceful hamlet off the beaten track set on the banks of the river Hants. The cottage is about half a mile out of the village along a dead end road, it is secluded by trees from the main house and so if you are looking for seclusion, this is the place. It is a few miles to the nearest pub in Onecote (only walkable in very dry weather) and about three miles to the nearest shop. With some lovely walking from the front door you won't need to go far, Dovedale and the spectacular Roackhes are just a few mins away by car. A good choice of pubs and restaurants are all close by. There is a lovely farm shop/cafe a 2 mile walk, up hill out of Ford and the new Peak Wildlife Zoo Park is also 2 miles away.
