Stay here from £130 per night.

Bijou, rustic and utterly romantic, this seriously gorgeous lodge for two is perfect for couples or single travellers wanting to escape from the outside world. Guests are afforded ample peace and quiet in a pretty countryside setting, while the lovely village of Woodseaves in Staffordshire is only 1 mile away.

The open plan living, dining, kitchen area is charming with vaulted ceiling and painted walls, quirky details like the hessian curtains, upside-down hanging flowers boxes and feature brass lighting bring together the truly authentic look and feel of original gardeners potting shed.

What you wouldn't expect though, is the private covered verandah with a festoon of fairy lights and a double-ended bathtub, which can be filled with piping hot water and bubbles, the perfect place to lie back and enjoy a glass of champagne or a cup of tea as you watch the sun go down on another great day.

The gorgeous kitchen is small but perfectly formed and comes with all the appliances you'd need for a few days away.

At the end of the day climb the ladder to bed in the cosy sleeping loft.

Located 1 mile from Woodseaves village you can eat out or visit the local pub. There are two pushbikes provided free of charge for those who would rather whizz along on two wheels,

Cooking outdoors on the fire pits is positively encouraged, there is also an allotment and orchard close by where you can pick your own fruit and vegetables.
