The Barns at Butterton
December 11th 2017
A choice of luxury levels – the same gorgeous location.
Out on the eastern edge , in an often-overlooked corner is the Staffordshire stretch of The Peak District. Easily accessible from Leek and perched high up on the steep-sided Manifold valley, the barns at Butterton are a great place to base yourself and explore this charming area.
There are three barns with a range of luxory levels, from the full-on, self-catering cottage of Fenns Barn to the ‘glamping approach’ of Wills Barn to the traditional camping barn of Waterslacks. They all share the same stunning location and views as well as easy access to the area.
You can walk from the front door into the Manifold Valley and explore its crags and caves or cycle along the rewarding Manifold Valley Trail – one of those railway-lines-converted-into-bridleways. The village of Butterton itself rewards the visitor with its pretty aspects and ford across the river. As I write this it is deep in snow and looks as pure-white and perfect as a film set.
Casting out further afield are the familiar Peak District attractions of Chatsworth House, Alton Towers or the amazing walking in the White Peak, but do try to visit the lovely bustling Market town of Leek. It has retained much of its Victorian and Georgian character especially in the small shops gathered round its market square.
