About the property

Swedish lodge. One king size double with ensuite WC and one twin. Large shower. Washer/dryer. Partially covered outdoor hot tub. Suitable for parties including wheelchair users.

Situated in the historic village of Rudyard, in the county of Staffordshire, this delightful self catering chalet boasts views of sunny meadows leading down to Rudyard Lake, walks across stunning countryside and waterways, as well as providing easy access to the Peak District, wild life parks, horse riding centres, water based activities and of course Alton Towers. Rudyard is close to the historic market town of Leek and within driving distance of larger towns such as Macclesfield and Buxton, Ashbourne, and Bakewell. 

The lodge is an ideal hub for cycling, walking, lake based activities and enjoying the beautiful countryside. In a peaceful location, you can truly get away from it all and enjoy a relaxing holiday with a hot tub in a sunny mature garden hosting bird and squirrel feeders.

Internally Woodlands View is warm and comfortable with one kingsize bedroom and one twin bedroom. There's one shower room, and two toilets, one of them en-suite. In the main living area there are comfy leather sofas that provide cosy times in front of the flat screen TV.

Locally, there are a wide variety of activities to do whether visiting the caverns at the Blue John mines or the Heights of Abraham, or striding across the Roaches, sharp escarpments revealing the backbone of England and revealing delights such as Lud’s Church, a pagan worship site and the King’s stone, rising majestically from the ground. The Peaks provide numerous walks for walkers of all abilities and all reveal stunning views across the countryside.

The town of Leek boasts a wide range of eating and socialising venues from delightful coffee shops to country pubs, craft beers and fine wines. A range of restaurants from Italian, Indian, Chinese, Thai and Belgian are available, all well reviewed. Each Saturday the market is held and local produce is sold from a variety of local producers. On the first Sunday of each month, the Sunday Supplement craft market is held, which is always of interest with the Town Crier in evidence. You may often see the local Morris Dancers here.

Even better than we imagined

  • 5 of 5

Rudyard lodges are beautiful - they are a short walk from Rudyard lake which is gorgeous. The locals are very friendly and will advise you of the best walks. The cabin was clean, modern and the hot tub was easy to use and much bigger than expected. The site is quiet, lots of animals and a handy little shop onsite.
