Welcome To Hotel Rudyard

We are situated at the south end of the beautiful and picturesque Rudyard Lake approximately 2 miles north west of the Staffordshire Moorlands market town of Leek, just off the A523 Leek to Macclesfield Road. We are only a twenty five minute drive from the world famous Alton Towers resort, and only a ten minute drive from the Roaches and the Peak District National Park. There are numerous attractions within easy travelling distance and there are many fabulous walks all around us.

The parents of Rudyard Kipling liked the place so much that they named their son after it and he later became one of Britain’s greatest writers. Rudyard Lake’s peak of popularity was in the late 1800’s when the ease of train access bought as many as 20,000 visitors in one day. Today, the lake boasts a visitor centre, activity centre and shop/café. There are boating facilities in the summer and a pleasant walk around the lake which is approximately 5 and a half miles. Rudyard Lake Steam Railway is a great family day out ideal for kids on a train trip along Rudyard Lake. If you’re a keen fisherman the lake gives many hours of enjoyment and tranquillity.
