    “Rose Cottage was a beautiful place to spend a few days this autumn.”

    Tracey was a lovely host - very approachable and friendly, and had left some gorgeous brownies for us on our arrival - much appreciated after a long drive with a cup of tea! All the Covid protocols were followed as well. ...

    Tracey was a lovely host - very approachable and friendly, and had left some gorgeous brownies for us on our arrival - much appreciated after a long drive with a cup of tea! All the Covid protocols were followed as well. There was a bit of an issue with the hot tub when we arrived, but Tracey got it sorted as soon as she could and was fantastic at keeping us updated. She also offered to let us stay an extra night to make up for us not being able to use it for the whole time, however we had to back for the Friday morning so elected to have a late check out instead. FYI - there are a lot of stairs at this property, and the stairs to the attic bedroom are particularly steep. Not a problem for us but we were aware that our parents would have struggled. On balance, would definitely stay again if we were in the area!

The property

This Staffordshire village of Forsbrook is the home to a pretty semi-detached property, Rose Cottage, situated close to all your amenities and nearby to lots of attractions.

With two bedrooms, this cottage is suitable for a small family or couples, with quality furnishings and well-presented décor.

Set over three floors, we begin on the ground-floor and enter straight into the sitting room; two inviting leather sofas are waiting to be snuggled up on in front of the woodburning stove and the huge 50” Smart TV, a fantastic source of entertainment on a rainy day or a quiet evening.

Move into the conservatory next door to relax in the rays from a plush chair, with another TV in this room (to prevent fighting over the channels!), it makes a lovely spot to sit with a morning brew.

Following into the dining room you will immediately notice the impressive decorative fireplace, lovingly restored and gelling perfectly with the oak oval dining table, a place for gathering together and enjoying excellent food.

From here we reach the kitchen with a country farmhouse theme showing in the stable door to the back garden, and the Range-style cooker and gas hob, you will love preparing everything from breakfast, to picnics to evening meals in this pleasant space.

Wander out of the stable door and take a look at the excellent garden, a gorgeous spot for a sunny day, the kids can run around on the lawn while the hot tub heats up within the secluded decking to the back, hop in for a relaxing dip and relax, you’re on holiday!

When another exciting day is done, head upstairs to the first floor to find the double bedroom and bathroom, where an elegant iron double bed frame sits under the exposed beams and across from the pretty antique dressing table and decorative fireplace, with white walls and beautiful bedding this is a wonderful place to rest your head.

The bathroom has a classic roll top bath with a modern shower overhead, the white fittings contrasting against the vibrant feature wallpaper wall.

Move further up another set of stairs to the twin room continuing the bright and airy décor of the rest of the property, a great spot for the little ones especially when you have a stairgate available, or if it’s for a couple then the beds can be put together to make a super-king via a mattress topper, the choice is yours.

A short stroll will bring you to the amenities of Forsbrook, dine out for an evening or two to take a night off from the kitchen at one of the several pubs serving lovely classic dishes, start the day with breakfast or brunch at one of the cafes before heading further afield.

Just under 10-miles away is the fantastic and thrilling Alton Towers so if you and your loved ones enjoy some breath-taking excitement then you can spend the day flying through the air on the many roller-coasters and rides that lie not far away.

For a less adrenaline-filled day, in the opposite direction is Trentham Gardens, a 725-acre estate to explore including within it a Monkey Forest with monkeys living in total freedom, you can walk along the woodland trails and observe their everyday antics for yourself!

The garden centre and shopping village make for lovely browsing with cafes and restaurants too so you can stop for a bite to eat, or for those who still want more active fun, then try out their Treetop Adventures with over 28 exciting treetop obstacles, maybe you’ll get some tips from the monkeys beforehand!

Whatever your choice of activity, Rose Cottage is a gorgeous property that will await your return after each exciting day out.
