About the hotel
Located in the countryside with great walks in every direction. Many fantastic local pubs make it the ideal location for those walkers that enjoy a country pub around every corner. Nina and James are passionate about walking in the local area and can advise on walks tailored to any request.
Perfect for short breaks, weekend trips, family gatherings, Christmas parties and get-togethers. Group trips are very welcome and the b and b can be hired-out exclusively if required. Shawgate Farm also has a large bar and lounge and separate pool room on the ground floor which can all be opened for large groups and functions. Near to tourist attractions including Alton Towers, the Peak District, the Churnet Valley and Steam Railway, the Cauldon Canal, the Potteries and the Manifold Valley. Close to Leek, Ashbourne, Uttoxeter, Cheadle, Stoke, Alton, Rochester, Denstone, Staffordshire, Derbyshire. Being on the edge of the Peak District National Park we are in the ideal spot for walkers with Dovedale and the Manifold Valley on our doorstep.

Furthermore see how the pottery is made at the Visitor Centres of Wedgwood, Doulton or Spode. Check-in time is from 4pm until 9pm.

Shawgate Farm Guest House
Lovely room and friendly staff.
Really enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and comfortable.
Made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived.
Shown where to have breakfast and then shown to our rooms. Breakfast you had a choice of cereal or sausages, eggs etc. They always came to see if everything was okay with your breakfast or if you wanted more toast, tea and coffee. Found it ideal if you are going to Alton Towers and there where other places you can explore if you want too as it seems to be close to lots of other places to visit. Felt refreshed at the end of my stay.
