The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Think Staffordshire cottages for all kinds of attractions amid wonderful surroundings.
Get out and about! Enjoy bracing walks across the sweeping moorlands and dales of the Staffordshire Peak District. Pedal along the National Forest's family-friendly trails. Or 'Go Ape' at Cannock Chase. Add hang gliding, caving, rock climbing and fishing…options are endless.
Feel the adrenalin rush and book one of our Staffordshire cottages close to a top family entertainment park. Possibly best known is Alton Towers, nestling in magnificently landscaped gardens and boasting over 125 rides and attractions. Watch your toddler's face light up at Drayton Manor's 'Thomasland', featuring all his favourite 'troublesome trucks'. Brighten up a rainy day at Waterworld, with its fantastic indoor roller coaster ride. Ski, board and skate at Snowdome. Or enjoy close encounters with Barbary macaques roaming free at Trentham Monkey Forest. For a getaway with children, a Staffordshire cottage is hard to beat!
Unravel the story of The Potteries at the Gladstone Pottery Museum in Stoke-on-Trent, birthplace of English ceramics. Or treat yourself to a special keepsake at the Wedgwood Visitor Centre.
Other interesting towns include Tutbury, Stafford and Lichfield, featuring a splendid, three-spired cathedral and also the Erasmus Darwin Centre, once home of Charles' grandfather.
What else? Murder Mystery Dinners at the Shugborough Estate. Ale tasting at the Bass Museum. And extraordinary Victorian gardens at Biddulph Grange.
Whether it's a weekend escape or a longer stay, a Staffordshire cottage is worth a closer look.
