Really enjoyed staying at Doveridge Cottages over this New Years break, lovely setting (lots of walks and nearby places to enjoy!)
Great sized kitchen and living room for all 8 of us - only downside was the sofa space which we could have done with a little more for us all! Otherwise fantastic cottage, with loads of parking and in a fantastic location for all of us!
Many Thanks! And we would happily stay again! :)
Booked the larger cottage for a surprise 50th party for 10 people. Most are shooters, and being right in the middle of it all was a bonus. Waking up to shotgun blasts made my partners weekend. The cottage is great, very clean and most of the things you could want. I opted for the gas BBQ, which was huge, and cooked for us all in no time. Kitchen is a good size, and we didn't struggle for space, however considering it was the larger cottage it could have benefited from a large fridge and a dish washer would have been nice. I was a bit surprised that there was only one bathroom for a cottage for 10 people, but we managed! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Free wifi was a bonus. If I'd realised there was a hot tub, I would have booked it. As it was, the hen party next door spent most of the night in it! On that point, you couldn't hear anything from the adjoining cottages, and they were all occupied. Would definitely do it again.
We stayed in Cottage No.2 over May bank holiday for a friends stag weekend. The house is situated on the Grounds of Doveridge Clay Sports surrounded by lovely countryside. 7 of us stayed, and there was more than enough space (it could have slept 9/10 comfortably). Its big dining table was great for a large group meal and drinks, and there was a coal and a gas BBQ outside. The pub was a fair distance, but made for a nice walk into Doveridge, and it wasn't far at all from the shops in Uttoxeter. What made it great for us was its distance from Alton Towers and a paintball range that were not 10 miles away.
Breakfast in the Cafe was also a highlight for us and definitely eased the hangovers!
We can't thank Johanne and the rest of the staff enough!
