Birchenfields Farm and Holiday Cottages is a family run business set in the magnificent Staffordshire countryside.

Recently enjoyed a 2 night stay with 2 kids aged 3 and 6. Convenient location for Alton Towers. Lovely pub with great food at the end of the road. Very private with friendly owners. Kids particularly enjoyed the play barn. Facilities in house were good. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again if visiting this area or returning to Alton Towers

Many thanks for your comments we would love to host you again

The best and unexpected thing was that...

Thank you for your lovely comments. The meeting room is new this year and we are pleased it added value to your stay at no additional cost. We look forward to seeing you again when there will be even more improvements

About the neighborhood
Birchenfields enjoys a beautiful rural location but has excellent and rapid access to shops and similar facilities. Alton Towers is 7 miles away and just a 20 min car journey will get you to the Peak District National Park. The Peak Wildlife Park is only just over 10 minutes away and includes a soft play area. There are a host of attractions in the area and within 60 minutes travel if you want to travel slightly further afield.

Beautiful walks abound and start at the property gates, for the more adventurous and energetic climbing and more robust walks are within 15 miles.

Trentham Gardens and Monkey World are nearby as are many pottery factory shops and the Wedgewood Museum

Unless you are a keen walker or cyclist then a car or similar is a must as we are over a mile to the nearest infrequent bus service.
