The Shires description

Holiday home
The Shires is a detached cottage with heaps of character, built with traditional stone in the heart of the stunning village of Alstonefield and can sleep six people. There is a king-size double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a single bed with an additional pull-out stacker bed, a bathroom, a ground floor basin and WC, a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and a lawned garden area with furniture. The Shires is a great base for your fun-filled holiday.

On the borders of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, between the valleys of the Dove and the Manifold Rivers, is the charming village of Alstonefield. With real charm and character, this wonderful little settlement has won the 'Best Kept Village Award' ten times - most recently in 2005 - and was also in the final of the 'National Village of the Year' award in 1998. With a traditional country pub set just off the village green, this is a truly special holiday destination. Set in verdant green countryside, and along the course of the 'Manifold Trail' - which follows the route of the old Leek to Manifold Light Railway - this is an ideal spot for walkers or cyclists. The pretty towns of Ilam and Hartington are close by and provide a wide range of amenities such as shops and cafes, whilst further afield are the pretty market towns of Ashbourne and Leek.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.
