Gritstone Trail accommodation

The Gritstone Trail is a 35 mile long-distance footpath connecting Disley in Cheshire to Kidsgrove in Staffordshire. It is a short but challenging route, with much of the upland above 1,000ft, and takes in Lyme Park, Sponds Hill, Tegg’s Nose Croker Hill and Mow Cop. The energy expended is fully rewarded by magnificent views of the Cheshire Plain.

Notes on Gritstone Trail Accommodation

We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Gritstone trail accommodation recommendations.

Gritstone Trail Restaurants and Pubs

Gritstone Trail View

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants of the Gritstone Trail. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the route, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on Gritstone Trail pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
Please refer to the table below for pubs, restaurants and other services along the Gritstone Trail.

    • Lucy,
      Thanks for your comment, but we do not arrange B&B, nor do we supply guidebooks.
      We display the relevant info, and it is up to the individuals or groups to make use of that info.
