Town: The village of Meerbrook is on the edge of a popular walking area known as the Roaches, and is just four miles from the market town of Leek. Meerbrook is a short walk away from Tittesworth reservoir, which offers many activities and has a visitor's centre. The heart of village life is the local pub, which serves traditional ales and good food. Buxton is only 12 miles away and has a wider choice of places to eat and an interesting selection of shops. The town's museum is well worth a visit as is the Opera House, with its wide variety of entertainment on offer.

Lovely Cottage suited our big family (2 adults 9 children). Each cottage has its own Garden plus adjacent meadow for the kids to run around in. Great position for access to attractions and also so isolated. Great value for money. If you are lucky you will meet the chickens!!!
Ideal family country cottage

Perfect location for exploring the surrounding area, within sight of The Roaches; Reservoir, Adventure Playground and good food served at the Lazy Trout Pub, all within walking distance. The cottage was ideal for our family of 12 ranging from 18mths to over 60! A warm welcome was given by the owners, nothing was too much trouble, everything we needed was availble. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend, celebrating a 40th Birthday, even the weather was on our side!
The best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in!

Goldcrest was, without doubt, the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in - and we've stayed in many! Our hostess was delightful and welcoming, the cottage spotless in every respect, well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. Beautiful location, close to a marvellous pub, The Lazy Trout, which served fabulous food and a beautiful reservoir with great amenities. Nothing at all to dislike - unless you count the weather, which was pretty grim!

We received a lovely friendly welcome on arrival from the owners.
The cottage was well appointed and very clean, with lots of amenities and in a beautiful location. Plentiful parking space.
We were able to walk to several local attractions including the village pub for some meals and Titesworh Water for walks etc. The views were magnificent.
The facilities wre brilliant so we could cook our own meals and in this cold weather the house was so warm. .
A clear view of the Roaches every morning !!

Goldcrest Cottage was ideal for us - 6 adults, 2 children at school and a toddler. Plenty of space in the cottage as well as plenty of space in the garden area. Local pubs were good for food and beer and we made the trip up to the Roaches on 3 separate occasions - including a 10 mile walk from the cottage. The shops in Leek were easily found and we made good use of the Co-op.
All of us - from Essex, Suffolk and Northumbria had good journeys to and from - so a great family holiday was had by all.

We found the accomodation excellent with the owner
ver welcoming and helpful.The facilities for our
party which included two young children were ideal.
The only critiscm we had that it was difficult to
find in the dark and there should be a sign at the
end of the lane leading to the property.
