The White Lodge: Grass pitches

General

  • Family-friendly Staffordshire site by the river Trent
  • A 15-minute drive from Stafford and a mile from the Shugborough Estate
  • Easy access to canalside trails; five minutes' walk from a farm shop

Get away from home and back to nature at The White Lodge, a family-run site by the river Trent and right on the edge of Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With 10 acres of well-kept, secure grounds, this Staffordshire spot scores top marks for its access to scenic paths and bike trails, its location a mile's walk from the National Trust's Shugborough Estate, and the sheer peace of the place.

Great Haywood village, where there's a garden centre and a convenience store, is half a mile away. Still closer to base (around five minutes' walk away) is the neighbourhood canalside farm shop and café, making it simple to source fresh produce or barista-made hot drinks while away from home. To sample the fully-fledged floating experience there's a narrowboat hire centre a few minutes' stroll away.

Bring a rod and/or binoculars if heading down to the Trent and canal – river fishing is available hereabouts, and birdlife abounds along these peaceful stretches of water. The pitches are also home to plenty of nature and have substantial tree coverage for those sunny days when all you want to do is chill out in the shade. (The grounds are flat, so there's little risk of rolling downhill mid-snooze and waking up on someone else's pitch…).

Head here if you're partial to a sizzle on a summer's afternoon – barbecues are allowed as long as all flames are kept well clear of the grass. Well-behaved dogs are also encouraged to tag along.

    Great site, plenty of space, quiet and relaxing. Plenty of places to walk shops are close by plus the Canalside Cafe and Farm shop are not far away. The young lady who showed us to our pitch is very polite,helpful and friendly. Will stay again when in the area.

    Disliked: 

    Only downside is no Showers or Toilets although this was not a problem for us as we have our own.

    Everything!!!!!!
    From booking till leaving to go home.
    Everything was fantastic .
    The fields were flat, perfect for pitching our tent.
    The grounds were well looked after,the grass freshly cut and the trees all trimmed
    The toilets and showers and pot wash areas were all spotless throughout our stay.
    We booked here to go to Alton Towers for 2 days of our stay so we didn't need facilities like pub pool etc.
    Just a few minutes away from the camp is the river and a canal with a canalside cafe . We walked down the canal and and ended up walking into the centre were we spotted a pub were we went for a drink and ended up having our tea there which was delicious.
    If we are in the area again we wouldn't look anywhere else to book we would be booking here for sure

Very proud site owners and so they should be!27/09/2021

    There's nothing to not like about this site. Our second visit this month for a weekend break as we live locally. The owners should be super proud of what they are achieving here. There's a camping field only 100 yards away from here that doesn't have cut grass, isn't all that level and has just a single portaloo and charges the same price per night as The White Lodge does. Here you'll find beautifully maintained grounds, perfectly flat pitches, hot showers, toilets, a pot washing area and owners that never seem to dissappear. They are constantly working hard, speaking to guests and finding something to do.
    For the quality of this site, I personally think they are "too cheap" and I've told them so. This site is an absolute gem! If you haven't stayed here, then you will not be disappointed!!
    Keep up the good work, and we look forward to a few visits throughout 2022. :)

Ideal location but sadly26/09/2021

  • Electric grass tent pitch

    Flat pitch with easy access to electric pick up. Good location

    Disliked: 

    Pitches were all a bit of a free for all. There was no guidance provided before hand so unsure where to check in or any rules. No information given on check in about where I could walk my dog or any inside tips etc. It was unclear at the site where you were allowed and where you weren’t. But the lady who did show me to the pitch was very friendly.

    Very noisy at night, loud music and shouting until late. Children were using electric toys around all the tent pitches with no consideration to other people.

    Took my dog for a wander in the early hours and there was a strong smell of cannabis around.

    It was a very convenient site location wise, but maybe there needs to be a quiet area for tents that’s away from big groups who are there to party.

    I would stay again, because it isn’t the sites fault that some guests were inconsiderate. But maybe there needs to be rules about noise, drug use and children’s activities

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The edge of Cannock Chase is a couple of minutes' walk away, meaning there's lots of opportunity to get out on walks and mountain biking jaunts. A few more unusual activities are also within reach – treetop zipwires and obstacle courses at Go Ape Cannock (15 minutes' drive) and Clip 'n Climb Stoke's climbing wall (15 minutes) are both recommended. If you'd rather ascend skywards in a more leisurely fashion you could also book a hot air balloon flight (five minutes).

For kids who'd rather investigate life at ground level, Amerton Farm (10 minutes) should supply a good few hours of animal-based entertainment. Next door, carry on with rides aboard the small-scale trains at Amerton Railway (10 minutes) or spend a spell at the village's hands-on arts and crafts centre.

For a really special treat, you could also up sticks and make for Alton Towers (35 minutes), where a theme park, spa and golf course should keep almost all comers happy.

Must see

  • Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum & Bookshop (11.4 miles)
  • Sudbury Hall (11.7 miles)
  • Wedgwood Visitor Centre (12.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Shugborough Estate (1.0 miles)
