From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


A great family base for that special occasion and conveniently located just 300 yards away from the pub.

This large five bedroomed 17th-century character house is set in the heart of the prestigious rural village of Rolleston-on-Dove – first documented in King Edmund’s Charter of 942AD. Overlooking the church and village green, the extended cottage has privacy assured from the very large enclosed landscaped gardens allowing areas for complete relaxation. The Croft is a detached holiday property and is close to a popular village pub which serves excellent food and wine. Furnished to a very high standard throughout, The Croft has its own cinema room which allows guests the chance to enjoy a movie on a large screen. The large family kitchen is well-equipped and the large dining room area is fantastic to enjoy a meal together at the end of a busy day. There is a conservatory and separate study room with computer access for those that like to keep in touch whilst away or for researching the many local attractions in the area. There are five bedrooms in total – two on the first floor share a family shower room with toilet whilst a third and fourth have a Jack and Jill shower room with toilet. The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor along with a separate bathroom and toilet. The North Staffordshire Railway gives access to Burton-on-Trent and nearby facilities include Alton Towers, Drayton Manor Park, Snibson Discovery Park, Conkers, Bass Museum, Carsington Reservoir, Ashbourne and several National Trust properties. The famous Tutbury Crystal and Tutbury Castle are also nearby and for keen cyclists, the Tissington Trail with its 13-mile route is a must. Donnington Park is 25 minutes away, which is home to the World Superbike Championship. Craythorne Golf Club is ½ mile. Shop ¼ mile, pub 300 yards.

    We booked the house to stay in during the lead up to, and after, our wedding at St Mary's Church opposite the property. It was an excellent base to put up our family, with the club across the road offering hearty breakfasts and the coop for anything else. The kitchen was also well eqipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware making the house ideal for family and friends to gather. There was plenty of outdoor seating too - the only thing we missed was a BBQ. The bedrooms were a good size, and comfortable, as were the bathrooms. The view of the garden and church, and village surroundings were lovely and could be enjoyed even in the rain as the owners provide several large golfing brollies! Overall, we had a fantastic time and would stay again. Our only issues were difficulty operating the sky in the cinema room - but we were too occupied catching up with family and the enjoyment of the wedding for this to bother us!

    Wonderful house, so we'll equipped and comfortable. Owners very helpful when we couldn't get the dvd in cinema room working. Table tennis and football were great fun and enjoyed by all. Kitchen was great, so well stocked with equipment and everything easy to use. Plenty of bathrooms meaning no queueing for the shower. We had no issues with the water at all as we did as instructed and ensured we let the tank refill between uses.. Would love to go back, such a relaxing home and a nice village location .

    Superb location for exploring Rolleston-on-Dove and short drive to Burton-on-Trent. 2 pubs in the village, both serving excellent food. The Spread Eagle is a 30 second walk. Not many cottages have a HD projector / cinema room.

    We had a very enjoyable family weekend at the Croft. There was plenty to keep us entertained when we were in the house, table tennis, table football and the cinema room were very well used. Though we had poor weather, the children enjoyed playing in the garden when it wasn't raining.There were plenty of different areas, so that people could join in with others or sit quietly reading.

    We chose this property because we needed 3 bathrooms with showers due to the mix of guests not all being family. Unfortunately only one shower worked and the toilet and sink in one of the bathrooms didn't,t work either. We had been contacted by the ow ner prior to going to say that the cleaner had found water on the bathroom floor so could we watch out for a leek. Our problem was that you could stand under the shower for 5 mins and not get any water then it came belting out staying all over the place and then just as abruptly stopped. The same happened at the sink getting you absolutely soaked into the bargain the toilet also didn't,t flush unless you pulled the stop cockup. This was the only bathroom at this side of the property for 2 of the bedrooms which was very awkward especially at night we all had to trapseover the other side of the house down our flight of stairs and up another flight. There was obviously major issues with air locks or whatever and we believe that the owner was aware of this before we arrived as she had phoned us. There was also comments in the visitors book about shame about the plumbing. As we were only there for a weekend celebrating a birthday we felt we did not have the time to be staying in waiting for a plumber to arrive and didn't,t like the idea of someone we didn't,t know coming into the property whilst we were out with our things ther. The owner phoned us afterwards and asked how things were and tried to say we should of run the water to get the air lock through but my husband is a plumber and he said this was more than an air lock issue. She rang several times trying to excuse the plumbing as suddenly just happened but we believe this has happened on many occasions by what we read in the comments . It is unfair that we paid such a lot of money for a weekend when we needed 3 bathrooms and only could use 1. This property should not be marketed as having 3 fa vilifies when only 1 worked and it is clear this has happened before. The rest of the place was excellent. It was a shame it spoilt what would of been a perfect week end. I would go back again but only if I was assured there were no more plumbing problems and it had been properly checked before guests arrived the showers and sinks. We followed instuctions and made sure only one person tried to shower at a time but then only one could anyway as only one worked.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The Croft is a delightful 17th century property with lots of lovely characteristics. Unfortunately on this occasion there was an airlock in the pipes which restricted the water flow. As the Owners, we were quick to respond but the guests refused to have the plumber out to solve the problem and therefore there was nothing further we could do at that point. The Croft isn't a modern house and is therefore quirky but that's its charm and why we have numerous repeat bookings. There had been a small water leak by the heated towel rail which we had just had fixed and the guests were made aware of this. We do strive to maintain the property to a very good standard and try to ensure our guests have an enjoyable and well-earned break!
