Unique or Unusual

If you're looking for somewhere a bit different to stay, there are some great options in Staffordshire, like the CBeebies Land Hotel at Alton Towers Resort.

With themed rooms, exclusive entertainment for hotel guests, and meet and greets with your favourite CBeebies characters, it's an attraction in its own right and guarantees a memorable break for the family.

You'll also get early access to the theme park, free parking, a round of Extraordinary Golf and a full breakfast buffet.

Other unique or unusual places to stay in Staffordshire include the Drayton Manor Hotel, home of the Thomas & Friends themed rooms, and St George's Park, where the England men's football squad stayed and trained for the Euro2020 tournament.

Luxury and Indulgence

If you want to do your short break in style, then there are exclusive and luxurious places to stay in Staffordshire too.

The sprawling 1000-acre estate of Weston Park, in the south of the county on the Staffordshire-Shropshire border, has 28 superb bedrooms in the magnificent House, with all the heirlooms, antiques and period features you'd expect from an 18th Century stately home.

And there are six beautiful holiday cottages to choose from, including former hunting lodge The Knoll Tower, the luxury self-catering bolthole built in the late 1800s, and the stunning Temple of Diana, with its three opulently refurbished double bedrooms and breath-taking views from The Orangery.

In East Staffordshire, Hoar Cross Hall is another popular destination for indulgent romantic breaks, thanks to its decadent suites - some with their own private bars, hot tubs and balconies - while you'll find 12 individually-styled bedrooms full of Georgian splendour at St John's House in Lichfield.

Rural Retreats

Staffordshire is a mostly rural county, and that means we're blessed with plenty of places to stay with stunning views.

Escape from it all at the idyllic Beechenhill Farm, in the Staffordshire Peak District close to the stepping stones of Dovedale and the picturesque Manifold Valley - a wonderful spot for a walk or a bike ride.

For a romantic break for two, choose from Beechenhill Cottage and The Old Wash House, and for larger groups, the Cottage by the Pond is perfect for up to six people.

If you fancy a waterside retreat, try Blithfield Lakeside Barns, with six cottages overlooking Blithfield Reservoir, while if you prefer a more rugged view, the Roaches Holiday Cottages are hard to beat.

Our Self-Catering & Holiday Cottages in Staffordshire section has a huge selection of places to stay with stunning views.

Camping or Holiday Park

Leave the hustle and bustle behind and immerse yourself in lush green countryside at one of our top campsites and holiday parks in Staffordshire.

Silver Trees Holiday Park is in Cannock Chase, the UK's smallest mainland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a regular haunt for a herd of wild fallow deer, who appreciate the peace and tranquility as much as the guests.

There are excellent facilities including a tennis court and indoor pool, but no clubhouse, amusements or playground, ensuring the quiet ambience is maintained.

There's no shortage of entertainment though, with the walking and cycling of the Chase right next door, along with the thrills of Go Ape's high ropes courses and Segway tours, and the popular Forest Live concerts in the summer.

Elsewhere in the county, you can find Lower Micklin Touring Park, within easy reach of the thrills of Alton Towers and the walking and cycling of the Peak District, and Quarry Walk Park, home of camping pitches, luxurious new lodges, and a 46 acre woodland.
