Although I talk non stop about all the wonderful thing s to see and do in the Staffordshire Peak District, it can't be ignored that one of the main reasons people visit the area is because of the pull of Alton Towers! Certainly a great day out for visitors and teenagers can apparently spend days there, but as always I want to encourage those who come to spread their wings a little and see a bit more Staffordshire!
Our eco acommodation is just 2 miles from Alton Towers and thus the ideal base to explore the area. A weeks stay aften means that families can "do" the Towers and satisfy the kids and then they can start to find out what else is on offer nearby. Alton Towers is set at the top of the Churnet Valley in an area of outstanding beauty and the contrast between the bussling theme park and the tranquil beauty of the valley is amazing - you get the best of both worlds for your holiday! Just 5 mins after you leave the excitement of the rides and thrills you can be back in the garden with a glass of wine and feet up!
Not only do you have very easy access to the Peak District National Park from Rowan House (our holiday let) you can also explore the Staffordshire Moorlands and world famous Trentham Estate all within 30 minutes. You will be amazed by the history, beauty and tranquility of the surrounding areas, often undiscovered and a surprising. Local food is a must to try along with some local ales - Freedom Brewery to name but one!
So really what I am saying is that the Staffordshire Peak District offers you the perfect holiday destination. You can get the ideal balance of excitement, entertainment, coutryside, fabulous food and friendly welcome.
