In a nutshell: Comfortable, detached, private lakeside fishing, conservatory, walk to pub, wheelchair access, pet friendly. This Staffordshire cottage is within walking distance of Rudyard Lake, a two-mile long lake that has a lovely setting in a steep wooded valley. It was an extremely popular day-out from the industrial Potteries in Victorian times. Even the great trapeze artist, Blondin, fresh from his feat of crossing Niagara Falls on the high wire, came to Rudyard Lake to repeat his achievement. The Victorians were brought here by train, which has now become a narrow gauge railway running along the shore. The lake remains popular today with families for walking and cycling as well as offering sailing, boating and canoeing.
