Staffordshire

The county of Staffordshire is located in the West Midlands, neighbour to the county of Cheshire and one of the hidden gems of the English countryside. It enjoys some of the most spectacular and unique scenery in the UK, being wild and beautiful blend of expansive heather heaths and rugged Gritstone crags. Shropshire’s National Park has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers ample opportunity for walkers, hikers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts. However, there’s much more to this county than meets the eye.

Step Back in Time

If you’re interested in history then Staffordshire has got plenty for you to get to grips with. Stafford Castle was built by the Normans to protect the conquering forces from the hostility of the local population. This ragged ruin is still incredibly imposing and atmospheric and provides a fascinating day out. However, if you prefer your historic sites to be a bit more aesthetic, take a trip to the magnificent Shugborough House, which boasts huge gardens and its own arboretum.

Messing About on the River

Staffordshire is threaded together by a network of canals and waterways, having more than any other county in England. There are plenty of fishing opportunities for angling enthusiasts, or to enjoy the local scenery at its best visitors can hire narrow boats and take a lazy trip on the water.

Phenomenal Food

Visitors looking for good food won’t be disappointed. With plenty of fertile farmland surrounding the county, Staffordshire is becoming home to an ever-growing number of excellent restaurants. For a real treat, book a table at Hoar Cross Hall in Burton upon Trent, which offers fine food, superb service and stunning surroundings.
