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.

    Really loved the location, it was stunning. Only confusion was that we were told that we were on pitch 6 with water and drains and we weren't, we didn't have water on our pitch but just used the next pitch's so it wasn't a problem. Carly apologised for this the following day.

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.
