In Staffordshire, there's something for everyone and plenty of picturesque Staffordshire holiday cottages to make a base and explore the miles of undisturbed cycleways, quiet routes through ancient wood, towering crags, gentle green hills and limestone dales. Found to the west of the Midlands in England, Staffordshire is a unique and beautiful county, filled with history, nature and charm. Also a part of the breath-taking National Forest, Staffordshire boasts magnificent views and fun activities for friends and for families. Rent a holiday cottage with the whole family and get ready for action-packed days and fun adventures – or explore all Staffordshire has to offer at a lazy, peaceful pace. For nature-lovers, there is the breath-taking beauty of the Peak District National Park, the National Forest and tranquil Cannock Chase- amazing landscapes to inspire or challenge miles of peaceful canals along which to cruise, walk, fish or cycle.
Spend a day cycling through the National Park’s Peak District, stopping to gaze at the horizon, spotting different wildlife along the way. For any bird-watchers, be sure to wear your most comfortable shoes and bring your binoculars, as this area is home to many different species. Stoke-on-Trent is the largest city in Staffordshire, and if a night on the town is what you are after, then this is the perfect place for it, what with its comedy clubs and cosy bars.
Alternatively, stroll through the Trentham Estate gardens, also in the city, which is stunning whether you are watching the flowers of summer bloom or the delicate frost of winter. Trentham Estate is also home to a shopping centre with an extensive range of shops and plenty of establishments to eat. If you’re visiting with the kids, don’t forget to visit the Monkey Forest, where these lovely animals are free to roam wild. Cleary, the kids will never be bored in Staffordshire – not when Alton Towers and Drayton Manor Theme Park are in the area! Come to the West Midlands and see what this marvellous county is all about.
