The Parlour is a lovely, completely self-contained luxury shepherd’s hut offering guests a fitted kitchen, shower room, a double bed and dining area. There’s a radio, but no TV or Wi-Fi. You won’t need it though with so much beautiful countryside around you to explore. It’s a chance to get off-grid and leave your hectic life behind for a few days.

Watch the sun setting or the cows go up for evening milking. Cook dinner on your Indian kadai firebowl and keep warm sitting around it as the evening cools. Have fun on the antique swing, which hangs from the branch of an old ash tree. Listen to the dawn chorus while you wake up after a good night’s sleep, then enjoy your coffee and a Staffordshire breakfast on your terrace. If you are a lover of stargazing, you will really enjoy our dark skies. There are no streetlights around here, and on dark clear nights, the skies are brilliant with stars. It’s certainly a good place to bring a pair of binoculars!

The pretty, traditional village of Denstone is close to many fantastic attractions, including the thrilling Alton Towers theme park which is just a few minutes’ drive away. The village has an award-winning farm shop and café and a local inn. Alton is a 6-minute drive away and offers numerous eateries and pubs and a Post Office. Situated on the Churnet Valley Trail and close to the High Peak and Tissington Trails, there are excellent walking and cycling routes available.

Located on the edge of the Peak District, there is plenty to do in the area; the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek are easily accessible, as is the town of Uttoxeter. The historic houses of Haddon and Chatsworth are within easy reach, and there are numerous walking, cycling and climbing opportunities straight from the front door. A wonderful part of the Peaks with plenty to do and see whatever time of the year you choose to visit.

    Really lovely relaxing break in a beautiful location, hosts very helpful with good knowledge of the area. Loved all the animals that came to visit us on our stay, especially Dara the dog who was just lovely! The only thing that made them lose out on the 10/10 score was the mattress on the pull down bed and the pillows. The mattress was very thin and we could feel the hard table top underneath and the pillows were very flat, even with two. This wouldn't stop us from returning but we didn't have a very comfortable sleep on either night. If the hosts were to upgrade these things this property would be a solid 10/10. Overall we had a lovely break and the attention to detail of the Parlour is fantastic, all the small little touches make it really very special.
