Middle Cottage is just a great location for your holiday, whether it is for walking and site seeing or just relaxing.

Endon is famous for it’s well, which has never run dry. We celebrate this every year with a well dressing (where the well is covered with boards which in turn is covered with clay, and flowers, pressed in) to form a picture.

We are situated approximately 5 miles from the Potteries, where there are plenty of museums, factory tours and shops dedicated to the Potters of years ago.

The other direction is Leek, a beautiful market town which has a host of antique shops, a fabulous market with a variety of shops to keep you entertained for a quite a while.

A little further on we have the Roaches, Buxton, Hartingdon, Dovedale and Ashbourne, all nestling in the Peak District. Don’t forget your walking boots!
The National Trust features locally with Biddulph Grange with its extensive gardens, Little Moreton Hall, and a very interesting childhood museum at Sudbury. A must to visit is Chatsworth – a beautiful stately home with breathtaking landscape. These are all in the reach of Middle Cottage.

For the walkers amongst you there are the Roaches, with Rock Hall (the house built in the rock of the Roaches) carrying on to Roach End and Ludschurch. The reservoir at Tittesworth has a great play area and guided trails. Dovedale with its notorious Stepping Stones gives tourists so much pleasure crossing the river (hope your feet don’t get wet!) Issac Walton used to fish there which prompted him to write a book. Castleton is famous for the Blue John Stone and you may enjoy discovering all the caverns a.nd caves that Castleton has to offer.

For the thrill seekers amongst you there is Alton Towers within 15 miles radius.
For the railway enthusiasts we have the Churnet Valley Railway and the Foxfield Railway all holding special events and themed evenings.
