  • Quirky & Unique
Historic Staffordshire watermill, beautifully fashioned into a quirky holiday cottage for family and friends

Words like 'unique' and 'quirky' are often batted around when it comes to holiday cottages, but we think they're fully justified in the case of The Old Watermill, in a charming Staffordshire village just outside Stoke-on-Trent. It sleeps up to five – ideal for friends and family – in utterly captivating rooms that have been beautifully fashioned from an old stone-built mill. There are oak beams galore, upstairs and down, and a great sense of space throughout. The style is firmly contemporary country, so while there's lots of wood on display, and old pieces of furniture about, there's also a really pleasing use of colour, not to mention all sorts of quirky corners and original features. It really is a very handsome interior indeed.

It's open-plan downstairs, with a log-burner in the lounge. Upstairs are two bedrooms under the eaves, one with a king-sized bed, the other with a double and a single, both attractively furnished. There's one family bathroom here too, with a nice, simple country feel. Other than there, there are all the bells and whistles you'd expect, from a fully fitted kitchen to smart TV and wifi – though it's a bit faster in some rooms than others, given the age and layout of the building.

There are mature, shared gardens, with a running stream and pond (an old mill – of course!), and you can walk to the local village in five minutes or so for shops, restaurants, bakery, butcher and pub. Trentham Estate is only a mile away too, an all-day kind of place with amazing gardens, a shopping village, children's play areas and forest adventures. It's a couple of miles further to Stoke-on-Trent for more shops and restaurants, or you're only thirty miles from the lovely old spa town of Buxton in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
