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.

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...
