A family affair …
Husband and wife team, Nick and Emma Bettany took over the Peak Weavers in 1999 and set about restoring the period property to its former glory.
“ The Peak Weavers is situated in an ideal location in this small market town and continues to offer high quality accommodation.” ( Assessment report 2013 )
Built in 1828 for a local mill owner, the Peak Weavers stands in its own grounds close to Leek town centre. It was sold by the Wardle family in the 1860’s and became the convent to the Catholic church. For nearly 120 years it remained so until in 1978 it was converted to a guesthouse.
The Peak Weavers takes its name from its close proximity to the Peak District and from the industry that shaped the town of Leek. Fine examples of weavers’ cottages can be seen on King Street, their third storey catching optimum hours of daylight to enable Leeks’ women of yesteryear to work their looms from dawn to dusk.
Leek recently celebrated the 800 year anniversary of the granting of its market charter. A general market is held every Wednesday with a bric a brac market on Saturdays. On the third Saturday of the month there is also an award winning food market and on the first Sunday of each month we have a “Totally locally market” celebrating local artists and food suppliers. Leek has a real sense of community that is not found in every town and has, almost, a “village” atmosphere. The affection that people have for their town, its aesthetic appeal and host of independent shops has recently resulted in Leek being voted runner up in The Daily Telegraphs’ High Street of the Year.
