    The cottage was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The cottage was in a nice area with several walks from the door. We really enjoyed the welcome pack that was left for us and the biscuits for the dog. I would highly recommend church view cottage and we would love to return at a later date.

  • "Church View Cottage has everything needed for a holiday stay."

    The biscuits and wine were much appreciated as well as the provision of basics - tea, coffee, milk and sugar. Abbots's Bromley is a very friendly village, especially if, like me, you are walking your dog. Everyone speaks to you. The "Top Shop" is a bit like Tardis. There are plenty of local walks and within 30 minutes driving many more. I can thoroughly recommend Chuch View Cottage for a relaxing and welcoming holiday.

    It's detached & compact but spacious & not overlooked. Clean, warm & comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. Good bathroom with a great shower. Comfortable bed. Sitting out area is secure for small dogs & next to it a larger area, for parking, with a ranch gate for large dogs. Field at the end of lane for dog walking plus lots of walks from the door. Easy access to roads for visiting nearby places. Welcome pack of wine, milk, tea, coffee, sugar & a special pack of biscuits. Thank you Liz & Amy. Looking forward to coming again soon.

    I decided to return for a Christmas break and the owners had made the cottage lovely and festive with lovely gifts of wine, mince pies and a great toy for Queeni my small terrier. Although the weather was as you'd expect in December, relaxation, peace and quiet was my goal and I got that in spades. The people of Abbots Bromley are so friendly and welcoming and the lane where the cottage is located is very quiet.For a light sleeper like me the blackout blind in the bedroom is brilliant. I joined a friend for lunch at The Crown during my stay and we enjoyed a lovely meal in the bar with my dog and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who welcomed us as warmly as any local.

    Paths run in all directions from the village and open countryside is about 50m from the front door. A secure courtyard garden gave us peace of mind for the dog and Liz, the owner, was very welcoming. There are 4 pubs within 5 mins walk (our choice was the Bagot Arms) and there is a shop within walking distance. There is plenty to do in the area - we visited the National Memorial Arboretum, Shugborough Hall (NT) and Lichfield with its magnificent cathedral. The village itself is very pretty with little traffic. This cottage and Abbots Bromley are strongly recommended.

  • "On arriving at Church view cottage we found it to be absolutely spotless, we were provided with the most generous gifts we have ever had in any holiday cottage we’ve used before."

    Thank you so much for that it was very much appreciated. The cottage had all the facilities you could possibly need. The bed was unbelievably comfortable so much so I want to purchase the same mattress. There was ample room for the 2 of us and our Cockapoo. The garden was well thought out and was excellent for our dog being enclosed. There was a patio area that was also separately enclosed so if you had a smaller dog that could maybe fit through or under the drive gates it would be completely secure in there. In response to the previous reviews the steps were not that high being one and a half red bricks on their side probably about 6 inches , the key safe is a standard key safe that since Covid has been the same on every cottage I’ve stayed in. The rooms are a decent size and plenty big enough for a couple and a dog. The floors are a mixture of tile and laminate so perfectly dog friendly. We only had one minor problem with the cottage and that was the shower when placed on the holder on the wall could not be adjusted and the angle was such that the water shot out past and over the shower door , we got water all over the bathroom floor the first morning. Once we realised this we used the shower hand held so wasn’t a problem. Also Sykes state Rugely Peak District in their description it is not in the Peak District it is in Staffordshire the Peak District being in Derbyshire is about an hour away which wasn’t a problem for us but maybe go anyone thinking that they are going to be staying in the Peaks without checking the location first. All in all a good stay and brilliant value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and staying again.

  • "This is a delightful little cottage, ideal for a couple and it's all on one level."

    The floors are tiled or wooden so easy to sweep and keep clean, especially if you have a dog. Lots of thought has been given to making this accommodation comfortable and welcoming and the bottle of wine, litre of milk, up-market biscuits and the provision of tea and coffee was much appreciated on arrival. There's a washing machine, lovely fridge-freezer but no dishwasher. The bed is not huge (4'6" or 5') and although there's a new mattress, it is quite soft; we are used to much firmer mattresses at home but that said we were in fact quite comfortable. There's lashings of hot water and the kitchen is very well equipped. We so appreciated the provision of a folder of information - especially the 4 local walks we could do around the village. It's a lovely place, architecturally very pleasing but with only one tiny local shop at one end of it, so no supermarket anywhere nearby.

The property

Rugeley 6.2 miles.

Set on a private lane, just off the high street in the village of Abbots Bromley near Rugeley, is this attractive, single-storey, detached cottage, Church View Cottage.

Just up the lane are several fields, while the high street is at the other end, plus the Staffordshire Way runs close by, meaning this property is well-placed for a couple who enjoy walking and want to explore their rural surroundings.

The gated driveway offers parking for up to four vehicles, and your dog can run around safely in the enclosed front garden, while you enjoy sitting out on the suntrap patio and firing up the barbecue for a delicious alfresco dinner.

Step inside the property to find an open-plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, complete with fridge/freezer, electric oven, microwave, kettle and toaster and a washing machine, should you need to clean any clothes.

There is a small, extendable dining table with seating for two, so you can enjoy a romantic home-cooked meal together, while the sitting room has a sofa you can relax on with a good book or to enjoy something on the wall-mounted Smart TV.

The double bedroom is bright and spacious, and has a travel cot available should you need it, there is also plenty of hanging and storage space for your belongings and the recently fitted, white-tiled bathroom has a shower over bath, so you can choose how you prefer to get ready each day.

The nearby field are great for dog walking, while Abbots Bromley centre has a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy, as well as a village hall, cricket club and children's playground.

Abbots Bromley is perhaps best known for the Horn dance; an annual quintessentially English folk dance dating back to the Middle Ages.

Six miles away is the market town of Rugeley, with ample wonderful dining out opportunities and fantastic markets where you can pick up local produce, should you wish to cook at home instead.

Formerly known for its iron workings and glass manufacturing, the town is very popular with tourists and provides a gateway into the Cannock Chase AONB, where you can visit the stately home of the National Trust's Shugborough Estate, enjoy an adventure day out, swinging through the treetops at at Go Ape Channock, plus enjoy a multitude of stunning walking and cycling trails, as well as many outdoor activities through forest, parkland and elevated heaths.

Join the Staffordshire Way, which spans the length of the county for 92 miles and even links to the Cheshire Gritstone Trail, the Heart of England Way and the North Worcestershire Path and enjoy walking by the water at nearby Blithfield Reservoir.

The town of Stafford is slightly further afield, with excellent shopping and dining out opportunities, as well as a timber-framed, Tudor museum and 900-year-old castle.

With fantastic walking and sight-seeing opportunities available to you, make Church View Cottage your cosy couple's retreat for your next Staffordshire getaway.
