                      The Old Nurse's Cottage is the ideal base to explore the surrounding area. On the edge of the Peak District there's plenty of stunning countryside to be discovered for walkers and cyclists including the Churnet Valley right outside the door and the Manifold Valley. For thrill seekers Alton Towers is only 4 miles drive away and you can take advantage of the factory shops of the Potteries nearby.

                      Steam trains, canals, stately homes and fishing are yet more attractions all waiting to be discovered.
