This cottage is for those who like peace and quiet, natural beautiful surroundings, those who appreciate the countryside and enjoy exploring. There is Wifi in the cottage but to get mobile signal, you have to walk into the field as we are surrounded by hills.
The main shops are a 6 mile drive and although you can walk to a local pub and farm shop and cafe, it is a muddy welly walk across fields and up hills.
Those who visit Ford Wetley go away with a feeling of peace and tranquility. Children love exploring the countryside and groups enjoy sitting outside by the BBQ in the long Summer evenings and cooking up the local produce and then putting some wood on the BBQ to turn it into a fire pit to keep warm.
If this sounds like the sort of holiday that you are looking for, please contact us to book. We can make suggestions for your stay if you wish as we are at the heart of the stunning Peak District attractions as well as the beauty and diversity of North Staffordshire and the Potteries.
Please note that although we have Wifi. It is not super fast. It is good for checking email and looking up places to go but it won't be what you expect in a town. There is a cafe close by who's Wifi is faster where you can use.
Please tidy and clean up after yourselves and strip the beds and leave the cottage as you found it! Please remove all food and place rubbish in the bins behind the cottage. Recycling can be left inside in the clear box. Glass by the bins in the crate.
You can make as much noise as you like here but please respect the farm animals in the fields around. Always closing gates!
