This converted 17th Century stone cottage is part of the 30 acre Bank End Farm estate. Dating back to the 15th Century the farm is no longer worked and instead has opened its doors to visitors.
The original stone barn was converted to a holiday cottage in 1982, and has since enjoyed continued success with many visitors returning year after year. Visitors have included Gillian Taylforth, Paul Magan and John Inman. Our success, we are told, is attributed to our attention to detail, good clean standards and our friendly approach to help ensure that you get the most out of your stay. Earlier this year the cottage was completely refurbished elevating it to 4 star rating.
Bank End Farm is the ideal holiday base for which to experience the beauty of the Peak District National Park, the vibrant pottery towns and the thrills of Alton Towers.
Our location on the edge of the village of Brown Edge enjoys panoramic views over the Staffordshire countryside, whilst being only a short walk from the village amenities, including shops, supermarket, country pubs, post office and children's playground.
