  • "Lovely time even during a wet week in November!"

    Very rural, which we loved, and on the edge of the Staffordshire way. Spacious, Comfortable, clean, warm and reasonably well equipped meant we could just relax and enjoy being there when the weather was poor. Ideal for family with a small child being on one level (but need to bring own cot and high chair) . Great outside space with table and chairs for when weather permits. We enjoyed walks on Cannock Chase, by the canals in Great Haywood, and Dovedale in Derbyshire. Great food at the DunCow in Colton, cobwebs cafe in Abbots Bromley and Denstone farm shop a bit further away. A few local leaflets might help those who don’t know the area, but we would be very happy to return. Thank you.

  • "Walnut View looked wonderful on entering the property!"

    Sadly, the oven was full of crumbs and when I used the oven for the first time it smoked and set of the smoke alarm! So I needed to clean it and let the fat burn off! Some cupboards where not clean so I had to clean them! But worst of all was the stack of 12 plates that were all badly chipped and terribly marked and several others! After a good sort out I found a set of good plates and cereal bowls for our use! I found dirty plates and a dirty roasting dish too! Very disappointing!

  • "Overall we enjoyed our stay."

    However, there is room for improvement ie: Baking trays provided for oven. Instructions on when bins are emptied and where recycling items should go Would have been nice to have been able view the green area beyond the fenced in patio, even a slated fence would have been preferable. King size beds would have made a great improvement. Owners dogs barking was annoying at times. ,

  • "A beautiful cottage, well equipped and clean."

    We were a family of 7 including a baby and there was plenty of room for us all. The garden was immaculate and perfect for the kids having room to run around and the patio area was great for relaxing. Didn't get to use the BBQ due to the weather. Would definitely recommend to anyone and hope to return in the future.

  • "Wonderful property."

    Beds very comfortable. Kitchen supplies could do with addition of the basics that everyone needs, potato masher, fish slice, cleaning materials like a mop and bucket, facilities for hanging out washing, hair dryer. Tourist leaflets, instructions on bins even if owners manage themselves but a guest needs to know. Info on nearest doctor, pharmacy in times of emergency etc. We enjoyed the week tremendously

  • "The cottage is absolutely lovely, a beautiful house."

    We had everything we needed, the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, utensils, etc. The large American-style fridge freezer came in handy for all the bbq food and drinks. The lounge is large, with a big sofa and dining table. There was plenty of space for the whole family (7 of us) to gather for meals, game nights, and just chilling together. The patio is a good size, with plenty of furniture for sitting and enjoying drinks and food. There is a grass area to the side of the house, where our dog enjoyed a little run in the morning, but be mindful that this is not fully fenced in and dogs can get out in the road if they really want to. All in all, we had a great time and definitely recommend this place.

    Very comfortable and everything we needed for our week stay. Local village has some nice pubs. The host Lisa was super helpful during our stay.

  • "As I said on my note it was a lovely spacious sitting area both in and out ."

    Everything we could possibly need , lock on the toilet door needed ( when 6 occupy it ) and shower door needed attention, but minor things compared with the overall accommodation. Excellent for hikers , lovely quiet location , fabulous villages nearby and friendly pubs and tea rooms . We would not hesitate to recommend this place to hikers , walkers , dog owners , we had to drive a bit as we had an 80 year old with us , who incidentally was dancing on the large fenced off patio

  • "The cottage was lovely, just wasn’t very comfy for 6 adults sofas wasn’t big enough, beds Uncomfortable not enough kitchen utensils like scissors, vegetable knifes not enough saucepans and frying pans, mugs, no bins in the bedrooms."

    Some cleaning products and a hoover with proper attachments would of been useful if these things put right the cottage would be 10/10 Village was lovely and the pubs all dog friendly Yes I would recommend and return.

    Hi Sam, Thankyou for your feedback. We have added some more utensils and pans to the kitchen, ordered some toppers for the mattresses and added another chair to the sitting area. We hope these things didn’t ruin your stay and look forward to seeing you next time. Property Owner

    Fabulous property with so much space. Beautifully furnished & well equipped . We had a lovely stay A little more information such as how to program the dishwasher, adjust heating & where to empty the bins would have been useful. Noise from dogs barking in adjoining garden was a little irritating at times

The property

Resting in the countryside of Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire is this charming, detached, single-storey holiday cottage, Walnut View.

Just a stone's throw away from the Staffordshire Way long distance footpath; with views of an orchard, garden space for alfresco dining and all the necessary home comforts you need for a self-catering break, this property is ideal for a family or a group of friends sharing.

Driveway parking greets you on arrival, before stepping into the open-plan living space which is sure to be the social hub of the home.

Here, you can cook up a storm in the kitchen, dine while planning your group excursions, and unwind with a film on the TV or simply enjoying the view through the patio doors.

Moving through the cottage, you can find a shower room and a cloakroom where you can freshen up before bed.

Three well-presented double rooms, one of which with an en-suite shower room, have plenty of storage for your belongings and offer space to rest your eyes before an adventurous day.

Outside, make the most of the garden with a barbecue dinner in the warmer months, or simply enjoy your morning coffee out in the fresh air.

Just a short drive or picturesque stroll will take you to the centre of Abbots Bromley, where you can find a local shop to stock up on your essentials and a handful of pubs and eateries for the days you just don't feel like cooking.

Keen ramblers and cyclists will also be in their element thanks to the Staffordshire Way which spans an impressive 92 miles, meandering through some of Staffordshire's stunning scenery.

The Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is nearby and worth any avid walkers exploring on foot or by bike.

Thrill-seekers may want to spend a day at the popular Alton Towers, known for its adrenaline-inducing rides.

If you're looking for a little more hustle and bustle, you can make your way into Lichfield or for shopping and eating out, but if you're all about the stunning scenery, the Peak District National Park is also within reach.

Escape to Walnut View for a holiday to remember.
