  • “We really enjoyed our stay.”

    There was nothing to complain about. Our apartment was very clean, warm and had all we needed and more i.e. Netflix and cutlery. We will definitely recommend this holiday experience to our friends and family.

The property

Rugeley 1.2 miles.

Nestled on the outskirts of the historic town of Rugeley is the stunning studio apartment, Slitting Mill Annex.

Boasting remarkable countryside views, this lovely dwelling is an idyllic setting for a romantic retreat.

A desirable parking spot greets you at the rear of the home, leading you to a pathway that runs alongside the property, ideal for those with limited mobility and where you can soak in the breath-taking scenery before entering the abode.

Be welcomed by an open-plan living space, beautifully decorated in cool tones and benefiting from an abundance of natural light spilling through the patio doors, along with cosy underfloor heating; put your feet up and unwind on the sofa in front of your favourite Netflix series following an action-packed day.

Step over to the stylish kitchen nestled in the corner of the sociable space, housing all of the amenities necessary to conjure up a tasty meal for your loved one, dining at the intimate breakfast bar as you toast to a wonderful holiday together.

When sleep calls, a sumptuous king-size bed rests to the right of the room, with elegant, white-washed storage to unload your belongings to make this room your own.

In the morning, start your day with a refreshing shower in the modern shower room.

Spend a moment outside and enjoy your morning coffee with a leisurely seat at the outdoor table or savour a luxurious soak in the hot tub as you admire the rolling countryside before you.

The local pub is just a stone's throw away from the abode, so take a leisurely stroll to explore your new surroundings and enjoy a pint of real ale with a spot of global cuisine at The Horns Inn, or head to the nearby shop to stock up on local produce to cook up a storm in the comfort of your holiday home.

The property benefits from being next to Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with many walking trails and mountain biking routes; the area additionally boasts Segway Adventures, a selection of cafes, bike hires and the McArthur Glenn Designer Outlet!

There are opportunities to indulge in delicious food in the nearby town of Rugeley, which boasts various independent restaurants, as well as eccentric shops to buy unique souvenirs to take home with you.

Those seeking a bit of adventure will be pleased to know that Alton Towers theme park and the fabulous Twycross Zoo are also just a short drive away.

For a memorable day out, visit Go Ape Cannock to enjoy an adventurous treetop trail, where you can absorb the scenic views across the valley, or head further afield to Trentham Monkey Forest for a truly remarkable day spent just a few feet away from the monkeys.

The history buffs of the group will enjoy a visit to the National Trust's Shugborough Hall, with its exquisite art collection and wildlife-rich estate, and be sure to visit The National Memorial Arboretum in nearby Alrewas.

Take a drive to the bustling city of Lichfield, which is steeped in history with its stunning Cathedral and Georgian museums; take a fascinating tour around the former home of English physician Erasmus Darwin, or if that's not your thing, get dressed up to the nines and enjoy a night on the town at the many trendy bars that line the delightful streets.
