Things To Do in Cheddleton
Nestled near the village of Cheddleton by a river and canal on the Staffordshire moors. Enjoy country walks with your furry friend, starting right on your doorstep.
The open countryside can be seen from the back garden, and is just waiting to be explored. Take a doggie walk into the village, and stop off in one of the pubs, cafes and eateries. The River Churnet flows past the village, as does the Caldon Canal, so you’ve got a choice of wooded river banks or a superb canal side path to follow with your eager canine companion.
There’s a water mill to the west along the path, at Cheddleton Flint Mill. This is a superb preserved mill complex, with two huge water wheels and a museum to tell you all about it.
Head east across the bridges over the canal and river, and check out the Grade II listed train station, which also has a museum with steam locomotives. These trains travel the Churnet Valley Steam Railway, down to Froghall to the south west. Get the train, or have a drive down this amazing landscape, which is so high above sea level it’s called Little Switzerland.
Just to the north of Cheddleton is the market town of Leek, which is well worth a morning or afternoon visit. Take your shopping basket, because you’ll find everything you could ever need, sold in real shops and supplied by local farmers.
Head out to the Roaches, just north of Leek up the A53. This is a stunning gritstone outcrop which has been carved out by the wind over thousands of years, and overlooks miles of landscapes. This is in the Peak District National Park, which has countless human and dog friendly activities to try, and great places to stop off for a bite to eat.
Scraggs Cottage is a lovely big country home with 4 bedrooms, two living rooms and loads of space to really kick back and relax.
With a country kitchen to temp the budding chefs of your party, and two wood burners in original chimney breasts, you might feel like staying in a lot. However, step outside and you’ll find fabulous countryside in this hidden English gem of a location.
Cheddleton has superb attractions of its own, like the water mill museum and steam train station, which is the gateway to the stunning Churnet Valley.
Enjoy the river or canal side walks with your furry friend, and take in the delights of Leek, on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Scraggs Cottage is the perfect place for a group holiday to remember.
