Initially Perseverance Cottage was in the middle of a large orchard, and a Grand National winner The Colonel was stabled here for training on nearby Ashley Moor. The horse won the Grand National in 1869 at 100/8 and also the next year 1870 when it was 7/2 favourite.
We encourage all wild life and the wild birds eat us out of house and home in the winter. We regularly have Pheasants, Rabbits, Hedgehogs and even the occasional Badger pays us a visit.
The accommodation is in a perfect setting for a relaxing stay. We offer accommodation on a nightly or weekly basis even for self catering, ideal for that short break to visit friends or for a local wedding or party. If you require breakfast we serve that in our main house. We offer a full English Breakfast with cereals, our own jams and unlimited toast, tea and coffee. We also serve a vegetarian option if required.
