About The Old Cartshed

The Old Cartshed is one of two beautifully restored, 4 Star Gold holiday homes at Troutsdale Farm on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Sleeping up to ten guests, The Old Cartshed is perfect for large groups of friends and families who want to holiday together, with the option of also booking the Old Shire Stables to accommodate an additional six guests. Surrounded by the tranquility and beauty of the Staffordshire Moorlands, Troutsdale Farm is within walking distance of Tittesworth Reservoir and close to an abundance of attractions for day trips out.

The owners have gone to great lengths to restore the barns beautifully, blending fabulous original features with modern day conveniences to provide a high degree of comfort for relaxing on holiday. Exposed stone and brick walls, chunky beams, Clearview stoves for cosy nights and fabulous views all add the charm of the properties and their setting. Tittesworth Reservoir is on the doorstep providing nature trails, outdoor play areas, a cafe and a water sports centre for kayaking and canoeing. Cimbers will enjoy the challenge of The Roaches and for cyclists, the Manifold Valley, Tissington Trails and the High Peaks provide miles of enjoyment.

The Peak District is the most highly visited of all the national parks in the UK which is no surprise considering its central location, and stunning natural beauty. Catering for all tastes in outdoor pursuits, the national park encompasses four counties, namely Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and also Yorkshire. Tittesworth sits on the south west side of the national park close to the Staffordshire / Derbyshire border and is a short car ride (5 minutes!) from the market town of Leek with a good range of shops and eateries. The popular spa town of Buxton is also close by (fifteen minutes by car) as are Ashbourne, Bakewell (famed for its pudding!) and Macclesfield (all within half an hour).

The area offers lots of fun-filled day trips out. Two of the most popular are possibly Alton Towers (just twenty minutes by car) and Chatsworth House. However, Haddon Hall; Tatton Park; the steam railways of Rudyard Lake, the Churnet Valley and Foxfield; and the underground caverns of Pooles, Speedwell and Peak Cavern are all fabulous day trips out. You can also go horse riding, play a round of golf, go fishing, or bird watching at one of the RSPB reserves; or drive to The Potteries or the Joderall Bank Observatory and Discovery Centre. The choices are endless!

Alternatively, stay put and enjoy the tranquility and beauty on the doorstep with glorious scenery to immerse yourself in and a choice of three good pubs in the village for a long lazy lunch.

The holiday homes are not suitable for use as a 'party house' so unfortunately hen and stag parties cannot be accepted. No smoking and unfortunately no pets.
