In a nutshell: Exceptional quality, four poster bed, both bedrooms en suite, pet friendly. This group of Staffordshire cottages is just one mile outside the small market town of Cheadle - not to be confused with the town of the same name in Cheshire - best known for St. Giles Catholic Church, commonly referred to as 'Pugin's Gem'. The architect Augustus Pugin was commissioned to build St Giles by the 16th Earl of Shrewsbury, who lived at nearby Alton Towers, just over 150 years ago. Pugin, who helped Charles Barry with the design of the Houses of Parliament, was asked to design and build a church which would have no rival. His creation was his own tribute to inner peace and serenity and a design wonder of the Gothic Revival.
