It also boasts three en-suite kingsize bedrooms, a ground floor en suite double room and a double and twin room sharing a bathroom on the second floor, (both with height restrictions). There is a massive conservatory dining room perfect for celebratory meals together . As an alternative guests have the option to spill outside into the huge lawned garden and use the large barbecue to enjoy an outside dining experience.Sit outside on the gravelled area perhaps with a pre dinner drink and enjoy the garden,whilst keeping an eye on the younger members of the group or perhaps your four legged companions. We also have links with a fabulous chef who is able to cook for you at Old Beams and make a celebration truly special. Please ask for details he will then get in touch with you to discuss menu and service options along with prices. For activities, Old Beams is on the doorstep of the cycle trails of the Manifold Valley, minutes from beautiful ramblers paths and within 5 miles of Alton Towers. Centrally located between Derby and The Potteries, there are a wealth of additional attractions including china factory tours, craft areas, shops and museums, as well as the Waterworld swimming pool, indoor skiing and bowling. The great houses of Shugborough Hall, Little Moreton Hall and Chatsworth all lie within easy reach, and golf and riding are available nearby. Located within the village of Waterhouses, there is a delightful, traditional beamed pub serving excellent food (Ye Olde Crown at Waterhouses), a village shop, a take away cafe and a post office within a 5 minute walk and numerous additional pubs within a short drive. There is also a swimming pool at the local school in the village which can be booked for private parties. Please contact me directly if you would like to check rates and availability.

About the neighbourhood
Waterhouses is the largest village on the southern edge of the Peak, and the most substantial settlement in the Hamps valley. The village centre is where the Leek to Ashbourne road, the A523, crosses the Hamps and the road to Cauldon turns off south. There are rows of cottages clustered around this junction and a pub, The Crown Inn, on the corner. Just above here is the old station, once the terminus of the Manifold and Hamps Light Railway, and the remaining station buildings have been restored by the Peak Park and converted into an information and cycle hire centre. There is one other noteable pub in the village, the George Inn. There is a local village shop, a post office and a butchers within the village. A kilometre and a half away to the north is the small farming hamlet of Waterfall...
