Where to Stay and Visit
Alton Towers is one of the most popular places to visit in Staffordshire. The latest ride at Alton Towers is the Wicker Man, loosely based on the 1973 film. Though who visit the place regularly may go for the season pass as it works out as better value. Alternatively you might like to look for cheap theme parks in the area (possibly Draytons which is more reasonably priced) and only use Alton Towers on special occasions.
Another popular destination is Weston Park in Weston-under-Lizard. This country house or mansion and park serves regularly as a wedding venue and is home to many festivals and other events.
The region around Stoke-On-Trent is known as Potteries due to a long history of creating ceramics in the region. For those who wish to know how engrained the porcelain industry is with the region you could visit the Stoke-On-Trent Potteries Museum and Art Gallery or the Gladstone Pottery Museum. Staffordshire University is located in the city while three other campuses are situated in Stafford, Lichfield and Shrewsbury in Shropshire.
As with the Peak District it might be worth staying in a different area of Staffordshire and visiting this region for a day, though it is probably more possible you’ll find somewhere that suits your low budget in this region.
Burton-on-Trent, although sharing the same river as Stoke has a rather different history. It’s biggest industry is brewing but it also has busy shopping areas like the Octagon. You should also visit the historic towns of Lichfield and Uttoxeter.
Different Accommodation Options
The first type of accommodation that is considered by many are the hotels. It is probably best to combine a budget price with some sense of style. The new Bath Hotel in Matlock is one example and as the name implies it has a number of water based relaxation areas; namely a indoor and outdoor swimming pool and a spa, a lifestyle which doesn’t strike many as cheap.
Alternatively you might like to try the Stone House Hotel which offers a romantic setting at a not too expensive price. For those looking for the cheap reductions the Cathedral Hotel in Lichfield might be somewhere to locate cut price offers. Described as a casual hotel, its Mock Tudor facade makes it feel quite homely, rather than cheap and nasty.
Some people might not familiar with the idea of boutique hotels, it just means a small hotels in a more urban setting rather than in the depths of the country. Such places might include St John House in Lichfield or the individual Quarry Walk Lodges in Cheadle. There’s certainly a great deal of choice in the boutique side of the hotels market.
You might wish to stay in a B&B in which case the one of the more elegant places to stay is undoubtedly Colton House. Despite the appearance of a romantic Georgian property nestled in the country the rooms have been designed with modernity in mind. It should come of no kind of shock that Colton House has won awards for its B&B service.
Another B&B you might try if want to enjoy getting away from it all is Dove Meadow. It is described as a place of tranquility and, for your comfort, with some of the rooms are described as en-suite.
For those who require a bed and breakfast deep in the countryside Highfield Farm could be worth a look. Its great selling point is unlike most B&Bs is that the guests can use the kitchen. Many people look to bed and breakfast as just somewhere to spend a night or two, but if you have a kitchen, why not spend longer and eat out? There’s no reason why bed and breakfast should be the humdrum relation to the hotel.
If you are someone who enjoys a spa retreat, one of the highest rated is Mottershall Oaks. Found slightly south of the A50 this spa markets itself as high end, featuring as it does not only hot tubs but also an extensive fitness centre. But as said above quite a number of hotels have spas to enjoy and it’s probably worth researching a bit more to find the best.
Many properties within the county are dog friendly as well or offer conference facilities when going on a business trip. Enjoy your stay in Staffordshire !
