Holiday Cottages Staffordshire
Just a few miles from the industrial heartland of the West Midlands, rural Staffordshire seems a world away and offers the perfect bolthole for those looking to escape to the country. Holiday cottages in Staffordshire can provide the ideal hideaway or relaxing retreat, while offering a wealth of activities right on your doorstep.
Staffordshire is ideal for short breaks and self-catering family holidays, with history to discover and no shortage of fun activities to indulge in, whatever your age. Thrill seekers will feel right at home in Staffordshire’s holiday cottages and will love being so close to some of the best theme parks in the country, with Alton Towers and Drayton Manor within easy reach. You will be able to hit the slopes at any time of year with real snow skiing, snowboarding and sledging at the SnowDome in Tamworth, take to the trees for some adrenalin adventures on the high ropes course of Go Ape on the beautiful Cannock Chase, or tee off for world class golf at a range of courses, including prestigious Ryder Cup course The Belfry in nearby Sutton Coldfield.
It is not all high octane adventure or sporting pursuits though, there is plenty to help you relax and soak in the tranquility. Cannock Chase itself has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and will delight walkers and cyclists, you can relive the past at the historic Shugborough Estate complete with mansion house and costumed characters, while the striking cathedral city of Lichfield lets you explore more than 800 years of history. The National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas pays homage to Britain’s military past and modern day armed services in a beautifully tranquil setting and there are many more gorgeous gardens, castles and heritage sites to explore throughout Staffordshire.
From idyllic farmhouse retreats to chic city centre dwellings, holiday cottages in Staffordshire offer the full range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, making it the perfect choice for your ‘staycation’. Plumping for self-catering options also means you’ll be able to sample the tasty delights of Staffordshire’s local produce, from fresh farm produce to delicacies such as faggots and black pudding inspired by the nearby Black Country.
Offering all the natural charm you would expect from the English countryside, yet sprinkled with the unique character of the neighbouring working cities of Stoke, Wolverhampton and Birmingham, a holiday cottage in Staffordshire guarantees you a warm, welcoming and refreshing rural break in the heart of the country.
