lightwood stoke on trent

  • 4 of 5

The place was lovely, nice and clean and spacious, location was ideal for us. Unfortunately, we had no sooner unpacked when we received a phone call telling us our daughter had been in an accident and was in hospital, so we had to return home the next morning after only one night.

She is okay now and out of hospital.

Great value, nice outlook, good location

  • 4 of 5

The closest pub no longer serves food 🙁򠐠But the next nearest isn't far away. 🙂򠠠Lots of takeaways and eateries within a short drive. Good location for Alton Towers and all the potteries, as well as Stoke-on-Trent. Good facilities at the accommodation to cater for 4. I had not noticed on my booking that it was 2 double rooms and we have a girl and a boy but there was a blow up bed and spare bedding as well as an extra living room so potential teen tantrum crisis was averted. 👍𣐼􎿻

Great Christmas Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely pre Christmas break in this very comfortable house,

it was warm and cozy,the cleanliness of the property was excellent. the house had everything that we needed. It is decorated in 80 nostalgic style. It was very close to all amentities and walking distance from a nice pub which serves great value food. It is also not far from Trentham Gardens which was so pretty at Christmas. The only little problem for us is that the second bedroom did not have twin beds and my teenage son and daughter had to share, but nevertheless we had a great time and would not hesitate to return. Brillient value for money.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A warm and comfortable home that will truly allow the feeling on belonging in a neighbourhood. Much better than staying in hotels. Safe back garden for children. This part of Staffordshire has loads to offer and to enjoy...not just that it is close to Alton Towers. Close to good shopping areas and family pubs. The Gladstone Museum in Longton is a must see to get to know the history of the potteries. Recommend it for couples or families.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Lightwood Tavern at 100 Metres Nearest Motorway : 15 M6 at 4 Miles Car: recommended

Located in the heart of England the amount of attractions within short driving distance of the property are too numerous to list but include Alton Towers, Lichfield Cathedral, Chatsworth House etc (Google ‘Staffordshire Attractions’ to see what I mean!) and not far from Cheshire, Derbyshire and The Peak District.

Close by you will find Trentham Gardens, Monkey Forest, along with Gladstone Pottery Museum and other places associated with the potteries industrial heritage.

You will also find attractions like Stapeley Water Gardens, Bridgemere Garden World, Cotebrook Shirehorse Centre, Ironbridge, and Bakewell (home of the famous tart) all near by.

We are sure that when you have stayed once you will want to return again and again.

Easily Accessible from the M6 Motorway.
